Liposuction is sometimes called lipoplasty, suction lipectomy or even liposculpture. This body contouring procedure is intended for both men and women and improves various shapes and proportions by removing undesirable fat deposits. The procedure is meant for body contouring. It is not a treatment of obesity. A suction tube is inserted through a tiny incision placed in an inconspicuous location on the skin. With gentle pressure, fat cells are extracted through this tube. The result is a re-sculpting of bulging areas into more attractive contours.
Why get Liposuction?

Am I a candidate for Liposuction?
The best candidates for body sculpting are men who:
- are in good health.
- have tried diet and exercise without success.
- have distinct areas of localized fats.
- have realistic expectations.
- understand that liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss.
What areas are treated by Liposuction?
Common treatment areas include the Love handle (waist), Tummy (abdomen), arms, neck, back, chest, calves, and even knees. Because of this wide application, liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Various liposuction technologies exist today and board-certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Okoro are most qualified to examine these options and deliver the safest treatment.
They following areas can safely undergo liposuction in Atlanta.
- Chest / Breast
- Abdomen (Stomach area)
- Waist / Love handle
- Thigh, Knee, and legs
For optimal results, treated areas should blend with adjacent tissues. While liposuction Atlanta can dramatically enhance contours in areas that do not respond to diet and exercise, liposuction is not a treatment for obesity.
In fact, liposuction is most successful in patients with good skin tone who are at or near their ideal body weight.
What happens during a consultation?
During your consultation, Dr. Okoro will review with you several different liposuction techniques that are in use today. To determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction, Dr. Okoro will review your health history and perform an examination during your consultation. He will assess skin laxity, fat deposits, and existing contours. We will also take preoperative photos during your visit. During the consultation, Dr. Okoro will understand your goals and desires and he will review available options and techniques.
What is Liposuction surgery?
Essentially all liposuction procedures involve the injection of liposuction fluid, also known as tumescent fluid. This injected solution minimizes bruising and blood loss and also helps control postoperative pain. Liposuction performed with this solution is often called tumescent liposuction.
In addition, liposuction is also characterized by the technology that disrupts fat. Traditional liposuction often referred to as suction-assisted liposuction or SAL, involves removing fat with a cannula attached to a suction apparatus. Power-assisted liposuction, or PAL, is similar except that the cannula vibrates to increase efficiency. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction, or UAL, incorporates sound wave technology to disrupt fat and can be helpful in dense, fibrous tissue. Laser-assisted liposuction uses a laser to disrupt fat, which is then sucked out with the cannula. Dr. Okoro is an expert and experienced in all of those techniques.
Dr. Okoro will outline the advantages and disadvantages of these different techniques as they relate to your treatment goals. We usually perform liposuction as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia without or without sedation. It can also be performed under general anesthesia, depending on the extent of treatment. We instruct all liposuction patients to wear a compression garment after surgery to reduce swelling. Bruising and numbness are variable but always temporary. Light exercise is encouraged soon after surgery but strenuous activity is limited for at least several weeks. Patients may drive and return to work once they discontinue narcotic pain medicine.
How much does it cost?
The cost of liposuction varies based on the extent of your surgery and the cost of any additional surgery. The average cost of liposuction is around $3000. Remember, the total cost depends on the number of areas needing liposuction. Everyone is different. The best way to know the cost of your liposuction is to be evaluated during a consultation. Please review our special offer area for special offers on liposuction. To make liposuction affordable for you, we offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask.
