Many individuals from Ann Arbor, Canton, Plymouth, and other southeastern Michigan cities find it’s difficult to reduce their stubborn fat deposits with diet and exercise alone.

Our board-certified plastic surgeons take the time to fully understand your aesthetic goals to create the beautiful, natural-looking results you desire.

Patients who are living with excess localized fat that is resistant to diet and exercise can often benefit from liposuction. Most patients are near their ideal weight and want permanent contour changes. At our practice in Ann Arbor, liposuction is a very versatile procedure our plastic surgeons use to treat many areas including the chin and neck, upper arms, abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, flanks, and inner knees.
If is important to understand that liposuction is not intended to be a method of weight loss. The intended effect is mainly aesthetic, slimming out areas with stubborn fat pockets for a slimmer body silhouette. Most candidates are within 30 pounds of their ideal body weight. A consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons can help to best determine if liposuction is right for you.
Liposuction will help improve the contour and proportion of the treated areas, resulting in a more flattering physique.
Our board-certified plastic surgeons have more than 50 years of combined experience in all facets of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. As a qualified and compassionate team, they share a goal of providing a safe and rewarding plastic surgery experience while creating exceptional results worthy of your trust.
Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia with sedation. During the procedure, small suction tubes (cannulas) are inserted through very short incisions made in inconspicuous locations. The fat is then removed from the body, creating a slimmer, more proportionate shape.

With liposuction, the patient goes home with a compression garment (or tape) covering the treated areas. Compression is advised for 3 to 6 weeks to help reduce swelling. Once the soreness decreases, patients find it more comfortable to wear Lycra® or spandex exercise pants. Initial discomfort during the first 2 to 5 days is easily controlled with oral medication. Bruising and swelling usually subside in 3 to 4 weeks. The final result takes shape within 3 to 6 months.
