Liposuction

Now among the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, liposuction (also known as “lipoplasty” or “suction lipectomy”) sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat from areas around the thighs, knees, buttocks, waist, hips, abdomen, chin, cheeks, neck and upper arms.

Liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise, but the procedure can eliminate areas of fat that are unresponsive to typical weight-loss methods, and improve body contour.

Dr. Medalie typically performs liposuction as an outpatient procedure. He specializes in power assisted body sculpting, “tumescent liposuction”, “super-wet liposuction” and ultrasonic liposuction.

*Plastic surgery results can vary from patient to patient and are not guaranteed.
