shutterstock_394494271Diet and exercise aren’t always enough to get rid of bothersome, localized, disproportionate deposits of excess fat. That’s why Liposuction has been the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure for many years.

Liposuction can help slim many areas of the body, including a double chin. It may not be the appropriate procedure choice in all cases, and there are limitations as to the amount of fat that can safely be removed in a single operation. Bear in mind, too, that Liposuction is not a substitute for weight control. Nevertheless, when Liposuction is indicated, Dr. Munasifi can provide you with a very satisfying result*.

Dr. Munasifi will listen to your concerns about your appearance and create a customized surgical plan for you. His training and years of experience allow him to apply both science and art to your surgery.

If you also have loose skin in a particular area, you might need surgery to excise that skin and tone the area. These procedures include an Arm Lift, Thigh Lift, Tummy Tuck, and Body Lift.

What areas does Liposuction treat?

  • Thighs
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Upper arms
  • Chin, chin and neck
  • Inner knee
  • Chest area
  • Calves and ankles
  • Back

What procedures complement Liposuction?

Liposuction is often done as part of a body contouring procedure, such as a Thigh Lift, Arm Lift, Body Lift, or Tummy Tuck.

Fat grafting is also frequently done concurrently with Liposuction. In this case, the fat taken from one area is treated and re-injected into an area that needs more volume, such as the face or buttocks.

What happens during Liposuction?


How long does Liposuction last?

Dr. Munasifi’s Liposuction techniques are long-lasting, and pockets of fat do not usually recur. New pockets of fat can develop, however. The best way to help your results last longer is to maintain a steady weight.

When can I return to work after Liposuction?

All of our patients are able to leave the house the day after their procedure. Many of our patients return to office work within 3-5 days*.

What is recovery like after Liposuction?

Initially, you may feel somewhat stiff and sore. The day after surgery, you should be up and walking around to promote normal circulation. You should expect a fair amount of swelling and bruising in the two weeks following your procedure.
