Liposuction Candidates 

Liposuction is not a weight loss solution. Instead, it is designed to help patients within 30 percent of their ideal weight achieve lean, defined contours. Ideal candidates are non-smokers in good overall heath with realistic expectations who wish to reduce unresponsive fat deposits in the:

  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Calves
  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Back
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks
  • Neck
  • Face

During your initial consultation, Dr. Hurwitz will discuss the procedure with you in great detail and take note of your goals to determine if liposuction is right for you.

The Liposuction Procedure

Dr. Hurwitz provides traditional liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, and radio frequency-assisted liposuction. Each requires small incisions in the treatment area that allow Dr. Hurwitz to remove fat tissue using a long hollow tool called a cannula. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction uses ultrasound energy emitted through the cannula to separate fat cells so they can be more easily extracted. Radio frequency-assisted liposuction achieves the same effect using radio frequency.

All three types of liposuction can create beautiful results. The ultrasound- and radio frequency-assisted methods are good options for areas that have more tightly compressed fat, such as the back. These methods can be especially effective for treating gynecomastia. They usually result in less bruising and discomfort following surgery compared to traditional liposuction. Dr. Hurwitz will help you determine what type of surgery is best for your needs.*

Liposuction Recovery

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure, and you will be able to return home the day of surgery. Dr. Hurwitz may provide a compression garment to facilitate healing as your skin adjusts to your refined contours. You may experience some bruising and swelling that will subside over time. Dr. Hurwitz will advise you concerning the best way to cope with any physical discomfort, and he will monitor your recovery during follow-up visits. It can take several months for the extent of your results to become fully apparent. Dr. Hurwitz will provide explicit instructions for your recovery to ensure you heal properly and experience the maximum benefits of liposuction.*
