What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction, or suction-assisted lipectomy, is a technique use to remove localized collections of excess fat. Deposits of fat on the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, knees, calves, ankles, arms, upper torso, chest, neck and chin and face can be removed. Tumescent and Fisher techniques are utilized. Liposuction is not a substitute for weight reduction, or a cure for obesity, but rather removes localized areas to improve the body contour. With proper diet and exercise the results of liposuction are long lasting and dramatic.

Can I really get the results that I want?

Yes. In making your desires known, Dr. Fisher, who is also an artist and sculptor, will work with you to achieve the results that you want.

Are there risks?

Potential risks of surgery and potential complications, such as infection or localized collections of blood, are uncommon and can be treated. Risks of complications can be minimized by following Dr. Fisher's instructions on follow-up care during the healing process.

Will anyone know?

No, unless you tell them. Most patients report that friends and family remark about their losing weight. Again, proper diet after after surgery will enhance your recovery time and give you long term satisfaction.

Does the fat come back?

No. Once the fat cells are removed, they do not come back. A balanced diet is recommended for maintenance of your new image, along with modest exercise.

Is it painful?

With our special techniques, most patients do not complain of pain, but report feeling some stiffness which is relieved with analgesics. Patients are able to return to work and moderate social activities in a few days.



Patient Testimonials

For years I tried every diet and exercise technique I could to lose weight. Although I was overweight, my worst areas were my thighs (saddlebags) and the areas below the waist. Even when I got down to below my normal weight at one time, my 'saddlebags' and tummy were still noticeable. Eventually I realized those areas were genetically predisposed to store FAT. My mother had a large tummy and my aunt had 'saddlebags'. Finally, I gave myself the best gift I ever could -Liposuction of those areas. It was a major decision to make, yet one I do not regret. My ten-year wedding anniversary was approaching and I decided that rather than getting a large carat diamond, I would be much happier with a new me! The first day I went out in public, people noticed right away, saying,' You've been losing weight, haven't you?!' Barbara O.

I was so amazed to see how much nicer my clothes fit after I had liposuction. It reduced my waistline, arms, and thighs. I went on a shopping spree and was able to buy clothes that I thought never looked good on me. The liposuction has made a huge difference in my life. I received so many compliments now from my husband, co-workers, and friends that itís even given me the push I needed to maintain a healthier lifestyle by eating right and exercising. Lisa B.

I had liposuction on my thighs and tummy. During my consultation the surgeon went over all the areas that I was concerned about, Iím very pleased with the results on my tummy and thighs, which I feel could have only been accomplished through liposuction. Marcy C.
