Liposuction Surgery

Home » Body » Liposuction

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, helping you achieve a more sculpted and contoured appearance. Dr. Singh offers liposuction surgery in Minneapolis to help you achieve your desired body contours.

Suction Away Unwanted Fat Deposits

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure aimed at reshaping the body by removing localized pockets of excess fat. This procedure is well-suited for individuals who are close to their ideal body weight but struggle with stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise. It is important to note that liposuction is not a solution for weight loss or obesity but rather a method for refining body contours and achieving a more proportionate appearance.

Our qualified surgeons use a thin tube called a cannula to suction out unwanted fat cells from targeted areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, and more. This can help patients attain a more toned and balanced physique, enhancing their self-confidence and body image. In some cases, the harvested fat cells can also be transferred to other areas requiring augmentation, such as the breasts (breast fat grafting) or buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift).

Liposuction FAQs

Who is a suitable candidate for liposuction?

Liposuction is meant for individuals who are near their desired body weight but have stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise. Good candidates are generally in good health, have realistic expectations, and understand that liposuction is not a weight loss solution.

Is liposuction a weight loss method?

No, liposuction is not intended for weight loss. It is a body contouring procedure aimed at improving the appearance of specific areas by removing excess fat. The amount of fat removed during liposuction is typically limited to ensure patient safety. If you are overweight or struggling with obesity, you will need to get close to your desired weight before liposuction surgery in Minneapolis.

What is the recovery time after liposuction?

Recovery time can vary from person to person and depends on the extent of the procedure and the areas treated. In general, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort for a few days to a few weeks. Most individuals can return to light activities within a week or two, with full recovery taking several months.

Are the results of liposuction permanent?

Liposuction provides long-lasting results, as the fat cells removed do not typically grow back. However, maintaining a stable weight through a healthy lifestyle is essential to prevent the existing fat deposits from expanding.

Will liposuction leave visible scars?

Liposuction incisions are small and strategically placed to minimize scarring. Over time, these incisions fade and become less noticeable. However, individual scarring patterns may vary.

Does liposuction help with cellulite?

Liposuction primarily targets deep fat layers, so its effectiveness in reducing cellulite may be limited. However, in some cases, liposuction can improve the appearance of mild to moderate cellulite by reducing fat volume in the treated area.

Can liposuction tighten loose skin?

Liposuction surgery in Minneapolis may provide some degree of skin tightening, but it is not a substitute for procedures specifically designed to address significant skin laxity, such as a tummy tuck or arm lift. Your surgeon can advise you on the right approach for your individual concerns.
