What is Liposuction?

Virtually all patients would like to have a more defined and well-proportioned body. These body types are often associated with good health and overall wellness. While many of us try to achieve such a physique by way of a healthy diet and exercise regimen, these protocols are often not able to address poor definition and excess pockets of fat in certain areas of the body.

In recent years, science has shown that fat accumulation in areas such as the hips, thighs, abdomen, upper arms, submental region (double chin), and knees has a genetic component that is simply too complex to be treated by conventional weight loss methods.

Our liposuction in Boston, also referred to as liposculpture, targets specific areas of the body, slimming and reshaping them by removing localized pockets of fat. This ultimately gives the body more symmetry and better proportions. The procedure is well-suited for patients of all genders, providing them with better contours and a major boost in confidence.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

You may be a good candidate for liposuction or liposculpture if you:

  • Have reached or are near your desired body weight: Liposuction is best performed to reduce localized fat deposits in patients who are happy with their overall weight.
  • Have stubborn fat deposits on the hips, abdomen, thighs, neck, or chest that will not respond to exercise and diet: Liposuction is designed to reduce fat bulges and sculpt beautiful body contours.
  • Have good skin elasticity: Your skin should have enough elasticity to contract to your new body contours after excess fat is removed.
  • Feel that certain areas are disproportionate with the rest of your body: In some cases, reducing fat in a particular area can bring the entire body into better balance.

What Are the Benefits of Liposuction?

Liposuction in Boston is a popular cosmetic treatment with hundreds of thousands of procedures performed every year. It is certainly one of the more popular procedures in our Greater Boston Area or Worcester offices. Dr. Montilla is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has years of experience with liposuction in Boston and performs arguably the best results in the area.

Its popularity can be attributed to the benefits it provides to patients, including:

  • Safe removal of stubborn fat
  • Sculpting of areas not impacted by diet and exercise
  • Reduction or improvement in the appearance of cellulite
  • Sleeker, more graceful silhouette
  • Enhanced overall appearance
  • Improved self-confidence and self-esteem

A liposuction procedure can help streamline and contour your body when diet and exercise have failed. With advanced liposuction techniques, you can expect a faster, easier recovery than with liposuction of the past. Many patients return to work within a few days after the procedure.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Liposuction?

Liposuction can successfully treat almost any part of the body where stubborn fat pockets exist. The following are common treatment areas for liposuction:

  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Abdominal area
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Double chin
  • Neck
  • Bra roll
  • Back
  • Calves
  • Upper arms
  • Ankles
  • Around the knees

How Does Dr. Montilla Perform Liposuction?

Liposuction procedures can best be defined as the surgical removal of fatty tissue from problem areas of the body, permanently reshaping the region. The first step involves making a small incision through which a thin metal tube (known as a cannula) can be inserted. Once the cannula is inserted into the fatty tissue, Dr. Montilla makes gentle motions, using it to ‘vacuum’ out all of the fatty tissue and reduce the volume of the area. This ultimately improves the patient’s contours and makes their body appear better proportioned, properly reflecting the patient’s healthy lifestyle.

It is vital that patients be at or close to their ideal weight before receiving liposuction in Boston. It is not designed to remove cellulite and achieve major changes in weight. It is simply a technique that reduces fat in stubborn areas and is performed on an outpatient basis. It can be carried out either in a hospital setting with light sedation or in our office operating room with a local Novocain-type of anesthesia. When performing liposuction, Dr. Montilla makes all incisions along the natural creases of the body to ensure that any scars will be well hidden from view.

Patient Testimonials

What is the Recovery from Liposuction?

After undergoing liposuction in the Greater Boston Area or Worcester locations, patients will experience some swelling for a few months. Once the swelling has gone down, which can take as long as a full month, the final results of the procedure will be apparent. It is recommended that patients perform lymphatic drainage massages regularly to help speed up the recovery process. Most patients will need to stay home from work for the first week of recovery. The stitches are typically removed from the incision sites after 1-2 weeks. Patients will also be able to receive prescription pain medication following their surgery to help mitigate discomfort.

Results will continue to improve over the course of 3 to 6 months. That said, patients should be advised that any large weight gain can potentially distort the results of the procedure. While liposuction in the Greater Boston can achieve some remarkable results, patients must keep in mind that a healthy lifestyle and exercise regimen are vital for the longevity of their results.

Liposuction FAQ's

How much weight do you lose with liposuction?

Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. However, most people lose about five pounds of fat. Liposuction is approved by the FDA for the removal of up to 11 pounds of fat.

How many inches can lipo remove from your waist?

Most patients will lose between one and two inches from their waist with targeted liposuction in this area.

Can fat come back after lipo?

Liposuction permanently removes fat cells from the treatment area. Fat cells will not grow back in that area. However, they can grow in other areas if you gain weight.

Does lipo leave scars?

Scarring depends on age, genetics, and other factors, but scars are generally quite minimum, about the size of a small dot. Scars will likely fade over the next months.

What is the ideal BMI for liposuction?

This can vary from person to person. Typically, a BMI under 30 is ideal. A BMI of 30 or higher can put patients at a greater risk for complications.
