What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a technique to remove unwanted fatty tissue and sculpt the target area. Each procedure at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation is custom-designed for each patient. During the outpatient procedure, Dr. Miller, Dr. Doherty, Dr. Sanan, or Dr. Tandon will vacuum away the fat cells. Liposuction can improve appearance and the benefits can last for years.
This body contouring procedure provides excellent body sculpting results on its own. However, patients can also pair the technique with additional aesthetic procedures, such as breast augmentation, breast reduction, mommy makeovers, tummy tuck (in case there is excess skin), or neck lift, to provide the ideal benefits. If the patient has a significant amount of loose skin post-fat removal, combining liposuction with a tummy tuck or other skin-tightening procedures can help achieve a smoother result. During the liposuction consultation appointment, our liposuction surgeons Dr. Leonard Miller, Dr. Sean Doherty, Dr. Akshay Sanan, or Dr. Vickram Tandon will go over the technique(s) necessary for successfully achieving the desired results.
Liposuction Is Commonly Used to Treat:
- Lower Back
- Upper Arms
- Breast Tissue
Had some stubborn fat underneath and around my chin and was looking for a more defined chin and jawline. I had neck liposuction with thermi tightening and I’m ecstatic with my results. The procedure itself was quick and painless, Dr. Miller clearly knows what he is doing (in fact, he developed the technology and the technique used to conduct the thermitight procedure). Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great improvement with minimally invasive surgery and almost no down time.
The Ideal Candidate For Liposuction
Liposuction can benefit almost anyone who is in overall good health, yet unhappy with isolated areas of fat that have been unresponsive to diet or exercise. It’s especially satisfying for the surgeon to see a happy patient after the procedure. Potential patients should understand the liposuction technique and recovery requirements, and they should have realistic expectations for their results. Candidates for liposuction should also be aware of the issue of loose skin post-operation. Maintaining a stable weight, preferably close to one’s ideal body weight, prior to the surgery will ensure consistent results post-procedure. An ideal candidate will also be a nonsmoker, as nicotine can delay proper healing and cause serious complications. Men who suffer from enlargement of male chest tissue may want to opt for this procedure if they have gynecomastia.

The Liposuction Procedure
Our medical team, consisting of Dr. Leonard Miller, Dr. Sean Doherty, Dr. Akshay Sanan, and Dr. Vickram Tandon, ensures that each liposuction is a safe procedure. These liposuction procedures are performed at an accredited, area surgical center. The provider normally has a board-certified anesthesiologist administer general anesthesia during the procedure. Each liposuction procedure will vary in length according to the patient, the treatment area, and the extent of correction, and it generally takes from one to three hours. Patients are back at home resting the same evening, marking the end of their day of surgery.
To start the liposuction procedure, the doctor will perform several small incisions along the treatment area. Following this, they insert a slender cannula or tube into these cuts. They will then inject a tumescent solution containing saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine into the treatment area, effectively hydrating and further numbing the tissue. The medicated fluid will cause the fatty tissue to swell and become firm. The surgeon will then break up the fat cells with options like suction-assisted liposuction or power-assisted liposuction (PAL) before vacuuming the fat through the cannula, using a specially designed suction pump. Dr. Miller and Dr. Doherty will continue this process until the desired results have been achieved.
The surgeon can utilize several different liposuction techniques, depending on the needs of each patient. The best method of liposuction will depend on a variety of factors and will be discussed in detail during the consultation.
- Tumescent Liposuction: This method begins with a large volume of medicated fluid, which stiffens the fatty tissue for successful removal. This medication mix also reduces bleeding and post-op bruising. Tumescent liposuction is the first choice for our doctors, especially when treating a large area.
- Laser Liposuction: Also known as laser-assisted liposuction, this technique uses laser light to melt away large areas of fat. The surgical procedure is easier on tissues than traditional liposuction, offering excellent results with shorter downtime, less bruising, and potential improvement in skin laxity.
- Syringe Suction: Designed for the most delicate of areas, like the face and neck, syringe liposuction does not involve a suction pump. The syringe is able to gently, and accurately, achieve a meticulous contour and detailed results.
Each patient is unique and individual results may vary*
Recovery And Results From Liposuction
Our team streamlines liposuction recovery using modern techniques. Depending on the extent of correction, the expected recovery time from liposuction is 1-2 weeks. Many people are back at work in less than a week. Patients can gradually resume light exercise, but they should postpone heavy lifting and strenuous movements for 3 to 6 weeks.
Initially, patients should expect some swelling, bruising, tenderness, and mild discomfort. Temporary numbness or burning sensations are common but will quickly improve. The patient will need to wear a compression garment for 2 to 3 weeks, keeping swelling to a minimum and encouraging healing.
While patients may notice some results from liposuction right away, it will take several weeks to see the full results, as the swelling continues to go down and tissues heal. The benefits of liposuction can continue to improve for six months or more. While the excised fat cells will not reappear, surrounding tissues can still change with weight fluctuations, so it is important to commit to a healthy diet and consistent exercise routine. To help maintain the results from liposuction, the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation can suggest additional treatments, such as Botox®, medical facials, and CoolSculpting.
The exact cost of liposuction surgery will depend on the number of treatment areas and the extent of the desired correction. During your initial consultation appointment with Dr. Leonard Miller, Dr. Sean Doherty, Dr. Akshay Sanan, or Dr. Vickram Tandon, the price of your treatment will be determined. While the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation does not accept insurance, we offer a variety of payment options, including healthcare financing through CareCredit.

I worked with Dr. Leonard Miller back in February. I had submental liposuction and lip fillers done. My only regret is not having it done sooner! I am so happy with the results, the procedure has changed my life for the better. I am smiling more in photos, and my overall self-esteem has improved dramatically. The atmosphere of the office itself is absolutely serene. All of the staff are incredibly kind and accommodating. Dr. Miller was thorough and performed the procedure as quickly and comfortably as possible. The nursing staff in the OR with me were fantastic, and really made me feel at ease. My recovery and was quick and seamless, and all of the staff made sure I knew exactly what to expect. My follow-up appointment was informative and well organized. I am so happy with my results that I plan to continue to see Dr. Miller a few times a year to re-up my fillers. Choosing Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation was one of the best choices I have made for myself!
Liposuction is a semi-invasive surgical technique, created to eliminate excess fatty tissue and sculpt the target area. The custom-tailored technique is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed today and can bring effective results to almost any area of the body.
Almost anyone in good health who wants to eliminate isolated, stubborn fatty tissue, may make a good candidate for liposuction. Potential patients should understand the intended liposuction procedure and the healing process requirements, and they should have realistic expectations for their results.
Dr. Leonard Miller, Dr. Sean Doherty, Dr. Akshay Sanan, or Dr. Vickram Tandon will place several small incisions along the treatment area for cannula placement. While these incisions do leave small scars, they are well-concealed within the natural creases of the skin. Over time, the scarring can also be expected to fade.
Depending on the individual patient and the extent of correction, the liposuction recovery will take one to two weeks. Tenderness, bruising, and swelling can initially be expected. Most liposuction patients are feeling good enough to return to work or other normal activities in a week or less.
Gynecomastia is a common condition affecting men, causing the enlargement of male chest tissue. This can lead to feelings of self-consciousness and a desire for treatment.
When carried out by a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Miller or Dr. Doherty, liposuction is deemed to be exceptionally safe. However, there is always a small chance for complications. Although rare, these may include unexpected scarring, bleeding, infection, nerve damage, or fat embolism. During your consultation for liposuction at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation, the doctor will discuss all side effects and potential complications in detail.
After undergoing liposuction, many patients experience some degree of discomfort and swelling. Your surgeon will likely prescribe pain medication to ensure a comfortable recovery. Wearing an elastic compression garment can help reduce swelling and support the skin as it adjusts to its new contour. Patients should also avoid strenuous activities during the initial recovery phase to minimize blood loss and promote a faster recovery time.
Skin elasticity is crucial when considering this fat reduction treatment. If the skin lacks elasticity, it might not conform well to the new contour of the body after fat removal, potentially resulting in sagging or unevenness. During the consultation, the surgeon will assess the quality of your skin to determine how it might react after liposuction. Achieving optimal results may sometimes require additional treatments or procedures to address the skin after liposuction. Often, we use modern technology like Renuvion to help tighten the skin. Renuvion is a minimally invasive adjunct that we can perform at the same time. It uses helium plasma and RF energy to stimulate the skin to tighten.
You can generally expect to resume light exercise about two weeks after liposuction, but this can vary based on individual healing and the extent of the procedure. For more intense workouts, it’s advisable to wait at least 4-6 weeks. Always consult your surgeon for personalized advice. The arm lipo recovery period may differ slightly, as the arms are a common target area for liposuction and may require special care.
Liposuction, utilizing advanced techniques, specifically targets localized fat pockets in areas like the abdominal skin, offering many benefits like contoured and refined body shape. Arm lipo benefits are similar, as the procedure effectively addresses stubborn fat in the upper arms, contributing to a more sculpted appearance. Unlike broader weight-loss procedures like bariatric surgery, liposuction doesn’t significantly reduce overall body weight. Instead, it’s more about sculpting and refining the body’s appearance to align with body contouring goals. It’s important to note that while liposuction offers long-lasting results in treated areas, maintaining those results requires a stable and ideal weight. Therefore, while it can be a great complement to achieving cosmetic goals, liposuction should be combined with a healthy lifestyle and should not be seen as a replacement for a comprehensive weight-loss strategy.
