A healthy lifestyle isn’t always enough to get rid of stubborn areas of fat. That’s one of the reasons liposuction at our Boynton Beach, FL, practice is among the most popular procedures for our patients from West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Wellington, Boca Raton, and throughout South Florida. Liposuction can pick up where diet and exercise fall short, giving you smooth, proportional body contours.

How Is Liposuction Performed?

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Rosenthal uses power-assisted liposuction (PAL), a gentler approach that requires less downtime than traditional liposuction techniques. Traditional liposuction involves the surgeon vigorously breaking up fatty tissue by manually thrusting a thin metal tube, called a cannula, back and forth as it suctions fat from the body. This results in significant trauma to soft tissue, causing bruising and swelling. During power-assisted liposuction, the cannula’s rapid vibrations loosen fat and minimize the side effects that occur during manual liposuction.

Using the PAL technique, our surgeon can remove more fat in less time, which is especially important when treating larger areas. He can also target treatment areas with more precision than traditional liposuction. And, unlike liposuction techniques that rely on heat energy to melt fat, there is no risk of burns occurring during the procedure.

We also offer a nonsurgical liposuction alternative called Physiq that both reduces fat and builds muscle if you have minimal excess fat.

What Areas Can Liposuction Treat?

Many people have certain trouble spots where fat tends to accumulate, such as the hips, the upper thighs, and below the chin. Liposuction is a versatile treatment that can remove fat from virtually anywhere on the body.

The most popular areas for liposuction include:

Buttocks: Despite the trend of buttock augmentation with Brazilian butt lift surgery, patients often want excess fat removed from the buttocks or just below the buttocks (“banana rolls”).

Love handles”: Bulges on the waist and flanks are especially frustrating for men and women in otherwise good physical shape. Liposuction slims this area for a more fit appearance.

Upper arms: If your skin has good elasticity, removing fat from the upper arms can create a more toned appearance.

Abdomen: The upper and lower abdomen are treated as separate areas, with the “muffin top” a popular liposuction target.

Hips: This area is a common concern among women who want shapely hips as part of a balanced, feminine figure.

Back: Upper back “bra fat” is another area women often want to be treated. Removing fat from the lower back is popular with both men and women.

Thighs: We can remove the excess fat on the outer thighs responsible for “saddlebags” and slim the inner thighs.

Face: We perform neck liposuction for a double chin and cheek liposuction to enhance facial contours.

Chest: Liposuction can sculpt a more masculine chest for men who are self-conscious about having enlarged breasts, a condition called gynecomastia. In some cases, Dr. Rosenthal combines liposuction with gynecomastia surgery to remove breast tissue.

What Is High-Definition Liposuction?

Some men and women are good candidates for a technique called high-definition liposuction, which goes beyond simply removing excess fat. High-def liposuction—sometimes called liposculpture—is an option if you’re physically fit and want a sculpted abdominal area. Our surgeon creates the ideal “six-pack” by selectively removing fat in a way that highlights muscle. It’s important that your abdominal skin is tight and will “shrink to fit” the new contours.

How Much Does Liposuction Cost in Boynton Beach?

The cost of liposuction at our practice depends on several factors, including the treatment area or areas and the extent of the procedure needed to produce the desired results. In general, liposuction procedures take about 2 to 3 hours. We work with various companies that specialize in financing cosmetic surgery, including CareCredit®, PatientFi®, and Yes Doctor.

 What Happens During Liposuction Recovery?

The recovery process varies by person, treatment area, and other factors. Even though recovery after power-assisted liposuction is shorter than with other types of liposuction, you should still plan to take a few days off from work if you have a non-strenuous job. More physically demanding jobs will require more time off.

It’s important to closely follow our surgeon’s recovery instructions regarding limits on activities, how to care for your incisions, and what medications to avoid. Wearing a compression garment for a few weeks helps minimize swelling and enhances your results. As the swelling and bruising dissipate, you’ll start to see the results of your procedure.
