What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a procedure that’s designed to slim down and reshape certain areas of the body by extracting excess fat deposits. Patients walk away with improved contours and definition. Popular areas of treatment for the procedure include the thighs, hips, buttocks, midsection and waist, upper arms, back, inner knee, chest area, cheeks, chin, and neck. It is a quick and highly effective procedure that leaves patients looking better than they have in years. What’s more, the procedure’s results are incredibly natural, meaning that it is difficult for onlookers to tell that the patient has had work done.

    Who Is a Candidate for Liposuction?

    You may be a good candidate for liposuction in Charlotte if you:

    • Are within 30% of your ideal body weight
    • Are in good overall health
    • Have good skin elasticity (as the skin must shrink after the procedure)
    • Have stubborn deposits of excess fat in the abdomen, thighs, hips, breasts, back, buttocks, arms, calves, ankles, or neck

    What is The Cost of Liposuction in Charlotte, NC?

    Tumescent Liposuction

    What Is Recovery Like after Liposuction?

    We encourage patients to walk around as soon as possible after a liposuction procedure to improve circulation and promote healing. You will need to wear a compression garment on the treated body area to reduce swelling, improve circulation, and help ensure the skin attaches properly to your new slimmer body contours. After your liposuction, you may experience temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, and mild discomfort which can be easily controlled with medications. Most of our liposuction patients return to work within a week after the procedure.

    How Soon Will I See Results after Liposuction?

    You can expect to see results immediately after liposuction in Charlotte, NC. However, your results will continue to refine over four to six weeks following the procedure as your body heals and post-surgical swelling subsides completely. As performed by Dr. Joel Beck at Beck Aesthetic Surgery, state-of-the-art liposuction body contouring can remove pockets of localized fat to create a slimmer, more attractive, younger-looking silhouette. Contact us today and schedule a consultation with Dr. Beck for arguably the best liposuction in Charlotte, NC.

    Areas that can be slimmed with liposuction

    Liposuction can be used on many body areas, from larger areas such as the tummy and thighs to smaller and harder-to-reach areas such as below the chin. Other areas that can be successfully slimmed with a customized liposuction procedure include:

    Liposuction For Breast Reduction

    Liposuction can be used to help in breast reduction to reduce the size of breasts to allow the breasts to feel lighter and more comfortable. People with youthful, elastic skin are great candidates for breast liposuction, as their skin will retract after liposuction and the breasts tend to lift naturally due to reduced weight.

    Liposuction For Torso And Tummy

    One of the most common areas where liposuction is used is the torso, including the back and bra line, love handles, and abdomen. These areas can be sculpted with liposuction for a trimmer, slimmer, shapelier silhouette. An hourglass figure can be achieved with liposuction performed on the abdomen and love handles for a more attractive, sculpted figure, free from the bulges of excess fat.

    Liposuction For Thighs And Arms

    Stubborn fat on the thighs and arms can be some of the hardest to target with diet and exercise. Loose, saggy thighs or droopy upper arms can be slimmed with lipo, jumpstarting a diet and exercise program. Liposuction can remove much of the fat around the thighs and upper arms to create a shapelier, more appealing body contour. Elastic skin responds best to liposuction as the skin has the capacity to shrink back around the newly-slimmed area.

    Liposuction  For Buttocks

    An attractive butt is all about shape and lift – but achieving a shapely butt can be very difficult to achieve with diet and exercise alone. Lifted, rounder buttocks can be achieved with the help of a custom liposuction treatment. Liposuction will contour the buttocks and remove fat from areas of excess, such as a “banana roll.” For an even more dramatic lift, lipo can be combined with fat grafting, with the fat cells extracted, purified, and injected into the buttocks to create a more appealing derrière.

    Brazilian Butt Lift

    A Brazilian butt lift involves the combined use of liposuction and fat grafting to give your buttocks a beautifully lifted and rounded appearance. Fat cells are harvested from areas of excess, such as tummy, thighs, or love handles, and then strategically relocated to the buttocks. Many people with flat or small bottoms want to enhance the area with a custom Brazilian butt lift. Dr. Beck excels in this procedure and has the artistry and technique required to achieve a truly beautiful outcome. His understanding of the most appealing body proportions, along with his safe, advanced techniques are the keys to achieving long-lasting results and a more attractive figure.
