» Minor Surgical » Small Area Liposuction

Fat pockets around your hips, thighs, knees and abdomen may not respond to diet and exercise, preventing you from achieving your optimal figure and the best fit for your clothes. Small area liposuction targets these unwanted fat deposits to give you a slimmer, more attractive shape.

Small area liposuction is normally performed after a larger procedure, such as regular liposuction or an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), or to remove a small accumulation of fat around the abdomen and hip.

How does it work?

Small area liposuction suctions away concentrated areas of fat cells. Because the body has a fixed number of fat cells, the results are permanent.

Dr. O’Grady will make a small incision then use a small tube, called a cannula, to reshape the area of the fat deposit.

How will I heal from small area liposuction?

The procedure is performed under local anesthetic to speed recovery times. In most cases, patients can return home the same day.
