Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion, and ultimately enhancing your self-image.
Despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness.

These techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:
- Hips and buttocks
- Abdomen and waist
- Upper arms
- Inner knee
- Chest area
- Cheeks, chin and neck
- Calves and ankles
Procedural techniques: There are three common variations to the procedure:
- Standard lipoplasty or tumescent or super-wet liposuction technique requires an infusion of saline solution with adrenaline and anesthetic prior to removal of excess fat with small canulas.
- Ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty uses ultrasonic energy to liquefy fat. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction requires the use of tumescent solution prior to lipolysis, and standard liposuction to aspirate the liquefied fat.
- Laser-assisted lipoplasty, this laser technology produces a burst of energy as it enters the fatty tissue that liquefies the fat. Laser-assisted liposuction requires the use of tumescent solution prior to lipolysis, and standard liposuction to aspirate the liquefied fat.
Dr. Wesley G. Wilson prefers the tried and true technique of standard tumescent liposuction. The results are outstanding and at the current time risks and complications are less than with the newer techniques.
Post-operatively a compression garment is worn to allow the skin to be held in place and retract to a smooth correct position. Liposuction is used to compliment procedures such a tummy tucks, breast lift, and arm lifts.
Unwanted or excess fat that is suctioned from one area can be transferred to other body areas; most commonly for Lip Augmentation, facial frown lines, and for the Brazilian butt lift.
