There is a reason liposuction still is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries among both men and women: it can produce incredible results. Contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not a weight loss surgery; it is a delicate and precise body contouring method that allows surgeons to sculpt a sexy, slender figure by removing excess fat deposits from anywhere in the body.
Why Choose Liposuction
Liposuction is an FDA-approved procedure used to strategically contour and reshape specific parts of your body. It is not a replacement for healthy eating and exercise, but it can address stubborn areas of localized fat that can be hard to get rid of with traditional approaches.
The beauty of liposuction is that it can be used to sculpt any area of your body, including the upper arms, belly, hips, back, neck, cheeks, and even your ankles. It is performed with a thin, blunt-ended tube called a cannula, which is inserted through little incisions to suction out fat from your body.
At Dr. Patty Miami, our surgeons work with a wide variety of cutting-edge liposuction techniques, including minimally invasive liposuction under local anesthesia, which allows you to remain awake during your procedure, though you will feel no pain.

What Parts Of The Body Can Be Treated With Liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the most transformative and empowering body contouring procedures because it can remove fat from nearly every area of the body.
These are some of the most commonly requested areas we treat with liposuction at Dr. Patty Miami:
- Chin and neck
- Underarms/bra rolls
- Upper arms
- [Male chest/man breasts]
- Hips/love handles
- Inner/outer thighs
Another benefit of liposuction is that it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures, such as a [Brazilian Butt Lift], [Fat Transfer], [Breast Augmentation, [Facelift], or [Tummy Tuck] to enhance your results.
Am I A Candidate For Liposuction?
The best candidates for liposuction are adults who are close or at their ideal body weight but who have stubborn fat deposits they want to get rid of. To be considered a candidate for this procedure, the skin in the area of liposuction should have some degree of muscle tone and be sufficiently firm and elastic. This will set the stage for the highest levels of safety and the best possible results.
On the other hand, you may not be an ideal candidate for liposuction if you:
- Have an untreated medical condition or blood disorder
- Are obese
- Have poor skin elasticity
It’s important to remember that liposuction is a tool for contouring your body, not a substitute for weight loss. Why? For starters, any person with a high BMI is at higher risk of complications during surgery than a person with a BMI in the normal range. Also, there’s only a limited amount of fat that can be safely removed during one procedure. And even though liposuction permanently removes fat deposits, without changes in diet and exercise, your body will continue to store fat cells, albeit in a different area than where liposuction was done.
Real Clients, Real Testimonials
As Seen On
The Liposuction Consultation
At Dr. Patty Miami, we believe that the best results are achieved when decisions are made together — surgeon and patient on the same page. During your complimentary consultation at our high-end medical and cosmetic center, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon will meet with you privately to talk about what you’d wish to achieve with liposuction. This appointment is the perfect time to discuss exactly what bothers you and what you’d like to enhance. For example, you may want to mention:
- Areas where you’d like your clothes to fit better
- Any places you’d wish to improve by removing surrounding fat
- Bulges or fat deposits that make you self-conscious, like those annoying rolls that push out from underneath and above your bra
Our goal in performing liposuction is to contour a toned, attractive, and proportionate figure that takes you one step closer to your ideal self. To accomplish this, your Dr. Patty Miami surgeon will assess your unique body as a whole to identify exactly where and how much fat should be removed to achieve the results you want.
If you decide to move forward with the procedure, you will receive a personalized surgical plan with instructions on how to prepare before your surgery and what to expect from the recovery process.
How Is Liposuction Performed?
Modern liposuction is nowhere nearly as painful, invasive, or time-consuming as it used to be. At Dr. Patty Miami, this procedure is performed at our upscale medical and cosmetic boutique where you can expect the same level of safety and world-class technology as any hospital, but in a luxurious setting where you can enjoy greater privacy, more personalized attention, and the highest standards of medical care.
Liposuction can be performed under general anesthesia or IV (intravenous) conscious sedation and takes about 1-2 hours to complete. The cosmetic surgeons at Dr. Patty Miami have experience with all major types of liposuction, including fluid injection (tumescent, syringe) and ultrasonic, power-assisted, and standard techniques.
Any of these methods can produce dramatic results in the right hands. You and your surgeon will decide on the type of procedure that will be decided before the day of surgery based upon the areas being treated, your preference, and what’s determined safest for your particular case.
During the procedure, a numbing fluid is injected into the area to block pain and prevent blood loss. Then, a cannula is inserted through a small incision near the target area, typically within the folds of the skin to conceal any scars. A vacuum then suctions out the fat through the cannula, preserving the surrounding nerves, muscles, and tissue. The fat is either discarded or purified and saved for use during a [fat transfer] procedure.
Recovering From Liposuction
Thanks to technological advances and Dr. Patty Miami’s meticulous approach, you can expect significantly less swelling, bruising, and discomfort than with previous methods.
Immediately following your procedure, you will be able to rest and recover at our tranquil recovery suite until you are ready to go home. Your incisions will be dressed with small bandages and the treated area will be wrapped in compression garments to minimize swelling. You may experience some moderate pain and discomfort the first 48 hours after your liposuction, which can be addressed with pain medications prescribed by your surgeon.
A week after your procedure you may feel well enough to go back to work and light activities. To ensure a speedy recovery, you’ll need to continue wearing your compression garment around the clock and take short leisurely walks throughout the day to help reduce swelling.
After liposuction, natural scar tissue can build up in the treated areas. These scars form internally within the small openings left by the cannula and may create lumpy, uneven areas along the surface of your skin.
[Post-operative massages] are recommended to reduce these surface irregularities. A professional post-op massage can also help minimize bruising and ease discomfort. Your Dr. Patty Miami surgeon will recommend getting massages as soon as a few days after your procedures or within the first couple of weeks.
A month and beyond following your procedure, all the swelling will have subsided, and you’ll be able to fully appreciate your beautifully contoured results. You may return to your usual activities, including strenuous exercise.
