Abdominal Liposuction – Massachusetts

Abdominal Liposuction

Abdominal Liposuction (often combined with Back Liposuction) is the removal of excess fat tissue overlying the abdominal muscles that not only creates a thinner appearance, but when combined with with exercise, can show off the abdominal muscles. The incisions are very small and the recovery period is short.

Liposuction—common questions and answers

(Answers by Dr. Hamori)

Does liposuction work for everyone?

Yes, but some people are better candidates than others for the procedure. The best candidates are fairly thin with a specific area or two of fat excess — for instance, in the hip or “saddlebag” area. It also works very well for “love handles” in men.

Does liposuction require general anesthesia?

No, I prefer to have a patient under “twilight” sedation so that you are not aware of your surroundings during the liposuction, yet you are able to go home later that same day.

Does liposuction hurt?

Not much. Prior to the procedure, I apply a gentle injection of a weak anesthetic solution to the local area to be treated. The technique I use allows for the removal of purified fat without blood—this results in minimal bruising and discomfort after the procedure.

Does the fat return after liposuctioning?

Yes. If you gain weight, the fat will return to other areas of your body. The best way to approach liposuction is to think of it as a “jump start” to weight loss. My happiest patients have lost 10 to 20 pounds with diet and exercise after liposuction. They are encouraged and motivated by the way muscle definition is enhanced after liposuction.

What happens if you gain weight after liposuction?

The fat will deposit in areas not treated with liposuction first, then gradually go back to the treated areas. A healthy regimen of exercise and diet are required to maintain the results of liposuction.

Which procedure is best for removing excess abdominal fat—liposuction or a tummy tuck?

That is a tricky question. Men who have gained then lost abdominal (potbelly) weight or women who have been pregnant may require an abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” to tighten the stretched-out abdominal muscles. Young women and men (usually under 30 years of age) may benefit from just abdominal liposuction to reduce girth. The skin of younger patients tends to contract well after liposuction.
