Lipoplasty, also known as liposuction, is a surgical procedure that removes unwanted body fat from various areas of the body to enhance your shape and contours. At Leva Medical, a cosmetic surgery and aesthetics practice, our team performs lipoplasty using the Renuvion® surgical laser, an advanced tool that liquifies the fat under your skin and tightens your skin by stimulating collagen production in your skin and other tissues.

During your lipoplasty consultation, our cosmetic surgery expert will examine you thoroughly to determine if you're a suitable candidate for the procedure. Typically, if you're at or close to your ideal body weight, in good overall health, and have troublesome areas of fat that cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise, you may be a candidate for liposuction.

During the procedure, your provider will customize your lipoplasty surgical plan based on the location and amount of fat you want to be removed. They will perform the procedure under sedation or general anesthesia and use the Renuvion surgical laser to liquefy the fat and suction it out using a suctioning tool.

After the procedure, you can expect some pain and swelling, which can be managed with compression garments and medication. You will need to take a few days off from work and minimize strenuous activity for a few weeks to ensure proper healing.

While you may notice some improvements in your shape soon after the procedure, it may take several months to see the final results. If you're interested in lipoplasty, schedule a consultation at Leva Medical by calling our office or booking an appointment online today.
