Age, genetics, and lifestyle choices can make it hard to get rid of fat in certain areas of the body, even if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and workout routine. Liposuction can help you achieve the body contour you desire by permanently removing fat cells, leaving you with the shapely silhouette you’ve been working for.

What is Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical fat removal procedure. Dr. Afzal performs in-office liposuction using local anesthesia. This technique allows patients to return home after their treatment, and they may even be able to go back to work the next day. Dr. Afzal was personally trained by Dr. Klein, a leader in liposuction techniques, and Dr. Burris, a world-class dermatological surgeon who has taught at the Mayo Clinic.

How does
Liposuction work

Once the local anesthesia is administered, a small incision is made in the treatment site. A thin tube called a cannula is then inserted, which is used to break up fat deposits and suction them out of the body. Dr. Afzal uses the Vibrasat® Pro, a power-assisted liposuction device that uses vibrations to break up the fat more easily. This method causes less trauma to the surrounding tissues, shortening recovery time, and reducing side effects like swelling and bruising.
