Even with diet and exercise, certain parts of your body may not slim down the way you would like. I provide liposuction to patients who want to target these stubborn fat deposits and get a more contoured figure.
In addition to the abdomen, back and waist, some of the most common areas patients want liposuctioned are the neck, thighs, and flanks. Reducing the appearance of love handles, bra rolls, and waist rolls can transform a person’s silhouette and help rejuvenate an aging appearance. (note: I never liposuction anyone’s face above the jawline.)

Traditional liposuction removes fat, but it can leave behind excess skin if the tissue is lax. Most patients need skin contraction in addition to fat removal to get the best results. For this reason, I offer two energy-assisted liposuction techniques:
In some cases, I use LAL and RFAL together. This helps remove and reshape fat and shrink the skin to its new contour.

In the initial consultation, patients get answers to their questions, learn what liposuction can reasonably achieve, and receive guidance in making their decision. Following evaluation and scheduling, patients usually have their procedure at Plastic Surgical Associates of Fort Collins. Our practice offers an AAAASF-accredited suite of operating rooms, ensuring privacy and care that follows the highest standards.
As part of liposuction:
Throughout the procedure, my aim is to contour the body in a way that is natural-looking, creates an attractive transition from one area to the next, and appears more toned.
After liposuction, patients generally wear compression garments for about six weeks. This helps skin and soft tissue shrink to the target size and shape.
Since liposuction is minimally invasive—small poke holes rather than significant incisions—patients have fewer restrictions following surgery. I advise them to avoid heavy physical activity for a while and to take at least two to four days away from office work. By the conclusion of their recovery, they can expect a slimmer, firmer body contour.
If diet and exercise aren’t improving your trouble spots, consider liposuction. Call PSA for an initial consultation at (970) 493-7445.
