Liposuction is an invasive procedure used to improve body contour by removing areas of fat that've been resistant to diet and exercise. It's important to note that lipo is not intended to significantly reduce weight, cellulite, or sagging skin. Here's how it works: Thin tubes called cannulas are inserted into the body, dislodging fat deposits that are then suctioned out. Lipo can be done on various body parts including the abdomen and waist, hips and thighs, and the cheeks, chin, and neck.

Five years ago, while going through a divorce, I decided to get my floppy, empty, nursed for many years breasts "fixed". I never wanted to look too large. I went with 250ish cc .. But since it was over the muscle, they just were too fat looking for me. So...here I was five years later finally... READ MORE

I had liposuction on my chin, abdomen, flanks and upper and lower back with Dr. Moises Salama on Thursday. I decided to finally go through with having this procedure done in spite of all my fears because I truly wanted the stomach and back that I had as a younger woman (pre-kids). Dr. Salama was...

Dr. Richards and staff were beyond fabulous in treating my concerns regarding my stomach/muffin-top/mommy pooch concerns. I also had my inner things done to help reduce chaffing concerns. I'll break down my experience: 1. Surgery was EASY. No pain, I slept through the whole thing,... READ MORE

Had liposuction on the waist with Dr. Carlos Castaneda on 4/14. Didn't have too much fat but isolated parts on the hips. Can't tell final results but his previous photos look amazing. So far just bruising amd swelling. Only used one stitch to get to both sides which I thought was impressive.... READ MORE

I come a family of women with petite frames and abdominal heaviness. Though I am only 5'3" and weigh 125 lb, my waist circumference is 37.5 inches and very unattractive. I will be having liposuction of the abdomen/waist area, flanks, and mid-back (bra area). I will also be having a rhinoplasty... READ MORE

Well after five plastic surgeon consults.. I made the choice to go to my facial dr locally. Dr. Pickart was honest with my expected results. He knew the sagging skin I have now needed a full TT and Lipo would only make that worse. But I can't take leave from work for a full TT, and I feel that... READ MORE

Surgery went well this morning. Kind of sore, def will post after pictures .... Here is a brief review. Pros: Dr K is very patient, friendly and kind. He answered all my questions at my consult and took time to share his thoughts (which saved me money) Cons: The receptionist called me the... READ MORE

I've wanted fuller breast and a smaller waist for quite some time. So I chose to undergo a BA and lipo of the abdomen, midsection and flanks. I'm 4 days post op and I'm unsure if I made a good decision with getting the lipo. I dislike how I feel and look and it's becoming difficult to see the... READ MORE

For years now I've wanted to have something done about my stomach area. After having 3 children I wasn't happy with the appearance I was left with. I am 32 years old and wanted to gift myself a new start. I find Dr Bensimon here in PDX and I couldn't be happier with my results so far. He is... READ MORE

Once been self conscience for years. Dr. Oppenheimer was brought into my initial consultation, which convinced me to use him I'm a week out and so far I'm very pleased. I really had no expectations going in, as I'd never had a cosmetic procedure. I was shocked when I removed the padding on day... READ MORE

I'm hoping for an hourglass figure with minimal postoperative pain. Not looking forward to wearing compression garments during the summer heat! My tummy tuck with the same doctor went well. Scar still healing after 6 months. My PS and his staff are amazingly helpful. Remember to ask lots of... READ MORE

I traveled to Dr. Yoho's Pasadena office requesting liposuction of the waist, thighs, rear, etc. The waist was particularly important to me as my 1st boyfriend whom I'd been with for 9 years had always told me I'd had a "tree trunk" shaped waist. Though we'd parted ways a year prior to that,... READ MORE

I was overweight as a child. For the past 14 years of my life I've been dedicated to maintaining my weight, now 134. Even at 127 pounds, eating super super clean, I can never get rid of my belly.
