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.

I've always been in good shape and taken good care of myself, but I've always had a chubby face and with time it's become uneven and started to sag. It's present no matter how fit I am. After consulting with Dr. Brecht, I decided to take the plunge and do my upper and lower abs as well. They... READ MORE

Did my initial consultation with Dr. Campbell and he answers all questions. I have never had major surgery before so I am very nervous and anxious at the same time. I am having lipo of my arms, inner thighs, back and abdomen. I will be staying for 7 days at the new Premium Care Recovery House.... READ MORE

DAY ONE For my entire adult life, I’ve had a not-bad figure, but I’ve always had a very square torso and a bit of a gut, no waist to speak of. After three years with a personal trainer, pretty good eating habits and no real results in shape-change, I decided kind of impulsively to get lip... READ MORE

I am fit everywhere but my belly. No trainer, diet or pills can help me. I'm 5 feet with a short torso. The belly has got to go. I went to another doctor a few years back that was so obnoxious and rude at my consultation I never got the procedure. I read about Dr. Bond. The positive reviews got... READ MORE

I'm not sure and having mixed feelings about results, I won't go in depth about my feels yet because its only been 1 wk post op. The pain: day of surgery, I woke up feeling extremly cold but good. The pain felt like I lifted weights in the gym for a month straight but it's been manageble for... READ MORE

Hi my name is Vicky I would like to share my experience abroad; I decided go to Santa Cruz, Bolivia(South America) to have body reshaping.All my life I hated my body because I had those horrible fat deposits around my waist and in my lower tummy. I tried everything, diet, exercise, some special... READ MORE

Hi everyone! I have been stalking this page for years I have seen about 6 top doctors on this site and I finally decided to go with Dr. Zubowic. He was the 3rd PS I saw and his manner stuck with me. The office staff is friendly and Dr. Z answered all my questions and told me my exemptions. My... READ MORE

I've been trolling this site for about 2 years now and I've finally decided to make the leap to get Lipo. I'm scheduled for Monday to get my full abdomen & upper back done. I've been doing a ton of research and putting all my faith in to Dr. Davoudi. My life is so consumed with work that I... READ MORE

I wanted to get lipo to mainly get rid of my love handles. Eventually I think I will get a tummy tuck and some fake hoohaas. I was worried about down time so I went with tumescent lipo just for the shaping. Personally I don't care right now about my stretch marks because my husband and myself... READ MORE

Dr Ortega is a awesome. When I arrived to spectrum I was so nervous. soon as I met & consulted with Ortega I felt relieved I expressed to him what I wanted & he made every expectation for surgery a reality. I'm very greatful.. My next day follow up after surgery was unorganized wish I could've... READ MORE

Hello All, I am scheduled for surgery on 4/21/16. I have seen some very nice results on Realself and I am very hopeful that I get the results I have long awaited for. I will add photos a few days before my surgery. I look forward to sharing this part of my journey with you and following yours as... READ MORE

I have finally decided this year my shadow will show sexy curves, lol. On May 12, I have scheduled a confidence booster with Dr. Molina. So far, I am stuck on finding a recovery house. Serenity, Kindness, and Maria's don't have availability for May 11-25. Does anyone have any suggestions? I... READ MORE

I am posting a before and after lipo pic of my thighs. I had aqua assisted lipo on my inner and outer thighs. It's been exactly 4 weeks since the procedure and I already see a huge difference! Since final results take several months I am really hoping to see further improvement. For the first... READ MORE

For many years I did all I could do to get rid on my belly and inner thigh fat with very little results. I was introduced to Dr. Paul C Dillon and his Nurse Meko and shortly after I decided to proceed with Lipo. My Procedure was May 6 and I have wonderful results. I'm glad I decided to go... READ MORE

I'm a 36-28-35, which is a royal pain for picking out well-fitting clothing. I'm a relatively healthy person who exercises on the regular, but I've got a stubborn pocket of fat on my stomach and love handles. I'm interested in lipo to help me trim around my waist enough to comfortably fit my... READ MORE

I did my consultation and everything went well I am set to go in for my procedure in two weeks. I don't see very many reviews or photographs of Dr.Dillion work but I'm still researching. The office staff was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions in person via text and also via email.... READ MORE

I'm a woman, 56, and I had gained and lost weight, and had a lot of fat on my neck, which jiggled and was beginning to wrinkle--it aged me, I hated it, and it ruined my looks. Dr. Bruneteau did such a great job, I look pretty again, and feel and look younger and lighter--getting rid if that... READ MORE

So I find it difficult to see reviews where people post right after the procedure. So I decided to do it. I'm 20 years old, have been overweight from the age of 6. When I was 18 I lost over 120lb on my own, and my weight stabilized over the past two years but I clearly Wasn't happen at all, and... READ MORE

I went to Dr.Krochmal when I was researching liposuction, as I had reached a solid weight I liked and maintained for a couple years. But I was not able to loose the lower "pooch" on my abdomen, or on my flanks. He was running a special at the time, as he is newer to Dr.Epsteins practice. I... READ MORE
