Tumescent liposuction is a body-sculpting procedure that injects a large volume of fluid with local anesthetic and adrenaline into the tissue. This process shrinks capillaries, which reduces bleeding, and hardens fat, making it easier to remove. It is the preferred method of nearly all plastic surgeons performing liposuction, as it also reduces recovery time. LEARN MORE ›

23, No Kids. Upper/lower abs, hips and sides

My procedure is in 4 days and time is switching between passing too fast and not passing fast enough. I don't think I've ever been this nervous in my life. I've been wanting to do this even before it was legal for me to do it. When I turned 18 I poked around only to find it was way out of my... READ MORE

Liposuction Abdominal, Waist, Hips, Thighs - Tampa, FL

So obviously the cool sculpting did not work for me. The thunder thighs remained and I really did not see a difference at all. The whole thing was very disappointing to me. The pain, tingling and numbness took at least 8 months to resolve. Next step, I did a lot of research and spoke to many... READ MORE

27 y/o - No Kids - Upper and Lower Abdomen Liposuction

Over the last 5+ years, I've lost 60 lbs (went from 200 lbs to 140 lbs), but NONE of the weight lost came from my midsection whatsoever.

I gained 40 lbs. in less than a year when I was taking antidepressants/SSRI's. Before this significant weight gain I worked out 5-6 days a week incorporating weights, and cardio/dancing.
