Liposuction has evolved into a blend of art and science that reshapes the body as well as improves skin quality. In this section you will find discussions of Liposculpture for Women and Men, Weekend Liposculpture, and Laser Assisted Liposculpture. Don’t forget to view before and after photos of some of our patients.

Total Body Liposuction

Used more for body reshaping than bulk reduction, the total body Liposuction approach permanently removes disproportionate pockets of fat to create a more balanced form. MetropolitanMD doctors use the tumescent technique, sculpting once fatty areas anywhere on the body with small cannulas thru tiny incisions. The procedure is commonly performed under either local or twilight anesthesia. This popular technique offers dramatic results with minimal downtime, allowing patients to return back to normal routines in 1-2 days.

Liposuction for Women

Modern liposuction techniques address both body sculpting and skin rejuvenation in order to improve body shape and appearance. Using principals of tumescent anesthesia, laser lipolysis (ie: Smartlipo), and fractional laser skin rejuvenation almost all body areas can be addressed.
Circumferential Torso – The abdomen, hips, waist and back can be reshaped and in most cases the skin appearance improved with a combination of Smartlipo and Fractional Laser Therapy.
Arms and Calves/Ankles- Both droopy arms and stove pipe appearance of calves can be improved by selectively reshaping fatty areas that distort our anatomic appearance.

Thighs- Thighs can be made shapelier either by reducing inner and outer distortions or by reducing the circumference of the thigh with a procedure called circumferential thigh liposculpture.
Face and Neck – Smartlipo is an excellent treatment for early jowling and double chins with recovery time usually around 2-3 days.

Weekend Liposuction

The Weekend Liposuction technique combines the traditional tumescent technique with the precision of micro-cannulas and laser-assisted Liposuction. Patients are encouraged to briskly walk four to eight miles a day starting the day after having this gentle but effective procedure. This enhances the body’s healing process and contouring ability for optimal results quickly.

Laser Assisted Liposuction

Dr. Rachel focuses on developing innovations to the laser assisted procedure, enhancing its safety and effectiveness and performed early clinical studies on the technique in US. Today, he is highly skilled at Laser Assisted Liposuction, which results in faster healing and more comfort during and after the procedure.

Liposuction for Men

More men are turning to Liposuction to achieve contoured and chiseled physiques. Today’s Liposuction techniques permanently remove exercise- and diet-resistant fat bulges, particularly burdensome to men around the “love handles,” male breasts, abdomen and neck. This outpatient procedure is the only way to rid patients of unwanted fat in body areas that are genetically programmed to resist weight loss. Most patients return to work and exercise in just days.
