Liposuction Procedures in Hyannis & Plymouth

Liposuction is best performed to remove local collections of fat. Liposuction is not a replacement for losing weight. The most common areas that Dr. Jones and Dr. Loffredo treat are the arms, axilla (armpit), hips, thighs, back, and abdomen. Our surgeons at Cape and Islands Plastic Surgery also perform liposuction of the neck and jowls quite frequently. During the consultation, they will focus and identify with the patient the areas that are most bothersome. The better the skin elasticity, the better a patient is a candidate for liposuction.

Everyone’s body is unique. When working with our patients. we often recommend a combination of multiple procedures/treatments to help our patients get the most dramatic results. For example, some patients combine Tummy Tucks (or abdominoplasties) with liposuction for a full body transformation. Other patients combine FaceTite with Morpheus8 to both remove fat and tighten the skin around the face and neck area. If you are interested in getting information about specific treatments that could help you achieve your body contouring goals, please fill out this survey. 

Liposuction & Abdominoplasty

Abdominal liposuction is sometimes combined with an abdominoplasty or “Tummy Tuck“.  While both of these procedures are used as body contouring treatments for the abdomen, they achieve different results. A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a surgical process where excess abdominal skin and fat are removed. It is frequently included in Mommy Makeovers to reshape the abdomen after pregnancy. By comparison, liposuction only removes fat from a specific area and doesn’t remove skin. Together these treatments are often combined to remove fat from around the abdomen and remove excess skin for more profound results. 

Minimally Invasive Liposuction with BodyTite & FaceTite

BodyTite is a minimally Invasive alternative to traditional liposuction. This minimally invasive procedure works using radiofrequency technology. The applicator is inserted beneath the skin and RF energy is used to heat up and destroy fat cells. This can be accomplished around the abdomen, waist, neck, or face. This procedure is done in-office under local anesthesia and has significantly less downtime and recovery time than traditional surgical liposuction. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Liposuction

A single liposuction treatment can remove up to 4000-5000cc of fat.

Every liposuction patient is unique, and results vary. Depending on the amount of fat that is removed, many patients will see their final results somewhere between 3 and 6 months of the procedure.

Unless a patient is having an additional procedure, like an abdominoplasty, liposuction patients can return home the same day. On average, the recovery process lasts 3 to 10 days. Our plastic surgeons recommend that patients request one to two weeks off of work or family responsibilities.

Most liposuction procedures are done under general anesthesia, therefore patients do not experience pain or discomfort during the procedure. After the procedure surgeons can help patients manage any discomfort.
