Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgery in the United States. Referred to as Lipoplasty and Suction Lipectomy, liposuction sculpts the body by removing fat that has not responded to diet and exercise. Fat can be removed from different places all over the body including the abdomen, waist, hips, butt, thighs, knees, chin, cheeks, neck and upper arms.

Surgery Details About the Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction is performed by a vacuum-type instrument called a "canula.” The incision is small and the canula is inserted then moved around the area to suction fat and other fluids. Upon completion, the area is bandaged and pain medication is prescribed for any discomfort experienced during recuperation.

Your recuperation period may vary, but if you are healthy and maintain yourself well nourished, hydrated and rested, the recuperation period may be slower. You are required to visit Dr. Weinberg post-surgery, which will determine your progress and how quickly you can return to your normal, daily activities. Most individuals return to work within 10 days of liposuction.


The liposuction procedure has helped a great deal of patients. Dr. Weinberg uses state-of-the-art equipment to remove unsightly fat from all over the body. Take a look at how patients have changed after the procedure.
