Welcome to the Liposuction Specialist website. This site is meant to provide useful information to those who are interested in liposuction or liposculpture procedures. Liposuction is a very versatile procedure. Because it targets localized fat deposits, it is often used on such areas as the face, neck, stomach, back, arms, hips, buttocks, and thighs in order to slim and contour certain problem areas that do not respond to regular diet and exercise programs. You may have many questions about this type of procedure – questions like “Am I a candidate?”, “What should I expect during the procedure?”, “How long is the recovery?”, among others. Feel free to look through this site in order to find the answers you are looking for, view our many real patient before and after photos, or fill out our online contact form to request more information.
Frequently Asked Liposuction Questions
Q. What is the Difference Between Liposuction & Tummy Tuck?
Many people think that Liposuction is not only an instant cure for ridding fat and bulge, but can also remove stretch marks and cellulite. This may not always be the case. While liposuction is a great procedure for localized areas, slimming thighs, contouring the waist, etc. it only targets the fat underneath the skin. If extra skin or stretch marks is the issue, liposuction will not affect these problems. Abdominoplasty, or a "tummy tuck," is the best procedure for removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal wall. Depending on the extent of fat/skin that needs to be reduced, Dr. Kapoor may recommend liposuction, tummy tuck, or a combination of both.
