Liposuction, also known as Liposculpture, is a procedure designed to remove localized deposits of fat and create an improved body contour and shape.
This very popular procedure permanently removes isolated areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Commonly treated areas include hips, thighs, abdomen, knees, ankles, and neck, especially under the chin. Recent advances in surgical technique have also made liposuction an option for minor breast reduction in both women and men. Liposculpture selectively removes fat from those areas where reduction is desired. However, liposculpture is not a cure for obesity. For safety reasons, Dr. Bern maintains strict limits on how large a volume can be removed during an operation. A frequent area of discussion at the time is consultation is the extent that liposuction can change body contour. We maintain an extensive library of pre- and post- operative photographs for our patients to review and discuss.
Liposuction body contouring is performed by Dr. Samuel Bern.
