Procedure & Results

Liposuction is an exceedingly common procedure for Dr. Kelly Sullivan and Dr. Emily Clarke-Pearson to perform. The reason is quite simple: it is a quick and effective method of eliminating fat that is difficult or impossible to lose by means of diet or exercise. Liposuction is performed through a small, inconspicuous incision. A sterile saline solution with adrenaline and anesthetic is injected to minimize bleeding and improve patient comfort and safety. Then a thin, hollow tube called a cannula is manipulated back and forth to loosen the excess fat. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.  These techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, waist, upper arms, neck, back, inner knee and chest area. Liposuction takes approximately one to four hours, depending on the complexity of the procedure and the number of areas addressed. Liposuction surgery is done on an outpatient basis with either IV sedation or general anesthesia.

Because safety is Dr. Kelly Sullivan and Dr. Emily Clarke-Pearson’s first concern, they always works with board-certified anesthesiologists to ensure that your surgery is as safe as possible. Following your surgery, you will be able to rest in the comfort of your own home. You should expect the following results from your liposuction: – Localized fat deposits that will not respond to regular diet and exercise – Disproportionate areas of the body – Remove unwanted, localized fat deposits & bulges – Improve your body contour – Change body proportion to enhance overall shape – Improve overall appearance and self-image
