Liposuction Plastic Surgery – Fayetteville, Arkansas

Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion, and ultimately, enhancing your self-image. Board certified plastic surgeon R. Douglas Vanderpool, MD offers liposuction, also called lipoplasty, to men in women in Fayetteville, Arkansas who wish to refine their bodies to better reflect the results of diet, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle.

Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:

  • Thighs
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Inner knee
  • Chest area
  • Chin and neck

In some cases, liposuction is performed alone, in other cases it is used with plastic surgery procedures such as breast reduction or a tummy tuck.

Dr. Vanderpool uses the SlimLipo™ dual laser to efficiently melt and liquefy fat, which is then gently removed from your body. In addition, the heating of dermal tissue has been shown to have skin tightening results, which result in a smoother contour to the treated area.

Is it right for me?

If you are bothered by excess fat deposits – located anywhere on your body – that don’t respond to diet or exercise, liposuction may be right for you. The best candidates for liposuction are at or near their ideal body weight, but have localized concentrations of fat that remain due to genetics or result from changes to the body such as those experienced during pregnancy and childbirth.

Ideal candidates for liposuction are:

  • Adults within 30% of their ideal weight who have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone
  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Non-smokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for body contouring

What it won’t do:

Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise. It is also not an effective treatment for cellulite, the dimpled skin that typically appears on the thighs, hips and buttocks, or loose saggy skin.

Be sure to ask questions:

It’s very important to ask your plastic surgeon questions about your liposuction procedure. It’s natural to feel some anxiety, whether it’s excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of preoperative stress. Don’t be shy about discussing these feelings with your plastic surgeon.
