Dr. Yi recommends liposuction as a cosmetic enhancement, not as a weight loss method. It also does not effectively resolve cellulite (the orange-peel look to the skin) or loose, saggy skin. During your private consultation, Dr. Yi will help you determine whether liposuction can effectively achieve your desired improvements and customize a treatment plan for your individual needs.

The Liposuction Process

Dr. Yi performs liposuction surgery while the patient is either under local or general anesthesia. After administering the anesthetic, Dr. Yi saturates the treatment areas with a tumescent solution that minimizes discomfort and bleeding. He then breaks up the excess fat and suctions it out with a small, hollow tube, called a micro-cannula. Dr. Yi uses this small cannula to achieve a remarkably smooth skin contour.

The results of your procedure will be immediately noticeable, although you will likely have some swelling and bruising for a few weeks. You can maintain your improvements by following a sensible diet and exercising regularly.
