Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction offers a range of benefits, including targeted fat removal, improved body contours, and enhanced self-confidence. It can effectively sculpt areas resistant to diet and exercise, such as love handles, thighs, and abdomen. Additionally, liposuction often results in quicker recovery times compared to more invasive procedures, with minimal scarring and long-lasting results.

Who Is a Candidate for Liposuction?

Ideal candidates for liposuction are individuals with localized fat deposits that are resistant to traditional weight loss methods. They should be in good overall health, with stable body weight and realistic expectations. Candidates should understand that liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss and should be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle post-procedure. Consulting with a qualified plastic surgeon is essential to determine candidacy and discuss personalized treatment plans.

Where Can Liposuction Be Performed?

Liposuction is a highly versatile procedure that can be used on a number of different areas to contour your body. Liposuction can help you eliminate excess fat from a range of areas, including the following:

  • The neck, chin, and jawline
  • Chest
  • Back 
  • Bra roll
  • Underarm area
  • Abdominal area 
  • Flanks
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Buttocks

At Studio Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jindal will examine you after clearly understanding your goals. From there, he will design a surgical plan to meet your needs, working with you to select the right areas for treatment.

Types of Liposuction

Here at Studio Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jindal provides the most advanced, customized liposuction techniques for our patients, each one able to create results to achieve your personal cosmetic goals. During your consultation, he’ll explain each type of liposuction available to you and help you choose the procedure that will create your ideal results. No matter which approach, Dr. Jindal always performs SAFE liposuction in Toronto.  This stands for Separation of the fat, Aspiration, and Fat Equalization.  This technique allows Dr. Jindal to achieve desirable results with smooth contours.

Power-Assisted Liposuction

Power-assisted liposuction uses rapid vibration to loosen unwanted fat cells in the treatment area, resulting in enhanced results and a smoother contour. This procedure can be performed with very small incisions that only require a single suture to close.

VASER Liposuction

VASER is “vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance.” This liposuction technique utilizes ultrasound energy to break the bonds between fat cells in the treatment area to achieve a more gentle yet effective removal of unwanted fatty tissue.  This results in a smoother overall contour.

Renuvion Liposuction

Renuvion liposuction combines minimally invasive liposuction techniques with advanced technology that utilizes helium plasma and radiofrequency energy. This results in effective skin tightening along with liposuction fat removal.

Your Customized Treatment Plan at Studio Plastic Surgery

Studio Plastic Surgery is home to a wide range of both surgical and non-surgical body contouring techniques. This robust treatment selection enables us to potentially combine complementary procedures and create truly comprehensive results that will leave you both looking and feeling your absolute best.

During your consultation, Dr. Jindal will help you explore a number of treatment options that can be performed alongside liposuction in Toronto. A Brazilian butt lift, for example, can achieve more rounded buttocks, while a body lift or thigh lift removes excess skin and achieves a more dramatic contour.

Cost of Liposuction in Toronto

At Studio Plastic Surgery, patients have various options for liposuction procedures, each tailored to their specific needs and goals. Traditional liposuction, with a price range from $6,500 to $11,000, effectively removes excess fat deposits from targeted areas of the body. For those seeking a more advanced approach, Vaser Ultrasonic Liposuction and Renuvion Liposuction are available options. Vaser Ultrasonic Liposuction, starting at $2,500, utilizes ultrasound technology to liquefy fat cells before removal, allowing for smoother results and potentially faster recovery. Similarly, Renuvion Liposuction, also starting at $2,500, combines radiofrequency energy with helium plasma to tighten skin and enhance contouring in addition to fat removal. These prices encompass the surgeon's fee, facility charges, anesthesia, pre-operative consultations, post-operative care, and any necessary follow-up appointments.

Recovery After Liposuction in Toronto

Because liposuction is performed using very small incisions, the recovery period after your procedure is generally quite brief. You’ll experience some discomfort and swelling after the treatment is over, which is expected. Compression garments will be provided to you, which will help minimize swelling and improve results. We will schedule follow-up appointments so Dr. Jindal can ensure that you’re healing well and are comfortable. 

Most patients can return to normal activities after about three to four weeks, with final results in approximately six weeks.

Liposuction FAQ

Are the results of liposuction permanent?

What are the risks and complications associated with liposuction?

What type of anesthesia is used for liposuction?

Will liposuction remove cellulite?

Can liposuction be used for weight loss?

Are the results of liposuction permanent?

The fat cells removed during liposuction are permanently eliminated from the body. However, it's important to maintain a stable weight through healthy diet and exercise habits to prevent remaining fat cells from expanding and potentially compromising the results of the procedure.

What are the risks and complications associated with liposuction?

Like any surgical procedure, liposuction carries certain risks, including infection, bleeding, fluid accumulation, changes in sensation, contour irregularities, and complications related to anesthesia. Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon experienced in liposuction procedures can help minimize these risks.

What type of anesthesia is used for liposuction?

Liposuction can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation, intravenous (IV) sedation, or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure and the patient's preferences. Your surgeon and anesthesia provider will discuss the options with you prior to surgery.

Will liposuction remove cellulite?

Liposuction is not specifically designed to treat cellulite, which is caused by fibrous bands connecting the skin to underlying tissue, creating a dimpled appearance. While liposuction can improve body contours and reduce the appearance of fat bulges, it may not significantly improve cellulite. However, certain techniques such as laser-assisted liposuction or radiofrequency treatments may help improve the appearance of cellulite in some cases.

Can liposuction be used for weight loss?

Liposuction is not intended as a weight loss solution for individuals who are significantly overweight or obese. It is most effective for contouring and sculpting specific areas of the body that have localized fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise. Candidates for liposuction should be close to their ideal body weight and have realistic expectations about the results.
