Even after following a strict diet and exercise routine, it can be extremely difficult to eliminate excess fat around the abdomen, hips, thighs, and other areas. Dr. Ramon Robles offers liposuction at his Phoenix, AZ, practice to help patients achieve the look they desire. This cosmetic procedure, also known as lipoplasty, can be combined with other surgical procedures, such as a Brazilian butt lift to achieve an aesthetically pleasing body contour.
If you are pregnant, nursing, under the age of 18, or have a serious health condition, you may not be a good candidate for this procedure. Because liposuction is considered surgery, it is important that you are in good overall health before undergoing this procedure. In order to qualify for liposuction, Dr. Robles will also recommend that you do not smoke and be within 20 to 25 pounds of your ideal body weight. This procedure should not be viewed as a weight loss solution but rather the final phase in achieving a beautifully contoured silhouette.

Dr. Robles will meet with you during an initial consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. He will also review your medical history, cosmetic goals, and customize a treatment plan to meet your needs. He will explain in detail what to expect during the procedure and provide you with detailed postoperative instructions to follow so you can optimize your results.
Before surgery, Dr. Robles will administer anesthesia to make you as comfortable as possible. Depending on your cosmetic goals, liposuction can either be performed individually on the arms, thighs, back, hips, or abdomen, or be used in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure, such as an abdominoplasty or mommy makeover. It can also be used to transfer fat to your breasts or buttock to add volume.
At Robles Plastic Surgery, we perform this procedure with the tumescent technique and power-assisted liposuction (PAL) machinery:
The length of your procedure will depend on how many areas are receiving treatment. In most cases, it takes about one hour per treatment area. However, if your treatment is being performed in addition to another cosmetic procedure, it could take several hours. You may experience some mild soreness and bruising immediately after the procedure, but you will notice tighter skin and an improved shape within a matter of weeks.
