Seeing Ideal Results with a Liposuction Specialist in Minneapolis

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. George Landis treats multiple areas with liposuction, including:

  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Leg
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Stomach
  • Around the face

In general, patients who are nonsmokers may be ideal candidates for fat elimination surgery.  Good skin elasticity is also key to ensuring an aesthetic result. Patients experiencing loss of skin firmness due to age may require a different approach to minimizing both fat deposits and excess skin.

Unlike dieting, fat removal through liposuction is permanent because it eliminates fat cells from the body.  After your treatment, your body will be lean and firm in the treated area. Any remaining fat cells can expand if the patient re-gain significant weight, but the extraneous fat accumulation in the area is eliminated.

Your Custom Minneapolis Liposuction Treatment Plan

There are several options to consider for your individualized treatment plan, including other procedures, such as tummy tuck or breast augmentation, which could be performed simultaneously. Dr. Landis will work with you to determine a surgical plan that best suits your needs to create results that meet or exceed your expectations. For patients interested in mild or moderate surgical improvements, liposuction alone can provide ideal results.

Though surgery can vary greatly depending on your needs, less extensive treatment can be provided after administering local anesthetic with conscious sedation. The procedure may last as little as 45 minutes. However, if your fat elimination treatment plan is extensive, your appointment may continue for upwards of two hours, and general anesthesia is provided to create a comfortable experience.

Minneapolis Liposuction for Men and Women!

Women often seek aesthetic treatment, but men are now discovering why this procedure is popular among male cosmetic surgery patients. Male patients often choose fat removal to correct the appearance of love handles or excess fat accumulation around the hips. The stomach and chest are also popular treatment areas for men.

With his meticulous approach to care, Dr. Landis can help you feel confident taking off your shirt by the pool or while doing yard work. As an exceptionally effective procedure at treating gynecomastia or the appearance of male breasts, this treatment eliminates excess fatty tissue in this area, providing men with lean and sculpted chests. While this can be an embarrassing condition that develops due to weight gain and loss, aging, or genetics, liposuction can quickly resolve these issues with minimally invasive surgical procedures.

After a week or so following treatment, Dr. Landis will remove the sutures so that your body can continue the healing process. Scars will diminish over time and become barely noticeable. Patients love their results and find that any potential scarring does not deter them from seeking this treatment.

Fat Removal and Natural Fat Grafting – Body Sculpting & Augmentation

If body sculpting is a part of your treatment plan, Dr. Landis can purify extracted fat cells for reinjection to enhance curves and help you meet your body goals. Natural augmentation is sought-after by patients who want more than just fat removal but an enhanced figure overall. Fat grafting helps them avoid implants, requiring more extensive treatment and recovery, depending on the area.

Common sites of fat grafting or fat transfer are the breasts and buttocks. With these procedures, Dr. Landis can enhance breast volume and improve curves. Liposuction and fat grafting go hand-in-hand to provide you with a comprehensively rejuvenated physique; lean in targeted areas, and with volume added in others.

If you’re interested in eliminating unwanted fat as well as fat grafting, contact our Minneapolis plastic surgeon to learn more about what we can do to meet your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions about Liposuction in Minneapolis

As you recover from your procedure, you will experience swelling and some discomfort, which can be efficiently managed with medication. You will also wear a compression garment at this time to maintain the new contours of your body and help re-shape tissue to the improved body shape. As each day passes, you will feel more comfortable in your recovery.

The initial days after treatment require the most rest. If your surgery was extensive, you would likely need to have a loved one available to help run errands and provide you with necessary medication. You will need to limit your activity during the initial recovery period, but Dr. Landis will ask you to gradually increase your activity levels within 24 hours of surgery. Depending on the treatment area, Dr. Landis may advise you to be careful about stretching or leaning to avoid injuring the treatment site and affecting wound healing.

To begin your treatment, Dr. Landis will make one or more small incisions at targeted sites. Through these incisions, he will insert a thin tube called a cannula. In some cases, a tumescent solution may also be injected to treat the fat, making it easier to remove while acting as a numbing or pain-relieving agent. The cannula is used to efficiently suction out fat cells as Dr. Landis moves it gently back and forth across the treatment area to break up cells.

While liposuction may seem straightforward, it is an art that must be completed precisely to create smooth body contours. Dr. Landis is highly experienced in aesthetic fat removal and ensures that treatment sites look flawless after healing has been achieved.

Some patients are reluctant to complete some surgical procedures and look for other ways to eliminate fat deposits. As a result, this has led to an increased prevalence of hand-held fat freezing equipment or similar machines that claim to reduce fat with the topical application of heat or cooling.  While this is undoubtedly appealing to many, the results can leave patients unsure whether the treatment has worked effectively to contour problem areas. What’s more, these treatment methods require multiple visits and sessions, and outcomes aren’t always predictable.

While liposuction is indeed surgical, it is a minimally invasive treatment that produces almost immediately noticeable results. In addition, fat is permanently removed, and your appearance will only improve as the swelling recedes.

The best candidates for liposuction are individuals at or near their healthy body weight, with firm, elastic skin, and a commitment to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, someone who has localized fat deposits that are resistant to exercise and diet might also be an ideal candidate.
How long is the recovery period after liposuction?

The fat cells removed during liposuction do not regrow. However, those remaining can enlarge with weight gain. So, to maintain your new shape, it is important to follow a healthy, balanced diet and exercise regularly.

While liposuction improves the shape and contour of your body by removing fat, it might not significantly impact the appearance of cellulite. Some individuals might notice a slight change in skin texture, but it’s not a cure for cellulite.

Liposuction can be performed under various types of anesthesia, depending on the area’s size and number of locations being treated. We customize options for our patients, ranging from local anesthesia with or without sedation to general anesthesia, enhancing comfort and aligning with each individual’s personal and health care considerations.

The small incisions used for liposuction can lead to some very minimal scarring. However, we aim to minimize scar visibility by making incisions in body areas that are less noticeable or those typically covered by clothing. Scars will also naturally fade and improve in appearance over time.

It’s often recommended to be at or near your desired weight before undergoing liposuction for the best and most lasting enhancements. Significant weight loss after the procedure may alter your results.
