Liposuction is the most common cosmetic procedure performed in the United States because it is minimally invasive with little downtime, relatively little risk, and almost imperceivable scars. This body contouring procedure can be an effective solution if you have localized fat deposits that you cannot eliminate with diet and exercise. At VPSI in Las Vegas, NV, we offer a range of liposuction options to help you remove unwanted fat and achieve your dream body.
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
You are a good candidate for liposuction if you have modest amounts of excess fat (localized fat stores that are hard to get with exercise) and good skin elasticity. If you have extra skin and a high BMI, you may not benefit from this procedure.
Liposuction is Great If You
- Are in good health overall
- Looking to remove modest amounts of excess fat
- Have a healthy lifestyle, including a nutritious diet and moderate exercise
- Do not have too much skin laxity
- Have realistic expectations about what liposuction can achieve
What Areas Does Liposuction Target?
During your initial consultation at VPSI, you will have the opportunity to discuss your areas of concern with one of our doctors in a safe and comfortable environment. You can choose to eliminate unwanted fat deposits in many different parts of the body, including the following:
Taking the First Steps
The first part of your journey will begin with contacting us to learn more about liposuction and confirm that you are a good candidate. You will experience friendly, helpful service from the first phone call through the initial visit.
When you meet with one of our doctors, you can anticipate a physical examination and review of your medical history. Your doctor will verify your eligibility for a safe and successful procedure based on this information. This appointment will also be an excellent opportunity to ask questions about the process, recovery, and results.

The Liposuction Process Explained
Different types of liposuction are available based on your individual needs and desires. Our practice performs both Suction Assisted Liposuction (SAL) and Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL). These liposuction procedures involve small incisions through which we can carefully remove excess fat tissue from the target treatment area.

Recovery and Aftercare
One of the reasons for the popularity of this procedure is that the recovery time is relatively mild compared with other types of plastic surgery. Recovery typically lasts just three to five days, though you should abstain from vigorous exercise for two to four weeks.
You can anticipate some discomfort, including swelling and bruising. These symptoms will clear up within a few days, and you can effectively manage them with pain medication.
Can Liposuction Be Performed In Combination With Other Procedures?
Liposuction techniques are often combined with other procedures to achieve the most pleasing aesthetic results. Most notably, you can combine liposuction with other body contouring procedures such as the tummy tuck, butt lift, and total body rejuvenation (mommy makeover). Your doctor will happily discuss combining liposuction with other procedures to obtain the best outcomes during your consultation.
