Liposuction can remove stubborn fat and unsightly bulges to trim the body and accentuate your physique!

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction improves the contours and proportions of your figure. Many patients choose to undergo liposuction in Atlanta to attain a more sculpted and tone body. This can be achieved by removing unwanted fat from specific areas of the body.

As we get older, our bodies lose the ability to eliminate fat. Diet and exercise alone may not be enough to give you back a toned and tight body, but liposuction can! Some of the most common areas treated with liposuction include the chin, neck, arms, stomach, and hips. The back, love handles, buttocks, and thighs are also common treatment areas. Liposuction can also be used as a male breast reduction technique. Lipo surgery is not an alternative to weight loss. Liposuction can remove areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

What Are The Benefits Of Liposuction In Atlanta, GA?

Liposuction technology has changed over the years. Patients no longer experience the extensive downtime that was common when the procedure was first introduced. By using the most advanced liposuction techniques available, Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team can help you eliminate stubborn fat to restore your figure and confidence.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Liposuction In Atlanta?

In order to be considered for liposuction, you should be close to your ideal weight. During your consultation, our liposuction surgeons will first discuss your diet and exercise routines. If you are a liposuction candidate, we will examine your fatty deposits to determine the best approach. Our plastic surgery team will also discuss what you can expect after liposuction. Depending on your goals and treatment areas, minimally invasive liposuction options, such as CoolSculpting®, may be right for you. Liposuction may also be combined with other treatments such as skin tightening, tummy tuck, or mommy makeover to achieve optimal results.

What Are My Liposuction Options?

There are two primary types of liposuction: tumescent lipo and super-wet lipo. These techniques use different amounts of wetting solution to remove excess fat. Tumescent liposuction is distinguished from the super-wet approach by the amount of fluid injected. Additionally, our Atlanta plastic surgery office offers non-surgical liposuction using CoolSculpting®. Learn more about these liposuction procedures below:

Super-Wet Liposuction:

The wetting solution is equal to the volume of fat removed. This technique requires intravenous (IV) sedation or general anesthesia.

Tumescent Liposuction:

This wetting solution is 2 to 3 times the volume of fat removed. This solution causes fat deposits to swell (tumescent). Tumescent liposuction is the most commonly used technique and requires either local anesthesia sedation or general anesthesia


CoolSculpting® uses innovative cooling technology to target stubborn fat cells without the need for incisions or downtime. During this procedure, fat cells are targeted using cryolipolysis and naturally removed by your body.

What Can I Expect During Liposuction Surgery?

During traditional liposuction, our liposuction surgeons will inject the wetting solution into the treatment area(s). The solution consists of saltwater, a medication that helps decrease bleeding and bruising, and a local anesthetic. This anesthetic is used to minimize discomfort both during and after surgery temporarily.

After the fluid has been injected, your liposuction surgeon will make a small incision in the treatment area. A narrow tube that is attached to a vacuum pump will then be inserted through the incision. Your liposuction surgeon will remove the unwanted fat cells by moving the tube back and forth to dislodge them. After the fat is removed, the incisions are closed.

What Can I Expect After Liposuction Surgery?

Liposuction is typically an outpatient procedure. However, if you were given local anesthesia or IV sedation, you will need someone to drive you home. Most patients return to work after a few days and can resume normal activities within two weeks. The outcome will vary based on the area and volume of fat cells removed.

Following liposuction surgery in Atlanta, patients may experience mild discomfort, along with bruising and swelling. Compression garments should be worn to combat swelling following the procedure. The full results of lipo surgery can be seen in the months following your procedure.

What Results Can I Expect From Liposuction?

During your liposuction consultation, our body contouring experts at Astra Plastic Surgery will discuss your expected results and how to best maintain your new body contours. It is important to note that although the fat cells extracted during liposuction are removed, liposuction surgery will not prevent you from gaining additional weight. To maintain your liposuction results, we encourage patients to follow a healthy diet and regular exercise routine.

How Much Does Liposuction In Atlanta Cost?

Liposuction is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not typically covered by health insurance. It’s always best to check with your insurance provider about your coverage options. Our Liposuction approach is customized to each patient’s needs. We provide a cost of treatment after your liposuction consultation. The price is based on the length of the procedure, the treatment area(s), and the amount of fat removal required. Payment should be made at the time of your liposuction procedure. Astra Plastic Surgery offers financing through CareCredit® and Alphaeon® Credit; we also accept personal checks, cash, and credit cards.
