Liposuction is a method of surgical body contouring by targeting body fat for removal. Contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not a solution for weight loss or major fat reduction, but when a persons weight has stabilized and attempts to reduce problem areas are exhausted, liposuction can reduce those persistent fat deposits that just won’t go away.


Despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness. Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion, and ultimately, enhancing your self image.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Liposuction?

Many areas of the body can be treated, including:

Hips and buttocks

Abdomen and waist

Upper arms

Inner knee

Chest area

Cheeks, chin and neck

Calves and ankles



The cost of liposuction varies, depending on how many areas are treated.  We usually charge separately for different areas.


The Liposuction Procedure

Through a small incision, Dr. Thakur inserts a tube to manipulate and remove body fat. For safety reasons there is a limit to the amount of fat that can be removed.


In some cases, liposuction is performed alone, in other cases it is used with plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift, breast reduction or a tummy tuck.


Liposuction Candidates

The decision to have liposuction is extremely personal and you’ll have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications are acceptable.


If you are bothered by excess fat deposits – located anywhere on your body – that don’t respond to diet or exercise, liposuction may be right for you.


Ideal candidates for liposuction

Adults within 30% of their ideal weight who have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone

Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing


Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for body contouring
