Liposuction is one of the most sought-after surgical procedures at Meadows Surgical Arts, and we know our patients have questions about the procedure. We're happy to help! This is Liposuction 101.


Liposuction is the surgical removal of fat from a specific area of the body. This surgery is minimally-invasive, using a small cannula to "suck" the fat out, never to return. Liposuction may be performed with the assistance of lasers, called SmartLipo, to liquify the fat before removal (to fine tune the results), or may be performed using power-assisted liposuction (to facilitate fat transfer to another part of the body). This is body sculpting and contouring at its finest, as this procedure can be performed on almost any area of the body. Our patients typically ask for liposuction of the abdomen, waist, hips, and inner and/or outer thighs, and sometimes request liposuction in the neck/chin, arms, buttocks, knees, ankles, and back.

We recently talked about the top 5 reasons our patients choose liposuction. In short, they are:

  1. Boost confidence or emotional health;

  2. Fine tune weight loss results;

  3. Target and eliminate trouble spots;
