What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure which removes unwanted fat beneath the skin. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, we use my expertise as a professional artist to the advantage of the patient by doing away with the notion of two-dimensional/spot area liposuction.
Three-dimensional contouring sometimes includes circumferential lipoplasty- removal of fat from the entire torso, arms, or thighs. The use of custom-made, small diameter, long cannulas (with special tips) aids in the removal of fat and increases the predictability of healing. Fewer and smaller entrance sites are needed which yields smoother, more natural results. Specific garments, proper diet, and exercise in the postoperative course all aid in achieving the best outcomes.
Three-dimensional liposuction has the additional benefit of facilitating “shrink wrapping” of tissues which leads to more dramatic positive shape changes. If treatments are not circumferential, then there can be little shrink wrapping. Initially, garments are for controlling swelling and then to guide the shrink wrap effect and give stability and confidence in healing.
Am I a Candidate For Liposuction?
The ideal liposuction candidates are healthy individuals who have a collection of localized fat which remains intact despite a healthy diet and regular exercise. All candidates should be in good general health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure. Common focus areas for liposuction include:
- Flanks and hips
- Upper arms
- Thighs (outer thighs, inner thighs, anterior thighs and knees)
- Neck and chin
- Calves and ankles
Liposuction is not an alternative for weight loss. It removes localized stubborn fat in areas where it persists. If you have a combination of stubborn fat and excess skin, you can combine liposuction with an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) to maximize your body contouring results.

We take pride in what patients say about us
I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am with my decision to go through 2 surgeries with Dr. Spiro. Words cannot express how Dr. Spiro has made me feel physically and mentally he has truly transformed me. My small breast and wide hips were always something that made me self-conscious, but after having breast augmentation and liposuction it has given much confidence. Today I am a size 10 from a size 16 and a 36C from a 38B. Dr. Spiro gave me the most natural breast augmentation when it comes to both look and feel, with the liposuction he has contoured my hips to be proportioned with the rest of my body. I honestly couldn’t have imagined better results. Thank you for exceeding my expectations!!!! Dr. Spiro has an impeccable reputation and his staff was extremely friendly, thorough and knowledgeable in preparing me for my surgeries, I can’t thank Dr. Spiro enough!!!!
Dr. Spiro- As we ring in 2015, I just wanted to thank you for the journey you went on with me-getting me through multiple surgeries and always being a source of hope and anticipation. I will be 3 years cancer free and without you my recovery both mentally and physically would not be anywhere near the same. I cannot put my gratitude into words- I carry it in my heart. I took off my garment today, 6 months to the day of my last surgery. I actually liked the garment, it comforted me. I will actually miss it! Go Figure! My legs are amazing and in the year of butts being “in”, I am Rockin’ it! It’s so amazing and has given me the confidence my illness took away. I send you and everyone in the office all the best for 2015. What you do transforms lives and your care transforms the human spirit. Thank you for everything!
Dear Dr. Spiro, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for changing my life. Even in my early stages of healing now, your gifted talent is clearly visible. Never in my life did I ever imagine having the contour, shape and sexiness in my legs. I’ve worked out my entire life and been a small size as well, yet I’ve never felt comfortable wearing shorts, dresses or skirts. You have changed that for me! Your tremendous skill is unparalleled and your patience with each and every question has always been present. If you haven’t already, you should consider insuring your hands with Lloyds of London!!! I feel fortunate to have found you and I am extremely proud to call you my surgeon.
Initially I went to see Dr. Spiro for liposuction in my abdomen, but after seeing some of his work I was also interested in breast augmentation. During my exam Dr. Spiro addressed all my concerns and we had decided to do a complete tummy tuck and augmentation to get the results I was looking for. At this point I was not having anymore children and was excited to get my “old” body back. I felt confident he was the surgeon for me. His staff is also wonderful. The surgery went as planned. Of course there is pain involved. Would I do it again? Absolutely. My body looks better at 38 than it did at 20. My stomach is flat and my breasts look so natural. Thank you again Dr. Spiro for all your wonderful work!
