Micro Liposuction

Liposuction is a safe, minimally invasive surgical procedure, micro liposuction is designed to remove inches, not pounds, and is ideal for areas that do not respond well to diet and exercise, like the lower face, neck, chin and jowls.  Microliposuction is also effective for hard-to-contour areas around the waist, arms, thighs, buttocks, knees, ankles and abdomen.  During microliposuction, fat deposits are removed by means of a cannula, a very thin, hollow tube attached to a vacuum.  This surgical instrument (finer than the one used in major liposuction) is inserted and then manipulated under the skin by the dermatological surgeon.  The subdermal fat is then suctioned out through the tube.  The microliposuction result is immediately improved body contour in hard-to-target areas.  The refined, delicate (and minimal) procedure gives a safe, predictable and satisfying cosmetic result. The fat removed during micro liposuction can be used immediately for fat transfer, that is, to fill collagen-depleted areas like nasolabial folds and marionette lines.  Or it can be stored for future use.

  • The procedure is ideal for patients who are at or near their ideal weight.  Microliposuction is not meant to replace healthy diet and regular exercise, but to target areas for improved contour.

  • Microliposuction is performed by a dermatological surgeon under local anesthesia, using a method that minimizes recovery time and maximizes safety. Post procedure, special elastic bandages, for compression, and dressings, for drainage, are applied.

  • The microliposuction patient can usually return to light to normal activities within twenty-four hours, though a more extensive procedure can require up to a week to fully recover.  Downtime will be determined in consultation with the dermatologist pre and post procedure.
