Liposuction is a pretty straightforward process and a very popular plastic surgery procedure for men and women offered by the board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Mune Gowda, MD, FACS. The plastic surgeon will start with an injection to help loosen the fat particles and then insert a thin metal tube through a small incision and remove the fat by suction. You need only one incision for each area and they’re tiny so that scars are virtually undetectable with liposuction. All this can be done under twilight sedation and / or anesthesia (depending on your case and the areas to be treated).

Liposuction Treatment Options
Most men and women undergo liposuction plastic surgery to remove excessive fat in specific areas and excellent results are seen in people with a relatively normal weight and firm, elastic skin.
The Troy / Novi liposuction plastic surgeon, Dr. Mune Gowda, finds that most frequently treated areas in women are the abdomen, hips, thighs, and knees. Liposuction for men includes the love handles, abdomen, and enlarged male breasts (gynecomastia) are most often treated. These are areas where body contouring with liposuction produces impressive results.
Dr. Gowda offers a full range of liposuction techniques to cater to every patients individual body requirements and budgets. The custom liposuction technique employed will depend on such factors including amount of fat you desire to remove, areas to be improved upon, and your body type. No matter your starting shape, we can use liposuction to get you “your best body” today.
Where Liposuction can be Performed
- Upper arms
During liposuction plastic surgery, tiny incisions are made by the best in class Detroit plastic surgeon in the skin. However, they are not large enough to require stitches, and these scars inevitably fade and become imperceptible. Liposuction can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as buttock augmentation, tummy tuck, facelift, breast augmentation with breast implants, or breast reduction surgery.
What is interesting to note is that liposuction permanently removes fat. Because we are born with a certain number of fat cells if fat cells are removed they do not “grow back”. When they are surgically removed during liposuction plastic surgery, they cannot be produced again – ever. But if we overeat and don’t exercise, the remaining fat cells can expand. We will have less fat cells and less chance of putting on weight again if we exercise and eat in moderation. Liposuction is not a substitute for a good diet, but a treatment for removing bulges of fat.
