Despite a healthy diet and consistent exercise routine, it can be quite challenging to reduce stubborn fat, particularly in the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, upper arms, and parts of the back. At Neaman Plastic Surgery, we offer advanced liposuction techniques to help patients achieve the slimmer, more sculpted physique they’ve worked hard to achieve.



The Neaman Plastic Surgery Liposuction Gallery features abdomen, thigh, and arm liposuction cases. Take a look at these transformations and be sure to filter the selection based on age or by doctor!

A Comprehensive Liposuction Guide

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure designed to remove stubborn fat deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise. However, it’s important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss solution but rather a body contouring procedure. While many individuals can benefit from liposuction, the “perfect” candidate approaches the procedure with a clear understanding of its capabilities and limitations. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon can provide a comprehensive assessment and determine if liposuction is the right choice for an individual’s goals and circumstances. The perfect candidate for liposuction typically exhibits the following attributes:

Healthy Body Weight

Ideal candidates typically within 15-25 lbs. of their desired weight. They seek liposuction to address specific areas of localized fat, not for overall weight loss.

Good Skin Elasticity

Candidates with good skin elasticity and tone achieve better results as their skin shrinks smoothly after fat removal.

Realistic Expectation

Liposuction can dramatically improve body contours, but it’s not a cure-all. It works best in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle.

Stable Weight

Liposuction is beneficial if the candidate has maintained a stable weight for a significant period before the procedure since weight fluctuations post-surgery can alter the results.

Commitment to a Healthy Lifestyle

While liposuction permanently removes fat cells from the treated area, remaining fat cells can grow if the patient gains significant weight. Therefore, a balanced diet and regular exercise are crucial for maintaining results.

Not Pregnant or Nursing

Women who are pregnant, planning to become pregnant shortly, or currently nursing are generally advised to postpone liposuction.

What are the different types of liposuction?

Liposuction technology has evolved over the years, introducing various techniques that aim to improve results, reduce recovery time, and minimize complications. As the method has continually gained popularity, multiple approaches are used to create varying outcomes:

Tumescent Liposuction

This is the most common form of liposuction, involving a large amount of medicated solution injected into the areas being treated. The solution contains a mix of saline, a local anesthetic (usually lidocaine), and a drug that contracts the blood vessels. The solution helps to swell and stiffen the fat, making it easier to remove. It also reduces blood loss, pain, and bruising.

Suction-Assisted Liposuction (SAL)

This traditional method uses a cannula (a thin, hollow tube) attached to a vacuum to suction out the fat.

Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL)

PAL devices use a cannula that moves rapidly back and forth, allowing the surgeon to pull out fat more easily, especially in denser areas.

Personalized care

At Neaman Plastic Surgery, our brand and tone revolve around personalized care, empathy, and a commitment to helping individuals achieve their unique aesthetic goals. We believe that everyone deserves to feel confident and comfortable in their own skin, and our procedures are designed to do just that—empower individuals to embrace their beauty and feel their best.

Treatment Options for Eliminating Fat Under the Chin

What procedures can be combined with liposuction?

Remember, the decision to combine procedures depends on the individual’s goals, health, and the surgeon’s expertise. Combining surgeries can offer the advantage of a single recovery period. Still, discussing the risks and benefits with a qualified plastic surgeon is essential. Common combinations include:

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

This procedure removes excess skin and tightens the abdominal muscles after fat removal.

Breast Augmentation or Reduction

Liposuction can contour the area around the breasts or remove excess fat from the breasts.

Mommy Makeover

A combination of procedures (like breast lift and tummy tuck) tailored to postpartum women.

Buttock Augmentation or Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

Fat removed through liposuction can be purified and injected into the buttocks.

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Removing excess skin from the upper arms after fat extraction.

Thigh Lift

Addressing sagging skin in the thigh region post-liposuction.

Face or Neck Lift

Enhancing the contours of the face or neck after removing excess fat.

Body Lift

Addressing sagging skin in multiple body areas after significant weight loss or liposuction.

What areas of the body can be liposuctioned?

Liposuction can target various areas of the body to remove unwanted fat deposits. It’s essential to understand that while liposuction effectively removes fat from these areas, it’s not a weight loss solution. It’s best suited for individuals close to their ideal weight with stubborn fat pockets that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Always consult a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine which areas suit liposuction based on individual goals and anatomy. Here’s a list of common areas that can be treated with liposuction:

Upper Body

Common treatment areas for your upper body can be:

  • Upper Arms: To address “bat wings” or sagging upper arms.
  • Neck and Chin: To address a double chin or excess fat in the neck area.

Lower Body

Treatment areas for the lower body can include:

  • Stomach: To reduce belly fat and achieve a flatter stomach.
  • Flanks (Love Handles): The areas on the sides of the abdomen.
  • Hips: To contour and reduce fat in the hip region.
  • Thighs: Both the inner and outer thighs can be targeted.
  • Buttocks: To reduce excess fat, but not to be confused with a Brazilian Butt Lift where fat is added.
  • Back: Including the upper and lower back regions.
  • Chest/Breasts: Liposuction can be used to treat gynecomastia in men or reduce breast size in women.
  • Knees: To remove fat pockets near the knee area.
  • Pubic Area: To reduce a bulge in the mons pubis.

Dr. Neaman is the best. I had a circumferential abdominoplasty with butt auto-augmentation and breast lift/reduction. I wish I had the before/after pics to put up here. Needless to say, I look amazing.
