How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

What Is Liposculpture?

While you might have heard about liposuction, you might be a little puzzled when you see the term "liposculpture." Dr. Narasimhan uses proven liposuction techniques, but prefers to talk about this procedure as liposculpture to emphasize the essential artistic component that a truly skilled surgeon can provide. His artful eye, combined with rigorous training and real-world experience, can make the difference and deliver a smooth, satisfying result.

An Attractive Body with Liposculpture

Liposculpture may be right for you if you are close to your ideal body weight, have good skin tone, and would like to reduce pockets of unwanted fat. Dr. Narasimhan offers both tumescent and ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) to treat such areas as the:

  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Waist
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Face
  • Double Chin and Neck

At your consultation, Dr. Narasimhan can review your areas of cosmetic concern and give you more information about the body contouring treatment he recommends. In some cases, liposculpture may be used instead of or in addition to such procedures as buttocks lift, tummy tuck, or breast augmentation.

Why Choose Dr. Narasimhan

Dr. Narasimhan stands out from other surgeons for many reasons, including:

  • Possesses an in-depth understanding of the anatomy of the entire body
  • Offers the latest liposuction techniques for personalized results
  • Utilizes minimally invasive techniques for fastest recovery

Recovery Following Liposculpture

Dr. Narasimhan takes steps to maximize comfort and minimize recovery time after the lipo procedures he performs in the Tampa area. Most patients can expect a few weeks of residual bruising and swelling, and may not feel back in the swing of things for about 5 to 7 days. Be sure to follow your post-op instructions carefully for optimal results. Dr. Narasimhan will share much more about safety and recovery during your consultation.

After they've fully recovered, our patients have said that:

  • Their clothes fit better
  • Exercise is easier/more comfortable
  • They are more satisfied with their body image
  • You can enjoy your slimmer look for years to come if you maintain a healthful diet and continue to exercise regularly.

Dr. Narasimhan respects that scheduling liposuction is a major decision, and even with all the facts and it can still feel a little scary. As a seasoned professional, he understands that being a good doctor means more than simply having surgical skill — it's about offering a compassionate bedside manner to the women and men in his care, and taking the steps to ensure their safe recovery and long-term happiness with their outcome.

Liposuction FAQ

What are the potential risks of liposuction?

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Narasimhan, liposuction is a safe, effective way to reduce unwanted fat. But, like any surgical procedure, liposuction is not without risk. Potential complications are rare and may include infection, bleeding, and contour irregularities. Complications related to anesthesia are also possible. During your consultation, Dr. Narasimhan reviews your personal medical history to determine if you are healthy enough to undergo liposuction, and he'll give you a better idea about your specific risk for these complications.

Does liposuction treat cellulite?

Not quite. Although many people associate cellulite with excess fat, it actually comes from connective tissue that pulls on skin from below. Extra fat can exacerbate the appearance of cellulite, but removing fat won't treat it completely. During your consultation, Dr. Narasimhan will examine your areas of concern and help you understand what liposuction can do for you. If you're primarily bothered by cellulite, he may make alternative recommendations to help you achieve the look you want.

Can liposuction help me lose weight?

Liposuction is not intended to be a weight loss procedure, and any measurable weight loss that occurs as a result of surgery is likely to be negligible. High-volume fat removal via liposuction increases the risk of complications, and Dr. Narasimhan doesn't recommend the procedure for patients who are significantly overweight. Instead, liposuction is meant to reduce smaller, more localized pockets of fat that may be resistant to diet and exercise adjustments. Some patients have also said that, after surgery, they're more inclined to observe healthy habits in order to maintain or even build upon their results. Therefore, while liposuction isn't a weight loss tool in and of itself, it can be a motivator that leads to improved health and fitness.
