Liposuction surgery sculpts the body, removing unwanted collections of fat. Areas where liposuction may be performed include the neck, arms, abdomen, hips (love handles), buttocks, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. During the past decade, liposuction has gone through a revolution, so that today it is a much safer procedure, and the results are greatly improved, with less discomfort, bruising and swelling.
Approximately 400,000 liposuction procedures were performed in 2010, making it the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States.
Liposuction is among the plastic surgery procedures with the highest patient satisfaction ratings. Many patients experience an immediate improvement in their self-esteem and discover a greater self-confidence. In addition, many find greater access to different clothing styles and fashions and are less self-conscious at the gym, around the pool or at the beach.

Type(s) of Anesthesia
Palmer Cosmetic Surgery does not use general anesthesia. All of our procedures are performed under sedation anesthesia. Dr. Palmer will discuss in detail this type of anesthesia method during your consultation. For more information about liposuction surgery, click here.
Our patients will receive a complimentary 30 minute session of Ultra-Cavitation treatment. It is a painless, non-invasive treatment that breaks down scar tissue, increases lymphatic drainage, reduces fat and cellulite and tightens the skin with the use of ultrasonic waves. It reduces swelling and smooth out any irregularities that can result from liposuction.
