Your Liposuction Procedure

Dr. Weinberg performs tumescent liposuction, infusing areas of unwanted fat with a saline (salt water) solution that also contains a local anesthetic. This technique reduces bruising and makes the fat easier to remove.

For small to moderate size areas, such as the neck, patients usually do not require general anesthetic. Larger areas may require the use of general anesthesia. Once the areas are prepared, Dr. Weinberg creates small incisions and inserts a thin, hollow tube called a cannula to remove the targeted fat cells. The procedure usually takes 1 to 3 hours to complete, depending on how many areas are being treated. Tumescent liposuction has minimal downtime and allows many of our liposuction patients to return to work the next day, although experiences vary.

Most of our liposuction patients opt to have their procedures performed at our clinic because they appreciate the personal attention of our registered nurses and the pleasant environment of our private facility. However, because Dr. Weinberg is Division Head of Plastic Surgery at Trillium Health Centre, arrangements can easily be made for those patients who may wish to have their procedure in the hospital, such as those having large volumes of fat removed or patients with significant health issues.

For answers to common questions about liposuction, review Dr. Weinberg's Liposuction FAQ page.

Why Choose Dr. Weinberg for Your Liposuction

Because liposuction can involve significant shifts in the body's salt and water balance and requires sophisticated medical equipment, it's important to only have liposuction with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Weinberg, at a recognized and fully certified facility like Mississauga Cosmetic Surgery Clinic. For the strictest attention to safety, Dr. Weinberg always performs liposuction in an accredited surgical facility or hospital and limits the amount of fat he removes in a single surgery.

Dr. Weinberg brings decades of experience to every procedure and has helped hundreds of men and women reshape their bodies through liposuction.

Liposuction Cost & Related Procedures

The cost for liposuction depends on the size and number of areas to be treated, as well as whether the procedure is performed under local or general anesthetic. A more precise answer will be available to you once Dr. Weinberg has had a chance to examine your treatment areas in your consultation.

Liposuction is often performed along with other cosmetic surgery procedures to fine-tune the results. Dr. Weinberg commonly combines liposuction with the following procedures:

When patients undergo a Brazilian butt lift procedure, liposuction is also involved. Dr. Weinberg harvests fat from an unwanted area using liposuction and, after processing it to remove impurities, re-injects the fat into the buttocks.

Nonsurgical Alternatives

Dr. Weinberg offers 2 exciting nonsurgical fat-reducing techniques that are distinct from liposuction in that they do not require any incisions. This makes them ideal for patients with localized areas of unwanted fat and patients who are looking for somewhat smaller reductions than the dramatic changes in body contour that can be achieved with liposuction.

  • LipoSonix® shrinks fatty deposits using high-frequency, focused ultrasound.
  • CoolSculpting® reduces fat using intense cold to freeze the fat cells.

Recovery Information

Healing rates vary after liposuction. Depending on the amount of fat removed and the number of locations treated, patients may return to work within 24 hours to 1 or 2 weeks after treatment. Those having liposuction of the abdomen, hips, buttocks or thighs are asked to wear a support garment such as Spanx® post-operatively for 1 to 2 days. Patients can usually return to exercise and other strenuous activity within 2 to 4 weeks. Full recovery from bruising and swelling can take anywhere from 1 to 6 months. The slimmer contour achieved after liposuction can be maintained with a sensible diet and regular exercise.

Possible Risks & Complications

As with all surgical procedures, there are possible complications with liposuction. While the risk is minimal, potential complications specific to your surgery will be discussed in detail at your consultation. For a discussion of general risks of surgery, review Dr. Weinberg's Your First Visit page.
