Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States and is very safe when performed by an expert and experienced surgeon. It can improve the curves of the body, shaping the appearance most desired.
Liposuction procedures target fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise, like the fat around the tummy, legs and thighs, suctioning them out while under the effects of a local anesthetic (we use what is called a tumescent solution, which is a basic medicated solution) or in conjunction with Total IV Anesthesia (TIVA) in which the patient is put to sleep in a very safe alternative to a deeper General Anesthesia.
Once the stubborn areas of fat have been reduced through the suctioning of the excess fat, years of experience allows Dr. Farias to expertly shape the body during the liposuction procedure to the desired outcome, targeting additional layers of fat that exist in deeper layers under the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions:
- Is liposuction painful? We like to call it a “good hurt,” like when you visit a personal trainer. The short-lived discomfort you will feel gives way to the new body you will enjoy.
- Will I have noticeable scars? While you’re healing there may be some noticeable marks, but they will fade over time. Most of our procedures use a device that requires a very small incision, leaving barely recognizable marks about the size of a freckle or a small blemish. We will discuss this while prepping for your procedure.
- How long will it take to recover? Most patients need 1-3 days to fully recover, although this depends on the amount of work you’re having done.
- Can I drive myself home? Although many procedures use a local anesthetic, for your safety we require a responsible adult be available to drive you home after surgery.
