Liposuction

Ideal Patient:

  • Excess fat deposits on body, neck or face
  • Fat that does not respond to diet or exercise

The Method:

Do you have unwanted fat in areas that you just can’t seem to rid yourself of no matter how hard you try? Liposuction may be the procedure for you. Liposuction reshapes the body’s silhouette with removal of excess fat. Common areas for liposuction include:

  • abdomen
  • hips / “love handles”
  • thighs
  • chin
  • neck
  • upper arms
  • breasts (male and female)
  • knees
  • calves
  • ankles

The Procedure:

Liposuction, also called lipoplasty or suction lipectomy, is the surgical removal of localized or regional excess fatty tissue. Under general anesthesia, a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through small, inconspicuous incisions hidden within the natural creases of the body. Using a controlled motion, dislodged fat is suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum. Compression garments may assist patients during the healing process to help skin conform to new body contours.

“I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kagan”

Dr. Kagan recently performed a facelift procedure on me. He does an unbelievable job. He definitely keeps current on new procedures and has had a lot of years of experience. What I appreciated about Dr. Kagan was his great work and professionalism. He was so easy to talk with. He really listened to what I wanted! He is very kind and encouraging. He wants his patients to be happy with their results. I also appreciated his staff. Ever person on his staff are incredibly kind, sweet and helpful. They too listen to you and want to help. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kagan if you are considering any plastic surgery. I believed so much in his work that I was willing to drive 3 hours for my facelift. Thank you Dr. Kagan and staff!
