Liposuction Surgery in Wilmington, NC
la Belle vie Plastic Surgery
Liposuction is a solution for anyone that’s trying to lose weight but have some troublesome areas that aren’t responding to exercise or a healthy diet. We offer the best liposuction in Wilmington, NC, which will remove the subcutaneous fat that lives under the skin and adds extra inches where you don’t need them. This will improve your figure and make you feel far better about your shape.
How Does it Work
We utilize tumescent liposuction techniques to improve those troublesome areas. With tumescent liposuction, we place a fluid containing local anesthetics and saltwater into the areas that we are going to remove fat. Blunt metal tubes (cannulas) are then used to “suck out” the excess fat.
Depending on the area(s) to be treated, liposuction can be done with local anesthesia, but larger areas tend to require general anesthesia.
Recovery is generally well-tolerated and “downtime” is usually only a few days.
What Areas Can be Treated
Areas of the body that can be treated include:
- Chest/Bra Fat
Advantages of Liposuction
- Safe, minimally invasive procedure. “Downtown” is only a few days
- Bacteriostatic lidocaine may decrease the risk of infections
- Promotes tissue clotting resulting in tissue tightening
- Less blood loss and trauma compared to other procedures like Tummy Tuck and Brachioplasty
- Removes undesired fat
- Intravenous fluid replacement is not needed

Who’s the Best Candidate
The best candidates for liposuction are people with stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise, have good skin tone, and are healthy. Liposuction is not an effective treatment for achieving weight loss, treating cellulite, or treating internally/visceral fat.
