Liposuction removes excess fat deposits from specific parts of your body. The result is a slimmer, shapelier look. Board-certified plastic surgeons with Lehigh Valley Institute for Surgical Excellence at Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) perform many types of liposuction, including laser liposuction, to remove stubborn fat deposits.

Sometimes a healthy diet and exercise aren’t enough to make pockets of fat go away. For those stubborn areas, our board-certified plastic surgeons use liposuction to surgically remove excess fat. Say hello to a slimmer appearance with more definition and contours.

Types of liposuction (lipoplasty)

During liposuction, your doctor suctions fat deposits out of targeted body areas. We offer:

  • Laser liposuction, or laser-assisted liposuction: Low-dose laser energy beams liquefy fat before removal.
  • Traditional liposuction: A small, hollow tube attached to a vacuum breaks up and removes fat.

Benefits of liposuction

One liposuction treatment is often enough to reshape problem areas. Liposuction can slim down your:

  • Arms
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks
  • Face
  • Stomach
  • Thighs

What you should know about liposuction at LVHN

You’re in expert hands.

Our doctors perform all cosmetic surgeries that require anesthesia in our fully equipped operating room. There, you will receive safe, compassionate care.

We offer additional cosmetic procedures.

Liposuction won’t get rid of cellulite, skin dimples or loose, sagging skin. To address these issues, your doctor may recommend additional cosmetic surgery procedures, such as a tummy tuck or mommy makeover.
