Seattle Liposuction

As residents of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, we are lucky to live in a region that prides itself on a healthy lifestyle. However, sometimes diet and exercise alone simply cannot address certain areas of persistent excess fat, and this is where liposuction can play a wonderful role. Liposuction can not only remove stubborn pockets of excess fat but it can contour and shape areas of the body to create a more aesthetically pleasing look.

What exactly is Liposuction?

Liposuction, also known as lipo or liposcuplture is the science and art of using various surgical techniques to help shape and contour specific areas of the body. The term “Liposculpture” is often preferred to “Liposuction” because it implies shaping in addition to simply removing fat. In addition, Dr. Salemy uses various techniques such as ultrasound energy to help tighten the overlying skin, which enhances the final result.

Where on my body can Liposuction be performed?

Dr. Salemy can utilize liposuction on the tummy, hips, arms, legs, buttocks, and under the neck to remove excess fat, tighten the skin, and create a result that is in balance with the rest of your body. At your consultation in our Seattle office, Dr. Salemy will sit down with you and carefully review your goals. He’ll then examine you and provide you a comprehensive plan for how to best achieve the results you desire.

Am I a good candidate for Liposuction?

During your consultation, Dr. Salemy will discuss with you whether or not he feels you are a good candidate for the procedure, but in general, ideal candidates for liposuction are:

  • In good health overall
  • Have specific areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise
  • Do not smoke
  • Have realistic expectations




What is involved with the Liposuction procedure?

Liposuction is in most cases an outpatient procedure (you will not need to stay in a hospital) and lasts around 2-3 hours, depending on the area of the body that is targeted. It is performed with local anesthetic and gentle sedation that is administered by a Board-Certified Anesthesiologist. Several tiny incisions, each 3-4 mm in length, are utilized for the procedure, which are almost imperceptible when fully healed. You will wake up wearing a surgical garment and be able to go home within a couple of hours.

What is the recovery like after Liposuction?

Recovery varies depending on the extent of the procedure and the individual, but in general Dr. Salemy recommends setting aside 7-10 days after your procedure to recover at home. Dr. Salemy will see you in our Seattle office at regular intervals to monitor your progress, and you can expect your bruising to resolve within 2-3 weeks and most of your swelling to resolve by 4-6 weeks.
