We all have them. Those small pockets of fat that we just can’t seem to get rid of no matter how hard we diet and exercise. Luckily, there is liposuction, a minimally invasive treatment that removes unwanted fat from almost any area on the body including the abdomen, buttocks, cheeks, chin, hips, knees, neck, thighs, and upper arms. Liposuction is not a weight loss technique, it is a body contouring technique that specifically targets fatty bulges to sculpt and re-contour the affected areas so that they are more proportional to the rest of your body.* The result is a firmer, leaner, younger looking you.*

Liposuction surgery can be used as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with another cosmetic procedure such as abdominoplasty, neck lift, face lift, or other body contouring procedures. Dr. David Sieber has completed advanced training in all of the latest fat loss technologies, and brings his extensive expertise and artistic eye to every patient that he sees. A successful liposuction procedure is one that provides natural looking balance to your face and body.* The best candidate for liposuction surgery is physically healthy, and within 10 lbs. of his goal weight, but with areas of excess fat that are simply resistant to regular diet and exercise.

Liposuction Technique

During your liposuction procedure, Dr. Sieber will make a series of small incisions in the areas being treated. A fluid is then placed through these incisions to both numb the area and make removal of the fat easier with a narrow, blunt-tipped tube called a cannula. Once your ideal contour has been achieved, the incisions are closed with sutures which will be removed in the office one week after surgery.

Preparing for Liposuction Surgery

As with any major surgery, all medications and supplements which cause an increased risk of bleeding should be stopped 2 weeks prior to surgery. Please see our list of medications and supplements to avoid. As always, make sure to check with your doctor before stopping any medications.

Recovery from Liposuction Surgery

Immediately after surgery, you will be put in a compression garment to help reduce the accumulation of fluid beneath the skin. This should be worn day and night for 6-8 weeks following surgery. Your binder, or compression garment, may be removed to shower. Typically, recovery from liposuction is relatively quick.* Most patients are ready to go back to work within a couple of days. Pain is minimal and usually well controlled with medication. You will have moderate swelling and bruising for a few days to weeks after the procedure, but this will subside with time.*

You should be up and walking immediately after surgery. If you’re feeling up to it, you should be able to return to your normal exercise routine within 1-2 weeks after surgery.*

You may notice some swelling for the first couple of weeks after surgery that may take up to 3 months to fully resolve. You can expect your final results somewhere between 3-6 months following your procedure.*


Q: Will having liposuction help me lose weight?

A: Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It’s a body contouring procedure that will remove stubborn pockets of fat and help your clothes fit better, but most patients do not lose any significant amount of weight from liposuction.

Q: What happens to the extra skin after liposuction?

A: The amount of skin contraction which occurs after liposuction surgery is going to be dependent on your age and the quality of your skin.* Healthy skin usually contracts after surgery. During your initial consultation, Dr. Sieber will access your anatomy as well as your skin to tell you whether or not he feels that liposuction will be able to meet your goals or if you’ll need additional surgery to remove and contour any excess skin.

Q: If I gain weight, will the fat return to the areas where I had liposuction?

A: Though liposuction removes your fatty tissue, gaining a significant amount of weight after surgery will adversely affect your results since you will regain fatty tissue proportionally throughout your body. Liposuction results are best maintained by those patients who eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly and maintain a stable weight.*

I couldn’t be more pleased and excited about the refresh Dr. Sieber did on my face using a combination of botox and fillers. I had a baby a year ago and my face looked completely deflated. It felt to me that I looked like I had aged 5 years instantly by having a baby over 40. Dr. Sieber looked closely at my face and listened to my desires and fears in terms of the results I was seeking. I really liked that he took a conservative approach and followed up to check in and tweak things once the fillers and I had time to settle in.*

Dr. Sieber is a caring, friendly and talented doctor. I had two long consultations (free of charge) before scheduling my BBL (Brazilian butt lift). The staff and Dr. Sieber made me feel calm and relaxed the day of surgery. The results are amazing. Dr. Sieber understands a woman’s body and totally changed the shape of mine. I could not recommend him highly enough. I now go to him for my Botox and Juvederm.*

Dr. Sieber was fantastic throughout the entire process. From the beginning, he was patient with my questions and never made me feel pressured about making a decision. Once deciding that I was going to move forward with a breast augmentation, he made sure that I understood the process of the procedure and what I could expect post-surgery. I could not be happier with the results!*

Dr. Sieber is the best. I interviewed with numerous doctors. He pays close attention to detail. He called and checked on me and my results on a regular basis. My tummy procedure exceeded my expectation.*

Dr Sieber was very kind, knowledgeable and patient. He was able to answer all of my questions and put me completely at ease during the consultation as well as during the actual procedure. He made sure that I understood each part of the process which went a long way in alleviating my fears…after all, this is my face!*

Dr. Dave Sieber and his staff are so awesome! Dr. Sieber is personable yet professional, his work is impeccable. He listens to his patient and works with them to achieve what they want. He’s like my hair dresser, a magician, you just want to do a happy dance with the results, only these results are lasting. Ok, but seriously, the procedure was very smooth, the staff and the doctors (Dr Sieber and the anesthesiologist) had great communication and made sure I was comfortable with very clear and concise pre op and post op directions. The healing process was very easy and the results are FABULOUS. Side note, Dr. Sieber has really awesome skin, I feel like this is impressive and important because really, would you trust a dentist with bad teeth? I am so elated and satisfied with the results, the size is perfect and they look and feel very natural. They are exactly what I wanted.*

Dr. Sieber is attentive, responsive, and well trained. I had seen him for Botox and filler and he had done both without any pain or bruising and more importantly the results were fabulous. He has met with me on time at each appointment. He communicates what to expect, made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure, checked on my healing every day post procedure. He couldn’t be more delightful not more talented. I had seen other plastic surgeons for in office treatments over the past decade and Dr. Sieber is at the top of the list in terms of delivering the desired outcome and high quality care.*
