THE DETAILS

For individuals who routinely use diet and exercise to control their weight, liposuction is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing stubborn fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. It is ideal for normal-weight people with firm, elastic skin.

Dr. Thomas and Dr. Jeffries perform this procedure at the hospital or surgical center on an outpatient basis. The most common liposuction technique used involves creating a tiny incision through which fat cells are suctioned out. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction is performed in certain areas of the body for enhanced results. Following surgery, some patients experience fluid drainage from incisions, bruising and mild discomfort such as swelling, burning and mild numbness of the skin. Usually patients can resume normal activity within a few days.

“Dr. Thomas is so down to earth and very professional. I really felt like he got to know me as a person and understood what I was looking for before he even talked about helping me with a procedure. The improvement I’ve seen is fantastic and I’m so happy with the work he’s done for me. It was so worth all the time and effort. You can really tell too, that Dr. Thomas has worked hard to make sure his clients have a good experience at The Center and the rest of the staff is amazing.”
