Liposuction, a highly sought-after body contouring procedure, is renowned for effectively eliminating stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. This transformative procedure, performed by plastic surgeons, is designed to sculpt and refine the body, enhancing your natural contours and providing a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Liposuction is not merely about fat removal; it is a body sculpting strategy that targets fatty tissue in specific areas, resulting in a more balanced and proportionate physique. The benefits of liposuction at the Boston Center for Plastic Surgery set our practice apart from other providers. Here are five reasons why you should consider Boston Center for Plastic Surgery for your liposuction procedure.

Liposuction is not merely about fat removal; it is a body sculpting strategy.

1. Convenient In-Office Procedure with Anesthesia Options

Over the years, many patients have had a negative experience when going under general anesthesia for liposuction procedures. This is primarily due to the possibility of experiencing negative side effects such as fatigue, nausea, vomiting, longer recovery time, blurry vision, and more.

At Boston Center for Plastic Surgery, we often use local anesthesia for liposuction because the comfort and safety of our patients are paramount. A gentle sedation, or “twilight” anesthesia, can be used based on patient preference, as well. 

2. Specialist Aesthetic Surgery Trained Providers

Our team of plastic surgeons has years of experience performing liposuction and other aesthetic body contouring procedures. Their extensive training and dedication to patient care ensure safe and effective treatment outcomes. Our team of liposuction experts includes plastic surgeons Dr. Miller, Dr. Doherty, Dr. Sanan and Dr. Tandon.

3. Latest Liposuction Tools

Power-Assisted Liposuction

At Boston Center for Plastic Surgery, we are committed to utilizing the most advanced tools and techniques in the field of plastic surgery, including power-assisted liposuction (PAL). This innovative liposuction procedure is a significant advancement over traditional liposuction methods.

PAL involves the use of a specialized cannula, which is inserted through small incisions in the treatment area. This cannula is designed to vibrate at a rapid speed, effectively breaking down the stubborn fat cells for easier removal.

The power-assisted liposuction procedure is performed by a Boston Center for Plastic Surgery plastic surgeon who has extensive experience in performing liposuction and other body contouring procedures. Our surgeons are adept at using this advanced technology to precisely target and remove fat, sculpting a more defined and aesthetically pleasing body contour. Compared to traditional liposuction, PAL offers a faster recovery time and less bruising and swelling.

Renuvion for Skin Tightening

In addition to the power-assisted liposuction (PAL) procedure, Boston Center for Plastic Surgery uses Renuvion for skin tightening, a cutting-edge technology that complements the fat removal process. This innovative technique is particularly beneficial for patients who have experienced a loss of skin elasticity due to age, weight fluctuations, or genetics.

Renuvion works by delivering a combination of helium plasma and radiofrequency energy beneath the skin. This dual-action process causes the collagen fibers within the skin to contract, resulting in a tightening effect that enhances the body contouring results of the liposuction procedure. This is particularly beneficial in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks, where skin laxity can often be a concern.

4. Comprehensive Treatment Areas

At Boston Center for Plastic Surgery, we strive to cater to a wide range of aesthetic needs and body contouring goals. We offer liposuction for various areas of the body.


Excess fat located in the neck and chin area can contribute to the unwanted appearance of a double chin. In many cases, this can be extremely difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise alone. Our surgeons can perform liposuction to remove this unwanted fat, creating a more defined and youthful-looking neck and chin profile.


The arms are another common area where stubborn fat can accumulate. Whether it’s the upper arms or the area near the armpits, our team can effectively remove these fat deposits using liposuction, resulting in more toned and slender arms.

Bra Rolls

Bra rolls, or the excess fat that bulges out around the bra line, make many women self-conscious and uncomfortable. Liposuction can be used to address this issue, allowing for a smoother and more streamlined torso.

Lower Back

Both men and women are prone to the accumulation of stubborn fat on the lower back. Liposuction can effectively reduce this fat, enhancing the natural curve of the back and waistline.


Also known as love handles, the flanks can be a challenging area to slim down. With liposuction, our surgeons can remove these stubborn fat deposits, sculpting a more defined waist and improving overall body proportions. 

Remember, the goal of liposuction is not just about having fat removed but about enhancing your overall body contours to achieve a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing physique. Our team at Boston Center for Plastic Surgery is committed to helping you reach your body contouring goals with the utmost care and precision.


The abdomen is a common area where fat tends to accumulate, often resulting in a protruding belly that can be resistant to diet and exercise. Our board-certified or board-eligible plastic surgeons at Boston Center for Plastic Surgery can perform liposuction to effectively remove this stubborn fat, helping to create a flatter, toned, and more defined abdominal area. 

Sides of Breasts

Excess fat on the sides of the breasts can create an unflattering silhouette, especially when wearing fitted clothing or swimwear. Liposuction can be used to address this issue, reducing the fat in this area and enhancing the natural contour of the breasts and chest wall. 


Whether it’s the inner thighs, outer thighs, or both, excess fat in these areas can cause discomfort and dissatisfaction with one’s body image. Liposuction can be an effective solution, reducing the fat in these areas and sculpting more proportionate and shapely thighs. 


For some individuals, stubborn fat in the calves can lead to a disproportionate lower body. With liposuction, our surgeons can remove this excess fat, resulting in slimmer and more toned calves that better align with your overall body proportions.

5. Artistic Approach for Ideal Body Contours

At Boston Center for Plastic Surgery, liposuction is not just a medical procedure but also an art form. Our surgeons don’t just remove fat; they sculpt it away selectively and strategically, enhancing your natural body contours and highlighting your unique physique.

We take into account your body’s natural lines and curves, as well as your personal aesthetic goals, to create a result that is not only slimming but also harmonious and balanced. 

If you are looking to refine your waistline, enhance your curves, or achieve a more toned and fit appearance, our team at Boston Center for Plastic Surgery is committed to helping you meet your body contouring goals – safely and comfortably. We invite you to schedule a consultation to discuss your treatment options and to learn more about how liposuction can help you attain your ideal body shape.
