Liposuction Before and After*

Liposuction before and after pictures show the transformative fat reduction results possible with this procedure. As with most cosmetic procedures, results may vary.*  However, optimal outcomes depend on the patient being a good candidate for the procedure. The expertise and knowledge of the surgeon impact patient results. Other factors that impact the results are the specific techniques and technologies used during the procedure. Patients need to select a reputable surgeon like Dr. Bowen to ensure they receive optimal, dramatic fat reduction before and after results.

How Does Liposuction Work?

There are a variety of liposuction procedures, such as laser-assisted liposuction (“laser lipo,” or “liposuction laser”) and power-assisted liposuction (PAL). During a consultation with Dr. Bowen, you can discuss the different lipo approaches.  Dr. Bowen will use the technique that is best suited for your body. Despite the difference in procedures, all liposuction techniques follow the same basic principles.

Liposuction contours the body by removing excess fat. The fat is removed during surgery through a thin, hollow tube inserted in the body through small incisions. The tube is a cannula. This cannula breaks up the fat and suctions it out of the body. 

Less Invasive Liposuction

Dr. Bowen utilizes the most modern technology and techniques to make liposuction safer and more effective for each patient. PureLipo BodySculpting is a type of tumescent liposuction performed in the office with no general anesthesia and minimal downtime. PureLipo is an innovative minimally-invasive technique that sculpts and contours the body. Dr. Bowen is the first physician in West Virginia to offer the PureLipo procedure.  He has successfully treated over 500 satisfied patients.

Treatment Areas

Lipo generally targets any deposits of excess fat. 

In Dr. Bowen’s practice, we define LIPO AREAS as:

  • Upper abdomen
  • Lower abdomen
  • Upper back/ “bra fat”
  • Lower back/ “flanks” or “love handles”
  • The neck and chin area
  • Inner knee
  • Both arms
  • Both inner thighs
  • Both outer thighs
  • The chest – a popular treatment area for men struggling with “man boobs”

Liposuction FAQS

In Dr. Bowen’s practice, liposuction is priced BY THE AREA.  

The first area of lipo is $3750, and each additional area treated in the same surgery session is $1500.  A maximum of 3-4 areas can be treated at one time.  

Other costs associated with liposuction surgery include:

  • Cost of prescription medications used for surgery (what’s not covered by your medical insurance), 
  • Cost of surgical garment(s) (e.g., compression garment, abdominal binder, chin strap),
  • Cost of blood work required pre-surgical clearance (what’s not covered by your medical insurance).  
  • Cost of J Plasma sub-dermal skin tightening, as applicable. 

To determine your lipo cost, schedule a consultation with Dr. Bowen.  After a physical assessment, you will know how many areas will need to be treated with liposuction to get the result you are looking for.  

 A $1000 deposit is required to book your date on the Surgery Calendar, and your balance is due at your Pre-Surgical Visit with Dr. Bowen, approximately two weeks before your Surgery Date.  Our Patient Care Coordinator, Angela, will be available to go over your financing options and ways to save on your liposuction procedure.

No, liposuction is not meant to help with weight loss. Lipoplasty is a body contouring procedure. It is not a weight-loss treatment and does not treat obesity. Optimal lipo results occur for patients who are at a stable weight but still struggle with diet or exercise resistant fat.

With the aid of tumescent fluid, which contains lidocaine for pain and epinephrine to reduce bleeding, no general anesthesia is required. During your consultation with Dr. Bowen, you can discuss anesthesia options, and which one is suitable for your liposuction method.

Your liposuction recovery depends on your specific cooperation. Most patients can expect some temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, and tenderness in the treatment area. Patients receive a compression garment to wear afterward to reduce swelling. Strenuous activity should be limited for several weeks after surgery. However, most patients can return to work within several days of their liposuction procedure, depending on their specific situation.

As with any cosmetic procedure, individual experiences will vary.* Swelling subsides within several weeks. For some patients, swelling can take up to several months to completely subside. Unlike weight loss treatments, which reduce the fat cells’ size, liposuction removes the fat cells entirely from the body. Once those cells are gone, they can never grow back. Lipo provides patients with lasting fat reduction. However, it is recommended that patients follow a healthy diet and exercise after surgery to maintain their results. If you gain weight after your lipo, you will gain it in your new shape.
