Liposuction

For a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon who specializes in liposuction, choose Dr. Hunter Moyer. He is a board certified plastic surgeon who has participated in extensive cosmetic and reconstructive training at Emory University. When it comes to reshaping your body and removing unsightly areas of fat, Dr. Moyer is your leading choice. During body plastic surgery procedures, he uses the latest, most effective techniques with patient comfort and safety in mind.

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure to remove fat deposits that lie between the skin and muscle. Liposuction can address various areas of the body; the most common being the abdomen, thighs, flanks, and chin. After determining appropriate treatment site(s), Dr. Moyer makes very small incisions (less than ½”) to insert a small hollow tube, known as a cannula, to remove fat cells through a suctioning process.

Dr. Moyer uses various liposuction techniques that involve different auxiliary fat removal methods to address your specific areas of concern:

Tumescent Liposuction

This type of liposuction injects a special tumescent fluid to decrease pain and bleeding by causing fat cells to swell for easier removal. This method reduces bleeding since local anesthesia in the injected fluid minimizes blood loss.

Body Jet Liposuction (water-assisted)

Body Jet liposuction is performed using injections of sterile water and tumescent fluid to loosen undesired fat for removal. It uses a closed system design that withdraws fat that can later be used in fat transfers for other augmentation procedures like “Brazilian Butt Lift”.

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction

Ultrasonic energy is externally applied to loosen fat cells, leaving skin and tissue unharmed. The sound energy liquefies the fat for easier removal, and if performed correctly, the additional energy can tighten the overlying skin.

If you have areas on your body, including the stomach, buttocks or thighs, that need to be contoured and shaped to produce a more attractive appearance, we invite you to discuss liposuction with Dr. Moyer of Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C. The best-suited candidates for liposuction are patients who are in good physical and mental health and who wish to treat areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
