Liposuction Surgeon Directory

The Liposuction Surgeon Directory provides a resource for you to review the background and experience of board-certified plastic surgeons who perform liposuction surgery. During surgery, liposuction surgeons remove unwanted fat deposits under the skin. The best candidates for liposuction are those who are physically fit and have been unable to eliminate a fatty area through diet or exercise. Please note that this directory is not intended to be a complete list of all liposuction surgeons.

Choosing a Liposuction Surgeon

Choosing a liposuction surgeon is a very important step in the decision to have liposuction surgery. Many factors are important when making this decision. One of the most important factors is the liposuction surgeon's training and experience. Liposuction surgeons with the most training are the board-certified plastic surgeons who are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Use the surgeon profiles in the Liposuction Surgeon Directory to contact surgeons by email or telephone with your questions, and to arrange a personal plastic surgery consultation.

How Liposuction Surgeons Perform the Procedure

To perform liposuction, liposuction surgeons make small incisions in the area where fat is to be removed. The liposuction surgeon inserts a long hollow cannula, connected to a suction tube, into the incision and through the skin. The cannula is scraped along the underside of the skin where the fat deposits reside. The fat deposits are loosened by the scraping and are suctioned out by the liposuction surgeon. The most common form of the procedure performed by liposuction surgeons is tumescent liposuction.
