What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction, also known as suction lipectomy, is an extremely popular procedure that targets stubborn pockets of fat that linger despite a healthy diet and exercise. These unsightly bulges give your body a disproportionate shape. Fortunately, liposuction can remove these fatty deposits, creating a slim, sleek silhouette. The areas on your body that are most likely to benefit from liposuction include the following:
- Inner and outer thighs

Miller, a board-certified plastic surgeon, welcomes men and women from in and around Biloxi, including Gulfport, Pascagoula, Hattiesburg, Long Beach, and Ocean Springs.
How Is Liposuction Performed?
Liposuction is usually performed under general anesthesia, and is an outpatient procedure. The surgery normally takes between one and two hours, depending on the areas being treated.
Once the anesthesia takes effect, a very small incision is made in the relevant area, and a thin hollow tube called a cannula is inserted to break up the fat and then remove it using suction. After the fat is extracted and the cannula is removed, the incision is stitched with dissolvable sutures and covered with a sterile dressing. A support garment will be applied.
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
Cosmetic surgery is a very personal decision so your suitability for a procedure will be determined by your individual characteristics and expectations. However, there are some criteria that the majority of liposuction patients have in common:
- Areas of fat that never go away, despite diet and exercise
- Lack of definition or a disproportionate figure
- Low self-esteem and self-confidence due to their shape
During your consultation at Apogee Plastic Surgery, Dr. Miller will help you make the right choice for your individual needs. His liposuction expertise has helped guide men and women from Biloxi, Gulfport, Pascagoula, Hattiesburg, Long Beach, Ocean Springs, and the surrounding Mississippi communities.
What Post-Operative Liposuction Care Can I Expect?
