Even with a strict diet and exercise routine, some women and men discover certain areas of the body that seem to be resistant to change. To help reduce these stubborn pockets of fat and create a more toned silhouette, liposuction has been an excellent option for many of our patients at Advanced Aesthetic Surgery. This procedure is ideal for reducing fat in areas of the body such as the abdomen, flanks, (muffin top), thighs, back, and arms. Liposuction can also be used in the chin and jowl area to create a more defined jawline.
Am I a Candidate?
Ideal liposuction candidates should be in good overall health and close to their desired weight. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure — rather, it is intended to help individuals supplement their diet and exercise efforts. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle after the procedure is important, as well, since it is possible for patients to gain weight again after the procedure. If you are not a candidate for this procedure, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Lintner will work with you to help you find an appropriate alternative treatment. Helping each patient achieve the best possible results while avoiding any unnecessary procedures is extremely important to Dr. Lintner, so if he feels liposuction is not the best way to accomplish your unique aesthetic goals, he will advise against it. In some cases, patients who have lost a significant amount of weight may also benefit from an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) or other body contouring procedures to help remove excess skin that can occur after weight loss.
I had found Dr. Lintner online and met with several other surgeons. As soon as I met him, I knew he was the right doctor. He really cares about his patients…I absolutely love my results.

Benefits of Liposuction
With liposuction, many of our patients have been able to reduce or eliminate fat in problem areas. Some additional benefits of liposuction can include:
- Highlighting weight loss efforts by improving definition
- Long-lasting results
- More toned, athletic appearance
- Can be combined with other procedures for improved results
Following liposuction, patients who continue living a healthy lifestyle should be able to retain their results. To find out if liposuction is right for you, please contact us today to learn more, or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lintner.
After liposuction, patients may experience a small amount of swelling and/or bruising in the targeted areas, but this should fade over time. Dr. Lintner provides each patient with personalized aftercare instructions to ensure they achieve the best possible results. Any discomfort after surgery can typically be managed with medication, when used as instructed by Dr. Lintner. Most liposuction patients are able to return to their daily routines approximately one week after surgery, although strenuous activities should usually be avoided for about two weeks.
