Sculpt Your Dream Body with Liposuction

The pursuit of a well-contoured body is often filled with rigorous workouts and strict diet regimens. But for some, despite all the efforts, stubborn fat pockets tend to linger, resisting the hardest workouts or the strictest diets. This is where liposuction steps in to transform your body silhouette.

Liposuction, one of the most popular cosmetic procedures, is adeptly performed at the Cosmetic Surgery Center by the accomplished Dr. JoAnne Lopes. Our liposuction procedure focuses on removing excess fat deposits from specific areas of your body, enhancing your natural contours, and promoting a more balanced and proportional body figure.

Whether it’s your hips, buttocks, thighs, arms, or abdomen that’s causing concern, Dr. Lopes uses her surgical artistry to meticulously sculpt these areas, aiming for a result that complements your overall body structure. Her precise and patient-focused approach, combined with years of experience, ensures a smoother, more streamlined silhouette, boosting your confidence and helping you feel more at ease in your body.

At Cosmetic Surgery Center, your transformation journey is our priority. Let us help you unlock the door to a rejuvenated you through liposuction.


5 Benefits of Liposuction

Targeted Fat Reduction:

Liposuction allows for targeted removal of stubborn fat deposits that resist diet and exercise, providing you with a more toned and contoured physique.

Enhanced Body Proportions:

By selectively removing excess fat, liposuction can balance out disproportionate body areas, promoting a harmonious, well-proportioned figure.

Boosts Self-Confidence:

Achieving a body that you’re comfortable in can significantly enhance your self-esteem and body image, leading to increased confidence.

Permanent Fat Cell Removal:

The fat cells removed during liposuction are permanently eliminated. As long as you maintain a stable weight, your new, sleeker contour is here to stay.

Improved Health Associated with Fat Loss:

While not a substitute for overall weight loss, liposuction can contribute to health benefits associated with fat loss, such as reduced risk for certain diseases, improved mobility, and better physical comfort.

Our patients glow, and their reviews shine!

Answered all questions and discussed all options and likely outcomes before any treatments. I felt comfortable and in competent hands throughout! Did I mention it was my first time? Highly recommend Dr Lopes and staff. 🌞

I have had the best experience seeing Rachel for a number of things over the past couple of months. She has been attentive to every concern I have whether it’s knew or correcting something that wasn’t caused by her. She has a great way of meeting your expectations of a certain “look” or “feel” while also encompassing her professional opinion in a way that doesn’t undermine your own vision; this approach she takes melds her professional advise and your vision together to give you a result that’s better than you could have imagined. One of the best aspects about this approach is that her recommendations aren’t the ones that are the most expensive, but the ones that you actually need. I have been to offices that only recommended the highest cost solution and felt like I was just treated as another sale for their bottom line. The trust that I have developed with her is rare, and I will follow her wherever she goes for any filler, Botox, MOXY, laser, and other treatments I may want in the future. The rest of the staff however, are just as amazing. From the moment you walk in and are greeted by the front desk to the seeing the other staff in passing while you’re headed to your appointment room, you are welcomed in such a way it’s like seeing old friends. This is a wonderful establishment and highly recommended to anyone and everyone.

I had Sculptra done with Dr. Lopes and she is the best injector! I didn’t have any pain with the deep injections and I can tell that the Sculptra will work out great for my volume loss in my cheeks. And her office staff was so caring, Brook (her assistant)was very informative and super lovely and Rain made me feel so at home there. Thanks so much to you Dr. Lopes and your lovely staff!

Grab a drink, this is a long one! I have dealt with facial hair for almost all of my adult life and I almost almost 40. It was embarrassing to have someone stand close to me or touch my face because of the hair. Finally, I made the choice to get laser hair removal and found Cosmetic Surgery Center based on Google reviews! I requested an appointment online in December 2022 and received a phone call to finalize the appointment and understand what I was looking for. I arrived at my appointment and met Rachel. She gave me a price quote and treated my face and neck for the first time, that day. For about 8 months I have been getting the laser every 4-ish weeks. My neck has NEVER looked better! When I tell you it has changed my life, I am serious! It is the best investment and I have Rachel to thank for my new found confidence! Since the laser I have conquered my fears and got a new tattoo, a Brazilian wax and new brows. It has truly changed how I feel about myself. At first I was amazed that I didn't have to shave daily, now I go daysssss without a single hair and no makeup to cover my 5 o'clock shadow. I am pretty sure my face is now 95% hair free. There are a few stubborn hairs that won't die but compared to my full beard when I started, those don't even bother me. Rachel is nice, we have great convos and she is quick! She has also helped me remove a few pesky skin tags I had on my neck. She is truly a gem. I look forward to getting more treatments here. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!! Meghan T

I felt very compelled to write to your office this morning concerning the treatments that I received yesterday at your office. I was a patient of Dr. Hugo’s years ago and decided to change cosmetic surgery centers during a transition time. I started my treatments at McDaniels Surgery at that time and have been going there ever since. You ran a special a while back with Representatives of Dysport, so I decided to try this new Botox replacement at your office and had good results. I then made another appointment to come back to receive Dysport again on July 24, 2023 at 1pm. Your office called and actually stated that the young lady whom I was supposed to have an appointment with, was not working on Mondays. I stated my week was tight and could I get another technician for the same timeframe? They accommodated me immediately with Rachel Strehle. I hope I am spelling her name correctly, this was such a blessing in disguise. To my astonishment, she was amazing. She was super informative, professional and compassionate. I have to say, in all the years that I have received filler and botox, never has someone taken so much quality time and explained procedures in the way that she did. She listened to my concerns and gave me options to consider. To my surprise, I did not bruise at all, which is rarely the case. I have always come home with bruises and blood spots from these treatments in the past, so this was quite amazing. Not only did I not bruise, but my skin (face) looks the best it ever has after having treatments like these. Rachel Strehle is definitely a huge asset to the Cosmetic Surgery Center, and I plan to switch over completely. I couldn’t be more satisfied with my results, thank you.

Dr JoAnne Lopes and her staff are excellent. They listened to what I wanted and were responsive and answered all of my questions. They never made me feel pressured to have a particular treatment or procedure done. They were great at giving me realistic expectations regarding my recovery and post- op results. I had: facelift, neck lift, blepharoplasty ( bags under my eyes) and CO2 laser treatment. And what was so amazing I had no PAIN. I am sure everyone is different on pain but i had none. Thank you Dr Lopes again. Very please with my results.

On 4/7 I had a labiaplasty performed by Dr. Lopes and I could not be happier with the results and the whole experience with Dr. Lopes and her entire staff. Labiaplasty was not an option I was aware of until the past year and due to the sensitive nature I was a little embarrassed but Dr. Lopes and staff made me feel so comfortable and assured that it’s not as uncommon as I thought. The procedure its self was quick and painless and recovery a breeze. I am so thankful to Dr. Lopes and staff and highly recommend them for any cosmetic/plastic surgical needs.

Is Liposuction Right for You?

Deciding if liposuction is the right choice for you involves a thoughtful consideration of your physical health, mental wellbeing, and personal expectations. Ideal candidates for liposuction are generally those who maintain a stable weight but struggle with stubborn pockets of excess fat that persist despite diet and exercise efforts. Sound physical health is essential, as is mental stability and an optimistic, realistic perspective of the results.

Skin elasticity plays a crucial role in the success of a liposuction procedure. Firm, elastic skin is more likely to reshape effectively to your body’s new contours, ensuring a more pleasing final result. If you have loose, hanging skin, it may not adjust to the new contours and an additional procedure might be required to remove the excess skin, leaving visible scars.

Liposuction is not advised if you have had recent surgery on the target area, poor blood circulation in that area, or suffer from heart or lung disease. Remember, liposuction is not a solution for cellulite – the dimpled skin that sometimes appears on thighs, hips, and buttocks. There are, however, other methods that may improve this condition.

Post-procedure, anticipate some swelling and bruising, along with potential discomfort, which can be managed with medications. While the recovery process may take some time, with most swelling and discoloration dissipating within one to two months post-surgery, the results can be genuinely transformative. By maintaining a sensible diet and regular exercise routine, the newfound contour can be lasting. Many patients experience a newfound sense of confidence, ease in clothing choice, and overall satisfaction with their body shape.

In essence, liposuction could be an excellent choice for you if you are seeking a more sculpted body contour, possess good skin elasticity, are in good health, and have realistic expectations about the results. With these factors in place, you’ll be well on your way to enjoying a new, more comfortable shape that can bring with it a renewed sense of body confidence.
