Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where can I see a list of monthly specials?
    • You can see our list of monthly specials at 
  • I have a stomach pouch; can I have Liposuction on my lower abdomen to eliminate it?
    • Everyone can have liposuction on any part of their body where there is fat. Although it all depends on each person and their skin elasticity. We would also have to see if the person has intra-abdominal fat, some people believe that they have fat outside the muscle when in reality they have fat inside the muscle. The fat inside the muscle cannot be removed with liposuction, only with diet and exercise.
  • Is it normal for my stomach to swell up after having liposuction on my flanks and love handles?
    • Yes, swelling is normal after six months of having any liposuction procedure. Whether it is smart lipo, traditional, or laser liposuction, it is completely normal to feel swollen in the next couple of months. Usually the first month is the worse, when you have the most liquid retention. This is why we advise our patients to have lymphatic massages performed, which will help drain the liquid out. Taking natural remedies such as pineapple juice and a lot of liquids will also help with the inflammation. Using your garment on a daily basis will also reduce the swelling.
  • Is it possible to get liposuction performed on someone with loose skin?
    • Liposuction can be performed on loose skin, but the patient would need to understand that liposuction is not a procedure to tighten the skin. There are certain devices and treatments to help get better skin retraction. When comparing laser liposuction versus power assisted liposuction you get better skin tightening results. The post-operative care is also very important for skin tightening, if you use your garment for long periods of time, you will obtain better results and skin retraction. Radio Frequency and Post Lymphatic massages can also be useful after liposuction, this procedure helps tighten the skin. Liposuction is not a method used for skin retraction, but we do offer a lot of treatments that will help with loose skin after having done liposuction. 
  • Can you perform a Brazilian Butt Lift on a patient who is still breastfeeding?
    • In general, the patient cannot obtain any type of anesthesia if she is breastfeeding, because that anesthesia will go through the breast milk and affect the baby. It is toxic to the baby. Any surgeon that is willing to do liposuction while the patient is still breastfeeding is being negligent. 
  • If I start working out, will I lose the fat that was transferred to my gluteus easily?
    • Yes, if you start exercising and lose weight, the fat that you had transferred will disappear because it is still natural fat. For example, if you gain weight you are going to gain weight in that area where you have more fat deposits. Whereas, if you lose weight you are going to lose volume in the area where the fat was transferred. Our advice would be, after having a fat transfer procedure the patient should remain the same weight. The patient should weigh themselves every week in order to maintain the same shape. 
  • If I am sitting for a long time, for example if I work at a desk and then go home to sit down some more, can my butt get smaller?
    • Our recommendation after surgery is not to sit at all for one week and then after that week the patient should sit with support for another two weeks. In our experience, patient obtains 70 to 80% of the fat, although there are some cases when people lose a lot of volume but that is only 1 or 2% of the cases. 
  • Do you have to be a certain age to get liposuction?
    • There is no certain age in which a person can obtain a liposuction procedure, although if you are a minor you would need permission from your parents. We do however recommend to obtain a liposuction procedure once the body has fully developed. We prefer to perform Liposuction on patients who are older than 18 years old. We have performed Liposuction on patients that are up to 80 years old, as long as the patient is healthy and there are no contra-indications the patient can have a lipo procedure from 18 without parents’ permission up to 100 years if you are healthy. 
  • Will Liposuction be an issue for me in the future if I want to have kids?
    • Liposuction does not affect the patient in any way if she wants to have a baby after having the procedure done. As a matter of fact, we recommend obtaining liposuction done before pregnancy, because if you lose all the fat around your belly and in your body once you get pregnant, the patient will only retain baby weight not fat tissue weight. 
  • When can I have intimacy after my surgery?
    • A patient can have sex as soon as they feel comfortable. After surgery the patient will be sore, so which can cause some discomfort. What we do recommend is that if the patient engages in sexual activities, please be very careful. Some patients are known to wait at least a week before having intimacy again. 
  • When can I have another procedure after having had liposuction?
    • We recommend waiting at least four to six months, until the swelling goes down and the inflammation goes away. 
  • How long will I need to wear my compression garment for after surgery?
    • We recommend wearing your garment for six weeks straight, day and night 22 hours a day and only take it off when taking a shower. Y
