Certain problem areas are notoriously difficult to target with diet and exercise alone. If you’ve been unable to get the results you want at the gym, Dr. Larson's approach to body contouring for each patient makes him one of the leaders in performing liposuction Tucson has to offer.

What is Liposuction?

Having an attractive figure is not just a matter of how much someone weighs; it is also how those pounds are distributed across your frame. Many people spend years dieting and hours every week in the gym, working to achieve their ideal profile, all to no avail. Stubborn, excess fat deposits stay where they are, leading to frustration and disappointment.

What Areas Of The Body Can Be Treated?

Liposuction can deliver slimming and contouring benefits to virtually any area of the body. Some of the most common treatment areas among our Tucson clients include:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Breast

While liposuction is most commonly use to sculpt these body areas, other areas that are regularly treated are:

  • Upper Arms
  • Calves
  • Ankles
  • Neck

Abdomen

The midsection is a problem area for many women – especially after weight fluctuations, pregnancy or a C-section. Once belly flab becomes loose and droopy, it can be almost impossible to tone the area with exercise. Liposuction with Dr. Larson can easily remove the excess belly fat and restore a flat and fit appearance.

The Hips

Excess fat on the hips can create an unbalanced figure – especially when the rest of your body is smooth and contoured. Because this area is so difficult to tone with exercise, liposuction is a highly effective way to get the look you want.

The Thighs

The thighs are another common request among our patients. Although we can’t reduce the overall circumference with liposuction, we can remove small pockets of fat from the inner and outer thighs to produce a slimmer look. If you also have excess skin in the area, Dr. Larson may recommend a simultaneous thigh lift as well.


The Buttocks

When performing liposuction on the buttocks, Dr. Larson uses a micro-cannula to subtly reshape the area. This ensures that he doesn’t remove too much fat – which would result in a flat, asymmetrical or sagging appearance.

The Arms

The arms are difficult for many women and men to tone. Liposuction can target unwanted flab in this area – revealing slim and sculpted arms.

The Chin

Excess fat in the chin can detract from the graceful lines of your face. Removal of this fat can result in a more chiseled and refined jawline.


Are you a candidate?

Liposuction is a time-proven procedure that has helped countless Tucson men and women achieve their ideal bodies. However, it’s not right for every patient. If you have a large amount of fat to lose – or you are suffering from sagging skin as well – another procedure, such as a lift, may be necessary.

Your Surgical Options

Dr. Larson strives to deliver the best liposuction experience available. As such, he offers three main types of liposuction Tucson patients can choose from: tumescent, ultrasonic and laser. Depending on the size of the treatment area and the type of liposuction you choose, your procedure can be done under local or general anesthesia.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Larson will personally help you determine which one is in your best interest. Here is an overview of your options:

Liposuction Tucson

Tumescent

Tumescent liposuction is a terrific approach that is associated with minimal complications and highly effective fat removal.

It involves injecting a solution composed of salt water and anesthesia to swell the fat cells, which makes them easier to remove. From there, he will create a small incision and insert a cannula that is attached to a suction pump to gently break up and remove unwanted fat.

Ultrasonic

With ultrasonic liposuction, the cannula used to break up and remove unwanted fat employs ultrasonic sound waves to liquefy the excess fat cells so that they are easier to target.

With this approach, Dr. Larson can remove large pockets of fat, while also firming the surrounding skin – something tumescent liposuction cannot accomplish.

Laser

Laser liposuction is the latest approach to this time-proven procedure.

Ideal for small, sensitive areas and very minimal fat removal, laser liposuction is highly effective and associated with less discomfort and recovery time when compared to the tumescent and ultrasonic approaches.

Liposuction and skin: What's the story?

Removing the fat with liposuction does not tighten skin. One critical step in determining what procedure will lead to the sculpted body you envision is to evaluate the degree of skin laxity. If you have very lax skin, a surgical procedure may be the appropriate way to resculpt your body, such as a tummy tuck or body lift, or a non-surgical skin tightening procedure in addition to liposuction.

What is the cost of liposuction?

The cost will depend on the area being treated and the amount of fat being removed. The liposuction treatment as a single procedure typically ranges from $4000 to $7000. Dr. Larson's skill and precision in the liposuction treatment as well as the comfort he provides for his patients makes these costs very worthwhile.

Lipedema Treatment + Dercum's Disease Treatment

For some Tucson women, even weight loss doesn’t help their figures – they have perpetually large legs, trunks or arms. Many of them are ultimately diagnosed with lipedema or Dercum’s disease – two complex disorders that are associated with an abnormal accumulation of fat cells, which produces a disproportionate appearance.

Dr. Larson is highly skilled in lipedema treatment and Dercum’s disease treatment in Tucson via liposuction. He will strategically remove the diseased fat in a way that restores balance to your entire body.
