Having a slim, toned body is the goal for many people. However, traditional solutions for achieving this do not always work. One can lose weight, maintain healthy eating habits, engage in consistent exercise, and still find themselves unable to lose those last few inches of unwanted fat. The inability to remove stubborn pockets of fat from around the body can be discouraging to many people and may lead to feelings of self-consciousness and low confidence in their appearance. Liposuction can be an effective solution for people wishing to remove fat that is resistant to their efforts; this minimally invasive procedure helps people lose the last few inches of fat and define their body contours. Liposuction can also be combined with numerous other procedures to further support individual treatment goals.

What Liposuction Can Achieve


Common Liposuction Treatment Sites

The belly is one of the most common areas treated with liposuction. Many patients focus on the appearance of their belly and desire for it to look slim and toned. Liposuction of the abdomen can help in achieving a lean, sculpted midsection.

Liposuction of the abdomen is often paired with a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, to further contour the belly.

Removal of fat around the inner and outer thighs can correct a number of issues. Thighs that rub together can cause uncomfortable chafing, and liposuction can remedy that. This also helps create a more proportional gap between the legs in some patients, which can increase self-confidence about one’s appearance. Fat can also settle along the outer thighs, causing a disproportionate look to the body. Fat removal from this area can aid in better body proportions and help clothing to fit the lower body better.

Liposuction of the thighs can be combined with thighplasty to contour the skin to create thinner, more slender thighs.

The neck can develop extra fat due to aging or weight gain, and genetics can also play a role. This can give the appearance of a double chin. Liposuction can effectively remove these pockets of fat to provide you with a slender profile and more structured jawline.

If excess fat needs to be removed and the skin does not have the elasticity to reform to the new shape, liposuction can be combined with a neck lift to recontour the neckline.

A common place to develop pockets of fat is along the underside of the arms. This can create a flabby appearance, particularly in the upper arm, and make it difficult to find tops that fit well. Liposuction can be used to remove this excess fat and minimize the sagging of your arms.

Liposuction can also be paired with an arm lift, or brachioplasty, if there is excess skin that needs to be reformed around the smaller arm structure.

Many women develop excess fat within their underarms and below the shoulder along their back, which causes rolls when indented by their bra band. Liposuction can remove this excess fat to provide a smooth back and prevent bra bulges as well as bulges extending out from the underarms.



You will experience swelling and soreness immediately following your procedure. After undergoing liposuction, you will have to wear compression garments for at least six weeks to minimize swelling. Your ability to resume regular activities will depend on your individual procedure. You will begin to see results immediately, but they will not be fully visible due to swelling. It can take up to six months for your final results to become obvious.


Incisions used for liposuction are very small, and Dr. Boll is careful to hide them in easily concealed locations. During your consultation with Dr. Boll, she will explain the most appropriate locations for incisions. However, there is no guarantee that scars will not be visible, though if they are, they will likely fade over time.


Liposuction procedure costs will vary depending on multiple factors such as how many sites are being targeted and whether liposuction is done in conjunction with any other procedure. You will receive an estimate for your individualized procedure during your consultation appointment. There are also multiple options for financing and pre-payment available.


You will likely experience soreness after your procedure that can last up to a week or more. This will also depend on how many sites were targeted, how much fat was removed, and what other procedures were performed. You can treat this with pain medication as needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with liposuction. These include:

  • Swelling and bruising
  • Fluid Retention
  • Infection
  • Loss of sensation
  • Irregular pigmentation
  • Scarring
  • Rippling or loose skin

All risks will be discussed with you at your consultation with Dr. Boll.

Liposuction is the permanent removal of fat from your body. Those results will remain. However, should you gain any significant weight, new fat cells can accumulate in the areas previously targeted by your liposuction procedure. For this reason, you should be close to your ideal weight and continue to live a healthy lifestyle post-surgery.

Liposuction is not designed to be a weight loss tool; the purpose of liposuction is to remove pockets of fat that have proven resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. Boll targets specific, localized areas of fat to help shape and contour your body. It’s recommended that you be close to your ideal weight. In your consultation with Dr. Boll, she can determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction.

Compression garments aid in the recovery process by minimizing swelling after the procedure, which helps with your overall recovery. They also help your body maintain its new contour in the weeks immediately following the procedure. Dr. Boll will have you wear compression garments for about six weeks, but this will depend on the exact nature of your procedure.
