Types of Liposuction

Dr. Kofkoff offers three different types of liposuction:

  • Tumescent liposuction
  • Ultrasonic liposuction
  • Power assisted liposuction

Each of these advanced techniques is capable of producing remarkable results while minimizing surgical risks and recovery time, but none is ideal for every body. The best way to learn which of these options is right for your needs is by meeting with our Missouri liposuction surgeon to discuss your problem areas and aesthetic desires.

Dr. Kofkoff is a caring and experienced plastic surgeon who takes time to truly understand each individual’s needs and desires before suggesting those techniques best designed to produce the desired results.

Liposuction Candidates

The best candidates for liposuction are men and women who are close to their goal weight but need help with those last stubborn deposits of fat. If you are not close to your goal weigh, Dr. Kofkoff will recommend, for your safety, that you engage in weight loss prior to committing to liposuction.

In addition to being close to your goal weight, good candidates for liposuction should be:

  • Nonsmokers in generally good health
  • Able to take time off during a brief but limiting recovery period
  • Willing to follow all pre and postoperative instructions

Good liposuction candidates also need to have realistic expectation about the benefits and limitations of this procedure. These can be discussed in greater detail during your initial consultation.

If you have questions about liposuction or if you are ready to schedule a consultation, please call (800) 924-9482 today. Dr. Kofkoff serves all of Missouri from our conveniently located Chesterfield office.
