Liposuction Has an Excellent Track Record

Most patients are concerned about safety, and at Grossman Plastic Surgery, we share your concerns. Our first priority is always your health and well-being.

Fortunately, liposuction is consistent with this philosophy. Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures in the world. Every year, hundreds of thousands of Americans undergo liposuction without experiencing complications.

Our doctors will make sure you’re a good candidate for the procedure and explain the possible risks. But you can be confident in both the safety of the procedure and the skill of our surgeons.

Liposuction is Not a Weight Loss Procedure

Some people operate under the misconception that they can use liposuction as a kind of shortcut to dramatic weight loss. However, this simply isn’t the case. And doctors who say they can use the procedure to help you lose weight are engaging in liposuction abuse.

In reality, the procedure is best suited for people who are at or near their ideal bodyweight. It’s a body contouring procedure that’s appropriate when you have stubborn deposits of fat that just won’t respond to diet and exercise.

Those who’ve recently lost a great deal of weight are usually excellent candidates for the procedure.

Technique Makes a Difference

At Grossman Plastic Surgery, we offer VASER® Liposuction to our Denver-area patients who are considering liposuction. This procedure incorporates ultrasound waves into the liposuction technique.

And this makes a significant difference. Traditional liposuction is safe and effective, but does cause a certain amount of bruising and tenderness. Ultrasonic liposuction won’t completely eliminate bruising, but by liquefying the fat cells before we remove them, we will greatly reduce both your bruising and your recovery time.
