Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure done to remove unwanted stubborn fatty tissue that has built up in areas of the body such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, and arms. During the procedure, a special cannula is inserted into the treatment area in order to physically suction out unwanted fat. Liposuction is among the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the U.S. in part because while a good diet and routine exercise are extremely important, they do not spot-reduce fat in specific areas of the body.
Liposuction has a number of benefits for patients who are looking to achieve a more sculpted figure.
Every patient has a different vision about what they hope to achieve. At La Fontaine med spa in Denver, we go above and beyond to create a treatment plan to help them achieve their personal vision. We listen, we care, and we offer a wide array of body sculpting treatments to match the needs of the individual patient. For some, liposuction will be the most effective method to remove quantities of excess fat, or as a process to harvest fat as a natural dermal filler.
You can expect a comfortable experience performed at our luxury private clinic in Denver. As the premier non-surgical face and body enhancement clinic in Denver, we have years of experience and an artistic approach to every procedure. If you struggle with excess fat and dream of a slimmer, trimmer body, our Denver liposuction treatment may be right for you.
It is no secret that the condition of the body impacts confidence. If you are one of the countless people living with excess fat that embarrasses you, our team at La Fontaine can help. Our approach to body shaping includes a range of options, including state-of-the-art liposuction systems that produce a smoother, firmer look and require less recovery than traditional liposuction. We want you to feel empowered and confident, knowing you look and feel your best. No more hiding the bulges under loose clothing or avoiding certain activities – wear what you want, looking great.
If you are plagued by little bulges here and there, our Denver liposuction treatments can resolve the problem. The body areas that can be successfully treated with our modern systems include:
Each type of liposuction treatment we offer has a slightly different experience, but each of them were chosen to be fast, effective, and have a shorter recovery time. All liposuction procedures are performed under local anesthesia – we do not use general anesthesia as it is not necessary and poses more risk to the patient. After treatment, you are free to walk out of the office, with the risk of side effects or pain greatly reduced. The use of local anesthetic is also more affordable, and you can trust us to use advanced systems that create far smoother, more attractive results. Our treatments are performed by our award-winning, board-certified physician, Dr. Ken Oleszek, MD – with a dedication to patient health and safety. We care about creating exceptional results, and a positive patient experience.
It is not uncommon to experience some swelling and discomfort for three to four days following surgery. Any discomfort is easily managed with over the counter pain medication, and most patients who have a treatment on a Friday feel ready to return to work or other activities by Monday. Take the time to rest and recover.
If you are tired of seeing a double chin, you may be a candidate for liposuction to gently remove the fat and restore a more defined jaw and neck profile. We use a gentle treatment to remove excess fat from the chin and upper neck. We may advise you to have an additional treatment to tighten and firm your skin, depending upon skin firmness and flexibility.

Some of our patients have fatty areas on the back or “bra fat” they want to trim and slim. We offer gentle liposuction, as well as CoolSculpting, and the Vanquish system that heats and kills fat cells. At La Fontaine, we offer a range of systems for long-lasting fat removal for the upper or lower back. Ready to look trimmer, slimmer, and more attractive? Our range of treatment options make it possible to significantly improve your body shape. We want you to look and feel at your best.
The cost of liposuction will depend on the amount of fat being extracted and the treatment area. The average cost of liposuction is $3,500 and can go up to $10,000.
Unfortunately liposuction doesn’t tighten skin. For patients with good skin elasticity having only small pockets of fat removed, this may not be a problem, while for others having treatment over a wider area, we may need to curate a personal skin tightening treatment plan based on their skin quality and elasticity.
You can still gain weight in the future in the treated area, but once fat cells are removed during liposuction, they are gone forever!
No, and in fact, it may make cellulite dimpling more obvious. Liposuction is very effective at removing unwanted fat, but treating cellulite isn’t its forte.
