What is liposuction?

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.

What are the benefits of liposuction?

Liposuction has a number of benefits for patients who are looking to achieve a more sculpted figure.

  • Reshapes and contours your figure
  • Long-lasting results
  • Can be used on the neck, thighs, hips, chest, buttocks, abdomen or back
  • Very minimal scarring
  • Improves the fit of clothing
  • More than 90% client satisfaction rate
  • Provides a boost in confidence

Am I Candidate for Liposuction in Denver at La Fontaine Aesthetics?

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.

Types of Liposuction

  • Laser Liposuction: With this liposuction system, a laser fiber is employed to direct the light energy just beneath the skin’s surface. The results are remarkable; collagen fibers tighten, leaving skin smoother, firmer, and more attractive.
  • Tickle® Liposuction: Rather than the earlier traditional liposuction procedures, the Tickle system uses a far lower energy level, producing a vibration to gently loosen the fatty tissue lodged in various body areas. The fat removal with this system is less traumatic for the body and produces fewer side effects such as bruising. You may be interested in the Tickle system to finally be free from fat lingering at the waist and abdomen – “love handles” or a “muffin top.”
  • AquaShape by BodyJet®: As its name implies, this advanced liposuction treatment uses water. This process is often used to extract fat from the body where there is an excess and use the gently extracted fat cells for natural fat transfer.
  • Traditional Klein Micro-cannula technique: Dr. Klein in California invented the “tumescent’ liposuction technique which uses only local anesthesia and microcannulas, which makes liposuction very safe and almost painless. Dr. Oleszek trained under Dr. Klein and employs his methods to treat small to medium areas of unwanted fat.
  • Advanced Skin Tightening: Often after removal of the fat with liposuction, the skin will not retract to give a smooth to tightened appearance. To optimize the retraction and tightening of the skin, we perform ThermTight® or Renuvion® skin tightening are commonly used immediately after liposuction to optimize the retraction and tightening of skin.
  • Advanced for Muscle Toning: After liposuction, we offer EMSCULPT® treatments to strengthen and firm the abdominal core to enhance a shapely figure.

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:

  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Upper arms
  • Chin
  • Neck

What can I expect from my liposuction procedure?

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.

What is recovery like after liposuction?

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.

  • For Laser Lipo and traditional Klein technique: The typical recovery time is about 48 hours, during which you may experience some soreness, bruising and swelling which quickly fades.
  • For Tickle® Liposuction: As we don’t use general anesthesia, recovery time is brief and not difficult to experience. Typically, patients feel well enough to get back to their usual lives after only a few days.
  • For AquaShape®: This water-assisted liposuction system is minimally invasive, minimal risk, and very little downtime. This system has the benefit of dramatically decreasing the risk of bruising, swelling, or bleeding. The beauty of AquaShape is that the fat is gently harvested, and often then purified and used to enhance another area of the face or body, such as the breasts or the butt.

I can’t rave enough about LaFontaine, Dr. Ken, and his amazing staff! I was a bit hesitant at first when even considering liposuction but after a great consultation with Dr. Ken and what I think was a very reasonable price, I decided to go for it. I am so glad I did! Not only is his staff incredible (so kind and welcoming, not to mention always found appointments very fast and conveniently for me) but Dr. Ken takes his time to answer questions honestly, reassure you, and does a fantastic job! Truly above and beyond service.

Can Liposuction Handle a Double Chin?

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.

FAQ Liposuction

Does liposuction tighten loose skin?

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.

Will fat return after liposuction?

You can still gain weight in the future in the treated area, but once fat cells are removed during liposuction, they are gone forever!

Can liposuction get rid of my cellulite?

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.
