Sculpt your Body
Some areas of the body are extremely resistant to fat reduction and muscle toning despite a person’s most valiant efforts with diet and exercise. Localized fat deposits on the flanks, hips abdomen, neck, upper arms, back, and buttocks are cumbersome for both men and women who are overweight and even those who maintain a healthy weight. Dr. Perez-Gurri and Dr. Garcia perform various liposuction techniques at their facility in Miami, that target these stubborn areas to sculpt the body into a more aesthetically pleasing shape.
Patients typically plan to take up to one week off from work to recover from liposuction. A compression garment should be worn in the weeks following surgery as the body conforms to its new contours. Most of the swelling will subside completely after two months, and the results will be noticeable. Most patients are cleared for regular exercise after four to six weeks
Only small scars will result from liposuction since only a few small incisions are made in the area(s) chosen for fat reduction. Scars are less than an inch in length and will fade significantly with time.
The cost of your liposuction will depend on the type of breast implants, surgery plan, doctor’s experience, and geographic location. Schedule a free consultation to receive a quote.
Patients will be completely asleep during the procedure under general anesthesia. After surgery, patients may experience some pain or discomfort that can be managed by prescription pain medication. Compression garments will also help to reduce pain and swelling.

Dr. Perez-Gurri and Dr. Garcia use power-assisted liposuction and VASERlipo®. Power-assisted liposuction uses tiny, rapid vibrations to break up fat, which results in increased safety, better results, and a shorter recovery than traditional liposuction. VASERlipo® uses ultrasound technology to reduce fat and assist with the contracture of the overlying skin to produce a firmer result. Dr. Garcia does the national and international training for VASERlipo® and is highly skilled in this liposuction technique.
Patients will usually lose several inches from the area treated with liposuction along with a firmer appearance. The body continues to heal, and the skin conforms to the new contours to reveal the final results after about approximately three months.
The goal of liposuction is to reduce localized fat deposits. Since no skin is removed during the procedure, liposuction may actually worsen the appearance of sagging skin. Body lifting procedures such as the arm lift, tummy tuck, or thigh lift will reduce excess skin and can be performed in conjunction with liposuction.
Liposuction is not a procedure for weight loss. Most patients lose some pounds, but this will depend on the areas chosen and the extent of fat removed.
“Cellulite” refers to irregularities that occurred on the surface of the skin. Liposuction will not cure cellulite; it will remove fat and reduce contour. Patients with severe cases of cellulite will not benefit from liposuction surgery and may require skin excision (for example tummy tuck or thigh lifting) to achieve their desired results.
