The advantage of modern liposuction techniques over earlier versions of the procedure are improved safety, better results and a faster recovery time. There have been many improvements since the beginning days of liposuction in Europe, about 50 years ago, and liposuction is now a safe and effective procedure when performed by trained surgeons treating the right candidates.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Elias Gikas has the experience and training required to provide the highest quality liposuction experience.

Some of the technique options available are tumescent and ultrasound-assisted liposuction. Both of these variations help break up the fat, making it easier to extract. This is why the recovery process is shortened and the results are often improved.
