As a general rule liposuction will not help our Phoenix-area patients with loose skin. It is limited to removing small pockets of fat.

In a few cases removing fat cells from certain parts of your body will tighten up skin in the treatment area, if the skin has good elasticity and is not stretched out. However, this is an unusual result and you should not expect liposuction to treat any problems with loose skin you might have.

Fortunately, our surgeons does offer procedures to treat loose skin. If you’re concerned about the skin around your abdomen a tummy tuck might be right for you. In some cases, a tummy tuck combined with liposuction provides optimal results.

If you are dissatisfied with hanging skin around your face and jaw line, a face lift is an excellent way of tightening loose, wrinkled skin on the face.

Our surgeons can help your body more accurately reflect the effort you’ve put into maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

If you have questions about liposuction and what it can do for you, we’ll be happy to answer them at a consultation where we will discuss the procedure. Some of our patients wonder whether liposuction can be used to treat loose skin.
