Charlotte In-Office Liposuction

If your goal is to remove excess fat and improve the contour of your body without invasive surgery then an in-office liposuction procedure at Queen City Plastic Surgery may be your answer. This procedure, performed either individually or combined with other procedures such as BodyTite or Facetite, requires no general anesthesia and only a minimal incision. You can go home the same day and recover in the comfort of your own home.

Areas of Treatment for Spot Reduction

One key benefit of in-office liposuction is that it can be performed on not only larger areas (upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and back) but also on smaller areas, including your chin, neck, love handles, knees and ankles. The fat cells from these areas will be eliminated permanently so that the contours will be sculpted.

Benefits of in-Office Liposuction

  • Significantly lower potential for risk compared to more invasive surgeries
  • Less downtime due to the smaller incisions
  • Lower associated cost as Dr. Haque performs this procedure in the office in the South Charlotte area, near the Arboretum
  • Only local anesthesia is required

How does In-Office Liposuction work?  How is it different from CoolSculpt or SculpSure?

Dr. Haque will insert a hollow tube, called a cannula, through a small incision. From there, the targeted excess fat is loosened and the tissue is broken up prior to the vacuum suctioning out the excess fat. This gets rid of the undesired fat.

Other in-office procedures such as CoolSculpt or Sculpsure work differently and may require multiple visits.  Liposuction eliminates fat deposits in one step. When combining with BodyTite and/or Facetite, the skin will be tightened.  If you have been thinking about a procedure such as a tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, or chin lift but are nervous about surgery, this might be for you.  Over the long term, patients are happier and more satisfied with in-office liposuction.

Recovery from In-Office Liposuction

You will want someone to drive you home from the procedure, as the anesthetic is long-acting and you won’t be comfortable to drive.  Once you get home, make sure to take it easy and rest. Dr. Haque will see you in the office for a post-procedure follow-up visit and see how you are recovering.  

Depending on the area, Dr. Haque recommends a special compression garment to be worn to optimize the results. Most of the bruising and swelling resolves within few weeks.  Once that subsides, you will notice a smaller, tighter you!

In-Office Liposuction Results

Despite the initial swelling, patients will be able to recognize a noticeable difference in their body shape soon after the procedure. Patients get to experience the final contours and improved shape approximately three months post-procedure.
