Liposuction eliminates stubborn fat from areas that are difficult to target with diet and exercise. This surgical procedure removes localized fat with a thin hollow tube (cannula) inserted through several tiny incisions in the skin. The cannula is connected to a vacuum device that removes the excess fat with a suctioning technique, and the result is more slender and attractive body contours.


What Can Liposuction Do for Me?

  • Fit Into Clothing Better

    Have you ever found the top you were looking for only to discover that after you try it on, your abdomen noticeably protrudes? Or maybe a pair of jeans fits you perfectly in the hips but bulges above the waistband. Liposuction eliminates fat from problem areas so you can fit into clothing better and have a wider variety of options that flatter your figure. After liposuction, you can actually enjoy going shopping for new clothes or even looking through your closet knowing that your clothes will adorn your body in a more fetching way.

  • Take the Stress Off

    Carrying extra weight can put stress on certain parts of the body, such as the back, knees, and hips. Although liposuction should not be looked at as a form of weight loss and does not result in a dramatic reduction in weight, the excess fat can be enough to make a difference when it comes to straining your body. Liposuction can result in a small amount of weight reduction and may encourage patients to continue with a healthy lifestyle that allows them to lose more weight and take even more stress off their bodies.

  • Be More Confident

    You may have struggled for several months or even years to eliminate stubborn fat to no avail, and these enduring bulges may cause you to be self-conscious about your appearance. After liposuction, you will feel happy knowing you look good, which will help make you feel more comfortable in your own skin and give you the confidence you deserve.

What Areas Can Liposuction Treat?

Dr. Chiu is among the best plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. He will evaluate your concerns and body type to determine the best options to achieve your fat reduction goals.



Liposuction creates a flatter abdomen and a more slender waist to eliminate “love handles” or a “muffin top” and achieve the desirable hourglass shape.


Almost any part of the thigh can be treated with liposuction, including just above the knee, under the butt (also known as the “banana roll”), the outer thighs, and the inner thighs to create the coveted “thigh gap.”


Liposuction can remove those stubborn pockets of fat on the outside of the hips known as “saddle bags” to produce a more slender shape and silhouette.


By removing fat from certain areas, liposuction creates a more uplifted, round buttocks shape. The fat can also be injected into other areas of the buttocks for further enhancement, if desired.


Liposuction creates more toned arms so you can wave goodbye to arm flab that swings back and forth.


Liposuction can eliminate a double chin or drooping neck fat that can make you appear misleadingly overweight and beyond your years.


Fat in the upper back that bulges out from bra bands can be smoothed, and men who suffer from excess fat in the breasts can achieve the firm chest they desire with liposuction.


Liposuction can remove fat from other difficult areas you might not have thought of, such as the knees, calves, ankles, and many other areas that are difficult to target with diet and exercise.

What Techniques Are Used During Liposuction?
During your consultation, Dr. Chiu will determine the best technique for your individual needs based on a variety of factors, including the treatment area and the amount of fat to be removed.

Liposuction FAQs

How much weight will be lost with liposuction?

A common misconception of liposuction is that it is a form of weight loss. It is designed to remove localized fat that has been unresponsive to diet and exercise or that has been genetically predisposed to accumulate in a specific area. Patients should be as close to their ideal weight as possible before undergoing the procedure.

Are the results of liposuction permanent?

The fat cells that have been removed with liposuction are permanently eliminated from the body; they will not grow back. However, the remaining fat cells may increase in size if weight is gained, which may distort the results of liposuction. To maintain optimum results, patients should follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Dr. Chiu and his friendly staff are available to advise a healthy regimen to ensure your long-term success.

Why should I get liposuction?

After liposuction, you will likely be able to fit into clothing better, feel more confident throughout your daily routine, and take the stress off certain parts of the body. Many patients experience a boost in self-confidence and comfort with their more slender physique after liposuction.

How much does liposuction cost?

The average cost of the surgeon’s fee for liposuction treatment is $3,518 per area. The cost of your liposuction treatment will depend on the size of the treatment area and the techniques used for your procedure.
