What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a viable option for patients who, after diet and exercise, still experience dissatisfaction with extra deposits of fatty tissue in certain parts of their body. Excess fat can be a result of poor weight management, but it can also be hereditary. Patients choose liposuction to enhance their body shape or to continue with healthy efforts.

White fat tends to be stubborn, making it difficult to burn off with diet and exercise. Liposuction is a great solution for those who are in good physical shape and healthy and are looking to get rid of that stubborn fat.

If maintained, the results of liposuction can be life changing and beneficial to those who undergo the procedure.

Types of Liposuction We Perform

Dr. Quinn and his staff are specialized to perform many types of liposuction. During your consultation, Dr. Quinn will examine your case and decide which method best matches with your health and needs. Some of the most common types of liposuction we perform include:

Suction Assisted

In this approach, small incisions are made in the area being treated, and a small tube is inserted into the opening and extracts the fat out of the area, leaving a precise fat removal result.

Ultrasonic Assisted

During this type of liposuction, a small device is attached to a hollow tube, causing the tube to vibrate and liquify the fat prior to it being suctioned.

Regardless of which approach is best for you, Quinn Plastic Surgery is ready to help you achieve your goals. Every case is treated individually and choosing a method can depend on multiple factors including body type, medical history, the amount of liposuction you need, and your expectations with this procedure.

Liposuction can be treated to burn fat in multiple areas, such as:

  • Abdominal Area

Some areas may require different types of liposuction treatments. Schedule a consultation today, so that we may help you understand which treatment goes best with your desired area.

Ideal Candidates

Contrary to popular belief, the ideal candidate for liposuction is actually in good health and of moderate weight. This is mainly for patients who exercise regularly and eat healthily, but can’t seem to rid themselves of excess fat that remains lingering. The skin should be elastic as it should close back once the treatment is finished.

Liposuction is a treatment that only goes as far as you take it, so not already being in good health and physical shape may put you in worse circumstances than before you received the treatment. Liposuction is about maintaining and keeping the fat off. Dr. Quinn will be able to determine if liposuction is right for you.


Your safety and satisfaction is our main concern. Please ask the doctor about any questions that you may have regarding preparation, procedure, and recovery.

Dr. Quinn and his staff will examine the areas you want to be treated and recommend which treatments to undergo. We will then create a treatment plan that suits your expectations and goals. Medical history and health history will be inquired about, so be sure to disclose any information about any medications you may be taking, and your current state of health. If deemed a good candidate for a liposuction procedure, you will be given the opportunity to schedule your surgery, although there is no obligation to do so. Contact our office today and schedule a consultation!


For three weeks before the procedure, please avoid any smoking, alcoholic drinking, and blood thinners. Continue to eat a healthy diet and ensure that you are getting enough sleep as well. Your body needs to be at full health for a smooth procedure and a speedy recovery.

The night before the procedure, be sure to shower with antibacterial soap and to refrain from eating and drinking after midnight. It is important to be comfortable on the day of the procedure, so feel free to wear clothing that you’re most relaxed in.

The Procedure

Depending on the treatment area and the type of liposuction a patient receives, the actual procedure may slightly vary. However, most of the procedures typically take around 1-2 hours. The procedure begins with inserting either a local or general anesthesia and marking the location of the incision.

Procedures take place at an outpatient surgical facility in Overland Park. The liposuction procedure involves making a small incision at the treatment area, through which Dr. Quinn inserts a metal tube called a cannula. The cannula is used to gently suck away the excess fat cells within the treatment area. Once the appropriate amount of fat has been removed, Dr. Quinn closes the incision site.

Recovery following liposuction is relatively short, but it may take some time for you to see the final results. Initially, compression garments may be used to reduce post-surgical swelling. You may also undergo processes to drain excess fluids or have medication administered as a precaution for infection. All pre and post-surgical decisions will be discussed with Dr. Quinn to ensure treatment satisfaction.

Once the procedure is done, you will be wrapped in a surgical garment which will help reduce swelling and assist with healing. After we apply the bandage, you are free to go home, as long as someone takes you home.


The price of liposuction depends on the patient’s individual goals and if any ancillary procedures will be performed. At your consultation, Dr. Quinn will provide you with a price that meets your expectations and goals. Please contact us now to schedule your consultation and take the first step to looking your best.
