About Liposuction

If you want to safely, effectively, and permanently remove specific, localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise, consider liposuction. Liposuction is also an essential step for patients who get a Brazilian butt lift. Dr. McNemar’s cosmetic surgery suite in Tracy is convenient for cosmetic surgery patients from Modesto and other San Joaquin towns. Liposuction is one of the more popular procedures that Dr. McNemar performs.

Liposuction was first introduced to the United States in the 1980s. Since then, improvements in surgical techniques and instruments have allowed surgeons to perform the procedure more safely, to achieve better results, and to shorten the recovery period. Today, Dr. McNemar can choose from several advanced surgical techniques and instruments to help you achieve the best results. Although liposuction can produce amazing results, there are limits to what it can achieve. Recommended guidelines limit the amount of fat that can safely be removed and the amount of body sculpting that can be accomplished. Because of this, it should not be considered a substitute for weight reduction or a treatment for obesity.

Liposuction is among the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures performed in the United States. Each year, nearly half a million people have liposuction to remove unwanted fat and to redefine body proportions. The procedure is popular because it can produce dramatic changes in your body contour, often accomplishing what years of diet and exercise couldn’t achieve. Inconspicuous scars and a relatively short recovery period add to its appeal. With these advantages, it’s easy to see why millions of Americans, and perhaps you, are considering liposuction as a way to achieve a more sleek, streamlined appearance.

Liposuction: Commonly Treated Areas

Contouring with liposuction can be performed on several areas of the body, including:

  • Stomach/Abdomen
  • Thighs/Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Other Areas Where Fat Commonly Forms

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it possible to combine other procedures with liposuction?

Yes. Liposuction is frequently added to tummy tuck surgery to enhance its results without lengthening recovery time. Additionally, many women who have had children are interested in getting a mommy makeover. The popular combination of procedures usually includes liposuction, a tummy tuck, and breast augmentation or a breast lift.

Can liposuction treat cellulite?

Liposuction is a fat reduction procedure and doesn’t help eliminate the dimpled skin caused by cellulite. LipoSelection, the ultrasonic liposuction technique Dr. McNemar offers, does tighten the skin in certain cases, but it isn’t considered a cellulite treatment. Cellulite is caused by fibrous bands that pull on the skin from below, rather than by fat.

First off my procedure is not done until 1/20/21! Up until now I want to say that the Dr. Mc Nemar made me feel so comfortable. He was patient and kind as well as informative to all my questions. This is not my first cosmetic procedure. I have done my homework with what I am about to have done. I want to say that both Jasmin and Nash the office staff have always had a concern with all that I have come to ask and request. For that I would like to say thank you! Even today I received a call from Jasmin providing me with information that she did not have to provide. She went over and beyond and I wanted to acknowledge this. We as patients pay a lot of money and are faced with anxiety and many questions. When the office will provide you with all you need to make you comfortable that speak volumes. I am excited and can’t wait to have my procedure done with Dr Mc Nemar. I will come back I am sure with yet another testimonial of excellence. I have people that are waiting to see my results

I am here to review on the microdermabrasion facial service provided by Deborah. My skin was awful with break outs , aging and dull for few years. So I have finally made an initial visit with Deborah in nov.2020. she explained what she can help me with and what she will be doing throughout each step of the facial and was very happy to have an open discussion about other options to consider that would benefit a woman my age and my skin care concerns. It was a relaxing and pampering experience. My skin conditions has improved A LOT by just 3 visits and I had the procedure this afternoon. Skin looks plump and hydrated. I am feeling 10 yrs younger and feeling fantastic. The ladies working reception & check out were pleasant & friendly. My experience at this Tracy office was extremely satisfying and I would highly recommend Deborah for any skin/facial service you are considering. Thanks Deborah & staffs at Dr. McNemar! From Lily

Dr. McNemar preformed an abdominoplasty because I wanted to get rid of my 'mommy bulge' after 2 c-sections. He is a good communicator, has excellent bedside manner and answered all of my questions which eased my anxiety. More importantly, the results are amazing and the recovery wasn't bad at all. The first 2-3 days are the hardest but I got better and better each day. I feel more confident and fit into my clothes so much better than before. Thank you Dr. McNemar!

Had a breast reduction 7/31/20. Very happy with Dr McNemar and the results. What I’m not happy with is Flor who is very slow in submitting paperwork to EDD and my work to guarantee my job security. I’m still waiting on her as of today.

Is liposuction permanent?

Fat cells removed during the procedure are gone for good. You’ll enjoy the results of liposuction as long as your weight remains relatively stable. Weight gains usually appear in other areas than those where you had liposuction, because the fat cells that remain in your body can still enlarge.

How much fat can be removed during liposuction?

Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure, so the amount of fat removed isn’t significant. The actual amount of fat removed depends on the size of the treatment area or areas and the patient’s body size. There are general guidelines plastic surgeons follow to ensure the patient’s safety during liposuction. If a patient wants to treat multiple areas, Dr. McNemar may recommend undergoing separate operations to minimize the risk of complications.

Is liposuction safe?

Undergoing any major procedure does come with risks. To ensure that you are making the best decision for your health and safety it is recommended to entrust a board-certified plastic surgeon with your weight loss procedure. We recommend discussing your concerns in your consultation with Dr. Thomas McNemar in Tracy and San Ramon, CA.

Advantages of VASER

The technology used to perform LipoSelection by VASER is tissue-selective. Important tissues such as nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue remain relatively undisturbed while the ultrasound energy application fragments fat. Fat is subsequently removed in an emulsified state with massage and our proprietary cannulae that are designed with minimal tissue trauma in mind.
