Transform Your Body
Our Atlanta Liposuction patients who come to our offices in Alpharetta or Atlanta, GA, are often in good shape overall but want to reduce stubborn fat in specific areas of the body. Traditional Liposuction techniques are more invasive than nonsurgical fat reduction treatments but produce the most dramatic, predictable, and lasting results. Liposuction reshapes the body and can also be used to reduce fat in the neck. Women and men often combine Liposuction with other procedures at Y Plastic Surgery for comprehensive physical transformations.
The cost of liposuction in Atlanta varies depending on the number of areas treated by Dr. Yalif. For the first area, the cost starts at $5,000. A second area of Liposuction is $1,600 and the price for the third area is $1,200. Learn more about what’s included in the cost of Liposuction and other procedures on our pricing page.
Age generally isn’t a factor when deciding if patients can benefit from Liposuction. It’s important that your skin retains most of its elasticity so that it shrinks to fit the new contours. Dr. Asaf Yalif discusses if Liposuction is right for you during your private consultation.
Excellent Liposuction candidates have exercise and diet-resistant fat in areas such as:
Liposuction isn’t a weight loss procedure. Patients should have less than 10 pounds of fat to be removed in the area of concern. As with all elective cosmetic surgery procedures, patients should be nonsmokers in good overall health before undergoing any procedure.
Dr. Yalif, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, performs Liposuction using general anesthesia. It is an outpatient procedure, meaning you’ll return home on the day of the surgery after recovering from the anesthetic’s effects. Dr. Yalif offers different Liposuction techniques to get the best outcome for each patient.
These 2 techniques use laser technology or high-frequency ultrasound to dissolve or emulsify fat, making it easier for Dr. Yalif to suction the fatty tissue from the treatment area. These techniques are especially useful for denser areas of fat such as the thighs, back, and abdomen. Both methods are also less invasive and require shorter recovery times.
Tumescent Liposuction infuses the treatment area with a solution of saline, anesthetic, and epinephrine, which helps limit bleeding and swelling. Dr. Yalif makes a tiny incision and inserts a small, straw-like wand, called a cannula, which he uses to break up the fat and suction it from the body. Using power-assisted Liposuction, which features a vibrating wand, Dr. Yalif can remove several pounds of fat in a treatment. This is the traditional, gold standard approach to surgical fat removal. It offers effective, lasting results, but does have a longer recovery and is more invasive.

Liposuction can be a surgery all on its own; however, it is usually combined with other surgeries, such as skin tightening procedures, for the best cosmetic results. Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) combined with liposuction is extremely common, and Mommy Makeover procedures–which combine cosmetic breast surgery with body contouring procedures–very frequently incorporate liposuction. All these options can be discussed during the initial complimentary consultation with Dr. Yalif.
Dr. Yalif performs Liposuction at an accredited surgical center or at a local hospital as an outpatient procedure. The surgery generally takes between 1 to 2 hours to complete, depending on how much fat is being removed and the number of treatment areas. Although it takes a couple of weeks for patients to fully recover, most return to work and light activity within days. Since the incisions are typically 1/4 inch or less, scarring is minimal. Maintaining a well-balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle can help extend the results, which can last for years.
When all your efforts and time spent at the gym go unnoticed because that last little bit of fat won’t go away, you can take matters into your own hands with Liposuction.
