Nonsurgical Options and Lasting Results
for Liposuction in Metro Atlanta

Our Atlanta Liposuction patients who come to our offices are often in good health overall but want to reduce stubborn fat cells 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 cells in the neck. Women and men often combine Liposuction with other procedures at Y Plastic Surgery for comprehensive physical transformations.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or body contouring, is a cosmetic procedure designed to remove unwanted fat from specific areas of the body. This minimally invasive surgery targets stubborn fat cells that do not respond to diet and exercise. Dr. Asaf Yalif uses advanced techniques, such as laser and ultrasound-assisted liposuction, to break down and suction out the fat cells, providing patients with smoother, more contoured physiques.

Ideal Candidates

Ideal Atlanta Liposuction Candidates

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. Liposuction is ideal for individuals in good health who are close to their ideal weight but struggle with localized fat deposits. Liposuction enhances body aesthetics by targeting and eliminating stubborn fat cells.

When considering Liposuction Atlanta candidates typically have exercise and diet-resistant fat in areas such as:

  • Neck/chin
  • Breasts/chest
  • Abdomen
  • Hips/flanks
  • Back
  • Inner or outer thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Knees, calves, or ankles

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.

Body Procedures


Understanding Your 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.

Laser And Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction

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 “Super-Wet” Liposuction

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.

Effective Options

Combining Procedures with Liposuction

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.

Liposuction Recovery & Results

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. We provide a completely private consultation to discuss your areas of concern and create a customized treatment plan that addresses your needs. Men and women considering Liposuction travel from Atlanta and throughout Georgia to have Dr. Yalif perform the procedure. Request a consultation using the online form to discuss your goals personally with Dr. Yalif, or call us at (404) 822-4402 to schedule an appointment.
