With liposuction from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Stratis, many women and men have achieved a smooth, toned look. Liposuction removes areas of stubborn, exercise-resistant fat in the arms, thighs, hips and abdomen.

Liposuction may be performed under general anesthesia or sedation. Small incisions are made in inconspicuous locations. Through these incisions, the tissues will be infused with a sterile liquid solution to reduce bleeding and allow for easier access to the treatment area. Excess fat is removed through a tube called a cannula.
After the procedure, you may experience swelling or fluid retention, but these will subside with time. When the swelling is gone, you will see a smoother, slimmer body contour. By maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly, you can preserve the results of your liposuction.
Liposuction also can be useful in other procedures such as male breast reduction, gut tuck/tummy tuck, or a face lift. If you are interested in improving your skin or facial features, Dr. Stratis's partner, Dr. Scott Gayner, offers a variety of surgical and non-surgical options.
