Do you have areas of excess fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of through diet and exercise? At Carolina Plastic Surgery, Dr. Saira Saini can help you fully achieve your aesthetic goals through multiple cosmetic procedures, including liposuction to tighten and improve your body contours.
What is Liposuction?
Commonly referred to as “lipo” by many patients, liposuction has long been used in the medical field to eliminate areas of stubborn fat that are often resistant to diet and exercise, creating thinner, more toned body contours. This procedure has advanced to include several techniques for increased patient safety and comfort, and Dr. Saini will choose the method that best suits your condition and aesthetic goals.
Liposuction can be performed on multiple areas of the body, including the:
- Knees, calves, and ankles
Depending on your individual condition, Dr. Saini may be able to perform liposuction on multiple areas during a single treatment session. These options can be discussed during your consultation at our Fayetteville office.
During typical liposuction techniques, the treated area is numbed with anesthetic for patient comfort, and a small point of entry is made in the skin. Then a thin, hollow tube called a cannula is gently inserted into the skin and moved back and forth in the area to loosen the fat, where it is extracted through medical-grade vacuum suction.
While weight loss shrinks existing fat cells, liposuction completely removes excess fat from the body, creating slimmer contours that can be fully experienced after the initial healing process.

Depending on the extent of your procedure, a small amount of downtime may be required. Dr. Saini will advise you on when you can safely return to work and normal activities. Some mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort may be experienced during the initial healing process, which can be easily controlled through the post-surgical instructions provided to you by Dr. Saini.
Although treated fat is removed permanently, results are best maintained through healthy diet and exercise in order to prevent future fat accumulation.
