As many people know, sometimes exercise just isn't enough to remove fat from certain areas of the body. Despite dedicated attempts to slim a body area, exercise resistant fat can persist to plague certain areas of the body. Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion. It can be performed alone or in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures such as facelift, breast reduction, or abdominoplasty.

Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:

  • Thighs
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Inner knee
  • Chest area
  • Cheeks, chin and neck
  • Calves and ankles

At your initial consultation, Dr. Hawner will have an in depth discussion with you to review your medical history and listen to your plastic surgery desires and goals. He will also conduct a thorough examination to determine amount of excess fat distribution throughout the problem area. By the end of your consultation, Dr. Hawner will have developed a plan tailored for your specific body requirements and your desired goals for the outcome.
