Liposuction Miami, FL

Liposuction is a highly versatile, minimally invasive way of removing fat from virtually any part of the body. With liposuction, you can sculpt away fat deposits that aren’t responsive to exercise or dieting, allowing you to achieve your ideal contours

With this procedure, surgeons only need to make incisions of only a couple of centimeters, giving them access to strategically suction the fat layer with a thin, tube-like instrument called a cannula. With the development of newer liposuction technologies, like VASER Hi-Def, patients can attain a more toned look that highlights their unique musculature. New devices on the market, like J-Plasma– recently renamed Renuvion- utilize low-level plasma energy to encourage the skin to adhere closely to your new curves after liposuction.

About Liposuction 

Since its inception in the 1970s, liposuction has grown to become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons cited liposuction as the fourth most popular cosmetic surgery in 2020. In just that year alone, surgeons in the U.S. performed over 210,000 individual procedures. (3) Still, the main principles of the procedure remain the same: body sculpting through suction of unwanted fat deposits. Today, the international standard for liposuction involves tumescent fluid, a solution applied to the treatment area to prepare the fat tissues for removal. With the help of tumescent fluid, liposuction can slim down the: 

  • Abdomen 
  • Love Handles 
  • Flanks 
  • Buttocks 
  • Back 
  • Hips 
  • Upper Arms 
  • Thighs
  • Chin

Ideal Candidates 

If you are a man or woman looking to rid themselves of unwanted fat bulges, liposuction may be exactly what you need. Your surgeon will first make sure you do not have significantly lax skin in the treatment area that can be made worse by liposuction. If you have a lot of excess skin and/or separated abdominal muscles from pregnancy, we may recommend a tummy tuck or a tummy tuck after massive weight loss. Mildly lax skin, on the other hand, may benefit from J-Plasma, a device that contracts the connective fibers in the dermis layer of your skin. 

In general, prospective patients for liposuction should have realistic expectations and be willing to maintain a healthy diet to promote a healthy recovery and sustain long-term results. 

Personal Consultation

During your consultation at Miracle Mile Cosmetic Center, your surgeon will speak with you concerning your options for liposuction and if you could benefit from J-Plasma. They will evaluate the prospective treatment area and ensure you have quality skin that can recoil after this fat removal procedure. You will have the chance to ask questions about their recommendations, the preparation process, or the recovery afterward. You and your surgeon will work together to create a treatment plan that aligns with your vision for your ideal body.

Liposuction and Complementary Procedures 

Depending on your needs, your anesthesiologist may place you under general anesthesia or your surgeon may only provide you with local anesthesia and sedation. You will further discuss your options for anesthesia at your consultation. 

Tumescent Liposuction 

For this relatively simple form of the procedure, your surgeon will inject tumescent fluid into the fat layer of the chosen treatment area. This solution contains epinephrine that will constrict blood vessels to prevent bleeding, lidocaine to completely desensitize the area, and saline that will cause the fat cells to swell, preparing them for removal. Next, your surgeon will take a cannula to suction out the excess fat. The incisions for liposuction in general are only 1.5 to 3 cm in length, so they are extremely insignificant. They will take the time to strategically place these small incisions in more discreet areas that can be easily hidden by clothing or the curves of your body. 


VASER Hi-Def is a highly advanced form of liposuction that utilizes VASER (vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance), a device that emits ultrasound energy. To apply this technology, your surgeon will make the liposuction incisions to insert the VASER probe, applying gentle vibrational energy to the fat tissues. As a result, the fat breaks apart and emulsifies, facilitating a much easier removal process once they suction these targeted deposits.

Not only that, but your surgeon can use a technique known as etching, a process in which they will leave behind thin layers of fat to add more definition to the musculature. Many patients choose to get abdominal etching to accentuate their abdominal muscles. All in all, ultrasound-assisted liposuction promotes more fat-targeting precision, requires less downtime, and results in less bruising for patients. (4) 


In April of 2023, J-Plasma/Renuvion was FDA-approved for the purpose of skin-firming after liposuction. Using the same liposuction incisions, your surgeon can insert the J-Plasma probe to administer plasma energy, the fourth state of matter. The device heats up subdermal areas to 185 degrees Fahrenheit for only a small fraction of a second. Because of the design of the wand and the rapid cooling as the energy rises to the skin surface, J-Plasma won’t harm the skin on the outside or the deeper dermal layers. (5) 

With this post-liposuction treatment, you can avoid the need for a more complicated skin-removal procedure and still enjoy the benefits of liposuction. The procedure by itself typically takes about 1 hour to complete. 

Recovery and Results 

On the first few days of your recovery, you will likely be sore, swollen, and bruised, though you will be able to go home the same day. Your surgeon will prescribe medications to keep you comfortable for these initial days, but it’s likely that you will only require over-the-counter medications to reduce your discomfort.

You will wear a compression garment for a period of a few weeks, depending on the location and size of your treatment area. This garment is necessary to help the swelling subside and to prevent the development of seroma, or fluid buildup under the skin. Keep in mind that every patient will have their own individual rate of healing that depends on the extent of the procedure and if they underwent J-Plasma or VASER. Typically, patients feel well enough to return to work in about 7 to 10 days. At around 6 weeks, most patients can flaunt their final results, without looking “done” or swollen. Over the course of the following months, residual swelling will resolve, refining the results further.

Is liposuction permanent? 

Liposuction can create permanent results if you work to maintain your weight with a proper diet and exercise. Once fat is removed, it will not regenerate, but your existing fat tissues can expand if you gain weight. 

Will I lose weight with liposuction? 

Surgeons perform liposuction as a means to cosmetically enhance the body, not to provide a significant amount of weight loss. Typically, patients undergoing liposuction only lose about 2 to 5 pounds. Liposuction is intended for patients who are fairly close to their ideal weight. 

Will liposuction leave me with loose skin? 

If you have young, healthy skin, it should recoil back once you are fully healed. More advanced forms of liposuction, such as VASER can provide mild skin-tightening effects. More significant results can be achieved with J-Plasma, a device your surgeon can use post-procedure to encourage skin tautness.
