Liposuction Plastic Surgery 

shutterstock_126247211In the hands of a well-qualified, considerate, and judicious surgeon, liposuction is a very safe, proven, and logical surgical procedure. It can effectively eliminate stubborn, localized fatty pockets that are unresponsive to exercise and diet alone.

According to Dr. Motykie, his women patients should aim to “keep the curves and get rid of the bulges” when seeking liposuction.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie MD provides liposuction to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

Common Sites for Liposuction

Patients commonly seek liposuction in the following areas:

Outer Thighs

Fat deposits in the outer thighs are also known as “saddlebags.” Women commonly experience stubborn fatty deposits in the outer thighs.

Inner Thighs

Women seek liposuction in the inner thighs to create the “thigh gap” which means that the inner thighs do not touch or rub against one another.

Anterior Thighs

This area is treated to ensure that it blends with the inner and/or outer thighs to attain a proportionate leg contour.


This area is also known as “love handles.” Stubborn fat on the waist is a standard problem in men. This area tends to spill out over the top or jeans of a waistband causing a “muffin top” appearance in women.


This is the region that lies right beneath the waist toward the upper, outer buttock area. It is vital to shape this area appropriately in women to create the appearance of a rounder and well-contoured butt as well as a voluptuous, feminine figure.


The patient usually receives upper and lower abdomen liposuction simultaneously to attain a smooth blending of the middle abdomen region.


Patients commonly receive liposuction in the back as the skin in this region is usually quite thick and forgiving.

Upper Arms

A reduction of fat in the upper arm area leads to the posterior upper arms remaining tauter and better defined with the passage of time.


Excess fat in the neck area can make a person appear older than their years as well as overweight. If the patient receives liposuction in this area, it can help them appear much fitter and younger.


The chest area is a common site for liposuction for aging men as this region tends to become full and flabby with age. Women undergo liposuction as a type of “scar-free” breast reduction.

Types of Liposuction

Tumescent Liposuction

The tumescent approach to liposuction involves infiltrating significant amounts of fluid with diluted quantities of the medicines lidocaine and epinephrine into the fatty tissues before administering liposuction. This fluid is delivered in the treated areas as a numbing agent as well as to minimize the risks of bruising and bleeding during and after the liposuction surgery.

Laser or Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction

Laser liposuction, also known as SmartLipo, involves the use of laser energy to liquefy fat to make its removal less traumatic.

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) utilizes ultrasonic wavelengths to render the fat into a liquid state before its elimination with surgical suctioning. The surgeon will insert the specialized ultrasound cannula after the infiltration process of the tumescent liquid.
