Fat Removal Surgery in Miami FL

Submitted by Bernabe Vazquez on September 15, 2013


With our busy lifestyles, there are not always enough hours in the day to attend to the best possible self-care. Couple this with the effects of gravity and age, as well as with the after effects of pregnancy, and there are certain to be challenges.

Stubborn bulges that resist change can be a source of frustration and can contribute to not being able to wear what one wants. One may need to spend an inordinate amount of time to find the right clothing to hide unsightly bulges.

Luckily for most, there is a medical solution.

The Procedure

Fat removal surgery addresses the superficial layer of fat that is resistant to change through diet and exercise. Fat removal surgery removes unwanted fat by a technique known as liposuction (also known as liposculpture). This procedure diminishes and or reduces the fat cells in the treated area. Areas that respond well are the abdomen, thighs, hips and areas of the side body and the back.

Areas that have been treated by fat removal surgery will not respond to weight gain as before, however, new areas of fat deposits may be the result of weight gain in the future.

The Best Candidate

This surgery is best suited for those individuals that have achieved their desired weight loss and are active and healthy. Areas with stretch marks or very loose skin are often not adequately treated by liposuction alone and may require additional surgery.

The Importance of Board Certification

Locating the best plastic surgeon for your initial consultation is best done not just by referrals but also by choosing among the board certified plastic surgeons that are experienced with the most current and advanced techniques of liposuction.

Board certification ensures that the surgeon has been trained specifically in cosmetic procedures such as fat removal surgery and has passed the rigorous standards demanded by the specific organization.

Continuing education is a requirement as well as is a sterling reputation.


An experienced plastic surgeon will choose the correct procedure that is best suited for the patient and the area to be addressed. The procedures that are used by Dr. Bernabe Vazquez of Bayshore Cosmetic Surgery include S.A.F.E. liposuction and Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction. A full consultation should include your medical history, your questions and your expectations and a full examination of the areas to be addressed.

With the removal of up to twelve pounds of fat, patients will need to wear compressive garments for six weeks that minimize discoloration and swelling and enhance the new contoured figure.

Deciding to move forward with this surgery requires careful consideration of the right surgeon.
