Advanced Liposuction in Arizona

Dr. Corey prefers suction assisted liposuction to some of the other trendy techniques available today. He feels it is the best technique to completely remove the fat cells.

Suction assisted liposuction works to break apart stubborn fat deposits, allowing for easier and more complete removal. Because fat is broken up or liquefied prior to removal, force is not needed during these liposuction procedures. Eliminating the forceful breaking apart of fat reduces damage to muscles and tissue surrounding the treatment area, in turn reducing pain following liposuction and allowing for a faster and more rewarding recovery experience.

It would, of course, be irresponsible to suggest that liposuction recovery is pain free, but we will work directly with you to ensure the most comfortable experience possible. Following recovery, your results will be permanent, making any temporary discomfort well worth the amazing benefits you can enjoy in just a few short months after your liposuction procedure. Additionally, the use of lymphatic massage has been shown to help the body recover faster and the swelling to subside.

Liposuction can be a great option for reducing excess pockets of fat, for both men and women! To learn more about liposuction recovery, please contact John J. Corey, MD today. Located in Scottsdale, our plastic surgeon serves Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa, Phoenix, and all surrounding areas of Arizona.
