Minimally Invasive Liposuction? Yes, It’s Possible.


Diet and exercise-resistant fat can plague the vast majority of us. Even patients who are a healthy weight may have excess fat in localized areas. Because diet and exercise aren’t effective in ridding the body of these pockets, it can be nearly impossible to achieve your ideal body on your own. If you’re struggling with unwanted fat, come see Dr. Matarasso. We offer minimally invasive liposuction so you can discover your dream body with a faster recovery time. Call today!

What Is Minimally Invasive Liposuction?

Liposuction isn’t one-size-fits-all. There are many different types of liposuction, each with different benefits. Dr. Matarasso has chosen to offer tumescent liposuction to his patients. He believes this treatment offers an ideal mix of speedy recovery times and patient safety. He has provided liposuction for many years with excellent results.

Having been performed since the 1980s, tumescent liposuction is considered one of the safest and most accurate types of liposuction available. It can be performed under only local anesthetic and sometimes mild sedation. Incisions are smaller than traditional liposuction incisions and recovery times tend to be faster.

With tumescent liposuction, a lidocaine solution is injected into the fat before it is removed. This causes the fat cells to swell and firms the tissue before removal, allowing Dr. Matarasso to remove more fat with greater accuracy.

I’m Thinking About Liposuction. What Areas Can You Treat?

Liposuction isn’t a weight loss treatment but, rather, a body contouring procedure. It works best on patients who are close to their ideal weight but with localized pockets of fat. It can be performed on many areas of the body, including:

  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Knees
  • Lower Legs
  • Waist
  • Male Breasts (gynecomastia)
