Liposuction has been used in plastic surgery for decades and remains one of the most sought-after procedures to create the physique patients are looking for. Because treatment only requires small incisions and recovery is manageable, patients often request liposuction to help slim problem areas where exercise-resistant fat persists, despite their best efforts. Dr. Maida Parkins offers fat removal treatment customized to create the shape you’re looking for, so you can feel confident in your figure.

Why Choose Liposuction for Body Contouring?
Surgical fat removal is a dependable and effective way of shaping the body when diet and exercise have failed to create the contours you want. It’s hard to fight what’s hereditary; some patients naturally store fat in their midsections, while others may have wide hips and even fat under the chin when they are otherwise slim.
When this is the case, it can be difficult to target certain areas of the body with workouts – many patients retain fullness in these areas, even with discipline in healthy activity and nutrition. Fat removal is versatile and can be used to shape the following problems areas:
- Stomach (belly pooch)
- Hips (love handles)
- Inner and outer thighs (saddlebags)
- Submental fat (double chin)
- Upper arms (bat wings)
Liposuction is a patient favorite because of the minimal incisions necessary to achieve results. And while liposuction does require downtime, it is comparatively less than more invasive procedures. Overall, this procedure smooths body bulges and helps patients feel great about their shape.

Liposuction in Milwaukee with Dr. Parkins
When you visit Parkins Plastic Surgery, you’ll be in the hands of our caring and compassionate team. Dr. Parkins and her staff treat each patient as a friend and make every effort to ensure they are comfortable. Before recommending treatment, we provide one-on-one consultations to evaluate your concerns and determine how liposuction can be used to create the figure you want. Some patients can benefit from fat removal alone, while others may need additional procedures.
During liposuction, Dr. Parkins takes the following steps:
A small incision is positioned at the treatment site; several incisions may be necessary, depending on the amount of fat to be removed and how many areas of the body you would like to target.
A solution is applied to the area through the incisions with the use of a cannula, which is a narrow tube. This helps to break up the fat deposits, making them much easier for Dr. Parkins to remove. The solution also contains an anesthetic, which creates a comfortable treatment experience.
Fat cells in the treatment area are then suctioned out of the body, using a smaller cannula than mentioned above. Dr. Parkins uses a gentle back-and-forth motion to thoroughly sculpt the body while removing the desired amount of fat.
Treatment can be completed with either local or general anesthesia, depending on your preferences and the extent of care required to meet your goals. After your procedure is complete, incisions are closed, and patients rest for a short time in our office before being released to recuperate in the comfort of their own homes.
If you are experiencing vertical stomach muscle separation due to significant weight loss or pregnancy, a tummy tuck can be provided in addition to stomach liposuction. Some patients may also need skin removal to ensure contours are smooth. Liposuction is often included as a part of comprehensive body shaping and mommy makeovers.

Fat Removal and Cosmetic Grafting
Aesthetic balance is tricky; while fat in some areas may be unappealing, fullness in other areas can make you look youthful and create the contours you’re looking for. Liposuction is part of the fat grafting process, where cells are taken from areas where they create unattractive bulges, purified, and reinjected in other locations to add desired volume. Popular areas of fat grafting are the buttocks (a procedure called the Brazilian butt lift), breast and the face, as an alternative to traditional facial fillers and other cosmetic injectables.
Fat cells placed in other areas are generally permanent. While some may be reabsorbed by the body, the cells that establish a blood supply do not diminish, adding lasting youthful volume and shape to areas that appear gaunt, flat, and prematurely aged.

Frequently Asked Questions about Liposuction
Are Results Permanent?
Yes – fat cells removed from areas treated with liposuction are gone permanently. If you gain weight after your procedure, you can expect your body size to change proportionately. Existing fat cells will expand, but the cells removed will remain gone. You can expect your body to remain shaped and contoured as dictated by your treatment plan.
Is Liposuction Painful?
As liposuction is a surgical procedure, patients should expect some discomfort during the healing process. However, while you are being treated you are provided with anesthetic to ensure you can complete your procedure easily. The solution placed at the treatment site to facilitate fat removal also contains an anesthetic, which further increases patient comfort. After your procedure, you will feel sore, but this will resolve as you heal.
What is Recovery Like?
Bruising and swelling are common after your procedure. Immediately after treatment, you should expect to spend a few days resting at home. Depending on how many parts of the body were treated with liposuction, you may need to take about a week away from work and strenuous physical activity.
After treatment, you will notice that your body is slimmer and smaller. You will wear compression garments to help reduce swelling and allow the soft tissue to retract successfully. Swelling and bruising fade gradually during the healing process, which may initially obscure results. Over the ensuing weeks, you’ll notice results maturing and skin becoming smooth. It’s important to be patient, as swelling persists for several weeks while you recover.
Does Lipo Get Rid of Cellulite?
Cellulite is caused only in part by pockets of fat. The real culprit is tight bands underneath the skin that pull soft tissue downward, creating the appearance of dips and dimples in the skin. Even individuals who are quite thin can have cellulite caused by these bands. Increased pockets of fat in the area can make cellulite look more pronounced, and liposuction can help to minimize these issues, but fat reduction does not eliminate skin dimpling entirely.
