This is a middle aged lady that wished some improvement in her truncal contour, specifically her flanks. In the oblique pre-operative views you can see how the upper aspect of her buttock blends into her flank. This gives a “V” shape of the backside as opposed to the more feminine “S” shape as visualized in her post operative photos. This is especially evident in the oblique pictures. The suctioning of the flanks gave her more definition to the buttocks, narrowed the waist, and gave more definition to the waist. Clothes fit her much better now. Just suctioning alone of the flanks will give the perception of a more projecting buttock. Further shaping of the buttock can also be obtained by using the fat suctioned from the flank and injecting into the buttock. This gives more projection or either a more rounded contour to the buttock.

This is a 45-year-old gentleman who has been having problems with excessive fat around the waist area. He is very conscious of his body and exercises daily. He has done all the physical training he can to get rid of the excessive fat around the waist and also decrease the girth around his waist area. He came to me to see if we could give him any permanent help. He underwent liposuction with removal of around one pint of fat from each flank area. Also, I removed one quart of fat from his abdominal area. His abdomen is now less protuberant. However, the main improvement is the loss of the love handles. On the posterior view showing his flank area and chest, he has a very nice V-configuration. With his flanks now gone, it accentuates his latissimus dorsi muscle area.
This procedure is done as an outpatient at the hospital. Patients can return to work in around three days.

This is a 32YO lady from Bainbridge, Georgia that desired some cosmetic improvement of her waist and buttocks area. She has a moderate amount of fat in the flank area. She has tried dieting but could not get any significant decrease in the waist circumference. She noticed that her pants seemed to ride high because of the bulging in the love handle area.
She underwent SAFE liposuction of the love handle area and abdomen with fat grafts to the buttocks. As you can see, there is marked improvement in the shape of the waist and buttocks.
Fat grafting is where we remove fat from one area, process it, and inject it into an area that needs some more projection. This helps improve contouring of the body. Usually, about half of the fat will live permanently. The fat does not live is reabsorbed by the body.

This is a 35YO lady from Destin, FL. She was interested in getting some improvement of the contour in the bra area as well as in her flank area. She had some deep rolls in her back with indentions that she wished improved.
She underwent S.A.F.E. liposuction of the flank and bra area. You can tell that these areas have a much better shape now. We have almost now eliminated the deep creases that she had in her lateral back area.
S.A.F.E. liposuction is a procedure that we do wide loosening of the fat and tissue and removal excessive fat. We seem to get much better contouring with this type of liposuction. Also, it also seems to be much safer than ultrasonic and smart liposuction.
