Offering Liposuction in Milwaukee
Eliminate Fat for a Slimmer Look
Despite diet and exercise, oftentimes people have residual areas of fat on their body that cannot be lost through traditional methods. Fat deposits can cause unsightly bulges and contour deformities in a number of areas such as the upper and lower abdomen, neck, arms, flanks (love handles), inner and outer thighs, calves, and knees. In cases where your efforts haven’t given you the results you desire, liposuction may be an option to help you achieve your goals. Dr. Bosbous uses liposuction to permanently remove excess fat and change the contour of your areas of concern. Your results will depend on several factors, such as your age, sex, skin quality, and area the excess fat is located. At your consultation, Dr. Bosbous will take the time to answer your questions, evaluate your areas of concern and determine if liposuction is the appropriate procedure for you.
Dr. Bosbous brings professionalism and detail to every procedure he performs to help his patients achieve the results they desire. By building trusting relationships and giving individualized care to his liposuction patients in the Milwaukee area, Dr. Bosbous strives to make your plastic surgery experience comfortable and enjoyable.
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction in Milwaukee?
If you are generally healthy and feel that you have some areas of excess fat that are causing unsightly bulges or contour deformities, you may be a candidate for liposuction. Some of the benefits of a liposuction procedure include:
- The removal of excess fat that is resistant to diet and exercise
- Long lasting contour changes to the treated areas
- Typically an easier recovery time than many other procedures
The Liposuction Procedure
At the beginning of the procedure a special dilute fluid that contains local anesthetic and epinephrine (a drug used to constrict small blood vessels) is injected through small incisions into the area to be treated. A small tube, known as a cannula, is then connected to suction and passed back and forth within the fat tissue removing the excess. The treated area will be constantly monitored to make sure an appropriate amount is removed. Any incisions required for the liposuction procedure will be closed at the end, and a special compression garment will be put in place to help with swelling and support.
One of the most common procedures in the Milwaukee area, liposuction can be performed on a number of different areas in both men and women. Liposuction is also often combined with other procedures such as tummy tuck, neck lift, body lift, and breast reduction. The procedure requires only tiny incisions that Dr. Bosbous will attempt to place in well-concealed areas.

Liposuction Recovery and Results
Bruising and swelling may occur, but should gradually improve over 4-5 weeks. Most patients return to work and light activity within a week of their procedure. Vigorous exercise and activity should be put off for 3-4 weeks following surgery. Dr. Bosbous will work with you to determine your individual care and recovery needs.
