Mini Liposuction Before & After

Most people have parts of their body that unwanted fat seems to accumulate regardless of what types or how much exercise and dieting they do. The mini liposuction treatment offers an affordable solution for these small areas. They are less complicated procedures and cover smaller areas than a typical liposuction treatment.

Because of this, prices are dramatically cheaper as well. Ideal candidates are at or close to their recommended, healthy weight, but only desire to have one or two small spots on their bodies enhanced, to give them a more balanced and in proportion form.

The most common areas for this new liposuction procedure are around the knees, beneath the chin, above the breast, near the armpit, and behind the elbows.

There are several other major areas around the, like the stomach and butt, that the treatment can be used to remove small amounts of fat.

This procedure is relatively new, but the results are nothing shy of spectacular. Less than three pounds of fat is removed from one or two areas on the body.

The procedure lasts about an hour and the patient is awake with the use of a local anesthetic. Smaller surgical tools and incisions result in faster recovery.

Because of the limited scope of the procedure, there are fewer risks and complications than standard liposuction. Both the procedural time and recovery time are fractions of liposuction and recovery is a lot less painful. Patients can return to their normal lives almost immediately, usually the next day. Even exercise can be recommenced with a couple of days.

Mini liposuction is an outpatient procedure and side effects are less than liposuction. Patients typically only complain of mild bruising, pain, and swelling. The final results will begin to be evident with a few days to a couple of weeks.

The most important aspect of the procedure, however, is the cost. It can cost as low as $1,200 and up to $2,500 depending on the doctor and location. But even if the procedure is at the high end, it can be up to a quarter the cost of a standard liposuction treatment. Because the treatment has only been introduced a few years ago, there are a limited number of doctors who can perform the procedure. Don’t be discouraged, as the number of doctors is continuing to increase at a very rapid pace.

As with any medical procedure, there are some risks. The risk is minimal and rare, but they do exist. Most commonly reported are infection, bruising, bleeding, and swelling of the treatment site. But unlike standard liposuction, mini liposuction does not have the side effect of abnormally shaped treatment areas.

Although mini liposuction is a relatively minor treatment, its results are amazing. The procedure can quickly improve a patient’s looks, confidence, and self-esteem for low cost, low risk, and short recovery times.
