Eating right and exercising are the healthiest ways to lose weight, but many people retain problem areas of fat, no matter how strict their diet and exercise regimen is. Because of this, Plastic Surgery of the Carolinas offers liposuction to our South Carolina and North Carolina patients who may be good candidates.

Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction is a procedure that surgically removes these problem areas. Liposuction at our South Carolina location is performed by the skilled hand of Dr. Ram Kalus. Depending on a patient’s needs, our plastic surgeon can target many body areas with liposuction, including the legs, buttocks, hips, stomach, arms, chin, neck, and ankles.

Our technique incorporates the use of tumescent liposuction through our Columbia practice. This technique uses a dilate local anesthetic solution with adrenaline which is injected into the area to be treated. This allows for same and bloodless removal of the fat. The techniques used in tumescent liposuction reduce post-operative bruising and pain.

Tumescent liposuction is completed while the patient is under anesthesia. This outpatient surgery may last one to two hours, or longer, depending on desired results and the extent of liposuction required. Patients may experience minor discomfort and swelling, which will disappear during the brief healing period. Once healed, patients who have tumescent liposuction through our Charleston, South Carolina practice will notice a more sculpted and toned physique.

“I am just thrilled with the success of my recent liposuction. Your surgery flattened my abdomen and gave me the motivation to take better care of myself through diet and exercise.*”
