Liposuction

Liposuction Surgery Procedure Abbotsford

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure performed both on men and women who have troublesome areas of fat. It is recommended to be at your ideal weight as this is not a procedure for weight loss, rather it is a cosmetic procedure performed to remove localized collections of excess fat that are unsusceptible to diet and exercise. This is done by little incisions being made in the skin and suctioned out. The end result of liposuction is to bring localized fat into proportion with the rest of the body. Common areas that liposuction can be performed on are: Hips, Thighs, Buttocks, Abdomen, Arms, Neck, and Chin

In your complimentary one-on-one consultation with Dr. Brown in our Abbotsford, BC office, he will discuss:

  • If you are a candidate for a liposuction
  • Your expectation and goals for surgery
  • The incisions and potential scars from the liposuction
  • What to expect before and after surgery
  • The benefits and risks of having a liposuction

Once you are done your consultation, you will be given a quote for the surgery, which is good for one year. This quote includes the fee for Dr. Brown to perform liposuction, the clinic and follow-up appointments with Dr. Brown. The only extra cost to you would be the pain medication that would be prescribed to you for after your surgery and general lab work (if you do not have a BC Care Card). You will be given a booklet of information to take home with you which will include your quote, more information on the face lift surgery, clinic information and financing options.
