Liposuction in Athens
At Parker Plastic Surgery, we offer liposuction in Athens for women and men who want to get rid of stubborn fat around their bodies. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Parker strives to provide the best results Athens has to offer.
Improve body shape by removing exercise-resistant fat deposits with a tube and vacuum device. Can be performed using the tumescent technique, in which targeted fat cells are infused with a saline-containing solution with a local anesthetic before liposuction to reduce post-operative bruising and swelling. Common locations for liposuction include the chin, neck, upper arms, above breasts, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, and calves.

Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, soreness, burning sensation, and temporary fluid drainage from incision sites.

I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for any type of body contouring needs.
Before choosing Dr. Parker for my tummy tuck and liposuction procedure, I wanted to have several consultations to make sure I found one that I was comfortable with and trusted. Well, from the time I walked into his office, I felt welcomed and at home. The staff exemplifies what great customer service is. When I met Dr. Parker, he greeted me with a smile and answered all my questions promptly and with confidence. I loved him so much, I had a second consultation to make sure he was who I wanted to go with. Well, I’m a week post tummy tuck with lipo surgery and I can’t wait to see my final results. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for any type of body contouring needs. Thank you so much, Dr. Parker and Staff

Liposuction removes undesirable, subcutaneous fat in isolated areas that do not respond to diet and exercise. These areas include the hips, thighs, abdomen, knees, neck, and arms. Liposuction is most successful in people with good skin tone who are near normal weight but have localized fatty deposits. It is not a treatment for obesity. It is intended to produce a more flattering figure by improving contours and proportions.
How Liposuction is Performed
The procedure involves small incisions through which a cannula or hollow tube is inserted. This tube is used to break up and remove the fat beneath the skin. Several areas can be suctioned in one operative setting although there is a limit to the amount that can be removed safely at one time.
Postoperatively patients will be bruised and swollen, and this will likely last several weeks. Pain and discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter medication. A compression garment is worn for several weeks to minimize fluid accumulation and facilitate skin settling. Our team will provide you with post-operative instructions to help you throughout your recovery following your liposuction in Athens.
During your consultation at Parker Plastic Surgery, our team can let you know the expected cost of your liposuction in Athens. The price of your liposuction surgery will be based on the techniques used and the amount of work required. Financing options are available.
