What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is performed to remove stubborn pockets of fat that typically do not respond to dieting or exercise. The procedure is effective in trimming fatty bulges all over the physique for a slimmer, more youthful presentation. Liposuction in Nashville can be performed on its own, or it can be combined with another cosmetic solution, such as a tummy tuck, mommy makeover, or thigh lift. During surgery, a slender tube called a cannula is threaded through a small incision in the treatment zone. The fat cells are then gently suctioned out and either discarded or preserved for a future fat grafting procedure. After liposuction, the treatment area is wrapped in a compression garment to help minimize swelling and keep the newly contoured shape intact.

Patient Testimonial

"Dr. Burgdorf and his staff are absolutely incredible; they make you feel instantly comfortable, and you’ll leave their office feeling 100x more confident. I had cosmetic surgery one month ago, and I have never looked better; the recovery was quick and easy, and his staff made sure I felt supported every step of the way. Dr. Burgdorf truly cares about his patients and approaches vulnerable conversations/examinations with the utmost respect and professionalism. "


Types of Liposuction

SAFE lipo

Dr. Burgdorf performs SAFE (Separation, Aspiration, Fat Equilibration) liposuction using a powered-assisted device. With this approach, he is able to better sculpt the tissue, avoiding the aggressive bruise-inflicting tactics required with the manual technique, where the cannula is repeatedly thrust inside the patient.

Awake lipo 

Awake liposuction, performed using a tumescent solution of saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine, allows Dr. Burgdorf to remove stubborn, unwanted pockets of fat with minimal side effects, discomfort, or downtime. Because local anesthesia is used instead of general anesthesia, there is no risk of nausea, vomiting, fatigue, constipation, or other complications.

Liposuction FAQ

Is liposuction painful?

Will liposuction tighten the skin?

When can I have intercourse after liposuction?

Which is better, CoolSculpting or liposuction?

How long do liposuction results last?

Is liposuction painful?

Modern, cutting-edge liposuction methods are more gentle and effective than those used in the past. Dr. Burgdorf can discuss your desired level of anesthesia and sedation with you during your private consultation.

Will liposuction tighten the skin?

No. Liposuction is performed to remove stubborn fat, not skin. Younger patients undergoing liposuction after childbirth will likely have adequate skin elasticity, which means their skin will shrink back to normal after the procedure. Those patients undergoing liposuction after aging or significant weight loss may need a combination treatment that includes non-surgical or surgical skin tightening.

When can I have intercourse after liposuction?

Liposuction does not involve any surgical cutting or sutures, so there is no risk of damaging your incisions while having sex. However, after liposuction, you may experience soreness, bruising, and swelling. Just as you will want to avoid strenuous exercise at first after your surgery, you will also want to abstain from intimacy until you are feeling more like your old self. Dr. Burgdorf will guide you every step of your recovery and will give you the go-ahead when you can resume intercourse.

Which is better, CoolSculpting or liposuction?

CoolSculpting involves freezing the fat cells, which are then removed through the body’s natural excretion process over time. With liposuction, the fat cells are removed right away at the time of surgery. CoolSculpting may require several sessions, but with liposuction, a single appointment is enough to accomplish the patient’s desired changes. In general, liposuction results tend to be more dramatic and they can be seen sooner than with other body sculpting methods.

How long do liposuction results last?

Results with liposuction are lasting and sustainable, provided that you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen. If you do gain weight after surgery, it may impact your results but only partially. Patients typically don’t gain weight back in the places that were treated by liposuction.
