Experience the transformation you've been dreaming of with liposuction at The Park & Rebowe Clinic for Plastic Surgery in Mobile, AL. Our expert team offers advanced liposuction techniques to sculpt your body and remove stubborn fat deposits. Whether you're looking to enhance your curves, achieve a slimmer profile, or target specific areas, we provide personalized solutions to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
Targeted Fat Removal
Liposuction uses high-pressure suction to remove fat from undesired areas and thick deposits on the body, most commonly in the form of: hip contouring, buttocks contouring, lower leg contouring, Tummy Tuck, thigh contouring, back contouring, upper arm contouring, chin contouring, or neck contouring. Liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss, as the amount of fat that can be safely removed and the ability of the skin to shrink down are limited, especially after previous skin expansion with pregnancy and significant weight fluctuations.
Several supplemental techniques are available for specific situations.
Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) uses a powered cannula to assist with breaking up the fat and increasing its removal.
Laser-assisted liposuction, Smartlipo®, introduced in 2007, uses an Nd:YAG laser, which is passed through the subcutaneous plane to create energy to lyse fat cells and improve fat removal and contraction of the overlying skin.
The Art of Body Sculpting
Liposuction offers a range of benefits for individuals seeking body contouring and fat removal. Some of the key advantages include:
Before the procedure, you'll have a consultation to discuss your goals, ensuring your expectations are aligned with the potential outcomes of liposuction. Patients often notice visible improvements shortly after the procedure, with ongoing progress as swelling subsides.

Understanding the Procedure
Most liposuction can be safely performed in an approved outpatient surgical facility. Small liposuctions can be done with local anesthesia and mild sedation. In order to ensure a safe environment and a good result, the procedure should be done by physicians and facilities trained in plastic surgery and, even more specifically, in liposuction procedures. The operation time can vary from one to five hours depending on the volume aspirated and the number of body sites and positions addressed.
As with all cosmetic procedures, patient expectations must be reasonable, and patients must understand that the goal of liposuction is restoring a more desirable shape and contour to the body, not removing all fat below the skin. In all liposuction techniques, small incisions are made near the area to be suctioned in a crease or covered area. Each area is usually suctioned from multiple directions in a cross-tunneling technique with metal cannulas to obtain a smooth result.
In “dry” liposuction, no fluid is added, and volumes are limited due to blood loss.
During “wet” liposuction, “super wet” liposuction, and “tumescent” liposuction, one of many various formulas of crystalloid, local anesthetic, and vasoconstrictive agents is added prior to liposuction, reducing damage to lymphatic and circulatory vessels, which reduces bruising, swelling, and blood loss and allows for a greater volume of fat removal.
The facility and type of anesthesia used will vary depending on surgeon preference and the volume of fat to be removed. In addition, the local anesthetic may make anesthesia or heavy sedation unnecessary, and the fluids provide necessary resuscitation. Some patients have enough excess fat that treatment requires multiple sessions in order to maximize safety. Ideally, this is determined before surgery, but on occasion, an unplanned second procedure is necessary. Monitoring, safety precautions, and overnight observation may be necessary as larger fluid shifts affect blood pressure, heart rate, and kidney function.
Your Path to a Leaner You
The wetting solution limits post-operative pain for up to a day, but even then, most patients only suffer moderate discomfort that diminishes over the first week. There is always some bloody drainage from the incisions.
Typically, our Mobile and Fairhope liposuction patients return to work and casual activities in a week. After liposuction, avoiding strenuous activity and compression are important to limit swelling and prevent fluid collection. Bruising and swelling are significant for several weeks but are limited with form-fitted garments that also help the skin re-contour without dimples or creases. Swelling needs to resolve before the true results can be appreciated.
As the swelling subsides and your body heals after liposuction Mobile and Fairfield patients will begin to notice a significant reduction in the targeted fat deposits. Your results will continue to improve over the following weeks, and you'll enjoy a slimmer, more contoured appearance. Many of our patients experience a boost in self-confidence and a newfound enthusiasm for a healthier lifestyle. Liposuction can provide long-lasting results when combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise. Our team is dedicated to helping you achieve the body you desire, and we're here to support you every step of the way in your post-surgery journey.
Liposuction is not a weight loss method. It is a body contouring procedure designed to remove localized fat deposits. Liposuction is most effective for individuals who are near their ideal weight but have stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Many of the serious life-threatening complications discussed in the media have occurred in the hands of poorly trained or equipped doctors, and risks can be limited by choosing a properly trained and certified plastic surgeon and facility. However, even under these circumstances, there are potential complications such as dehydration, infection, bleeding, contour irregularities, fat recurrence, fat emboli, and deep venous thrombosis/pulmonary emboli, which require treatment.
