Cosmetic Procedures






Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed today, and it offers long-lasting results in a variety of situations for both men and women. At the Wiesman Institute in Chicago, IL and Highland Park, IL, Dr. Irvin Wiesman offers a comprehensive menu of cosmetic surgery procedures customized to suit your unique needs. Liposuction is exceptionally effective at removing fat and sculpting the contours of your body into a more flattering shape.

Special surgical instruments are used to diminish localized fat deposits from problem areas when exercise and diet fail to produce desirable results. Liposuction can be used to remove excess fat from the following areas:

While liposuction is incredibly effective in the slimming and contouring of various parts of the body, the procedure does have its limitations. It will not, for example, prove effective against cellulite or sagging skin. These issues can be addressed using other cosmetic procedures in conjunction with liposuction, such as a thigh lift, a tummy tuck, or body contouring.

The Liposuction Process

Before the liposuction procedure begins, our team will ensure that you are completely comfortable using anesthesia and sedation as appropriate. We will talk with you about your sedation and anesthesia options prior to the beginning of your procedure. Our primary goal is to ensure that you feel safe, comfortable, and completely relaxed before, during, and after your surgery.

After anesthesia has been administered, your procedure will begin. Liposuction is performed using a special device called a cannula, a narrow tube that is used to break up fat and then suction it out. The cannula is inserted through a tiny, inconspicuous incision near the problem area. The incisions used in liposuction are very small, so any scars will be virtually unnoticeable. 

During recovery, elastic bandages and compression garments are used to cover any areas that have been treated. This aids in the control of any swelling as it simultaneously compresses the skin to the new shapes and curves of your body. Specific aftercare instructions – including information on how to care for your healing incisions and when you can return to certain activities – will be provided before you leave our practice following your procedure.

Liposuction Results that Last

You will notice a difference immediately after your procedure, but after swelling subsides in a few weeks, you will see how impressive the results truly are. Men and women who choose liposuction frequently report feeling more confident in their general appearance; their clothing fits more naturally, and they feel better about themselves in swimwear, underwear, and form-fitting pants and shirts. With a healthy diet and regular exercise, you can expect your liposuction results to last permanently.
