Some of the common areas in which liposuction can be done include:
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Ankles
  • Calves
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Saddlebags
  • Love handles
  • Hips
  • Stomach
Making tiny incisions in the skin, your surgeon uses specialized tools to gently loosen the fat beneath the skin prior to the actual liposuction procedure. The loosened fat can then be suctioned out through a cannula, which is a small hollow tube like a straw. Many surgeons and patients alike view liposuction as more of a sculpting procedure. This is because the reduction of fat in specified areas typically leads to better overall proportions and better contours.

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that may be performed on its own, or in combination with another procedure, such as a tummy tuck. Where liposuction reduces the fat that lies under the skin, the tummy tuck procedure will remove excess skin that may not tighten back to its normal state on its own. During your consultation with Dr. Kwan, an assessment of the skin will help in making the determination if liposuction alone will produce the desired effect.

Being a Board Certified Surgeon, Dr. Kwan is armed with both the academic and technical expertise and experience to help patients accomplish their desired outcome from liposuction surgery. In many cases, today this procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, with the patient receiving specific pre- and post-operative instruction to facilitate optimal, stress-free recovery. Liposuction is a safe procedure that can benefit any adult who wishes to eliminate unwanted, excess fat. Dr. Kwan's prime motive is to help you improve your outward appearance so that it matches your inner vigor and beauty. Contact one of our conveniently located offices for your consultation.

    Dr. Kwan is by far the most talented surgeon I have EVER crossed paths with. I came to Dr. Kwan after an under eye fat transplant, performed 'by another' plastic surgeon, which deformed my face. It was only until I was under Dr.Kwan's care that the deformity was corrected. Dr. Kwan literally gave me back my beauty. This was a priceless feeling. That was about 4 years ago, I can assure you ever since- Dr. Kwan is the ONLY plastic surgeon I trust my face and body to. I look forward to my body contouring procedure coming up in a few weeks!! :)

    The staff treated me very kindly, with respect and genuine smiles. Dr Kwan is a real professional in my opinion. He took the time to listen to my story, addressed my concerns and took his time to walk me through the process and give me his opinion and explanation on his recommendation. I had my surgery in his practice and we went over everything again before I met up with the anesthesiologist, who was equally as nice and professional as everyone else at his practice. We started counting bikes ... and after bike #6 I fell a sleep. When I woke up, he was there to tell me I did great and before I knew it I was in a taxi cab back home with my best friend who came to pick me up. So I don't know if this is typical, but I had no pain whatsoever after the surgery. . I am very very happy with the results. Dr Kwan did an amazing job and I couldn't be more pleased.

    I was invovled in an automobile accident last May, 2013. The outcome from the emergency room left me with 5 stitches on the bridge of my nose, and the tip of my nose was missing due to the severe impact of the accident. I called and scheduled an appointment to visit Dr. Kwan so he could assess my nose. Upon arriving to the office, I was immediately impressed with the facility, service, and profesionalism of his staff. Dr. Kwan met with me and examined my nose and in detail, he explained the approach he would take in order to get my nose like brand new again.On the day of my surgery, I was met by Dr Kwan, who performed the surgery, himself. His Anestigeologist was very informative and professional as well. The outcome of Phase 1 was a success. In addition to that, the staff even called my medication into the pharmacy that way it would be ready as soon as I left the office. My nose is 98% back to normal, I now look forward to Phase 2 to be completed. After that procedure is done I am positive my nose will look absolutely perfect and I will be back to my confident self again. Thanks Dr Kwan and Staff.

    I have had several surgeries with Dr Kwan, and would recommend him highly. Liposuction of abdomen and love handles came out smooth. Upper eyelids look younger and refreshed, and the Basal Cell Cancer he cut out of my nose is not even visible, despite the fact that it was right along the rim of my left nostril.

    I have been using Dr Kwan for over 10 years now. I have had many different procedures and all of them have turned out great. One of the breast augmentations had a crimp in the left breast and he had no problem going in to revise it to assure my satisfaction. I have always liked the way he answers each of my concerns and we go over everything for each procedure I've done several times to assure we are on the same page :) Take a list of any questions or concerns an I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
