What is liposuction?

Liposuction is an advanced and popular procedure that can extract deposits of stubborn fat, slimming down the patient and contouring many parts of the body. Liposuction can be performed alone or it can complement another one of our procedures! Meet with Dr. Shapiro and his team today to decide if liposuction is your body contouring solution!

What parts of the body can liposuction treat?

Liposuction can remove fat from various parts of the body including the:

  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Midsection
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Calves and ankles
  • And more!

What are some benefits of liposuction?

  • One liposuction treatment session may be all you need to achieve your aesthetic goals
  • Liposuction can treat large and/or several areas during a single procedure
  • Can be performed with anesthesia to ensure your comfort
  • Results from liposuction have a greater reliability than certain non-invasive treatments

Am I a good candidate for liposuction?

Liposuction may be the right treatment approach for you if you:

  • Are an adult who is within 30% of their desired body weight
  • Do not smoke
  • Have realistic goals in regards to this procedure
  • Are not diagnosed with a terminal illness that inhibits your body’s healing capabilities

What is the recovery process like?

Following your procedure, Dr. Shapiro and his team will provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure the best lasting results of your newly contoured treatment area.

A compression garment will be necessary to protect the treatment area, maintain possible swelling, and help compress your skin to your body’s new contours. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled for Dr. Shapiro and his team to examine your recovery progress.

Dear Patients,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the reopening of my practice for both surgical and non-surgical services on May 1, 2020. As per the governor Ducey's executive order on April 22, 2020, elective surgery has been allowed to proceed, with appropriate precautions taken by health care professionals to ensure continued vigilance against the spread of Covid-19.

Our office staff and the staff of Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center and Surgical Recovery Center have proactively taken necessary precautions to meet strict criterion for health providers according to the state of Arizona. These include necessary patient screening for Covid-19, strict protocols for cleaning offices and treatment rooms, adequate PPE, and continued social distancing. As before, waiting areas will have minimal capacity, and friends and family members should not accompany one into offices or treatment areas.

With great anticipation we welcome you back to the practice, and wish you all continued health and safety.

Sincerely, Daniel Shapiro MD, FACS
