In the last few posts, I have discussed background information on liposuction, what liposuction is for, and who is a candidate. I also think that cold laser liposuction gives great results with a short healing time. Below are a few patients with their before and after liposuction pictures to illustrate.

Case 1
The first patient is a 28 year old female who has had two children. She is unhappy with the shape of her abdomen. Her before photograph shows that she has excess fat as well as loose skin. She wants to have more children, so she did not want to undergo a tummy tuck. An abdominoplasty would address the excess fat, loose skin and tummy muscle bulge. However, pregnancies after an abdominoplasty can cause more loose skin and create a separation of the abdominal muscles. Because she wanted to have more children, the patient has opted for laser liposuction only. The cold laser will permanently remove excess fat and sculpt her abdomen so that she has a better shape and proportion.

This liposuction before and after picture of the abdomen shows that targeted sculpting of the abdomen results in a narrower waistline and better proportion. The incisions for liposuction of the abdomen are approximately 1/8″ and are hidden in the pubic area.

The side view of this women shows that after laser liposuction her tummy is flatter. The fat cells removed by laser liposuction are permanently removed. The body will not make new fat cells after the liposuction procedure is performed.


Although she has a much improved shape, the patient would have a flatter abdomen with a tummy tuck. a tummy tuck not only removes excess fat, but tightens the abdominal muscles and removes excess skin.

Case 2 
This patient is a 30 year old male. Although he has a rigorous exercise routine, he still has fat that obscures his shape. Laser liposuction permanently removes the stubborn fat pockets to reveal a more sculpted abdomen.

This photograph reveals that after laser liposculpture, this man’s well developed abdominal muscles are visible. Although liposuction cannot give a person a six pack, it will remove the fat that obscures well defined muscles.

His side view also shows more his more sculpted abdomen. Liposuction of the back of his waist  shows that his love handles are much improved, having more of a V shape in the postoperative photograph.

Case 3

This woman was concerned with her lower abdominal bulge. She is 22 years old, has a healthy diet and a consistent exercise routine. Despite this she has a persistent tummy bulge that she has had even as a teenager. She has difficulty finding clothes that fit as her tummy is disproportionate to the rest of her body. She wanted to have liposuction to permanently remove this annoying fat.
