Since liposuction can remove excess fat from any targeted part of the body, it’s a procedure of choice among many cosmetic surgeons and patients. Dr. Jude LaBarbera uses liposuction to help achieve contour improvements in the upper arms, face, neck, abdomen, and other areas of the body.
Although liposuction is very popular with patients who are looking to achieve a slimmer contour, it’s not an appropriate method for achieving weight loss. Dr. LaBarbera and many Scottsdale, AZ liposuction surgeons recommend that individuals receiving this procedure should be at or near a stabilized weight.
Ideal Candidates for Liposuction
You may be an ideal candidate for liposuction if:
- You are an adult within 30% of your ideal weight, and with a firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone
- You can’t seem to lose stubborn fat in various trouble areas
- You have specific areas of the body that appear disproportionate
- You are a healthy individual with no life-threatening illness or medical condition that can impede healing
- Dieting and exercising don’t seem to be working to help tone your body or lose weight

The cost of liposuction in Phoenix varies widely from one patient to the other – usually depending on the extent of work, area of the body, and surgical technique that needs to be used. If liposuction is performed in conjunction with another procedure, the price can vary significantly. Since liposuction is a cosmetic procedure, it’s not typically covered by insurance.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The goal of liposuction is to remove excessive fat in trouble areas (thus improving the shape and contouring). It does not address the drooping or sagging skin that may be left behind. If skin laxity is a problem, patients are advised to talk to their cosmetic surgeon during their consultation visit. Options for improving skin texture such as tummy tuck, thigh lift, neck lift, arm, and butt lifts are available.
