Both men and women in Toronto continue to find liposuction to be one of the most appealing aspects of cosmetic surgery. This is due to the fact that it is usual to have “problem” areas that just won’t go away, regardless of how fit you are or how conscientious you are with your diet.

Benefits Of Liposuction In Toronto
Liposuction is known for its immense amount of benefits and it has been utilized by men and women for decades. That said, it’s important to remember that the liposuction process is not a method of weight loss but more for aesthetic and cosmetic reasons.
People who are already at or very close to their ideal weight but are concerned about fat deposits that are resistant to good lifestyle choices are ideal candidates for this treatment. A lot of the time, genetics can also play a part. Your reasons for wanting liposuction are as individual as your body, however the following are some of the most common reasons why Dr. DuPéré conducts this procedure:
- To create a slimmer, more toned contour in regions such as the abdomen, waist, thighs, back, and arms.
- To enhance the body’s natural proportions and contours.
- To create definition in the jawline and the neck.
- To get rid of the fatty deposits that refuse to go away even after a big weight loss.
How Can Liposuction Help?
This procedure provides a more defined, more athletic, and sexier body by:
- Selectively removing fat
- Providing more of an hourglass shape for women
- Restoring the V shape of the male torso
- Creating sexier lines in the legs
- Sculpting the buttocks for a firmer and fuller appearance
- Flattening the abdomen
- Correcting a double chin
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that removes fat deposits that resist diet and exercise. With tiny, easily hidden incisions and a relatively quick downtime, you could get rid of that stubborn fat bulge for good! Sculpting (and etching!) the abdomen, “love handles”, thighs, back of the arms and more can make your clothing fit more comfortably and form-fitting swimwear or gym clothes, fun to show off.
If you are concerned about fat on the neck that creates a double chin, you may also be a good candidate for non-surgical BELKYRA™ injections. Dr. DuPéré can help you determine which is best for your needs.
Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?
Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure but rather a sculpting technique to provide more attractive, sexier contours. It is most suitable for people who are committed to staying in shape via good nutrition and regular exercise. Overweight patients and those who have experienced significant weight loss may need a combination of liposuction and skin excision procedures. Individuals with a condition called lipedema, characterized by excessive fat accumulation in the lower extremities, may undergo larger-volume liposuction in stages.
Many people struggle with uneven bulges. Find out what liposuction can do for your figure and your confidence. This is one of our most in-demand and satisfying contouring surgeries. Liposuction benefits include fast recovery time and virtually invisible incisions. Call for your consultation and get ready to change how you feel about your shape.
Dr. DuPéré’s Liposuction Techniques
Liposuction and liposculpting use several specially tipped cannulas to shape the various parts of the body. Common areas include the neck, arms, abdomen, love handles, back and bra rolls, buttocks, hips, outer and inner thighs, inner knees, and calves.
Dr. DuPéré’s experience with various technologies — including suction-assisted liposuction (SAL), ultrasonic, VASER®, power-assisted liposuction (PAL), Smartlipo™, and BodyTite™ — has given him the wisdom to choose the tool that works best for a patient’s unique needs.
Prior to the procedure, Dr. DuPéré makes detailed markings on the patient. Most procedures take place under full general anesthesia, although the doctor can also treat specific areas such as the neck or the inner knees under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. The procedure starts with a tumescent solution, a technique that has revolutionized our liposuction procedures. A tumescent solution is a mixture of diluted local anesthetics with a small amount of adrenaline (epinephrine). The adrenaline temporarily shrinks the blood vessels and leads to less bruising, allowing Dr. DuPéré to remove more unwanted fat safely. In Canada, removing up to 5,000 ml at a time is considered safe.
The painter is the one who creates a masterpiece — not the brush. Make sure your plastic surgeon is an artist and uses sound and safe principles. Liposuction is a very safe and rewarding procedure when performed by qualified plastic surgeons.
Benefits of SAFELipo
Dr. DuPéré also applies the principles of SAFELipo, popularized by Dr. Simeon Wall, Jr., in the United States. This 3-step technique consists of fat separation, aspiration, and equalization. The use of a special exploded-basket cannula is required. This technique allows Dr. DuPéré to leave some micrografts of fat and stem cells in place, which helps prevent contour deformity. That makes SAFELipo a predictable and safe technique.
Dr. DuPéré often performs liposuction to complement other procedures, including:
- Facelift and neck lift
- Tummy tuck
- Buttock lift and shaping
- Post weight loss procedures
- Breast lift and breast reduction
Dr. DuPéré also commonly performs muscle etching along with liposuction procedures.
The majority of liposuction patients go home the day of their procedure. Most can return to desk work after 5 to 10 days.
Dr. DuPéré recommends that his liposuction patients wear a compression garment for about 4 weeks after their procedure for better results.
Lymphatic drainage can also help speed your recovery, and our registered massage therapist can also help you speed things along.
Risks and Complications
Every surgery comes with potential risks. Though serious complications are rare, Dr. DuPéré educates all liposuction patients about risks such as: scarring, opening of the wound, temporary discomfort , bleeding and bruising around the surgical sites, loss of sensation over the surgical site and around the scar, fluid accumulation (seroma and hematomas), infection, nerve and vessel injury, skin necrosis, fat embolism, deep vein thrombosis, contour asymmetry, and skin surface irregularity.
What Should I Expect On Our First Meeting Together?
During your first consultation with Dr. DuPéré, you will discuss your objectives, as well as whether or not liposuction can help you achieve those goals. Be sure to have all of your inquiries and concerns prepared, as Dr. DuPéré will be more than pleased to assist you in obtaining answers to any and all of them.
How Much Weight Can I Expect To Lose After Having Liposuction Done?
It is essential that you are aware that liposuction is not a technique that aids in weight loss. Lipo is not going to result in a significant weight loss and is instead going to be used to contour the physique.
After My Liposuction Procedure, What Should I Expect?
Following your surgery, you should anticipate experiencing bruising, swelling, and discomfort in the parts of your body that had liposuction done. Following surgery, you will be required to wear a compression garment for a period of six weeks or until Dr. DuPéré has allowed you to stop wearing them.
Why Do People Get Liposuction Done?
The primary objective of liposuction is not to lessen overall body weight but rather to alter one or more parts of your body. The “problem” parts of the body that do not respond well to changes in diet and exercise are the typical targets of liposuction. In women, these areas are typically located on the outer thighs and hips, but in men, they are typically located on the waist and the back. A number of locations, including the face, neck, belly, back, buttocks, legs, and upper arms, are frequently treated as well.
The treatments of liposuction and other forms of cosmetic surgery, such as abdominoplasty, breast reduction, and facelift, are sometimes performed in conjunction with one another.
That said, the treatment of obesity does not involve liposuction and cellulite as well as stretch marks are not going to disappear using this method.
How Well Does Liposuction Work?
In most cases, liposuction is an extremely successful method for eliminating fat deposits from localized locations. However, if you gain weight after undergoing liposuction, the fatty bulges that were removed are likely to resurface, and they may even occur in a different part of the body.
Almost immediately after surgery, patients are able to observe a certain degree of improvement in their body contour, and this progress may continue for several weeks or even months as the swelling goes down. It may take anything from a few months to a year before you can see the full results of having liposuction done.
In most cases, liposuction will not result in a tightening of the skin over the treated area. When fat is removed from an area, the skin that surrounds it may become slightly lax after the procedure. It is possible that the skin will not begin to tighten around the treated area for up to six months. The skin of certain individuals is highly elastic and can retract more quickly than that of other individuals. In general, younger skin has a higher level of flexibility than older skin does.
That said, those who go into liposuction with the expectation that it will speed up their weight loss are almost always let down.
What Can You Do To Prolong Your Liposuction Results?
Liposuction is not a suitable replacement for regular exercise and a healthy diet if your goal is to reduce your body fat percentage. In point of fact, the vast majority of plastic surgeons are in agreement that the ideal candidates for liposuction are individuals who are in generally good health and are either already at or very near to their ideal weight, but who have fat deposits that do not respond to exercise. After having liposuction, maintaining a healthy weight, adhering to a nutritious diet, and engaging in regular exercise can help ensure that the results of the treatment are long lasting. When patients who have had liposuction and then gain weight, the fatty bulges that were removed during the procedure frequently reappear and for that reason following healthy habits after the surgery can be highly beneficial.Back to Top
