While not a weight loss method or cure for obesity, liposuction can add subtle shape and contour to a targeted area of the body. If you are interested in this type of cosmetic plastic surgery, Dr. Alissa M. Shulman of Sovereign Plastic Surgery in Sarasota, FL, can help you decide if it is right for you.

It’s essential to understand that the results of liposuction will likely be subtle, and therefore it’s important to have reasonable expectations with regard to the surgical outcome. Dr. Shulman can discuss all of this and more during a personal consultation at her office in Sarasota, Florida.

  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Knees
