Liposuction Before & Afters



Remove Excess Fat, Shape Body Contours

By this point, it becomes evident that maintaining good health and appearing healthy are distinct ideas. For the vast number of individuals who diligently engage in exercise and follow a balanced diet yet haven’t attained their desired outcomes, there exists hope through a plastic surgery procedure called liposuction. Many Chicago liposuction patients successfully realize their body contouring objectives with this reliable and secure procedure. At Shifrin Plastic Surgery, we present a range of liposuction alternatives tailored to accommodate your specific requirements. Our practice firmly believes in avoiding a one-size-fits-all approach and prioritizes personalized solutions for each individual.

What are the Benefits of Liposuction?

Liposuction, performed by Dr. Shifrin at Shifrin Plastic Surgery, offers numerous advantages for enhancing the quality of life and achieving a more contoured physique. Benefits of liposuction by body area may include:

  • Improved body proportions and silhouette
  • Reduction of stubborn fat pockets
  • Enhanced self-confidence and self-image
  • Smoother and more sculpted contours

Am I a candidate for Liposuction?

Ideal candidates for Liposuction are individuals seeking to eliminate localized fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise. Suitable candidates should be in overall good health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes. Contraindications may include certain medical conditions or individuals with significant health issues that may impact surgery.


Tumescent Liposuction

The tumescent technique involves the infusion of local anesthesia, saline solution, and adrenaline into the targeted treatment area. Through this approach, Dr. Shifrin gains the ability to skillfully employ a minor cannula, which is linked to a vacuum apparatus, in order to remove surplus fat and enhance body contour.

Power Assisted Liposuction

Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) introduces a novel technological approach in which the suction cannula’s tip undergoes rapid vibrations. This vibrating motion effectively loosens fat cells, enabling their gentle removal with reduced trauma to surrounding tissues. PAL is skillfully combined with tumescent methods, optimizing fat removal efficiency, enhancing comfort and minimizing bruising for our patients. Compared to traditional liposuction methods, PAL encompasses shorter procedures, diminished swelling and bruising, accelerated recovery, precise and uniform contouring, as well as an overall improvement in safety.

Ultrasonic Liposuction

Ultrasonically-assisted liposuction (UAL) serves as a valuable addition to conventional liposuction methods. By utilizing ultrasonic energy, UAL effectively targets and disintegrates stubborn fat deposits that are challenging to suction. Subsequently, traditional liposuction techniques are employed to remove unwanted fat. This approach proves particularly beneficial in treating difficult areas, addressing previously treated regions with tough scar tissue, and addressing fibrous, resilient fat pockets often found in the chests of male gynecomastia patients.


Introducing Smartlipo, a groundbreaking body contouring advancement that caters to physically active individuals in the Chicago area seeking an effective and minimally invasive liposuction treatment. Smartlipo incorporates the innovative ‘laser lipolysis’ technology to target and eliminate fat cells. Through a thin tube or cannula, laser energy is precisely delivered to areas with fatty deposits, causing the fat cells to rupture and liquefy resulting in a permanently improved contour.

Moreover, this laser energy not only aids in fat removal but also contributes to reduced swelling and bruising, which are common side effects associated with traditional liposuction. Additionally, the technology promotes skin tightening and toning by heating the underlying dermis, further enhancing the overall outcome. Smartlipo represents a remarkable solution that fulfills the desires of health-conscious individuals seeking a successful and less invasive approach to liposuction.

Liposuction for Your Lifestyle

Although liposuction in Chicago is not intended to replace healthy lifestyle choices like regular exercise and a balanced diet, it does offer aesthetic enhancements and an improved sense of well-being. Dr. Shifrin employs a cannula during the procedure to effectively target and remove stubborn fat deposits. The process involves only minor incisions, and contemporary techniques contribute to minimizing post-operative swelling and discoloration.

Additionally, certain Chicago liposuction patients might also be introduced to fat grafting, a procedure that utilizes the extracted fat from liposuction to enhance volume and fullness, and improve shape in other parts of the body. Autologous fat transfer proves especially beneficial for women seeking liposuction along with buttocks reshaping, providing an appealing and viable solution for their desires.

The Liposuction Procedure

The liposuction procedure at Shifrin Plastic Surgery involves tumescent anesthesia, which numbs the targeted area and minimizes discomfort during the surgery. Dr. Shifrin will then make tiny incisions to insert a thin cannula, gently suctioning out excess fat cells to sculpt the desired contours. The length of the procedure depends on the extent of treatment and the areas being addressed.

Liposuction Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Patients may notice initial improvements shortly after the procedure, with gradual refinement over the following weeks and months. Patients are advised to wear compression garments post-treatment to support healing and reduce swelling. Downtime can vary based on the extent of Liposuction, but most individuals can resume light activities within a few days and gradually return to normal routines. Incision care and scar prevention are typically addressed during follow-up appointments.


Each liposuction procedure is tailored to the individual patient’s needs and goals. Costs can vary depending on the areas treated, the technique used, and whether additional procedures are combined. The total cost typically includes surgical fees, anesthesia, and facility fees. For precise pricing, a consultation with Dr. Shifrin is necessary.

How much weight can you lose with Liposuction?

Liposuction is not intended as a weight loss solution but rather as a body contouring procedure to address stubborn fat pockets. The amount of fat removed during liposuction is generally modest and not aimed at significant weight reduction. Instead, the primary goal is to sculpt and enhance the body’s contours, providing a more proportionate and toned appearance.

Can Liposuction get rid of belly fat?

Yes, liposuction can effectively target and remove stubborn belly fat, helping to achieve a flatter and more contoured abdominal area.

What is the best age for Liposuction?

The best age for liposuction varies for each individual, and candidacy is primarily determined by factors such as overall health, skin elasticity, and personal goals. A consultation with Dr. Shifrin can help determine if liposuction is appropriate and beneficial for each patient.
