It can be frustrating when fat around your tummy, hips, arms, and legs just won't budge, even with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Dr. Sutton Graham in Greenville, SC, can help you eliminate stubborn fat and achieve slimmer, sexier contours with liposuction.

Reach out to our expert plastic surgeon to discuss this life-changing procedure.

The Basics of Liposuction

Liposuction is an immensely popular body contouring surgery that is performed to permanently remove up to 10 pounds of fat that will not go away with diet and exercise alone. 

During the minimally invasive procedure, our surgeon inserts a specialized instrument known as a cannula through small, precisely made incisions. The cannula is then used to gently suction out fat cells to slim and reshape the area, leading to more pleasing contours.

Liposuction Can Improve Many Areas

We Accept Financing


Liposuction is considered a cosmetic procedure, meaning it is not covered by insurance. To aid in affordability, we accept third-party financing through CareCredit®, allowing you to split payments into low or even no interest monthly installments.

Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction? Factors to Consider

You Are a Healthy Non-Smoker

The best candidates for any type of plastic surgery are non-smokers with good overall health. While your BMI does not determine your candidacy alone, the procedure tends to work best for patients within a healthy BMI range.

You're at a Healthy Weight

Lipo should not be performed if you are pregnant or intend to lose a substantial amount of weight. Weight loss can cause your skin to lose elasticity, especially when it happens quickly. While lipo will not address sagging skin, it can help you improve the proportions of your figure after weight loss and can be incredibly beneficial when combined with other types of plastic surgery.

You Have Realistic Expectations

It is important that you have realistic expectations for the procedure and are choosing cosmetic surgery for the right reasons. Liposuction procedures can achieve incredible results, but it is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle and will not magically cure all your body insecurities.

Your Treatment Timeline

Our patients in the Greater Asheville and Spartanburg areas will undergo liposuction as an outpatient procedure at our Greenville surgical center. The surgery can take anywhere from one to four hours to complete and involves several steps:

Removing excess fat can encourage better lifestyle habits in the future.

We begin by administering a local or general anesthetic, so you do not feel any pain throughout the surgery.


Our plastic surgeon will make careful incisions in the targeted area and inject a solution of anesthetic and saline to help break up the fat cells. 


Next, we insert a narrow tube called a cannula and suction out the fat deposits. 

Finishing Touches

Once the desired amount of fat has been removed, we will close your incisions. After you wake up from the anesthesia and are monitored for a brief period, you will be released home to recover. 

Recovery and Results

Liposuction model

Our Greenville surgical team will give you detailed instructions for managing pain and side effects after your treatment. We advise you to wear post-operative compression garments for several weeks to improve circulation and ensure the best aesthetic results. Most people can return to work within one to two weeks after the procedure and can resume exercise after about six weeks. Our team will let you know when it's safe to return to certain activities and when to remove compression garments.

Results become more easily visible over the first several weeks after treatment, when you’ll notice clothes fitting differently. The final results can take months to appear. To best maintain your results, it is important to practice a healthy lifestyle, get regular exercise, and eat a nutritious diet.
