Micro Liposuction: A Solution for Small Fat Deposits
The approach behind every treatment plan at Graceful Contours is to minimize patient downtime and post-treatment symptoms. For patients who need anti-aging fat removal in their neck and cheeks, or who only need minimal liposuction in other areas of the body, Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez utilize micro liposuction techniques. The smaller cannulas that are used for the procedure allow for the removal of minimal fat while enhancing and preserving natural contours.
What Is Micro Liposuction? How Does It Differ from Other Types of Liposuction?
Like other types of liposuction, micro liposuction safely removes fat from the body to improve the definition of your natural contours. In some cases, though, other types of liposuction may result in removing too much fat, especially in areas where fat stores are very limited. The cannulas for micro liposuction are smaller than standard cannulas and are designed to allow for a delicate and precise removal of fat cells. Micro liposuction may be used in conjunction with other types of liposuction for optimal results.
Micro Liposuction vs. Other Types of Liposuction
When compared to other types of liposuction, the primary advantages of micro liposuction are:
- The ability to remove a minimal volume of fat.
- Precision sculpting of defined areas, such as the face, neck and abdomen.
- Less tissue trauma, thus minimizing downtime and recovery.
- Smaller incisions and scars.
How Does Micro Liposuction Work?
Micro liposuction is the least invasive of our liposuction procedures. Once the treatment area is numbed with local anesthestic, very tiny incisions are made in the skin. The incisions are much smaller than those that are used with other types of liposuction. Your micro liposuction specialist inserts a small fiber through the incision to access the fat cells. The cells are liquefied and suctioned out with a cannula. The cannulas that are used by Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez are specially designed for micro liposuction and working around more delicate features, such as the face and muscle structures.
What Body Areas Can Be Treated with Micro Liposuction?
Micro liposuction is recommended for:
- The neck and facial areas.
- Patients with little fat in the hips, thighs, buttocks and abdomen.
- Removing fat from around the muscles in patients who are very athletic and toned.
How Much Fat Can Be Removed? Can Multiple Areas Be Treated at the Same Time?
Fat on your face and body enhances fullness and give you attractive contours. As such, all the fat should not be removed from any particular area. Based on their experience and expertise with micro liposuction, Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez only remove the volume of fat that is needed to achieve a more youthful, healthy, and toned appearance. In many cases, multiple areas are treated to ensure a natural overall appearance.

Where Is Micro Liposuction Performed?
Micro liposuction is an outpatient procedure that is performed in our office. We have all of the necessary medical equipment and advanced technologies that are needed to safely perform micro liposuction, as well as a fully-trained clinical staff. After your procedure, you will spend a few hours in our recovery area before being released to go home.
How Soon Will I See the Results? What Is the Recovery Time?
Micro liposuction offers subtle changes to your face and body that can only be achieved by removing smaller deposits of fat. If the procedure is performed without other types of liposuction, you may need to wait for the swelling to subside before you see results. If Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez perform micro liposuction in conjunction with other types of liposuction, you will see immediate improvements. Recovery from micro liposuction typically takes 1 week, but when the procedure is performed alongside other types of liposuction, your full recovery may take 1 to 3 months.
