Liposuction, also known as “lipo,” is a common and popular treatment for those that are unhappy with certain areas of stubborn fat cells and deposits. Learn more about this treatment during a consultation with our team at Old Town Medspa in Chicago, IL!
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a minimally invasive treatment for areas of stubborn fat builds up on your body. This extra fat is removed through a small tube called a cannula. It is specifically targeted and suctioned from the body through this tube with safe, effective, and slimming results.
This treatment is done most commonly using a tumescent technique with the help of ultrasound imaging or laser energy. It is most generally performed as an outpatient treatment using local anesthesia. Tiny incisions are made, the tube is inserted, and the fat is suctioned out.
Who Is A Candidate?
Not everyone is a good fit for liposuction. To qualify as a good candidate, it is recommended that you are in good overall health and have a healthy lifestyle.
It is also important to have realistic expectations of this treatment. Liposuction is meant to be used as a way to help with fat deposits unresponsive to diet, exercise, and other natural weight loss methods. This is not meant for major weight loss, nor can it take the place of diet and exercise.
Which Areas Can Be Treated?
Liposuction can be done on many areas of the body, including but not limited to the following:
- Hips and buttocks
- Upper arms
- Abdomen and waist
- Chest area
- Inner knee
- Calves and ankles
- Cheeks, chin, and neck
What Results Can I Expect?
Most patients see immediate results that make them appear slimmer and more contoured. However, each patient will have different goals. These goals will be discussed at length during a consultation, and a process or timeline will be established according to those goals.
For some, one treatment is all that is needed to achieve their goals. For others, one or more treatments may be necessary.
The results of any treatment can be permanent; however, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Without diet and proper exercise, your body will likely fall into the state it was before your treatments. These treatments do not improve skin tone or firmness. As your body ages, you are likely to see a natural loss in firmness.
If you think you are a good candidate for liposuction and would like to consider the possibilities of a slimmer, more contoured you, contact us today at Old Town Medspa in Chicago, IL for an initial consultation today.

Maureen is exceptional at what she does. When I first started lazer, she relaxed me and described the process. Each time I come, she makes me feel at ease and carries on conversation during the process so it is not as painful. I would love to continue seeing her for other services.
I am very pleased with Old Town Med Spa and the staff there. Maureen is absolutely wonderful and professional....A great experience every time :)
