Am I a Good Candidate for This Procedure?

SAFE Liposuction

Dr. Jessica Shih employs the advanced SAFE liposuction method at The MedSpa of Burlington Plastic Surgery, surpassing conventional surgical body-contouring procedures by a mile. “SAFE” denotes three stages – Separation, Aspiration and Fat Equalization – that ensure smoother outcomes with minimal injury and quicker recuperation time for an authentic appearance


To begin the fat removal process, Dr. Jessica Shih first administers local anesthesia to numb the specific regions targeted for treatment. Using a probing device that delicately separates and releases fat cells from surrounding tissues and structures, she expertly performs this step without inflicting any harm or damage. Unlike other methods which utilize heat or laser energy to loosen fat cells, Dr. Shih’s technique is completely free of such modalities.


Next, a delicate suction method is employed to remove the loosened fat cells. As your undesired adipose tissues have been isolated from their adjacent structures beforehand, Dr. Jessica Shih can easily extract them through aspiration. This facilitates a less distressing procedure with a comparatively soothing recuperation phase.

Fat Equalization

Dr. Jessica Shih’s last phase of the SAFE liposuction process involves pinpointing any lingering subcutaneous fat cells by utilizing a probe that evens out the remaining fatty tissue, resulting in more seamless and organic-looking outcomes. By implementing this ultimate step, Dr. Jessica Shih can effectively manipulate, shape and refine your under-skin fatty deposits to meet desired specifications.
Through the redistribution of fat cells, the process of fat equalization aids in preventing contour irregularities by ensuring smooth transitions. Compared to conventional methods for reducing fats, this approach significantly minimizes the development of bumpy or uneven skin texture.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Liposuction?

Surgical fat removal through liposuction is a method that enhances your physical shape by getting rid of excess body fat from targeted regions like the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks and arms. In case you have areas with obstinate fats that do not decrease despite efforts in diet or exercise regimen, then undergoing surgical intervention for body shaping may be worth considering. After surgery, maintaining healthy living habits can help keep the effects long-lasting.

How can Liposuction Be Enhanced?

Simply performing liposuction does not effectively tighten the skin on its own. However, by incorporating cutting-edge radiofrequency-based skin tightening techniques like BodyTite and Morpheus8 Body, you can optimize your results by enhancing the tightness of your skin after undergoing fat reduction via liposuction.

Can Liposuction be performed under local anesthesia?

Depending on the stubborn fat’s location and size, liposuction can be conducted under local anesthesia. Moreover, BodyTite liposuction along with Morpheus8 Body may also be executed using local anesthesia to achieve better results by tightening the skin further. To determine if you’re a suitable candidate for undergoing such surgery locally, it is recommended that you consult Dr. Jessica Shih.

What To Expect After Surgical Fat Reduction?

Compared to conventional fat reduction methods, the recuperation and healing phase after SAFE liposuction is typically swifter and more seamless. However, it is strongly recommended that you refrain from engaging in arduous tasks for at least a week. Wearing compression garments post-operation can maximize your outcomes. You may be able to resume work and routine activities roughly seven days following the procedure.

Typically, the effects of your surgery will manifest within a period ranging from one to three months. When surgical means are used to eliminate undesired adipose cells, they cannot return or regenerate. The outcomes are expected to be enduring and sustainable as long as you avoid significant weight gain for maintenance purposes.

Are You a Good Candidate for Surgical Fat Reduction?

Those who struggle with resistant fat in specific areas despite diet and exercise are the best candidates for surgical removal. If lifestyle modifications fail to produce desired results, opting for a low recovery time surgery could be worth considering. Surgery can help you attain your long-desired streamlined physique.
