Gaining weight can lead to pockets of excess fat, which can be effectively addressed with the help of liposuction in Boston. There are many factors that contribute to a person’s weight gain, including lack of proper diet and exercise, genetics and lifestyle. In many cases, some weight gain can be controlled with proper diet and exercise. However, for a significant part of the population, no amount of dieting or exercise will be able to remove excess fatty deposits in the typical ‘trouble’ areas, such as:
- Stomach / waist
- Upper arms
- Back / flanks
- Hips and buttocks
- Cheeks, chin and neck
- Chest area
What Is Liposuction?
Those of us for whom diet and exercise is not enough, liposuction may be the solution for slimming and reshaping these ‘trouble’ areas. Liposuction targets specific areas of the body by removing excess body fat, leaving the treated areas smoother, suppler and in proportion to the rest of your body. Liposuction is not intended for those who are looking to lose massive amounts of weight, but when liposuction is performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as the abdominoplasty, or ‘Tummy Tuck’, the combination can be very effective.
Is Liposuction Right for Me?
It is important to understand what liposuction can do and what it cannot do. Unrealistic expectations of the liposuction procedure can be disappointing and frustrating. Liposuction is not a treatment to remove sagging skin or cellulite and it is not an alternative to healthy diet and exercise.

Excellent, talented, and nice surgeon! I am very happy with the result, I had tummy liposuction done by Dr. Darrow. I did lots of research and asked many people about the best surgeon for liposuction in Boston area and his name always pops out. When I met him he was very honest, answered my questions, addressed my concerns and he told me how my tummy would look like and he recommends the best procedure to achieve that. I felt comfortable and I decided to go with Dr. Darrow. I had the operation at the beginning of May, he was following up with and his staff to check how I was feeling after the operation. The result turns out to be great. Dr. Darrow did a great job, his staff especially Helen is fantastic; she is very cooperative and nice. One thing is worth mentioning, Dr. Darrow is always on time so if your appointment at 12pm, he will see you at 12pm, unlike many surgeons that you stay in the waiting area for 30 minutes or more waiting. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who considering doing tummy tuck, liposuction, etc.
As with any cosmetic enhancement surgery, you should first consider your motivations for surgery to be sure that you’re choosing surgery for yourself and not to fulfill someone else’s’ desires or expectations of you or your body. It is a very personal matter and any decision for surgery should come after careful consideration of all the facts and emotions involved. Contact us today for a consultation.
Liposuction may be a good option for you if you:
- Maintain good physical health and reasonable weight
- Don’t smoke
- Have realistic expectations
- Are frustrated by your attempts at losing specific areas of fatty deposits through diet and exercise
Your consultation at Darrow Cosmetic Surgery will involve a physical examination of your target areas. Dr. Jeffrey Darrow will ask you about your medical history, including past surgeries, current medications, and any underlying conditions that you may have.
You will talk to Dr. Darrow about your expectations and desired results. A personalized treatment plan will be formulated to address your areas of concern. You will be given pre-operative instructions to follow so you can properly prepare for your liposuction surgery.
The Liposuction Procedure
The first step in liposuction is creating marks on the target areas as a guide for the operation. After this, anesthesia will be administered. Small incisions will be created; these will be very tiny and inconspicuous.
A thin cannula will be inserted into the incisions to remove excess fat under the skin via medical suction. With precision and expertise, Dr. Darrow will remove the appropriate amount of fatty tissue to achieve the best results.
Recovery After Liposuction
You may need a few days off to give yourself ample recovery time to heal after the surgery. Bruising, soreness, and swelling may take a few weeks to subside. Pain medications may be prescribed to help with the discomfort. You will also have to wear compression garments for several weeks to help with healing.
You may be able to go back to work after several days, but you will need to avoid performing any physically taxing activities.
The Cost of Liposuction
The cost of liposuction depends on several factors, such as the extent of work done. The overall price will include anesthetics and surgical fees.
