Liposuction Body Sculpting

Liposuction Surgery

To this day, liposuction continues to be the gold standard in surgical body contouring, and is one of the most popular procedures year after year nationwide. A commonly sought-after cosmetic procedure among Maryland men and women alike, liposuction (also known as lipo) offers safe and effective sculpting for a toned, sleek look.

Sometimes, no matter how much you diet and exercise, stubborn fat pockets can affect your physique. They can collect in your abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, and other problem areas. By using a narrow cannula to remove unwanted fat cells, liposuction offers targeted contouring for an improved body appearance. Frederick cosmetic surgeon Dr. Henry Garazo offers precise body sculpting with liposuction to his patients in the Hagerstown, Maryland area.

“I recently had Neck/Chin liposuction with Dr. Garazo and I could not be more thrilled with my results and it has only been 2 weeks. Dr. Garazo and his entire staff were amazing, kind, and caring. If you have been on the fence about doing a procedure, just go for it, you are in great hands!” – Real liposuction patient review, June 2023

Tumescent technique: no anesthesia needed

Using tumescent liposuction, Dr. Garazo provides optimal liposuction results with minimal discomfort and reduced recovery time. Tumescent liposuction uses a diluted solution of local anesthetic and other medications in the target areas to remove excess fat without the need for general anesthesia. This time-tested technique offers unsurpassed safety, excellent control, and optimal cosmetic results.

Benefits of liposuction

The benefits of tumescent liposuction include:

  • It has the ability to remove fat deposits and sculpt an improved shape to most areas of the body—chin, neck, or knees as well as the tummy—with excellent precision.
  • It is a gentle procedure that typically requires local anesthesia only.

Am I a candidate for liposuction surgery?

The best candidates for liposuction surgery include men and women unhappy with stubborn fat deposits. They are healthy, have good skin elasticity, and are within 30% of their ideal weight. Liposuction is not a weight loss plan, but a positive body contouring tool. Liposuction provides a smoother, more shapely look to those problem body areas.

What areas can liposuction treat?

Liposuction can safely and effectively remove fat from the following areas of the body:

  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Calves
  • Ankles
  • Under the chin


One of the benefits of liposuction is that it offers fat removal results that are permanent, provided the patient maintains a stable weight. For a more complete rejuvenation, liposuction can be performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures, such as breast augmentation, or body contouring procedures, such as a tummy tuck. Mommy makeover patients can also complete their mommy makeover with liposuction.

“Such a warm-welcoming place from the moment you walk in the door! The staff and Doctor are friendly and knowledgeable, they provided step by step for the procedure I was getting done which caused me to be calm and excited for it rather than nervous, everything has been going perfect from the surgery to the healing! They went beyond of what I expected. They followed up and were easy to contact when needing assistance with something. Definitely recommend getting cosmetic surgery and the other services they provide, done here! You won’t be disappointed! I can’t say enough good things about this place.” – Real patient review, June 2023
