What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that suctions excess fat from areas that have resisted diet and exercise.

  • Inner thighs
  • Anterior thighs
  • Knees
  • Calves
  • Upper arms
  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Chest
  • Axilla
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Flanks (love handles) Outer thighs (saddle bags)

It is often performed as part of abdominoplasty, post-bariatric surgery, mommy makeover, body lift, fat grafting (Brazilian butt lift), and male breast reduction to address gynecomastia.

Dr. Sato brings years of experience and skill to each liposuction procedure she conducts in order to provide the best results possible.

Liposuction Considerations

During your liposuction consultation with Dr. Erika Sato, she will learn more about which areas of your body are concerning you in order to form a plan that is specific to your body.

It is important that patients have realistic expectations, as liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure but instead contours the body for a slimmer, more balanced appearance. Review liposuction before and after photos to develop realistic expectations.

Background and Education

A Missouri native, Dr. Sato was drawn to the field of plastic surgery when she was diagnosed with Binder’s Syndrome as a child. Binder’s syndrome is a rare congenital malformation resulting in undergrowth of the central face and may include elements of the nose and upper jaw. She underwent rhinoplasty surgery as a teenager utilizing cartilage from her right ear to reconstruct her nose. At just 15 years old she experienced how life changing plastic surgery can be, and knew that she wanted to be a plastic surgeon, so that some day she could impact others' lives in a similar manner.
