Liposuction In Toronto

Firm Up Your Flabby Bits

Liposuction, or lipoplasty and liposculpture, is an outpatient procedure that slims and reshapes specific areas of the body. This is done by removing excess fat deposits, thereby improving body contours and proportion.

If you eat well, exercise regularly, are close to or at your ideal weight but can’t get rid of stubborn localized fat, then liposuction might be the solution.

Why get liposuction?

  • You have tried diet and exercise to rid your body of excess fat deposits but found that nothing works.
  • You have excess fat that you want to get rid of. This fat is on your body: arms, waist, hips, thighs. It may also be on your chin and neck.
  • You want fast results that are proven to be safe.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get liposuction?
If you are at a stable weight and are healthy, but still have pockets of stubborn fat, then liposuction may be right for you. Ideally, you should be within 30% of your target weight, have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone.
What areas can I treat?
Liposuction may help you safely remove stubborn, unwanted fat deposits in your:

  • Neck and chin
  • Chest, for men and women
  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Inner knee
  • Ankles
Can I get liposuction if I'm obese?
The results of your surgery, and its safety, will be better if you are at a stable and healthy weight. However, Dr. Levine assesses each patient individually, so even if you are obese you may still be a candidate.
Who is not right for liposuction?
There are a few things to keep in mind when considering liposuction:

  • It is not a treatment for obesity or weight issues.
  • It is not a substitute for proper diet and exercise.
  • It is not a treatment for cellulite.

If you are morbidly obese, suffer from severe depression, body dysmorphia, anorexia nervosa, bulimia or other eating disorders, or have severe health problems that could worsen after surgery, liposuction is not for you. Consult your primary care doctor for a health care plan that will assist you with these types of issues.

How much weight will I lose?
One of the most common things that patients believe is that liposuction is a way to lose weight. You may have researched liposuction and already possess a good deal of information about it. However, if you didn’t get your information directly from a licensed medical doctor, then that information may not be accurate. This is often the reason why many patients think that liposuction is a way to lose weight. Unfortunately, it is not. Liposuction will only eliminate the lumps and bulges of fat that are ruining your body contour. These fat pockets don’t weigh much, so what you’ll lose, at most, is a couple of pounds. You may not even notice a decrease in weight at all after surgery. Liposuction is just for body contouring — not weight loss.
What happens if I gain weight after my surgery?
Maintaining your weight after surgery will prolong your results, which is why ideal candidates are those who are at a stable weight before surgery. Sometimes, gaining weight is unavoidable, though. So, what will happen to your results?

Liposuction permanently removes existing fat from your body. Once those unwanted fat cells have been suctioned out, you’ll never get them back. However, the remaining fat cells in the treated area can still expand, affecting your results. Fortunately, you’ll always be leaner in the treated areas because there are fewer fat cells. In fact, even with additional weight gain after surgery, studies have shown that patients were still satisfied with their results.

Your lifestyle will determine whether your results will become undone. Make sure to follow a healthy diet and exercise plan.

How much fat can I get removed?
The amount of fat you would like to have removed versus the amount of fat you can safely have removed will be discussed in detail during your initial consultation with Dr.Levine. In most cases, less than 5 litres of fat is removed from the treated areas.
Will it hurt?

A 2006 study found that 75% of patients reported mild to moderate levels of discomfort. Tumescent liposuction offers lasting pain relief, so you won’t feel any discomfort shortly after your surgery. Once the anesthesia wears off, you’ll probably be just mildly to moderately uncomfortable. Pain medication will be prescribed which will make your recovery easier.

I just had a baby. Can I get liposuction?
If you recently gave birth, you should wait at least 3 months after delivery before considering plastic surgery. This is to give your body ample time to heal. It is also important to wait until you have stopped breastfeeding for at least 3 months before having liposuction. Hormonal changes that maintain milk supply will also alter a woman’s ability to lose weight during breastfeeding. In many women, a return to normal hormone levels once they have stopped breastfeeding will result in the weight loss they are looking for. Even if weight loss doesn’t happen after you stop breastfeeding, allowing your hormone levels to return to normal will have a profound effect on your liposuction results. Liposuction is often performed with a tummy tuck for your ultimate mommy makeover!
When will I see my results?
You should expect to see results immediately. It will take 4 to 6 months to see the final result.
What are the risks of liposuction?
Risks and complications unique to liposuction may include:

  • Bruising
  • Change in skin sensation that may persist
  • Damage to deeper structures such as nerves, blood vessels, muscles, lungs, and abdominal organs
  • Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications
  • Fluid or blood accumulation
  • Irregular contours or asymmetry
  • Persistent swelling
  • Rippling or loose skin, worsening of cellulite

Many of these complications can be avoided by precisely following Dr. Levine’s pre- and post-operative instructions. Even with the potential risks associated with liposuction, the occurrence of complications is extremely low. In a study of over 3500 liposuction patients, there was no incidence of deep thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, hypotension, or respiratory distress. No hematoma (blood pooling under the skin), or damage to adjacent organs occurred. This makes liposuction a statistically safe procedure for a normally healthy adult.

These risks and others will be fully discussed prior to your consent. It is important that you address all your questions directly with Dr. Levine.

Why Dr. Levine Is The Master Of Liposuction In Toronto

Smoother, firmer results and a more comfortable recovery

Dr. Ronald Levine

Master Cosmetic Surgeon & Professor

Master of Surgery

Dr. Levine applies surgical techniques and methods that are the safest and most effective for his patients. He selects these based on research, conducted not just by other surgeons but by himself as well.
Only offers the gold standard of liposuction
Over the last 40 years, liposuction techniques have changed with innovations in technology. Today, the gold standard for traditional liposuction is the tumescent technique. In this technique, a large amount of diluted anesthesia is injected into the fat before liposuction, making it swell. This allows Dr. Levine a high degree of accuracy while performing your surgery.
It also minimizes any post-surgical rippling of the skin for a smoother improvement. This particular technique also minimizes blood loss, bruising and post-operative soreness because of the type of fluid solution that’s injected into the fat before removal. Tumescent liposuction has been used world-wide to suction out large volumes of fat with minimal post-operative recovery. The fat removed from the body is virtually bloodless.

Dr. Levine does perform other methods of liposuction, such as laser assisted (Vaser), ultrasonic assisted (UAL) and power assisted (PAL).

Remember: Dr. Levine will use a combination of techniques to give you the best possible results. No matter what hype there is over a new technology, it’s all about the surgeon — and with over 35 years of experience performing liposuction with thousands of satisfied patients across the country and around the world, you can trust the expertis of Dr. Levine.

“I first met with Dr. Levine in late September for butt implants. He quickly explained the risks of implants and the better treatment option for me and my body. Dr. Levine was extremely informative and has good bed side manners. He took the time to answer my million questions and not once did I feel rushed, or like I was wasting his time. Christy his office receptionist is amazing!! She is quick to answer my emails and questions. It was a joy to deal with someone that is great at their job and loves what they do. My surgery was October 18th and the surgical team made me so comfortable. The team was so nice and informative, they answered all my questions and made me feel like I was at home. My recover is going famously! I had my stitches removed yesterday and I’m almost back to my normal life. I love my results!!! Thank you so much Dr.Levine and your entire team!!”

“I’ve visited Dr. Levine for three problems: my stomach, breasts and butt. He transformed all three so they’re no longer problems. They’re my favourite parts of my body now. I trust Dr. Levine completely and I highly recommend him to everyone else.”

From Rate MDs

“I did consultations with 4 different doctors before I met Dr. Levine. When I met Dr. Levine, I liked him right away! He was very honest and straight forward. I booked my surgery after 3 weeks for a Tummy tuck and Brazilian but lift. He performed surgery for me in September of 2014. He did a great job! The scar is not noticeable and my bum looks very natural. After one year I decided to do another surgery for a Breast lift. He did a great job! I am 49 years old and my breasts look nice and perky like an 18 year old! This is the first time in my life that I have ever written a comment. I decided to write a comment because I think Dr. Levine is an amazing doctor with great experience. I think sometimes people expect miracles. Before I did surgery with him, I read his comments. Other peoples comments did not effect my decision, I used my own judgement and I am glad I did! I am very happy!”

“Had a breast aug with Dr. Levine. Best decision of my life! They are amazing and I am a 110% satisfied customer. I have been to several other surgeons in Canada and the states, and he is by far the best, hands down. No one has more experience or education than him. I live in BC and will absolutely fly in for my next procedure, he’s worth it.”

“I have been going to Dr. Levine for years as I have skin cancer. He is always very patient, thorough, diligent, and professional. You know you are in the right hands when you go to Dr. Levine! His office staff are also very friendly, well organized, and patient-care focused. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Levine to my family and friends.”

Brenda Glover

“I just completed my second breast augmentation with Dr.Levine. The first one was incredible and exactly what I dreamed about for so long. I had three children and they were still looking incredible!! If it wasn’t for one being encapsulated the first set would have lasted me a lifetime! This time around they look even better (if that’s possible!). I am so incredibly happy with the whole experience every time I visit the office. Christy is such a warm and welcoming person and Dr.Levine is very knowledgeable, direct and skilled. Many people have asked me for his reference and five friends and family members have had their own surgery done with rave reviews as well. Look no further!”
