5 Liposuction Before-and-After Stories (And How to Get the Same Results)

What’s the one thing about your body that frustrates you?

For some, it’s, “having no butt!”. For others, it’s saggy breasts. Plenty of people have areas where those stubborn pockets of fat just won’t go away. We’re talking about love handles, muffin tops, bra rolls, and thigh fat.

For men, it’s often the extra fat in the chest area.

The wonderful news is that you can get the body shape you want, despite the stubbornness of some fat deposits in the body, through liposuction.

With a number of liposuction treatments to choose from, feeling overwhelmed about which might be best for you is not uncommon. At 77 Plastic Surgery, we encourage everyone considering liposuction to discern facts from misinformation before deciding on treatment.

To help you get started, we’ve come up with a few liposuction before-and-after stories that you can learn from. The more diligent research you do before the procedure, the greater the likelihood of getting the most stunning outcomes possible!

Two More Quick Questions

5 Impressive Liposuction Results to Learn From - With Before and After Photos

Reviewing before-and-after photos is a good starting point to help narrow down the type of liposuction you need. It also makes sense if you review stories and photographs of patients that have the same (or as close as possible) age, gender, ethnicity, and body measurements.

We hope that these stories from actual patients at our practice in San Francisco will help make liposuction less confusing and help inspire the results you've envisioned for yourself!

Case Study #1: Miss P's Abdominal Liposuction


Even right after, I could see a significant difference. And the result has only gotten better over time. I wish everyone who struggles with their body image could do this!

  • Patient Age: 29
  • Gender: Female
  • Ethnicity: East Indian
  • Height: 5'4"
  • Weight: 120 lbs

On her first visit at our practice, Miss P already knew what she wanted from liposuction. She wasn’t seeking a complete overhaul, she simply wanted to look better when wearing a fitted dress. Yet, her bulging belly was getting in the way.

After careful assessment of her existing body frame and evaluating her goals, Dr. Fan performed liposuction on Miss P’s abdomen, waist, and bra rolls. In Miss P’s case, it was the skill and experience of Dr. Fan that mattered the most in helping her accomplish dramatic, spectacular results.

Case Study # 2: Mr. M’s Liposuction After Massive Weight Loss


I lost 50 pounds prior to my procedure but couldn't lose any more weight. I decided to get lipo to help look even slimmer. I'm very happy with my decision. I may not look perfect, but I look and feel great!

  • Patient Age: 32
  • Gender: Male
  • Ethnicity: Middle Eastern
  • Height: 5'10"
  • Weight: 225 lbs

Mr. P had been toying with the idea of liposuction after losing a great deal of body weight through diet and exercise. For him, liposuction was the best solution for the flabby stomach he still had after massive weight loss.

Following his face-to-face consultation with Dr. Fan, we encouraged Mr. P to have both liposuction and a tummy tuck to address his concerns. Mr. P, however, declined the tummy tuck idea but was keen to have liposuction. We later explained to him that Dr. Fan could perform the liposuction, but his issue with excess abdominal skin could not be remedied with liposuction alone. He was okay with that, and 4,800cc of fat was removed from his abdomen and surrounding flanks.

From this case study, it is worth noting that liposuction is not a treatment for obesity, excess body weight, or loose skin after weight loss.

Case Study # 3: Miss F’s Neck Liposuction


Droopy necks run in my family. I'm very happy that I was able to get rid of the family trait!

  • Patient Age: 29
  • Gender: Female
  • Ethnicity: Caucasian
  • Height: 5'4"
  • Weight: 130 lbs

Miss F initially scheduled a consultation with Dr. Fan because she was frustrated with her sagging neck and jawline that seemed to run in her family.

Despite Miss F’s diligent anti-aging routine, nothing was working when it came to slowing down the appearance of fat on the bottom part of her face. While she may have lost the genetic lottery in terms of neck fat accumulation, Miss F’s saving grace was the good skin elasticity she had in the neck area. This made her a good candidate for neck liposuction.

After the procedure, Miss F came back to us for her follow-up consultation and was extremely pleased with the natural-looking outcomes.

Case Study # 4: Miss B’s Ankle Liposuction


I've always had nice legs, but my ankles always bothered me. Dr. Fan's delicate skill helped me feel less self-conscious about my thick ankles.

There was only one thing that Miss B, a healthy and fit 24-year old, wanted to change in her body— her thick ankles.

She was having a hard time finding a surgeon with the right skill and technical precision to perform liposuction in the area. Apart from the fact that the lower legs don't have deep fat compartments, this type of procedure is trickier to perform because the area behind the knee houses blood vessels and nerves that are prone to nerve injury.

After careful planning with Dr. Fan, Miss B underwent liposuction of the ankles and calves while awake under local anesthesia. A total of 400cc of fat was removed.

It’s also worth noting that careful patient selection by the surgeon is a must in ankle liposuction. Not everyone is a good candidate for the procedure.

Case Study # 5: Miss L’s Liposuction with Brazillian Butt Lift


I was tired of my flat Asian butt. Now I feel so sexy. Thank you, Dr. Fan!

Miss L initially wanted to have a larger, fuller butt. After careful assessment and discussion of the pros and cons of different buttock enhancement procedures with Dr. Fan, Miss L decided on a Brazilian butt lift.

Excess fat was harvested from her waistline through liposuction, meticulously processed, and reinjected to her buttocks. If you’re like Miss L who wants to hit two birds with one stone, you can reshape your body not just with fat transfer for butt enhancement but also with liposuction.

How to Get the Same Stellar Liposuction Results

To attain stunning and natural results from liposuction, it's important to pin down the specific issues that you want to address. A face-to-face consultation, complemented with research on your end, is an excellent starting point.

Also, you have to understand that the best liposuction results are accomplished when your fat deposits are localized, you are within normal body weight, and have good skin elasticity in your areas of concern. Often, poor skin elasticity will result in unsatisfactory outcomes.

You should also make an effort to stick to a healthy diet and an exercise regimen before and after your surgery. This will boost the aesthetics and longevity of your liposuction results.
