  • My Body Looks Great, I'm so Happy with the Results

  • Liposuction

    Sometimes simply called “lipo,” liposuction is a procedure aimed at slimming and reshaping specific areas of the body. During this procedure, we remove excess fat deposits and improve the body contours and proportion. Liposuction is not used for weight loss, but rather to enhance the contours of the body. Dr. Howard Holderness may recommend liposuction if you are interested in reducing fat deposits and slimming areas such as the:

    Waist and abdomen

    Chest area



    Inner knee

    Hips and buttocks

    Calves and ankles


    Upper arms

    Cheeks, chin, and neck

    These areas, especially the thighs, abdomen, and flanks, can prevent clothing from fitting well and give your body an out-of-proportion look if they are affected by excess fat deposits. While diet and exercise can help, certain body areas are stubborn and will not conform to your ideal, no matter what diet or exercise regimen you try. In these cases, our plastic surgeon may recommend liposuction in Greensboro, North Carolina, to help you achieve the look you desire. 

    Depending on your specific needs and desires, liposuction may be performed alone, or we may suggest combining this treatment with another procedure such as a facelift, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), or breast reduction, for enhanced results.
