Stubborn fat that accumulates around the abdomen, flanks, hips and thighs, often does not respond to diet and exercise alone. Fortunately, liposuction can remove fat from those trouble spots.
Dr. Lindsey Webb, located in Atlanta, Georgia has helped patients throughout the Southeast and the greater Atlanta area achieve the sculpted physique they desire with liposuction.
Subcutaneous fat which is the fat deposits under the skin is everywhere on the body. Unfortunately, this type of fat is notoriously difficult to lose! Liposuction targets and gently eliminates this excess and unwanted fat to restore your natural contours from the back, belly, inner thighs, arms and even underneath the chin. The goal of liposuction is not to remove every last bit of fat. We want to remove the disproportionate or excess fat so that we can create balance in your body and proportions. Just as no two patients or bodies are the same, your liposuction surgery plan will be unique to you and your personal goals.
Liposuction is an FDA-approved fat elimination procedure that can be performed on multiple areas of the body that have become resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. Webb performs liposuction with today’s most advanced techniques that help minimize pain and encourage skin tightening, which translates to beautiful results and shorter recovery times for her patients.
If you have stubborn fat that takes away from the smooth contours of your figure, liposuction is a safe, targeted way to reveal the natural beauty of your physique.
Modern liposuction is performed typically under general anesthesia with a slim hollow tube known as a cannula, tumescent fluid, and a few small, well-placed incisions. Tumescent fluid is a saline solution containing lidocaine and epinephrine. Lidocaine acts as a local anesthetic, while epinephrine constricts blood vessels to minimize bleeding and bruising. Dr. Webb then uses the cannula to aspirate and extract your subcutaneous fat gently from your body through well-disguised 5mm incisions. She will sculpt the treated area into your preferred contours as she eliminates your unwanted fat. Once the fat cells are eliminated from the body, the fat does not return in the same way. Another added benefit is that the fat removed can be processed and transferred to another area of your body to augment the buttocks or cheeks during the same procedure!
Dr. Webb has years of training and experience using liposuction to sculpt these areas:
Dr. Webb will take time to get to know you and your goals for your appearance so that she can tailor your liposuction surgery to your desired aesthetic outcome. If you have fat that you have not been able to lose from diet and exercise, liposuction will reveal your best form and help you enjoy your ideal, healthy figure.
The best candidates are individuals of average weight and who already maintain a relatively healthy lifestyle. Liposuction is not a ‘quick fix’ solution for excess weight but is more of a body contouring procedure to enhance and sculpt the silhouette. You may be a good candidate if you:
Candidates for liposuction should be in good health and have a positive but realistic expectation for what liposuction can achieve. Dr. Webb will walk you through the surgical process and customization options available during a private, informative liposuction consultation.
Ideal candidates for liposuction will have a healthy degree of skin laxity. Liposuction is not however intended to treat loose or excess skin on the body. If there is sagging skin after weight loss or stretched skin post-pregnancy, a tummy tuck or skin reduction surgery will address the loose skin and restore smooth, tight body contours. Liposuction is often paired with body lifting procedures to deliver the slim, flattering physique patients desire.
Dr. Webb eliminates fat and sculpts the body with liposuction often in combination with other procedures like tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) or breast reduction. Patients can also optimize their procedure and results with today’s most advanced liposuction techniques. Dr. Webb will discuss these techniques and the benefits they offer during your private consult.
Dr. Webb offers Power-Assisted Liposuction and uses it every week. During power-assisted liposuction, a vibrating cannula is used to gently break away the fat cells, making them easier to extract from the body. This technique is less traumatic for the body tissue and tends to result in less swelling and bruising for patients than traditional techniques.
Laser-Assisted Liposuction (known by trade names like SmartLipo or SlimLipo) uses thermal energy to disrupt the fat cells for gentle removal and is especially helpful for skin tightening. When patients have had previous abdominal cosmetic procedures and have contour irregularities from scarring, the laser helps release tissue and smooth and tighten the appearance of the skin.
Thanks to her careful, expert technique, Dr. Webb’s patients enjoy a shorter, more comfortable recovery from liposuction. Personalized recovery instructions are always provided to help patients recover and achieve their best results.

Bruising, swelling, and mild soreness can occur following liposuction. Your recovery instructions will include approved methods of controlling any post-procedure discomfort. A compression garment will help reduce swelling and provides comforting support after the procedure and will be recommended for at least 6-8 weeks after surgery. Gentle lymphatic massage does seem to help some patients. Taking short, frequent walks over the recovery period to promote healthy blood flow is encouraged.
Most patients are able to return to work and light activity within five to seven days of their procedure! Full exercise can be resumed within 4-6 weeks if healing goes as expected.
