"Dr. Barker and his team are AMAZING!!! From day 1 of my consultation into week 4 after my breast augmentation surgery, everybody in his office are so accommodating and professional. I am soooo happy with my results!!! I showed him several pics of my “goal” breasts before surgery and he 💯 nailed it. They are exactly what I hoped for and look very natural with the gummy bear implants that were used. I was prepared for a lot of pain after surgery, and opted for a pain blocker shot...well...that shot was a game changer. i didn’t feel much pain at all for 72 hours after the surgery. The whole experience was a lot easier than i ever imagined. Go see Dr. Barker....you won’t regret it!!!"- L.L / Office Visit / Jan 26, 2021

What To Expect From Liposuction
Liposuction is an excellent procedure option for patients who maintain a healthy weight but have stubborn areas of fat that are difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise. Patients interested in liposuction should also have good skin laxity because liposuction does not address loose or sagging skin. Dr. Barker will help determine if this procedure is right for you and set realistic expectations during your consultation. Once you have a tailored treatment plan, we will schedule your surgery.
Dr. Barker will begin your procedure by administering general anesthesia. Next, he makes a punch-hole incision into the skin to insert the cannula. The cannula is a specialized device that loosens and suctions the fat. After removing the fat, Dr. Barker closes your incision, and we take you back to the recovery room for careful monitoring. Once discharged, you will need several weeks of recovery, but this depends on how many areas we treated and the amount of fat removed. We will provide detailed aftercare instructions and schedule any necessary follow-up appointments before you leave. You may notice some changes after six weeks, but it takes about 6 – 10 months before your new body shape and contour is complete.
How much does liposuction cost?
The price of liposuction will vary based on the technique being used and how many areas are being addressed. In your consultation, Dr. Barker will develop your personal liposuction plan to meet your needs and goals. He will also consider your budget. When your plan is developed, estimated costs can be discussed. To make your surgery easy to afford, Peak Plastic Surgery accepts several payment options, and we can help you find low-interest financing.
Does liposuction improve cellulite and loose skin?
Liposuction surgery only addresses excess fat in the body. If you have loose skin, Dr. Barker may recommend combining liposuction with a lift surgery. Lipo is often performed with skin tightening surgery, such as a tummy tuck, arm lift, or thighplasty, to give you your best results. To correct cellulite, there are many nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatment options, including VelaShape, Cellulaze, Venus Freeze, and VASER Shape. In your consultation, talk to Dr. Barker about all your concerns, like loose skin and cellulite, so your ideal treatment plan is created.
Will I have scarring after liposuction?
Since liposuction is a surgical procedure, incisions will be made and sutured. This will cause scars, but Dr. Barker does his best to minimize their appearance. This starts with making thin incisions in the natural folds of your body or in less visible areas. After your surgery, Dr. Barker or a member of his team will explain how to care for your stitches so they heal properly and fade.
Will my results from liposuction last?
Before liposuction, it's important to be prepared to maintain your results. Although liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in your body, you can still gain and lose weight. Dr. Barker recommends that you be at or close to your ideal weight before having liposuction surgery. Afterward, it's best to remain within 5 – 10 pounds of your post-surgical weight. Pregnancy after liposuction will also alter your results; however, a second surgery, like a mommy makeover, may be done to refresh your appearance.
