Liposuction, also referred to as liposculpture, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available. Many people struggle with areas of fat that don’t seem to budge, no matter how much they exercise or how they restrict their diets.
In these cases, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Mitchell Kaye may recommend liposuction.
Liposuction can help you enhance your body’s contours and smooth those difficult areas for an improved overall appearance and a boost in self-esteem. Liposuction can be a fast and effective way to achieve the look you desire.

Is liposuction right for me?
Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures we offer, and it is a favorite for both men and women. If you are considering liposuction, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you have stubborn areas of fat on your outer or inner thighs, abdomen, back, chest, or hips, that are unresponsive to strict diet and exercise regimens?
- Do you have one or two areas of your body that are out of proportion to the rest of your body?
- Would you like to enhance your body contours?
- Are you in good health?
- Can you define your desired result, or do you know what you want to look like after the procedure?
If you answered, “yes,” to one or more of these questions, liposuction may be a good option for you.
In some cases, liposuction may be performed as a part of another cosmetic procedure. Procedures like an arm lift or mommy makeover (Breast Augmentation or Lift and Tummy Tuck) often require the use of liposuction in order to attain the patient’s desired results.
We encourage you to contact us today to learn more and to set up your consultation at our office.
What will I learn during my consultation with Dr. Mitchell Kaye?
Our team at the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Kentucky focuses on personalized consultation. In most cases, we start the process with a virtual consult to define your goals, review photographs and, most importantly, to understand each other.
These meetings include a discussion of your goals, desires, concerns, and questions. We are here to help you understand the options we offer for helping you reach all of your goals for your appearance.
Dr. Mitchell Kaye and our team never rush their time with you, and we are always happy to answer your questions. You should expect your consultation to last about one hour. At the conclusion of your visit, our Patient Care Coordinator will be able to assist you with scheduling and any other needs. At this point, we usually make plans to see our patients in the office for a physical exam and to discuss the procedures in more detail. We invite you to contact us today to schedule your individual consultation.
How is liposuction done?
Liposuction is typically completed under total intravenous anesthesia with tumescent infiltration to ensure your safety and comfort. During the procedure, our experienced plastic surgeon uses a tube called a cannula that is attached to a suction system to remove fat from the body. Compared to other less proven methods of fat removal, such as water assisted liposuction, cool assisted fat dissolving techniques and injections to remove fat, our technique offers effective and predictable results. These are typically achieved in only one session, unlike many other techniques. This saves both time and cost to the patient.
Depending on your procedure, liposuction may take 1-3hours. You will be discharged home following the procedure, and Dr. Kaye will call you that evening to check on you. You will also visit with Dr. Mitchell Kaye on the day following the procedure.
If you are one of our patients who travel a long distance to have your procedure with us, we recommend staying overnight in a local hotel. This avoids long car rides following the surgery. We have arranged special discounted rates with local hotels; please feel free to contact our Patient Care Coordinator for more information.

How much does liposuction cost?
The cost of liposuction depends on a number of factors that are individual to you, including your desires, your body, and your procedure. Our prices are inclusive, covering the consultation, surgery, anesthesia, and postoperative visits.
As part of your consultation at our office, our team will review the involved costs with you and discuss options for financing. We are pleased to offer financing through CareCredit or United Medical Credit, and we also offer a cash discount. Insurance does not cover cosmetic procedures.
For more information about our financing options, we invite you to contact our Patient Care Coordinator at the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Kentucky.
