At Lytle Plastic Surgery, we offer liposuction for men and women who are looking for a way to get rid of stubborn fat around their bodies and enhance the appearance of their figure. Dr. Lytle is a highly skilled plastic surgeon who can provide you with natural-looking results from your liposuction in Detroit.

What Is Liposuction?

Despite working out and watching what you eat, many men and women have areas of fat on their bodies that just won’t go away. Or you are trying to get back to your pre-pregnancy body. Liposuction will improve your body contour.

Liposuction is a very popular procedure and one of the most common procedures that we do for both men and women. It is an excellent way to improve body shape and definition by removing unwanted fat from stubborn areas. Liposuction can eliminate fat from the abdomen, back, thighs, hips, arms, and neck.


Patients who have body fat that just won’t go away, even with the strictest diet or the most rigorous exercise regimen, are ideal candidates for liposuction. Patients must have realistic expectations for their results.

Weight changes can negatively affect results. Because of this, if the patient is still in the process of shedding a significant amount of weight and is still far from their target weight, it’s best to postpone liposuction.

Patients must be in good health. Patients who are still recovering from recent accidents or surgeries are advised to wait until they are fully healed.


Patients who want to undergo a liposuction procedure must schedule a consultation first. This is necessary for patients to learn more about the procedure and the steps involved. A consultation will also allow patients to tell Dr. Lytle about their medical history, current health, and aesthetic goals.

While patients are answering questions, they can also ask questions of their own. Any concerns they may have regarding the procedure can be addressed during the consultation for the patient’s peace of mind.

Tumescent Liposuction

Dr. Lytle uses a technique known as tumescent liposuction. This involves injecting a solution of saline and local anesthetics into the area of fat before removing it. This technique results in much more efficient fat removal allowing Dr. Lytle to take more fat in a safe manner. It also provides for an easier, more comfortable recovery with less bruising.

Recovering from Liposuction

Liposuction is a procedure that is done in an outpatient setting. Most patients are functional within a few days to a week after the procedure. The incisions are barely visible. Patients are placed in a compression garment for several weeks to a few months to minimize swelling and improve overall contour. Dr. Ian Lytle will provide you with post-operative instructions to help make your recovery as easy as possible.

Patients are also advised to avoid any strenuous activity immediately following the procedure. During the recovery period, patients can do moderate exercises like walking.

The Cost of Liposuction

The cost of your liposuction will depend on several factors like the number of areas being treated and the amount of work required to provide you with your ideal results. During your consultation, our team will let you know what the expected cost of your liposuction will be and go over the payment options we offer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Areas Can Be Treated with Liposuction?

Liposuction can enhance body contours by removing excess fat from areas like the abdomen, hips, thighs, and arms. This technique is a body-sculpting service that is often included in a patient’s aesthetic body enhancement treatment plan.

What Are the Risks and Side Effects of Liposuction?

While liposuction is generally safe, it carries risks such as swelling, bruising, and changes in skin sensation. Advanced techniques ensure minimal discomfort and recovery time, with rare cases of fluid accumulation or contour changes being professionally addressable.

What is the Difference Between Liposuction and CoolSculpting?

Liposuction is a procedure that removes fat through suction, while CoolSculpting is a non-invasive technique that uses cooling technology to reduce fat deposits without surgery.

Can Liposuction Help with Weight Loss?

Liposuction is designed for body contouring, not significant weight loss. It is most effective for removing localized fat deposits and improving body shape, but it is not a substitute for weight loss methods like diet and exercise.

Is Liposuction Permanent?

Yes, liposuction removes fat cells permanently from the treated areas. However, patients should maintain a stable weight. Significant weight gain can lead to new fat deposits in other areas of the body, potentially altering the results.

What Should I Expect During a Liposuction Consultation?

During a consultation for liposuction in Detroit, your medical history will be reviewed, your aesthetic goals will be discussed, and you will be informed about the procedure options and potential outcomes.

I have nothing but absolutely positive things to say about Dr. Lytle. I interviewed several doctors before I met him, and I knew immediately he was the right surgeon for me. I had a mini tummy tuck along with liposuction and the outcome has been great! His personal care for his patients is unmatched, you won't find better. - RealSelf Reviewer
