Liposuction can remove fat from targeted areas of the body, creating a slimmer and more aesthetically appealing contour. Appleton and Green Bay patients frequently choose the procedure to eliminate fat around their belly, thighs, and back. A single procedure can provide the reduction patients may be unable to achieve through diet and exercise alone.

Dr. Sauerhammer can also reuse the fat that liposuction removes to emphasize specific features. With fat transfer, she can help you lose fat where you don’t want it and gain fullness where you wish you had it. Learn more below about your options and treatment at Wisconsin Institute of Plastic Surgery.

Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that offers Appleton and Green Bay patients several advantages:

Breast Augmentation Slim Down Features Icon

Slim down features that aren’t responding to diet and exercise.

Breast Augmentation Remove Fat Icon

Remove fat from a variety of areas, including the abdomen, thighs, back, arms, knees, and neck.

Breast Augmentation Offers Immediate Results Icon

See an immediate difference in the treated sites.

Breast Augmentation Add Volume Icon

Add volume to where you want it through the use of fat transfer.

The effects of liposuction are subtle but significant, providing natural-looking aesthetic improvement. The procedure takes place through a very small incision, which means that signs of surgery are minimal.

Meet the Doctor

Dr. Sauerhammer offers patients nearly a decade of experience and specialization in rejuvenating procedures for the body, breasts, and face. Her practice also includes pediatric plastic surgery, transgender confirmation, reconstructive procedures, and noninvasive cosmetic treatment. She is double-board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery.

Is Liposuction Right for You?

If you have relatively taut skin and want to get rid of fat from a specific area of your body, you are likely a good candidate for liposuction. If sagging skin is causing the aesthetic issue — and not unwanted pockets of fat — you may be more suited to a tummy tuck procedure. Removing fat from an area with lax skin can make the problem more noticeable. With a tummy tuck, Dr. Sauerhammer will remove excess skin and may also tighten the underlying muscles.

Many Appleton and Green Bay patients see our practice for an initial consultation because they know what they want to achieve but aren’t sure which procedure is best for accomplishing it. Discussions with Dr. Sauerhammer and our staff help guide these decisions and ensure that patients choose their care with confidence.

What Is the Recovery from Liposuction Like?

Most liposuction procedures will take place under general anesthesia. Patients will receive a local anesthetic to keep them comfortable during and after the surgery. Scarring will be limited because Dr. Sauerhammer will remove the fat through a tiny incision. After your procedure, you will wear a compression garment for about one month. This will help reduce swelling and reshape the area where Dr. Sauerhammer has operated.

You can expect to return to our practice at one week, two weeks, and four weeks. Then, we will see you back at our office monthly for three months and afterward, as needed. Many of our patients are back at work quickly, though most feel sore for about one week. Swelling generally takes six months to subside.

Pricing for Liposuction in Appleton and Green Bay

The price of your liposuction will depend on several factors. These include:

  • The number of sites that you choose to have treated.
  • The extent of fat removal in these sites.
  • Whether fat transfer is part of your procedure.

A surgery that combines multiple adjacent sites can decrease the overall cost of your treatment. Wisconsin Institute of Plastic Surgery will offer transparent pricing for your procedure as well as answers to any other questions you have about treatment. We welcome the opportunity to provide you with exceptional care.
