Woman's abdomen


Do you have stubborn, unwanted fat that will not go away in spite of regular exercise and a healthy diet?

In many cases, you can achieve the lean contours you dream about with the help of liposuction surgery.

Learn how Carmel Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons serving Indianapolis and Carmel, IN, can help...

Improve Definition and Boost Your Confidence

Reveal Your Figure

If you have unresponsive fat deposits, you are not alone. Even women and men with vigorous exercise regimens and strict diets can carry unwanted weight. Liposuction can help you fully enjoy major milestones such as helping to contour your body after significant weight loss and regaining your figure after childbirth.

Nearly Immediate Gratification

As with any type of body contouring surgery, liposuction will require downtime so that you can fully recover. However, you should notice an immediate refinement to your figure following the surgical procedure. 

Experience a Healthier Self-Image

Stubborn fat that will not go away despite considerable physical effort and a restrictive diet can leave you feeling defeated and self-conscious. Liposuction can provide relief by shaving off excess fat, boosting your self-esteem and confidence.

Liposuction Ranks #4 In Plastic Surgery Procedures


Liposuction is the fourth most common plastic surgery procedure in the United States, according to a 2020 report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Requirements for Liposuction Patients

It is important to keep in mind that liposuction is not a weight-loss treatment. It is intended to eliminate small amounts of excess fat that do not respond to diet or exercise.

You may be a candidate for this type of plastic surgery at our Carmel, Indiana, plastic surgery office, serving the greater Indianapolis area, if you have fat deposits in your:

  • Face
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Breast/Chest
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Hips/Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Calves

I just want to Thank Dr. Bergman and her staff. From the second I called for my consult I felt heard. When I walked into her office it was very welcoming and meeting her made my fears melt away. I knew the second I met her she was the one for this. I had went to a few consults already and they just didn’t fit for me. I walked out happy as a kid in a candy store that day. I am 4 days post op and feeling great. She has truly changed my life. I would recommend her a million times over. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Dr. Bergman! No pictures yet but I had a tummy tuck, with a little lipo, and a small reduction and breast lift.

My breast reduction surgery was the best thing I have ever done for myself and well being. Started with a consultation with Dr. Liz Grasee, who by the way has an excellent rating “5”. Dr. Grasee took the time to explain the procedure and everything to expect before, during and postop care. She allowed enough time to cover all areas of the surgery and I felt at ease preceding with the surgery. Procedure was performed at the outpatient facility and all the staff were very informative and attentive. Afterwards I had mininual pain!! I can now wear an undergarment which fits so comfortable and flattering. No more back pain and love my results. She is truly the best surgeon for breast reduction and liposuction. I highly recommend Dr. Grasee!

Special Considerations following Bariatric Surgery

Successfully losing a considerable amount of weight can cause the skin to lose elasticity and hang off your frame, obscuring the results you worked so hard for. Regardless of whether you underwent bariatric surgery or achieved dramatic results with lifestyle changes, massive weight loss can leave you with sagging skin and pockets of fat in various areas such as the arms, thighs, and abdomen.

Liposuction at our Carmel, Indiana, office, serving the greater Indianapolis area, can be useful for fat removal, but it cannot address sagging skin. Generally, liposuction is only recommended after significant weight loss in combination with other body contouring procedures. Surgical options to address sagging skin include abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), arm lifts, breast lifts, and thigh lifts

For certain cases, our doctors can utilize liposuction as part of a fat transfer to adjust the proportions of your figure after major weight loss.

How Does Liposuction Work?

Patients who choose our Indianapolis area practice in Carmel, Indiana, will have their procedure performed in an accredited outpatient surgery center or hospital with anesthesia to ensure maximum safety and comfort during the procedure. Local anesthesia may be used for small liposuction cases, however, when liposuction involves a larger area, general anesthesia is usually required. Detailed steps of the procedure include:

Day of Procedure


General or local anesthesia will be administered so you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. Dr. Grasee or Dr. Bergman will begin by making several small incisions in the treatment area. This allows the doctor to precisely access the excess tissue.

Liposuction Procedure

A long, thin, wand-like suction device called a cannula is inserted through the strategically placed incisions. The cannula is gently moved back and forth to loosen fat cells which are then suctioned out. 


Once the procedure is finished, the cannula is removed. In some cases, sutures are used to close the incisions. Our surgeons will provide complete instructions on recovery and wearing compression garments. Compression garments can make a dramatic difference in results by helping your body to adapt to your new streamlined shape.

Our Advanced Surgical Techniques

Our plastic surgeons perform both tumescent liposuction and ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL). 

Tumescent Liposuction

The surgical process for tumescent lipo involves injecting a saline solution mixed with a diluted local anesthetic (lidocaine) and vasoconstrictor drug (epinephrine) into subcutaneous fat. This mixture eliminates the need for general anesthesia in many cases and provides localized vasoconstriction, virtually eliminating bleeding during the procedure. The tumescent liposuction technique also dramatically reduces bruising following surgery.

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction

The UAL technique uses a special cannula that vibrates at a high rate of speed and gives off ultrasound energy. As the UAL cannula passes through fat cells, the ultrasonic waves emulsify or liquefy the fat before it is suctioned out. Benefits of ultrasound-assisted liposuction compared to traditional liposuction include less trauma to surrounding tissue and smoother skin.

Liposuction and Fat Transfer A Match Made in Heaven

Are you one of the many people who have stood in front of the mirror mentally visualizing how much better their body would look “if only” they could shift unwanted fat from their hips or thighs to their bust? Or somewhere else?

A two-step procedure combining liposuction with a fat transfer could turn your dreams into reality.

By extracting unwanted fat from one location, it can be purified and put to better use elsewhere, including for breast augmentation, in butt lifts, and in your face, where it can ease crow’s lines around your eyes or restore youthful volume to your profile. Because the fat is taken directly from your own body, there is no risk of rejection.
