New Image Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center offers liposuction to patients in Orlando and nearby locations.
Liposuction, or lipo, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Florida. Thousands of men and women take control of their shape each year with this safe and effective surgery. If diet and exercise have failed to reduce areas of unwanted fat on your body, then liposuction at New Image Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center in Orlando may provide the help you want.
Liposuction is designed to improve body shape and remove stubborn fat from areas such as the face and neck, upper arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, knees, calves, ankles and male breasts. Dr. Jan V. Karlin offers this procedure to help individuals throughout Central Florida attain a sleeker silhouette. Our lipo patients include residents of Orlando, Altamonte Springs, Kissimmee, Apopka, Sanford, Winter Park and beyond.
Is Liposuction Right for Me?
Liposuction is not a substitute for dieting and exercising properly, and it is not a weight-loss procedure. However, it is extremely effective in removing fat in areas that just do not respond to traditional weight-reduction methods. At our facility in Orlando, lipo candidates typically meet the following criteria:
- Have tried diet and exercise
- Have excess fat in specific areas
- Are within normal weight for their height
- Are in generally good health
- Have reasonably good elasticity in their skin

How is Liposuction Performed?
Liposuction — also known as liposculpture, lipoplasty and suction lipectomy — is the removal of unwanted fat from specific areas of the body. When you undergo our lipo in Orlando, Dr. Karlin will use a straw-like tube called a cannula to gently suck out the fat. Since the body does not create new fat cells, this area is forever free of those specific fat cells. Incisions are strategically placed to be as inconspicuous as possible.
Various types of anesthesia can be used for liposuction procedures. Together, you and Dr. Karlin will select the kind of anesthesia that provides the most safe and effective level of comfort for your surgery. If only a small amount of fat and a limited number of body sites are involved, then liposuction can be performed under local anesthesia, which numbs only the affected areas. Most patients prefer general anesthesia, particularly if a large volume of fat is being removed.
Liposuction can help change what heredity may have given you in regard to your body’s proportion. Several variations of the process exist, and by assessing your health, features and the desired result, Dr. Karlin will decide which technique is best for you.
What is the Recovery Process for Liposuction?
After your lipo procedure in Orlando, a compression garment should be worn for four to six weeks to minimize swelling and to help your skin tighten around your new, slimmer figure. Healing is gradual, but you will begin to see a noticeable difference in your body shortly after surgery. How quickly you are able to resume normal activities will depend on the amount of liposuction that is performed and your individual body type.
Liposuction is not a weight loss solution, so patients must be committed to a healthy diet and lifestyle to maintain long-term results.
What are Orlando Liposuction Costs?
Orlando liposuction prices vary depending on the extent of the procedure. Typically, the larger the body area, the higher the cost. Because each individual case is different, it is best to talk with Dr. Karlin about Orlando liposuction costs and whether lipoplasty can work for you.
