Chicago liposuction plastic surgeon, Dr. Jay Pensler MD specializes in all forms of contemporary liposuction plastic surgery. The best in class plastic surgeon is able to perform liposuction under local anesthesia or general anesthesia – this will be dependent on your particular case and you can discuss your options with the plastic surgeon during your consultation.  Liposuction is an outpatient plastic surgery procedure and is performed in the plastic surgeon’s fully accredited surgical facility in Chicago’s Gold Coast district.

Recovery from liposuction is very fast and most of the plastic surgeon’s patients return to their daily routine within 24-48 hours and return to light exercise in approximately one week.  Please note that returning to your daily routine does not include strenuous physical activity and that a liposuction compression garment may be required to be worn for the first few weeks to obtain the best possible result (this will vary from case to case and be discussed before your procedure).

Dr. Pensler and I both decided that I was candidate for liposuction because exercise and diet wasn’t getting rid of the excess bulge. It’s been a week since my liposuction plastic surgery and I AM MORE THAN SATISFIED WITH MY RESULTS. Dr. Pensler and his staff were beyond patient, honest, personable, professional, and kind. There was minimal pain involved with the surgery; I took way too much time off work to heal. The surgery was on a Thursday; by Saturday I forgot I even had liposuction. Those people who wrote those negative reviews about this doctor are liars. I completely trust him and so should you! He’s the BEST before and after TX! ~ YELP

Liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to remove pockets of excess fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. If you are bothered by excess fat deposits, located anywhere on your body, that do not respond to diet or exercise, liposuction plastic surgery may be right for you.

What areas can be treated with liposuction?

  • Lateral thighs (saddlebags)
  • Buttocks (liposuction can be used for buttock reshaping)
  • Medial thighs (friction sites)
  • Knees
  • Upper and lower abdomen (tummy)
  • Thickened calves
  • Ankles
  • Flanks
  • Waist (love handles)
  • Back and upper back
  • Enlarged male breasts (gynecomastia)
  • Female hips and waist
  • Upper arms
  • Chin
  • Cheeks
  • Neck (double chin) – liposuction is often used during the neck lift procedure

In general, liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing localized or regional fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion, and ultimately, enhancing your self-image. Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction employs the use of high-frequency sound waves to liquefy fat cells prior to their removal. With ultrasonic removal, the Chicago liposuction specialist has the ability to achieve smoother results, particularly in fibrous areas.
