What is lipo?

Lipo, also called liposuction or liposculpting, is a cosmetic procedure that removes unwanted fat from various areas of your body to improve your shape. 

When it comes to giving you the body you want, Dr. Miller-Thrasher has a unique skill set. She is a fellowship-trained cosmetic surgeon with over 25 years of surgical experience.

She has performed more than 1,000 cosmetic surgical procedures, including liposuction, liposculpting, lipocontouring, and laser liposuction. She performs liposuction on many areas of the body, including:

  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Breast
  • Bra line
  • Underarm
  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Calves
  • Male chest to treat “man boobs”

Dr. Miller-Thrasher takes great pride in her skills and even performs thigh liposuction posteriorly to give you the coveted “inner thigh gap.” 

How is lipo performed?

Innovative Surgical Arts uses many innovative lipo techniques to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. 

Tumescent liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is the most common type of liposuction. During the procedure, Dr. Miller-Thrasher injects large amounts of a medicated solution into the treatment area and then suctions the solution and unwanted fat from your body.

She may perform your tumescent liposuction using local anesthesia, called “awake lipo.” You also have the option of sedation during your tumescent liposuction, which is performed by a licensed and certified professional. 

VASER liposculpture

VASER hi-def liposculpture is an advanced lipo tool that uses ultrasonic soundwaves to liquify your unwanted pockets of fat. With VASER liposculpture, Dr. Miller-Thrasher precisely targets your trouble spots for better aesthetic outcomes, such as the treatment of gynecomastia, also called “man boobs.”

Hi-def lipo

Hi-def lipo usually includes VASER liposculpture and allows Dr. Miller-Thrasher to suction fat from very specific, superficial areas of the body to create that sculpted look. 

What are types of lipo procedures?

With her skillset and specialized lipo tools, Dr. Miller-Thrasher performs her signature lipo procedures, including the Innovative SnapBack and Booty Pop procedures. 

These liposuction procedures are popular because they give you a beautiful and more naturally contoured definition that leaves those around you wondering what’s your secret weapon. 

Am I a good candidate for lipo?

Dr. Miller-Thrasher determines if you’re a good candidate for lipo when you come to Innovative Women's HealthCare Solutions for a cosmetic consultation. 

Ideally, you should be in good overall health and maintain an active lifestyle. She especially enjoys performing lipo on patients who’ve had weight-loss surgery.
