lipoimageIf diet and exercise have failed to reduce areas of unwanted fat, then liposuction or body contouring may provide the results you are looking for. Liposuction is the surgical removal of excess fatty tissue. When performing tumescent or traditional liposuction, Dr. Marshall Yellen – a board-certified plastic surgeon, brings his years of experience and skill in reshaping your body contours.

Both men and women consult with Dr. Marshall Yellen at Plastic Surgery Clinic of Jackson for many reasons. Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce fat deposits in many body areas, including:

  • Cheeks, chin and neck
  • Upper arms
  • Breast or chest
  • Back
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Hips or buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Inner knees

The consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marshall Yellen is designed to fully educate you on liposuction, as well as discuss your goals and options in achieving the new you. One misconception stressed is that liposuction is not a substitute for dieting and exercise; nor is it a substitute for weight loss. It is also not an effective treatment for cellulite, the dimpling skin that can appear on thighs, hips and buttocks. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Yellen will work with you to achieve the goal and outcome you desire.
