Las Vegas, NV cosmetic surgeon Dr. Edward M. Zimmerman has performed thousands of liposuction procedures since the late 1990s. Abdomens, legs, upper arms, backs, male chests, and even breasts can be sculpted to remove excess, unwanted fat deposits. Manual tumescent, Power Assisted, Laser Assisted, and Hi-Def liposuction are our bread and butter. Dr. Z has trained with top leaders in the art and science of liposculpting in the United States, Europe, and South America to master these techniques and has trained dozens of other doctors in his innovative combination of these technologies. Even though you try to lose weight, you probably still have pockets of fat that are keeping you from being confident in yourself. This treatment at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas in Nevada can treat multiple areas at one time and can help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
"Best Doctor in Las Vegas Area!! - There are not enough words to express the level of excellence I experienced at this doctor's office. I had a great first consultation with Marilyn at this office and my appointments with Dr. Zimmerman have been better than I could have imagined. The front desk staff is so kind and helpful and I have never had to wait long in the waiting area. I am so glad to finally find a doctor's office that actually keeps track of their appointment times and stays on track! I find Dr. Zimmerman to be very patient, kind and honest. I have now had laser liposuction, botox and juvederm at his office and it has been the best I have experienced (I have been to a lot of different doctors prior!). I am now also getting laser hair removal from this office. Being a minority and having sensitive skin, I trust Dr. Zimmerman's judgement and suggestions on the best lasers to use for my skin to receive the best results for my skin type. (I have often been nervous and scared about scarring or getting discoloration but Dr. Zimmerman has been so patient and informative about my options!) I have been treated so wonderfully by Dr. Zimmerman and his entire staff and would not consider going anywhere but here! They are as good as it gets!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Aug 25, 2012
"Super Happy About My Surgery Results!! - I had liposuction in my lower back (aka love handles) and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. From my first consultation to my final check-up after surgery, I felt that the doctor and his staff treated me so kindly and professionally. I felt very comfortable and they took their time to answer all of my questions throughout the entire process. I had been to several doctors for consultations for liposuction and this was the only office that took their time during the consultation to explain everything thoroughly. My consultation with Marilyn took nearly an hour and I never felt rushed (other doctor's office rushed me in and out of consultations in 10 minutes and just handed me a quote as I walked out of the door!). My surgery went really well and I was surprised at how quickly I recovered. I noticed immediate results and it has only gotten better! I have gotten so many compliments since my procedure and I am so glad I went to Dr. Zimmerman. He is such a perfectionist and I could never go anywhere else for liposuction. Very thrilled with my results. I also love the front desk staff- Laura is my favorite. Great office location, great staff and great doctor makes this place the BEST there is!! Can't recommend highly enough. Two thumbs up. Five stars. First class all the way!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Jul 02, 2013
"Five Stars - Awesome doc and staff. Made me feel really comfortable. Discussed my issues with knowledge and fairness. Went over the variations of all the different ways to fix my problem whether he did them or not. Showed me his own before and after pictures and even introduced me to patients there who had done what I was consulting for (liposuction) already. He even referred me to several specialists for a procedure he doesn't do. It's rare to fine someone so honest and caring!! Way better than the other docs who rent their equipment and make you go to surgi-centers full of sick people for your elective surgery."- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 08, 2010

Ideal Candidates For Liposuction
Liposuction is a good treatment for those who are at an ideal weight but have pesky areas of fat that have been hard to lose with exercise and diet. Women and men contemplating liposuction should have skin that is taut because liposuction is not a treatment for loose or sagging skin. It's also important to realize that liposuction is not an answer to weight loss. Females undergoing liposuction should be past pregnancies as this may compromise the results. At the time of your consult for surgery, Dr. Z will set realistic expectations.
Liposuction Surgical Technique
Surgical liposuction is completed in an outpatient setting with the patient under general anesthesia. A punch-hole incision is placed through the skin so a cannula can be inserted. The cannula is a tube that makes it easier to work loose the fatty tissue that is being removed. After the chosen amounts of fat have been suctioned out, Dr. Z will seal the small incision. Based on the number of sections receiving treatment, your procedure may take several hours. In the separate area for recovery, your post-op team will assist you with managing any pain and look after your treated areas until you are discharged.
What to Expect In Liposuction
You may need to recover at home from lipo for several weeks based on the number of areas treated and the amount of fat removed. It's typical to have bruising and swelling for one or two weeks, and you should have stitches taken out 7 – 10 days after surgery. The most important thing to do following lipo surgery is to give your body time to recover and rest. When you are ready to go back to your job after your surgery, you need to remember to go slow. To increase your strength and stamina, try short walks and light workouts as advised by Dr. Z. Remember, you may notice some improvements soon after your surgery, but it will take around 6 – 10 months until your new body contour and shape is complete.
Liposuction Frequently Asked Questions
How much does liposuction cost?
The liposuction varies, depending on the technique selected and how many areas are being treated. In your consultation, Dr. Z will create your custom treatment plan to meet your needs and goals. He will also consider your budget. When your plan is ready, estimated costs will be discussed. To make your surgery easy to afford, Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas takes several payment methods and we will help you find low-interest financing.
What about nonsurgical liposuction?
There are several nonsurgical procedures to reduce body fat. A popular brand is SculpSure. Although this nonsurgical procedure can help reduce mild to moderate fat pockets, surgical liposuction is best for most people. Liposuction surgery produces more dramatic and consistent results. Ask Dr. Z about nonsurgical lipo in your consultation. He can explain the benefits of all your options and help you choose which is best for you.
What about cellulite and loose skin?
Liposuction surgery only corrects excess fat. For loose skin, Dr. Z may recommend combining liposuction with a cosmetic surgery. To correct cellulite, Dr. Z may suggest NuEra nonsurgical cellulite treatment. During your consultation, talk to Dr. Z about your concerns, like cellulite and loose skin, so your best treatment plan is created.
Will I have scars?
Since liposuction is an invasive surgery, incisions will be made and sutured. This will create scars; however, Dr. Z does his best to reduce their appearance. This starts with making small incisions in less visible areas or the natural folds of your body. After your surgery, Dr. Z or a member of his team will explain how to care for your incisions so they heal properly and fade.
Will my results last?
Before liposuction, it is important to be prepared to maintain your results. Although liposuction reduces the amount of fat cells in an area, you can still lose and gain weight. Dr. Z suggests that you be at or close to a healthy weight prior to liposuction. Afterward, it's best to remain within 5 – 10 pounds of your post-surgical weight. Getting pregnant after liposuction will also impact your results; however, another surgery, like a mommy makeover, may be done to refresh your body.
