We offer liposuction to accommodate a range of needs and goals.

The Evolution of Liposuction

Since the introduction of liposuction in 1974, procedures and methods have evolved significantly from the use of cannulas to break down and remove fat deposits in the 1980s and ultrasound technology in the 1990s to more recent innovations with laser technology. Advancements in the use of anesthetics have also contributed by reducing pain associated with procedures and shortening recovery periods. 

You can incorporate liposuction into a variety of other procedures to further enhance cosmetic results.

What We Offer

Dr. Yee offers a variety of liposuction treatments that she can customize to meet your individual needs, based on the areas you wish to target and other factors. Regardless of which option you choose, you can feel confident that Dr. Yee will prioritize your comfort and satisfaction.

Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is beneficial in procedures such as breast reductions to minimize bleeding and swelling. With an injection of anesthetic, the fat deposits in the treatment area hardens, resulting in less bleeding and a shortened recovery time.


SmartlipoTM is the first liposuction technique to utilize laser technology. Before performing the liposuction, the laser is placed against the skin in the target area to liquefy fat while the laser heat simultaneously tightens skin and counteracts the loose, sagging effect often associated with traditional liposuction. As with tumescent liposuction, SmartlipoTM minimizes bleeding and swelling for a faster recovery. 


VASER Hi Def® is designed to eliminate deposits of fat that surround various muscle groups, enhancing muscle definition for a more toned and athletic appearance. Dr. Yee is one of just 12 surgeons in the country trained in this advanced technology.

Fat Transfer

Dr. Yee can also perform fat transfers through liposuction, improving facial and body contours by moving unwanted fat from one area of the body, such as the abdomen, to restore volume to cheeks or lips or reduce wrinkles. This technique can also be used to increase the volume and shape of your buttocks during a customized Brazilian butt lift.

Incorporating Liposuction into Other Cosmetic Procedures

Since you can incorporate liposuction into a variety of other procedures for even better cosmetic results, Dr. Yee commonly performs liposuction in conjunction with: 

If you are considering another cosmetic procedure, Dr. Yee can explain all your options and help you decide on an appropriate, tailored treatment plan.
