Many men and women have stubborn areas of fat that simply will not go away, even with proper diet and exercise. As a result, they have unsightly fat bulges in otherwise trim, attractive bodies.

Double board-certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Steven J. Rottman uses advanced liposuction techniques to help men and women have trimmer, slimmer, more attractive bodies and arguably the best results in liposuction Maryland has to offer.

Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or suction lipectomy, reshapes and streamlines areas of the body by removing unwanted fat from targeted zones such as the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, calves, ankles, upper arms, chin, cheeks, and neck.

Our Baltimore liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise, however, it can reduce stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to traditional weight loss methods. Refinements to the procedure during the past decade have helped provide more precise results and shorter recovery times.

Liposuction may be the appropriate procedure to resolve fatty deposits on various body areas, including:

  • Back
  • Hips
  • Flanks
  • Bra line
  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Double chin

Unfortunately, liposuction does not resolve issues such as cellulite or sagging skin; therefore, liposuction is often combined with other cosmetic procedures to lift and tighten tissues or remove excess skin. A combination of liposuction with a facelift, neck lift, breast reduction or tummy tuck may be necessary to produce a trim, sculpted look.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States, due to its ability to improve one’s self-image and confidence by contouring the body and creating a slimmer, shapelier figure.

Liposuction techniques have improved over the years, and Dr. Rottman offers his patients the highest quality treatments with minimal tissue trauma and a shorter recovery. The results are consistent and beautiful!


Liposculpture refers to a technique in which Dr. Rottman removes and sculpts fat in targeted areas of the body to produce a more defined, attractive contour. This procedure is particularly popular with men who want to make their muscle structure look sleeker, firmer, more athletic, and defined.

Liposculpture produces a defined body contour that is often a sought-after look for men of all ages. After liposculpture, the muscles (such as the abdominal muscles, obliques, and pectorals) appear larger, and better defined.

How Is Liposuction Performed?

During our Maryland liposuction procedure, a narrow tube or cannula is inserted through tiny incisions to break apart and suction the fat layer that lies beneath the skin.

Preparing for Liposuction

Liposuction can be performed as a single procedure, or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a tummy tuck or breast augmentation. Depending on the extent of the surgery, it may be performed under general or local anesthesia. To determine whether you are a safe candidate for our liposuction in Baltimore, we may order blood work and obtain a health history from your primary care physician.

Liposuction—Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Have to Be at a Certain Weight Before Undergoing Liposuction?

When considering liposuction, it is more important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise than to be at a specific weight. Liposuction is best performed when you are at a stable weight.

Do the Results Last?

As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, liposuction results can be long-lasting. If you gain weight, it can negatively affect the areas that have been treated.

Will I Have Any Scars?

A small incision will need to be made in order to remove the fat cells. The incisions can be made in very discreet areas to minimize visibility.

Will I Have Excess Skin After Liposuction?

Liposuction will remove excess fat in quantity and can sometimes leave patients with loose or sagging skin. In most instances, unless there is significant skin laxity, the skin will adjust to the new contours of your body.

Recovery from Liposuction

Following your procedure it is normal to have mild swelling and fluid retention. A compression garment will need to be worn to reduce the post-operative swelling. You will be able to see a noticeable difference in the shape of your body soon after your surgery and will be able to fully enjoy your new, sleeker contours after about three months of your body contouring procedure.

The scars from liposuction are small and strategically placed so they are hidden from view. Liposuction can reduce the quantity of fatty tissue for the long term. To help maintain your trimmer, sleeker body shape, it is important that you are committed to a healthy lifestyle consisting of a healthy diet and regular exercise.

How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

Liposuction is an effective treatment for many areas of the body. The cost will vary, according to the body zones to be treated, the extent of fat removal, and any other plastic surgery procedure performed at the same time.

We work with CareCredit® and AlphaeonCredit® to offer our patients convenient monthly payments for their liposuction and other plastic surgery procedures. To learn more, please visit our financing page.
