Orlando Liposuction

As a renowned Orlando cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Baker is exceptionally experienced at performing liposuction procedures for both men and women. By using new and improved liposuction techniques, our surgical team can remove larger amounts of fat than ever before. Ultrasonic energy use, in particular, is utilized by Dr. Baker to perform superior liposuction procedures.


Considered to be an expert with ultrasonic liposuction, he was one of the first twelve surgeons in the country who traveled to France in order to learn ultrasonic liposuction under the guidance of its inventor. Ultrasonic liposuction involved the use of very high-pitched sound waves that can essentially melt fat before it is to be removed. It is particularly effective for fat removal in areas that tend to be considered hard to treat, such as the chin, neck, and ankles. It can offer very precise body contouring in conjunction with tumescent liposuction. For the procedure, a tumescent fluid (an anesthetic combined with saline and epinephrine) is injected into the area, which helps reduce fluid loss that can occur during the procedure. After, the sound waves are transmitted to a tube, which liquefies any fat that it touches. The fat is then vacuumed out.


Although liposuction procedures are safe and effective, ultrasonic liposuction in particular has benefits that exceed all other options. The procedure is effective against the densest fat deposits, and allows the surgeon to remove larger amounts of fat in one session. Although it is usually performed in conjunction with a tummy tuck, Dr. Baker prides himself on not pressuring patients to undergo multiple procedures that they do not want. Safety and health for his patients is his utmost goal, as well as providing them with the results they desire. Undergoing liposuction can greatly increase self-esteem and confidence, leading to greater happiness and satisfaction for any man or woman. The recovery period can be a few days or a few weeks, and will depend on individual circumstances. Dr. Baker is happy to answer any questions that are directed towards him, and will make sure patients are fully informed on all risks and complications that may be associated with the procedure, no matter how minimal. Liposuction’s results tend to be permanent, when combined with healthy eating and exercise plans.


The procedure improves contour and proportion of the body, and creates a more flattering physique. Patients will be put under general anesthesia, and although many liposuction procedures do not require overnight stays, those involving large fat volumes may. Compression garments may be used after the procedure, for the first week, in order to reduce swelling and maintain shape.
