Dr. Martin Jugenburg and the professional cosmetic surgery team of Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Institute offer patients the safest, most advanced liposuction techniques to minimize risk, ensure quick recovery and create a beautiful new you. For patients who follow the postoperative instructions of Dr. Jugenburg, liposuction is a highly successful procedure with minimal complications. We are confident that you will be delighted by the beautifully reshaped contours of your new body.
Both men and women with various body types and sizes can benefit from liposuction. Many people have been unsuccessful in trying to control their weight or eliminate fat in a specific area of their body, even after following an exercise regimen and healthy diet. Others may have a thin body but have a localized area of stubborn fat. Some women experience difficulty reversing the effects of childbearing or breastfeeding (see Mommy Makeover group of surgical procedures). Liposuction can provide a fast and safe cosmetic improvement for all of these people.
If your skin lacks the elasticity to properly sculpt a small body area, Dr. Jugenburg will inform you that liposuction alone may not resolve the issue. In such cases, Dr. Jugenburg may recommend an additional procedure such as skin excision to deliver the most desirable aesthetic results.
Liposuction is not a surgical procedure that is limited to large parts of your body; it can also be very successful when performed with precision on smaller part of the body. The surgery can remove fat from various areas including:
There are several different types of liposuction surgery available for patients. Since patient health and safety are of paramount concern to Dr. Jugenburg, he performs both Tumescent and Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) procedures. Both of these procedures enable Dr. Jugenburg to operate with greater precision and reduced risk to the patient. Tumescent and Power-Assisted Liposuction procedures also have shorter recovery times and superior aesthetic results.
During tumescent liposuction, Dr. Jugenburg injects a fluid into the area being targeted for the removal of fat cells. The fluid is a mixture of salt water, lidocaine (an anaesthetic) and epinephrine, and facilitates effective and safe removal of the fat and minimizes blood loss during the procedure. A slender tube called a cannula is then inserted into small incisions in the patient’s skin and attached to a vacuum, which gently removes the fat and fluids from your body. Because you’re losing fat and fluids from the suction, the doctor may replenish your body fluid through an intravenous line, also called an IV.
Powered liposuction uses a cannula that moves in a rapid back-and-forth motion. This vibration enables easier removal of tough fat. Powered liposuction causes less pain and swelling and allows removal of fat with greater precision, especially on smaller areas, such as the arm, knee or ankle.
Power-assisted liposuction is one of the latest technologies developed to maximize liposuction results, minimize recovery time, and do it all in the safest way possible. Unlike Laser-Assisted Liposuction, Power-Assisted Liposuction has a far lower rate of complications.
Both tumescent and power-assisted liposuction procedures can produce stunning results when performed by a certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Jugenburg.

All cosmetic surgery procedures have a recovery period. The recovery period for liposuction will vary based on the extent of your surgery, the area of your body affected, your anatomy and the amount of fat cells being removed. There may be some swelling, bruising and discomfort. These may last only a few days, or it could take a few weeks, again based on the extent of your surgery. During your initial consultation, Dr. Jugenburg will clearly outline all of the necessary precautions you need to take, as well as any postoperative limitations you should follow. Most patients who receive liposuction surgery at Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Institute are very pleased with the exceptional results and love their beautiful new appearance.
The results of a liposuction procedure can be truly amazing. Since the procedure typically involves only minor incisions, there is only minimal scarring. In fact, once you have fully recovered, any scars will be barely noticeable and will fade in time. But you will have smoother contours, a more appealing shape to your body and a huge boost to your self-confidence!
As with any cosmetic surgery, liposuction does have risks. Complications will vary depending on the specific procedure you’re having. If you’re having work done on larger surfaces of your body or having more than one procedure during the same operation, the risk of complication is greater. During your initial consultation, Dr. Jugenburg will identify any and all risks associated with this surgery. Postoperative complications are not common with liposuction surgeries performed at Toronto Cosmetic Surgery Institute. Dr. Jugenburg and his medical staff consistently take every necessary precaution to minimize any risk, diligently protecting patient health and safety. However, should there be unfavourable results, our professional cosmetic surgery team have the medical expertise, knowledge, and technology to correct it.
