Many patients struggle with stubborn pockets of fat in the midsection, upper thighs, and more, even with a healthy diet and exercise.
Dr. James Murphy can help you slim problem areas and achieve a leaner, more attractive figure with liposuction.
Why is liposuction so popular among our patients in the greater Reno and Lake Tahoe, NV, areas?
Minimally Invasive Options
In addition to traditional liposuction, our Reno practice offers Smartlipo® and SAFELipo® which use laser technology to break down and separate fat cells. These techniques are often more precise and result in less trauma to surrounding body tissues. Dr. Murphy will assess your needs and help you determine the best technique for optimal body contouring results.
Candidates for Liposuction
Like any type of plastic surgery, you may be at a higher risk for complications if you suffer from poor health or certain medical conditions. Individuals who smoke or have heart disease or circulatory problems are better suited for non-invasive body contouring treatments.
While your weight alone does not disqualify you from receiving treatment, patients with a healthy BMI tend to see the best results. We recommend candidates be at a stable weight and within 15-20% of their ultimate weight loss goal.
Good Skin Elasticity
Patients with poor elasticity run the risk of developing a wrinkled skin texture following the procedure. Since lipo targets just fat, not sagging skin, the best candidates have healthy skin elasticity and good underlying muscle tone. If excess skin is a problem, particularly around the midsection, a tummy tuck may be a better option to reach your goals.

Versatile, Customized Enhancements
Dr. Murphy approaches each patient on an individual basis and tailors your treatment plan according to your unique goals. In addition, we often address multiple areas at once or combine your liposuction with other cosmetic surgeries such as a tummy tuck or facelift. The procedure is also useful for additional enhancement involving fat transfers such as the Brazilian Butt Lift. During your consultation at our Reno practice, we will explain all your options and help you choose the best methods to achieve your cosmetic goals.

How Much Does Liposuction Cost?
The cost of liposuction treatment at our Reno practice usually starts at $5,700. The final cost depends on a number of factors, including the type of liposuction you choose and the size of the area you wish to treat. While the procedure is a significant investment, patients tend to be more satisfied with the dramatic effects of surgical treatment over cheaper, nonsurgical options. We also accept flexible financing through CareCredit® and ALPHAEON® to help reduce your initial out-of-pocket expenses.
