Many patients struggle with stubborn pockets of fat in the midsection, upper thighs, and more, even with a healthy diet and exercise.
Dr. James E. Murphy can help you achieve a leaner, more attractive figure with liposuction.
Why is liposuction so popular among our patients in the greater Reno NV, area?
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
Dr. Murphy takes into consideration multiple factors when evaluating potential candidates at our Reno, NV, practice.
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.
Liposuction Is Not
for Weight Loss
Liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle and should not be considered a weight-loss procedure. The procedure is designed to tone and enhance regions of the body where you have failed to reach your goals through diet and exercise alone.

Liposuction can treat nearly any problem area on the body. It's often combined with fat transfer procedures, like Brazilian Butt Lift.
Liposuction & Safe Sculpt Results*
Commonly Combined Procedures At Our Reno, NV, Location
Different liposuction techniques can be combined with a traditional facelift and other facial lift surgeries. Facial liposuction can remove excess fat from under the chin and around the neck during your lift procedure, improving the overall definition of your jawline and face.
Our plastic surgeon can combine liposuction with a breast lift, giving you a bustline that is perkier as well as a slimmer upper torso. Liposuction targets the unwanted fat around the armpits (axillary rolls), which can enhance the overall shape, prominence, and appearance of the breasts.
Liposuction removes excess fat while a tummy tuck tightens sagging, stretched skin and repairs separated muscles in your abdomen for a slimmer body. Combining these two procedures provides a comprehensive transformation around the patient's midsection.

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.
Maintaining Your Liposuction Results
Staying physically active will help keep your figure trim and energized overall. Some cardio and strength training is enough to extend the results of liposuction, eliminating the need for strenuous exercise.
Drink More Water
Staying hydrated will help you manage hunger and maintain a healthy weight. Instead of drinking soda, juices, and sugary drinks, we recommend drinking water instead. Water has no calories, helps your body process waste, and performs other healthy functions for the body.
Eat Healthy Meals
Having a nutritious, balanced diet will help you keep your desired weight and body shape. We recommend eating more vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains. Do your best to avoid processed foods and sugary snacks.
Understanding the Potential Risks
Like any surgery, liposuction comes with some potential risks. Bleeding, infection, and scarring are possible but rare. Liposuction could also lead to abnormal contouring of the skin in a small percentage of cases.
Receiving treatment from a highly-trained professional like Dr. James E. Murphy reduces your risk of complications. For your added comfort, our plastic surgeon will use sedation or general anesthesia during surgery. Combined with local anesthesia to eliminate pain, we can help you reach a safe and deeply relaxed state.
Dr. Murphy uses minimally invasive techniques that leave little scarring. He greatly values the safety of his patients and will never perform or recommend a surgery that is too risky.
Not a Candidate for Lipo? Consider SculpSure
SculpSure™ is the world's first hands-free hyperthermic body contouring system, using pads that radiate heat to expel stubborn fat deposits. Your body naturally eliminates the fat cells over the course of 6-12 weeks after your treatment.
The SculpSure procedure also stimulates the production of collagen, rejuvenating skin in the treatment area. Our best results are two treatment sessions to the same area of the body spaced six weeks apart.
