Small Scale Liposuction in Atlanta a Top Choice for Summer 'Touch-Ups'

Share Article

Targeted Atlanta liposuction treatments are gaining in popularity as a quick way to contour areas of the body. Plastic Surgery Center of the South's board-certified plastic surgeons share more on why these treatments are so appealing during the summer months in particular.

Many women and men have recently put the finishing touches on their summer look through small-scale liposuction and other less-invasive cosmetic surgeries. The three board-certified plastic surgeons from the Plastic Surgery Center of the South ( say that targeted liposuction in Atlanta is chosen by many people this time of year to create an enhanced look without weeks of downtime.

"People who work out and eat right still may have small 'trouble spots' that make them feel self-conscious, and that's where a minimally-invasive body contouring approach can really help," says Dr. Anthony Musarra. "Women and men want to look good in bathing suits and shorts for the remaining time left this summer, and liposuction provides an opportunity for them to enhance their appearance."

Liposuction procedures are popular in part because patients are able to recover fairly quickly and very small incisions can be made to minimize scarring. Dr. Musarra and his colleagues Dr. James Leake and Dr. Michael Petrosky - all board-certified plastic surgeons - have developed techniques to provide a minimal approach to liposuction procedures.

"In comparison to some of the larger scale procedures such as tummy tucks, targeted liposuction can achieve remarkable results without as much downtime and really make the difference for many patients," notes Dr. Petrosky.

Targeted liposuction can be used to treat small sections of fat in the chin, neck, arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks, and ankles. Experienced Atlanta plastic surgeons such as Dr. Leake, Dr. Petrosky, and Dr. Musarra use suction assisted lipectomy to remove unwanted fatty deposits in these areas. They also offer alternative treatments such as LipoDissolve, which uses liquid compound injections to reduce subcutaneous fat.

"Liposuction specifically targets fat cells that don't respond to diet or exercise," adds Dr. Leake. "The results are best when the patient continues to maintain a healthy lifestyle after surgery and allows for a small amount of downtime to get the best possible results."

More and more people considering their options for less extensive Atlanta plastic surgery procedures at the practice want to be able to enjoy an improved appearance before summertime comes to an end, and the doctors at Plastic Surgery Center of the South work closely with each patient to find options that satisfy this goal.

Plastic Surgery Center of the South ( is located in Marietta, Georgia, only minutes away from Atlanta and many of its suburbs. The practice's three board-certified plastic surgeons have over 70 years of combined surgical experience. Most of the cosmetic surgery procedures they offer are performed at the practice's state-of-the-art outpatient surgical facility, which offers the latest safety innovations and modern creature comforts. All of the surgeons also retain staff privileges at nearby WellStar Kennestone Hospital and Marietta Surgical Center for more extensive cosmetic or reconstructive surgeries.
