BUCKY Plastic Surgery



Minimally invasive fat removal technique for targeting and eliminating stubborn pockets of fat, as well as tightening the skin for improved symmetry, proportion and contour.*

Despite routine healthy diet and exercise, many people – even those with a healthy BMI – still struggle with problem areas of stubborn body fat on the stomach, thighs, flanks aka “love handles”, upper arms, and more.  At the Bucky Body Center, we understand that you may not need, be ready or prepared for traditional surgical liposuction, which has long been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. We’re pleased to offer a new water-based mini-liposuction service that we call “microsuction.”

What is Microsuction?

Microsuction is a water-based micro liposuction procedure that removes areas of stubborn fat with less bruising and less trauma than traditional liposuction techniques. Additionally, because this procedure employs a gentler fat removal technique it only requires a local anesthetic, and is safer than traditional liposuction, while providing high patient satisfaction.1 Enjoy similar body slimming and shape results of traditional liposuction without the same downtime or OR visit.

Why We Love Microsuction

Our Microsuction procedure is an effective, minimally invasive fat removal technique for the body that is an ideal option for targeting and eliminating stubborn pockets of fat, as well as tightening the skin for improved symmetry, proportion and contour.2

Reduces fatty pockets in multiple locations throughout the body

Less invasive and less recovery time than traditional liposuction

Performed through small incisions that are not visible once healed

Doesn’t require general anesthesia

Improves body contour and shape

Slims the body

Candidates For Microsuction

Good candidates for liposuction are people with realistic expectations who don’t smoke and are in general good health. Those with firm skin that retains healthy elasticity and are within 30% of their ideal body weight will have the best results.3

Getting Ready For Microsuction

In general, you don’t have to worry about doing too much prep to get ready for your microsuction. In order to get the best results, you should quit smoking at least one month before your appointment. Of course, the team at Bucky Body will be here for you if you have any questions before your procedure! 

Microsuction Recovery

Our microsuction procedure utilizes tiny incisions and gentle movements to minimize discomfort and expedite recovery and optimize results. Possible side effects include minor swelling and discomfort that will naturally subside in the days following.

Microsuction Results

Microsuction results can be dramatic and greatly improve body contour and the appearance of the areas treated including the waist, hips, thighs and arms. Results are immediate, however, final shape will be apparent in roughly 2 to 3 months, when any swelling has subsided and the skin has fully tightened.
