The Contoured Body You've Always Wanted

For some of us, pregnancy, genetics and the natural aging process makes it virtually impossible to lose excess fat in areas like the thighs, hips, abdomen and upper arms.

If you’re battling stubborn, exercise-resistant fat pockets, liposuction may be the solution. A healthy diet and regular exercise are not always enough to achieve the lean, beautifully contoured body you desire.

Safe and effective liposuction for women and men

At Illinois’ PryorHealth Plastic Surgery in Rockford Liposuction is offered as a safe and effective treatment for women and men who want to look and feel their best. Liposuction involves surgical removal of excess fat cells from trouble spots and leaves you with a leaner, more contoured look. At PryorHealth Plastic Surgery, we are committed to the health and beauty of our patients, both inside and out.

We understand that trouble spots on your body can impact your self-esteem and quality of life. Let us help you reach your aesthetic goals. Contact PryorHealth Plastic Surgery today to learn more about liposuction, or to schedule an appointment. Remember, liposuction treats unwanted fat, not cellulite.

The best candidates for liposuction typically should:

  • Have the correct weight for their frame, or be slightly overweight.
  • Have skin that is firm and elastic.
  • Have overall good health.
  • Have localized fat pockets that have not faded, even after proper dieting and working out.

At PryorHealth Plastic Surgery, we consult with patients individually to review their medical histories and determine whether liposuction is the best treatment option. If you opt to have liposuction Rockford PryorHealth staff will review pre-procedure instructions to ensure safety and to produce the best results. This typically includes dietary guidelines, alcohol use and what medications you should avoid.


There are different types of liposuction and which one is used depends on the needs and goals of the individual patient.

Most patients receive some form of anesthetic before liposuction so the procedure is pain-free. Our surgeon will make small incisions and use a suction device to remove the excess fat that you have struggled to lose through diet and exercise.

The Recovery

If liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure, which it typically is, most patients recover fast. We find patients can return to work a few days after liposuction and they can resume their normal activities within two weeks.

Liposuction patients can experience some swelling, bruising and soreness for a few weeks after their procedure. An experienced PryorHealth medical expert will monitor your progress during this time. Many patients can expect to wear a compression garment after liposuction. This garment helps keep swelling down after your procedure.

The Results

Liposuction removes fat cells for good. But that does not mean you won’t gain weight after liposuction. If you do, it will likely be in untreated areas.

That’s why it’s important to incorporate diet and exercise as a regular part of your life after your liposuction procedure. All patient results may vary. Liposuction is performed for cosmetic purposes only. All patients are different and in no way will any procedure nor their recovery be alike for everyone.

The Risks

All surgical procedures carry risk. But liposuction is one of the safest procedures, and the vast majority of patients report they are happy with their results and suffer no major side effects.

If you have tried exercise and dieting to lose unwanted and unattractive fat, only to fail again and again, it’s time to consider liposuction. Contact PryorHealth Plastic Surgery today to learn how we can help you achieve the results that diet and exercise could not.
