3 Reasons to Schedule a Liposuction Consultation Today
For some, summer in Illinois means swimsuits, pool parties, and barbeques. For those who are self-conscious about their figures and want to hide certain problem areas, summer can cause serious anxiety.
Here are three reasons to schedule a liposuction consultation at The Center for Cosmetic Medicine™:
Target Your Problem Areas
Before considering plastic surgery, you should always try diet and exercise as a means of losing weight and improving your health. However, with lifestyle changes alone, it can be nearly impossible to target fat tissue in problem areas like your arms, tummy, and thighs. With liposuction, you can choose which areas you'd like to remove unwanted fat from to achieve your desired contours.
Work with a Trusted Doctor
Does plastic surgery seem scary to you? With a trusted, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Baker performing your procedure, you can feel confident that your treatment is as safe as possible. Dr. Baker has been practicing for over 40 years, and he is trained in the latest body contouring techniques. He also works closely with each patient to ensure that their results exceed their expectations.
Look and Feel Your Best
Unwanted fat tissue on your arms, abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, or back can make you feel self-conscious, especially when you wear swimsuits, tank tops, or shorts. Body contouring can help you get rid of unwanted fat tissue and achieve your desired shape. When you love your body, you'll feel more confident no matter what you wear.

Areas You Can Target With Liposuction
Though there are several obvious areas where you could receive liposuction, some may surprise you. You can receive liposuction on areas all over the body, including:
- Chin and neck
- Love handles
- Hips and back
- Upper arms
- Inner knees
- Calves and ankles
Dr. Baker in Champaign, IL, can also combine liposuction with other plastic surgery treatments in order to completely redefine these areas.
How Many Pounds of Fat
Can I Expect to Lose With Liposuction?
Though you can lose up to 10 pounds with liposuction, it isn't considered a weight loss procedure. Instead, it's a way to accentuate a healthy body weight. Liposuction can be a great way to finalize the results of a weight loss journey, tone the body following pregnancy, or remove stubborn fat deposits that won't respond to diet and exercise.
Does Liposuction Hurt?
At The Center for Cosmetic Medicine in Champaign, Decatur, and Monticello, IL, we use general and local anesthesia to ensure that your liposuction procedure is performed with as little discomfort as possible.
- General anesthesia: General anesthesia is administered intravenously and helps patients slip into unconsciousness so that they can remain asleep during their surgery.
- Local anesthesia: Local anesthesia will also be administered through an injection to numb the treatment area. Anesthesia blocks feeling in the area, ensuring that patients do not feel any pain.
What to Expect during Liposuction
When you undergo liposuction with Dr. Baker, your procedure will be performed at The Center for Cosmetic Medicine. In some cases, Dr. Baker will perform liposuction at one of the world-class hospitals in Champaign or Springfield, IL. Liposuction is an outpatient procedure, which means you can have surgery and go home to recover on the same day.
Because you'll go home on the same day of your surgery, you will also need someone to drive you home.
We Use Advanced J-Plasma® Technology for Even Better Results
Dr. Baker now offers J-Plasma skin tightening by Renuvion with all his Liposuction patients. J-Plasma® is an advanced surgical tool that uses helium plasma and RF (radiofrequency) waveform technology to precisely remove tissue and tighten the skin without trauma to the surrounding healthy tissues. The device is used after liposuction to heat and tighten tissue, resulting in smoother skin and overall, better results.
When using J-Plasma technology, our plastic surgeon will begin by creating several tiny incisions along the treatment area. He will then insert the J-Plasma device into these incisions and tighten the skin in the desired areas. Finally, he will close the incisions with dissolvable sutures to ensure minimal to no scarring.
J-Plasma also encourages collagen production, so the skin will continue to tighten and become more refined for weeks after the initial procedure.
Not Ready for Surgery? We Also Offer Injection Lipolysis
Injection lipolysis is a cosmetic procedure that "melts away" stubborn fat deposits and cellulite. The injections are made up of PPC, a natural compound made from soybeans. When injected into fat deposits, PPC triggers a metabolic process that destroys fat cells before the body naturally eliminates them.
Dr. Baker is one of a select number of physicians who have the training and certification to offer injection lipolysis. If you are interested in learning more about this non-surgical fat loss technique, schedule a consultation at our offices in Champaign, Decatur, or Monticello, IL, today.
How Much Does Liposuction Cost?
The cost of liposuction depends on how many areas you want to treat, whether the service is combined with other procedures, and other factors. Like most plastic surgery procedures, liposuction is not covered by insurance. If you are concerned about managing your budget, you can divide the cost of your surgery into several monthly payments using CareCredit®.

A facelift can reduce some of the most apparent signs of aging by tightening the facial tissues and removing excess skin. Thanks to Dr. Baker's skill, this can take years off your appearance in a way that looks completely natural.
