ELEVATE:  What procedure did you have done?

Marla: I had liposuction done on my hips, then around the back area and on my stomach.

ELEVATE: What made you decide to get this procedure done?

Marla: I was always very self-conscious about the way I look. I’m not a large person, but after I had kids I found it harder to lose weight in problem areas, especially with a back problem.

ELEVATE: What did you experience during your procedure and recovery?

Marla: After each of my procedures, I noticed that I had a lot of bruising and tenderness during recovery, but after that, there was nothing.

ELEVATE: How did you feel about your new look after he procedure?

Marla: I’m very happy with what’s been done.

ELEVATE: What advice do you have for people thinking of getting liposuction?

Marla: I would highly recommend it to somebody who was looking to do something to feel and look better. But you need to make sure that you do your research and go to the right doctor. My sister told me about Dr. Kreidstein, and I think having someone else know who they are made me feel even more comfortable.

Ask the Doctor

Dr. Michael Kreidstein, MD, MSc, FRCSC plastic surgeon

ELEVATE: What type of liposuction procedure did you perform on Marla?

Dr. Kreidstein: Marla had superwet liposuction of the upper and lower abdomen, hips and inner thighs.

ELEVATE: Why was Marla a good candidate for the procedure?

Dr. Kreidstein: She was near her ideal body weight and had adequate skin tone in the treatment areas.

ELEVATE: What can patients expect during the procedure?

Dr. Kreidstein: We perform multiple-area liposuction under general anaesthetic so we can be confident of our patient’s comfort and focus on the artistry of the procedure.

ELEVATE: What were Marla’s biggest concerns?

Dr. Kreidstein: She was concerned that poor skin tone might leave her with loose skin after the procedure.

ELEVATE: Why should patients choose this liposuction procedure instead of other similar procedures?

Dr. Kreidstein: Choose the surgeon, not the procedure. All evidence points to excellent results arising from a skillful surgeon using the technique that he or she likes best.

ELEVATE: What advice would you give patients who are unsure about getting liposuction?

Dr. Kreidstein: Liposuction is the safest and most rewarding procedure in cosmetic surgery. No energy-based machine will ever match the results possible from a skilled surgeon performing liposuction.

ELEVATE: What are some misconceptions about getting liposuction?

Dr. Kreidstein: The biggest misconception is that you can spot-reduce fat by doing exercise. Only liposuction can spot-reduce fat.
