Appropriately performed by an expert, liposuction is a safe and unmatched way to rid the body of unwanted and stubborn fat deposits and achieve new body contours that may otherwise be unobtainable. When selecting a liposuction surgeon in Nashville, TN, it is important to choose a surgeon with experience and with knowledge of cutting edge techniques. Unfortunately, too often, liposuction is being performed by physicians who are not well-trained plastic surgeons. There are no shortcuts when it comes to getting the best results from your liposuction procedure. Remember, the best time to get the perfect results is the first time! Revision, or corrective surgeries to fix “bad lipo” jobs are difficult. Avoid corrective surgery and invest in a liposuction expert from the beginning.

Liposuction Techniques

Dr. Sieveking and Dr. Claiborne offer the most advanced liposuction techniques with a proven record of excellent patients results. After completing his training in general surgery and plastic surgery at the world-renowned Stanford University Hospital, Dr. Sieveking moved to Brazil to study liposuction under two of the world’s leaders in the field – Ivo Pitanguy and Ewaldo Bolivar de Souza Pinto. Most recently, Sieveking Plastic Surgery welcomed Dr. Jeffrey Claiborne – the first plastic surgeon in the US to be fellowship trained and fully certified in SAFELipo. SAFELipo is considered by many experts to be a breakthrough in the evolution of liposuction, representing the future of body contouring (visit to learn more about the technique).

Every patient has different needs. Different fat deposits throughout the body require customized treatment to maximize the thinning and contouring effects. In their expert opinions, Dr. Sieveking and Dr. Claiborne caution patients to stay away from the fad of in-office laser liposuction. The technique is incomplete and uses laser/thermal energy to destroy fat cells. Consequently, the laser energy damages structures such as skin and nerves that can leave permanent and unwanted results.
