Winter is the time of year when most of us seem to pack on the extra pounds while we stay indoors and watch TV. With a surgical procedure called liposuction, Dr. Stephanie Power can literally suck out unwanted fat pockets that build up in regions of the body.

Liposuction is a straightforward surgical procedure that generally takes less than an hour to complete but can completely erase all signs of holiday feasting. Using the latest techniques to assist in the process, the fat is suctioned out through a small tube known as a cannula. The surgery is performed under general or local anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort throughout the procedure. Afterwards, patients typically return home wearing a compression garment to recover.
