Liposuction Tampa

Liposuction is an effective and minimally invasive way to treat excess fat. It works throughout the body on fat that is not responding to diet or targeted exercise. The targeted approach of the procedure makes it one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures.


Weight loss, pregnancy, aging or genetics can contribute to a need for liposuction. These conditions may cause the appearance of extra fat deposits in trouble areas. Typical trouble spots may include the stomach, buttocks, back, neck, arms, thighs or hips.  Many times patients also opt to combine a tummy tuck procedure with the liposuction procedure, which will remove the excess skin that may be left after the procedure.

When to Consider Liposuction


Ideal candidates are healthy, have minimal excess skin and good skin elasticity. Benefits of liposuction Tampa may include:

  • Elimination of excess fat
  • Toning of the targeted area
  • Improvement of body contours
  • Reduction of dimples caused by excess fat deposits

Frequently Asked Patient Questions

What are the steps of the procedure?

There are many types of this procedure, but general use typically involves similar steps. Very small incisions will be made a inconspicuous points around the targeted areas. A long thin tube is inserted and fat is remove. The incisions are closed using fine sutures for minimal scarring.

How long does recovery take following the procedure?

Bandages and a compression garment may be immediately applied. This can minimize swelling and bruising. Stitches may be removed after a week, and swelling should decrease in 1-2 weeks. This will make the adjustments more noticeable.

Lifting should be avoided following the procedure. Normal activities may be resumed in 7-10 days. Full recovery may take 1-3 months.

Will there be scarring from Tampa liposuction?

Due to the inconspicuous nature of incisions, scarring is typically not noticeable. Faint incision lines should continue to fade for up to one year.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
