Understanding the Procedure of

Liposuction for Men in Toronto

Liposuction versus Tummy Tuck

Liposuction is an effective way to remove stubborn fatty deposits from traditional trouble spots on the body such as the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, and neck. Using suction through a stainless steel tube called a cannula to break up and remove fatty tissue, Dr. Sean Rice shapes areas of the body into more attractive forms, rejuvenating the patient’s figure in the process. Rice Cosmetic Surgery patients, who are generally physical fit, are within the normal weight range for their age and body type, and have healthy, elastic skin are the best candidates for liposuction.

Many of the men that we see, often express frustration in that despite aggressive exercise and diet they still find themselves plagued by areas of unwanted and resistant fat. This is most common about the waistline and flanks (love handles or spare tires as they are sometimes called). This becomes very frustrating to patients who find themselves in great physical shape but are unable to get rid of these problem areas.

Variety of Options


Dr. Rice is the first plastic cosmetic surgeon in Canada to offer laser liposuction. Dr. Rice has also lectured on the technique and benefits of laser liposuction to other surgeons.

SmartLipo™ Laser liposuction differs from traditional liposuction in that the fat is easily melted by the laser. The SmartLipo™ laser also helps to coagulate small blood vessels, therefore resulting in decreased bruising. One of the most significant improvements over traditional liposuction is that laser liposuction will aid in tightening the loose skin, leaving the patient with an enhanced aesthetic result. Occasionally, laser liposuction can be used in areas such as the neck and knees as a way to tighten loose skin only.

SmartLipo™ Laser liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that employs the amazing power and versatility of lasers to melt away fat. By using a single laser fiber to heat and disintegrate fat cells inside the body, Smart Lipo™ produces significantly less bleeding, bruising, and trauma than traditional liposuction, resulting in far shorter recover times. Laser liposuction is best for treating localized fatty deposits in patients who are in generally good health and has the added benefit of improving skin firmness by boosting tissue coagulation, further enhancing the surgeon’s ability to reshape and sculpt the area.

SmartLipo™ Laser Assisted Consultation

With a few options to choose from, our SmartLipo™ liposuction consultation generally lasts from 45 minutes to an hour.  Dr. Sean Rice is present at all consultations along with a staff member where, together, they will guide you through the process, make recommendations and address any concerns that you may have. Our Toronto clinic is designed to make you feel comfortable in your surroundings. Our Consultation is no-pressure and we encourage all of our consults to shop around and select the plastic surgeon you are most comfortable with.

Rice Cosmetic Surgery’s Dr Rice is proud to be the first plastic surgeon in Canada to introduce Body Jet Water liposuction into his Toronto cosmetic surgery practice.

This revolutionary water assisted liposuction technique represents the latest in liposuction technology. It can be applied to multiple areas of the body at the same time and reduce the sometimes lumpy texture associated with the traditional tumescent infiltration technique, and all without the pain and bruising found in standard liposuction procedures. The Water-Jet Assisted Liposuction technique was developed to avoid the problems associated with tumescent infiltration used in standard liposuction procedures.

Tumescent infiltration causes tissue swelling which lowers operative accuracy and can result in serious side affects. Body-Jet Liposuction gently washes away the fat without traumatizing other structures such as blood vessels and nerves. Water-Jet liposuction has shown to be clearly superior to traditional methods because of the dramatically reduced session length and less pain. With Body-Jet Liposuction less manual pressure is needed to remove the fat and thus a simple local anesthetic can be used.

Dr. Rice is proud to be the first plastic surgeon in Canada to offer SlimLipo. Dr. Rice and his premier liposuction surgery clinic in Toronto have been selected by manufacturers of SlimLipo to be the Canadian training facility for laser assisted liposuction by SlimLipo.

Slim laser lipo is the latest in laser assisted liposuction procedures. It offers both an improved tightening effect than older lasers as well as a faster recovery time and less bruising. This amazing combination has allowed many liposuction patients to return to work in record times – sometimes on the same day. Furthermore, skin tightening and smoothing effects of slim lipo are unseen with older laser assisted liposuction devices. Many patients who are left with skin irregularities as a result of traditional liposuction (lumps and bumps on the skin) are now seeking the smoothing effects of SlimLipo at Dr. Rice’s Toronto Liposuction surgery centre.

Frequently Asked Questions

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure intended to remove excess fatty tissue from beneath the skin in order to slim, sculpt, and rejuvenate specific areas of the body. The Liposuction procedure is most commonly used to remove unwanted fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, upper arms, and buttocks. In liposuction, a surgeon makes a small incision in the skin and inserts a thin metal tube that is then used to break up and suction out fatty tissue. SmartLipo™ uses a laser rather than suction to eliminate fat beneath the skin. Typically, as many as 10 pounds of fat can be removed using liposuction.
SmartLipo™ is a revolutionary new technology that uses a laser fiber instead of suction to break up and remove unwanted fat from the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, or other parts of the body. SmartLipo™ produces substantially less bruising and swelling than traditional liposuction, as well as shorter recovery times. Dr. Sean Brian Rice, who treats patients throughout Toronto, Richmond Hill, and North York, is the only SmartLipo™ surgeon in Canada.
Liposuction and SmartLipo™ are not for everyone. The ideal candidate for either procedure is in good overall physical condition and close to his or her ideal weight but wants to slim and sculpt specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, and upper arms, that cannot be toned through regular exercise. Liposuction and SmartLipo™ are not the answer for patients looking to drop large amounts of weight with a single procedure.
Just like any surgical procedure, liposuction and SmartLipo™ do carry some risks. Infection, bleeding, and nerve damage may occur, and since liposuction removes fatty tissue from the body, the threat of losing too much fluid is also a possible risk of the surgery. If not treated, fluid loss can lead to shock, so liposuction patients should be especially careful to monitor their fluid levels during recovery after the procedure. Other possible risks of liposuction include the development of blood and fat clots, friction burns on the skin, and harmful drug reactions. Dr. Sean Brian Rice always spends time with his patients at his office serving the greater Richmond Hill, and North York area. Prior to the liposuction procedure, Dr. Rice will explain all the risks and advantages of the procedure.
While the cost of liposuction varies depending on many factors, including the physical condition of the patient and the area of the body to be treated, it will generally fall within a certain range.
Dr. Sean Brian Rice is dedicated to giving his patients throughout the Richmond Hill area complete answers about liposuction and SmartLipo™. Contact our Toronto cosmetic surgery office today to schedule a consultation.
