For decades, liposuction has been used as an effective and popular body contouring solution to help slim, sculpt, and revitalize the physique. Our Liposuction in Kirkland and Auburn removes stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to dieting and exercise from the belly, thighs, upper arms, face, and buttocks. Dr. Tseng is an experienced, skilled plastic surgeon who understands how to maximize your natural physical assets while minimizing aesthetic drawbacks.

What is Liposuction?

Despite exhaustive efforts at the gym, it may not always be possible to obtain one’s ideal physique. Liposuction in Kirkland and Auburn bridges the gap by using a suctioning device to trim excess fat, revealing a more shapely, sculpted silhouette.

Of course, liposuction shouldn’t be considered a weight-loss method. Still, it is a reliable, effective body contouring tool that can enhance the results of many surgical procedures, such as a tummy tuck, mommy makeover, or thigh lift.

Unlike other providers offering only traditional liposuction methods, Dr. Tseng goes the extra mile to address sagging skin with high-definition liposuction for total sculpting.


Renuvion is a minimally invasive procedure that heats and contracts underlying tissue. By delivering a proprietary blend of helium plasma and radiofrequency energy, Renuvion gently contracts tissue with exceptional control and precision to tighten loose skin.

While Renuvion can be completed as a stand-alone procedure for tightening tissue, Dr. Tseng pairs the treatment with liposuction to sculpt the body with enhanced results. These results include immediate and long-term effects which progressively improve.


BodyTite uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten skin non-surgically, eliminate fat, and encourage higher natural collagen production levels. The device applies thermal energy to melt fat and tighten skin with a dual internal and external approach.

An internal device delivers intense RF energy to melt fat and strengthen the fibrous septae, which connect the underlying fascia to the dermis. Simultaneously, an external applicator delivers RF energy to the skin for an increased tightening effect.


FaceTite combines fat reduction and skin tightening techniques to contour the lower face, such as the cheeks, chin, and jawline, for a more toned and youthful appearance.

The treatment uses radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) to suction fatty tissues while stimulating collagen production. FaceTite is a minimally invasive alternative to more complex cosmetic surgeries like facelifts.

A small device with electrodes delivers radiofrequency waves that liquefy fat cells while a separate tube suctions it away. The radiofrequency waves stimulate collagen fibers beneath your skin for a toned, refreshed, and smoother appearance.


Liposuction is well-known for its many benefits, including the following:

  • Slims and shapes the treatment site
  • Removes stubborn fat
  • Improves body proportions
  • Creates a more shapely and attractive physique
  • Enhances clothing options
  • Boosts self-confidence and self-image

High-definition liposuction has the following additional benefits:

  • Less post-op swelling
  • Shorter recovery period
  • More precise fat removal
  • More reliable fat transfer results
  • A more convenient and comfortable procedure overall

Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction is a fat-loss technique and not a way to shed pounds. Therefore, the best candidates for liposuction in Kirkland and Auburn:

  • Are at or near their ideal weight
  • Are healthy, non-smokers free from any significant medical issues that might interfere with their treatment
  • Have realistic expectations for their outcome based on a private consultation with Dr. Tseng

Before & After

What Can I Expect From the Procedure?

During liposuction, Dr. Tseng creates small incisions at the target zones. A thin cannula is inserted into the incisions to eliminate unwanted fat, either discarding or saving it for a future fat transfer procedure. Liposuction can be expedited using cutting-edge technologies such as Renuvion, BodyTite, and FaceTite. 

Liposuction takes 1-3 hours and is performed under general or local anesthesia with IV sedation. After surgery, a bandage is placed to support tissue healing. You may need to wear a compression garment to help minimize swelling and protect your new, improved contours.
