"Knowledgeable and thorough - Dr. Walters was optimistic that liposuction, not abdominoplasty, was an option for me. I admit I was skeptical, because he was the only doctor I had consulted that felt this way. I am so glad I took the leap of faith, because he was skilled enough to do precisely what he promised. He beautifully sculpted a problem area, giving me exactly what I wanted: a body in proportion to itself. Follow-ups have been frequent and thorough. We might do a little bit of adjusting down the road, but I am absolutely thrilled with my results. I would recommend Dr. Walters to anyone, and should I need anything done in the future, I would not go to anyone else."- Anonymous / Vitals / Feb 14, 2017
"Amazing and impressive! - I had my first experience with plastic surgery at 21, and had breast augmentation with another surgeon in a different city. At the time I wanted very large breasts and was satisfied with my decision. Over the next ten years, my wants changed and I was looking for something different. I came to Dr. Walters, after hearing numerous amazing reviews, with the intent of having my implants removed, breasts lifted, and a new implant replacing the older one, as well as liposuction in various places. Through consultation and guidance from Dr. Walters, I came to the decision that I would have my implants removed, breasts lifted, liposuction, and fat transferred into my breasts and hips for a more natural and contoured appearance. I will admit that I doubted this a little bit, after all I have always wanted a large chest and who wants fat back into their body after it is sucked out?!?! I was nervous, but I trusted Dr. Walters. And, I could not be any happier that I did. I always hated the shape of my breasts and when I had my implants all I had was a larger version of what I hated. Dr. Walters took his time and changed that. He helped me achieve exactly what I was hoping for. He was caring, honest, and professional through the entire process and really made me feel like he not only cared about his work, but me too, as a patient. I would highly recommend Dr. Walters, and I am usually pretty hard to impress!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Jan 24, 2017
"My results were beyond expectation!!!!!!! - Dr. Walters performed my tummy tuck, fat transfer, and liposuction. After having two boys, not only did I have extra skin hanging but I looked six months pregnant. I tried everything to flatten my stomach. I realized the only way I would get my body back was surgery. My results and my experience with Dr. Walters and his staff were beyond my expectations. I look better than I did before I had kids!!! This was the best decision I could make for myself and Dr.Walters was the best surgeon!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Sep 18, 2017

Liposuction Ideal Candidates
Fat removal surgery is a terrific treatment for patients who are at an ideal weight but have troublesome areas of fat that are difficult to rid with even the most healthy lifestyle. Patients interested in liposuction should have healthy skin because liposuction is not a treatment for stretched-out skin. It's also important to know that liposuction is not a solution for weight loss. Females undergoing liposuction should have no plans to become pregnant again as this may compromise the lasting outcome. At the time of your consult for surgery, Dr. Walters will set realistic expectations.
Liposuction Surgical Technique
This treatment is completed in an outpatient setting using general anesthesia. A punch-hole incision is placed through the skin so a cannula can be inserted. The cannula is a special tool that makes it easier to work loose the fatty tissue that is being vacuumed out. After the desired amount of fat deposits have been eliminated, Dr. Jules Walters will seal the small incision. He also offers endermologie treatments (a nonsurgical skin tightening procedure) to help maximize your liposuction results which is included in the cost of surgery. Based on the amount of sections being treated, your procedure may take several hours. In the separate area for recovery, your post-op nurse will assist you with managing any discomfort and look after your treated areas until you are discharged.
What to Expect with Liposuction
You may need to stay at home for recovery from liposuction surgery for several weeks based on the amount of sections treated and the amount of fat removed. It's typical to have bruising and swelling for one or two weeks, and you should have stitches taken out 7 – 10 days after surgery. The most important thing to do following any surgery is to give your body time to rest and heal. When you decide to go back to your job after your surgery, you should remember to minimize stress and strenuous activity. To increase your strength and stamina, try walking and light workouts as recommended by Dr. Walters. Remember, you may notice some improvements soon after your surgery, but it will take around 6 months until your new body contour and shape is complete.
