Even if you're close to your ideal weight, you may still be frustrated by pockets of fat that just won't respond to diet or exercise.

Drs. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Louis Boileau offer liposuction to eliminate stubborn fat and create a slimmer, sexier figure.

Liposuction is one of the most sought-after body contouring procedures at our practice in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Message us to get started.

Versatile and Effective Fat Removal

Target Problem Areas

Excess fat in regions like your abdomen, buttocks, back, and arms can be nearly impossible to remove through natural methods alone. When diet and exercise just aren't enough, liposuction can help slim and tone these areas.

Get Fast Results

Patients who receive liposuction at our Halifax plastic surgery office see swift results after a brief recovery period. Liposuction is more effective than non-surgical procedures, and less invasive than other plastic surgeries, such as tummy tucks

Look and Feel Great

Feeling insecure about your body can negatively impact your life as a whole. Reshaping problem areas with liposuction can dramatically change your self-esteem, and help you live life to the fullest.

Liposuction Procedure Techniques

Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is the most commonly used technique at our Halifax surgical centre. During this procedure, our plastic surgeon injects a fluid consisting of saline and an anesthetic to isolate fat in a particular area of the body. We make small incisions, and suction out the fat cells through a narrow tube. While tumescent lipo requires a longer recovery period than alternative methods, it is generally the best procedure for significant fat reduction in larger areas.

Vaser Liposuction

Vaser® liposuction uses ultrasound waves to break down unwanted pockets of fat. This innovative technique can be even more effective on areas of the body with dense layers of fat, such as male breasts or love handles. In this procedure, the suction tube vibrates at a very high frequency to separate fat cells from healthy tissue, making fat easier to remove and causing less trauma to the treatment area.

Personalized Care  For Your Cosmetic Goals

Each liposuction technique offers unique benefits that we will discuss with you during a one-on-one consultation. Whether our patients are seeking simple skin care or a full mommy makeover, we tailor treatment for every individual's needs. Our doctors have been providing exceptional care to patients from Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island for over 25 years.

I had a great experience at The Landings Surgical Centre. Dr. Bendor-Samuel and his surgical team were excellent. Everyone I met was kind, professional, and caring. I felt well cared and I’m thrilled with the results.

He is a very kind and patient doctor, who took the time to answer all my questions. I also went in wanting other procedures done, and he didn’t just take my money and slice me up. He talked to me about the pros and cons, and set realistic expectations.

Your Procedure Timeline

At The Landings Surgical Centre, we have made the health and safety of our patients the key focus of our practice. Here's what to expect during a liposuction procedure at our Halifax facility. 
Our doctors have provided exceptional care to patients in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island for over 25 years.

Day of Procedure

Our doctors have provided exceptional care to patients in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island for over 25 years.


We begin by administering either local or general anesthesia, depending on your medical needs and the surgical technique selected.


Our plastic surgeons create small, inconspicuous incisions in the area of fat removal. Through these access points, we inject a local anesthetic and saline solution to isolate fat cells and reduce bleeding.

Fat Removal

Next, we insert a slender tube called a cannula into the layers of fatty tissue, and manually break down the fat cells. If you are undergoing Vaser lipo, we will also insert an ultrasound probe to help isolate the fat. Once the fat cells are displaced, they are suctioned out through a vacuum pump attached to the other end of the cannula.

Finishing Touches

We replenish the body fluids lost during the procedure, and close the incisions with sutures or dissolvable stitches. In some cases, we place a drainage tube to prevent infection. The surgery is often performed on an outpatient basis, meaning we will discharge you later that same day once you wake from the anesthesia.

What to Expect During Recovery

You can expect some bruising and swelling around the treatment area, especially in the first week following surgery. Your body will likely be sore, so plan on getting plenty of rest for a few days. Take pain medication as prescribed, and wear the compression garment we have provided to help prevent blood clots and reduce the amount of swelling and bruising.

Most patients are able to resume light activity within a few days, and can return to work in five to seven days. Refrain from exercise and strenuous activity for several weeks or until the doctor has given express permission. You may experience residual swelling for a few months, but this will gradually subside to reveal the final results of your surgery.

Non-Surgical Alternatives to Liposuction

We offer a number of non-surgical alternatives to liposuction at our Halifax, Nova Scotia, practice. Patients are often drawn to these non-surgical methods of fat reduction because of their shorter recovery time, lower up-front costs, or reduced risk. While they may be the right choice for some patients, they do not create the same dramatic results as liposuction. Request a consultation to discuss your unique goals with our surgeons and find the best treatment for you. 


CoolSculpting® is a noninvasive procedure that targets and kills fat cells with freezing temperatures. While treatment does not require needles or incisions, the results will be much more subtle than liposuction. 


Belkyra® is an injectable substance designed to eliminate fat cells and correct the appearance of a double chin. The treatment can take multiple sessions, but often results in a noticeably slimmer and better-defined jawline.
