At Tampa Liposuction by Dr. Basssin – our specialists focus on basically 3 procedures: Liposuction, Brazilian Butt Lift, and Fat Transfer to Breasts. Dr. Bassin is one of the rare doctors in Tampa who has chosen to specialize exclusively in performing liposuction surgery.
Liposuction is the procedure everyone is talking about. With unparalleled safety and minimal discomfort, Liposuction & Brazilian Butt Lift are the most popular cosmetic surgeries in our modern era.
Downtime is very little, bruising is now minimal compared to traditional methods. More and more individuals opt to finally get rid of those love handles and add curves with a Brazilian Butt Lift.
Big changes in the methods of anesthesia and the instruments used in the procedure are all part of the positively remarkable change in Liposuction today.
Local anesthesia is injected in the fat tissue to numb the treatment area. Patients fully alert and completely comfortable during the whole procedure.
Most patients want to have liposuction done by a specialist. A liposuction specialist is someone who performs this procedure almost daily.
Focusing specifically on liposuction allows the doctor to develop experience and skills.
Liposuction is the removal of fat cells from the body by suction-assisted surgery.
With liposuction, the surgeon restores the harmonious shape of the patient’s body. Removing stubborn fat deposits can improve the cosmetic appearance of any individual.
At our office, we oer the latest Liposuction techniques – Lipo360, Aqualipo®, SmartLipo. All our fat removal procedures are supported by standard tumescent infiltration.
Our specialists gently extract fat through tiny incisions using an extremely thin tube (that looks like a straw).
Our special surgical sculpting and contouring technique is known as microliposuction. This provides a very high-level of precision.
Liposuction is not a weight loss alternative, but we often use it as a catalyst in heavier patients to push them in the right direction and give them a head start.
Lasers, water, or ultrasound may be used by surgeons during liposuction procedures to accomplish specific goals like tightening the skin or dislodging fat that may otherwise be hard to remove.
The tumescent solution consists of a combination of:
The doctors at Tampa Liposuction by Dr. Basssin have many types of technology and instruments that are perfect for many different patient types.
The primary target during a procedure is excess fat located between the skin and the muscle tissue, but our secondary target is the skin. We use special techniques and instruments to enhance skin tone and elasticity in the target areas.
Extremely small tubes suction the excess fat from the body, keeping the incision-size and scarring to a minimum.
Liposuction cost can vary greatly depending on the patient. We can explain this with 2 example cases.
An average size woman 5’2” and 135 lbs – (BMI 24.7). who desires a slimmer abdomen can expect the following costs:
Now let’s analyze the case of a larger patient with a higher BMI – 5’7” and 190 lbs – (BMI 29.8). This patient wants to have liposuction of her chin, inner / outer thighs and abdomen.
The price breakdown would be the following:
As you see the cost for liposuction depends on the size of the patient (the amount of fat to be extracted) and the number of body parts to be treated.
In general, liposuction of a larger area like the abdomen will cost more than liposuction of a smaller area, such as the chin.
Our doctor will personally discuss any costs with you. We only engage patients with simple, straightforward surgical quotes. We do not utilize high-pressure sales tactics or follow up phone calls.

This is a VERY good question and important topic when deciding to let someone re-shape your figure. There are so many fancy ads, gimmick devices, and sexy or alluring names for liposuction out there that it is extremely confusing for those considering “what is best”.
Dr. Bassin takes a lot of pride in educating the public on the types of lipo available and what each one does. We are a true lipo specialty clinic and therefore uses several different technologies for body enhancement.
Dr. Bassin prefers hand micro liposuction, smart lipo (laser liposuction), and ultrasonic assisted liposuction.
It is VERY IMPORTANT to understand the following, however:
“We use many technologies and bells and whistles when we sculpt bodies but I ALWAYS tell my patients upfront that none of that is really important. Meaning it is certainly NOT the machines that are giving patients an accurate, sculpted look but instead it is the surgeon. It is confusing to patients because there are so many ads with sexy names like vaser lipo, high def lipo, ultrasonic lipo, smart lipo, tickle lipo, slim lipo, cool sculpting, liposonix, bodyjet, etc. I am not a fan of this method of advertising or exaggerating. I would hope that patients come to us because Lipo is the only surgical procedure that we perform and therefore feel that we greatly improve their chance for optimal results.”
In the United States, liposuction is the most common cosmetic surgical procedure performed for a reason: it works and the results are dramatic, particularly for the right patients. But are you a good candidate for liposuction?
The right patient has certain important qualities. I look for patients who have realistic expectations about micro-liposuction and what it can do for them. This procedure isn’t for everyone, but there are several things I look for in the ideal liposuction patient:
If you meet the above requirements, chances are, liposuction surgery is a good fit for you and you’ll see good results from it.
If you’re unhappy with how your body is proportioned (for example, you have too much weight in the hips and too little in the breasts), then liposuction might be a good choice for you.
Liposuction cannot take the place of weight loss. What we do find, however, is that even heavier patients who engage in lipo are then more incentivized afterword to lead a healthier lifestyle. It can be a great kick start!
Liposuction is possible in almost any area of the body. Many of our patients opt to target more than one area of the body during their liposuction procedure because we offer discounts for multiple target areas and because, by targeting multiple areas, patients see much more pronounced results.
The weight of the patient and the extension of the treatment areas, determine the number of treated areas in one procedure. Doctors can only extract a limited amount of body fluid (fat cells) in a single session.
Liposuction and fat transfer (also known as fat grafting or fat injection) are procedures that complement each other very well. We offer both at Tampa Liposuction by Dr. Basssin.
A liposuction removes excess fat deposits, while a fat transfer adds volume to certain body areas.
By combining these two procedures, both men and women can re-proportion their bodies to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing effects possible.
Many of our patients seek fat transfer to combat the aging process. Adding volume to the face, hands, buttocks, and breasts can give them a youthful “lift” that knocks years off your appearance.
The results are natural because we are only transferring your own tissues from one part of the body to another!
Fat can be reinjected in the following areas of the body to add lift or volume:
In a fat transfer procedure, fat is first harvested using liposuction. Then, it is carefully prepared and purified before being injected back into the body in the final phase of the procedure.
Patients remove fat from areas of the body where there is too much and move the fat to areas of the body where it is too little.
Fat transfer is a safe, simple procedure that allows patients to add volume to the body naturally without inserting implants.
Using the patient’s own natural fat cells, there is no risk of allergy or sensitivity reactions. Most patients recover quickly from the procedure. And fat transfer offers smooth, natural-looking results that are permanent.
What to expect
Most liposuction patients have high hopes for their surgery, but it’s important that you keep your expectations realistic.
There are many misconceptions out there about what liposuction can do for patients, but I want my patients to have a realistic view of what liposuction is, and what it can do for them.
When our patients have realistic expectations, they tend to be very happy with their results.
Patients who are realistic about what they can expect from liposuction often get a boost of self-confidence along with an improved appearance, which is always my goal.
No cosmetic procedure can oer permanent results because human bodies are constantly aging.
However, patients who take good care of themselves after their liposuction surgery by eating a healthy diet and exercising moderately will see very long-lasting, dramatic results from this surgical procedure.
A refined body image and path to a newer you are possible through body contouring with SmartLipo, Laser Lipo, and Vaser liposuction which are all forms of Tumescent Liposuction Body Contouring. Dr. Bassin states "if a surgeon can truly deliver an improved figure, then just imagine the emotional enhancements that go along with it. How you feel about yourself when you wake up in the morning and look in the mirror can greatly aect your overall mood and all the interpersonal relationships with those around you."
