Liposuction for Transgender Individuals

Gender is constantly evolving in both the micro and macro realms. Individuals are discovering new layers of their own gender expression day by day. Society inevitably adapts to include individuals who had previously been misunderstood or ignored. Many have come to recognize the many amazing contributions of our friends and neighbors in the transgender community, and that sense of inclusion grows warmer as we progress through life together.

Any great journey needs the ideal copilot. If you are exploring the best ways to capture your curves for all the world to celebrate, Dr. John A. Millard can help. Dr. Millard is a board-certified plastic surgeon, a pillar of the Denver medical scene, and a world-class listener. To learn how Millard Plastic Surgery can highlight your true self, contact our office in Lone Tree, Colorado.

Before and After Photos

The Art of Transitioning

Identity is directed both inward and outward. We feel a certain way in our soul and we often strive to project that feeling to those with whom we interact on a daily basis. When our body does not reflect our inner emotions, however, it can cause discord.

In order to live your truth, you may need some assistance from a skilled professional. Gender is sometimes a nebulous concept, but it carries millennia of stereotypes and normative roles to which we consciously or subconsciously adhere. For example, muscle mass and fat distribution differ between the quintessential “male” and “female” forms.[1] Women traditionally have alluring curves while men strive to achieve rugged, streamlined contours.

Your physique is your own. You should never seek enhancement to “fit in” or succumb to societal norms. However, if you wish to achieve curves to express your feminine side, body contouring may be the perfect approach

Traditional Liposuction

Even if you spend hours at the gym twisting, crunching, and sweating it out, the midsection is hard to sculpt. Belly fat accumulates over the years and betrays the silhouette we wish to display. A liposuction procedure at Millard Plastic Surgery can supplement your lifestyle in glorious ways. Dr. Millard gently bathes unwanted fat along your flanks and tummy to loosen fat cells. Once this goal is achieved, he uses a thin tube called a cannula to vacuum the bulk away. In Dr. Millard’s hands, the cannula can deliver transformative results that bring out your fierce form!

VASER Hi Def Liposuction

VASER Hi Def Liposuction

The transgender experience is one of subtelty and style. The difference between a shapely curve and a love handle may be just a pinchable inch of fat. To eradicate this blurry boundary between male and female aesthetics, consider the precision of VASER Hi Def Liposuction. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. In addition to the tumescent fluid treatment described above, the VASER method employs powerful soundwaves to soften and extract delicate layers of fat. These layers can be the difference between an hourglass shape and a V-cut torso.

In other words: VASER can fuel your triumphant transformation!


Every patient is wonderfully unique. If traditional liposuction and/or VASER are unable to meet your contouring needs, consider the state of the art advancement of SmartLipo. Powered by lasers, the SmartLipo device liquefies unwanted fat for easier extraction. Dr. Millard skillfully maneuvers the laser beams as a painter uses a brush, outlining the curves just shimmering below the surface of your frame.

Regardless of which liposuction technique works best for your figure, contact Millard Plastic Surgery. We can discuss your options and deliver your truth!

Benefits of Body Contouring

The human body is simultaneously a powerful machine and a work of art. A successful liposculpture technique must honor both of these ideals. Dr. Millard can provide a liberating look and feel through liposuction by crafting the curves of your dreams.

Benefits of Liposuction for Transgender Individuals

If you are actively transitioning, or if you are exploring the parameters of gender expression, you may greatly benefit from a visit with Dr. Millard. Eligible candidates for liposuction include healthy individuals who wish to change the contours of their body.

Liposuction is not intended as a weight loss procedure, but rather a body sculpting opportunity. If the curves on your silhouette do not reflect the person within, please contact our office in Lone Tree, Colorado.

Preparation and Procedure

Liposuction is as varied a procedure as your body demands. Whether you desire sleek dimensions or dramatic curves, your liposuction treatment can be contoured to your needs. The preparation for your procedure will be tailored to your anatomy and goals.

During your individual consultation, the Millard Plastic Surgery family will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for liposuction. These directions will be tailored to your case, so please follow them closely. 

In general, you should quit smoking several weeks prior to your liposuction procedure. Dr. Millard may also advise you to stop taking certain blood thinners in order to promote optimal circulation. 

When you arrive for your liposuction session, you will receive the appropriate anesthesia to keep you safe and comfortable. Dr. Millard can perform several liposuction techniques using a local anesthetic, but every patient varies. The duration of your procedure will depend on the extent of your liposuction needs and the degree of desired curvature you wish to achieve.

Healthy Recovery

It may take several days for the swelling to subside on your specified treatment area. During this healing process, your stunning curves will gradually emerge. Please avoid strenuous activity for at least two weeks following surgery, or more if the liposuction was extensive.

For questions about transgender related liposuction recovery and preparation, do not hesitate to contact our Lone Tree office.

Complementary Procedures 

Every great accomplishment begins with one step forward. After taking that decisive first action, you have a better sense of where you are going and what you want to achieve next. Gender actualization is a lifelong adventure. Attaining curves in one area may open your eyes to the fact that you want more definition and dimension in another area.

Consider the backside as a case in point. Dr. Millard can perform a Brazilian butt lift to accentuate your curvaceous female realness. On the other end of the spectrum, Dr. Millard’s Brozilian butt lift is designed to showcase a more manly rear end. The bottom line: there is no magic boundary between male and female. You decide where you want to exist on the gender continuum and Dr. Millard will empower you to live your legacy
