Dr. Marvin Spann is highly skilled in performing Liposuction (“Lipo”) Surgery. This procedure removes fat from the body through a small puncture that is made in the skin using a tube-like device known as a “cannula”, which helps to loosen fat cells and suction them out. Common areas for fat removal include the stomach, hips, lower back, thighs, arms, chin, and chest. Liposuction creates a slimmer appearance and is ideal for those who are at a healthy weight but still have stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is not an alternative to a weight loss plan, nor is it a surgery to “treat” being overweight. Las Vegas plastic surgeon, Dr. Marvin Spann, offers several liposuction techniques using PAL™ Power-Assisted Liposuction by MicroAire®, which allows patients to get rid of unwanted fat to reveal a fit, youthful appearance.

"Dr. Spann did my liposuction on stubborn, exercise and diet-resistant areas on my stomach and flanks. I'm so happy with my new body. After years of struggling, now in my mid 40's and after 3 pregnancies, I have the body I always knew was possible."- Anonymous / Vitals / Feb 22, 2016
"After my granddaughter asked me if I was having a baby like her aunt, I started seriously looking at liposuction. I'm on the thin side and have tried diet and exercise to remove the bulge around my middle. I researched other facilities and options and found that none of them would give me the results I wanted. Dr. Marvin Spann was brought to my attention by his wife, Dr. Candace Spann, who I was seeing for yearly skin cancer screenings. Dr. Marvin Spann did a wonderful job on my liposuction, and a year later, I'm even happier with the results! These are both dedicated, professional, competent and caring doctors who want to make sure that their patients receive the best care. I travel from Henderson to see them because they are the best!"- D.C. / Yelp / Sep 15, 2018
"Thank you Dr. Marvin Spann for the wonderful job you did on my breast surgery and Liposuction!!! The results far exceed any expectation I held! I look and feel amazing!!! My clothes fit better, I carry myself more confidently, and I'm constantly receiving compliments on how I look. Friends and coworkers can't pinpoint the reason, and they can't get over how great I look ;) I started offering to show my breasts to everyone after surgery because I was so happy with, and proud of, the results!!! Dr. Spann's is phenomenal! Every single person who has seen my breasts, post surgery, both clothed and unclothed is floored. The comment I get most is "They look real!". Can't get better than that! Dr. Spann was attentive and his perfectionist nature meant every detail was thought about and my breasts were perfectly executed. I did not experience too much pain and was back to work (being mindful) a week later!!! I was worried that because of my liposuction I would be badly bruised and have significant pain (a friend had it done 6 months earlier (NOT BY Dr. Spann) and she was bruise beyond recognition and in pain for weeks and weeks following her procedure)). My experience could not have been more different! My bruising was minimal, as was my pain. The compression garment that I was given allowed for using the restroom without having to take it on and off, which is brilliant and saved me a lot of discomfort! The results? Wow! WOW!!! For me it was transformative both physically and mentally! I now wear skinny jeans, something that would have NEVER happened before. Finally, thank you to the wonderful staff for their professionalism and skill in making my journey through this process, effortless. The office is beautiful. You are greeted as you walk through the door by the lovely reception team. Everyone I interacted with was kind, patient and available throughout the process beginning to end. They were never bothered to answer questions and always returned calls promptly."- N.B. / Yelp / Apr 12, 2020
"I had abdominal liposuction performed on me by Dr. Marvin Spann. I am so pleased with the results. I look fantastic. He took the time with me to consult me properly, giving me the pros and cons if I added any additional procedures. His staff was friendly and kind and they took the time to make sure I was taken care of during post-op. Dr. Spann is a perfectionist with his work so he will make sure you will get the best results in the safest way."- T. / Google / Aug 26, 2020
"Life Changing Experience - Dr. Marvin Spann is the best plastic surgeon! After 3 children my body was never the same. I struggled with weight loss. I was very unhappy with my body and hated mirrors. After my liposuction my life changed. I am a completely different woman. I am happy and confident. I stand in front of the mirror and admire the woman I see. I feel amazing in anything and everything I wear. The staff at Couture are simply amazing. Dr. Spann is professional and kind. The procedure was explained in detail and I felt comfortable through the entire process. The liposuction results exceeded my expectations. Thank you Dr. Marvin and all the Couture Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Staff!!!!!"- C.C. / RealSelf / Oct 18, 2020
PAL Power-Assisted Liposuction
PAL™ Power-Assisted Liposuction is an advanced liposuction procedure that uses a gentle back and forth motion to loosen and permanently remove unwanted fat deposits from the hips, thighs, abdomen, and other areas of the body. MicroAire's® minimally invasive liposuction technique is so mild that most patients can forgo general anesthesia. Bruising and swelling are also reduced, which means that the visible results will appear sooner. In addition, less downtime means patients can return to an active lifestyle more quickly. During the power-assisted liposuction procedure, Dr. Marvin Spann uses the MicroAire® PAL system to dislodge fat from troublesome areas such as the hips, thighs, and abdomen, restoring a smooth, natural-looking contour to the body. The gentle back and forth motion simultaneously removes and purifies the fat cells, allowing Dr. Marvin Spann to preserve the excess fat for transfer into the face, hands, or buttocks for patients that desire a fat transfer procedure.
Liposuction is performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility. It is considered an outpatient procedure. On average, each body part (i.e. tummy, thighs, etc.) will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. After surgery, patients will wear a compression garment on the treated areas. It takes about a full week for the bruising and swelling to dissipate, and can take several months for the final results to appear. Liposuction will produce scars where the cannula incision was made, but these are usually small and will fade over time.
The price for liposuction will vary depending on the technique used and the extent of the surgery. The average cost of liposuction in the U.S. for the most common body parts are outlined below:
- Abdomen: $4,300-$7,000
- Flanks: $4,300-$7,000
- Arms: $4,300-$5,000
- Chin: $2,000-$3,000
- Inner Thigh: $4,300-$5000
- Outer Thigh: $4,300-$5,000
- Hips/Waist: $4,300-$5,000

How Safe is Lipo?
The media sometimes tells stories of liposuction patients who have endured bad results at the hands of inexperienced surgeons. Today’s liposuction techniques are much safer and more predictable than ever before, but surgeon skill still remains the number one factor when researching this procedure. The goal is to attain a natural and smooth result. Dr. Marvin Spann strives to provide this outcome for all of his patients who undergo Liposuction.
Is Lipo Permanent?
Fat cells that are removed during liposuction do not come back. Unfortunately, patients can still gain weight after surgery because the remaining cells can expand and become larger. However, patients who adhere to a healthy diet and exercise program will continue to see results years after surgery.
How Much Fat?
The amount of fat removed really depends on the size of the patient and their aesthetic goals. From a safety standpoint, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons recommends roughly 10 pounds of fat or less. Otherwise it is considered a high-volume liposuction, which does present an increased set of risks. It’s advised to get down to your ideal weight before undergoing a liposuction procedure.
Skin Tautness (Laxity)?
Liposuction is a surgery that removes fat and enhances the actual shape of the body. It does not address skin imperfections caused by sagging skin or cellulite under the skin. During your consultation, Dr. Marvin Spann will discuss the available procedures that address and improve skin texture. Some procedures recommended to correct skin laxity include Abdominoplasty, Thigh Lift, Neck Lift, and Butt Lift surgeries.
