Liposuction

WE TAKE PRIDE IN PRICE TRANSPARENCY

Liposuction

There are few things more annoying than eating right and working out hard, and still not seeing the body contour that you desire. Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, is a surgical procedure to permanently remove unwanted pockets of fat. Safe and extremely effective, liposuction works almost anywhere on the body, restoring a contour that has perhaps gotten out of balance. The most common target zones for men and women are the abdomen, hips and thighs. The end result of liposuction is a smoother, flatter and more sculpted you.

Benefits of Liposuction

One of the greatest things about liposuction is the fact that it is extremely versatile. Dr. Nazarian can address almost any area of the body including the:
  • abdomen
  • inner thighs
  • outer thighs
  • flanks/hips
  • upper arms
  • neck
  • chin
  • back
  • knees
  • bra roll
  • mons pubis
  • banana roll under the buttocks
The other big benefit of liposuction is that it allows Dr. Nazarian to be extremely precise. She can literally carve away specific areas of fat in order to reveal your ideal body contour. This is what really sets liposuction apart from the non-surgical fat removal techniques, and why it is still considered the gold standard when it comes to body contouring.

Liposuction is Not About Weight Loss

However, it is important to keep in mind that liposuction is not a weight loss technique. This is something that a lot of patients don’t understand. With liposuction, Dr. Nazarian is re-contouring your body into its proper proportion. This is why it is often called liposculpture. Depending on how much fat is removed, you will lose some pounds, but these results are only as permanent as your ability to maintain your weight.  The fat cells that are removed with liposuction are gone for good. But if you gain weight after your procedure, typically in excess of 10 pounds, your remaining fat cells will get bigger which can throw off the new contour that you’ve worked so hard to achieve. This is why Dr. Nazarian encourages her liposuction patients to:
  • be at a maintainable goal weight at the time of surgery
  • embrace a healthful eating plan
  • exercise regularly
In general, most patients are feeling so good about themselves after liposuction that making their health a priority is not a problem.

Ideal Candidate for Liposuction

Liposuction is great for both men and women of all ages. An ideal liposuction candidate is a patient with stubborn areas of fat that seem resistant to a healthy lifestyle. If you are eating your weight in kale salads, work out regularly, and still have love handles then liposuction may be the answer. As with any surgical procedure, a potential patient must be in good overall health, a non-smoker and ideally within 15 pounds of a maintainable goal weight.

Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction can be performed under general anesthesia in a surgery center or under local anesthesia in the office. The right choice for you is going to depend on your individual needs, and the size of the treatment area. All of these options will be discussed with you in detail during your initial consultation. During your liposuction procedure, Dr. Nazarian will first inject a saline solution that contains adrenaline and a local anesthetic into a series of small incisions in the target area. This tumescent technique allows her to:
  • remove a larger volume of fat
  • decrease post op bruising
  • reduce swelling
Dr. Nazarian practices what is called Power Assisted Liposuction. With this type of procedure, a specialized cannula, which is a thin, metal tube, is inserted into the treatment area. This suction tube vibrates back and forth very rapidly. The vibration allows Dr. Nazarian to break up the fat with less “manhandling”. It also makes the procedure much faster and thus, better tolerated.

Frequently
Asked Questions

Does liposuction hurt?

The procedure itself is comfortable. Whether you choose to do it under general anesthesia or local anesthesia, you will not feel anything. Post op, most patients feel soreness - like a hard work-out. Obviously, the larger the target area, the more discomfort. Narcotics are provided but most patients are taking Tylenol within a few days. My team and I are here for you every step of the way. And we will do everything possible to make your liposuction experience as comfortable as possible.

Are there any liposuction risks?

There are inherent risks with any procedure especially if it involves anesthesia. But liposuction has been well studied and is an extremely safe procedure when performed by a surgeon with a lot of experience.

How much will liposuction cost?

Liposuction costs are going to vary depending on where you live, the size of the treatment area and who you see. My best advice would be to find the liposuction experts in your area and call around for quotes.

I hate Spanx. Is a compression garment really necessary?

Yes. You are going to want to wear the compression garment. It makes for a much more comfortable recovery. And a much faster one. If you are going to commit to improving your body contour, you need to commit to the recovery. It’s worth it.

I have a big tummy, but I also have some loose skin. Can I get away with liposuction or do I need a tummy tuck?

It’s impossible to say without seeing you in person. Most women who have had more than one child are probably going to be better served with a tummy tuck. However, now that I have BodyTite, it allows me to deliver pretty awesome results when combined with liposuction. The best advice that I can give you is to schedule a consultation to come in and see me so that we can discuss your options.

Does liposuction work to create a more defined jawline?

Yes. This is a favorite among my female and male patients. Not only is a crisp jawline more youthful looking, but everyone hates seeing that excess fat, especially in photos. But liposuction alone will only work in patients who have enough skin elasticity so that it can “bounce back”. If the excess fat is also combined with a lot of loose skin, you may be better served with a surgical neck lift or FaceTite. Conversely, if the fat is small and isolated to the area under the chin, an injectable like Kybella or Coolsculpting may be an option. The right choice for you is going to depend on your needs and tolerance for downtime. I take all of this into consideration when coming up with a treatment plan.
