Liposuction

Liposuction

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that eliminates excess fat in areas that are difficult for many of us to slim down naturally. Liposuction targets these unyielding pockets of fatty tissue and does the work diet and exercise can’t always complete, fostering a slimmer, more sculpted appearance.

A liposuction procedure can often be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as a tummy tuck or breast reduction. The removed fat is sometimes used for transfer to other areas of the body where more volume may be desired such as the hips, buttocks, breasts, or the face for a more balanced and contoured shape.
The most commonly treated areas include the following:

  • Abdomen and Flanks (“Love Handles”)
  • Arms
  • Axilla and bra Line
  • Thighs and knees
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Chest
  • Breasts
  • Neck and jawline
  • Calves and ankles

Dr. Sepideh Saber is a board-certified plastic surgeon who consistently achieves beautiful results for her patients and understands how to perform liposuction in the safest and most effective manner possible.

Benefits of Liposuction

  • Reduces excess fat from hard-to-slim-down areas
  • Balances out proportions
  • Provides a more contoured appearance
  • Long-lasting results (so long as weight is maintained)

Is Liposuction Right for You? It is important to note that liposuction is not a weight-loss tool and should not be used to replace regular exercise and a good diet. Patients should have realistic expectations and remember that liposuction cannot eliminate loose skin.

What is the Process for Liposuction?

Consultation

Before scheduling your procedure, Dr. Saber and her team will discuss your goals and address any questions or concerns you may have. You will be given instructions on how to best prepare for your procedure, what to expect, and how to optimize the recovery process.

The Procedure

Liposuction is done on an outpatient basis. The procedure will begin with either sedation or general anesthesia, both of which are always administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. In some cases, small areas can also be addressed under local anesthesia only. Dr. Saber will make tiny, strategic incisions in natural skin creases so that any scarring is minimal. A thin cannula is then used to suction out the fat from unwanted areas. The process is carefully repeated throughout the desired area ensuring that the final result appears natural and well-balanced.

What is the Recovery Process Like? You will experience some swelling and bruising in the treated areas. Compression garments are used to minimize these symptoms during the healing process. Dr. Saber will provide you with specific instructions as well as prescriptions for pain medication and prophylactic antibiotics to ensure a successful recovery.

In general, most patients can return to work in just a few days and resume light activities within two weeks. As the swelling subsides, patients can expect their final results to continue to improve in the months following the procedure. Any remaining scarring will also fade during this time.
