Remove and Tighten
Liposuction is a type of fat removal that uses a suction technique to remove fat from various areas of your body. The most common areas treated by this procedure are the abdomen, love handles, thighs, neck, hips, or arms. This safe and effective way to remove fat can be used in conjunction with Renuvion, a non-surgical procedure to tighten and refresh the skin. This combination of procedures is one of the top procedures performed at West Empire Aesthetics. Contact us today for a consultation.
Shapes and Contours
In our Los Angeles Liposuction procedure, the doctor uses a cannula attached to a suction device to remove fat from specific areas of the body. Liposuction shapes and contours these areas of the body and is sometimes called body sculpting. Liposuction is considered a weight loss alternative; however, for best results, you should have a stable body weight for liposuction to be ultimately successful. Liposuction with Renuvion adds a tightening aspect to traditional liposuction.
We also offer awake liposuction for those patients who are afraid of or are reluctant to have general anesthesia. In awake liposuction, the area of the body to be treated is anesthetized using a local anesthetic, and you are awake during the procedure.
With Liposuction Los Angeles patients can eliminate unwanted fat in problem areas of the body. Unlike horror stories of the past, liposuction today is a very safe and effective way to remove fat from your body. When these fat cells are removed, they are removed permanently and can boost your self-esteem. The reshaping of your body will help determine how others see you and can improve the look and fit of your clothing.
Do it for You
When you arrive at our office for your consultation, we will discuss the areas of your body you feel could benefit from Liposuction in Los Angeles. Most healthy people without diseases which cause surgical complications are good candidates for liposuction. In addition, patients who have a Body Mass Index or BMI of under 30 are the best candidates for liposuction. Also, patients with a stable body weight and who are not planning on gaining or losing a large amount of weight usually have better results from liposuction.
The first step in your liposuction surgery is to administer either general or local anesthesia in the case of awake liposuction. After the anesthesia is infused into your body, incisions are made to insert a small thin tube, or cannula, into the fat to break it up in a controlled motion. The broken-up fat is then vacuumed through a tube and discarded as medical waste. The procedure can take one to three hours, depending on how many areas of the body you are having treated.
After the Liposuction surgery, you can expect some swelling and localized pain. There may also be some bruising in the affected area. Swelling and bruising will go away within a few weeks, and you will be able to see full results in a few months, depending on how much fat is removed. Be patient—the results will be excellent. The treated areas will be leaner and more contoured. Fat will never regenerate in the treated areas, although it may appear in others.
Walk It Off
Liposuction is a major surgery, so recovery and aftercare should be taken seriously. After surgery, your body must rest for at least one to two weeks. Settle into a sofa or bed to rest, and only exercise once the doctor clears you for more strenuous exercise. Walking a little bit each day, however, will help you avoid blood clots and keep blood moving in the treated area, which aids in healing. It is essential to eat a healthy diet to fuel your fast recovery, and limiting the amount of salt you intake will reduce swelling.
The following are common areas treated by Liposuction:
The fat cells that are removed during liposuction will never come back; however, it is important to keep a stable, healthy weight so that fat does not migrate to other areas of the body.
