Liposuctionthe world's safest and most popular body contouring technique

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is the number one cosmetic procedure performed in both the US and abroad, sought out by men and women of all ages to help trim, tone and revitalize areas of the body besieged by unwanted fat deposits. While diet and exercise can be successful in contributing to general weight loss, there are many stubborn regions of the back, thighs, hips, arms, chest, neck and chin that simply defy these ordinary attempts at improvement. When performed by Dr. Lahijani, one of the top providers of liposuction Los Angeles & Beverly Hills has to offer, lipo can create sleek, slender contours while boosting self-confidence and making clothes fit better.

During the procedure, a slim tube called a cannula is inserted through a small incision at the treatment site. Unsightly fat cells are then suctioned out of the body through the tube, while the surrounded muscle, skin and tissue remain unharmed. While lipo can dramatically improve body shape and remove up to 5 lbs of body fat, it is not considered a treatment for obesity, or a solution for eliminating cellulite.

What happens during surgery?

Liposuction is typically performed under general anesthesia, but if the doctor approves, patients may elect to undergo local anesthesia instead. Depending on how many areas are treated and the amount of fat to be suctioned, the procedure may last anywhere from 1 to 4 hours. The doctor will clean and mark the target areas before making a small incision through which he will thread the cannula. In some cases, a tumescent fluid is first introduced into the cells in order to help break up the fat prior to suctioning. Once the fat has been removed, the doctor will suture the incisions and dress the wounds.

What can I expect from liposuction recovery?

After surgery, the patient may be fitted with a compression garment, along with drainage tubes. These accessories facilitate a rapid and complete healing process, helping to minimize swelling and bruising. Dr. Lahijani will provide you with a detailed aftercare plan as well as a prescription for the appropriate pain medications. While you may shower after the first 24 hours, activities such as swimming and exercise are discouraged for the first 2-4 weeks. Most clients find they are ready to return to work within 3-5 days.
