Liposuction – Dr. Ashkan Ghavami
If someone were to tell you that you could remove unsightly, fatty areas from your body in just a day, chances are you’re going to be skeptical. However, with liposuction, trimming down extra fat in your belly, thighs or arms is very much a reality, and you don’t even have to spend months in the gym or exercising. When performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon, results from a liposuction Beverly Hills procedure make a world of difference.
Speedy results is the thing that liposuction guarantees that other plastic surgery options don’t. Centers like Ghavami Plastic Surgery have mastered the art of liposuction, making it as safe, painless, and aesthetic as possible for patients.
Liposuction involves much more than “sucking” the fat out of the body. Rather the plastic surgeon must possess extensive knowledge with regards to how much fat can safely be removed per session, how to maintain a fluid balance in the patient’s body after fat is removed, and how to contour and shape the remaining fat in the body to make it look as natural and complementary as possible. With Dr. Ghavami, plastic surgery Beverly Hills patients are able to get rid of their problematic fatty areas and enter the realm of newfound self-confidence. Prospective patients should call and schedule an initial consultation and evaluation with Dr. Ghavami to learn more about this safe and effective procedure.
The most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the U.S., liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat that has not responded to diet and exercise from areas such as the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, chin, cheeks, neck and upper arms. Local anesthesia or general anesthesia may be used, and the procedure can last anywhere from one to five hours depending on the amount of fat being removed.
There are several different methods surgeons use when performing liposuction, including ultrasound-assisted lipectomy (UAL) and suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL). In both types, fluid is injected into the area to be treated. Then a tiny incision is made in as inconspicuous a place as possible, and a cannula (small tube) breaks up the fat layer and suctions it out. Liposuction is an effective way to contour the body and is often used in combination with procedures that remove excess skin in places like the abdomen, arms, and thighs. Liposuction can also help create desirable facial and neck contours.
Some refer to certain techniques as liposculpture, which is in essence the same as liposuction. The most important point, is that techniques (such as UAL vs. SAL or depth of suction) can be varied according to the location being suctioned and your body requirements.
