Liposuction

⌽ This is an informational page. To return to the main Liposuction section, click here.

Liposuction is a very common plastic surgery procedure where your body’s excess fat is suctioned out through canulas inserted through small 1-2 cm stab incisions that heal very well. It is ideally used for patients looking to establish a better body contour and not a substitute for weight loss. Optimal results are obtained after you have reached your weight loss goal.

Improving your appearance is a positive step towards increasing your confidence and self-esteem. Living in a society which judges beauty based on physical attributes, more and more individuals are seeking a body that diet and exercise often fail to deliver. Mommy-hood, bad genes, or hormonal changes, give us resistant pockets of fat that just will not go away, no matter what you do. Short of surgery, these resistant bulges will never go away. Especially in California, where everyone exercises and make it a high priority to eat healthy, this can cause significant psychological stress and wreak havoc on your self-confidence. If you have this problem, look no further than liposuction at our state-of-the-art Avant Aesthetics Beverly Hills facility for incredible results. Do away with these fatty pocket and look better than ever! Sculpt your body into one that you want.

Liposuction at our new Beverly Hills facility is a highly effective surgical technique in which excess fat and cellulite are removed from the body, between the skin and muscle tissue. This form of plastic surgery helps to improve the contours of the body and improves health as a result of lower body fat overall. A small tube known as a cannula is used for the surgery—a stainless steel tube which connects to a suction pump. The pump is then inserted through small skin incisions to remove fat from the body.

Various technologies exist for enhancing the effects of traditional liposuction. Some of the more popular ones include laser liposuction (e.g. SmartLipo, Laser Lipo), ultrasound assisted liposuction (e.g. VASER), and waterjet liposuction (e.g. Body Jet). All these techniques aim at enhancing your figure by removing your skin’s excess fat, tightening your skin, and minimizing injury to important non-fatty structures in your skin.

The Psychological Benefits Of Liposuction (Beverly Hills Office)

Looking your best is pointless if you don’t feel your best. Liposuction has the potential to bring immediate emotional gratification in addition to the physical enhancements.

Our patients who follow careful instructions after surgery find themselves with a renewed vigor and often comment that more people take notice to their “new” look. You may feel as if you have a new lease on life as you buy the clothes you’ve always wanted to wear but couldn’t fit in. Confidence begets confidence; your smile will encourage others to take notice, further perpetuating your new-found happiness.

With any major decision though, you should always learn the facts first. Schedule a one-on-one consultation with one of our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons first to see if this procedure is right for you.

The Physical Benefits Of Liposuction (Beverly Hills Office)

Many parts of the body are stubborn to the affects of a good diet and regular exercise. In those cases, liposuction at our Beverly Hills office is the only viable alternative to tone or trim unsightly areas of fat. Patients are able to customize their experience by choosing exactly where the fat will be removed during surgery. In addition to removing cellulite, liposuction removes the fat cells that push through the collagen tissue below the skin’s surface; this helps to remove cellulite and it aids in cellulite prevention.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) conducted a study in 2011 and found that people who undergo liposuction experience lower levels of triglycerides and lower white blood cell counts. Since high levels of triglycerides are linked to elevated risk of cardiovascular disease, the decrease in those levels post-surgery is substantial and it promotes a healthy heart for the patient. The September 2011 study by the ASPS also noted an 11 percent decrease in white blood cells. Ailments such as heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure are linked to elevated white blood cell counts, so liposuction at our gorgeous new Beverly Hills office can help lower your risk of developing those illnesses.

As a rule of thumb, high quality surgery is usually never at a “budget” cost. The cost of liposuction in Beverly Hills is often the first thing that most people consider, but quality should be the ultimate determining factor. To experience a smooth and safe surgery, the surgeon’s skill and experience should be weighed more heavily than the price. For the best care possible and to rediscover a more youthful and energetic part of you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Liu or Dr. Kwon—the right plastic surgeons for your liposuction in Beverly Hills.

What is a contoured abdominoplasty and why combine a liposuction procedure with a tummy tuck procedure in Beverly Hills? The reason this  variation of a traditional tummy tuck was developed (also known as a “contoured abdominoplasty”), is simply because many found that the  combined procedures produced incredible results for a certain body type.

Moreover, individuals who opt for the tummy tuck are often left with a thick and fatty abdominal wall of “subcutaneous” tissue. When that tissue is re-draped back to the frame of the body the final result is not always ideal. Liposuction also isn’t the best procedure for many individuals, leaving them with loose sagging skin. When liposuction is combined to the tummy tuck procedure the abdominal wall skin flaps are able to be thinned out. This makes for skin far better for re-draping; all leading to a much more well-defined figure. A more well-defined figure is the goal of having weight loss surgery done. The combination of Liposuction plus and abdominoplasty seems to have led the charge in terms of a balanced body contouring procedure or post-weight loss surgery, which is very effective for a wide swath of people.
