Liposuction / Liposculpture RESULTS

What is Liposuction / Liposculpture?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body. It is a popular cosmetic procedure that can help improve body contour and achieve a more proportionate appearance. Dr. Chahin uses Vaser ultrasonic assisted power liposuction and generally couples this procedure with this use of Renuvion helium plasma technology to aid in skin tightening and rejuvenation.
During liposuction, small incisions are made in the targeted area, and a thin, hollow tube called a cannula is inserted. The cannula is used to suction out the excess fat cells, contouring the body and improving its shape. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, depending on the extent of the treatment and the patient’s preferences.
Liposuction can be used to address areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, back, and neck to name a few. It is important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss method or a solution for obesity. Instead, it is best suited for individuals who have stable body weight but struggle with localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.

What is the process?

It involves several essential steps to remove unwanted fat and achieve a more sculpted physique. It begins with a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Fadi Chahin, where the patient’s aesthetic goals and medical history are discussed. He will evaluate the patient’s body shape and identify areas with excess fat, tailoring a personalized treatment plan to address their specific concerns. During the procedure, small incisions are made in the strategically placed areas that are easy to hide, and a cannula is inserted to suction out the excess fat. Dr. Chahin employs precise techniques to contour and sculpt the treated areas, ensuring natural-looking results. Liposuction or liposculpture can be performed under local but most often times under general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the treatment. Recovery typically involves wearing compression garments and following post-operative instructions to minimize swelling and promote proper healing. The results of the procedure become more apparent as swelling subsides, providing patients with a more defined and proportionate body contour.

Benefits of Liposuction / Liposculpture

Improved body contour

Liposuction can remove excess fat deposits from specific areas, resulting in a more sculpted and proportionate body contour. It can help address stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, enhancing the overall shape and symmetry of the body.

Boost in self-confidence

By achieving a more desirable body shape, liposuction can help improve self-confidence and body image. Patients often report feeling more comfortable and satisfied with their appearance after the procedure.

Targeted fat reduction

Liposuction allows for precise fat removal in specific areas of the body. It can target common problem areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, back, and neck, helping to create a more balanced and harmonious physique.

Long-lasting results

The fat cells removed during liposuction do not typically regenerate. This means that the results of the procedure can be long-lasting, especially when accompanied by a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and a balanced diet. However, it is important to maintain a stable weight to optimize and sustain the results.

Versatility and customization

Liposuction is a versatile procedure that can be customized to meet the individual needs and goals of each patient. It can be performed as a standalone procedure or combined with other surgical or non-surgical treatments to achieve the desired outcome.

Minimal scarring

Liposuction incisions are typically small and strategically placed to minimize visible scarring. The incisions are often located in inconspicuous areas or within natural body creases, resulting in minimal scarring that tends to fade over time.
Procedure Timeline
During the consultation, you will meet with Dr. Chahin to discuss your goals, concerns, and medical history. Dr. Chahin will evaluate your candidacy for liposuction, assess the areas of concern, and explain the procedure in detail. Dr. Chahin will also provide information on the expected outcomes and potential risks.
Before the surgery, you will receive specific instructions to prepare for the procedure. This may include stopping certain medications, arranging for someone to drive you home after the surgery, and fasting for a specified period. Dr. Chahin may also order pre-operative tests, such as blood work, to ensure your readiness for the procedure.
On the day of the surgery, you will be administered anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Dr. Chahin will make small incisions in the targeted areas and use specialized techniques to remove excess fat deposits. The length of the surgery depends on the extent of the treatment and the areas being treated.
After the surgery, you will be monitored in a recovery area until the effects of anesthesia wear off. You may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated areas. Dr. Chahin will provide instructions on how to manage post-operative symptoms, including wearing compression garments and taking prescribed medications. It is important to rest and allow your body to heal during this time.
Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your healing progress and address any concerns. During these appointments, Dr. Chahin will remove any sutures, assess your recovery, and provide guidance on post-operative care. They will advise you on when you can resume normal activities, including work, exercise, and other physical activities.

Is liposuction a weight-loss procedure?
Liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. It is designed to remove localized pockets of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction can help contour and shape the body, but it is not a solution for overall weight reduction.
Are the results of liposuction permanent?
The fat cells removed during liposuction are permanently eliminated. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after the procedure to prevent new fat cells from developing. Weight gain can affect the remaining fat cells in the body, potentially altering the results of liposuction.
