Am I A Good Canidate?

Fat removal surgery is a good treatment for those who are at a healthy weight, but have troublesome areas of fat that cannot be lost with even the most healthy lifestyle. Patients interested in liposuction should have good skin laxity because liposuction does not address loose skin. It's also important to know that liposuction is not a treatment for losing weight. Female patients undergoing liposuction should have no plans to become pregnant again as this could compromise the lasting outcome. At the time of your consult for surgery, Dr. Kelishadi, M.D. FACS will set realistic expectations.

What does liposuction treat?

For countless patients, unavoidable factors such as genetics, aging, pregnancy, or extreme weight loss result in stubborn fat that does not respond to diet and exercise in the expected way. Certain medications and hormone changes (andropause and menopause) are also common causes of stubborn fat. While excess fat in any area can be hard to lose, it most commonly affects the abdomen, hips, flanks, thighs, and buttocks. For men specifically, neck fat, chest fat (gynecomastia), and abdominal fat are particularly problematic.

how is liposuction done?

Liposuction is a minimally invasive, safe, and effective fat removal solution. During your Orange County liposuction procedure, Dr. Kelishadi will insert a thin tube, called a cannula, through tiny incisions near the treatment area. Unwanted fat cells will be removed with suction energy, and the liposuction incisions will be closed with fine sutures. After liposuction, patients will need to wear compression garments to reduce swelling and promote speedy healing, comfort, and a smooth result.

  • Common liposuction treatment areas are the mid-section (waist and abdomen), the jawline and neck, the back and “bra-fat” areas (under the bra line region), the arms, and also the hips and thighs.
  • We take pride in not just removing unwanted fat, but also in achieving a noticeable level of body sculpting and contouring.
  • Although liposuction scars are typically imperceptible, Dr. Kelishadi takes great care to place his incisions within the natural lines and contours of the body so that they can be easily concealed.
  • If desired, the fat harvested during liposuctoin can be transferred to another area for added volume. Liposuction plus fat transfer is often used to enhance the butt, breasts, lips, and cheeks.

what is Bridalplasty?

A recently developing trend is “Bridalplasty,” in which brides-to-be undergo a pre-wedding set of cosmetic treatments and procedures, such as liposuction, tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and/or breast lift. Other great options are liposuction to reduce a fatty neck or bulging thighs. Ideally, such women should plan to have bridalplasty at least 6-12 months before their wedding to allow their body plenty of time to heal and postoperative swelling to fully resolve.

how long is recovery after liposuction?

Liposuction in Orange County is typically an outpatient procedure, meaning no overnight hospital stay is required. When your driver takes you home, you will be wearing compression garments and you should continue to wear them for a few weeks to encourage optimal healing. Further information follows:

  • Light, frequent walking after liposuction is permitted and encouraged while you recover, especially during the first week. Exercise, lifting, and strenuous activities should be restricted for up to 4-6 weeks.
  • Your liposuction recovery time and your amount of liposuction swelling and bruising will depend on numerous factors, including the amount of fat removed, the number of treatment areas, and whether any additional procedures were performed simultaneously.
  • You may be able to return to work after liposuction in about a week, or even less, depending on the extent of your procedure(s) and the physical demands of your job.
  • Final liposuction results, which can take up to six months or longer to develop, should reflect a slimmer, trimmer, more natural-looking figure. Liposuction results can last for many, many years in patients who are committed to maintaining a healthy weight through a balanced diet and regular exericse.

Liposuction Recovery and aftercare tips:
