Liposuction is the most common plastic surgery procedure.
The reason is simple: The results tend to be excellent, and many of us have body areas
which we wish were thinner. Because this procedure is so common, and the techniques for
performing it are changing quickly, Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery has developed a specialized
center within a center focusing solely on liposuction. LipoPlus combines state
of the art equipment, specialized staff training, and advanced technology to create the best
possible liposuction results and customized recovery programs. First Year of Your Diet in a
DayTM provides appropriate candidates with remarkable body transformation.
Our medical director was recently selected to write the chapter on liposuction for the Handbook of Plastic Surgery.
This important textbook was created to teach other plastic surgeons the
most current and advanced techniques.
During the procedure, fluid is injected into the fat. This allows for easier sculpting of the tissues, and alsointroduces anesthetic and a medicine to constrict blood vessels to minimize bleeding. This technique is called tumescent liposuction. Multiple small incisions are made in areas of natural skin folds to minimize scarring, and small hollow tubes are inserted under the skin to suction out fat. At LipoPlus, we individualize out approach based on your needs. Some of these techniques include microliposuction, tumescent liposuction, ultrasound assisted-liposuction, and power-assisted liposuction. We are also pleased to offer liposculpture without anesthesia.
We customize your liposuction procedure so you will achieve the best results we can provide. To that end, we provide you with a comprehensive consultations prior to your procedure:
Your plastic surgeon will examine you and discuss recommendations for the type of liposuction procedure and recovery program to yield the best results.
The procedure is usually done as an outpatient, under general anesthesia or local anesthesia and sedation administered by a physician anesthesiologist to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
Sometimes the procedure is done with no anesthesia at all, but always in the safety and comfort of our fully certified surgery center.
Most patients have very little pain following the surgery because we administer long-acting local anesthetic as part of the procedure.
Most patients return to work about a week or less after surgery.
There may be some bruising for a week or so and some swelling for up to months following surgery.
