First Year of Your Diet in a Day™
Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery is pleased to provide select patients with an innovative approach to liposuction that creates a dramatic jump-start to an improved body shape and lifestyle. For appropriate candidates, First Year of Your Diet in a DayTM creates an impressive transformation in body appearance.
Liposuction historically has not been designed to provide overall weight loss. It traditionally has been used most effectively to treat people who are not very overweight, but have one or more focal areas that are fuller than the rest of their bodies.
Experience with large volume liposuction, which can provide significant weight loss, has been mixed. There are large shifts in body fluid following the procedure and this can present real safety concerns. The standard of care now is to admit large volume liposuction patients to the hospital, and this creates unrealistic financial hardship and inconvenience.
Dramatic Body Change
At Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery, we believe there is a middle ground. We offer select patients liposuction designed to jump-start their dieting process. The procedure provides sufficient fat removal to see dramatic results. It may not provide the full weight loss that people desire, but it provides enough change that people are in the position to have greatly improved body image and continue the process of dieting — from a position of physical and emotional strength. Because this procedure provides a dramatic first step to lifelong change in appearance, exercise, and diet, we call the program First Year of Your Diet in a Day™.
The program is not for everyone. People must be in good overall health to be candidates. They must understand that the liposuction is a first — albeit dramatic and gratifying — step in a much longer process. They must keep in close contact with the plastic surgeon in the days following their procedure to assure maximal safety. After the initial procedure recovery, they should work at continuing good eating and exercise habits. We have relationships with professionals who can help make these adjustments successfully.
Safety Comes First
Because we value your safety, we perform all of our liposuction and liposculpture procedures in our fully certified surgery center rather than a procedure room. We do our procedures with a physician anesthesiologist to monitor your body reactions to liposuction, maintain your comfort, and protect your safety. Our team consists not only of the surgeon and anesthesiologist but also two nurses. With this full team, we are most confident that you will have a pleasant overall experience with the fewest possible risks.
For appropriate candidates, Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery’s First Year of Your Diet in a Day™ has provided safe and rewarding body changes. We find that most people who have had this innovative liposuction go on to lose more weight in the months following the procedure.
