Do you want to sculpt and shape parts of your body that resist diet and exercise? Then Beverly Hills liposuction may be perfect for you.
This popular fat removal procedure can eliminate fat in many parts of the body and give you a slimmer and more pleasing profile.
While liposuction doesn’t replace weight loss, liposuction works well for clients who are close to their ideal weight but want to eliminate extra fat that cannot be eliminated any other way.
If you’re thinking about liposuction, below are the most popular body areas for this procedure.
Liposuction is a common surgical procedure where suction removes fat from specific body areas, such as the abdomen, sides, arms, back, and thighs. This procedure is ideal for someone who eats right and exercises but still has a few pounds of fat they can’t lose.
There are several types of liposuction, but tumescent liposuction is the most common. Your surgeon makes small incisions in the target area and injects a combination of lidocaine and epinephrine into the fatty tissue.
Using these chemicals reduces bleeding and swelling in the treated body area. Then, the fat and solution are sucked out with a thin cannula.
Another option is ultrasound liposuction that uses ultrasonic energy to break down the fat for easier and faster removal.
Some surgeons are now using laser-assisted liposuction that breaks down and liquefies the fat before it’s removed. This method is especially effective for sculpting the abdominal muscles for that ‘six pack’ look that so many men want.
Most surgeons use general or IV sedation for the procedure, so you’ll need an hour or so after the procedure to wake up. Then a friend or family member can take you home.
Liposuction has been perfected over the years, and most clients recover within one or two weeks. Of course, you’ll have swelling and bruising that may take a few weeks to recede, but most are impressed with the results.
Abdomen And Flanks
As we age, it’s common to develop extra fat in the midsection that is difficult to lose with diet and exercise. Whether you’re a guy with fat hanging over your belt or a woman with love handles, liposuction on the abdomen and flanks can change how you look.
Liposuction can be used on the abdomen and sides to make a considerable change in your profile and shape. Many people who have liposuction on their abdomen, waist, and flanks marvel at how much better they look and the fashionable clothes they can wear.
Neck And Face
If you want a slimmer neckline, you can have it with liposuction. Many men and women exercise and eat right, but it’s challenging to eliminate those jowls or double chin.
With a cannula, your plastic surgeon can make a few tiny incisions and remove the fat in the face and neck that makes you look heavier than you are.
Many clients who have face and neck liposuction cannot believe how much younger and slimmer they look without that double chin!
Depending on the amount of fat to be removed, your plastic surgeon may use liposuction combined with an Beverly Hills injectable to melt away stubborn fat, such as Kybella.
Excess fat in the upper arms tends to accumulate in older women; it’s especially prevalent in women who have lost a lot of weight.
But the fat in the upper arms just won’t come off no matter how healthy they eat or hours spent on the Peloton. This is where one or more Beverly Hills procedures after weight loss can help.
Liposuction is effective in eliminating most of this fat that gives you those dreaded ‘bat wings.’ However, if you have a lot of loose skin in the upper arms, you may need more than liposuction for a slimmer look.
Women with loose skin in the upper arms may also choose an arm lift to give them those svelte arms they’ve dreamed of.
Another frequent problem area for women is the outer or inner thighs. It doesn’t matter how much you work out, the thighs can look larger than you like.
Depending on your anatomy, your plastic surgeon may be able to perform liposuction on the inner thighs, so you have a gap where the thighs no longer touch. This procedure can make you look younger and slimmer.
Chest Or Breasts
Both men and women can benefit from a liposuction procedure on the chest. In men, extra fat in the breasts is caused by gynecomastia. Chest liposuction for men can remove this fat and possibly excess glandular tissue that gives the patient the appearance of female-like breasts.
Also, women who have extra breast tissue can have liposuction to remove fat, so they have perkier breasts. But if you have sagging skin and breasts, you may need more than liposuction.
Liposuction is an effective, safe, and popular procedure that can help you meet your aesthetic goals. While it isn’t for losing weight, it can make you look slimmer and boost your self-confidence.
