Liposuction at South Coast Plastic Surgery

Are you having trouble getting rid of body fat through diet and exercise alone? Do you want better definition of the muscles that you have worked so hard to achieve at the gym? Then it’s time to discover liposuction at South Coast Plastic Surgery in Ladera, CA!

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to remove stubborn body fat that may not respond to diet and exercise alone. Liposuction can be highly targeted, meaning if you have a roll of stomach fat or fat underneath your chin, it can help you get the results you may not have otherwise achieved through diet and exercise. While liposuction is not a weight-loss treatment, it can give patients the boost of self-confidence they need to continue following a healthy lifestyle regimen.

How Does It Work?

Liposuction is performed by making a small incision in the targeted treatment area. Tumescent fluid containing numbing medicine and medicine to reduce blood loss is then injected into the area that will have fat removed. A small cannula is fed through the incision to the fatty tissue. The cannula can be used to manually break up the fat tissue. Once the fat is broken up or liquified, it’s sucked out through the cannula, resulting in significant and noticeable fat reduction. Some patients with poor skin laxity may want to combine their liposuction treatment with skin-tightening surgery like Renuvion(R), which the plastic surgeons at South Coast Plastic Surgery offer.

Am I a Good Candidate For Liposuction?

You’re a good candidate for liposuction surgery if you have stubborn fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise. Ideal candidates should have good skin laxity that can support the results of their liposuction surgery. The best candidates are healthy nonsmoking individuals with realistic expectations for their procedure. You should be at or around your ideal body weight and have a stable weight.

What Results Will I See?*

Initial results can be seen within a few days once the swelling subsides. The results will continue to get better for about three to four months after the surgery as the skin retracts and shape takes final form. Results include a slimmer profile, with a more contoured treatment area.

What is the Recovery Like?*

Most patients take about three to five days off from work to recover from post-surgical swelling and bruising. You will need to wear a compression garment around the treatment site to help reduce swelling and to help achieve your final contour.

The plastic surgeons at South Coast Plastic Surgery want you up and walking the day of surgery, to keep the circulation in your legs going and to reduce the risk of a clot in your legs. Most patients can resume their normal activities about three to four weeks after surgery. Strenuous activity can usually be taken up about four- to- six weeks after the procedure, or whenever your plastic surgeon signs off.
