Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes targeted pockets of fat using gentle suction. While liposuction slims your body, it’s not meant to be a weight loss procedure. It’s best used to improve the shape of your body by eliminating stubborn pockets of fat. Liposuction can be used in most areas of the body, including:
Liposuction is also a treatment for medical conditions such as non-cancerous fatty tumors and gynecomastia, which is when a man’s breasts become enlarged.
Most people are good candidates for liposuction, but you’ll get the best results if you currently maintain a stable, healthy weight, and you don’t need to lose weight. It also helps to have healthy skin — firm, elastic and hydrated — and good muscle tone to support your new profile.
Liposuction is not the right choice if your goal is to get rid of cellulite, but Dr. Mirali can perform other procedures that take care of that problem, and chances are they can be done at the same time as liposuction. Some people may not be able to tolerate liposuction due to medical conditions, so Dr. Mirali will review your medical history to be sure the procedure is safe for you.
Liposuction has become a common and routine procedure, but it still takes great skill to achieve an artistic and beautiful result. Dr. Mirali has extensive experience in reconstructive surgery, full body contouring, and liposuction, which means he knows how to remove fat using liposuction while avoiding irregular contours that can occur when the procedure isn’t performed properly.
Dr. Mirali performs several types of liposuction, so after learning the body shape you want to achieve, he’ll choose the best option and make sure you know how it works and what to expect. If you have stubborn fat and want a better body contour, call Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates to schedule a consultation and learn how liposuction may work for you.
