Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed and has been around for more than half a century. The procedure gives people a solution to those stubborn pockets of fat that don’t seem to respond to dieting or exercise. Liposuction can target pockets of fat for removal in many different areas of the body.
The most popular areas of the body targeted for liposuction are the hips, stomach, thighs, knees, calves, arms, face, neck and love handles. The procedure works by using a thin hollow tube called a cannula that suctions out fat from the body.
Liposuction involves tiny incisions and general anesthesia to ensure the patient is comfortable. Patients can resume normal activities within four to seven days after the procedure, but they should wait about three weeks before resuming physical activities like sports.
We can also combine liposuction with lipofilling to perform a breast augmentation in the same surgery.
Consult with Dr. Navid Alizadeh, a specialist in aesthetics, for more information about liposuction.
