The city of Los Angeles naturally creates a very competitive culture for health-conscious individuals and we believe that Liposuction may be the best option for someone considering the serious removal of fat.

As dieting may be a viable option to to get rid of fat naturally, the reality lies contingent on your long term eating habits and the stinginess of fat burning from your body.

Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction Surgery?

When many people think of liposuction, they imagine immense, wobbling stomachs in desperate need of correction. But this isn’t at all what the modern liposuction procedure is about. Liposuction is about the art of body sculpting and finding the perfect you within.

Those who are into fitness are aware that it’s impossible to lose weight from specific areas through exercise and diet. This is because of the way the body functions. The body will always take fat from an equal distribution around your entire body. No matter how many crunches, sit-ups, or other exercises you do, you can’t lose fat from a specific area of your body. It’s simply not the way your metabolism works.

This means that if you’re one of the many that have natural fatty deposits around your midsection, you will never be able to lose this fat alone–at least, not without losing the precious curves around the rest of your body! Many women, for instance, find themselves mourning the loss of their chest before they start seeing results in their belly.

Muscle Building & Fat Burning vs Fat Removal

Liposuction is the only way to reliably remove fatty tissue from the stomach while retaining healthy fat deposits in the other areas of your body.

Muscle building exercises may increase your health and firm up the area, but they will often bulk up the problem spots as well. When a person diets and focuses on cardiovascular exercises to burn the fat, they lose weight by effectively shrinking the fat cells. However, these fat cells are still present and could expand again in the future. This makes it difficult, especially for patients whose bodies are too stubborn, and whose bodies do not allow them to burn stubborn fat, no matter the exercise or the diet. This is why Liposuction surgery in Los Angeles is regarded as a much higher form of effectivity when compared to dieting.

With liposuction, the fat cells are removed, ensuring that the fat does not return to the are treated.  This is what makes liposuction so incredibly important for getting that hourglass figure.

Liposuction Before and After

In which areas of the body can liposuction be performed?

Liposuction can be performed in nearly any place fatty deposits exist. This includes the: chin, neck, chest (most common in men suffering from gynecomastia), upper part of the arms, back, abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, lower legs, and other areas as needed. Many patients opt to treat several areas at once. For example, a patient may have liposuction on the hips and the thighs at the same time.

Chin Liposuction

Patients often choose their chin as a place to operate as it drastically improves a person’s appearance. Removing fat from your chin allows for a sharper jawline and much more attractive facial definition.

Recovery Time: Chin liposuction is considered the quickest recovering area from surgery.

48hours (though individual patients vary )

Arm Liposuction

Arm liposuction is a very popular procedure for those people who struggle with stubborn fat in the arms even after rigorous dieting and workout plans. Our practice treats patients with goals to achieve the “Angelina Jolie Arms” many women desire, or for women who want to diminish their excessive weight.

Recovery Time: Arm lipo is considered the second quickest recovering area of the body next to the chin.

2-3 weeks (though individual patients vary)

Liposuction for Men

For men, liposuction can be just as effective. Liposuction can be utilized to emphasize a rock hard six pack and make it look even more impressive. Again, in men as well as women there is no way to naturally target weight loss without surgery. All the ab work in the world simply won’t help if it’s hidden behind a natural veil of fatty tissue that is impossible to lose.

How Does it Work?

During liposuction, fat cells are removed from the body through a stainless steel tube called a cannula. The fat is vacuum suctioned out, which means the fat cells are completely removed from the body.

What type of anesthesia is used?

Laser Energy Effect On The Skin

At Younique Cosmetic Surgery and Med Spa, tumescent anesthesia is used. This is a very diluted type of local anesthesia, which is given in large doses to fat tissue. The quantity of liquid used and the medications included cause the skin to be temporarily firm or swollen. This, in turn, makes the blood vessels constrict and causes numbing in the treated area during the procedure.

Recovery From the Procedure

Liposuction is a simple and easy procedure with a quick recovery time and lightning fast results. This makes it an excellent way to improve your appearance and unlock the beauty and strength within. More vitally, liposuction enables you to lose fat from problem areas while retaining a healthy level of bulk.

After the liposuction procedure, patients wear a compression garment for up to 6 weeks. Walking and non-strenuous movements are encouraged, but heavy exercise must wait 2-4 weeks.

Most people can return to work one week after their liposuction surgery. Patients receive full post-op instructions on suture care and everything else they need to know for a successful recovery.

Laser Liposuction – An Alternative Method

Laser liposuction, an alternative method to traditional liposuction, uses pinpointed laser energy to liquefy fat before its removal. The laser allows for highly precise targeting of fat, which means it can be used even in the smaller and more delicate areas.

The laser also offers the benefit of skin tightening. Laser liposuction may be combined with traditional liposuction or used on its own.

SmartLipo is an additional type of laser liposuction, that is ideal for candidates looking to lose under 30 pounds of weight. If this sounds like you and you need SmatLipo near me, simply schedule a consultation using that link!
