Liposuction in Irvine and Ladera Ranch

Despite careful dieting and regular exercise habits, many people are simply unable to get rid of localized deposits of fat. If you suffer from these troublesome fat deposits and your skin is otherwise youthful and firm, you may want to consider liposuction in Irvine and Ladera Ranch from the talented surgeons at South Coast Plastic Surgery.

What is liposuction?

It is essential to understand that liposuction is not a weight reduction surgery, but rather a body contouring procedure designed to improve your shape. As such, it is imperative that your surgeon not only possess the technical skill to perform the procedure, but also the artistic ability to sculpt your body to match your vision. Liposuction can create a more shapely, defined, and proportionate figure.

What is liposuction like?

Liposuction involves making a small incision and inserting a hollow tube (cannula) that can be manipulated to release the fat cells from the surrounding tissue. For the best outcome, a fluid containing a numbing agent is injected into the area, making the procedure more comfortable and limiting the risk of excess bleeding. A vacuum-pressure unit then removes the unwanted fat from the body.

For extensive liposuction treatments: Anesthesia

Though single site liposuction may be performed under “twilight” anesthesia, the procedure is typically administered under general anesthesia. Most liposuction treatments are performed on an outpatient basis, but large volume cases (greater than five liters) necessitate hospital admission for overnight observation. A tumescent solution is injected before liposuction to minimize discomfort and bleeding.

Liposuction at South Coast Plastic Surgery: Our approach to body sculpting

While there are several liposuction devices that are heavily marketed as superior instruments for cosmetic improvement, the truth is that the vast majority of board-certified plastic surgeons find that traditional liposuction is the best approach. Traditional liposuction achieves the same body enhancement as ultrasound and laser-assisted liposuction, but is considerably safer for the patient because it does not pose the risk of burns. It is also much less likely to lead to an uneven result with lumps or bumps of fat left in place, which requires a revision.

What is the recovery time for liposuction?

Following surgery, you will be asked to wear a compression garment for approximately three weeks, at which point the major swelling and bruising have resolved, with about 60% to 70% of the result becoming visible. The final result will be apparent in approximately three to four months after the residual swelling has subsided. The effects last a lifetime, as long as you maintain your weight. Even if you do gain weight, you should see an equal distribution, and not a disproportionate quantity of fat developing on the areas treated.

Liposuction for men

Liposuction is frequently performed for men to reduce and shape the abdomen, love handles, and lower back. Male DNA often programs the body to store extra fatty tissue in these areas – and once they appear, it can be almost impossible to shed fat in these areas with diet and exercise. For healthy men who suffer from unwanted fatty tissue, liposuction can help create a more defined, youthful, attractive physique.

Who is a candidate?

The best candidates for liposuction in Irvine are physically and psychologically healthy, of a normal body weight, and have one or more areas of localized body fat deposits out of proportion to the rest of their body. Liposuction is best suited for areas with firm, elastic skin. The procedure is not recommended for anyone who has had recent surgery on the area that will be reshaped, who experiences poor circulation, or who has any major medical problem.
