BEFORE & AFTER GALLERY
what is HD Liposuction?
Our signature HD Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves removing excess fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, and arms. The procedure is typically performed using a thin tube called a cannula, which is inserted through small incisions in the skin. The cannula is connected to a vacuum-like machine that suctions out the fat from the targeted areas. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure but rather a body contouring technique that helps to improve the shape and proportion of the body by removing stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction can be performed on its own or in combination with other cosmetic procedures to achieve the desired results.
AT A GLANCE
WHO IS A GOOD
CANDIDATE FOR Liposuction?
Before you choose to undergo liposuction in Beverly Hills, you should understand that this is not a weight-loss procedure. While liposuction permanently removes fat cells, it is not suitable for those who should lose a significant amount of weight for their health. Therefore, good candidates this procedure are at a stable weight and within 30% of their ideal, healthy weight. You should also have firm and elastic skin so that you are not left with excess loose skin after the procedure. Otherwise, good candidates should be generally healthy and, ideally, nonsmokers.
HOW IS liposuction performed?
Dr. Ourian’s Beverly Hills Liposuction procedure may be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the surgery. To perform liposuction, Dr. Ourian will first make a small 5 millimeter incision or series of incisions at the treatment area. A cannula, or a thin, hollow tube, is then inserted into the incision. The cannula will first be used to manually loosen the excess fat using a controlled motion using a saline solution called tumescent. Finally, the fat will be removed using suction and the incisions will be closed using sutures.
WHAT IS Liposuction
After your procedure, you can expect swelling, mild bruising, and some soreness. You will be be required to wear compression garments to help control swelling and preserve your new shape during the healing process. Dr. Ourian will advise how long you should continue wearing these garments. Because of swelling, your final results will not be visible immediately after the procedure. You can expect swelling to subside, revealing your final results, at about 6 months after the procedure.
After liposuction, most patients can return to work or other day-to-day activities within 1 week, depending on whether or not their jobs are physically demanding. More strenuous activities, like exercise, can typically be resumed after about three or four weeks.
