Here Is What You Should Know

Sometimes the amount of exercise and diet we do does not get rid of the stubborn fat we want to lose. This is called diet resistant, exercise resistant fat. The goal of liposuction is to remove this unwanted fat from the body to restore tighter, slimmer body contours.

More than 250,000 liposuction procedures were performed in 2018, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

Why Should I Get Liposuction?

Liposuction is a good alternative for people who are at their ideal body weight but need extra help removing stubborn pockets of fat in places like the torso, arms, face, and neck.

Liposuction is not a weight-loss tool, but it can be beneficial in providing a sculpted, toned physique.

This procedure can also be successful in treating certain medical conditions including:

  • Lymphedema––Liposuction can minimize discomfort, pain, and swelling caused by excess fluid collecting in tissues
  • Gynecomastia––Liposuction can minimize the swelling caused by enlarged male breast tissue
  • Drastic weight loss––After extreme weight loss, a person may have excess fat and flabby skin to remove
  • Lipomas––Liposuction can remove benign, fatty tumors like lipomas

Where Can I Have Liposuction?

Liposuction can have drastic effects on improving body contours by suctioning away unwanted fat cells. This procedure can target many areas on the body including:

Chin liposuction––Remove excess fat from the chin to restore a defined profile

Neck liposuction––Remove excess fat on the neck often called vertical banding

Arm liposuction––Remove excess fat from the arms to reveal toned, slender arms

Can I Combine Liposuction With a Tummy Tuck?

It is very common to combine a tummy tuck procedure with liposuction. In a tummy tuck surgery, excess skin and fat are surgically removed, tightening the abdomen. Liposuction improves the results by toning the body contours.

The cost of a liposuction procedure in Los Angeles can vary significantly depending on the areas being treated, the size of the area, surgical fees, hospital fees, and anesthesia fees.
