Now among the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, liposuction (also known as "lipoplasty" or "suction lipoplasty") may be performed using a variety of techniques including ultrasound assisted (UAL), power assisted (PAL) and tumescent. Dr Saber will determine which type of liposuction will best suit your body type and goals.
You may be a candidate for liposuction if you have excess subcutaneous fat, which is resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction may also be desirable if you wish to change the contours of your body. Commonly involved areas are the anterior part of the neck, under the chin, upper arms, male chest/breasts, back, abdomen, waist, hips (saddle bags), thighs, inner knees, calves, flanks (love handles) and ankles.
Many liposuction patients are near normal weight and desire permanent contour changes. Improved liposuction techniques now allow larger amounts of fat removal. Liposuction can be useful to heavier persons as well. Liposuction is intended to produce a permanent improvement in the contour and proportion of the treated areas. A more flattering figure or physique, in or out of clothing, is another goal of liposuction.
Liposuction is routinely performed on an outpatient basis (day surgery). General anesthesia is used frequently for safety and comfort, but in select cases can be performed with local anesthesia alone or with sedation. Small suction tubes (cannulas) are inserted through very short incisions placed in inconspicuous locations near the fat deposits, and excess fat is removed.
