The process of eliminating body fat through a specialized suction procedure is a successful way to improve specific contours. If months in the gym have not helped you shed those last inches of abdominal fat, or you are storing some extra weight in the thigh area, Dr. Tavoussi can provide liposuction.
Areas that Dr. Tavoussi can treat include the hips, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, chin, cheeks, abdomen, knees, and neck. There are patients that desire fat removal from more than one location, and Dr. Tavoussi will use the best technique to give you the shape you desire.
Evaluation & Planning Before Liposuction
Before Dr. Tavoussi can provide any treatment, he will begin with a thorough evaluation to determine the safety and effectiveness of liposuction. It is ideal that a patient has very healthy, firm skin that can adapt to a loss of bulk. It is not intended for weight loss, and it typically works best on individuals that already have a good diet and exercise habits. The physical part of the consultation is going to help Dr. Tavoussi get to know your body type so that it’s easy to recommend the appropriate treatment.
Going Through Surgery & Recovery
Surgery is not complex, and most patients run into no complications that would prevent returning home the very same day. A larger area, such as the thighs, will take longer for fat removal than simply eliminating bulkiness from beneath the chin. Recovery typically includes taking antibiotics to prevent infection, wearing an elastic compression garment to minimize swelling, and taking it easy for a few days. Side effects might include soreness or a stiff feeling in the treated area, as well as some cases of fluid drainage, bleeding, and numbness. There is no need to worry as you are expected to heal very rapidly after this type of treatment.
Dr. Tavoussi is going to explain the details of surgery during the consultation, but it is important that you ask questions to learn everything you can about the desired procedure. Liposuction can provide permanent results if you are careful to avoid gaining weight and continue to maintain healthy habits. Otherwise, you could need additional treatments in the same areas once the fat has a chance to accumulate again.
