Liposuction

Even people who lead healthy lifestyles, including regular exercise and nutritious eating, often remain frustrated by localized pockets of fat and unwanted bulges. Stubborn fat deposits in areas such as the lower abdomen, back, hips, neck, and legs can make you self-conscious about your appearance. Liposuction can help patients from Glendale, Pasadena, and throughout Southern California get the proportional contours they desire.

Is Liposuction Right for You?

Liposuction is consistently one of the most popular body contouring procedures performed in the U.S. One of the reasons is because it’s an effective solution for women and men who are bothered by excess fat in areas that resist their efforts to keep fit and toned.

People who can benefit from liposuction are:

  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Within 30% of their ideal weight
  • Individuals with firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone
  • Non-smokers

They also have a positive outlook and have specific yet realistic goals in mind for body contouring. It’s important to understand that liposuction is not weight-loss surgery. If you’re overweight, you should get close to the weight you want to maintain before scheduling liposuction surgery.

What Areas Can Liposuction Treat?

Liposuction is a versatile treatment that can remove unwanted fat from virtually any area of the body and face when performed by a plastic surgeon with Dr. Vartany’s expertise. Some of the most common areas targeted by liposuction include:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Lower back
  • Calves
  • Upper arms

Dr. Vartany can adapt liposuction techniques for various areas, and he creates surgical plans based on each patient’s specific concerns.

How Is Liposuction Performed?

If you’ve spent any time researching liposuction online, you’ve probably discovered that there are multiple liposuction techniques. Traditional liposuction—called tumescent liposuction—involves making small incisions and saturating the treatment area with a solution that includes both a local anesthetic and epinephrine, which causes the fat to swell and become firmer.

Dr. Vartany then inserts a thin tube called a cannula, which he moves to break up the fatty tissue and suction it from the body. Cannulas vary in size depending on the area of the body being treated. In many cases, the incisions are small enough that no sutures are needed to close them.

Depending on the treatment area, liposuction may be performed using a local anesthetic or under general anesthesia. A general anesthetic is most often used when liposuction is being combined with body contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck.

How Long Is Recovery After Liposuction?

The length of the recovery after liposuction depends on the area treated or if multiple areas are treated during a single operation. In most cases, you should plan to take 3 to 5 days off from work or school. Larger treatment areas may require more time off.

We provide a compression garment to patients, which must be worn during the day and night for about 4 weeks after the surgery. A compression garment minimizes swelling and helps ensure the new contours heal as expected. You should wait 3 days before showering and then gently wash and pat incisions dry. Immediately replace your compression garment.

Avoid driving until Dr. Vartany says it’s okay.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I combine liposuction with other procedures?

Liposuction is often combined with other body contouring and breast enhancement procedures as part of a Mommy Makeover. Some of the procedures combined with liposuction include:

You can discuss your options with Dr. Vartany during the consultation.

Can liposuction treat cellulite?

Liposuction is not a treatment for cellulite. Even though fat is part of the reason people develop cellulite, treating the dimpled appearance of the condition involves severing connective tissue that pulls fatty tissue up into the underside of the skin.

Can I regain weight after liposuction?

Even though the fat removed during a liposuction procedure is gone for good, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle to ensure that the remaining fat cells don’t increase in size. Exercise and healthy eating habits will help your results last for years.

Dr. Vartany is just amazing! He has performed my breast lift and breast augmentation and I absolutely love it!! He is so kind, patient, and very detail orientated. He answered all my questions and was very realistic about what the outcome was going to be like. He doesn't sell you a story, he explains how each body type is different and even if you do the same surgery the results can be different from person to person. His entire staff is wonderful as well. Front desk was welcoming and friendly, and the surgery nurses very caring and thoughtful. Surgery went so smooth, it felt like I just went to sleep and woke up. No extra commotion. They called me the next day to see how I was doing and at my post-op everyone was just very attentive. Overall, it was a great experience!!! I recommend that Dr. Vartany to anyone who wants a beautiful natural look.

Get laser hair removal by time block instead of by area. Get more areas covered for your money. Laser facial is awesome, got rid of my preggo spots and dark freckles!

One of the best doctors around. I had three procedures on my nose and my eyes.For years I was skeptical to go under knife as I am a 56 years old male with some underling heart problems. The surgery was practically painless and to my wonder recovery was super fast. On cosmetic side, he did exactly what I asked for, no more, no less. The entire staff are super polite and professional.
