Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes deposits of excess fat from specific areas of the body, face, or neck. Liposuction is best suited for women and men who are in relatively good shape, but have localized areas of excess fat deposition that won’t respond to dieting or exercise.
You may be a good candidate for liposuction if you desire fat removal or contouring in any of the following areas:
- Face and neck
- Breast and chest area
- Abdomen and waist
- Hips, thighs and buttocks
In liposuction treatment, Dr. Mazaheri uses VASER® technology, with ultrasound energy to “melt” the fat prior to suctioning. This less traumatic technique minimizes bruising, swelling, pain, and down time for patients.
While often used in combination with abdominoplasty, please note that liposuction cannot serve as a substitute for dieting and exercise, nor for the treatment of cellulite. If you are considering liposuction and plan to become pregnant or to lose a significant amount of weight, you should discuss these plans with Dr. Mazaheri.
