What is liposuction?
It’s a procedure that removes fatty deposits located in an area resistant to exercise, using a mechanical suction device.
THE IDEAL CANDIDATE
The ideal candidate for liposuction surgery will be determined by Dr. Zadeh during the consultation. The candidate must have excess fat localized in one or more specific areas (e.g. saddlebags, belly, love handles, etc.)
The candidate must have healthy skin; in other words, it must have the necessary elasticity for the skin to retract properly after the decrease in fat volume. Liposuction doesn’t produce weight loss; it aims only to remove localized fat cells. Dr. Zadeh advises against liposuction in the case of morbid obesity.
During surgery, Dr. Zadeh will inject a medicated solution that will help reduce bruising and relieve post-operative discomfort. Dr. Zadeh will make tiny incisions varying between two and four millimeters. Using a back and forth motion, Dr. Zadeh sucks up fat cells with a cannula attached to a mechanical suction device.
Subsequently, the incisions will be closed with sutures and then covered with a bandage. The incisions are usually located in the natural folds of the skin, minimizing their visibility.
