LIPOSUCTION IS AN AESTHETIC PROCEDURE THAT ELIMINATES DEPOSITS LOCATED IN SPECIFIC AREAS THAT RESIST EXERCISE, VIA A MECHANICAL SUCTION DEVICE.

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.

SURGICAL PROCESS

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.

POST-OPERATIVE MONITORING

For two to three days after the operation, most people experience some discomfort in the sculpted areas. Compression garments are worn for 3 weeks.

Bruising may occur with post-operative edema (swelling) making it difficult to evaluate the results immediately. Physical activity and a suitable diet are advised.

Dr. Zadeh can recommend various non-surgical treatments to firm up the skin after liposuction.
