Liposuction – Beverly Hills | Los Angeles

Tired of the budge around your abdomen? Are you ashamed of your fat thighs? Some pockets of body fat can be very difficult to get rid of. But there is a solution to this problem. You can undergo a simple surgical procedure called liposuction.

Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, is a procedure performed by a cosmetic surgeon, where excess fat is removed from certain areas of the body. The intent is to reshape the area and make it slimmer. After you undergo this procedure, your self image will be enhanced and you will feel better about yourself.

If you have stubbon pockets of fat around your waist, abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, neck, back, arms, chest, chin or cheeks,  you can undergo a liposuction to remove them. A plastic surgeon can also perform a liposuction in conjunction with other cosmetic surgery procedures such as breast reduction, tummy tuck or a facelift.

If you are working out hard in the gym and eating right but you still have not been able to lose weight in certain areas of your body , then you can consider lipoplasty.

Dr. Eugene Kim is a noted plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. Dr. Kim will not advice you a lipocution unless you have been given a total health evaluation and your body type has been determined. If the tests come out fine, Dr. Kim will sit you down and discuss the aesthetic look that you are seeking.

Options that Dr. Kim offers in liposuction

Dr. Eugene is proud to say that he offers two types of liposuction techniques- tumescent liposuction and Vaser Lipo. Here is more information on each.

Tumescent liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is also called traditional liposuction. It is the most common liposuction procedure in the U.S. The cosmetic surgeon will begin by administering anaesthesia (intravenous sedation or local anaesthesia). Later, he will inject saline liquid into the area which is to undergo liposuction.

The solution contains medication which will minimize the pain and the bleeding. Then he will make a small insicison on the skin and reach into the layer of fat. Next, he will insert a thin hollow tube (connected to a vacuum) into the incision. The tube is moved around in the layer of fat to break it and suck it up through the vacuum.

Vaser Lipo

Vaso Lipo is an ultrasound assisted liposuction procedure. In this procedure, Dr. Kim will use a special vibrating cannula to liquefy fat cells. The vibrating cannula produces ultrasound energy.

As it passes through the fat deposit, the cells are liquified by the energy. The fat is then removed through suction. Vaser Lipo is a tissue selective procedure; only fat cells are targeted and other tissues are protected from any sort of damage. This is a powerful technique and it can remove substantial amounts of fat. Yet it is gentle enough to work on sentitive areas like the arms and neck.

Vaser Lipo can even treat areas of your body where you have already undergone liposuction. If you are looking for a liposucton procedure that has a fast recovery time, then Vaser Lipo is for you.
