As the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the country, Liposuction can slim and reshape specific areas of the body by effectively removing localized or regional excess fat deposits including cells that store fat.
Though many individuals are in great health and maintain a reasonable level of fitness, they may still have a body with disproportionate contours because of excess, localized fat deposits that do not respond to diet or exercise. These deposits of deep compartmental fat, present in areas such as the upper arms, chest, abdomen, back, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles, may be a result of heredity or family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness.
Please understand that liposuction is not intended as a substitute for a weight-loss or exercise program, but a method of improving the contour and proportion of your body.
With that said, the best candidates of liposuction in Beverly Hills are as follows (as mentioned by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons):
Age is not a major consideration; however, older patients may have diminished skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as a younger patient with tighter skin.
Because a fit and well-proportioned body is often considered a symbol of health and attractiveness, many of Dr. Golshani's patients who have undergone Liposuction believe that this procedure significantly enhanced their self-image and confidence.
A consultation with Dr. Daniel Golshani to get a liposuction in Beverly Hills is the first step toward determining what technique is most appropriate for your specific case. The consultation will include a careful consideration of your specific concerns and the areas in which you desire improvement, an assessment of your skin tone and elasticity, as well as your fat density and distribution & may address any conditions listed above you may be experiencing.
What is the Cost of Liposuction?
The cost of liposuction will depend on various factors, namely the expertise of the surgeon performing the procedure & how many areas will need to be addressed. The average fee taken from statistics by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in 2014 was $2,971. But again, this price does not reflect inflation that has occurred since 2014, as well as the surgeon’s expertise, geographic location of office, how many areas that may need to be addressed, & other factors not listed here.
What are the complications & risks of Liposuction?
Liposuction is regarded as a very safe procedure. The are rare complications that may occur with any surgery, cosmetic or not and they are: infections, bleeding, skin ulcerations, and nerve injury. However, patients of Dr. Golshani’s will be closely followed up with to ensure that their procedure has gone beyond their expectations.
What should I expect after Liposuction (post-op)?
If the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, then patients may leave the facility within as little as 30 minutes from completion. If general anesthesia is used, then patients are required to remain in the facility for 1 – 3 hours before being discharged home. Most patients can return to a desk-type job with two days after tumescent liposuction. Because of the significant decrease in swelling, inflammation and pain after tumescent liposuction, patients are able to return to normal physical activities very soon after tumescent liposuction.
Is there any pain or discomfort with Liposuction?
During the two days immediately after liposuction, the amount of pain experienced depends on the type of anesthesia used for liposuction. Soreness is usually the most intense 2 - 4 days after liposuction and then decreases steadily. The tenderness and soreness typically is quite bothersome for up to 4 weeks, but gradually subsides over the following 4 - 8 weeks.
