Liposuction

Liposuction in Beverly Hills with Dr. Maher Anous

For some patients, localized fat pads are difficult, if not impossible, to minimize with a proper diet and workout routine. This is because certain fat pockets are genetically inherited and cannot be influenced by external factors (Fig.1). Because this problem is common for many women and men, our plastic surgeon, Dr. Maher Anous, provides body sculpting solutions (Fig. 2), including liposuction in Beverly Hills. When fat deposits alter your body shape, liposuction is an effective surgical fat removal technique (Fig. 3) that smoothens and minimizes uncomfortable bulges.

Your Liposuction Consultation at Anous Plastic Surgery

During your initial appointment, Dr. Anous discusses your goals and expectations, as well as your medical history. If necessary, he can recommend procedures in conjunction with liposuction to ensure you love your results, such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck, or a body lift. It’s important to note that liposuction is specifically for the removal for excess fat, while drooping skin will need to be addressed with an additional procedure.

Patients receive complete information during their consultation, such as what they can expect before, during, and after their procedure. We provide a guide on the recovery process, so you can feel completely comfortable about your choice of the treatment plan.

During a thorough evaluation of your body and after understanding your concerns, Dr. Anous can determine which liposuction technique is best to provide the contouring results you desire and help you attain your new figure.

Are You a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Patients should note that liposuction is neither a treatment for obesity nor is it designed to create significant weight loss; however, surgical fat removal is ideal for improving contours when patients are close to or at their target body weight; suitable candidates are within 30% of this range. If you’re prone to storing fat around your abdomen, thighs, or upper arms, for example, liposuction is the perfect way to sculpt your body and prevent these bulges from reappearing.

To achieve the best possible results, patients should have healthy skin elasticity so that the soft tissue can conform to the new proportions. If you are interested in skin tightening and fat removal, Dr. Anous can recommend a customized treatment plan to meet your needs. Qualified patients for liposuction are also in good general health and committed to following all instructions set by Dr. Anous.

What to Expect with Liposuction in Beverly Hills

Liposuction reduces fat deposits to improve body proportions. This surgical procedure is effective in reducing love handles, a double chin, saddlebags, a protruding abdomen, and other fat bulges to create the beautiful body shape you’ve always wanted. Common treatment areas include:

  • Calves and ankles
  • Knees and thighs
  • Buttocks and hips
  • Waist and abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Neck and chin

There are a different size and style liposuction cannulas available. This allows Dr. Anous to sculpt defined body contours carefully. During your consultation, Dr. Anous will determine which type of liposuction is best suited to your expectations.

Tumescent Liposuction

With this technique, Dr. Anous first creates subtle incisions at the treatment site. Next, he delivers a sterile solution of saline mixed with an anesthetic and a special compound to the underlying tissue. This solution will break down fat, reduce swelling, and minimize bleeding while providing comfort during and after the procedure. Then, he inserts a small cannula, which gently removes the loosened fat with suction. He closes the incisions and applies a compression garment to support sutures and incision wounds. After an observation period, you will be allowed to go home with a family member or friend.

Recovering from Fat Removal Surgery

After liposuction, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the treatment site, which resolve during the healing process. Dr. Anous will prescribe pain medication to manage any discomfort after surgery. He will also provide post-care instructions to follow for optimal healing and successful recovery.

Rest and sleep are the best way to start your recovery with some light walking to stimulate circulation. You should not engage in any strenuous movements, lifting, or bending. Post-surgery appointments will allow our team to monitor you and provide with additional instructions when needed. Healing is unique with each patient, so it’s important to listen to your body and Dr. Anous before returning to normal activities.

Liposuction FAQs

After the procedure, your new shape will be permanent. If you gain weight after your procedure, you can still expect to be comparatively slimmer in the treated areas. New fat cells aren’t created, but existing fat cells can expand; it’s essential to lead a healthy lifestyle after liposuction, so you can enjoy the body contours you achieved after your treatment.

Although complications are rare, they do exist. To ensure minimal risk, only consider board-certified plastic surgeons. Dr. Anous is a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive knowledge in the body’s anatomy, as well as many years of experience with plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Two days after liposuction, there will be some soreness which peaks between the second and fourth day. There may be discomfort for about a month which is easily managed with pain medication but will subside afterward.

Scarring is minimal because the modern cannula (microcannula) requires tiny incisions which leave tiny, subtle scars.
