Liposuction, more commonly known as “lipo” or body contouring, is a procedure people consider when they have stubborn fat they cannot get rid of with diet and exercise. This procedure can be for both men and women. Women typical tend to accumulate fat in their hips, buttocks, and abdomen. For men, fat usually goes to their midsection or some even experience Gynecomastia or enlarged breasts.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is supposed to help with areas where you have difficulty getting rid of extra weight you can’t seem to lose. This procedure can be done in different areas such as your face, chin, arms, abs, upper and lower back, flanks, legs or thighs. Liposuction can help you achieve a more defined and toned look for your body. It could also be done in combination with other plastic surgery Los Angeles procedures to further achieve your aesthetic goals.
Most liposuction procedures are done by making a small incision in the desired area, using a cannula, a thin tube that is inserted through the incision. The cannula is used to break down fat, which is removed from the body with a vacuum or suction attached to the cannula. During the consultation Dr. Shamloo will assess and recommend what he thinks is best for your body.
