As a liposuction specialist, Dr. Ghaderi is skilled in assisting patients with removing or reducing unwanted fat deposits. He understands that some patients may not be able to adequately reduce certain trouble areas, even though they have a healthy diet and a regular exercise program. In the paragraphs below, he explains this popular procedure. To view the results of some of Dr. Ghaderi’s liposuction patients, visit his photo gallery.
Patients seeking a better-proportioned and smoother body contour may benefit from undergoing liposuction. Liposuction surgery, or lipoplasty, is a procedure that helps to sculpt specific problem areas by removing unwanted fat. Common treatment areas include the hips, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, chin, upper arms, and neck.
Good Candidates for Liposuction
The best candidates for liposuction surgery are patients with a healthy, stable weight and firm skin who have pockets of surplus fat in areas that are difficult to control with diet and exercise. If you are considering liposuction, you should be physically and psychologically healthy, as well as realistic in your expectations for the outcome. Age is not a major consideration, but patients with better skin elasticity are likely to achieve the smoothest contour once fat has been removed.
What Do I Need to Know About the Safety of Liposuction?
Each year, thousands of people undergo liposuction surgery and experience no major complications. However, it is important for you to be informed of the risks as well as the benefits. By carefully following Dr. Ghaderi’s advice and instructions, both before and after surgery, you can do your part to minimize some of the risks of liposuction.
What Should I Know about My Results?
After undergoing liposuction surgery you may notice that clothes fit more comfortably and that you feel more confident about your appearance. For optimal results, you may want to combine liposuction with another procedure, such as breast augmentation or tummy tuck surgery.
