Is Liposuction an Easy Way to Lose Weight?

Here in Newport Beach, Dr. Sajjadian gets this question a lot.  While we wish it was an easy method of weight loss, liposuction is not a substitute for dieting and exercise.  It is designed to remove stubborn areas of fat deep below the skin that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Liposuction can produce excellent results for people who have fatty areas that make certain body areas appear disproportionately large. Liposuction improves body contour by flattening your abdomen or eliminate a double chin.  Here in Newport Beach, Dr. Sajjadian has seen the results of liposuction have a hugely positive effect on our clients’ self-confidence and comfort with their appearance.

Sometimes individuals who diet, exercise, and eat right sometimes just can’t lose fat in certain areas, no matter how hard they try. Stubborn areas of fat often include the waist, thighs and chins. Liposuction removes the stubborn fat in these areas and attempts to re-contour one or more areas of the body. Through a tiny incision, liposuction uses a narrow tube or cannula to vacuum out the fat layer that lies deep beneath the skin. The cannula is moved through the fat layers to break up the fat cells and suction them out.

In order to get the best and longest lasting results from liposuction, we encourage our Newport Beach liposuction clients to commit to a healthy lifestyle, balanced with good nutrition and physical activity.  Liposuction unfortunately is not a treatment for obesity or a way to lose weight quickly and it won’t prevent weight from piling on again.
