Liposuction

Liposuction

When exercise and diet fail to give you the body contouring results you desire, it’s time to pursue another option: liposuction. After all, in Southern California, there is a lot of pressure to maintain a beach-body year-round, which is why many people elect to complement their diet and exercise regimes with surgical body contouring – or, liposuction.

Liposuction is designed to remove stubborn fatty tissue from areas of the body, such as the neck, thighs, stomach, love handles, lower back, bra rolls buttocks, and arms.

If you are currently ready to schedule a liposuction consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon, then contact the office of Dr. Sajjadian today by calling our Newport Beach office at 949-515-0550.

Planning Your Liposuction Procedure

Are you planning a liposuction procedure? To ensure beautiful liposuction results, it’s crucial to not only choose a plastic surgeon who has years of experience, but also a track record of successful outcomes. Dr. Sajjadian is technically astute, as well as, a master of artistry. He understands the intricate contours of the body, and uses liposuction to carefully sculpt out beautiful curves for a stunning result. 

To begin the process, all patients pursuing liposuction meet with Dr. Sajjadian at his Newport Beach office for an informative consultation. During this consult, Dr. Sajjadian reviews the procedure in detail, explaining the different techniques and technologies that he can incorporate. Then, he will evaluate you as a candidate for surgery – this step involves a physical examination, where he will note factors, such as the amount of excess fat you have, and the quality of your skin. Ideally, your skin should have a good degree of elasticity, which will allow it to tightly hug your new curves. 

Dr. Sajjadian will ask you what you hope to achieve with liposuction. Based on the information you provide him with, he will put together a customized surgical plan. Your plan may include treating a single problem area of the body, or may address multiple areas. Dr. Sajjadian respects the fact that different people have different wants and need when it comes to liposuction. He prides himself on helping patients achieve their goals. 

Once you’ve scheduled your surgery, Dr. Sajjadian will meet with you again. During this meeting, he will give you detailed pre-operative instructions, such as the need to avoid smoking and certain medications, getting a lot of sleep, and incorporating a nutritious diet into your meal plan. Following these instructions can minimize your risk of complications, as well as, cut down on the length of your recovery time.

Liposuction Procedural Details

Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis, at our local Newport Beach surgery center, and anesthesia will be administered for your comfort. The length of the procedure will depend on how many areas of the body are being treated, and the extent of the correction. 

To begin liposuction treatment, Dr. Sajjadian makes several small incisions in the treatment area. Through the incisions, he inserts a small hollow tube called a cannula, moving it back and forth to break up the fat. Then, he uses gentle suction to remove the fat from the body. Only after Dr. Sajjadian is satisfied with his work, will he close the incision with sutures, and then bandage the area. He may also place a special compression garment to help the body’s tissues as they heal. These incisions generally heal rather well. 

As one of the leading and top liposuction Newport Beach surgeons, Dr. Sajjadian offers three different liposuction methods to meet his various patients’ individual needs. These liposuction methods are:

  • Tumescent
  • Power-assisted
  • Ultrasonic liposuction

Different Types of Liposuction

As stated above, Dr. Sajjadian offers three different types of liposuction in Newport Beach.

One option of liposuction to consider is Tumescent liposuction. This method of liposuction involves injecting a tumescent solution into the body to help remove the fatty tissue. As the fluid is infused into the body, the tissues swell, allowing easier fat removal. When performing tumescent liposuction, Dr. Sajjadian can make tiny incisions, and use a micro-cannula for more precise body sculpting results. The tumescent method lends itself to a shorter recovery period, as well as, minimal pain and scarring.

Dr. Sajjadian also offers Power-assisted liposuction. This method of liposuction helps make fat removal easier, and involves the injecting of a “wetting” solution to firm up fat, and then uses a vibrating cannula to break up the fat deposits. Then, the tissues are suctioned out of the body through small incisions. Power-assisted liposuction allows for decreased swelling and bruising, and a shorter recovery period.

Finally, Dr. Sajjadian offers Ultrasonic liposuction. Ultrasonic liposuction is similar to power-assisted liposuction, in that it also involves the use of a special cannula. However, the cannula used for ultrasonic liposuction emits sound waves that break up the fatty tissue. Some forms of ultrasonic liposuction, such as Vaser, preserve blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue, to minimize bruising and swelling.

Testimonial

“I have worked out all my life, and after 2 children, I couldn’t work off the fat despite consistent exercise. I had never had a surgery like this before. When I came to Dr. Sajjadian, he instantly made me feel comfortable. Almost 4 months later I feel happier and I see the results, with minimal scarring. My stomach looks like it did before I was pregnant.”

“Dr. Sajjadian takes the time to make sure you understand what he’s doing and why. He’s a conservative doctor who doesn’t like to rush thing, because he wants the best results for you as possible. He’s kind, caring, and thorough. I would recommend Dr. Sajjadian to anyone who is interested in considering getting a tummy tuck.”

“I trusted Dr. Sajjadian as I was able to see some of his cases beforehand, and the results were amazing. The Dr. made me very comfortable with what I wanted done. When it came to the surgery, I had very little bruising and swelling, and within 3/4 days I felt great. I have been back to the office since and would use Dr. Sajjadian again if I need any more work done.”

Recovering from Liposuction

One of the most appealing aspects of the liposuction process, is the fact that you’ll be released from the surgery center shortly after the procedure is complete. That’s right, you’ll get to recover in the comfort of your own home. It’s important to note that while the treated area may be sore, swollen, bruised, and/or tender after surgery, these side effects are only temporary.

During the initial recovery period, you should get plenty of rest, and avoid any strenuous movement and activities. Specifically, gentle walking is permitted to promote good circulation.

Further, Dr. Sajjadian will check in with you at several points during this recovery period, in order to monitor your healing progress, and advise you when it’s safe to return to work, exercise regimes, and other normal activities.

Although every patient recovers at a different pace, many people are able to return to work and their daily routine within two weeks – sometimes, even earlier. It’s important to recover at your own pace, and not push your body if you don’t feel ready.

Liposuction Cost and Financing

Liposuction costs vary, often depending on the number of treatment areas, as well as, other factors.

A simple surgical technique, liposuction helps to improve the body’s contour by removing excess fat deposits, which are located between the skin and muscle.

A good candidate for liposuction will have realistic expectations prior to his or her surgery. While Dr. Sajjadian is an experienced professional, the patient in questions has to do their part, too.

Generally speaking, the most common body areas treated by liposuction are the abdomen, breasts, hips, thighs, buttocks, love handles, and cheeks.
