Liposuction or Lipoplasty is sometimes referred to as lipo by patients. At LVBS it is a procedure used to remove areas of fat that are hard to lose with diet & exercise alone, helping you achieve sculpted contouring.
Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic procedures used to remove fat from the abdomen, buttocks, neck, chin, upper arms, calves, and back.
Liposuction is a contouring surgical procedure that removes excess fat from trouble spot areas on the body.
At Las Vegas Body Sculpting, medication is administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include local and general anesthesia. Dr. Ahmed will discuss these options with you and recommend the best choice for you.
Very small incisions are made of the Liposuction procedure. For the procedure, Dr. Ahmed will dilute local anesthesia that he will infuse into the area. This will reduce bleeding and trauma. A thin hollow tube, that is called a cannula, is then inserted through the small incisions to loosen the excess body fat. The loosened fat is then suctioned out of the body. Once the swelling and fluid retention subsides the results of your body sculpting will be revealed. Swelling may last for a few weeks but can last for a few months. Your results will get better with time.
If you are within 20 pounds of your goal weight but you have not been able to successfully get rid of fatty areas with diet and exercise, you are a great candidate for Liposuction. Las Vegas Body Sculpting will meet with you to discuss the areas you would like to have treated. Your treatment plan will be customized to your specific desired results.
During your recovery, Las Vegas Body Sculpting will have you wear a compression garment or elastic bandages to cover the treated areas once your procedure is completed. These help to control swelling and compress the skin to your new body contours.
Depending on your procedure you may have small drains placed beneath the skin, to remove any excess blood or fluid. You will receive specific instructions after surgery that may include:
It may take several months for the swelling to fully dissipate. As it does, your new contours and enhanced self-image will continue to develop. LV Body Sculpting encourages healthy diet and exercise be maintained to ensure optimal results.
