If you desire immediate, precise and significant fat reduction, liposuction in Irvine, California is an ideal body contouring tool to consider. Liposuction is a less invasive form of surgery that provides dramatic body contouring improvements by reducing unwanted fat on any area of your body, including:
Belly (muffin top, love handles, spare tire)
Outer thighs (saddlebags)

We will first inject your targeted area with a tumescent solution to loosen up fat. We will then gently insert a small cannula, or tube, under your skin, through which unwanted fat will be gently suctioned out.
You will need to rest at home for at least a few days following your treatment, taking special care to avoid heaving lifting or strenuous exercise. You will also need to wear a special compression garment to reduce swelling and support your new body contours as they heal. Your downtime will depend on the extent of your procedure. We will help you plan for specifics during your personal consultation so you know exactly what to expect and can fully support your recovery.
This trusted outpatient procedure is efficient and well-tolerated. The most common side effects of lipo are swelling, bruising and bleeding. These side effects are normal and will gradually start to improve in the days and weeks following your procedure. Keep in mind that it can take months for swelling to fully subside.
You will enjoy your liposuction results once your swelling has fully subsided and your body is healed, which can take up to a month for many. Be patient and be sure to rest, which will help speed healing and curb side effects.
Liposuction, or lipo, is typically performed in our fully equipped surgical suite in the comfort and convenience of our office.
