Sometimes a healthy diet and exercise plan aren’t enough to get rid of the last bit of stubborn fat. However, there is a solution. Dr. Diwan at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center can help you achieve your body shape goals with liposuction.
Is Liposuction Right for You?
Do you have isolated pockets of fat that won’t go away regardless of your exercise and diet routine? If the answer is yes, liposuction may be the ideal solution.
Good candidates for a liposuction procedure meet the following criteria.
- In good health and above the age of 18 years
- Have stubborn areas of fat / bulges that make you self-conscious in clothes
- At or close to ideal body weight
- Realistic expectations – doesn’t make someone thin or lose weight, makes more proportionate
- Committed to maintaining a healthy weight via diet and exercise
Our patients typically only require one treatment. CoolSculpting® and Ultrashape procedures often require multiple visits. Patients are awake during the procedure which shortens the recovery time. Most of our patients return to work within three days.
Liposuction is not recommended for individuals with cardiac risk factors. It is also not a solution to replace diabetic medications or to help control Diabetes.
We Offer Tumescent Liposuction
Dr. Diwan utilizes the highly successful tumescent technique for liposuction. This technique improves the shape of the body by removing stubborn fat in areas such as a double chin, the stomach, hips, buttocks, thighs, and knees. The tumescent liposuction procedure allows for safe and painless removal of fat in the office with local anesthesia.
Tumescent liposuction allows for a quicker recovery period than other forms of liposuction and cosmetic fat reduction. Most patients have minimal bruising. After the swelling subsides, typically within a few weeks, you will notice a healthy body shape and contours. With diet and exercise, our patients can maintain their new body shapes for years.
