Liposuction is an ideal operation for those excess fat deposits that you cannot eliminate with diet and exercise. Some of us are cursed with a genetic program for our shape. It is the same shape that we might see in our parents, whether it be large saddlebags or shapeless legs or a double chin. Liposuction is an ideal way to re-sculpt the body in a well-proportioned manner. It is important to be close or at your ideal weight at the time of this surgery. Weight loss after liposuction is inconsequential. However, excessive weight gain in the range of 10-15 pounds can diminish the results. Therefore, it is important to maintain a healthy weight before and after surgery. This is the ideal method of addressing your problem areas.
There are several techniques of liposuction depending on the area of the body being addressed and the quality of fat. The most common include suction assisted lipectomy (SAL), Power assisted lipectomy, Ultrasound assisted lipectomy, among others. Your physician can decide the ideal technique based on your body type and needs.
“Dr Bayati and Staff Were Great. The Staff Is Very Knowledgeable and Professional. After My Liposuction Surgery, I Was Finally Able to Wear a Red and White Polka-Dot Bikini for the First Time when My Husband and I Went on Vacation.”

In order to assist with shrinking of the skin in the areas of liposuction after surgery, you will wear a compression garment for 6-8 weeks after this procedure. The garment is discreet and fits perfectly under clothing without being noticeable.
Most people can return to work in a few days for small volumes and in a week for larger volumes of liposuction. You should avoid exercise for 3-4 weeks after this surgery, but walking is allowed within a week. This is a very satisfying operation with immediately noticeable results in areas with which you have been struggling for years.
