Many people do not have a problem of excess weight or obesity, but they suffer from stubborn fat deposits in specific areas of the body. This can spoil their overall appearance and create a disproportionate body. Liposuction is the most effective plastic surgery procedure to correct this condition. Dr. H.M. Seify is a board certified plastic surgeon in Newport, who has the expertise to perform liposuction in a safe and conservative manner. Many patients in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Orange County, CA and surrounding communities receive cosmetic treatments under Dr. Seify’s personalized care and attention.
What is Liposuction?
As one of the leading Newport Beach cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Seify provides liposuction treatment at his state of the art facility. During your initial consultation, he will explain the liposuction procedure and evaluate if it is an appropriate treatment in your case. Liposuction is essentially a cosmetic surgery that helps remove specific pockets of fat from areas such as the hips, tummy, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, knees, neck, and chin.
The goal is to sculpt the body to make it more proportionate and appealing overall. Dr. Seify will explain to his patients in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Orange County and other areas in CA that the long-term success of liposuction is possible only if the patient maintains an active and healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet. The goal of liposuction is to reduce fats in areas that fail to respond to diet and exercise.
Any adult who does not have any rare health complications and is unable to reduce fats in specific areas of the body may be an ideal candidate for liposuction. Such candidate should also fulfill the following conditions for liposuction surgery:
- Keep realistic expectations from the procedure, and be aware that it is not a weight loss treatment
- Should not be excessively overweight or obese
- Should have some skin elasticity and firmness
- Have concentrated fat deposits that do not respond to exercise and diet
- Should not have cellulite
While age is not a factor for liposuction, but older adults usually have loss of skin elasticity, which prevents them from benefiting from this procedure.
As an eminent plastic surgeon in Newport, Dr. Seify prefer to adopt a flexible approach to anesthesia, and customizes it according to the needs of the patient. He may choose local anesthesia, if the amount of fat to be reduced is very limited and the number of areas is small. However, if the procedure is going to be extensive with removal of large fat deposits, or must be combined with another surgery, general anesthesia may be a better option.
The duration of the surgery will vary depending on the amount of fat to be removed and the size of the targeted area. The most common liposuction technique involves making a tiny incision to insert a narrow tube or cannula into the fat deposit area. The cannula is used to vacuum the fat tissue that lies underneath the skin. The fat cells are disintegrated and suctioned out with the help of a syringe or a vacuum pump. IV fluids are given to the patient immediately after the procedure to replenish the fluid lost along with the fat.
Dr. Seify is one of the most experienced cosmetic surgeons in Newport for liposuction. He uses several liposuction techniques at his facility, and recommends the most appropriate technique depending on a particular patient’s needs. This is a key advantage because it allows him to avoid ‘one size fits all’ kind of approach for his patients. Such expertise makes him a highly sought after plastic surgeon in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Orange County and other nearby areas in CA.
This technique involves injecting fluid to the extent of nearly three times the amount of fat to be removed into the targeted area. The technique can be performed under local anesthesia, making it safer and more popular than other techniques.
In contrast to tumescent liposuction, this technique involves reduced use of fluids. The fluid injected in this case is equivalent to the volume of fat to be removed. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia, but takes lesser time compared to tumescent liposuction.
In this case, a special cannula is used that can produce ultrasound energy. The cannula is passed through fat deposits to allow ultrasound to break the fat cells and liquefy the fat. The liquefied fat is then removed with the help of a suction pump.
