Beautifully Sculpted Body Contouring

Beverly Hills Liposuction patientMany people have at least one area that looks out of proportion with the rest of their body. These problem areas can be stubborn and unresponsive to diet and exercise changes. Liposuction with Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. A.J. Khalil is a safe and effective way to eliminate unwanted body fat and create a slimmer and more sculpted physique. Liposuction can be performed on nearly any part of the body (and some areas of the face) to improve its shape. Common treatment areas include the waist, back, thighs, inner knees, hips, calves, ankles, chin, neck and male chest.

Liposuction Candidates

When considering candidacy, it is important to understand that liposuction is not a valid method of weight loss, nor is it a substitute for diet or exercise. Ideally, candidates should be at or close to their target weight, and have healthy diet and exercise habits already in place.

In addition to maintaining a stable weight, suitable liposuction candidates should:

  • be in good general health, free of any serious illness or medical condition
  • not smoke
  • have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone
  • set specific, reasonable goals of treatment

Dr. Khalil meets with all liposuction candidates to review their health history and medical record, and to discuss the patient’s desired expectations and long-term body contouring goals. At this time, he explains all of the available options and important considerations for liposuction. Together, the doctor and patient develop the most suitable approach to treatment.

Treatment Details

Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis. Anesthesia medications are administered prior to the start of surgery.

There are a few different ways that Dr. Khalil can perform liposuction surgery. During traditional liposuction, he makes a small incision and inserts a long, hollow tube (called a cannula) through the incision. The cannula is moved back and forth to loosen the excess body fat.

Other methods of liposuction involve the use of ultrasound energy or a mechanical cannula to help break up the unwanted fat. The tumescent technique involves injecting a special anesthetic solution into the treatment area to make the fatty tissue swell.

Once the fat has been broken up, it is gently removed from the body via suction. Dr. Khalil makes a final check to ensure the treated area looks proportional and symmetrical. Finally, the treated area is wrapped with special bandages and a compression garment is placed.

Liposuction Recovery and Results

Liposuction patients usually remain in the care of Dr. Khalil and the surgical staff for a few hours before being released to go home. Dr. Khalil provides comprehensive aftercare instructions to help patients navigate the recovery period.

The treated area may be bruised, swollen, tender or sore for one to two weeks. Most patients take a week or two off from work and refrain from strenuous exercise for at least two to four weeks as the tissues heal. Keeping the compression garment in place during recovery can help expedite healing. Once the swelling dissipates, the treated area should look noticeably slimmer and more sculpted.

Liposuction results are long-lasting. As long as the patient maintains his or her weight, they can enjoy their results for many years.
