Liposuction Beverly Hills
While we’ve all heard the term liposuction, many of us actually misunderstand its primary purpose. While some surgeons may say otherwise, liposuction is not a method of weight loss. It is a delicate and precise body contouring procedure. When performed well, liposuction has a remarkable ability to deliver improved proportion and a slimmer silhouette. Rather than performing liposuction on a single trouble spot, Dr. Fisher addresses the body as a whole, allowing him to ensure consistent, natural and beautiful results.
Making the Right Decision
Stubborn fat deposits that will not respond to diet and exercise are often hereditary. For these patients, liposuction is the only treatment that will permanently eliminate unsightly bulges on the thighs, hips, waistline or abdomen. Other areas where fat deposits are resistant to reduction efforts are the calves, insides of the knees, upper arms and under the chin.
Liposuction is not simply the process of eliminating fat—a vital skill in performing liposuction is knowing when to stop. Sculpting the body through eliminating just the right amount of excess fat requires artistic perception as well as surgical experience. Obtaining the best liposuction Beverly Hills can provide depends on choosing a plastic surgeon with both surgical skill and aesthetic taste.
Dr. Fisher helps his patients decide on cosmetic surgery through a process of education combined with his assessment of the best way to accomplish the patient’s goals. He does not base his decision to accept a patient on ability to pay, but on whether the procedure is in the best interests of the patient.
Dr. Fisher’s decades of experience allows him to provide his patients with an overview of the process, beginning with an in-depth consultation covering the patient’s concerns and goals, continuing with an anatomical assessment and concluding with his recommendations.
His recommendations address the entire body, not simply focusing on one part but visualizing how the procedure will affect proportion and balance. As one of America’s leading plastic surgeons, he has earned a reputation of being among the best liposuction surgeons in Beverly Hills due to his aesthetic and surgical excellence.
During the consultation process, Dr. Fisher encourages his patients to ask questions and share their innermost wishes so that he can relate what liposuction can accomplish in relation to those wishes. As well, he won’t proceed with any procedure that he doesn’t truly feel is in the best interest of his patient.
One of the most preferred methods of liposuction is called the tumescent method. Tumescent means ‘swollen’ and refers to the process of flooding the area with a special solution before beginning the liposuction procedure. This solution, called tumescent anesthesia, serves to shrink the blood vessels, resulting in virtually zero blood loss. Additionally, this solution provides the numbing effects of local anesthesia, often eliminating the need for general anesthesia during surgery.
Liposuction is performed by inserting a small hollow device, or cannula, through tiny incisions precisely positioned to allow access to fatty deposits. The fat is broken as the cannula is moved through the fat and then suctioned out. The incisions are very small and scarring is virtually unnoticeable after healing.
Candidates should be in good overall health and should be at or near their ideal weight. They should be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and regular exercise.
Liposuction permanently removes fat from the treated area, and in cases of substantial weight gain, the fat will accumulate in other areas. Liposuction is not a weight loss method, but rather a procedure to finalize weight loss efforts. It is used to remove fat that has not responded to diet and exercise.
Candidates should have good skin tone and elasticity to ensure a smooth result. To avoid complications during healing, candidates should be non-smokers. Good muscle tone and skin elasticity is essential for the re-attachment process. If skin elasticity is poor, removing fat will create an unsatisfactory aesthetic result. Even the best liposuction surgeon in the world can’t create skin elasticity where none exists.
