Glendale Liposuction

How does Glendale liposuction work?

Glendale Liposuction is an effective technique that is used to remove fat excess.

Fat removal in Glendale is done using a small metal cannula (tube). The cannula is inserted through small (3-4mm) incisions. The cannula is connected to a suction machine. The smooth tip of the cannula has openings through which fat particles are removed. Depending on the area treated, Glendale liposuction can be done using local or general anesthesia.

What areas can be treated with liposuction in Glendale?

Glendale Liposuction can be used to treat discrete areas of fat excess. Those areas include

  • face and neck
  • back
  • chest
  • abdomen and flank
  • arms
  • thighs
  • buttocks

What should I expect during my consultation?
During your consultation we will examine the areas that concern you, evaluating the amount of fat excess and skin quality. Based on this evaluation, we will discuss whether or not you will benefit from Glendale liposuction and the anticipated outcomes. We will then mark the areas to be treated and show you the location of the small incisions on your photographs.

You will be given specific instructions on how to prepare yourself before the Glendale liposuction and what to do after the procedure.

Are the results permanent following Glendale liposuction?

Glendale Liposuction permanently removes fat cells. The results are likely to be permanent unless you start gaining weight. In that case, the remaining fat cells will enlarge in size (hypertrophy). Most patients are happy with their results following liposuction. Few patients desire a touch-up procedure to further improve the results.

What is recovery like following Glendale liposuction?

Patients usually go home the same day following liposuction. We use sutures that are absorbable and do not need to be removed. Many patients return to work in 5-10 days. This again depends on which areas were treated.

Most swelling and bruising will subside within several weeks. You will be given a compression garment to wear for 3-4 weeks following liposuction. The compression garment facilitates tissue healing and resolution of swelling
