While liposuction is a great procedure by itself
Newport Beach, CA (Vocus) June 30, 2010
Liposuction is one of the most popular Newport Beach plastic surgery procedures because it is the only way to spot reduce problem areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Newport Beach liposuction can remove stubborn fatty deposits in the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and even the neck and face. There is a technique that works for pretty much any part of the body.
It is not a weight loss method, though patients typically drop a few sizes because the end result is
a slimmer shape. The general recommendation is that patients be within 20 pounds of their goal
weight before pursuing liposuction.
“This is a truly fabulous procedure because of what it allows plastic surgeons to do for their
patients,” says Dr. Ambe. “We can sculpt, contour and slim the body using the variety of
liposuction techniques available today. It is really like being an artist working on a sculpture.”
Depending on the overall shape of a patient, it can also be used as an alternative to more invasive
surgical procedures. For example, a patient may feel that she needs a tummy tuck because of
some drooping fat around the abdomen. After evaluating her body, Dr. Ambe may suggest a
simpler liposuction of the area, especially if the skin has good elasticity and will bounce back.
“While liposuction is a great procedure by itself,” says Dr. Ambe. “It is also a wonderful tool for
getting the best results from other procedures. It is like the icing on the cake for tucks and lifts to
get the smoothest result possible.”
As a complement to other Newport Beach plastic surgery procedures, liposuction is a tool to contour the new body shape. For example, Dr. Ambe can create curves in the waist and further flatten the tummy following a tummy tuck. It can also be used to slim the lines of legs and arms
after lift procedures.
Newport Beach liposuction is also a frequent add-on to other procedures. For patients who are undergoing a tummy tuck, they may request a little liposuction in some another problem area of the body while they are under anesthesia. Because of advancements in anesthesia, these multiple procedure surgeries are safe and very common.
“There are so many things that can be accomplished with this one procedure,” says Dr.
Ambe. “And, because of advancements in technique, recovery is minimal compared to more
aggressive surgery. This makes it an attractive alternative and addition to other procedures. With
an artistic eye and skilled hand, the body can be significantly transformed through liposuction.”
