What is Liposuction?

Despite how much you try to lose weight, you may still be bothered by pockets of fat that are keeping you from being confident in your body. Board-certified plastic surgeon and hand surgeon Dr. Omar Ahmed is proud to offer the latest treatments to safely remove fat from certain body parts. Lipo, or liposuction surgery, is a body contouring treatment that reduces pockets of fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks to create a trimmer appearance. This treatment at Omar Ahmed, M.D. can be blended to treat multiple body parts. When we see you for your consultation in Pasadena, CA, Dr. Ahmed will assess the areas of your body you wish to address so you can reach your cosmetic surgery goals. We will strive to help you feel and look the best you can be.

Ideal Candidates for Liposuction

Fat removal surgery is a good treatment for patients who are at an ideal weight but have pesky areas of fat that cannot be lost with even the most healthy lifestyle. Patients contemplating liposuction should have good skin laxity because liposuction does not address loose or sagging skin. It is also important to realize that liposuction is not a treatment for weight loss. Females undergoing liposuction should be finished with childbearing as this may compromise the results.

How is Liposuction Performed?

Surgical liposuction is performed in an outpatient setting with the patient under general anesthesia. A very small incision is placed in the skin so a cannula can be inserted. The cannula is a tube that helps loosen the fatty tissue that is being removed. After the fat deposits have been suctioned out, Dr. Ahmed will seal the incision. Based on the number of sections treated, your surgery may take 1 – 3 hours. In the separate recovery area, our post-op team will assist you in managing your pain and care for your treated areas until your discharge.

What to Expect After Liposuction

You may need to stay at home for recovery from liposuction surgery for 1 – 3 weeks, depending on the number of areas treated and the size of the treatment area. It's typical to have bruising and swelling for 1 – 2 weeks, and you should have the sutures removed 7 – 10 days after surgery. What is most important after having lipo surgery is to give your body time to rest and recover. To increase your strength, try short walks and light workouts as advised by Dr. Ahmed. Remember, you may see some changes after six weeks, but it will take 6 – 10 months until your new body contour is attained.
