Liposuction is not a substitute for overall weight loss, nor is it an effective treatment for cellulite, a condition that gives the skin an uneven, dimpled appearance. There are proven alternative treatments for this such as Endermologie Mesotherapy.
Liposuction (Body Contouring)
in Los Angeles & Beverly Hills, CA
Liposuction is well suited for men and women who are of relatively normal weight buy have isolated pockets of fat that cause certain areas of their body to appear disproportionate. These localized fat deposits may sometimes be an inherited trait and typically do not respond to dieting or exercise. Liposuction is often the only reliable way to change the body’s contour. Although it is possible to undergo liposuction at almost any age, the best results are achieved when skin still has enough elasticity to achieve a smooth contour following fat removal. Several areas of the body can undergo liposuction at once and occasionally be combined with other procedures.
When skin is inelastic, it may not re-drape well and a skin tightening procedure may be necessary. When this situation occurs in the abdomen, Dr. Stanton performs a proprietary surgical procedure called “Short Scar Lipo-Abdominoplasty” that combines liposuction with direct skin tightening and minimal scarring.
