Contour Your Figure With Liposuction in Thousand Oaks

Attaining the slim, toned physique you crave is much easier said than done. Even with a dedicated exercise program and a healthy, nutritious diet, you can still find yourself stuck with pockets and bulges of excess body fat. At Elevate Plastic Surgery, we offer advanced liposuction surgery to help you shed that stubborn fat and put the finishing touches on your dream figure.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction, also known as lipo, is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat from specific areas of your body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, or neck. Many individuals also opt to undergo arm liposuction, which targets excess fat that has accumulated around the upper arms. Liposuction is not technically a weight-loss method but rather a way to reshape and contour your body by eliminating stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.

During the standard liposuction procedure, a small incision is made in the targeted area, and a thin tube called a cannula is inserted to suction out the excess fat.

Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery that offers all of the following benefits:

  • Eliminates stubborn excess fat
  • Enhances the contours and proportions of the body
  • Helps to create a slimmer, more toned physique
  • Increased wardrobe options
  • Long-lasting, natural-looking results
  • Improved mobility and athletic performance
  • Reduced risk of certain health problems
  • Improved self-confidence

What Is High-Def Liposuction?

At Elevate Plastic Surgery, we offer an advanced liposuction technique known as high-def liposuction. This procedure is designed to create more defined and toned contours than what can be achieved with traditional liposuction.

High-def liposuction uses a specialized technique to target specific areas of fat and create a more chiseled appearance. This method is often used to enhance the appearance of the abdominal muscles, but it can also be used on other areas of the body, such as the arms, thighs, and back.

During high-def liposuction, Dr. Rahgozar may use a combination of liposuction and fat-transfer techniques to remove excess fat and sculpt the body. This will include using a small cannula to remove fat from the targeted areas. The fat is then processed and purified before being injected back into the body in strategic locations to create a more defined appearance.

What to Expect During Your Liposuction Surgery

Before your liposuction surgery, you will have a consultation with Dr. Rahgozar to discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure. By learning about your aesthetic goals and examining the area where you’re looking to eliminate excess fat, Dr. Rahgozar will be able to curate a personalized treatment plan. This will include determining which liposuction method is the best fit for your situation.

On the day of the surgery, you will be given either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. Dr. Rahgozar will then make small incisions and perform the contouring procedure. Dr. Rahgozar will then close the incision(s) with sutures and apply bandages to the treatment area(s).

What Is the Recovery Like After Liposuction?

After liposuction, you’ll experience some mild swelling, bruising, or discomfort for several days or weeks. These symptoms should gradually subside on their own, but Dr. Rahgozar can also prescribe you pain medication if necessary. You will also be prescribed a compression garment, which you must wear for several weeks to promote proper healing and reduce swelling. 
For the first week of your recovery, it’s important to do the following:

  • Rest frequently
  • Take light walks
  • Stay hydrated
  • Maintain a nutritious diet
  • Avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activities

You should be able to go back to work and gradually resume your normal routine within a week of your liposuction procedure. However, you should wait at least three or four weeks to engage in strenuous exercise.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Lipo in Thousand Oaks?

Adults looking to get rid of stubborn fat deposits could be good candidates for liposuction in Thousand Oaks. The procedure is an effective option for pockets of excess fat that dieting and exercise have failed to eliminate. That said, candidates for the surgery should understand that liposuction is not meant to be a weight-loss procedure.

To be an ideal candidate for liposuction, you should also meet the following requirements:

  • Be in good physical health
  • Be relatively close to your ideal weight
  • Not be currently pregnant or nursing
  • Be a non-smoker or willing to temporarily quit
