Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures worldwide, and tens of thousands of Americans undergo liposuction each year. With the rapid proliferation of liposuction has come the unfortunate consequence of poorly regulated liposuction, sometimes with unfavorable results.
Most doctors who perform liposuction are NOT board-certified plastic surgeons, so it is important to thoroughly research your doctor in advance of seeking treatment.
While many inexperienced practitioners regard liposuction as an "easy" surgery, getting beautiful, durable results with nice, smooth contours is actually quite challenging. When I am performing liposuction, I make special efforts to ensure that I suction fat in an even, deep plane. I use cross-hatching techniques at a sufficient tissue depth. I use multiple access sites and cannula sizes. And I use tumescent technique.
What this means is that I am able to give patients a smooth, natural reduction in fat that looks even and beautiful from all angles.
I also perform correction of previous liposuction that was not done to a patient's standards. If you are unhappy with previous liposuction done by another surgeon, your options include repeat liposuction, autologous fat grafting, or both. Sometimes repeat procedures are needed to get perfect results.
