What's Involved in Liposuction?

The following are apart of liposuction:

Consultation and Planning:

The process begins with a consultation with Dr. Yaghoubian, during which your concerns and goals are discussed. Dr. Yaghoubian will assess your candidacy for liposuction, evaluate your medical history, and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.


After the procedure, you will be given instructions on how to care for the treated areas and manage any discomfort. You may experience swelling, bruising, and temporary numbness, which typically subside within a few weeks. It’s essential to follow Dr. Yaghoubian’s post-operative guidelines to ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results.


On the day of the procedure, you will receive anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Dr. Yaghoubian will then make small incisions in the treatment area and insert a thin tube called a cannula to suction out excess fat deposits. The procedure may involve various techniques such as traditional liposuction, laser-assisted liposuction, or ultrasound-assisted liposuction, depending on the individual case.


Over the following weeks and months, you will notice gradual improvements in your body contours as swelling resolves and the treated area settles. While results may vary, most patients experience a slimmer, more sculpted appearance in the treated areas. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet can help sustain your liposuction results in the long term.

Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction may be suitable for individuals who have localized areas of excess fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Good candidates are generally in good overall health, close to their ideal body weight, and have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure. It’s essential to consult with Dr. Yaghoubian to assess your candidacy for liposuction, as individual factors such as medical history, skin elasticity, and aesthetic goals play a significant role in determining suitability for the procedure

Liposuction FAQ:

Liposuction can be performed on various areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, arms, back, chest, and chin.

Liposuction is typically performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. The surgeon makes small incisions in the target area, inserts the cannula, and uses suction to remove excess fat.

The recovery process varies from patient to patient but generally involves some swelling, bruising, and discomfort for the first few days. Patients are advised to wear compression garments and avoid strenuous activities during the initial recovery period.

The fat cells removed during liposuction are permanently eliminated from the body. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise is essential to prevent the remaining fat cells from expanding.

Risks and complications of liposuction may include infection, bleeding, fluid accumulation, contour irregularities, numbness, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. These risks can be minimized by choosing a qualified and experienced surgeon.
