Liposuction to remodel appearance in montreal, quebec
Permanent Results for Eliminating Excess Fat
Considered by some to be just a “procedure,” liposuction is real surgery. As such, it can be routinely performed in an extremely safe and supportive environment in which our plastic surgeons ensure that the medical care of each patient is at the forefront.
Often during liposuction, Dr Izadpanah plastic surgeon uses small incisions to remove excessive fat, helping achieve aesthetically pleasing contours. We can target most areas such as the breasts, arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, legs, neck, and chin. Our surgeons work with each patient to optimize both the immediate and long-term results of this procedure.
Liposuction: What to Expect
Before having liposuction, Dr Izadpanah talks with patients to help set realistic goals and expectations about what liposuction can achieve.
Liposuction is not a cure for cellulite. It can, however, smooth fat in targeted areas. Liposuction is also not a treatment for obesity or excess weight, and it’s important to be within a healthy weight range. Typically, patients are within 15 to 20 pounds of their targeted healthy body weight.
The surgical procedure generally takes one to several hours to perform and is often an outpatient procedure when done by itself. Liposuction can be combined with other surgeries and treatment, such as mommy makeovers and body-contouring procedures such as arm-lifts (brachioplasty), thigh-lifts (thighplasty), and abdominoplasty (tummy tucks).
Maximizing the Long-Term Benefits
Liposuction reduces fat deposits but should not be used for weight management. Results are permanent for patients that maintain a healthy weight. Dr Izadpanah strongly recommends that patients maintain a healthy diet and exercise to optimize the long-term impact of liposuction.
