Liposuction for Cellulite Reduction

Liposuction, also referred to as lipoplasty or lipo, is a surgical procedure commonly performed to help patients push through the “last mile” of a weight loss or fitness-based body sculpting journey. If persistent, localized fat deposits are stopping you from achieving the slender, firm body contours you desire, you may be a candidate for liposuction in Beverly Hills at the prestigious practice of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joshua Jacobson.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is intended to eliminate stubborn body fat that does not respond to a patient’s efforts to slim down by exercising regularly and following a healthy, calorically appropriate diet. However, liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, as there are safety-related limitations to the total amount of fat that can be removed during lipoplasty. Instead, it is considered a body contouring surgery.

Dr. Jacobson is skilled in many liposuction techniques, including VASER lipo, high-definition liposuction, and 360 liposuction, which are advanced fat removal methods that allow for truly transformative body sculpting improvements. His training and experience with multiple lipo methods make it possible for him to safely and effectively target adipose cells in many areas of the body, such as the:

  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Love handles
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Neck
  • Jawline
  • Chin

Since liposuction only addresses excess fat, it is often performed in combination with other body shaping surgeries. Lipo is frequently paired with body lifts like tummy tucks, thigh lifts, and breast reductions, to accomplish the best possible results.

Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

To be a good candidate for liposuction, you’ll need to be near your goal weight and able to maintain it without significant fluctuations. You must be generally healthy and willing to follow all pre and post-operative instructions given to you by Dr. Jacobson. It is particularly important that patients are able to abstain from smoking and vaping for four to six weeks before and after their lipo procedure.

Ideal patients have firm and elastic skin in the treatment area to ensure that the skin can retract to fit their slimmer post-op contours. If skin laxity is present at the treatment site, surgical skin excision will likely be needed in combination with liposuction. 

What to Expect During Liposuction Surgery

Liposuction surgery begins with either local anesthesia or general anesthesia depending on the patient’s needs. Dr. Jacobson then makes the necessary incision(s) in the treatment area.

Next, a small, hollow tube called a cannula is inserted via the incision(s). Dr. Jacobson may use tumescent fluid or ultrasound energy to loosen fat cells before using suction to extract them from the body.

What to Expect After Liposuction Surgery

Liposuction surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, which means you will not need to stay at the surgical facility overnight. However, you’ll need someone to drive you home after your treatment due to mobility restrictions and the effects of the anesthesia.

You must wear elastic bandages or a compression garment for a few weeks to reduce swelling and help the skin adapt to your new shape. During the initial stage of liposuction recovery, some discomfort is to be anticipated, though it can be managed with pain medications, as directed by Dr. Jacobson.
You will need to take three or four days off work and away from your normal routine to rest immediately after your surgery. Dr. Jacobson will assess your healing progress at your follow-up appointments, so he can advise you when you can safely resume more intense physical activity.

How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

No two liposuction surgeries are the same, so there is not a single, set price for this treatment. In general, the cost of liposuction varies based on how many areas of the body are being targeted, the lipo technique(s) utilized, and the patient’s specific contouring goals.
