You’ve taken all the necessary steps to achieve your ideal weight, but the number on the scale still refuses to budge. Most people find that the last ten pounds are often the most difficult to shed, as the fat that contributes to this weight is unusually resistant to even the strictest of diets and exercise plans. This can be extremely frustrating for patients who have implemented these lifestyle changes to improve their overall physical appearance and emotional well-being, without the success they hoped for. Liposuction is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that compliments your weight loss endeavors to facilitate your desired face and body shape.

This highly-versatile procedure is customized to treat one, some, or all of the areas most bothersome to you:
Chin and neck
Upper arms
Calves and ankles

Liposuction uses a specialized suctioning device to safely and effectively extract fat from unwanted bulges on the face and body. The precision of this procedure contours the treated areas in a manner that enhances the underlying curves while also minimizing visible scarring. The result? A defined, sculpted silhouette that looks and feels natural.

In Dr. Hooman Khorasani's experience, there are few cosmetic procedures that have the ability to significantly change a patient's life in such a positive manner as liposuction. When stubborn fat pockets are removed, patients start to appreciate their uncovered musculature that was previously hidden. As this new physique emerges, patients are further encouraged to exercise more, eat better, and improve their lifestyle choices.

Dr. Khorasani is a quadruple board-certified cosmetic surgeon who has spent over a decade helping patients achieve their ideal face and body through minimally-invasive liposuction. This extensive experience coupled with Dr. Khorasani’s commitment to surgical perfection directly benefits each patient, as your individualized treatment plan is carefully customized to provide you with optimal cosmetic results.

Before After

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a highly specialized procedure that is capable of eliminating obstinate fat bulges that, despite your best efforts, still stick around. This versatile therapy can be used to treat just one area or can be applied from head-to-toe to optimally contour your silhouette. Depending on the size and number of locations you wish to treat, this procedure is performed in-office with oral sedation and local numbing medications or in a certified operating room with general anesthesia.

Regardless of the procedure plan chosen, rest assured that any liposuction treatment performed by Dr. Khorasani adheres to the highest medical standards and is optimized to provide you with the greatest results possible.

Before & After

What areas of the face and body can be treated with liposuction?

Genetics and natural aging are the primary determinants of the distribution of face and body fat. Consequently, the position and size of unwanted fat pockets varies widely between individuals. Liposuction with Dr. Khorasani is carefully customized to target the fat collections that are most bothersome to you, irrespective of their location. Areas that are often treated with liposuction include the chin, neck, chest, back, upper arms, abdomen, flank, hips, thighs, buttocks, calves, and ankles.

What are the benefits of liposuction?

Banishing bothersome fat pockets allows the natural contours of the underlying structures to be revealed.

As determined by the treated locations, the benefits of removing fat that camouflages your natural shape include:

A defined chin and neck profile
Reduction in male breast tissue (gynecomastia)
Elimination of excess back rolls
Sculpted upper arms
A flat, taut abdomen
Eradicated love handles
Narrowed hip width
Increased inner thigh gap
Enhanced buttocks shape
Definition of lower back “Venus” dimples
Slimmed lower legs and ankle

The sculpting benefits of liposuction may be augmented by a concurrent fat transfer procedure. This innovative treatment purifies the extracted fat and transplants it into a location that will benefit from additional volumization, such as the temples, cheeks, lips, breast, or buttocks. Many patients opt to combine these two procedures for an enhanced outcome. Please visit our Fat Transfer page to determine if this adjunct therapy can provide you with optimal face and body contouring.

Additionally, we often recommend that patients consider adding BodyTite® skin tightening to their liposuction surgery. Chronic fat accumulation causes the skin to stretch in order to accommodate this additional volume. Consequently, removal of the underlying fat may cause the skin to become loose. Intraoperative BodyTite tightens the skin so that it closely adheres to the muscle that was buried beneath the now-removed fat. This firm, taut skin in combination with targeted fat banishment allows for maximal silhouette sculpting. Please visit our Subdermal Skin Tightening for the Body page to ascertain if this radio-frequency energy therapy can enhance the results of your liposuction procedure.
