What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a fat-loss tool that can slim and streamline areas distorted by stubborn, exercise-resistant fat. It is ideal for patients who wish to combat physical changes after pregnancy, childbirth, and aging. Performed on its own, liposuction can help sculpt a more balanced and shapely figure. However, liposuction is often used to enhance the results of surgical procedures such as an arm lift, thigh lift, or abdominoplasty. Liposuction is a major component of a mommy makeover, which is a combination procedure performed to help moms love their appearance again.

How is liposuction performed?

During liposuction, your surgeon will create small, inconspicuous incisions in the targeted regions. A slender tube called a cannula is then inserted to suction out the unwanted fat cells, leaving the area slimmer and more sculpted. The excess fat can be discarded, or it can be preserved for use in a fat transfer procedure at a later date. You will decide with your surgeon during your consultation which type of anesthesia will be the best option for you. Rest assured, the procedure will be pain-free and stress-free.

What are the different types of liposuction available?

Together with your surgeon, you will decide on the best approach to your liposuction procedure. Lipo options include:

Tumescent liposuction 

Tumescent liposuction involves injecting a solution into the treatment area that typically contains saline, epinephrine, and lidocaine. This mixture helps to increase the amount of fat that can be removed, minimizes postoperative bruising and swelling, shortens downtime, and reduces overall discomfort.

Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction

Powerful but gentle ultrasonic sound energy is employed to emulsify the fat deposits, making them easier and faster to remove. UAL is often chosen when the surgeon needs to treat difficult-to-reach regions of the body.

Power-Assisted Liposuction

PAL involves the use of a vibrating handpiece that helps liquify pockets of fat prior to their removal. This advanced, highly precise lipo technique can help reduce overall healing time by causing minimal skin trauma. Patients experience a faster recovery with less soreness and bruising.

What are the benefits of liposuction?

  • Eradicates stubborn, exercise-resistant fat
  • Creates a more youthful, sculpted silhouette
  • Corrects bumps and bulges
  • Allows patients to enjoy a better fit in clothing and swimwear
  • Results are long-lasting with a healthy lifestyle
  • Can jumpstart your fitness regimen and support your well-being
  • Versatile procedure that can be customized to the individual
  • Boosts confidence and vitality

Who makes a good candidate for lipo in Newport Beach?

Liposuction can revitalize your figure and help you regain your confidence and well-being. However, you should never undergo a cosmetic procedure to please someone else, and you should have realistic expectations for improvement rather than bodily perfection. If localized fat is driving you crazy even though you follow a healthy diet and exercise plan, you may be an excellent candidate for liposuction. In general, patients seeking lipo should be non-smokers in good health who are within 30% of their ideal weight and have retained good skin elasticity and muscle tone. Our team will conduct a thorough consultation to make sure your procedure will be safe, effective, and successful.

What can I expect from my recovery?

Liposuction has a shorter recovery period than other more invasive procedures. However, it’s important to follow your surgeon’s instructions carefully to ensure your healing process goes smoothly. After surgery, you will be outfitted with a compression garment to reduce swelling. Our team will send you home with a detailed aftercare plan and prescriptions for pain medications. Most patients can expect to resume light activity within a few days. Sutures will be removed within 7 days. After 2-3 weeks, patients can start performing more involved activities like exercise.

How much is Liposuction in Orange County?

Starting Cost of Liposuction at CosmetiCare in Newport Beach is $3,600 for the first area, and $2,100 per area thereafter. Your cost will vary based on the number of areas being treated, the size of the areas being treated, the amount of fat being removed, and if you’ve had liposuction before.

We also offer up to 24-month financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.

Why isn’t exact surgical procedure pricing available on the website?

Every patient’s anatomy is different and the complexity of each surgery varies from patient to patient as well as the total time in the operating room. We are able to give you a general range & starting price for the procedure however a consultation with our plastic surgeons will give you a closer estimate.

How long will Liposuction results last?

For optimal, long-lasting results of liposuction, we recommend maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This should include eating healthy and working out once cleared by your surgeon post-procedure.

When any amount of weight is gained after liposuction, it’s common to see a redistribution of fat – with new fat cells developing – in other areas of the body and can affect the treated area(s) as well. In most cases, even with slight weight gain, the treated area(s) will still look better than before liposuction.

Is liposuction a good way to lose weight? Should I lose weight before getting Liposuction?

Liposuction is not meant to be a “weight-loss” procedure but rather to help reshape and contour the treated area(s). We recommend patients be at or within 10 to 15 lbs. of their goal weight before liposuction surgery, treating the stubborn, unresponsive fat cells to help eliminate them.

What other procedures are typically combined with liposuction?

Liposuction and a Tummy Tuck as part of a Mommy Makeover is the most popular combo procedure.

When will I see Liposuction results?

Improved body contour can be noticed immediately in some patients, especially when treating saddlebags. However, swelling will improve dramatically after six weeks and continue to dissipate over the next six months. After which, you’ll continue healing for up to a year – which is when 100% results are realized.

Are there different kinds of Lipo?

Yes, liposuction is most often performed in one of three ways:

  • Tumescent Lipo allows for larger amounts of fat removal, with less bruising and swelling than traditional methods.
  • Ultrasonic-Assisted Lipo (UAL) utilizes sound waves to break up and liquefy fat deposits in trouble spots.
  • Power-Assisted Lipo (PAL) allows deeper tissue penetration through the use of a vibrating surgical wand.

Is Lipo like weight loss?

Although liposuction does even out your shape, it is not a replacement for a healthful diet and regular exercise. Liposuction is designed for patients who already enjoy a healthy lifestyle, yet are struggling with a few remaining fat deposits. Lipo is a toning procedure, not a weight loss alternative.

Does Liposuction permanently remove fat?

While liposuction permanently removes fat cells, remaining fat cells can expand, or new ones can form if you gain weight.

Is Liposuction better than a Tummy Tuck?

Each procedure solves different concerns:

  • Liposuction removes fat cells but needs good skin elasticity for optimal results.
  • Tummy tuck removes skin and fat, making this a good option for saggy belly and skin often associated with post-childbearing.

Is Liposuction better than CoolSculpting for fat removal?

This comes down to two main things:

  • Surgical vs. Non-Surgical
  • Spot Treatment vs. Larger Area

Liposuction is a popular surgical procedure that can remove small to larger volumes of excess fat. CoolSculpting is a popular non-surgical treatment that exclusively spot-treats small areas of concentrated fat cells.

When considering each, note that patients that have opted for the non-surgical route often require multiple treatments spaced out over time and rarely see as dramatic of results compared to what one Liposuction procedure can achieve.

Will insurance cover Liposuction?

Liposuction surgery is considered a cosmetic procedure, so insurance typically doesn’t cover this.

If cost is of concern, we offer financing options to help our patients pay off the cost of their procedure over time. In just minutes, you can apply here to see what you are pre-qualified for before your consultation.

Where Is Liposuction most effective?

Popular sculpting areas women often choose are the neck, arms, abdomen, thighs and hips. Male patients typically want to improve the appearance of the love handles, abdomen, chin and neck areas. During an initial consultation, our surgical team works with you to determine which fat deposits to eliminate for ideal results.

Should I be at a certain BMI before having surgery?

Patient safety is always our highest priority and it is recommended that patients reach or be close to a BMI of 30 in order to have surgery. However, there may be some exceptions that can be made based on the patient’s anatomy & overall general health. This can be further discussed with our medical professionals during your in-person consultation.

Is there scarring?

Since the surgical wand used during the procedure is quite small, only a few very tiny incisions are needed. Physical appearance will be toned and natural-looking in patients with good skin elasticity. It’s our goal to keep scarring to an absolute minimum.
