Liposuction Inland Empire
We all accumulate fat. No matter how hard we diet or exercise there are always some days we consume more calories than we are able to work off through daily activity. Sometimes it’s simply genetics that are to blame for fat depositing in unwanted areas on our body. For most it is the disproportionate distribution of fat to areas such as the hips, abdomen or thighs that is the problem. No matter the cause of weight gain Dr. Wali’s Inland Empire Liposuction offers a solution to undesirable fat accumulation and will leave you with a slimmer better proportioned figure. Liposuction (or lipoplasty) is a body-sculpting procedure to remove fat that is unresponsive to dieting and exercising. Dr. Wali is able to apply his body sculpting technique to nearly any area of the body and often works on multiple areas during a single operation. Our Inland Empire Liposuction effectively reduces love handles, saddlebags, a double-chin, a bulge around the waistline, or other unsightly fatty deposits in order to develop a better shape and create a more beautiful body.
Reasons for considering Liposuction
Eliminate fat from any of the following areas:
- Chin and Neckline
- Upper Arms
- Stomach and Waistline
- Hips and Buttocks
- Thighs and Knees
- Calves and Ankles
Create a more proportioned figure Liposuction is not a replacement for proper exercise and diet. Instead, liposuction is a reduction procedure for stubborn areas where fat accumulates. Used in combination with several areas of the body, liposuction can provide a well-proportioned body appearance. Ideal surgical candidates are those already in good physical condition but having stubborn areas that do not respond to diet and exercise.
During your consultation with Dr. Wali he will discuss the different options for anesthesia. Liposuction can be done under general anesthesia with the patient asleep or under local anesthesia where the area is numbed and the patient remains awake. The surgery begins by inserting a narrow “tube” or cannula through an incision made to vacuum out the fatty tissue beneath the skin. Dr Wali will determine the amount of fat to be removed by massaging the skin and squeezing the tissue. After eliminating the excess fat, the incisions are closed by applying a compression dressing or bandage to the area in order to prevent bleeding, reduce swelling, and support the affected area. Dr. Wali employs several different types of liposuction procedures depending on the unique need of each patient. Options will include tumescent or ultrasound liposuction. During your consultation with Dr. Wali you will discuss which method(s) are best for your ideal outcome. Liposuction can last from thirty minutes to several hours depending upon the amount of fat to be removed. Liposuction surgery is an excellent procedure that can benefit those who want to remove unattractive fatty deposits.
New techniques allow for faster recovery from liposuction procedures. The length of the recovery will depend on how extent of an operation that the patient undergoes. Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and reduce the recovery time. A support garment may need to be worn for several weeks after the surgery, depending upon which area(s) are selected to utilize the liposuction procedure. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with surgery which can be treated effectively with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize the risk for potential problems by carefully following the directions given to them by our Plastic surgery SoCal team after surgery. Our office staff will also be available to answer any questions and to check in on your comfort and recovery after your procedure.
