Excess Fat? Explore These Options

At Aristocrat Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of body shaping and sculpting treatments. Our goal is your best body and we have the treatments available to make that happen. These body contouring treatments aren’t ideal for weight loss. Achieve your ideal weight, or close to it, and then come see us to target that unwanted fat that doesn’t respond well to diet and exercise. • Liposuction– Surgical liposuction is the gold standard for treating unwanted fat. Small incisions are made and suction is used to remove excess fat. We offer Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction (UAL), Laser-Assisted Liposuction (SmartLipo), and Water-Assisted Liposuction (Body-Jet). Liposuction can be used almost anywhere on the body and we can treat multiple areas at the same time. Scarring is minimal and incisions are carefully placed to limit visibility of any scars. Most patients miss a few days of work after treatment. Results are instantaneous and continue to look better as swelling resolves over the first few months. • CoolSculpting– If you’re looking for a non-surgical, no downtime option for fighting fat, ask us about CoolSculpting. This revolutionary treatment freezes fat cells, permanently destroying them. After treatment, your body will eliminate the damaged fat cells using natural processes. There are no incisions and no scars. CoolSculpting can provide dramatic results, producing up to a 20% fat reduction with a single treatment. A second treatment can be performed after a few months for even more dramatic results. You’ll start to see CoolSculpting results a month or two after treatment with continued improvement for several months. • Cellulaze– Got cellulite? This bumpy, puckered fat is a big complaint for many women and Cellulaze is one of our most effective treatment options. It targets the underlying causes of cellulite and provides long lasting results. Cellulaze treatment smooths out pockets of fat, breaks up fibrous bands that cause dimpling, and stimulates collagen production to increase skin elasticity. Downtime is minimal and most patients are back to their regular activities in just 1-2 days. Cellulaze isn’t a fat removal treatment like liposuction or CoolSculpting, but provides noticeable results for patients with minimal to moderate cellulite. Which of these options is right for you? Schedule your consultation wir. Tehrani for personalized treatment recommendations.

Can I Still Gain Weight After Liposuction?

Liposuction provides lasting results, but you’ll get the most from your treatment if you remain at a stable weight. Liposuction and CoolSculpting both permanently destroy/remove fat cells. These cells don’t regenerate during adulthood. Once they are gone, they are permanently gone. However, you can still gain weight. If you gain weight, your new fat will be dispersed between your remaining fat cells. You’ll probably see less fat in the treatment area, but you can still gain weight. Avoiding weight fluctuations will help you enjoy your liposuction results longer. Get your body ready for summer. Schedule your body contouring consultation with Dr. Tehrani today.
