Liposuction. Our 32 year-old female patient underwent liposuction to contour her lower body shape and give it a smoother and more shapely appearance. She was unhappy with her hip dips and cellulite on her thigh. With power-assisted liposuction, Dr. Tehrani was able to remove that excess fat and give her a more shaplier bottom. Liposuction is a procedure used to improve the body’s contour by removing stubborn fat deposits that have failed to respond to diet and exercise. Note that while liposuction removes the fat cells from the treated area, it is not a substitute for weight control or exercise. If you gain weight after liposuction, however, the fat will be distributed more uniformly throughout your body. It will not accumulate disproportionately in the same areas. If you have a double chin or localized pockets of fat on your body that have not budged despite exercise and weight loss efforts, you might be a good candidate for liposuction. A good candidate is of relatively normal weight with one or more areas of fat deposits and with good skin elasticity. Dr. Tehrani can evaluate you carefully and devises a surgical plan that uses the technology of liposuction to recontour your face or body.
