Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery treatments in the United States. Maintaining a healthy and stable weight is achieved by appropriate exercise programs and healthy eating. However, even with such programs in place, many individuals are predisposed to genetically predetermined fat deposits which are stubbornly resistant to even the healthiest lifestyle regimens.

If you are considering liposuction to get rid of unwanted body fat that cannot be eliminated by diet or exercise, then it is highly recommended that you explore your options with board-certified Oxnard plastic surgeon Dr. Gorodisky. Dr. Gorodisky can walk you through the many varieties of body contouring and liposuction procedures available today. With all options understood and explored, you can make an informed decision with Dr. Gorodisky's help about what is optimum for your particular body and your goals regarding your health and appearance.

Liposuction Treatments

Liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable excess fat from body areas such as the abdomen, hips, waist, buttocks, thighs, knees, chin, cheeks, neck, and upper arms. Under local or general anesthesia, the procedure can be performed in the office or at an outpatient surgical center depending on the amount of fat to be removed.

Dr. Gorodisky uses various methods when performing liposuction. These include traditional suction-assisted lipectomy, ultrasound assisted liposelection with VASER, and laser lipolysis with Slim Lipo Laser also known as LifeSculpt procedure. These procedures are performed by first injecting fluid into the area that is to be treated. A tiny skin puncture is then made in as inconspicuous a place as possible. In traditional liposuction a small tube then breaks up the fat layer and suctions it out.

Using ultrasonic VASER liposelection involves applying ultrasound energy to break up the fat cells while preserving nerves and blood vessels. This extra step helps to achieve smoother results and less bruising than traditional liposuction. Ultrasonic energy also helps to loosen tough and fibrous fatty areas. The SlimLipo laser lipolysis uses a laser beam tuned specifically for fat, which targets fat cells, coagulates blood vessels, and causes skin tightening by stimulating collagen fibers under the skin. The laser incisions are much smaller than the ones used for the traditional or VASER liposuction procedure. Another advantage of using the SlimLipo laser is to achieve skin tightening of the arms, neck, abdomen, and thighs.
