Oxnard Liposuction Plastic Surgeon
Liposuction Treatment for Oxnard, Ventura, Camarillo, Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Santa Barbara, and Moorpark.
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery treatments in the United States. Dr. Gorodisky performs more liposuction than any other procedure (often in combination with many other procedures). 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 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 Radio Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) with BodyTite/FaceTite, or Renuvion (also known as J-Plasma) or J-Pazty 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. Various energy devices are used along with suction to improve the results of liposuction.
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 more definition of anatomy than traditional liposuction. Ultrasonic energy also helps to loosen tough and fibrous fatty areas (especially after prior liposuction). The BodyTite or FaceTite device uses a thin probe that uses energy to melt fat cells, coagulates blood vessels, and causes skin tightening by stimulating collagen fibers under the skin. It has many safety features to control the temperature to the desired range to get the most effective treatment and skin tightening. This treatment is performed prior to removing the fat with suction. Laser liposuction was a popular way to melt the fat 10 years ago. It is still available in devices such as SmartLipo and SlimLipo, but with the invention of these new techniques, the results are much better and the treatments are much safer than with laser. Another device that is commonly used for tissue contraction is Renuvion or J-plasma. This device uses a probe that is placed under the skin after the fat has been removed with liposuction and it delivers energy via a stream of helium gas to shrink the fibers that connect the skin to the deep fascia and muscle layers. This device is much faster and can shrink the skin when the laxity of the skin is not ideal. Renuvion can achieve tissue contraction of the arms, neck, abdomen, and thighs.
