As we age, our bodies tend to hold onto fat deposits that may not have been there in our youth. Liposuction is a surgical procedure through which fat deposits are removed from various parts of the body using a suction device. Through our advanced liposuction techniques, you may target certain areas where you carry undesirable fat deposits resulting in a sleeker, more sculpted figure.

Some patients seek liposuction because there are areas of fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. There are many factors that may contribute to fatty deposits lingering on the body, but it is often a natural part of the aging process or genetic programming. Fortunately, we deliver some of the best liposuction Virginia Beach has to offer, and getting rid of stubborn fat is a thing of the past.

What is Liposuction?

There are various forms of liposuction available to men and women seeking to reduce areas of unwanted fat. During the procedure, a mixture of saline, epinephrine to minimize bleeding, and lidocaine to numb the region on which the procedure is being performed, is injected into the area. Fat deposits are then suctioned out of the body to sculpt and trim the figure.

What are the Types of Liposuction?

  • Power assisted liposuction, or PAL, uses a slim cylindrical tube to suction away fat. The tube delicately vibrates to aid in breaking up the fat deposits, so they may more easily be suctioned from the body.
  • Tumescent liposuction

Dr. Kaado's Virginia Beach Liposuction procedure is generally performed with the aid of an oral sedative and Pro-Nox to aid in your comfort during the procedure. We don’t use general anesthesia, to cut down on the potential risks associated with it.

Depending on the number of areas on which the procedure will be performed, or if you plan to have large volumes of fat removed from the areas, Dr. Kaado may advise to divide the procedure into 2 sessions, as there is a maximum amount of fat that can be removed per session and a maximum amount of lidocaine that can be given per 24 hour period.

What are the Benefits of Liposuction?

When combined with proper diet and exercise, liposuction can offer a great many benefits for men and women seeking to reduce unsightly fat deposits in certain areas of the body.

The benefits include:

  • It is an alternative to more invasive surgical procedures by removing unwanted fat from areas such as the neck and chin, abdomen, thighs, or male breasts without incurring unsightly scars.
  • It can restore symmetry and a more sculpted look to your overall body shape and size.
  • It can enhance the effects of a facelift by removing pockets of excess fat in the face, chin, and neck.
  • It can enhance your diet and exercise program by removing stubborn areas of fat that are unresponsive to all your efforts.

It's important to remember that liposuction does not replace living a healthy lifestyle. Combining liposuction with a balanced diet and regular exercise program and help you restore your body to a more desirable shape and figure.

Liposcution FAQ

Is it safe?

Liposuction, when performed by a board-certified cosmetic surgeon who uses advanced liposuction techniques, it is a safe procedure. It carries minimal risks when performed correctly and is should only be performed by a very knowledgeable practitioner. You can trust your treatment to Dr. Kaado and the professionals at his private luxury clinic in Virginia Beach.

Are there any side effects?

Some of the side effects and risks from liposuction include:

  • Bleeding, swelling, and bruising
  • Uneven contouring and lumpiness beneath the skin
  • Potential for blood clots or embolism
  • Persistent numbness in the treated area
  • Potential for infection

What areas can be treated?

Most areas on your body can be treated with liposuction but the most common areas include the abdomen, face, neck, back, and thighs, and buttocks.

Does liposuction help with weight loss?

Liposuction is not intended as a weight loss treatment and should not be considered for that purpose. Liposuction is used for body contouring to trim away excess fat that diet and exercise can’t reduce, as a body sculpting technique. Liposuction is appropriate when for those who are already within range of an ideal weight and have kept it stable for several months, at least.

What if I gain weight after treatment?

If you gain weight after liposuction, the remaining fat cells in your body will swell, with less fat developing in the area treated by liposuction. If your weight gain continues, the areas treated will gain volume as well, as not all fat cells are removed with the procedure. Weight gain will compromise the results of your liposuction treatment.

Will I have loose skin?

There is the potential for loose skin after liposuction depending the quantity of fat removed and the laxity of your skin. Because you are removing fat deposits in a single treatment, instead of over the course of months or years with gradual weight loss, the skin may take longer to tighten than it does if you lost the weight gradually. You may require a skin tightening procedure to enhance your results.

Who is a candidate for liposuction?

Candidates for liposuction are healthy individuals that are ideally non-smokers and are within range of an ideal weight. Candidates should be able to show that they can maintain a healthy weight for a period of time.

Will there be any scarring?

The scarring will be minimal and in discreet areas. Liposuction requires tiny incisions in which to insertion of the cannula, which is the hollow device used during the procedure to remove the fatty deposits lingering on your body. The incisions sites do not require stitches and heal to being barely noticeable, if at all.

Can liposuction be combined with other treatments?

Liposuction is often combined with other treatments to enhance results. Additional treatments may include a facelift, where excess fat can be removed from the cheeks and neck, an arm lift, tummy tuck, or butt lift. In some instances, gentle liposuction is the first step in a custom fat grafting technique, after which the fat is purified and injected to add volume to another face or body area.
