How Dangerous is Liposuction?

It is normal to be concerned about the safety of an aesthetic procedure. Liposuction at Avalon Lipo and Aesthetics is performed with the highest level of patient safety, with the most advanced liposuction systems. Liposuction is one of the most effective body sculpting treatments available worldwide, and when performed with advanced techniques, is extremely safe. Very few people experience any serious side effects. 

Complications from liposuction are extremely rare, and over 400,000 liposuction treatments are performed every year in the USA. Our lipo procedures are performed under the care of Dr. Reza Tirgari, who specializes in advanced liposuction techniques, and is certified in Aesthetic Medicine. Every procedure is performed with a focus on patient health and safety, ultimate precision, and achieving extraordinary results. 

At our practice, we offer our patients state-of-the-art liposuction treatments, including:

  • Smartlipo: Smartlipo is laser-assisted liposuction. The cannula (thin hollow needle) used to extract excess fat is equipped with a laser fiber that emits energy to melt the fatty deposits from the surrounding tissue. The recovery time is shorter, and this lipo treatment has the added benefit of tightening the skin for a smoother result.
  • Thermalipo: A groundbreaking combination of Thermage skin tightening, tumescent fluid injection, and power-assisted lipo, produces a remarkably smooth result, with decreased post-op swelling and bruising.
  • Tumescent lipo: Tumescent lipo involves the injection of a fluid into the area to be treated, which swells and loosens the fat cells for easier extraction and less trauma, and no need for general anesthesia, as the fluid numbs the treatment area, and reduces swelling and the risk of excess bleeding.
  • VelaShape fat reduction: One of the most innovative body sculpting procedures available in the USA, VelaShape combines several therapies: RF (radiofrequency energy), vacuum, mechanical massage, and infrared light. The mechanical massage triggers faster lymphatic drainage to reduce fat, while smoothing the uneven skin associated with cellulite, with zero recovery time.
