At Avalon Lipo & Aesthetics, we focus on delivering high-quality liposuction to help our patients realize their body contouring goals. No matter where you may have stubborn pockets of excess fat we can help you. While many people may think of liposuction only targeting areas of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks, we also provide liposuction for a variety of other body areas that can accumulate fat.
At our office, led by cosmetic surgeon Dr. Reza Tirgari, our highly-trained staff and use of advanced methods and technology provide comfort, safety, and quality results for each of our patients. Because of the liposuction techniques and methods we use, we're able to offer treatment beyond the traditional and help you with areas of the body you might not expect. In the paragraphs to follow, we'll highlight a few of these special procedures that can help you feel and look good.
Fat can develop in nearly any part of the body. One such spot in which excess fat can become a bothersome and embarrassing issue is at the base of the neck and top of the back. This buildup of fat is often referred to as a buffalo hump, for its resemblance of the hump on the back of the animal. This fat develops on the dorsocervical fat pad, which sits at the base of the back of the neck and between the shoulders. Generally caused by obesity or genetics, this fat can also be caused by medical conditions and lifestyle factors such as:
- Poor posture
- Cushing’s syndrome
- Some HIV medications
- Tumor, pituitary, or glandular dysfunction
If you notice fat on this area of your body, we recommend seeing a medical doctor to first check if it's caused by an underlying medical condition. Once the cause has been determined, you can take steps to address the fat that developed in the hump, which may include liposuction.
As women enter puberty, they develop a small pocket of fat on their mos pubis, which is Latin for pubic mound. This rounded deposit of fatty tissue forms naturally over the pubic bones and varies in size depending on the level of hormones and body fat one has. Generally, once pubic hair grows, this area is covered and becomes less noticeable but for some women the pubic mound can enlarge to a size that is embarrassing, even making it difficult to wear some clothes comfortably.
While this deposit of fat is natural, there are some factors that can lead to the enlargement of this area, including:
Fortunately, we offer liposuction to address this area to decrease the severity of the mound. Dr. Tirgari will go over all of the procedure's details with you during your consultation so you understand what to expect with this treatment.
Gynecomastia, commonly referred to as man boobs, is a condition in which men experience an enlargement of the breast tissue, giving them the appearance of breasts. This can be an extremely embarrassing condition for men and oftentimes diet and exercise fail to help. At our office, we offer male breast reduction surgery with liposuction to help those affected achieve a more masculine physique.
This condition generally forms from an imbalance in the hormones testosterone and estrogen. If a male produces too much estrogen and too little testosterone the breast tissue may develop as it would in a female.
There can be other reasons this happens to men other than a hormone imbalance, some of them include:
- Certain cancers of the glands
- Certain steroid and anti-depressant medications
- Drug or alcohol abuse
- Significant weight gain
As you can see, we offer liposuction procedures beyond the traditional body areas. As with any cosmetic surgery procedure, your candidacy will have to be evaluated to make sure that you're in good health for the treatment you seek. Dr. Tirgari will go over this and all details of the procedure with your during a comprehensive consultation.
