Love Handles Liposuction Procedure

During the procedure, you will be given a mild sedative to keep you relaxed. You will be awake during the surgery, and you can communicate to our surgeon should you feel any discomfort while having the laser liposuction procedure done.

The first part of the surgery involves the administration of the anesthetic agent via a small needle. Once the local anesthesia has already set it, the area to be treated will remain numb throughout the procedure so that you will not feel any discomfort. Should you feel anything, it is very important to tell us right away. We want you to be completely comfortable during liposuction surgery.

Next, Dr. Tirgari will move on to the insertion of the laser cannula into the subcutaneous layer of the skin. This is a few millimeters under the top layer of the skin so the doctor can visualize the location of the laser instrument while he moves back and forth, thereby breaking up the fat deposits for easy removal. Once the laser touches the fat cells, the fat deposits will be melted into a liquefied form and will be suctioned out during the last step of your laser liposuction treatment.

The instrument used to perform this procedure is very small, so you won’t need stitches on the incision sites. They can heal on their own and they won’t leave unsightly scars and marks in the future.

Recovery from Liposuction

Mild swelling on the treated area can be expected for one to two days. Your doctor will prescribe you some pain medications to minimize any potential discomfort. Most of our patients who had this surgery are able to get back to their work in a week or less. Dr. Tirgari will also monitor you during the entire recovery process.

Once you are sent home from our clinic, you will be advised to get planet of rest and have someone take care of you. You will be able to move and do all your chores within two days or so. Mild swelling and discomfort are completely normal and can easily be managed with medication and our detailed post-operative instructions.

The results of the procedure will be visible right away and will continue to improve as days and weeks go on. Because we perform the advanced Smart Lipo, you will recover quickly with no post-operative scarring or significant downtime.
