Vibration Liposuction: The Latest Lipo Game Changer

vibration assisted liposuction

Liposuction remains one of the most popular things that I do. Whether as a stand-alone procedure or as part of a mommy makeover or tummy tuck, most patients want as much fat removed as possible. It still requires the right candidate, and I have written about the importance of good skin elasticity before removing fat and paradoxically it is still one of the most imprecise things that I do. Liposuction is without a doubt more of an art than a science. But there is a new game changer in both fat removal and fat replacement — vibration assisted liposuction. We… Read More

Good Body Fat vs Bad Body Fat: What They Do and How

good body fat vs bad body fat

Contrary to popular belief, all body fat is not bad fat. There is also good fat. And as I tell my patients, it’s important to differentiate between the two, especially if you’re trying to lose weight and get healthier. All fat is not created equal and putting on too much of the wrong type of body fat can lead to some serious health issues. Good Body Fat vs Bad Body Fat Our bodies are basically made up of two types of fat: subcutaneous fat – the fat that sits under the skin on our thighs, arms, and buttocks – and… Read More

Liposuction: Post-Operative Care

Liposuction Post Operative Care

In 2016, cosmetic surgeons performed 414,335 liposuction procedures. This popular form of surgery sucks the fat out of a person’s body. A cosmetic surgeon uses a device that looks very similar to a metal straw. Plastic surgeons utilize the tumescent technique to conduct all modern surgeries. Once you have made the decision to have this surgery done, it is important to know what will happen after the procedure. You can look how you want to look, but it is a good idea to understand what you should and should not be doing. Physical Activity It is a good idea to… Read More

Liposuction on the rise for men patients

Liposuction on the rise for men patients The American Society of Plastic Surgeon has just released its annual statistical report.   The report states that the number of surgical and non-surgical procedures between 2013-2014 stayed very consistent.  Despite the overall consistency there have been some shifts in who is getting what procedure done.  The number of men having cosmetic procedures is on the rise with liposuction being one of the most popular amongst men. The most popular procedure amongst men and women was liposuction for 2014.  With a total number of procedure performed clocking in at 342,494.  Other popular procedures were… Read More

A recurring problem with liposuction.

Over the past few years I have seen an increasingly common pattern in patients coming in for abdominal enhancement. I am writing about it now in this blog, hoping you will read it and be able to avoid the same problem. The scenario: a woman will come in concerned about a liposuction that was done elsewhere. When I examine the patient I find a wavy irregular lower abdomen over liposuctioned, and a full under suctioned upper abdomen. Bulgy top, wavy Bottom. The conversation goes something like this: So you had liposuction? Yes, it looked like a good deal. You had your liposuction… Read More

Arm liposuction 50/50?

Arm liposuction 50/50? A patient saw me in the office yesterday. She is having a tummy tuck and breast reduction this fall. She came in again to discuss adding liposuction of the arms at the same time. She was confused though. She had done her usual research on the internet; technologies guide to cosmetic surgery, and found that only about half of the people who had the procedure in the U.S. were happy with their results. Why? She asked. I explained….the key to arm liposuction is not the fat, but the skin. We can suck fat out of almost anywhere,… Read More

Ultrasonolaserliposuction with Power Boost!

Ok, I made up this name. There is no such thing as “Ultrasonolaserliposuction with Power Boost”, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I saw it advertised somewhere. I really just wanted to capture your attention. I have found that anything associated with the word laser, ultra or the like tends to attract attention. So why am I talking about this? Because a cool device name doesn’t always translate into the right tool for the job. Laser liposuction, Ultrasonic liposuction, Power Assisted liposuction and even good old regular liposuction are all excellent tools. They all remove fat well, but they all shrink up skin poorly, despite… Read More

What is Posterior Flank Liposuction?

posterior flank liposuction

Many of you know that I perform frontal flank liposuction on most of my tummy tucks. For those that need liposuction in this area it gives more curve and contour to the hips, and in my opinion, makes the tummy tuck look more streamlined and sexy. The Frontal and Posterior Flank The frontal flank is the love handle or the area you can grab if you pinch the roll just above your hips. In some people, this roll is mainly on the side of the body, but in some it extends all the way around above the buttocks. When it goes around… Read More

Men, Liposuction, and the Military

Men tend to be more shy when it comes to cosmetic plastic surgery. While my practice is about 80% women here in the Washington D.C area the U.S. Military unknowingly sends me a steady stream of male patients. Military doctors have decided that one way to evaluate “fitness for duty” is to have a specific ratio of neck diameter to waist diameter. If this ratio is off a discharge could ensue. While I can’t really change the diameter of the neck, I have liposuctioned liters of abdominal and flank fat from servicemen (and women) at bases all over the Maryland,… Read More

Liposuction Is Not All About the Fat!

liposuction procedure

Each day in my Maryland and Baltimore Maryland offices I see people in consultation for Liposuction. While liposuction is one of the most popular procedures that I perform I find that often it is the most misunderstood. Liposuction is not only about removing the fat – it’s also about the overlying skin and how it sits on the body.  Assessment Before the Liposuction Procedure Liposuction can be used to remove fat from just about any area of the body, but the key to a nice-looking result is having good skin tone, which has as much to do with what happens before as… Read More
