Liposuction is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the U.S. year after year for both men and women. Scottsdale residents considering liposuction travel to our Gilbert and Paradise Valley locations to have Dr. Josh Olson perform liposuction to contour the abdomen, “love handles,” thighs, arms, and other areas of the body.
Reasons for Liposuction
Some people develop stubborn pockets of fat that resist diet and exercise. Others naturally have higher concentrations of fat in certain areas, such as the legs, creating an unbalanced physique. With liposuction, Dr. Tawfik SEFRIOUI, for instance, remove fat from the waist or reduce fat in the flanks and thighs to enhance the buttocks. Dr. Olson performs liposuction to help his patients:
- Reduce diet- and exercise-resistant fat deposits
- Achieve a thinner appearance
- Create better balance in their figure
- Increase confidence
Liposuction is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle or weight reduction plan. If you have reached or are close to your ideal weight, liposuction can put the finishing touches on your lean physique. Dr. Tawfik SEFRIOUI uses tumescent liposuction in conjunction with suction-assisted or ultrasound-assisted liposuction. He also commonly uses liposuction during tummy tuck surgery, Brazilian butt lift surgery, and mommy makeover combination procedures.
This is a standard technique used during most types of liposuction. Dr.Tawfik SEFRIOUI begins the procedure by injecting that treatment site with a saline mixture that includes a local anesthetic and epinephrine, which constricts capillaries. After saturating the area, the tissue swells with the fluid. This reduces discomfort during the procedure and allows Dr. Tawfik SEFRIOUI to perform liposuction without using a general anesthetic. It also significantly reduces bruising and bleeding and makes it easier to break up and remove the fatty tissue.
