Dr. TawfikSefrioui’s Philosophy On Liposuction


Dr. TawfikSefrioui’s Philosophy On Liposuction & Body-Contouring is Targeting Disproportion instead of weight, Liposuction sculpts or recontours the body, but does not necessarily result in weight loss. The aim of liposuction surgery is to lose inches rather than weight, and to alter the patients shape. It is very effective in removing of unwanted bumps and bulges and in improving the bodys silhouette.
3D Hi-Def dimensional approach cutting-edge non-invasive Liposuction, sub-dermal Skin-Tightening and Enhanced Fat Transfer for contour enhancement as the 4D advanced liposuction are the cornerstones of Dr Tawfik’s Expertise in His Integrative technique of Body-contouring.
mainly everything is done under Local Anesthesia.
my approach is very focused and customized, every aspect of my work and approach to evaluating potential candidates is strict and accurate. At the core of my philosophy lays one important fact that every patient must understand all aspects and steps of their Procedure and to be aware of the difference between the traditional and conventional liposuction and what other types of liposuction we are offering to them and get the full insights of the advantages that encompasses our approach compared to what is mostly done everywhere else:
  • Ambulatory
  • Fast Recovery
  • No Bruising
  • No social eviction
  • Faster result
  • Minimal post-operative pain
  • Local Anesthesia
Despite of how much excess weight a person may carry, liposuction is about balancing physical appearance and eliminating areas of genetically disproportionate fat storage. It is a surgical technique designed to remove excess fatty tissue which does not respond to traditional weight loss regimens , such as diet and exercise. When a patient comes for a consult that does not fit into this category I never hesitate to recommend an alternative course of treatment to start with. I am adherent to this principle that not only distinguishes my approach to liposuction surgery, but utmost make people hopeful to find a non invasive solution to their problems and avoid them getting through irreversible weight loss surgeries like the Sleeve or others. Beside the fact that I have been convinced throughout some years of my experience that a non candidate of liposuction can become a good candidate for it if the patient has the ambition to become one. Throughout theses steps we have good alternative to make people loose weight and get them to the point of start sculpting their parts of their bodies as we go along. We have seen in this regards a lot of satisfied patients.

Liposuction With Local Anesthesia

It is my strong belief that the patient must remain under local anesthesia throughout the liposuction procedure in order to achieve optimal results and avoid all the complications related to general anesthesia, To understand the reasoning behind this idea you must consider that under general anesthesia (putting the patient completely to sleep) the patient’s muscles become entirely lax. Under such conditions the patient isn’t able to do anything more than simply lay upon a table and it becomes hard to properly sculpt and shape the body. Remember my goal is never simply to remove excess fat but to actually sculpt and reshape the body, producing exact contours and shapes. Rather than refer to it as simply “liposuction” I call this refined approach “3D liposculpture.” When performing this meticulous procedure, proper patient positioning is very important.

Good Candidate for Liposuction

1) Contrary to popular belief, the most important in the world of liposuction is either “overweight” or “disproportionate”. Overall size and weight have no real bearing on the matter. For instance, a patient could be thin but possess areas of fat storage that are out of proportion with the rest of their body. This is the first thing to look for and is often an indicator that someone is an excellent candidate for liposuction surgery toward a mainly purpose of nice and fitted body-contouring
2) The second thing I look at is what other measures the patient has already taken in an effort to lose the disproportionate weight. If the person has dieted and exercised extensively with little or no change in these disproportionate areas, it is more than likely that these areas will only respond to liposuction. This is common in such areas as the love handles, thighs , arms , mont pubis and lower abdomen Often times the very best candidates are thin in most areas of their body with stubborn areas of disproportionate fat storage. This is usually an issue of genetics and stubborn fat. The most disproportionate fat storage is present the likely the patient will benefit quickly from his procedure instead of going through a drastic diet and lose muscle and fat from other areas of the body to make them feel unhappy and damage their facial shape and make them droopy

Liposuction as a Solution for Overweight Patients

to perform liposuction surgery on an individual who is generally overweight or Obese as opposed to other opinions, their are steps to go through before getting to performing surgery. My recommendations to patients who simply want to shed excess weight and achieve a slimmer physique have to follow the standard course of diet and exercise, I also offer hormonal and dietary counseling that can help patients struggling with general weight. I always recommend such remedies ahead of liposuction.
In my experience, most patients earnestly seeking liposuction, are looking to resolve a combination of genetic disproportion as well as some general excess weight in other parts of the body. With the only exception among these kind of patients that will not respond to any diet or exercise and have to go on Water assisted Liposuction only to solve their genetic disproportionate excess fat are the female patients with Lipedema ( please see section of the lipedema for better understanding) In these cases it is not necessary for the patient to lose weight first, however when I do perform liposuction on this type of patient, I am very careful to ensure that I have properly identified which areas of their body are actually out of proportion ( mainly their thighs, legs and arms)With these areas isolated, I can work in a targeted manner to balance out their figure. After that, it is up to the patient to lose any extra weight through standard diet and exercise. Moreover, in these cases when weight has been lost having a liposuction will help them get rid of the fat removed by liposuction and give them the will to change their lifestyle.
Nowadays with a strict and good follow up with your patient results have improved dramatically and always touch ups get your body in a continuous change to stay always fit.

STATE-OF-THE-ART, NON-INVASIVE SKIN TIGHTENING:
Tighten and tone lax skin on the face and body. With non-surgical skin tightening, cosmetic surgeons can effectively tighten moderately lax or “crepey” skin on the face, neck and body, helping patients improve their appearance and postpone the need for surgery.
Guide to Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
In general,
non-surgical skin tightening procedures work by using targeted energy to heat deeper layers of skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin production and gradually improves skin tone and texture. Some treatments also affect fibrous tissue to help smooth cellulite. There are numerous FDA cleared skin tightening treatments and technologies on the market; each uses a unique mechanism to achieve the desired result.
Why consider non-surgical skin tightening?
As we age, production of collagen and elastin—two proteins that help our skin stay plump, firm and smooth—slows down, resulting in areas of lax, sagging skin on the face, neck and body. If you are bothered by skin laxity, non-surgical skin tightening can temporarily halt this process and restore a firmer, smoother, more youthful appearance with little to no downtime.
Benefits of non-surgical skin tightening
• Tightens mild to moderately loose skin on the face, neck or body without surgery or scars
• Many treatments can provide a noticeable “lifting” effect
• Little to no downtime is needed
• Very low risk of adverse effects when performed by a qualified provider
• Treatments can be performed in-office, typically in 1 hour or less
• Results can last up to 1 year
Limitations
• Results appear gradually over several weeks or months following treatment
• Multiple treatments may be needed to achieve desired results
• Treatment will need to be repeated periodically to maintain results
• Not effective on more advanced skin sagging, such as pronounced jowling or stretched skin following pregnancy or weight loss.
In my practice I have used a combination of several tightening devices for more advanced skin sagging to achieve an improvement with usually repeated sessions periodically to enhance the desired results and for maintenance.
For certain cases with advanced skin sagging who want to avoid a bariatric surgery, sub dermal skin tightening can be used effectively to shrink the loose skin so if the lift is done latter but conventional surgery, the removed skin will be smaller and the surgery will be less invasive.
Today, Sub-dermal J Plasma is a revolutionary minimally invasive technology being used for skin tightening anywhere on the face and body, with amazing results! This unique procedure is a great alternative to traditional facelifts, painful body sculpting, and tummy tucks. The procedure shrinks and sculpts loose skin without large incisions or downtime, and is much less invasive than traditional cosmetic surgery.
