Liposculpture Liposuction Santa Monica

website-minisculpture2Liposculpture is a liposuction technique which utilizes smaller instruments and special techniques designed to remove fat with improved results, quicker healing, and enhanced patient comfort and safety. Liposculpture can improve body contour without noticeable scars. Through a very small skin opening of less than a quarter-inch in size, considerable amounts of fat can be removed. Furthermore, the recovery after Liposculpture is quicker and most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities within forty-eight to seventy-two hours. Liposculpture can help to reshape and improve your silhouette by removing those fat deposits that have proven resistant to diet and exercise.

With Dr. Massey & Dr. Rahimi’s Liposculpture techniques, virtually any area of the body may be treated. Dramatic improvement can be seen in stubborn areas like saddle bags, double chins, the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, knees and ankles. Liposculpture has become increasingly popular among male surgery patients for treating areas like the love handles, stomach, chin and chest. The procedure can also be particularly beneficial for both men and women in treating a double chin. With our fat removal techniques, a beautiful chin contour can be achieved without undergoing a complicated facelift, thus restoring your youthful appearance through a simple outpatient procedure that allows you to return to work within just a few days. If you are healthy, have good skin tone and a moderate amount of excess fat, and are looking to improve your silhouette, then Liposculpture may be an option for you.

With new anesthesia techniques, patients can expect a greater level of comfort during the Liposculpture procedure. Tumescent infiltration enables us to perform the procedure strictly under local anesthesia, a technique which is often useful for small areas. Sedation is typically recommended for the comfort of the patient. The new patient-friendly, streamlined instruments developed at the Abergel Institute are an important part of our success in both Liposculpture and cellulite reduction. The use of small, slim, blunt instruments allows for less trauma, reduced discomfort and a speedier recovery. For the surgeons at the Abergel Institute, Liposculpture is very artistic.
