Beauty, Symmetry, Balance, Proportion
Discover A New You
One of the best feelings is finding out that bulges can be removed, unwanted curves smoothed, areas of disproportion brought into balance, and beautiful physiques refined and elevated. Suddenly old clothes look better than ever when standing in front of a mirror. Fashions previously un-wearable look great. And areas of embarrassment become sources of pride. Liposuction can produce noticeable results leaving patients happy with their new body shape. Liposuction can also be combined with our specialized tummy tuck procedure. Let Beverly Hills plastic surgeons Dr. Kapoor and Dr. Schlenker help you achieve the look you desire.
Tumescent liposuction refers to a technique that uses large volumes of very dilute local anesthesia that is injected into the fat causing the targeted areas to become tumescent, or swollen and firm. You will be able to achieve the best results if you have firm, elastic skin and are in good health. Tumescent liposuction can address distinct areas of localized fat that are disproportionate to the rest of your body.
UAL uses a specially-designed cannula (a thin medical wand) that emits high-energy sound waves to create vibration within the body. With the assistance of high-intensity, high-frequency, external ultrasound the fat cells become easier to suction out, allowing for more fat cells to be targeted during the procedure. You can remove more difficult fibrous fatty deposits and achieve smoother liposuction results almost instantly.
Laser-assisted liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a technique known as “laser lipolysis” to destroy fat cells via laser energy. Laser-assisted liposuction is particularly useful in the treatment of small pockets of fat associated with modest amounts of loose skin, common in areas such as the neck. Laser assisted liposuction is similar to ultrasound assisted liposuction as it can remove larger volumes of fat cells because the fat is zapped with a laser.

Liposuction is defined as the removal of fat from deposits beneath the skin using a hollow stainless steel tube (called a cannula) with the assistance of a powerful vacuum. Liposuction can also remove pockets of fat or other tissue that caused by medical conditions. Medical conditions such as the “buffalo hump” caused by anti-HIV drugs can be improved with liposuction.
You want liposuction because you want to get rid of stubborn fat deposits such as love handles, fat deposits in your back, hips, flanks, and thighs that won’t respond to diet and exercise. You also want liposuction to eliminate the unflattering bulges to improve your overall body contour. Liposuction performed Dr. Kapoor and Dr. Schlenker in Beverly Hills can help both men and women achieve a slim and contoured figure.
Some common liposuction side effects include bruising, swelling, tiny well-hidden scars and some numbness and itching in the treated areas.
Best candidates for liposuction should be someone who is currently at a steady weight and within about 20% of their ideal body weight. Best candidates should have healthy skin with good elasticity so that the skin can “bounce back” to resemble its former tightness of the overall skin once the fat is removed. Most importantly, best candidates must realistic expectations towards any cosmetic procedure including liposuction.
The length of an average liposuction procedure is between 1 to 5 hours, depending on the location and volume of fat to be removed.
Liposuction patients can return to work after 2 to 14 days depending on the volume of excess fat removed, and should avoid vigorous activities for 3 weeks. Visible bruising or swelling after a liposuction procedure should clear up within 7 to 10 days.
