The art of plastic surgery


Advanced liposuction procedures from our board-certified plastic surgeons can eliminate excess fat pockets in virtually any body area. It can be very frustrating to engage in rigorous exercise and strict diet regimens – and still have an extraordinary amount of trouble reducing fat deposits in certain areas. Liposuction is one of the most popular surgical cosmetic enhancement treatments available, a procedure designed to remove stubborn fat pockets and help you attain beautiful new contours. At our practice, Dr. Stafford Broumand and Dr. Daniel Maman perform state-of-the-art liposuction techniques that can get rid of excess fat safely and effectively.

Liposuction can be performed in areas such as the arms, legs, thighs, buttocks, back, love handles, neck, and chin. The following chart can give you an idea of what to expect from this innovative procedure:

Benefits of Liposuction

In addition to the removal of localized pockets of diet and exercise-resistant fat, key benefits of liposuction can often include:

  • A more fit, toned appearance
  • Improved definition in the targeted treatment area
  • A relatively minimal amount of recovery and downtime
  • Long-lasting outcomes

To maximize the long-term benefits of liposuction, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle following the procedure, which includes eating a nutritious diet and exercising regularly. To help patients do so, our practice offers a complete wellness program consisting of vitamins and supplements, nutritional counseling, exercise regimens, and more – all of which can be customized for each and every individual.

The Liposuction Procedure

Unlike other practitioners who offer liposuction, our board certified plastic surgeons perform what we refer to as “liposculpting.” As opposed to simply removing unwanted fat from a particular area, our doctors utilize the liposuction technique to sculpt the body with a keen aesthetic eye, ensuring the new contours achieved beautifully complement and/or accent the patient’s figure with natural-looking results. During the procedure, a tiny incision will be made near the targeted region(s), and a saline-based solution will be dispersed throughout the area to loosen excess fat – a process that also helps decrease any potential swelling and/or bruising. Once detached, the fat is then carefully removed from the body via a vacuum-controlled microcannula, helping to sculpt the entire area for a slimmer, more youthful contour and definition.

At our practice, Dr. Broumand and Dr. Maman can perform liposuction alone or in combination with another cosmetic treatment. Depending on the number of areas being treated as well as the amount of fat being removed, the liposuction procedure typically takes about one hour to complete, though this will vary on an individual basis.

Liposuction Recovery and Results

Although some degree of bruising and swelling can be expected in the treatment areas following liposuction, Dr. Maman and Dr. Broumand can help alleviate any post-operative discomfort with medication. Many patients are able to resume normal daily activities after about one week; however, the exact recovery time will depend on the size and number of treatment areas, as well as your own unique needs. You should start noticing results during the recovery period, and they will become even more apparent in the weeks following the liposuction procedure. By sustaining a nutritious diet and regular exercise routine, the outcomes achieved through liposuction can be extremely long-lasting, if not permanent.
