Despite diet and exercise, this 27-year-old woman from Irvine had pockets of fat on her hips, flanks, and thighs creating "saddle bags" that made her body look less balanced. She decided to meet with one of the board-certified plastic surgeons at Dr. Stoker's Practice to find out if she was a candidate for Los Angeles liposuction. She and her surgeon discussed her appearance goals and together determined that she would receive power-assisted liposuction of her inner and outer thighs, as well as her hips and flanks.
The surgeons at Plastic Surgery utilize a number of different, up-to-date techniques to make sure their patients enjoy better results with as little downtime as possible. In older liposuction methods, the surgeon would break up the fat by moving the liposuction wand, or cannula, through the fat in a vigorous motion that often damaged nearby tissues. Power-assisted liposuction helps avoid this problem by using a cannula that vibrates gently, helping the surgeon to remove fat in a more smooth, precise way and allowing patients to recover faster.
Six weeks after her procedure, the patient is already very pleased with her results, and in her before and after photos it's clear that her liposuction surgery in Los Angeles has enhanced the look of her whole body. Without the excess fat at her hips and thighs, her legs look slimmer, and now that her hips have a gentler curve, her waist looks smaller and flatter. From behind, her buttocks also look tighter and firmer.
