About Liposuction at Sunset Cosmetic Surgery

Sunset Cosmetic Surgery’s liposuction procedure can help to permanently remove stubborn fat cells from problem areas when dieting and exercise just aren’t enough. Hereditary bumps and bulges can create disproportionate contours of the body that are unattractive and virtually impossible to get rid of. The surgeons at Sunset use the latest technologies, customized for each case, to remove the excess bulge safely giving you the sexy, sculpted body you’ve always wanted.

Because every body is unique and requires a distinctive set of solutions, Sunset Cosmetic Surgery offers both standard volume using general anesthesia in an operating room as well as minimally invasive liposuction procedures tailored to meet your needs. Mini Sculpt liposculpture Los Angeles is lipo that is done as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia by on of our Los Angeles liposuction surgeons.

Why Does the Doctor You Choose for Liposuction Matter?

Dr. Svehlak and Dr. Yamini are double board certified surgeons who use the most advanced technologies to achieve the smoothest and most natural-looking results possible with the least recovery time. Their combined expertise and years of professional experience are why they’re among the leading surgeons for liposuction in the Los Angeles area. Unfortunately, regulations on who can perform liposuction are far too lax, leaving the door open for doctors in many specialties, such as dermatology, gynecology or ER medicine, to offer liposuction to patients after very little training. We think trusting your body to someone requires more than that.  Dr. Yamini and Dr. Svehlak have had YEARS of aesthetic training followed by many years of hands on experience, which means they know all the subtle nuances of this procedure to achieve the most natural-looking results possible for each case.

Typical Liposuction Recovery Timelines

Initial recovery varies based on whether local or general anesthesia is used.  General anesthesia is used in cases where a lot of areas are being treated or there is a large volume of fat to remove. These cases also take longer to recover from.  Smaller cases involving smaller amounts of fat or areas treated are usually done in the office using a sedative and local anesthesia (numbing). Patients  who undergo general anesthesia will usually experience more grogginess the day of and the day after their liposuction procedure. Day 2 is often the most uncomfortable as the healing process begins. A compression garment is worn after liposuction procedures to help reduce swelling and post-operative discomfort. The garment is inconspicuous and comfortably worn under clothing. It is important to avoid excessive sodium consumption to limit swelling after surgery. After liposuction, Los Angeles patients usually head back to work in 3 to 7 days, depending on the case, and can resume moderate physical activity after several weeks to their comfort level. Recovery time is often quite minimal with SMART Lipo when used in smaller areas, with patients often able to return to basic minimal activity within 24-48 hours.  It’s important to talk to Dr. Yamini or Dr. Svehlak about your case and how long you’ll likely need before you are back in action.
