Liposuction results often depend less on the type of procedure performed (tumescent vs. laser vs. ultrasonic) and depend far more on the skill and experience of the surgeon. Dr. Dan Yamini and Dr. Steve Svehlak frequently hear of patients describing some “discount liposuction” that led to the poor results they were left to live with. This sales tactic can often be a red flag indicating a surgeon lacking experience or the right credentials to perform liposuction properly. Dr. Svehlak: “It is very upsetting when I see these patients and their results. It seems as though some doctors perform these procedures with no regards or understanding of how the outcome will be. I feel much of this is from lack of experience by these doctors.”
Our double board-certified surgeons at Sunset Cosmetic Surgery have years of specialized training in aesthetic procedures. This has made Sunset the go-to practice for liposuction revision in Los Angeles for women and celebrities whose liposuction procedure performed elsewhere does not yield their desired results. Patients have often said to Dr. Svehlak, “I wish I had come to see you first before ever doing the procedure.”
It can be an extreme let-down when you try to make a positive change and the results aren’t what you anticipated. Don’t panic, and try not to feel discouraged; there are several ways liposuction revision can be performed.
