Firouz MD FACS has put together his list of the Top 5 Tips For The Best Liposuction Results so you have all the information you need for a successful surgery.
1. Experience & Skill Of The Surgeon
Although liposuction is a pretty common procedure, it is imperative that you make sure you find a board-certified plastic surgeon to ensure you have a safe and successful surgery. Next, you should ask your surgeon to show you several before and after pictures of other patients he has performed liposuction on. This will show you his skill and ability to contour the body with liposuction. Finally, we recommend you google the surgeon’s name and see reviews from other patients and make sure the vast majority of patients have had an amazing experience with the surgeon.
Dr. Firouz is a double-board certified plastic surgeon with over 10 years of experience and performs liposuction procedures on a weekly basis in his Beverly Hills outpatient surgery center. During a liposuction consultation with Dr. Firouz, he will show you as many before and after pictures as you would like to see and will explain his minimally invasive surgical techniques in detail with you so you know exactly what to expect from surgery. Finally, Dr. Firouz will let you know that outstanding patient care and satisfaction are his top priorities. His goal is to make sure you feel comfortable and confident in your decision to have liposuction with him. You should trust your surgeon 100% prior to any surgery.
2. Get The Most Out Of Your Consultation
You are already doing your homework since you found this article, so that is a great start! We find that the patients who have taken the time to research liposuction and liposuction surgeons online before coming into the office are very prepared for their consultation. They have learned a lot online and have compiled a list of questions for Dr. Firouz. Your consultation with Dr. Firouz is a great time to ask him all of the questions you have thought of during your online research, as well as the time to explain what your motivations and goals are for your liposuction procedure. Additionally, Dr. Firouz will examine you in the office and make recommendations based on his evaluation, while considering your surgical goals and any concerns you have told him about. By the end of your consultation, you should feel 100% confident about your decision to have liposuction.
3. Minimally Invasive & Delicate Surgical Approach
Liposuction is a terrific treatment for men and women who want a slimmer and better-proportioned figure. It is most commonly used to reduce love handles, saddlebags, a bulge around the waistline, excess fat on the thighs, or other unwanted fatty deposits on the body. There are many different techniques surgeons around the world may use to perform liposuction, but Dr. Firouz only practices the most minimally invasive and cutting-edge liposuction approaches to provide his patients with beautiful results. Through a tiny incision, Dr. Firouz inserts a narrow cannula that is used to vacuum out the fatty tissue beneath the skin. Dr. Firouz uses his expertise and skills to sculpt and contour the body. After eliminating the excess fat, the incisions are meticulously closed with dissolved sutures. A compression dressing is then applied to the area(s) in order to reduce swelling.
4. Follow Your Recovery Guidelines
After your surgery, it is very important to follow the surgeon’s post-op recovery guidelines so that your body heals properly and quickly.
- Dr. Firouz instructs his patients to wear compression garments for several weeks to reduce pain and swelling. The length of time you need to wear your compression garments will depend on the areas that are treated with liposuction.
- While you might think resting after surgery means you need to lay in bed 24/7, this is not true. We want you get up every couple of hours and walk around the house to reduce the risk of blood clots.
- Go to all of your post-op appointments so that your surgeon can check on your recovery progress. If something doesn’t feel right while you are at home recovering, don’t hesitate to call your surgeon and let him know. It is very important to keep an open line of communication with your surgeon, and a good surgeon will encourage good communication during the recovery process.
Every surgeon has his own recovery guidelines based on how he performs the surgery. Dr. Firouz and his surgery coordinator will go over his liposuction recovery guidelines with you in great detail at your pre-op appointment.
5. Enjoy Your Results!
You have been waiting a long time to see the results of your liposuction, so make sure you enjoy it!!! Put on those skinny jeans that haven’t fit in years, strut your stuff out on the beach, or do whatever it is that you have been wanting to do for years because now you finally feel confident with your body’s appearance. However, it is important to practice a healthy diet and lifestyle in the days, months and years following your liposuction in order to maintain your results.
