Liposuction is a surgical procedure which involves the removal of fat cells from the abdomen and stomach. Liposuction can be performed around the waist, thighs, arms and chin as well. Liposuction is a safe choice for a healthy individual who wants to shed some weight but with interest to maintain it. Dr. Jimmy Firouz routinely performs this surgical procedure and is able to achieve his patient’s desired results. Keeping symmetry, proportion, size and the rest of the body in mind, Dr. Firouz is an artist at his craft or both male and female patients alike.
Liposuction is performed either under general or local anesthesia depending on the extent of the surgery. The fat is removed directly through a tube called a cannula which is connected to a small incision in the skin. This allows for the fatty tissue to be suctioned out. Dr. Firouz is able to control the amount of fat removed. Contact our Beverly Hills practice today to learn more about liposuction with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
