Dr. Kamran Khoobehi performs liposuction for patients who seek a safe and effective way to remove excess fat.
DR. KHOOBEHI: Liposuction is the most common procedure performed in the United States, and involves removing the fatty tissue from different parts of the body. One of the key things when you're doing liposuction is that you have to have a good candidate for liposuction. Liposuction is not a great reduction technique. It's a technique to give the patient the shape that they want and remove fat from part of the body that is resistant to exercise and dieting. For doing liposuction what I use is a technique called tumescent which is a standard form, involves infiltrating fluid and has a numbing medication to the areas being liposuctioned. But also I offer patients a technique called Vaser, and I believe that provides the patient with better recovery, less bruising, and also better results.
