Information On The Surgery Itself

Women that are interested in liposuction surgery in Los Angeles California may consult with Board Certified plastic surgeon Geoffrey Keyes at his Los Angeles plastic surgery practice for excellence in care. Dr. Keyes has extensive experience in liposuction and is familiar with the most current techniques to provide high quality care. From consultation to surgery and recovery, Dr. Geoffrey Keyes offers a sophisticated approach to service with privacy and confidentiality.

Nearly five hundred fifty thousand women from 2000 to 2008 underwent liposuction surgery to redefine body contours and/or lose weight that they were unable to lose otherwise, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Liposuction surgery allows for the permanent removal of fat cells in troublesome areas such as the abdomen, hips, back, thighs, buttocks, knees, arms and breasts.

Dr. Keyes' approach to liposuction Los Angeles is to achieve the most natural result possible. Women that have had liposuction enjoy the improvements from liposuction despite the fact that fat removed is typically a small amount for people of average or no more than 15 pounds overweight. Dr. Keyes utilizes the latest "Tumescent Technique" to provide excellent results.

The Liposuction Consultation

Next, Dr. Keyes conducts a thorough examination, answering any questions concerning the expected results and challenges associated with the surgery. Brochures illuminating the information in the video are provided. In addition, photographs of other patients who have elected to have similar cosmetic surgery are shown. A computerized video-imaging session allows visualization of the changes that are possible to achieve.

At this Los Angeles plastic surgery practice, women and men may inquire about liposuction to understand the differences between each type of technique used to perform liposuction and why Dr. Keyes prefers the new tumescent approach. Dr. Keyes will examine the proposed treatment area, review medical history, and complete a thorough evaluation to develop the appropriate treatment plan for your situation. You will also be able to read patient testimonials and view before and after photos of people with similar features to you.

The Liposuction Procedure

The liposuction procedure is performed under local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia depending upon the number of areas to be treated and the patient's preference. Dr. Keyes's plastic surgery practice is accredited by The American Association for Accreditation for Ambulatory Surgery Facilities. Dr. Keyes is Vice-President Elect of this safety organization. He has been involved with patient safety organization for over 15 years and has published on the subject of safety in outpatient surgery. The incisions are made in the general treatment area and are usually barely visible because they often fall into natural body creases. During liposuction surgery, a liquid injection is used to swell up the area of the fat cells so that they may be removed from under the skin. The incisions will be sutured and a compression garment will be placed around the treatment area to enhance recovery.

Liposuction Recovery

Within a short time following the procedure, you will be home resting. You will also receive a list of post operative instructions to allow for a smooth recovery, particularly the compression garment that should be worn in the weeks following surgery. You will meet with Dr. Keyes in the days following the procedure for follow up. The results may change, depending upon weight fluctuations, pregnancy and age. However, people are most often content with the results from liposuction for an extended period of time. There is minimal discomfort.
