Q: What is Liposuction Surgery?
A: Liposuction Surgery also known as Abdominoplasty is performed to treat areas of excess fat in the stomach, buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, calves, ankles, breasts (including male breast enlargement), back, arms and neck.
Q: Is the Liposuction procedure safe?
A: Liposuction is safe and effective and can be performed on both men and women. This surgery is one of the most common procedures, in Orange County, CA. It is performed by specialized surgeons like Dr. Hamid Hajarian and fortunately, significant complications from Liposuction surgery are uncommon.
Q: Does the Liposuction have any risks or potential complications?
A: Risks and potential complications are best discussed directly with Dr. Hajarian during the initial consultation because those risks will vary based on your personal health and body structure.
Some potential complications may include Hematoma (an accumulation of blood under the skin), infection, changes in sensation, scarring, allergic reactions, damage to underlying structures, need for revisions, unsatisfactory results possibly necessitating additional procedures. Other risks more specific to liposuction may include indentations and irregularities.
Q: Do I need to take any medications?
A: Certain medications that increase the risk of bleeding such as Aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, and some vitamins/homeopathic regimens should be discontinued before undergoing the surgery. Dr. Hajarian and his team will provide you with additional preoperative instructions during your consultation.
Q: How do I prepare for the Liposuction Procedure?
A: At Davinci Surgical, we always remind our patients that personal health is the place to start. We don’t remove fat from a person until they recognize the need for a healthy diet and lifestyle, which includes exercise, vegetables. If you are a smoker, Dr. Hajarian recommends that you quit well in advance of any surgery as smoking can impair the healing process.
You can help minimize certain risks by following the advice and instructions we provide, both before and after your liposuction surgery. At Davinci Surgical, our goal is to make your surgical experience as easy and comfortable as possible.
