What you should know before laser-assisted lipolysis treatment in Beverly Hills
Liposuction has been a longstanding cosmetic treatment sought by both men and women. Experienced surgeons such as Dr. Dennis Dass routinely perform this procedure, now with laser-assisted technologies. Lipolysis, or the breakdown of lipids in fat cells, is a process achieved with the Smart Lipo laser fat-removal method used in our Beverly Hills surgery center. Improvements in technology and techniques aside, proper research and consultation is necessary before diving right into any cosmetic procedure. One of the most important steps taken by Dr. Dass is explaining to patients what they should know about laser-assisted liposuction.
Liposuction is not intended for weight loss
The primary goal of liposuction is the loss of inches and body contouring. There is no danger in removing high volumes of fat from the body, laser assisted or not, as long as the appropriate lifestyle changes have been made. Ideally, patients who seek liposuction should:
- Be within about 25 pounds of their ideal body mass
- Maintain a healthy weight for at least three months
- Make healthy choices for food and exercise
- Have realistic expectations as to the results that can be achieved with cosmetic surgery
What laser liposuction can do for your body:
Our Smart Lipo laser assisted procedure is intended for the removal of resistant fat from areas such as the waist, hips, abdomen, thighs, and more. If you were to undergo this procedure, you could expect to see a reduction up to several inches in the areas we treat. Lumps and bulges are reshaped into smoother, flatter surfaces. You will likely notice a change in the way clothing fits and a significant boost in the way you feel about your appearance. The removal of unwanted fat from a noticeable area leads to greater confidence.
A realistic look at life after liposuction
The Smart Lipo procedure completely removes a certain amount of fat cells from the treatment site. These cells will never come back. That does not mean that slimming results will last forever. In order to retain the contours achieved through surgery, it is necessary to implement healthy habits that will keep existing fat cells from expanding. By consuming the right amount of calories for your body type and engaging in physical activities that you enjoy, you can continue feeling great about your physique.
