Liposuction Beverly Hills
Dr. Dass specializes in liposuction body contouring. Liposuction is a minimally invasive technique that removes unwanted fat and improves body contours. Dr. Dass approaches liposuction as an artform to create a wonderfully sculpted body. Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed by plastic surgeons, and over 300,000 such procedures are performed yearly in the United States. Although the surgery is quite common, every surgeon has a different technique, and outcomes are technique and surgeon dependent. Dr. Dass practices a very meticulous technique with small cannulas and microcannulas.

Liposuction is not a weight loss tool and it will not make you skinny. The best candidates for liposuction are already involved in a long-term diet and exercise routine. They are already at, or near, their goal weight, but need liposuction to remove stubborn fat deposits that don’t respond well to exercise. Liposuction helps to create the desirable contours that exercise may not allow you to achieve.
Liposuction can be performed under local or general anesthesia. It is generally performed under general anesthesia when multiple areas are treated at the same time or when liposuction is combined with other procedures. When liposuction is performed under local anesthesia, and this is referred to as tumescent anesthesia for liposuction. Liposuction is well tolerated under local anesthesia.
