Orlando Plastic Surgery Liposuction Procedure
Liposuction, sometimes referred to as “Lipo” by patients, is a one of the most common aesthetic surgical procedures. Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body. Also known as lipoplasty, or suction assisted lipectomy, this procedure is used to contour and shape specific areas.
A healthy diet and exercise program may still leave stubborn fat deposits in certain areas. These deposits may be genetic and very difficult to remove with diet and exercise. Liposuction is great in dealing with these hard to change areas. What distinguishes Dr. Azad from other surgeons is not only does he remove the fat, he sculpts the body into the slimmer body that you desire.
Liposuction is not a remedy for obesity and should not be looked to as a replacement for a healthy diet and exercise program. Neither should it be considered a weight loss surgery. Liposuction can be performed alone or along with other plastic surgery procedures, such as a face lift, breast reduction, tummy tuck. Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the; thighs, hips and buttocks, abdomen and waist, upper arms, back, inner knee, chest area, cheeks, chin and neck, calves and ankles.

What determines if you need an Arm Lift versus Liposuction alone?An arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, can significantly improve the appearance of arms by removing excess skin that is sagging or apear loose. Liposuction by itself, though frequently done in conjunction with an arm lift, does not correct the issue of excess skin which often is the result of significant weight loss, natural aging, and heredity.
What kind of scars can I expect from an Arm Lift?For an arm lift, the most common incision will extend from the armpit to the elbow, however the location and length of the incision will vary depending on the amount of skin that will be removed, as well as the location of the excess skin flap. Additionally a curved or z-shaped incision maybe be made during the procedure to minimize the appearance of scarring after healing.
What is the expected recovery time for an Arm Lift?Recovery time is highly dependent on the patient and how their body responds to arm lift surgery. Before leaving the center, you will be given specific instructions on how to care for your arms, medications to use, and when to follow-up with Dr. Azad. To reduce swelling, arms need to be elevated when sitting and sleeping. For the first few days, you will need to take sponge baths but showering may resume as soon as the drains come out. Patients are normally able to return to work and light activities after two weeks. After the procedure, light walking is encouraged to help stimulate healing and reduce your risk for blood clots. Exercise and normal activity can resume typically eight weeks after your arm lift surgery.
