In some cases, diet and exercise may not be enough to get rid of stubborn fat, so some form of body contouring is required to achieve desired results. Thousands of men and women have improved and sculpted their bodies by removing unwanted fat using liposuction. The most commonly treated areas are the buttocks, inner and outer thighs, hips, flanks (“love handles”), knees, abdomen, back, neck, and upper arms.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction, also referred to as lipoplasty, is one of the most commonly-performed cosmetic procedures in the United States and is highly popular in the Sun City, Peoria, and Glendale AZ areas. It is a surgical technique that is used to improve a person’s physique by removing excess fat deposits that are located between the skin and muscle. With advancements in the field of technology, newer techniques have helped to increase the safety and effectiveness of the procedure.

Who is a Candidate for Liposuction?

There are several different factors when it comes to liposuction candidacy. The ideal candidate for the procedure will be in overall good health and within an average weight range. The procedure is best suited for those who have a localized area of excess fat or disproportion which can be sculpted.

Because liposuction does not tighten loose skin, those who have good skin tone and elasticity will make the best candidates. Although mild skin laxity doesn’t necessarily disqualify a patient from being a candidate, it’s important to note that skin that has lost its elastic properties may not shrink with the procedure and may sag.

Patients should come in with realistic expectations and understand that liposuction is not intended to be a weight loss procedure.

All I can say is amazing. Dr. Anglelchik performed a lower area facelift and torso lipo. I wanted to look like myself only younger/fresher. Read More >

What are My Options for Liposuction?

During your consultation in the Sun City, Peoria, and Glendale AZ area, Dr. Angelchik will go over different body contouring options available to you, candidacy requirements, and answer any questions or concerns you may have. The liposuction options that Dr. Angelchik offers include:

Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL)

The method of ultrasound-assisted liposuction, sometimes referred to as ultrasonic liposuction, makes use of a cannula (small suction device) which produces ultrasonic energy. The vibration frequency of the ultrasonic probe targets fat tissue and liquefies it. Traditional liposuction techniques are then used for the removal of the fat.

Power-Assisted Liposuction

This method of liposuction uses a cannula that is equipped with a vibrating tip to help facilitate the breakup of fat. Power-assisted liposuction efficiently breaks up and suctions away fat, and it is found to be useful in cases where there is a larger volume or fibrous tissue. This technique may reduce the operative time of the procedure.

How is Liposuction Performed?

Liposuction is considered a minimally-invasive procedure that can be performed in-office with local anesthesia, in some cases. A very small incision is performed at the treatment area, through which a cannula is inserted to gently break up fat and remove it. Once the desired contours are achieved, the incisions are closed with sutures. Most patients return home after this procedure, depending on how extensive your procedure is.

Liposuction Recovery and Results

Dr. Angelchik will give you detailed instructions on how to care for your body as you recover from liposuction. These instructions will cover issues such as how to care for your incisions, how to care for the treatment region, and when you can resume activities following liposuction. It is important to follow Dr. Angelchik’s recommendations carefully to ensure a smooth recovery and an optimal outcome to your liposuction procedure.

In general, recovery from liposuction generally lasts about two weeks. However, this time frame may vary based on the extensiveness of your procedure and the area of your body treated. It is important to remember that in most cases it may take up to six months for you to see the final results. You’ll likely be asked to wear a compression garment at the treatment area to aid blood flow and help the skin adhere to the new contours.
