Liposuction

  • Dr. Rad uses liposuction safely and permanently to remove fat through hidden and small incisions.
  • The most commonly treated areas are the flanks, central abdomen, inner and outer thighs, arms and neck.

    Recommended Procedures

    • Suction-Assisted Liposuction is most effective in the setting of good skin elasticity and in the absence of skin looseness or stretch marks.
    • There is no proven difference between laser liposuction (SmartlipoTM), VASERTM liposuction and traditional suction techniques.

    Other Options

    How It’s Done

    • Dr. Rad places very small incisions in hidden or covered areas through which a long metal ‘cannula’ (thin tube with holes at the end) is inserted and fat is suctioned out.
    • Liposuction is akin to a sculptor molding clay – achieving a smooth and beautiful result depends on the surgeon’s skill and artistic vision.

    Safety 

    • In Dr. Rad’s hands, liposuction is very safe.
    • Liposuction is not appropriate for internal ‘belly fat’ which surrounds internal organs.
    • Dr. Rad works with a board certified anesthesiologist and performs surgery a hospital operating facility.

       What to Expect

      • This is an outpatient surgery taking approximately 1-3 hours to perform depending on how many areas to treat.
      • Temporary moderate discomfort is common and is easily controlled with pain medications.
      • Bruising and swelling are common and subside over 6 weeks.
