For many of us, the battle of the bulge is often a long, hard fight. When diet and exercise fail, liposuction can be a safe, effective alternative for removing localized pockets of excess fat. Liposuction improves the appearance of body areas that have concentrated amounts of visible unwanted fat. Through a vacuum suction like process, the fat is removed, creating a smoother, more attractive body contour and better self image. Various liposuction methods include the tumescent, fluid injection, ultrasound-assisted, and super-wet techniques & powered.

Fat is deposited in the subcutaneous layer in almost all areas of the body.

Fat is a normal component of the subcutaneous tissue layer. Fat cells may not be distributed evenly, causing some areas to be more prominent than is ideal. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that attempts to contour specific areas of fat accumulation that patients see as undesirable.

Patterns of fat distribution differ among races, ages, and sexes. The actual number of fat cells remains stable during adult life. The cells get larger with weight gain and smaller with weight loss. In general, women have a proportionately higher percentage of body fat than men. Women typically have a disproportionate number of fat cells in their hips, upper thighs, and buttock, while men tend to have a more even distribution of fat cells in the trunk. Also, liposuction is effective in changing contour because it securely removes fat cells that are distributed unevenly. The remaining fat cells still can store fat. Therefore, liposuction cannot prevent further weight gain but rather affects weight distribution.

A progressive accumulation of fat occurs intra-abdominally as one ages. This intra-abdominal fat is not treated by liposuction, thus must be differentiated carefully from subcutaneous fat when evaluating a patient for surgery

Common areas of treatment include the abdomen, flanks, back, hips, waist, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, neck, chest, and calves.

    • Have reasonable expectations of results.
    • Are only slightly to modestly overweight.

  • Your Liposuction Consultation with Dr. Chaudhari

    A suction lipectomy consultation takes a good deal of time in Dr. Chaudhari's clinic. We are interested in evaluating your health. Your medical history, previous problems, and current medication are important to determine if you are a candidate for this operation. Bring a list of your medications, vitamins, and other drugs. Current cigarette smoking and tobacco use increases surgical risks. Large weight losses or gains at any time are important. Dr. Chaudhari will examine you for

    • Locations of fat deposits
    • Skin tone
    • Possible underlying hernias

    During your consultation we will discuss risks, benefits, and alternative methods of care. Alternatives for redundant skin include (tummy tuck), breast lift, face lift, arm lifts, and thigh lifts. If your problem is one of extra tissue, not just localized fat, let us know so we can start you in the right direction for your preliminary educational material in our office. Sometimes a combination approach is necessary.

    Most liposuction surgery is done as an outpatient (you go home right after surgery). It is essentially done in my clinic,

  • Getting the answers you need

    Individuals considering liposuction often feel a bit overwhelmed by the number of options and techniques being promoted today. Your in person consultation with Dr. Chaudhari t will help. In deciding which is the right treatment approach for you, Dr. Chaudhari will consider effectiveness, safety, cost and appropriateness for your needs. This is called surgical judgment, a skill that is developed through surgical training and years of experience. Dr. Chaudhari will use this judgment to avoid complications, to handle unexpected occurrences during surgery, and to treat complications if they occur.

  • Preparation for surgery

    Our clinic will give you specific instructions how to prepare for surgery including guidelines on eating, smoking, and taking or avoiding vitamins and certain medications. If you develop an infection of any kind, especially a skin infection, your procedure will have to be postponed. Make certain to arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery, and if necessary to help you out for a day or two. If someone is available in the waiting area after surgery, Dr. Chaudhari can discuss the surgery and post surgery instructions again. A snug compression garment worn after surgery helps reduce swelling. Wear loose fitting clothing on the day of surgery that will easily fit over the liposuction sites.
