The term “liposuction” describes a medical procedure that removes excess fat from the body, fat that cannot be gotten rid of through exercise and diet.
Liposuction in Beverly Hills is done by a dermatologic surgeon. The procedure is usually done on the thighs, belly, hips, back, buttocks, arms, or the face. The goal of the procedure is to improve the shape of these parts. Note that liposuction can also be done alongside tummy tucks, breast reductions, facelifts, and other plastic surgeries.
AM I ELIGIBLE FOR A LIPOSUCTION?
Your expectations should be realistic. Please note that liposuction does treat cellulite.
Liposuction, like other surgical procedures, has some risks. You must be in good health before you get a liposuction. To be considered eligible, you must:
- Not be a smoker
- Your skin must be elastic and firm
- Your weight must be within 30 percent of its ideal.
A conventional liposuction procedure is not suitable for persons with heart disease, blood flow issues, a compromised immune system, or diabetes.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW AHEAD OF TIME
To undergo a liposuction at Los Angeles, you’ll first of all have to do a consultation with Dr. Padra Nourparvar. You’ll discuss your goals, the benefits and risk of the procedure, the options, and the costs. During consultation, you may ask all your questions.
If you are comfortable with procedure and would like to go ahead with it, you’ll receive instructions on preparation. These may include restrictions on alcohol intake and diet.
You’ll have to discuss with your surgeon about you allergies (if you have any), and current medications (including herbal supplements and OTC medications). Your surgeon may ask you to withdraw from some medications such as certain analgesics and blood thinners.
Conventional liposuction may be done at a surgical center or a doctor’s office. Liposuction in California must be done at an accredited center such as Dr. Padra Nourparvar’s Office, which is known for its good results, safety, and professional standards.
- Liposuction is not a time-wasting procedure. You’ll go home the same day. However, you should make arrangements with a fried or a relative to drive you home after the procedure. Note that if you’ll be removing a lot of fat, then you may stay overnight.
- Before the procedure starts, affected areas of the body will be marked. Photos may be taken. These photos help to make before-and-after comparisons.
- The next step involves administration of anesthesia. You may be given a general or local anesthesia.
TYPES OF LIPOSUCTION
A few techniques are employed in liposuction. However, these techniques have something in common, which is the use of a cannula. The cannula helps to suction fat from the body.
The most common liposuction technique is tumescent liposuction. This involves the injection of a sterile solution into the affected area. The solution consists salt water together with epinephrine and lidocaine. The solution eases the suctioning process with less pain and blood.
Another method is the ultrasound-assisted liposuction. Here, energy from sound waves are used to rupture the fat’s cell walls. The energy liquefies the fat, thus easing the suctioning process.
Laser-assisted liposuction involves the use of energy from laser to liquefy the fat.
STEM CELLS FROM LIPOSUCTION
Adipose tissue is rich in stem cells. Stem cells derived from liposuction fat are referred to as mesenchymal stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells are capable of differentiating into muscle, bone, cartilage, nerve, and fat.
Stem cells have a regenerative ability meaning that they can effect repairs in any part of your body. This explains why they are referred to as Medicinal signaling cells.
Adipose stem cells are capable of treating a variety of conditions and ailments ranging from reconstruction of breast soft tissue to treatment of cerebral injuries. Stem cell treatments at Los Angeles County can be used to treat some common conditions including autoimmune, neurological, degenerative, and orthopedic issues. The cells tackle inflammation, and also stimulate your body’s healing processes.
Autologous stem cells are easily derived during liposuction at Los Angeles City.
On sample of adipose tissue may yield up to 200 million stem cells. Of these, 95 percent are mesenchymal stem cells. These cells play a very important role in self-repair processes.
At Dr. Padra Nourparvar’s Office, harvested cells are cryogenically frozen and stored in a facility that is FDA compliant. With this, they don’t age and remain viable for a long time.
At Dr. Padra Nourparvar’s Office, we are head of our contemporaries in stem cell research, cryopreservation and stem cell processing.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is liposuction?
It is a very simple concept. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess fat between the muscle and the skin. This is done to improve the body’s contour.
What’s an elastic compression garment?
Elastic compression garments were originally made to reduce bleeding time and swelling time. Surgical bleeding has been eliminated by tumescent liposuction. Your surgeon may recommend that you wear an elastic compression garment for some time after liposuction.
Is liposuction a costly procedure?
The cost depends on the number of areas that are treated. If only a single area is treated, the fee is less compared to when multiple areas are treated.
Am I eligible for liposuction?
An eligible candidate will have very realistic expectations. To be eligible, you must have good health.
Which body parts are treated by liposuction?
Areas mostly treated in women include the breasts, abdomen, outer thigs, inner thighs, hips, cheeks, neck, buttocks, and the arms. Areas mostly treated in men include the abdomen, neck area, chin, breasts, and flanks.
Is anxiety normal before a liposuction?
Most patients do experience some degree of anxiety prior to the procedure. The anxiety may be more in some patients than in others.
Can liposuction be used as a treatment for obesity?
Liposuction is not recommended as treatment for obesity. It is not effective for people who cannot lose weight by exercise and dieting.
Adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells from liposuction and resected fat are feasible sources for regenerative medicine
The use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in research and in regenerative medicine has progressed. Bone marrow as a source has drawbacks because of subsequent morbidities. An easily accessible and valuable source is adipose tissue. This type of tissue contains a high number of MSCs, and obtaining higher quantities of tissue is more feasible. Fat tissue can be harvested using different methods such as liposuction and resection. This article describes a detailed isolation protocol. Pitfalls and problems are also highlighted. The authors show a simple and efficient method to isolate adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells from different preparations. They conclude that liposuctions and resection can be used, whereas liposuction has more growth potential at higher passages. Link to the study >>>>> HERE
Adipose-derived stem cells for regenerative medicine
The emerging field of regenerative medicine will require a reliable source of stem cells in addition to biomaterial scaffolds and cytokine growth factors. Adipose tissue represents an abundant and accessible source of adult stem cells with the ability to differentiate along multiple lineage pathways. The isolation, characterization, and preclinical and clinical application of adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) are reviewed in this article. Link to the study >>>>> HERE
