Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the United States and one of the many procedures Dr. Sasaki offers at his Pasadena plastic surgery practice. Liposuction can be performed on most areas; however, many men from Glendale, Arcadia, and the Los Angeles area opt for sculpting the abdomen, flanks and chest.
Liposuction Before & After Photos
Your Liposuction Procedure
Liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. To the contrary, it is for fine tuning and reducing stubborn fat after diet and exercise have failed. As in any body contouring procedure, your weight must be stable and you must have a plan to maintain it. Any significant weight changes could alter the aesthetic outcome.
There is a limit to how much fat can be suctioned out safely. Therefore, the slimmer a patient is prior to this procedure, the better their outcome.
Recent advances have made it possible to do this procedure with minimal blood loss and to fine tune the aesthetic results. The liposuction procedure used by Dr. Sasaki involves infiltration of the area of interest with a solution that lessens blood loss and suctioning fat with different size cannulas. Liposuction requires few very small incisions that are usually imperceptible.

Recovery & Results
After surgery you can expect some oozing from the sites for a day or so and usual bruising and swelling. In order to optimize the outcome by reducing swelling faster and allowing the skin to scar down in a desirable fashion, patients have to wear a compression garment for 4 to 6 weeks.
