What is Liposuction?

Liposuction Reno NV

Liposuction is a minimally invasive fat removal surgery that Dr. Dahan performs to improve your figure and ultimately help you achieve your dream body.* Excessive or disproportionate fat deposits on your body can detract from your appearance and make you feel or look unhealthy and out of shape. Reno Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Dahan, can perform liposuction to effectively smooth away excess body fat to reveal your underlying muscle definition. He can help you achieve a more sculpted and shapely physique.*

Liposuction Candidates

The best candidates for liposuction are those who are at a stable, healthy weight, but have stubborn fat deposits that have resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction can be performed in conjunction with other procedures, including an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck. Liposuction is also not a method for loosing weight.

Liposuction Patient Testimonial

“Dr. Dahan and his staff are incredible. As a nurse I am very “picky” as to doctors and what I look for in them. From my initial consultation through recovery, Dr. Dahan and his staff responded quickly to any question, concern or problem I had. They far exceeded my expectations. Dr. Dahan is not only a fantastic doctor, but I would call him an artist. I am so pleased with the results of my procedures, I could not have dreamed how everything would come out! I feel incredible, my self­esteem is so much higher and people are constantly commenting on how much I smile now! It you are considering any type of reconstructive/body contouring procedure, I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Dahan and his unbelievably kind, caring and efficient office staff!”*

Liposuction Procedure

For the liposuction procedure, Dr. Dahan will make the areas you wish to improve with your input. Patients usually endure a local anesthesia method for the surgery. Dr. Dahan will then prepare the treatment area(s) with the tumescent technique. During tumescent liposuction, Dr. Dahan will inject the treatment area(s) with a solution containing saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine. The solution causes the tissue to firm, making it easier for Dr. Dahan to break up the fat cells and remove the excess fat. Fat is removed using a thin suction tube called a cannula. The tumescent technique minimizes blood loss due to the epinephrine constricting blood vessels. This minimally invasive procedure results in a reduction of fatty tissue, more proportionate body fat distribution, and improved body contours.*

Combining Liposuction with ThermiTight

Dr. Dahan commonly performs ThermiTight with liposuction on patients with undesirable subcutaneous fat and skin laxity. ThermiTight combined with liposuction can be performed on all of the areas mentioned above. Dr. Dahan performs this procedure in the office under local tumescent anesthesia. Gentle liposculpture is performed using fine cannulas to remove the unwanted fat, followed by skin tightening with the ThermiTight probe. Patients wear a compression garment for 3-6 weeks post-op. There is minimal downtime, bruising or discomfort.* Next to surgical excision of skin and fat, ThermiTight with liposuction will offer great results!*

Liposuction Recovery

The length of recovery after liposuction will depend on how much fat was removed and the areas treated. In general, most patients begin walking and moving around within 24 hours after surgery.* Usually, patients return to work within a week.*

Following liposuction, patients may experience mild tenderness and discomfort that lasts for a few days. Bruising and swelling are common after the procedure, but usually doesn’t last more than two weeks. Most normal activities and exercise may begin after two or three weeks post surgery. Patients should wear a compression garments for up to six weeks. By week six, post-operative swelling is mostly resolved and activity restrictions are lifted*
