Dr. Kenneth Hughes, MD has performed THOUSANDS of liposuction and liposculpture procedures for his very satisfied patients in the Los Angeles and Beverly Hills areas. 
 
     Many varieties of liposuction are available including ultrasonic, smart lipo, vaser lipo, and conventional or tumescent liposuction.  However, the results depend very little on the method used.  The skill of the surgeon is the critical factor.
 
     Dr. Hughes has extensive experience in large volume liposuctions of 5 L, the safe maximum amount that can be suctioned out in an outpatient setting.  While less volume can be suctioned safely, the less the fat that is suctioned the less of a change in body form that is produced.
 
And NO patient wants to go through two surgeries when one surgery would have sufficed.
 
     The liposuction or liposculpture procedure involves making a few small (4 or 5 mm) incisions through which instruments called cannulae are inserted to remove the fat in a very precise fashion.  Dr. Hughes uses small cannulae of 3, 4 or 5 mm in diameter to allow for a more precise fat extraction and sculpting.  Any area of the body can be sculpted including abdomen, flanks, back, medial thighs, lateral thighs, upper arms, and chin.  The areas are sculpted as the patient desires.   Please look at the liposuction before and after photos to see some of the dramatic transformations performed by Dr. Hughes.
 
     In addition, Dr. Hughes can use some of the liposuctioned fat to augment and fill facial areas due to aging (facial fat grafting procedure).  He can also use the liposuctioned fat to create larger, shapelier buttocks (Brazilian butt lift procedure). 
 
     In some patients, Dr. Hughes performs a large volume liposuction of 5 L of the front, sides, and back and can avoid a tummy tuck and its associated scar.   Please see some of Dr. Hughes's liposuction pictures for his patients of the Los Angeles and Beverly Hills areas.  
 
     Although Dr. Hughes has extensive experience with suctioning larger volumes, it is of paramount importance that the patient follow postoperative instructions to the letter and that the compression garment is worn as instructed. The only less than desirable result occurs when a patient develops fluid collections postoperatively, which will cause a wavy nature to the skin or wrinkles in the skin.
 
The typical liposuction patient can go back to work in a week's time, while wearing the compression garment for the first 6 weeks.
 
      Some patients may need a tummy tuck to remove loose skin in addition to liposuction.

Sometimes fat grafting or skin excision may help, but I cannot make any recommendations without photos or an exam.

   As a bodybuilder, I frequently treat patients who are physically fit.  There may be possibilities for improvement, but I would have to see pictures or perform an exam.

You may do well with liposuction alone, but an exam will be necessary to assess the skin laxity.

Q: Would Liposuction be enough? (Photo)

A: Would Liposuction be enough?

  If there is a significant component of fat, liposuction will help.  If there is a lot of muscle laxity, liposuction will not produce the result you are expecting.

Q: California plastic surgeon that has experience with lipo on calves.

A: California plastic surgeon that has experience with lipo on calves.

I liposuction virtually every area of the body from neck to abdomen to thighs to knees to arms, etc.  I hardly ever liposuction the calves or ankles, because so few people have enough fat to make a noticeable difference.  To give you an idea, I liposuction about 2000 areas or more each year, and I probably liposuction calves or ankles only a couple of times.

As a bodybuilder, I have many patients who want to look better with body sculpting.  I think that the key to liposuction is to treat those areas that are the most resistant to diet and exercise.

Q: What non surgical fat loss treatments could I qualify for? (photos)

A: What non surgical fat loss treatments could I qualify for?

There are many nonsurgical treatments available, all with less than impressive results.  If you want nice improvement of the lower abdomen and a smaller waist, I would recommend liposuction with small cannulae.
