Also known as lipoplasty, liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat that has not responded to diet and exercise from areas such as the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, chin, cheeks, neck and upper arms. Liposuction is an effective way to contour the body and is often used in combination with procedures that remove excess skin in places like the abdomen, arms, and thighs.
Liposuction can flatten the abdomen, reduce the buttocks, thighs and hips, slim the waist, trim love handles, and reduce fat bulges of the arms, neck and knees. Liposuction is also used in men to reduce excess tissue in the chest (gynecomastia). Additionally, liposuction (liposculpture) can help create desirable facial and neck contours.
Tight, firm body contours show off the results of your healthy habits, but in some cases even regular exercise and good nutrition are not enough to correct areas of excess fat. Liposuction is often the best solution to achieve a firmer, tighter look that truly reflects your active lifestyle.

Prior to coming into the Beverly Hills or Newport Beach surgery center, you will need to begin fasting 8 hours prior to your procedure, which means you cannot eat or drink anything at all during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water. If you have been instructed by Dr. Hovsepian to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water.
Liposuction (Liposculpture) is performed under general anesthesia which means you will be asleep and feel nothing during surgery. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, but some patients prefer an overnight stay. Out-of-town patients may stay in a near-by aftercare facility or hotel, where a "private duty" nurse is available. The surgery itself generally takes a few hours, although you should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas. Afterward, you will return to your home, aftercare facility or hotel conveniently located a short distance from the surgical center.
