Liposculpture in Los Altos, CA

Led by board-certified facial plastic surgeon Harry Mittelman, MD, Mittelman Plastic Surgery in Los Altos is proud to offer liposculpture treatment to the men and women of San Jose, Palo Alto and the surrounding communities of California.

What is Liposculpture?

Liposculpture is a surgical procedure in which targeted areas of fat are removed. Many people are disappointed when stubborn areas of fat on their bodies cannot be banished with diet and exercise alone. These localized areas of fat can be inherited and may never go away. Liposculpture is often the only way to remove them.

Good Candidates for Liposculpture

You may be a good candidate for facial liposculpture if you would like to undergo a contouring procedure on your cheeks, neck or the lower areas of your cheeks known as the jowls. It is important to remember that the fat removed is directly under the skin. Because of this, the skin may need to redrape over the affected area over a period of weeks. Those who have skin that has lost some elasticity may require surgery to tighten or lift it.

Why Do People Choose Liposculpture?

There are a variety of reasons that prompt people to consider liposculpture:

  • You have unwanted deposits of fat that will not go away despite diet and exercise
  • You want to improve appearance, confidence, and self-esteem
  • You need help to restore your aesthetic body proportions
  • You want your clothes to fit better
  • You would like to begin a lifestyle modification program that includes a better diet and more exercise

The Liposculpture Procedure

The areas that will be treated are marked before the liposculpture begins. Liposculpture removes fat deposits through thin metal tubes or cannulae using tiny entry incisions. Multiple areas are frequently treated during the same surgical procedure and liposculpture is often utilized at the same time as other facial plastic surgical procedures.

The Liposculpture Consultation Process

During your consultation, you and the doctor will discuss your ideal look. The doctor will take as much time as you need to answer your questions and make sure you are comfortable with the process.

What to Expect After Liposculpture

After liposculpture surgery, most of our patients can resume normal day-to-day activities as soon as one day after the procedure, and they can return to work whenever they feel ready. However, strenuous activities should be restricted for at least seven days.

Please note that it may take up to three months for you to notice your complete results. During this time period,the swelling and bruising will subside, and skin redraping will take place.

Long Term Results of Liposculpture

Liposculpture results last as long as your weight does not fluctuate drastically. Slight weight gain or loss should not affect your appearance. In fact, any future weight gain will be better distributed. Many patients report an increase in self-esteem after undergoing liposculpture.
