It’s no surprise that liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. The body contouring procedure removes unwanted flab and stubborn pockets of fat to improve your body shape. At Regenerative Medical Spa, the team uses advanced aesthetic tools to perform liposuction. The aesthetic team also offers fat transfers to enhance other areas of your body with the extracted fat. To schedule a consultation, call the office in Long Beach, California, or book online today.

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that suctions unwanted fat from specific areas of your body to improve contours and shape. The team at Regenerative Medical Spa uses liposuction to remove fat from your:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Arms
  • Neck

Once the fat cells are gone, they don’t come back. As long as you maintain a healthy weight, results from your liposuction are permanent.

Am I a good candidate for liposuction?

The aesthetic team at Regenerative Medical Spa determines if you’re a good candidate for liposuction during a consultation. Though the procedure removes unwanted fat, it’s not a weight loss procedure.

To be considered a good candidate for liposuction, you must be in good overall health, close to your desired body weight, and struggle with excess fat in specific areas of your body.

You may not be considered a good candidate if you have a medical condition that may hinder healing, such as diabetes, heart disease, or a weakened immune system.

What happens during liposuction?

The specifics of your liposuction may depend on the areas undergoing treatment. The team reviews the details of your treatment plan during your consultation so you know what to expect.

The team at Regenerative Medical Spa uses SmartLipo™ to perform liposuction, which is a laser-assisted liposuction device that allows the team to perform your fat removal at the office using local anesthesia.

During your liposuction, your provider inserts the SmartLipo laser fibers into the fatty tissue under your skin through a small incision. The laser energy melts that fat and your provider gently suctions the unwanted fat away.

You may experience some pain and bruising after your liposuction, but you should be able to resume most of your activities within a day or two. You should notice an improvement in your body shape immediately after your liposuction treatment.

What happens during a fat transfer?

To enhance your natural features, the team at Regenerative Medical Spa also offers fat transfer treatments.

After removing the unwanted fat during your liposuction procedure, the team processes and purifies the fat and injects it into areas of your body you’d like to enhance, such as your face, buttocks, or breasts.

The experienced aesthetic team uses the fat transfer technique to perform the very popular Brazilian butt lift to enhance the size, shape, and contours of your backside.
