Many of Dr. Amron’s patients go to his Beverly Hills liposuction office to request abdominal liposuction. It is a common misconception that liposuction is a quick and easy way to lose weight. While liposuction treatments certainly reduce fat in select areas, its main purpose is to create a more defined, proportional body. The ideal abdominal liposuction candidate would be healthy, toned, and looking to get rid of stubborn fat bulges in the stomach area.
Your abdomen is a gravitationally-prone area and subject to sagging over time. With his patients, Dr. Amron approaches the abdomen in one of two ways:
Through a central abdomen procedure, Dr. Amron approaches the upper and lower together as one unit. In many cases, if only the lower abdomen is done, the upper abdomen will not tighten and will often get looser with time. This creates an uneven, flabby appearance – a look that abdomen liposuction patients come in to correct to begin with! What a central abdomen procedure does is remove fatty layers from the upper and lower abdomen in tandem to create a tighter, firmer, more toned stomach. When done as a unit, it not only allows the procedure to create a uniform appearance, but it reduces trauma to the body – minimizing scarring.
In this type of liposculpture surgery, the upper abdomen, lower abdomen, waist, and flank are all done collectively in one procedure to create a more flattering, well-defined profile. An all around procedure creates a smooth, naturally looking end result without the risks of an uneven, ripply outcome. Your entire abdomen area will look toned and well-sculpted. With an all-inclusive liposuction procedure, recovery time is minimized. While central abdomen liposuction is great in toning the stomach area, the waist is one of the fundamental areas that positioning is extremely important in order to achieve a great result.
Many of Dr. Amron’s referrals are in search of revision liposuction – a procedure done to correct previous liposuction results. A common liposuction mistake involves poking the skin with the cannula from underneath. This practice creates dimpling and jeopardizes the overall appearance of the stomach area post-surgery. Another mistake often seen is a saggy end result as a result of being too aggressive on individuals with poorer skin elasticity. With these particular cases, it is imperative that fat must be removed from the deeper fatty layers and much more conservatively than with other patients. Dr. Amron avoids approaching the abdomen from only one access point, as it increases the chances of irregularities. With every patient, Dr. Amron always crisscrosses the tunnels from at least two to four directions to remove fat uniformly throughout the area. He finishes with using a very small spatula cannula to even out the skin surface. This helps drastically improve the texture and create a seamless layer throughout.
Liposuction and Pregnancies
If you are pregnant or are considering having a child in the near future and are interested in liposuction or a tummy tuck, it is generally preferred to liposuction the abdomen prior to pregnancy. Because of better skin elasticity, Dr. Amron can choose to remove more fat for optimal results. However, many patients who visit him have already had children. In these instances, Dr. Amron closely monitors how aggressively to approach the area, depending how elastic the skin is. If done properly, a tighter, more toned look can be achieved.
Abdominal liposuction is not for everyone. Because liposculpture surgery is invasive and its success depends largely on the health and history of each individual, Dr. Amron assesses all his patients and provides consultation to those interested proceeding. It is critical to note that Beverly Hills liposuction is a procedure for fat removal for certain areas, and is not intended as a weight loss solution, nor is it an alternative to a healthy diet or regular exercise. The ideal candidate is an individual in good health, has firm, elastic skin, and has had no previous surgery on or around the abdominal area. Dr. Amron provides onsite and phone consultations and assesses each case to see if abdominal liposuction is right for his patients. If you are a good candidate, Dr. Amron can consult you on how to prepare for your liposculpture surgery. During the procedure a small cannula is hooked up to a liposuction machine and inserted into the skin. The cannula is then manipulated to remove stubborn fatty deposits by melting, dissolving, and suctioning them from the deep fatty layer in the abdomen. Oftentimes, Dr. Amron will integrate skin tightening with abdominal liposuction to mold the exterior and create a firm, well-defined abdomen with very minimal scarring. Abdominal liposuction is an extremely popular procedure and produces great results without the obvious signs of surgery. In only a matter of 1-2 hours, your stomach will look toned, thin, and proportional.
