Lipo Info

It is not uncommon for men and women to feel self conscious about their bodies. Often times, people find that there are certain areas of their body that tend to store stubborn fatty deposits that are difficult to get rid of. Diet and exercise alone may not be enough to eliminate this unwanted fat, and liposuction may be the answer that you are looking for.

Liposuction is a common outpatient procedure performed by a plastic or cosmetic surgeon. Usually the procedure takes a few hours or so, and you go home that very same day. Liposuction can be performed under varying levels of anesthesia. Many patients chose to be under a light general anesthesia, while others who are seeking to have this performed on small areas, like their chin or sides, may opt to have the procedure performed under local anesthesia.

This procedure is wonderful at eliminating the fat as well as putting your body in proportion for the rest of your life. If you body likes to hold fat along your midsection, or if you have always been plagued by thunder thighs or a double chin, then this may be the only procedure that will allow you to streamline your body. This is not to say that you will not be able to gain weight in those areas again, however, if you do gain weight, it will distribute evenly among your entire body as opposed to building up around your problem areas.

There are few restrictions post operation, and many people return to work a few days to a week or so after the procedure. Be sure to discuss the procedure itself, as well as recovery time and pre and post operative instructions with your surgeon prior to your work at

New About Tummies

Abdominoplasty otherwise known as a tummy tuck is procedure that is performed to remove excess skin of the tummy and to tighten the muscles of the abdomen if necessary. Tummy tucks are commonly performed on men and women who were once obese, have experienced weight loss, and for women following pregnancy. Many women who have had multiple pregnancies have stretched their abdominal muscles and the skin just won’t go back to the way it had been prior to the pregnancies. Typically, candidates for tummy tuck are men and women who have loose abdominal skin, or large fat deposits that just won’t go away with diet and exercise. Tummy tuck’s are performed under anesthesia. The incision is typically an extended horizontal scar. The procedure itself takes about two to three hours. Most men and women will take off two weeks before they return to work. The procedure is not the same as large volume liposuction. The results of a tummy tuck are usually long lasting, but it is important that you do exercise regularly and keep your weight under control. The procedure is often done as part of the Mommy Makeover.

Making Decisions

The decision to undergo plastic or cosmetic surgery is an important decision and shouldn't be taken lightly. Although the procedures are common, widely performed and extremely safe, it is best to go into this situation as well informed as possible. Aside from the initial internet research or hearing about surgeons through a referral, you will want to set up a consultation with a plastic surgeon. This should be a surgeon that you feel comfortable with, have placed a call to the office for some general information, like their before and after photo's on their website gallery, and so on.

During your initial visit, you should make sure you meet with the surgeon directly and go over a key elements of the surgery. In the office of Dr Lloyd Krieger, this is always the case, but no always so at other placed. You will want to discuss any and all questions you may have, possible risks, your medical history, expectations post surgery. It is also important to ask where the actual surgery will be done. If the office has an operating room attached, it is always nice to ask for a tour so that you can really cover all of your bases. After meeting with the Doctor, you will most likely meet with a consultant who will go over surgery fees as well as scheduling and dates with you. From then, you will get some pre op lab work and be in touch with the office until your surgery date. If you or someone you know is looking into getting cosmetic work done, then do not hesitate to set up an appointment today!

Making the Right Choice

With cosmetic and plastic surgery becoming more mainstream today than ever before, it is important to find the surgeon that you feel most comfortable with when deciding to undergo plastic surgery. Although its popularity is a testament to itself, it is still important to be hyper critical when choosing a plastic surgeon to perform your surgery.

Places like Southern California in general, more specifically Beverly Hills, are a mecca to plastic surgeons and there are a few important steps you should follow when making the final decision to have a surgical procedure performed. Many people are wary of plastic surgery in general because it is elective. Some feel like if something does go wrong that the situation will be magnified by the fact that this was a procedure that wasn't entirely necessary to their health. That is why, picking a surgeon is the most crucial aspect. It is important to do your research. Many people do their research by searching the web or making consultation appointments. It is best to meet with your surgeon directly and have a one on one consultation where you can get your questions answered. You should make sure your plastic surgeon goes over the procedure itself, as well as possible risks, expectations and outcomes, does an overview of your medical and surgery history as well as makes himself available for any other questions you may have. You will want to look at before and after photos, become familiar with the facility, and read patient testimonials from happy post op patients. Los Angeles plastic surgery can be a wonderful, life changing experience, and having a great plastic surgeon that you feel comfortable with is the essential ingredient to a new you!

Get the Fat Out

Many people find that as they age, they tend to hold fat in certain areas. These areas are commonly referred to as "stubborn fatty deposits" and can be difficult to lose with diet and exercise alone. Many people find that despite losing a ton of weight after embarking on a strict diet and heavy exercise regime, that they still cannot lose areas such as the upper and lower abdomen, saddlebags, inner and outer thighs, etc.

Many people chose to undergo a common surgical procedure known as Los Angeles liposuction. This body contouring procedure can eliminate fat cells and get rid of these areas once and for all. This procedure is done on an outpatient basis and can be done with different levels of anesthesia. Many people look into "liposculpture" procedures, which is in a sense, liposuction under local anesthesia as opposed to a light general. This procedure only takes a few hours and you go home that day.

We recommend to take a few days to a week or so off of work after undergoing this procedure, and most of our patients feel back to normal and are back to their normal, everyday activity within a few days or so. This surgery also helps put you into proportion and will help you stay in proportion for the majority of life. If you do go on to gain weight, you will no longer hold the bulk of it in these stubborn areas, but instead the fat will evenly distribute across the entirety of the rest of your body.

Southern California Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure in which the excess skin and fat is removed from the abdominal area and the stomach muscles are then braided and tightened to give the patient a taut, flat tummy. Many people feel as though their stomach is out of proportion with the rest of their bodies. This stubborn fatty deposit is cause for concern and embarrassment because not only is it difficult to lose with diet and exercise alone, but no one likes the look of protruding skin hanging over ones pants. Many new mothers, people who have lost significant amounts of weight and people who's stomachs are out of proportion with the rest of their bodies, seek a Southern California Tummy Tuck. This is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure that can give you the results you dream of. It is important to discuss this procedure in detail with your surgeon before getting on the track to the new you.
