Liposuction in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Glendale, Paradise Valley and surrounding AZ cities
Although liposuction is very popular with patients who are looking to achieve a slimmer contour, it’s not an appropriate method for achieving weight loss. Dr. LaBarbera and many Scottsdale, AZ liposuction surgeons recommend that individuals receiving this procedure should be at or near a stabilized weight.
Ideal Candidates for Liposuction
You may be an ideal candidate for liposuction if:
- You are an adult within 30% of your ideal weight, and with a firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone
- You can’t seem to lose stubborn fat in various trouble areas
- You have specific areas of the body that appear disproportionate
- You are a healthy individual with no life-threatening illness or medical condition that can impede healing
- Dieting and exercising don’t seem to be working to help tone your body or lose weight
Benefits of Liposuction
Your Initial Liposuction Consultation
with Dr. Jude Labarbera
Liposuction may be performed as a standalone surgery, or in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures. If Dr. Jude LaBarbera feels it is necessary for the safety of the patient, he may suggest performing the procedure over a period of time. Once the surgery is complete, patients must wear a compression garment that helps the body adjust to its newfound shape. Bruising and swelling are common but subside within a week. Following a liposuction procedure, patients need to wait for several months before they can see the final results. Liposuction will also leave a small scar that fades over time.
Dr.Jude LaBarbera offers various surgical methods for liposuction patients in Gilbert, Scottsdale, Phoenix, and the surrounding Arizona areas. Depending on the condition of the patient, the expected results and the type of liposuction method used, this procedure may be performed as an outpatient procedure. In severe cases, an overnight stay may be required. Liposuction is performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Jude LaBarbera will make small incisions and use a special device (cannula) to remove excessive amounts of fat in specific areas. How long the procedure takes to complete will vary depending on the amount of fat that needs to be removed. Depending on the circumstances around each case, Dr. Jude LaBarbera may choose to use a Tumescent ‘Super Wet’ approach, a Power Assisted, or a Laser Assisted Liposuction. During your in-person visit, your surgeon will explain the available options, and help choose the best method for you.
