Liposuction Video – SF Bay Area Plastic Surgery

Posted January 07, 2019 in Home, Liposuction, Videos

As seen in the photo above, disproportionate fat of the sides causes the muffin top, which flows over the top of jeans. Liposuction removes disproportionate fat and flattens the treated area creating a more svelte figure.

Liposuction is used to remove disproportionate fat. It is best for removing bulges caused by fat beneath otherwise firm skin. Popular areas for liposuction include the:

  • Muffin top (waist)
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Male chest
  • Arms
  • Neck

The following Liposuction Video Presentation shows examples of Liposuction of many of the areas mentioned above. A general review of Liposuction, its indications and recovery is also provided along with several before and after pictures.

Liposuction Video Presentation

Liposuction can improve body proportions from head to almost the toes. In this video from KRON 4’s Body Beautiful, San Francisco Bay Area, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Joseph Mele explains and shows examples of his work. Liposuction of the abdomen, thighs, arms and back are narrated with Liposuction Before and After Pictures.

More About Liposuction

While the trunk and thighs are the most common regions for Liposuction, for properly selected patients, liposuction of the arms can provide an aesthetic benefit. When the upper arm is full, and the skin tone is good, Liposuction is used to reduce the girth of the arm, and reveal muscle definition.

Before and after pictures of arm liposuction reveal smaller arms with better muscle definition after liposculpture.

Liposuction will not significantly shrink the skin, even when a laser or ultrasound is used. If the skin is already loose and hangs off the arm, Brachioplasty (Arm Lift Surgery) should be discussed with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Gynecomastia Reduction

Next week’s video is about Gynecomastia Reduction (male breast reduction surgery). Not simple Gynecomastia, because there are plenty of “normal” Gynecomastia Reduction Videos on my site already. Next week, I discuss massive gynecomastia, like that seen after massive weight loss. Here is a preview of a more usual case where Liposuction alone, or liposuction with direct excision of the gland, is appropriate.

Liposuction can be used for gynecomastia reduction in selected cases. If the fullness beneath the nipple is fat, liposuction alone may help. If it is glandular tissue, direct excision of the gland is needed.

Liposuction can be used for gynecomastia reduction in selected cases. If the fullness beneath the nipple is fat, liposuction alone may help. If it is glandular tissue, direct excision of the gland is needed.

When the fullness of the male chest is due to fat (pseudogynecomastia), Liposuction alone can often provide adequate reduction. When a collection of firm glandular tissue adds bulk beneath the nipple/areola complex, direct excision of the gland may be necessary. In the above case, the skin is tight, so it will shrink on its own. When the skin is loose, additional surgery is needed, and this is what I will discuss next week, so stay tuned.
