What is liposuction? It is simply a surgical process in which a device known as a cannula literally sucks human fat out of the body. Given the very large number of us who must regularly struggle with our weight, it’s no wonder than the procedure has become well known. Even so, liposuction is no substitute for healthy diet and exercise. Indeed, the procedure is only recommended for specific areas of fat accumulation on the body that have proven to be resistant to a reduced calorie diet and vigorous physical activity.
Dr. Payam Jarrah-Nejad, MD, FICS, FACS, also known to patients and colleagues as “Dr. J,” is a highly respected plastic surgeon and an outstanding liposuction doctor who understands the needs of patients trying to remove stubborn and unsightly fat accumulations on their bodies. Although simply having some extra body fat does not make a person a candidate for liposuction, Dr. J. is a skilled practitioner who is able to perform the surgery with minimal discomfort and scarring. A double-board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. J. is one of the most respected and admired physicians in the highly demanding world of Beverly Hills plastic surgery.
Depending upon the patient’s situation, the procedure may be under a partial or general anesthesia and performed at a fully accredited outpatient surgery center. Recovery times vary, but the patient is able to walk on the day of operation, and in appropriate candidates return to work the very next day. Special clothing, known as compression garments, are usually applied to aid in the healing process.
