Liposuction Candidacy

In Las Vegas, liposuction is nearly as popular for men as it is for women. But regardless of your gender identity, liposuction is not a weight-loss treatment. The goal of this surgery is to remove stubborn fat deposits that seem immune to traditional weight-loss methods. There are limits to how much fat Dr. Cambiero can safely remove with liposuction. The best candidates for this procedure are at or near their goal weight, have elastic skin, and have specific spots with unwanted fat.

Common treatment areas include:

  • Hips, buttocks, thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Knees
  • Chin, cheeks, neck
  • Upper arms

Although there are no age restrictions for liposuction, older patients with less pliable skin may not enjoy the same results as younger patients whose skin is more supple.

Liposuction Benefits

By removing stubborn fat from target areas, liposuction helps you achieve a toned body and an enhanced figure. After undergoing liposuction surgery, patients often experience more confidence and an extensive choice of clothing options. Many of our patients tell us they now participate in activities they once avoided before having the procedure, like pool parties and water skiing.

In addition to improving your figure, liposuction can also help boost your overall health. For many patients, liposuction reflects a commitment to a more active, healthier lifestyle. After enjoying their new body outline, many patients become motivated to maintain their results through strict diet and exercise. Also, women can employ liposuction as a less invasive form of breast reduction surgery. It helps women resolve neck and back pain caused by excess weight of overly large breasts.

The Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure done under general or local anesthesia administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. The operation takes from two to five hours, depending on the correction required or if you choose to combine liposuction with another procedure.

Once the anesthesia takes effect, Dr. Cambeiro will infuse the fat with a highly diluted local anesthetic to inflate the fat cells, making the extraction process more manageable. It will also help Dr. Cambeiro contour the area to a smoother, more refined outcome.

Through tiny incisions, he inserts a thin tube called a cannula to extract fat cells beneath the skin. Next, he pushes and pulls the cannula through target fat layers, breaking up the cells to suction them out. A large syringe or vacuum pump generates the necessary suction.

For multiple target sites, Dr. Cabeiro will move to the next area, making his incisions as inconspicuous as possible. Lastly, he fits an elastic compression garment over the treatment site to reduce fluid buildup and control swelling.

Once Dr. Cambiero has completed the surgery, our medical team will monitor you for one or two hours in the recovery room. Please come to the surgery center with a responsible adult to drive you home and stay with you for the next several hours.

Unrivaled Mastery

Liposuction Recovery

You should understand what is necessary after your surgery to ensure proper healing and fantastic results. If you are combining liposuction with another procedure like breast augmentation or a tummy tuck, there are additional protocols to follow after the operation.

You will return home with your surgery incisions wrapped in compression garments to control swelling. You will need to wear this post-surgical garment for at least a month after surgery, or as directed by Dr. Cambeiro.

You will go home with prescribed meds for discomfort and infection. Please take these as directed to ensure your recovery is as comfortable and successful as possible. Because Dr. Cambiero saturates the fat in the treated area with fluid during liposuction, you most likely will have drains inserted to allow the fluid to escape. This drainage usually subsides within 48 hours.

Most patients return to work or their daily routine within a week, except those who have more strenuous jobs. They may need to stay home for a week or two.

FAQs for Las Vegas Liposuction Surgery

Tumescent liposuction by local anesthesia is the safest type of liposuction. It employs general anesthesia or IV sedation. The use of a microcannula allows for a smoother outcome. A cannula is a small tube inserted through an incision in the skin to subcutaneous fat.

After liposuction, your new body contour is more or less permanent. If you experience moderate weight gain after liposuction, your figure will be a larger version of its new shape. Fat cells removed by liposuction never return.

For two days after liposuction, the amount of discomfort you experience will depend on the number of areas treated and the amount of fat removed. Expect some soreness for two to four days after, with it diminishing steadily afterward.  You may experience tenderness for up to four weeks, gradually subsiding for the next month or two.  

The appearance of the skin after liposuction will depend on your skin’s elasticity. If you skin is pliable, it should have no trouble accommodating the changes to the underlying tissue, leaving the surface looking smooth and natural.

Scars are not a widespread problem with modern liposuction techniques, which uses small cannulas (microcannulas). Thus, only a tiny incision is required, and these are usually placed in discrete location that would minimize the appearance of any scars.

This is a difficult question to answer because each patient has a unique anatomy and different cosmetic goals. Dr. Cambeiro will provide a detailed cost analysis at your liposuction consultation.

For the best liposuction in Las Vegas you should choose only a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in body contouring procedures. These surgeons are highly trained and must complete continuous education. They are also held to the highest ethical standards in medicine.
