Dr. Vu is a board-certified plastic surgeon and has been serving the men and women of Huntington Beach for many years. He is known for his care, skills, and experience and every year, hundreds of people from all over Southern California choose him for their cosmetic surgery needs. If you want to learn more about liposuction, what areas of the body it can treat, and how many areas of the body can be treated during one session, keep reading.
Liposuction is an elective plastic surgery procedure that involves the removal of unwanted fat through a cannula (a straw-like tube). Dr. Vu will make small incisions on the treatment area or areas, which he will use to insert the cannula. By moving the device in a back and forth motion, he is able to suck out those pesky fat cells.
Most Huntington Beach men and women choose to have liposuction performed on their thighs or abdomen, but there are several places on the body patients can benefit from having this procedure performed, such as:
- The chin
- The arms
- The thighs
- The sides or flanks
- The abdomen
- The breasts
- The neck
But What About the Rest of Those Fat Deposits?
Your safety is the most important thing to Dr. Vu. As with all medical professionals, his goal is to provide each of his patients with amazing results while also keeping you safe. If, after your initial liposuction treatment, you still have areas of your body you’d like to address, Dr. Vu will require you to be completely healed from your first session before making plans to undergo another procedure.
While recovery time from liposuction varies from patient to patient, Dr. Vu recommends his patients adhere to the following tips to ensure a speedy and healthy recovery:
- Take at least one week off from work and social activities
