Some people who have achieved massive weight loss are left with large pockets of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise. For these patients, Dr. Repta can safely perform large volume liposuction in Scottsdale, which targets these stubborn fat deposits creating a proportionate body shape.
In obese patients, large volume liposuction can be used to boost weight loss efforts, which instills confidence in achieving a specific goal. While liposuction is not intended as a primary weight loss tool, prudent use of this procedure can augment weight loss efforts and can improve overall health.
How much reduction is achieved with large volume liposuction?
Large volume liposuction is usually defined as a procedure removing up to 5 liters of fat-infused fluid from the body.
Depending on the location and volume of fat, patients can lose several sizes during one session – a dramatic difference. Patients can immediately see preliminary results from their procedure with improvement continuing through the recovery period.
Dr. Repta advises each patient on what they can expect to achieve from liposuction and whether or not their goals can be achieved through one session. Any subsequent sessions will be scheduled once the patient has fully recovered and it is deemed completely safe to continue.
Liposuction specialist needed for high volume removal
While the liposuction procedure in itself is not considered technically challenging, it requires a unique blend of surgical skill and artistic perception to remove an unsightly bulge of fat while creating smooth transitions between adjacent areas of the body.
High volume liposuction requires more than artistic and surgical skill. This procedure requires very careful monitoring of fluids in the body both during the procedure and through the recovery period. This is to safeguard against serious complications that can result from overly aggressive fat and fluid volume suctioning.
Dr. Repta is a board certified plastic surgeon with thousands of procedures to his credit, including challenging procedures such as large volume liposuction. He believes that knowing when to stop is as important as knowing where to remove the fat.
Candidates for large volume liposuction must be in good health with no uncontrolled medical conditions. Patients with severe cardiovascular disease, coagulation disorders, or who are pregnant are not candidates for this procedure.
Patients should be at a stable weight for several months and should not be using liposuction as a primary weight loss method. Many patients seeking large volume liposuction have exhausted all other avenues of reducing these resistant areas of fat accumulations, which have undermined their body toning efforts.
