Consultations offered at our three convenient locations in Encino, Glendale and Bakersfield

Liposuction in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills could be a salvation for some women after pregnancy. During pregnancy women store fat in areas of the tummy, thighs, hips, and arms which are later difficult to rid with exercise and dieting. New moms often become frustrated with not being able to fit into their pre-pregnancy cloths. In Beverly Hills, liposuction of thighs, arms, hips, and abdomen is performed by Beverly Hills plastic surgeons to give women the figure that they want. Tumescent liposuction of the abdomen is the most popular technique used in Los Angeles. In Beverly Hills, liposuction is also being performed by other techniques using ultrasound, laser, chemical injections, and vibration techniques. “Smart” or Ultrasonic Liposuction is being heavily advertised best liposuction technique, but several scientific studies have shown that it carries far higher rate of complications with no real advantages. Hormonal changes that accompany pregnancy changes a woman’s body in many ways. There is redistribution of the body fat as a result of change in the levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, as well as thyroid and gonadal hormones. These hormonal and metabolic changes make it very hard to loose excess body fat which is stored in the deep fat pockets. Therefore, at time the only solution for restoring one’s younger size and shape is to have liposuction of abdomen, flanks, thighs, or hips.

Losing weight after pregnancy can sometimes have unpredictable results, such as loosing breasts volume and facial fullness which makes women look older. Selective liposuction of troubled areas while preserving the fat in other areas can give a woman a balanced figure and youthful appearance. In fact, after pregnancy liposuction of the abdomen, hips, and thighs can also be combined with fat grafting of other areas which are deficient in fullness and volume, such as the buttocks and the face. Fat injection of the face after pregnancy fills the deep nasolabial folds, lower eyelid hollows, forehead wrinkles and frowns. Fat grafting of the buttocks, or Brazilian Buttock Augmentation, is combined with liposculpture of the flanks and hips in order to give a woman an hourglass figure, as well as a “perky butt”.

While many women who have unwanted fat after pregnancy can benefit from liposuction in Beverly Hills, there are others who are not a candidate for liposuction. These are mothers who rather need a tummy tuck after pregnancy. In Los Angeles a High Tension Abdominoplasty combines a tummy tuck with liposuction of the flanks in order to remove loose hanging lower belly skin folds and stretch marks, as well as contouring the waist, and lifting the thighs and buttocks.

Finally, weight loss after pregnancy can result in inadvertent loss of buttock fullness. Women want to maintain their youthful figure and to be able to fill out their jeans. Brazilian Buttock augmentation utilizes fat that has been suctioned from stubborn areas of body and injects it into the buttock muscle, in order to give women a fuller and shapelier butt.
