Is Liposuction Really Necessary?

A liposuction is a form of cosmetic surgery in which deposits of fat are removed to reshape or reduce one or more areas of the body. Common areas targeted include thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and arms.

Liposuction is not a substitute for weight reduction or a cure for obesity. It is often used to reduce deposits of fat that have been difficult to move, even though the person has developed a healthy diet and activity habits. 

Liposuction is suitable for normal weight people with firm, elastic skin who have pockets of fat in certain areas that need to be removed. To be suitable for liposuction you must be physically healthy, psychologically stable and have realistic expectations.  Although the age is not a significant concern, elder people may have less skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as a younger person with tighter skin.

Dr. Kassabian has been at the forefront of refining innovative liposuction and body contouring techniques.  Depending on the procedure, you will be sedated, or receive local or general anesthesia to keep you comfortable.  Then a tiny incision is made to enter your body and remove the subcutaneous fat from the market areas.  Dr. Kassabian makes the incisions as inconspicuous as possible to minimize scarring.

Before you opt for a liposuction procedure, you need to think carefully about your expectations.

Kybella: The nonsurgical solution to redefining your chin

The fear of having a double chin is extremely common in both men and women across the globe. This fear becomes or already is a reality for many of us. Thankfully, there is now a safe and effective solution for this common issue. Rediscover your jaw-line with the revolutionary procedure, Kybella.

Kybella is the nonsurgical solution designed to dissolve stubborn under-the-chin fat. It provides maximum results and requires minimal commitment as sessions average between 20 and 30 minutes. Although it varies with each patient, 2-6  sessions scheduled a month apart are suggested for optimum results.

Kybella is the first injectable substance that the FDA has approved to treat under the chin fat. Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a fat-absorbing substance found in our bodies naturally that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected into “under the skin” fat, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The preference for fat cells leaves surrounding tissue largely unaffected. It destroys fat cells under the chin, leaving the skin substantially tighter and the jaw more contoured.
