Lipo Suction in New Orleans – Reduce or Eliminate Unwanted Fat Pockets
Even if you exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet, you might have localized deposits of fat that seem impossible to get rid of. While these deposits may be small, they can make a big difference in your overall body contour.
Fortunately, you can achieve a slimmer, more sculpted figure with liposuction fat removal procedure (targeted removal of excess fat) in New Orleans. Some of the most common areas for liposuction include the lower abdomen, buttocks, thighs, upper arms, and neck.
What Can Liposuction Surgery Improve?
Lipo for More Contoured Body Shape
Sometimes, despite your best efforts, you can’t get the results you want with just exercise and diet. A Liposuction procedure can help you look more toned, younger, and healthier.
Excess fat on your body can increase the risk of developing many diseases, such as heart disease or high blood pressure. As such, liposuction can be an important preventative measure for fat removal.
Total Body Sculpting
When necessary, liposuction extracts unwanted fat that is injected into the buttocks, breasts, hips, face, hands, etc. Fat transfer procedures can restore lasting volume to areas of the body that could benefit from additional fullness.
Is Liposuction Right for Me?
Anyone who wants their clothes to fit better and gain a more sculpted body contour can benefit from liposuction fat removal. Adult men and women of any age are candidates.
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure, not a weight-loss solution surgery. Liposuction works best for individuals who are already at average body weight. Also, liposuction will not remove cellulite or fix loose, sagging skin.
If you are interested in treating either of those issues, contact Dr. Sadeghi to discuss alternative procedures in New Orleans.
What Are My Liposuction Options?
Dr. Sadeghi has earned a reputation for using cutting-edge surgical techniques and equipment for each procedure he performs. Therefore, he offers many different types of liposuction to achieve your desired results.
Lipo360 New ORleans
Lipo360 removes excess fat from the circumference of the midsection. This addresses the lower back, hips, and flanks, as well as the abdomen.
High-Definition (hi-def) Liposuction
High-definition liposuction uses precise tools and movements to remove small pockets of fat cells from the body. This is most commonly used to develop the appearance of sculpted muscles (such as a six-pack). Hi-def liposuction allows for some of the most natural-looking liposuction results possible as it mimics natural body curves.
Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL)
During a traditional liposuction technique, the cannula is physically moved and manipulated by your surgeon to break up the fat. Power-assisted liposuction utilizes a specialized tool that automatically vibrates to break up the fat. This technique allows for more precise contouring as well as less trauma to the tissues.
VASERlipo® is a minimally invasive, ultrasound-assisted liposuction technique. VASER® offers less pain, swelling, and downtime than traditional techniques and can even tighten skin for better contours.
Unlike traditional liposuction procedures, BodyTite® is not a surgical procedure. This technique uses radio frequency energy to remodel the skin and tissues and eliminate unwanted fat deposits.
What Can I Expect After Liposuction?
What Is Recovery Like After Liposuction?
Recovery after liposuction takes about two weeks; however, this varies on the size of the treated area. If liposuction targeted a very small part of your body, you might be able to return to work within a few days. You might need more than a week of recovery after a more extensive liposuction procedure.
Swelling and bruising after liposuction are normal. Don’t be concerned if the results of the lipoplasty procedure aren’t immediately evident. It might take a few months for the swelling to go down completely.
To help decrease swelling and speed up your recovery time, Dr. Sadeghi will advise you on a few different ways to take care of yourself, including:
- Use a compression garment or elastic bandages for four to six weeks after surgery. The compression eases swelling and pain and tends to reduce rippling effects in the skin.
- Take medication to help your body heal faster and prevent infection.
- Stop smoking before and after surgery. The chemicals in tobacco smoke decrease blood flow to the surgery site, which could make healing take longer and might leave you with more noticeable scars.
- Eat a healthy diet before and after liposuction. The proper nutrients help scar tissue look more natural.
- Care for drains, stitches, and the site of surgery. The drains and stitches might stay in place from a few days to a few weeks.
- Watch for potential health risks like infection.
- Postpone your exercise regimen for a few weeks after liposuction.
- Schedule follow-up appointments.
Will I Have Scars After Liposuction?
The incisions from liposuction are small and hardly noticeable. However, any deep cut into the skin is likely to leave some mark.

Will liposuction be painful?
Liposuction can cause swelling, bruising, and soreness, which can be painful. You will have to take it easy for a few days to a few weeks after the Lipo surgery. However, the amount of pain you experience is relative to the amount of liposuction you choose to receive.
