Exercise and diet can help tone and contour your body. But for many men and women, these do not always result in their final aesthetic goals. Fat is made of adipocytes that are active cells. Adipocytes in different body parts have different characteristics, meaning they respond differently and that is why people have those different “problem areas”. Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that eliminates stubborn fat deposits from areas such as the lower abdomen, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, and neck. Plastic surgeons use a special device known as a cannula to remove fat cells from the body in order to suit the patient’s contouring goals.
The fact that liposuction can help contour any part of the body makes it a very popular treatment choice for individuals who are struggling with excess, stubborn fat. Many patients who undergo this transformative procedure enjoy an enhanced physical appearance and an increased sense of self-confidence. While extra fat may be considered bad, it can also be considered a good thing because the fat may be removed and placed into other regions of the body for fat grafting. If you have sunken eyes, flat buttocks, small breasts, or just need some contouring, Dr. Harish Ghildiyal will be happy to help you get the most out of your liposuction with fat grafting to achieve your personal contour.
Dr. Harish Ghildiyal performs liposuction with the goal of sculpting a better shape to almost any area of the body, leading to a dramatic improvement in physical appearance. One thing that is important to remember when getting lipo is that fat cells normally just get bigger and smaller when we gain and lose weight. When we gain a lot of weight the fat cells can split and the number of cells can increase. Once fat cells are there, they never go away, unless through liposuction. Therefore, if people gain and lose weight a lot, they will keep on increasing the number of fat cells. To get back to ideal weight, they have to shrink their fat even more than before. Dr. Harish Ghildiyal have helped numerous individuals from Dehradun, and surrounding cities meet their unique contouring goals with this procedure. The surgeon understands that the needs of different individuals are unique and works to create a highly customized treatment plan to suit the needs of each patient.
Liposuction is the second most common cosmetic surgery procedure after breast augmentation. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reports that in 2019, more than 265,000 people received this treatment in the US alone. According to realpatientratings.com, more than 90% of individuals who receive a liposuction procedure are happy with the outcome of the procedure. For patients, the key to a successful outcome is to find the best board certified liposuction surgeon in Phoenix, AZ to perform their procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can Liposuction improve my health?
Lipo has been shown to have positive effects on blood chemistry. Fat cells are active, living, secreting cells. In over abundance, they have a negative impact on long term health. Lipo is the only permanent way of removing those cells.
Will I have scars?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure, which means that incisions will be made and sutured. Scars for liposuction and fat grafting procedures are usually extremely small (1cm or less) and are well concealed within the natural folds of your body. The surgeon will also recommend a comprehensive scar care program after recovery in order to make sure that your scars fade properly with time.
How long will results last?
Liposuction is a highly effective procedure that works to reduce the number of fat cells in certain areas of the body. Keep in mind though that existing fat cells can enlarge, should you gain weight. Dr. Harish Ghildiyal recommend that patients maintain a healthy lifestyle, and remain within 5-10 pounds of their post-surgical weight. Furthermore, getting pregnant after a lipo can have a profound negative impact on the outcome of this treatment, making it necessary to have another liposuction as part of your mommy makeover.
What areas does liposuction address?
Liposuction is a versatile cosmetic surgery procedure to remove stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. Harish Ghildiyal commonly performs this technique on the following areas:
- Upper arms
- Cheeks and chin
- Thighs and knees
- Calves and ankles
- Mons Pubis
Will liposuction address loose skin?
Liposuction is not a weight-loss solution. Rather, it is a solution to contour the body and address stubborn pockets of fat after weight loss. Keep in mind that liposuction will only remove excess fat and will not tighten loose skin. Skin is fairly elastic. It will tighten and loosen to a degree. Depending on the patient’s age and chemistry and part of the body the skin is located, the skin’s ability to shrink will vary. Dr. Harish Ghildiyal recommend this technique for patients who are close to their ideal weight, have good skin elasticity but are struggling with various problem areas. If you have excessive loose skin, the surgeon can recommend a body contouring procedure that entails skin tightening.
