Beverly Hills Leg Liposuction
10+ Years Helping Patients Achieve Ultimate Beauty
With the aging process, our metabolism changes dramatically. If regimented exercise and healthy lifestyle is not followed, we acquire fat in unwanted places, such as the thighs. Our leg liposuction procedure removes these deposits of excess fat through small incisions. In fact, the procedure is similar for other parts of the body as well. It can remove a double chin, slim the tummy, slim arms, calves and ankles, as well as shape the hips and thighs.
The novel method that distinguishes Dr. David Sayah from other plastic surgeons is liposculpture. The technique allows him to sculpt the fat beneath the skin to achieve a more aesthetic result. He sculpts a muscular build in the male thigh or calf corresponding to the inscriptions of the muscles. In females, he sculpts a slimmer, more feminine shape to develop a more youthful look. Dr. Sayah doesn't simply remove fat from your leg; he sculpts them into the ideal shape. He also uses ultrasonic-assisted liposuction (UAL) and power-assisted liposuction to make the process more efficient and effective, applying a great attention detail every step of the way.

Leg Liposuction Procedure
Our leg liposuction procedure is performed by first injecting a special fluid containing anesthetic medication into the fatty tissue. A special tumescent fluid is injected into the areas to be aspirated in order to plump-up the fat while constricting the blood vessels. The fat is thereby removed more effectively with minimal blood loss.
Small 1/8 - 1/4 inch incisions are made in hidden areas to introduce the liposuction cannulae (a metal instrument with a hole at the core used to aspirate fat).
- Dr. Sayah uses several different liposuction techniques to achieve optimal natural results:
- Laser: Using a laser, the excess fat is melted to assist removal while minimizing bruising and swelling. The laser also helps in tightening the skin particularly in patients who have decreased skin elasticity.
- Power-assisted liposuction device: This device is utilized to aspirate and sculpt your fat in a calculated manner.
The fat is not simply suctioned out with a large diameter cannulae, instead
it is sculpted with a fine diameter cannulae for increased control. Large
portions of fat are never suctioned out in one maneuver. During Dr. Sayah’s
micro-liposuction procedures, the fat is removed in small amounts in order
to develop a beautiful shape to your body instead of just making your
body smaller. The small incisions are closed at the end of the procedure
to avoid unnecessary drainage of fluids out of your body. After the procedure
a pressure garment is applied to decrease swelling.
