Discover a slimmer, more contoured figure with Liposuction
Liposuction is one of the most requested procedures by patients looking to reduce fat on problem areas of their body. While liposuction can help eliminate many of these fat deposits, it should not be used in place of a regular diet and exercise routine. It is mainly intended to help a patient eliminate either fat deposits that occur due to heredity and cannot be reduced through diet or as a final adjustment after a patient has dieted and were left with some problem areas.

Dr. Whitney Florin is a board-certified maxillofacial surgeon and Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Board of Facial Cosmetic Surgery.
Most liposuction sessions last about an hour and can be done under simple IV sedation and will also include tumescent infiltration. This tumescent infiltration contains a combination of adrenalin and very diluted anesthetic that helps with the removal of the fat cells.
One newer liposuction procedure utilizes ultrasonic waves to loosen the fat layer beneath the skin before removal. This ultrasonic assisted technique allows for a smaller incision than the standard procedure and may be a great alternative for patients with smaller areas of concern. This procedure allows them to address these smaller pockets of isolated fat with ultrasonic assisted liposuction and have the fat removed with a syringe instead of the typical vacuum device. In many cases, this will reduce the amount of surgery needed and shorten the recovery period for the patient.
In addition to the standard liposuction procedure used on the waistline and hips, Dr. Florin also offers a mini-liposuction treatment for areas of the face a neck with unwanted fat deposits. This more specialized liposuction procedure is something that Dr. Florin has been offering for some time in Newport Beach and can be combined with other facial techniques in a single visit if desired.
During the early part of your recovery, you may need assistance with your medication, meals and personal needs. You will be very tired. You will likely feel tender, swollen or bruised. In addition to wearing your compression garment(s), Dr. Florin highly recommends icing surgical areas to reduce swelling. She also recommends a homeopathic remedy called Arnica Montana to help speed your healing process.
Most patients are ready to return to work after a few days and can begin mild exercise after one month. Compression garments should be worn 24/7 for the first month. For the following month, compression garments should be worn at night. Bruising may be evident for five to seven days following liposuction. Swelling may occur up to six months following your liposuction. The final results should be evident within nine months.
Unlike many surgeons, Dr. Florin takes time to get to know his patients. You will have an extensive consultation. During your consultation, you’ll discuss why you are seeking liposuction. Dr. Florin will want to know what you like about your body and what you wish to change. She will also want to know your medical history, including whether your weight is stable.
She will discuss liposuction with you in detail and answer all of your questions. Dr. Florin will also discuss the location of your incisions and the amount of fat being removed. Dr. Florin’s method of treatment depends on your preference, the areas undergoing liposuction, and your anatomy.
