5 Reasons Not to Get Liposuction… And Why They Don’t Matter

Minimally Invasive Liposuction Procedures in Beverly HillsWhat’s your reason for not getting liposuction? Are you afraid of the recovery? Worried about an invasive surgery? Everyone has their reasons, but more often than not the reasons aren’t grounded in actual medical science. Today’s liposuction is much different than it once was. If you want to trim and sculpt your body, but have something holding you back, find your excuse in the list below and see why liposuction might be just what you’ve been wanting. Your reason to not get lipo might be exactly why you should.

I Don’t Want to Undergo an Invasive Surgery

Years ago liposuction was a major surgical procedure. Patients would often check into the hospital where they would undergo general anesthesia and a lengthy surgery while excess fat was removed. Today’s liposuction is different. The procedure can be performed non-invasively, out of the hospital in a clinical setting. We perform liposuction in the comfort of our offices, often using only local anesthetic. You’ll walk in and walk out.

I Don’t Want Unsightly Scars

Since liposuction is now performed non-invasively you won’t have to worry about cuts or scarring. If you’re looking for a non-surgical liposuction option you might like BodyJet liposuction which uses a gentle pulsating water solution to dislodge fat cells for easier removal. A small sterile syringe gently suctions away the loosened fat while Dr. Berger’s expert hands create smooth contours and gorgeous curves.

I Can’t Miss Work to Recover

Forget weeks of recovery, with today’s modern liposuction techniques you can get back to work the very next day. A typical liposuction treatment only takes a couple of hours and most people are back to their regular activities shortly afterwards. You might have a bit of bruising or swelling (which are significantly reduced by using our advanced liposuction techniques), but you shouldn’t have to miss out on work and other activities while you recover. We’ll help you determine what you might expect from your recovery.

I Have a Busy Life

Just because you are busy doesn’t mean you don’t have the time to be beautiful. If you have a busy life, we have a liposuction treatment that can meet your needs. Our SmartLipo treatment uses a powerful laser to melt away fat and tighten skin at the same time. A liposculpture treatment can gently contour your body creating the perfect shape. BodyJet liposuction treats multiple areas (including the hips, abdomen or thighs) in just a few hours and extracted fat can be immediately injected into areas needing a boost.

Liposuction Isn’t Safe

Today liposuction is the safest it’s ever been. Since the treatments can be performed without general anesthesia, there isn’t the risk of a reaction there once was. Dr. Berger is an expert in today’s non-invasive techniques, teaching others how to best use these treatments for optimal beauty. If you’re worried about the safety of liposuction, talk with us. We’d love to help you understand how safe and effective liposuction can be.
