What are the benefits of liposuction?

Imagine enjoying a slimmer look and finally ridding yourself of those stubborn pockets of fat that won’t respond to diet or exercise. Our experienced plastic surgeons in Torrance use lipo to provide these results and more. In addition to improving your appearance, this procedure can also help you feel more comfortable in clothing and enhance your body image. Common treatment areas include:

  • Saddle bags (outer thighs)
  • Inner thighs
  • Love handles (flanks)
  • Abdomen
  • Back, including the bra line

“It’s been almost a year and a half since I came in for liposuction. Every day I look in the mirror and I’m so glad I did it. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job. My self esteem is so much higher. My husband can’t believe how much happier I am.”

— J.J.

How much does liposuction cost?

In the Los Angeles area, liposuction costs begin at $6,000. At South Bay Plastic Surgeons, liposuction is priced per treatment area, so your cost will increase for each area treated and the duration of the total procedure. Liposuction is considered a cosmetic procedure, so it’s not covered by insurance. We strive to make the procedure accessible to all our patients, however, so we work with CareCredit™ and Alphaeon to help you spread the cost out over several months or years.

Is liposuction a good way to lose weight?

Our surgeons believe it’s important for patients to understand that liposuction is a body contouring procedure that enables them to remove specific areas of fat. However, liposuction is not a weight loss method. Although there is no hard-and-fast rule about BMI (body mass index) and liposuction, we recommend that patients with a BMI of 30 or higher should lose weight through proper diet and exercise prior to undergoing liposuction. Large-volume liposuction, as would be necessary with surgery on individuals with a BMI of 30 or greater, carries increased risks. If you would like to know your approximate BMI, you can calculate it using this Mayo Clinic BMI tool.

I was thrown a curve ball in 2020 (other than the usual). I was diagnosed with breast cancer. With the help of many great doctors I got through two surgeries. I was very impressed with the treatment I got from Dr. Liang. I felt very comfortable with him. He worked around my schedule and always asked me how I felt and if I had any questions. He also called my husband immediately after I came out of surgery. The staff is great as well. Hopefully I won't be needing any more surgeries but I know where I will be going if I do.

This is a review for the amazingly skilled Dr Jewell at SBPS. I had previously seen 4-5 plastic surgeons for a lift and augmentation post-breastfeeding. They all said they would need to use anchor incisions and scars. Given that I was trying to re-capture my feminine feel, this was really discouraging. I somehow decided to look to the south of me instead of North in Beverly Hills and it was fate. I discovered that Dr Jewell performed many complicated surgeries for cancer patients and I realized that if she couldn’t help me, no one could. Or no one in budget! Within a couple of minutes meeting her she reassured me that she didn’t need to do any anchor scarring at all! What I loved was that she encouraged me to go for what I wanted - saline, though she typically works with silicone, and that she was able to give me really gorgeous, natural and symmetrical results. I also appreciate that she’s kind of low-key conservative and wants a size that actually looks right on her patients. I now have GORGEOUS, symmetrical boosies that are more symmetrical and full than I’ve ever had and yet they look totally natural. Bless her! I’m only 3 months out so I’m still waiting for all the dropping and fluffing as they say but I can see the writing on the wall. These girls are gorgeous and I only wish I’d done this sooner. If you work with Dr Jewell, you’re doing yourself a favor!

Dr. Liang is a top-notch plastic surgeon and, I cannot say enough about the great job he did when performing my breast reconstruction surgery following the mastectomy. Dr. Liang worked closely with the general surgeon and the oncologist before and during the mastectomy. I had several post-op follow-ups with him to optimize my care and to manage any issues that arose. He was very particular and thorough in order to achieve the desired outcome. The final results were almost indistinguishable from my natural breast. Dr. Liang and his staff were very sensitive to the situation I was in following my cancer diagnosis and, his warm and caring manner was a blessing during the whole ordeal. Thank you, Dr. Liang!

Getting a Breast Augmentation was something that I have always wanted to do. Being in the foster care system taught me to be an independent woman, and as a part of that, I sought out to fix something about myself I was never truly comfortable with. It didn’t take long to find the perfect match for me. Once I found my team, I didn’t think twice. To Rachel the “Bra Fitter”, thank you for always making me feel comfortable during those awkward times of the fittings, and ensuring me that I was always in good hands. If they had a sales position for your job, you would be the best, and your communication was unparalleled. To Dr. Burrell the “Mastermind”, thank you for helping me trust doctors again. I trusted you implicitly with every direction that we took. You are so skilled in what you do and the passion you have for your job shows in every conversation we had. To Krishna the “Sweetest Receptionist”, thank you for welcoming me with open arms. I have had so many horrible interactions when it came to doctors’ offices, and your awesome smile made me feel like home. I never knew offices like yours could be so welcoming. Though you are the first face everyone sees when you walk in, I am honored that you took so much time out of your day to check in on me. To Olga the “Unbelievable Recovery Nurse”, thank you for walking me through my day-of procedures and what to expect. You handled my fear of needles like a champ, and I know I am not easy to deal with when it comes to “the poke”. I was so nervous before, but your calming bedside manner made me feel as though I was talking to my very own best friend. To Dr. Patel the “Vein Champagne Supplier”, thank you for being by my side. You knew exactly what to say to keep me calm. Our pre-operation call was like speaking to someone’s mother. You walked me through everything step by step and knowing you were by my side during the surgery made it all the more easy! To Chelsea the “Nurse with the biggest smile”, thank you for keeping my emotions high. Your demeanor made me feel so comfortable! Last but not least, to Cara the “Raddest Nurse”. How could you forget a girl like her? She was amazing. From the moment she walked in the room, I knew I was in good hands. You were so gentle, and I could tell you cared. It’s often easy to forget about all the people that made this happen, and if I did, I apologize-must be the drugs!  I am beyond thrilled with everything so far, and even more, I am so happy to have been surrounded by such amazing people throughout this journey. If you are looking for a place to go, this is the absolute best choice in the South Bay! -Madison Lucci

Ni Jui Liang, MD performed surgery to remove cancer in my arm. From the first visit until the last Dr. Liang and the staff at South Bay Plastic Surgery were amazing. Not only are they incredibly nice and courteous but Dr. Liang is a miracle worker! When my surgery was done I had many stitches and expected to have a horrible scar. To make things even more difficult he had to work on an area where my wife's name was tattooed. Somehow he was able to remove the cancer sew my arm back and you can't even see a scar!!! Thank you so much for your amazing skills and your great bedside manner. I would highly recommend them to everyone. And my wife is so happy that her name is still boldly emblazoned on my arm and in my heart. Thank you again Dr. Liang and South Bay Plastic Surgery Charlie Woods

After my mastectomy in 2014, Dr. Spenler performed my reconstruction surgeries (insertion of expander then later replacement with implant). I cannot speak more highly of him. Dr. Spenler is an excellent surgeon and a caring person. The office runs very efficiently and all the personnel there helped me navigate my way through the whole experience. I am so happy that 4 1/2 years ago, I chose South Bay Plastic Surgeons to be a part of my journey through breast cancer/reconstruction.

Life can throw some zingers. At 60 I got the news of breast cancer. Modern medicine and superb medical professionals got me through two lumpectomies and radiation treatment without missing a beat with our retirement travels. Then at 68 I got the news that I had breast cancer again. This time I elected to have a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction. I had a surgeon for the mastectomy in mind but did not have a clue as to who to go to for the reconstruction. Dr Whitney Burrell came highly recommended by my surgeon. My oncologist was happy with my selection and put me in their caring hands. Dr Burrell is down-to-earth and no-nonsense – an approach that resonates well with me. I looked forward to my weekly visits during reconstruction. Her sunny personality brightened my day. I am now finished and very happy with the results. It is important to find a team of doctors that you feel comfortable with and believe in and that work well together as doctors. I believe it made my recovery so much easier. I highly recommend Dr Whitney Burrell for breast reconstruction surgery. She is a highly skilled and caring plastic surgeon. I also commend the support team Dr Burrell works with at South Bay Plastic Surgeons. They are well trained professionals. The staff works out of a suite of rooms that are nicely appointed, simple, clean, and efficiently organized. My office visits were very pleasant and comfortable as well as timely.

Lou at South Bay Plastic Surgeons made me feel so much better about myself. I have hated, the lines around my mouth, jawls (as I call them) and the lines at the top of my head. It's bothered me for years but I finally did something about it. She used fillers, and Botox to take away the aging I was feeling. I was just around several friends at a party and they said I looked so rested and younger looking, what was my secret??? The greatest thing is no one suspected I had Botox or fillers done. That's what made me so happy. I never wanted people thinking of me ......"OMG what did that lady do to her face". This was so natural looking, nothing drastic so my friends just thought I was taking better care of my skin. I can't thank Lou and the team at South Bay Plastic Surgeons for making me feel younger!

My experience with Dr. Michael Newman and the entire staff at South Bay Plastic Surgeons has been phenomenal from the first visit through my post op appointments! My journey began with a consult visit with Dr. Newman and Yvette, his Patient Care Coordinator. Dr. Newman asked several questions to understand my decision to have breast augmentation surgery and shared detailed information I needed to make the best decision for my body type and size preference. When he exited the fun began with Yvette providing me with a bra so we could determine my desired implant size, then on to 3D simulation imaging so I could somewhat envision the size I selected. Yvette was delightful, humorous, and answered all my questions without hesitation offering her opinion only if I asked. I even received a complimentary SBPS t-shirt...thanks guys! At the surgical center, Dr. Newman's bedside manner was gentle, encouraging, confident and very professional; consistent characteristics I've recognized throughout my pre and post op visits with him. And by the way, my surgery was a huge success, recovery uneventful, and my desired results achieved 100%!! Overall, I can't say enough positive comments about SBPS from the front office, medical assistants, patient coordinators, to my surgeon Dr. Newman. My surgery was in July and I continue to have the same positive experience with each post op visit. Thanks to each of you for making my very serious and personal decision to have breast augmentation surgery one of the best decisions I've ever made!

This was definitely as good as it gets. Before I went to SBPS I did a bunch of research on who and where I wanted to get my breast augmentation done by, I also work in a hospital and every person I came across gave me Dr. Newman's name to go and get a consultation with him and so I did. It was the best choice i could of made. He was absolutely amazing in every way, he was extremely helpful and made me feel comfortable every time I saw him. I was a B cup before going into surgery we agreed on a mutual size and put in 475cc, I went in feeling extremely comfortable with the size and came out of the surgery feeling even more confident then before. I have always been an athlete and my weight fluctuates pretty often so I had a little asymmetry going into the surgery and the implants completely fixed it for me. I would recommend Dr. Newman to anyone and everyone because he truly is the best at what he does, he looks for the best interest of the patients health and well being and will give you nothing but honest opinions and help you along your beauty makeover. I hope many of you find this as helpful in your decision.

Dr. Newman was my fifth and final consult for a breast augmentation. When I met him, I knew he was someone who was trustworthy, knowledgeable, honest, and competent. He's got extensive training with doctors who've innovated breast augmentation surgery. I've gone to four doctors in Beverly Hills and they do not hold up to Dr. Newman's professionalism. His pricing is very competitive and there's a lot of options regarding where you can get your procedure done. His staff is wonderful and registration was an easy process. There's no tricks, no gimmicks. What he says is what you really can expect. I've had some apprehension with other doctors I've seen but Dr. Newman made me feel so much at ease. I'm so excited to schedule my surgery!

I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had opted for a double mastectomy. I was given the name of Dr. Newman for reconstructive surgery. I was frightened, and worried. I wasn't sure what to expect or what was entailed. Upon arrival at his office, I was greeted with a warm smile, his office is soothing and I found Dr. Newman to be calm and compassionate. Dr. Newman did the reconstruction, and follow up surgeries. Still unsure of the outcome, I was a bit wary. Treatment of breast cancer can be a long process. Over the course of time, and many office visits, I was always greeted with a warm smile, and always kindness from his staff. Dr. Newman never made me feel rushed or in a hurry. Every step of the process was explained in detail. I was quite surprised how natural my results were. I feel great, I thought I would feel self conscience about my appearance, and was worried about scarring. I have very minimal scars and am so grateful for my outcome. I feel so blessed to have come through this whole process without fear, and I have Dr. Newman and his staff to thank for my easy journey.

What does Liposuction 360 include?

Lipo 360 involves liposuction of the entire trunk area, including the abdomen, back, and flanks. We perform Lipo 360 frequently because it gives our surgeons greater control of our patients’ results and allows us to sculpt the entire midsection. This comprehensive approach to contouring the body allows us to create a shapely, trim silhouette when viewed at any angle.

Good to Know

Liposuction is not a weight loss method. While patients may lose a few pounds, liposuction is performed to remove specific areas of fat and not for overall weight loss.

Fat cells cannot grow back after liposuction. Treated areas will remain slim indefinitely as long as you continue to exercise and eat right.

Liposuction will not prevent you from gaining weight. Although your trouble spots are not likely to return, you will gain weight in other areas unless you keep up a healthy lifestyle.
Scars are possible with liposuction. Incisions are tiny and placed where the resulting scars are discreet, such as in natural creases.

Can I combine other procedures with liposuction?

People considering liposuction often choose to combine it with another procedure, such as a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, or a mommy makeover. If you are considering combining procedures, your surgeon can talk with you about the benefits, including having to plan for only one recovery period.

If you have a smaller area of unwanted fat such as a double chin or if you’d prefer a liposuction alternative with minimal downtime, CoolSculpting® may be a better match for you. KYBELLA® treatments are an injectable option for getting rid of submental fat (a double chin).

Liposuction After Weight Loss

People who have lost weight — small or large amounts — may find that their new body shapes are not in perfect proportion. Certain areas of the body, such as the stomach or thighs, are genetically predisposed to hold onto isolated pockets of fat. Unfortunately, exercising usually doesn’t affect this stubborn fat either. Our surgeons often perform liposuction as part of post weight loss plastic surgery to help balance body proportions. By focusing on your individual problem areas, liposuction can give you the physique you want, despite genetics or stubborn problem areas.

Your Liposuction Procedure

Our surgeons perform liposuction as an outpatient procedure using general anesthetic or local anesthetic with sedation. The unwanted fat is injected with a large volume of tumescent solution that contains saline, lidocaine, and adrenaline to make the areas firm and numb and to inhibit bleeding. The surgeon then inserts a narrow, metal tube called a cannula through small incisions and carefully sculpts the area by vacuuming out the fat. Once fat removal is complete, your surgeon closes the tiny incisions with surgical tape or sutures. The anesthetic contained in the tumescent solution relieves pain for about 12 to 24 hours after surgery.

VASERlipo®


In order to get the best results, our surgeons often use VASERlipo to make fat removal easier and gentler than traditional liposuction alone. VASERlipo is different because it uses ultrasonic energy to break up fatty tissue, which is gentler than having a surgeon loosen fat by vigorously moving a cannula.

VASERlipo targets fatty tissue without damaging surrounding blood vessels and connective tissue, producing excellent results, and minimizing the healing time. The procedure is similar to traditional liposuction, beginning with the injection of tumescent fluid that helps numb the treatment area and reduces bleeding and bruising. The surgeon then inserts a small probe that transmits the ultrasonic energy, liquefying the fat. The liquefied fat is gently suctioned from the body.

Is VASERlipo better than regular lipo?

VASERlipo can be used effectively on virtually any area of the body or face, including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, back, calves, chin, and both male and female breasts. The benefits of the technique include:

  • Faster recovery than traditional liposuction
  • Gentler than manual liposuction
  • Removes large amounts of fat
  • Can be used to treat large areas on the body or areas that require more precise treatment

Additionally, fat removed using VASERlipo is better-suited for fat transfer procedures, such as a Brazilian butt lift, which involve re-injecting a patient’s fat to enhance other areas of the body or face. VASERlipo’s gentle process increases the number of fat cells that survive the transfer process.

In addition to VASERlipo, we also perform and SAFElipo® on some patients. Our skilled team of surgeons can help you determine the best method for you based on your unique concerns and goals.

How long is the recovery for liposuction?

Recovery after liposuction is typically quick, but it depends on which areas are treated, the number of treatment areas, and the amount of fat removed. Initially, you may have mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising. The bruising fades within about a week. Swelling and soreness dissipate gradually over several weeks. You need to wear a compression garment for several weeks to minimize swelling and help your results look smooth and firm. Most patients are ready to return to work within about a week and resume strenuous activities in about 3 to 4 weeks.
