The Body Contours You Want

Across the country and in Southern California cities such as Moorpark and Newbury Park, liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. While it is used to remove areas of unwanted body fat, liposuction should not be used as a weight loss method. Dr. Azar performs liposuction both as an individual procedure and in combination with other procedures, such as a facelift or a tummy tuck, to refine the results. Liposuction is effective for removing fat from most areas of the body, such as:

Using his refined skill and experience, Dr. Azar provides smooth, attractive results with traditional and tumescent liposuction. While laser and ultrasound liposuction enhancements might sound exciting, Dr. Azar depends on the time-tested forms of liposuction to provide beautiful results for patients who are at a healthy weight and have good skin elasticity. truSculpt™ is a non-surgical procedure that can enhance your results further or provide pleasing results on its own when you need just a little sculpting. If you're considering neck liposuction to reduce the appearance of a double chin and your skin retains most of its elasticity, you may be a good candidate for KYBELLA® injections. KYBELLA is a non-surgical treatment approved by the FDA to reduce fat below the chin.

Dr. Azar performs liposuction on an outpatient basis using a general anesthetic. The procedure can last 2 or more hours. Liposuction begins with a small incision in the treatment area. A thin, hollow tube called a cannula is inserted into the incision, and fat cells are vacuumed out and discarded. Once the area has healed, typically within 1 to 2 weeks, you should notice a smoother, tighter shape.

Tumescent Liposuction

Like traditional liposuction, tumescent liposuction is a surgical procedure to eliminate unwanted fat from your body's problem areas. However, tumescent liposuction – considered the safest type available – allows for removal of fat with very little blood loss.

Tumescent liposuction is conducted using a local – rather than a general – anesthetic, so it can be performed quickly and has a much shorter recovery period. Most patients return to work the next day and can resume exercise within 1 week. After your liposuction procedure, you should notice a more streamlined and sleeker physique.
