If you have struggled with stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, liposuction surgery may be right for you. The best thing you can do is visit our Newport Beach office for a complimentary consultation. Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Agha, and his experienced staff, will be able to answer all of your questions and concerns. During your initial consultation, Dr. Siamak Agha will inquire about your general physical and mental health status, pre-existing health conditions, prior surgeries, your medications, allergies, and smoking habits.
Relevant questions include:
It is important that you be thorough when providing the requested information, as this will allow Dr. Agha to proactively address any medical concerns. When asked about medications, be sure to include any diet pills, vitamins, or herbal preparations since some vitamins and herbal medications can affect your blood pressure and clotting ability. Honesty regarding your smoking and alcohol use is also very important, as these will have a profound impact on your recovery period and your ability to heal.
After reviewing your medical history, Dr. Agha will discuss your concerns, priorities, and motivations for pursuing plastic surgery. Dr. Agha will then examine you and assess stubborn areas of fatty excess, the amount of excess fat, and your overall body contour and proportion. He will then evaluate your skin elasticity, quality, laxity, and signs of skin damage (such as stretch marks).
Dr. Agha will subsequently provide you with information on different options and will explain the advantages and disadvantages of the procedures to you. You will then be provided with information regarding the potential risks and complications. Finally, considering your input, Dr. Agha will plan an appropriate procedure to best suit your body as well as meet your desires and expectations. Depending on the amount of body contouring you may desire, Dr. Agha can discuss additional plastic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation or tummy tuck. Many patients prefer the option of having multiple procedures at one time. Dr. Agha can best discuss these surgical options at your body contouring consultation.
At the completion of your consultation, you will be given a written estimate of the costs of your liposuction procedure. At this time, you will also have the option to schedule your procedure. You are encouraged to bring your spouse, significant other, family member, or a friend to your consultation. Prior to surgery, you may be asked to obtain specific lab tests and a medical evaluation.
The cornerstone of Dr. Agha’s approach is to customize treatment to your specific needs and circumstances as well as to ensure that you have an excellent understanding of the procedure so that you are able to make an informed decision. This will help you achieve the appearance you desire with the least invasive procedure available. Do you have more questions about your eligibility for liposuction?
