Liposuction & Hi-Def LipoSculpting in Winnipeg, MB

Liposuction is one of the most popular Body Contouring procedures that successfully removes stubborn fat from specific areas of your body.

The most common treatment areas are the tummy, love handles, buttocks, thighs, arms, and back.

Liposuction is often combined with other aesthetic procedures to enhance results; the most common ones are Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation, Brazilian Butt Lift, and Breast Lift/Reduction.

The advantage of Liposuction is your stubborn fat cells are removed in one treatment, and all of the fat cells removed at the time of your surgery are gone forever.

Liposuction is a procedure that is performed under general anesthetic and can take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours.

How is Liposuction Performed?

Liposuction is performed to define, sculpt and re-define your body contour by removing unwanted fat from your body. Liposuction is a popular procedure for women and men who want to sculpt and define specific areas of their body and take their fitness results to the next level. This procedure is performed through the use of small incisions made in inconspicuous or “hidden” areas on your body. A small thin cannula is then used to suction the unwanted fat.

  • Liposuction creates a more balanced silhouette and appearance.
  • Ideal candidates are those in good medical health who maintain a healthy/active lifestyle with hard to lose body fat in specific locations.
  • Liposuction is not a weight loss technique.
  • Liposuction will only tighten your skin by 10%, therefore those with moderate or excess loose skin or numerous stretch marks (Striae) may not be good candidates.
  • Liposuction surgery is performed under either local anesthetic with IV sedation or general anesthetic in 1-4 hours depending on the areas treated.
  • BodyTite a radio-frequency energy device by Inmode, can also be performed at the same time as liposuction to help tighten the skin a further 30-35% for those with mild skin laxity and therefore avoid loose skin after liposuction.
  • LipoSculpting (Hi-Def Lipo) can take this even further by sculpting and enhancing your muscle definition and take your fitness results to the next level.

Areas Treated Include but are not limited to: Abdomen, Love handles, Back, Chest, Thighs, Hips, Calves, and Buttocks

Results are generally seen 3 to 6 months after surgery as there can be some swelling in the treated areas immediately after surgery. Optimal results occur when a healthy lifestyle is maintained and weight is maintained. Weight gain may alter the results. Your liposuction surgery will be custom tailored to your unique needs, individual results may vary.

Your procedure will take place at Dr. Avi Islur’s state of the art cosmetic surgery centre, The First Glance Aesthetic Clinic & Surgery Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

What Makes Liposuction with Dr. Islur Different?

Expertise and having the right technology are the two most important factors to consider when seeking out a Liposuction surgeon.

Liposuction is probably the single operative procedure taught to plastic surgeons that has the highest learning curve to provide patients with reproducible, high-quality outcomes with a low risk of contour irregularities. As the only surgical center in Manitoba and the Prairies that offers Power-assisted SAFE Liposuction and BodyTite/FaceTite, Dr. Avi Islur is highly trained and qualified to provide you with the results you desire.

Along with the technology, Dr. Avi Islur has gained additional training in Hi-Definition Liposuction – a procedure where etching and increased definition of the muscle shadows and edges is performed for those individuals looking for a leaner “cut” look.

Additional Procedures

Liposuction is commonly performed with other cosmetic procedures such as Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation, Brazilian Butt Lift, Mommy Makeover, and Body Contouring after Weight Loss procedures.

What Areas the Can be Treated with Liposuction?

Thanks to all the different Liposuction techniques, virtually any area of the body can be treated. From the neck all the way down to the calves, Liposuction helps to sculpt, contour, and add more definition.

Who is a Proper Candidate for Liposuction?

It is essential to realize that Liposuction is not a short-cut for weight loss. Healthy eating and exercise are still very important to incorporate into your lifestyle. The goal of Liposuction is not to lose weight, but to improve the body’s shape. Liposuction is not an effective treatment for cellulite and is should not be in areas with saggy, loose, or wrinkled skin.

You need to be in good health, at a stable weight and have specific realistic goals for the improvement of your contour.

I’ve Heard You Can Put on Fat in Weird Locations after Liposuction if you Gain Weight?

Although we recommend having liposuction when you have obtained your goal weight, let’s face it – weight fluctuations do occur. Unlike diet and exercise which results in shrinking of the fat cells (not removal), liposuction physically removes the fat cells from the body thereby decreasing the fat cells in the locations treated. This means that if weight gain does occur, the amount of weight gain required to see changes in these locations is substantially more than that required in other areas not treated.

Therefore, you don’t put on weight in weird locations, it’s just that you typically didn’t notice weight gain in those areas as it was masked by the areas above or below it that were likely treated with liposuction.

What Happens to Fat from Liposuction and is it Different than Weight Loss from Exercise or Diet?

There are only a few ways to reduce the number/volume of fat cells in your body – liposuction (physical removal of fat) or lipolysis (rupture of the fat cells) from cold (CoolSculpting) or heat. Unlike diet and exercise which results in shrinking of the size of the fat cells (not removal),  liposuction physically removes the fat cells from the body thereby decreasing the fat cells in the locations treated. The number of fat cells in this area does not come back but they can increase in size.

What is the Most Amount of Fat I Can Have Removed?

5 litres of fat is the most we can remove in a single out-patient day surgery operation. This is due to the significant changes in the way in which your body handles the excess fluid that is added and generated after liposuction. This occurs for a few days after liposuction. Further liposuction can be performed in the future.

Who is a Good Candidate for Hi-Def Liposuction?

Hi-Definition liposuction is best performed in those patients looking for a well-defined, cut look. In the operation, liposuction is performed along and between muscles in order to etch and define the shadows and valleys that naturally occur between muscles.  Most patients will be fit and have a good workout regimen consisting of both strength training and cardio with a body fat percentage of less than 10-15%. After surgery, it is imperative for these patients to wear a compression garment and the surgical foam provided for 6 weeks, undergo lymphatic massage for several weeks and continue working out to obtain the best possible outcome.

What is Recovery Like After Liposuction?

After Liposuction, you can expect to be swollen, bruised, and have some discomfort in the areas treated.

Although an immediate improvement in contour will be visualized, the final result will generally be seen at 6 months after the majority of the swelling has resolved.

You will be given a compression garment to wear after surgery. Compression is generally recommended for 3-6 weeks after surgery. To further enhance you your outcome, Dr. Avi Islur will generally recommend having lymphatic and deep tissue massage to the areas treated starting soon after surgery and continued weekly for several weeks. The First Glance Clinic works closely with several massage therapists and can make recommendations for therapists for you to see.

You can return to work and daily activities generally 4 to 7 days after your procedure. Return to work will vary based on the areas treated. Strenuous activity, heavy lifting, and vigorous exercise should be avoided for 2 to 3 weeks.
