The hands behind the procedure and the type of liposuction system used make a difference in the final outcome. You want to achieve a trimmer, more fit body profile — and Dr. Egrari is known for achieving dramatic improvements for his patients. Dr. Egrari uses variety of innovative techniques including the suction assisted lipectomy (SAL).  This innovative technique has been described by a leading pioneer in body contouring has been shown to reduce the dimpling and irregularity that comes with conventional liposuction. Also, in proper candidates, Dr. Egrari will recommend hi-definition liposuction. This procedure addresses the circumferential truncal areas and provides an athletic figure with all the dimensional and architectural features of a finely-tuned body. 

Who is a Candidate for Liposuction?

  • If you have excess subcutaneous fat which is resistant to diet and exercise.
  • If your skin is elastic enough so that it won’t become loose after liposuction.
  • If you wish to change the contour of your body (underside of the chin, upper arms, male chest/breasts, trunk, abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, or inner knees).

Most Bellevue liposuction patients are near normal weight and desire permanent contour changes to enhance body contour and create a more appealing look. Improved Seattle liposuction techniques now allow larger amounts of fat removal. Occasionally, heavier persons can benefit from liposuction.


Intended Liposuction Results

  • To achieve a permanent improvement in the contour and proportion of the treated areas
  • To achieve a more flattering figure or physique, whether in or out of clothing
  • To bring back the silhouette that you have lost due to age, pregnancy, or weight gain
  • To reduce pockets of stubborn fat that have been impossible to eliminate with diet and exercise alone
  • To boost self-confidence by reducing unsightly fat deposits on the buttocks, thighs, flanks, abdomen, or other areas of the body

Benefits Of A Liposuction Procedure

Our liposuction in Seattle is very versatile, as the device allows for fat removal of almost any area of the body. The length of the cannula tube allows for larger areas of fat removal without additional incisions. The cannula tube only requires an incision large enough for the extraction tube to be placed, and these small incisions heal more easily. These tiny incisions are placed in carefully chosen areas of the body to minimize the risk of producing visible scars.

Description Of A Liposuction Procedure

This procedure is an outpatient operation. Although local anesthesia may be used, general anesthesia is used most often for patient comfort. We utilize the latest surgical techniques and technology for improved patient comfort and safety during the procedure and during the healing process.

To produce this effect, we use the “super wet” technique of infiltration of the solution before liposuction, which is considered to be the safest and most effective method. Dr. Egrari uses a power-assisted liposuction device by MicroAire®. This machine etches the desired areas with less trauma and higher accuracy.

At this point in time, the MicroAire device is considered the gold standard in liposuction technology and extracts more unwanted fat than many other devices, providing a smoother result and increasing the procedure’s effectiveness. The instrument is inserted through very small incisions placed in inconspicuous locations near the fat deposits, and excess fat is removed. This is done with the smallest diameter cannula and is performed with meticulous care for different tissue and fat layers. The fat is extracted through the cannula and discarded. Once your liposuction in Bellevue is complete, the small incisions are closed with sutures.

Recovery From Liposuction

 Patients undergoing liposuction in Seattle will go home with a compression garment covering the treated area.

Compression is advised for about a month, as it reduces swelling and achieves final results more quickly.

Once pain and soreness decrease, you may find it more comfortable to wear Lycra® or Spandex® exercise pants. Bruising and swelling usually subside in one week, and you will begin to see the more attractive body contour with the fatty deposits greatly reduced.

The final results take shape over two to three months as your body heals and swelling subsides. We carefully monitor your progress in follow-up appointments at our Bellevue plastic surgery center. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral pain medication.

Other Treatments In Conjunction With Liposuction:

Additional procedures that may enhance results include a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast reduction, breast lift, and breast augmentation. In fact, combining liposuction with other procedures in healthy patients makes sense, as it eliminates the need for multiple plastic surgery procedures performed in separate surgical appointments.

Combining procedures reduces time off work and overall recovery time, and can help you attain an enhanced, sculpted, and more attractive look in less time. Many patients may be candidates for an alternative treatment such as our CoolSculpting® in Seattle procedure, which is a non-invasive fat reduction system. Dr. Egrari will evaluate your current condition and advise you on which procedure will be most appropriate for you.

Liposuction continues to be at the forefront of research in plastic surgery. Today there are many claims about “smart” machines and “laser” machines. There has been no substantiated prospective trial that has indicated that any of these procedures are better than the current state-of-the-art conventional liposuction that we use. We are constantly looking for better experiences, and we will bring them to you when we feel that there is scientific merit behind them. Liposuction continues to be a procedure that is offered by chain-type practices across our nation. These are often done by unqualified providers who do not have proper training in the art and science of body contouring. Unfortunately, because of this, we see outcomes that are poorly done and difficult to correct. We want to be a resource for you. Be discriminating.

Liposuction needs to be done on a proper candidate; that is, a person who has the skin elasticity that will respond well to this procedure. Dr. Egrari will evaluate you and be very honest if he doesn’t believe you’ll benefit from this operation. Liposuction is not for everyone.
