When the body has accumulated fatty deposits, it can be almost impossible to reduce these areas with diet and exercise. You have a specific number of fat cells; they shrink and grow with dieting. Our liposuction in Bellevue surgery is an alternative that can produce impressive results, as the fat cells are extracted, reducing in number. 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.


Who is a candidate for Liposuction?

If you have excess subcutaneous fat which is resistant to diet and exercise.

If your skin is elastic and is not going to become loose after liposuction.

If you wish to change the contour of your body. Commonly involved areas are the underside of the chin, upper arms, male chest/breasts, trunk, abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, and inner knees.

Most Seattle liposuction patients are near normal weight and desire permanent contour changes to enhance body contour and create a more appealing look.

Improved liposuction techniques now allow larger amounts of fat removal. Occasionally, heavier persons can benefit from liposuction.


Intended Results

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

Benefits of a Liposuction Procedure

  • Liposuction 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:

  • The 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 a super wet technique of infiltration of the solution before your 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, 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 done with meticulous care for different tissue and fat layers.
  • The fat is extracted through the cannula and discarded. Once the procedure is complete, the small incisions are closed with sutures.

Recovery from Liposuction:

  • The Bellevue liposuction patient goes 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 or soreness decrease, it is frequently 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 result takes shape over 2-3 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, eliminating 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, our CoolSculpting in Seattle procedure, which is a non-invasive fat reduction system. Dr. Egrari will evaluate your current condition and advise you 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 will bring them to you when we feel that there is scientific merit behind them. Stay tuned…
