Contour and Target Genetically Unwanted Fat

At Ambay Plastic Surgery, we have successfully treated patients who have tried diet and exercise and have not achieved their desired body silhouette. In addition to simple weight gain, the problem is that fat deposits genetically in predetermined locations. Our patients often say “when I gain weight it goes to my thighs, like my mother”. Or “I have my fathers neck”. This fat is stubborn and because it is genetic, and it is the last to go when trying diet or exercise. Liposuction is phenomenal because we can target and remove genetically unwanted, stubborn fat while contouring the rest of your body silhouette.

If you live in the Tampa area, contact our Wesley Chapel office at 813.535.4769 to see how we can help you get rid of stubborn genetic fat, improve your overall body contours and regain your confidence.

How is Liposuction Performed?

Liposuction works by suctioning out the excess fat cells from the targeted treatment area and then blending that to improve the body’s silhouette. It is minimally invasive, and based on your individual preferences, it can be performed awake, in a twilight sleep or under general anesthesia in our onsite, state-of-the-art surgery center.

What can liposuction do for you?

  • Flattening the Abdomen or hanging pouch
  • Making the waist smaller
  • Smoothening the Hips
  • Slimming the Inner and outer thighs
  • Defining the Knees
  • Tightening the Upper arms
  • Getting rid of male breast (Gynecomastia)
  • Eliminating bra rolls
  • Creating definition in the chin or jowls

Best Candidate for Liposuction

Generally speaking, the ideal candidates for liposuction in the Tampa area are the following:

  • Adults who are committed to improving their overall health and well-being.
  • Body weight is within 30% of their ideal weight.
  • Good skin quality that has some thickness and elasticity.
  • Healthy individuals who do not have life-threatening medical conditions or illnesses.
  • Patients with an optimistic, and realistic, outlook and specific body contouring goals.
  • Non-smokers.

What to Expect from Recovery

Removal of fat from liposuction can cause pain and discomfort that is well managed with pain medication for a few days. Swelling, bruising and numbness of the skin are also common and subside gradually over the first week.

Dr. Ambay will place a compression garment which will be worn for 6 weeks to help with swelling and to guide the shape of the body as it takes on its new silhouette. In very rare circumstances, temporary drains are placed for 3-5 days to remove excess fluid that can cause an infection. Your safety is our #1 concern.

It is important to follow Dr. Ambay’s instructions which are discussed at the initial consultation, at the pre-operative appointment and after surgery. In addition, we offer evening, weekend and holiday access by email to help answer your questions in a timely fashion. At Ambay Plastic Surgery, we are committed to your success!
