At Desired Beauty, with offices in the Beverly Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles and Bakersfield, California, Farzin Kerendian, DO, FACOS, FAACS, can reshape your body and smooth your curves with liposuction body-contouring treatments. To find out if you’re a candidate for liposuction, call Desired Beauty or book a consultation online today.


What is liposuction?

Liposuction, or body-contouring surgery, is a procedure that reshapes your body curves by physically removing fat. Even if you exercise religiously and eat a healthy, balanced diet, you might still have fat deposits that don’t go away despite your best efforts to lose them. With liposuction, you can remove them for good and enjoy a refined silhouette. 

Men and women most commonly target these areas of hard-to-lose fat with liposuction:

  • Neck
  • Breasts
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Saddlebags
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Calves
  • Ankles

Dr. Kerendian helps you identify specific, achievable goals for liposuction. You can remove fat from just one area or several of your choosing. 

During a liposuction procedure, Dr. Kerendian makes a small, discreet incision. He may give you several options for the technique he uses, but in general, liposuction involves loosening and suctioning out your fat cells to remove them. 

Am I a good candidate for liposuction?

Liposuction can give you a more attractive body with better proportions or help your clothes fit more comfortably. It’s known as one of the safest surgical cosmetic procedures available. Still, not everyone is a candidate for liposuction. After a review of your medical history and treatment expectations, Dr. Kerendian might decide that you’re a candidate for liposuction if you:

  • Are no more than 20 pounds overweight
  • Are at a stable weight
  • Are in good physical health
  • Have healthy skin with good elasticity
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle
  • Want to make the changes for your own preferences, not for someone else

If you’re not a candidate for liposuction for any reason, Dr. Kerendian can help guide you to another procedure that better suits your needs or tell you how you can become a candidate for liposuction at another time. 

What should I expect during the recovery period after liposuction?

After your liposuction operation at Desired Beauty, Dr. Kerendian may place tubes to drain fluids from the area because your incisions might leak for several days. He may also give you compression garments to wear as you heal for 1-2 months to control the swelling. 

While you don’t need to spend time in the hospital after liposuction, you shouldn’t go back to work until several days later. Every person recovers differently, but most people can continue life as normal within two weeks.

If you’re interested in reshaping your body with liposuction, call Desired Beauty or book your consultation online today.
