Liposuction

Fat cells seem to have a mind of their own. They settle wherever they please without any consideration for where you want them to be. Many people we see considering liposuction in Louisiana are frustrated, saying, "I work out and eat healthy, but I still have this problem area."

Whether it's a little extra padding around the waist, thighs, arms or neck, liposuction can remove fat cells from a specific area of your body. Take advantage of the new, effective technique created by Dr. Simeon Wall Jr.: SAFELipo®. This unique liposuction process provides smooth, even, and dramatic results, usually with little to no bruising. In contrast to traditional liposuction, SAFELipo can produce significant skin retraction in most patients.

To get started with your liposuction procedure, request a consultation at The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery or call our office at (318) 562-1433. Conveniently located in Shreveport, we serve patients from Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas, and offer a complete array of cosmetic surgery and skin care treatments through Jade MediSpa.

Case 144: SAFELipo™

This 57 year old woman underwent liposuction of her thighs along with a tummy tuck and liposuction of her trunk.

Case 212: SAFELipo™

This 52-year-old male is shown 6 months after having SAFELipo™ of the circumferential trunk and chest. His muscular frame has a much better shape, with higher definition of his underlying anatomy, including his "six-pack" abdominal muscles and latissimus muscles. The sculpting of his chest and underarm areas with SAFELipo dramatically improved their shape and augmented the muscularity of his pectoral muscles. It also eliminated the flabby appearance of his chest overall. Notice that the high-contrast photography shows every small detail of the contour of his skin, which appears natural, smooth, even and healthy – the hallmark of SAFELipo, a body contouring procedure developed by Louisiana plastic surgeon Dr. Simeon Wall Jr.

Case 213: SAFELipo™

This active, 40-year-old woman had persistent areas of excess fat in the upper arms, axillas (armpits) and shoulders despite exercising and dieting. Bothersome, genetically predetermined areas such as these, which are frequently seen on the arms, inner thighs and waist, can be effectively treated with SAFELipo™, usually without need for more extensive skin reduction procedures. This woman is shown 6 months after treatment of the circumferential arms, axillas and shoulders with SAFELipo. No skin needed removal, and she has no visible scars – something which was very important to her. The tremendous amount of skin retraction frequently seen with SAFELipo has made the need for brachioplasties (skin reduction of the arms) very rare in our plastic surgery practice in Louisiana.

Case 469: SAFELipo™

This is a good example of a patient who wanted to maximize the fullness of the upper part of the breast, with a very full and rounded upper half of the breasts, while still maintaining proper proportions with the rest of her body.  She also disliked the bulges of fat and breast tissue just in front of her armpits, so she received SAFELipo to her armpit area during her breast augmentation. In addition to removing the unsightly bulges, her armpit sweating is drastically reduced.  The patient is shown one year after surgery and is very happy with her results.Photos: After photos taken 1 year after surgeryIMPLANTS: Sientra High-Strength Gel 435cc Smooth Round High Profile 

Case 534: SAFELipo™

This mother of 3 states her reason for choosing to have plastic surgery was "removal of excess skin after losing over 100 pounds, increase my confidence, healthier lifestyle, and to look like I used to." She also stated that the reason she chose The Wall Center and her plastic surgeon was because "I read the reviews and talked to people and only heard and read wonderful things about Dr. Holly." During her consultation she discussed with Dr. Holly that she was focused on an improvement of her tummy area and excess fat around her waist, but realized that what she really wanted was a dramatic change to her entire trunk, circumferentially. She also wanted slimmer thighs. During Dr. Holly Wall’s examination of the patient, it was recommended that she undergo SAFELipo of the circumferential trunk incorporated with her comprehensive tummy tuck using a very low incision and beautifully recreated umbilicus, as well as SAFELipo to the thighs. When asked how the patient feels about her results, she reported "I LOVE IT!!! I am so much more confident. I can look in the mirror without crying. After you lose so much weight, the excess skin is so depressing. Dr. Holly gave me back my life! From day 1 the staff and Dr. Holly treated me with so much respect and love. They have seen me from start to finish and kept up with my progress. They make you feel like family, very special and individual, not like a client or patient or way to make money. Just genuine and celebrate with you in your new journey. I love them and tell everyone I meet what they did for me!" The Post Op pictures were taken 1 year after her surgery. Notice the overall improvements to her body including improved contour of her figure from pear shape to hourglass. Her proportional feminine shape will be a permanent change as long as she maintains a healthy lifestyle. DRESS SIZE BEFORE:  14    DRESS SIZE AFTER:  6 

Case 598: SAFELipo™

Brazilian Butt Lift using SafeLipo

Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

Who Needs It

While it may seem that liposuction is optimum for women and men who are overweight, it is actually most effective for people who are relatively fit but wish to reduce certain areas that are resistant to diet or exercise. Those who still have plenty of skin elasticity will see better results than those with thinner, looser skin. Liposuction can help accentuate your curves if you're having a breast enlargement or breast lift, and can complement other body procedures like a tummy tuck.

Preparing for Liposuction Surgery

In your initial consultation, you and your plastic surgeon will discuss your overall health and what you want to achieve through your liposuction procedure. You'll also discuss the body contouring method that's best for you, including SAFELipo®.

Liposuction for the Male Chest

Dr. Simeon Wall Jr. talks about how he often liposuctions fat from men's chests to give a more masculine look, as well as how he can use that fat to build up the upper portion for an enhanced pectoral appearance.

The Surgery

Liposuction in Shreveport, Louisiana, at The Wall Center will be performed at the practice's Ambulatory Surgical Center, and depending on the extent of the procedure, it will be performed either under local or general anesthesia. If it is performed under local anesthesia, you may request a sedative that will help keep you drowsy and insensitive to pain during the procedure.

Fat Grafting — Natural fullness right where you want it

Using fat transferred from another part of your body, fat grafting can add lasting, natural-looking shape and volume.

The incisions that are made to remove fat are usually no more than a quarter of an inch and are made in inconspicuous areas on the body. In SAFELipo, a special motorized cannula, or long tube, is inserted into each incision and the fat cells are separated from their attachments. The fat is then removed through a different, smaller cannula. The final step is performed with another specialized cannula that equalizes the remaining fat beneath the skin, for a smooth, even, and consistent result.

Although our plastic surgeons are experienced in performing a variety of liposuction techniques for Louisiana patients, such as standard and ultrasonic liposuction (UAL), they use Power-assisted SAFELipo due to its many advantages. Developed by Dr. Simeon Wall Jr., this revolutionary liposuction technique can dramatically change body shape more effectively than other forms of liposuction, safely and with minimal risk of contour deformities or other problems.

Results

Patient experiences vary after the SAFELipo procedure. In general, bruising is rare. Although the tiny incisions can take several weeks to months to fully heal and lighten, you should feel much more like yourself after only a few days. All swelling is usually resolved within the first few months, but patients can expect skin tightening to continue to improve for up to a year after surgery.

Regardless of how much fat is removed, results from SAFELipo are usually seen immediately, although experiences vary. Once swelling has subsided, improvement typically becomes even more apparent. To maintain your new look, it is important to keep your weight constant. Although some of the fat cells have been removed, the remaining fat cells have the ability to expand if your weight increases. Therefore, patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly to achieve and maintain their ideal weight both before and after liposuction, to allow their body contouring procedure to enhance the body's shape.
