If you are a patient considering liposuction surgery, then you are probably wondering what to expect from your liposuction results. While every patient is different, you will find that your results will be nothing short of life-changing. However, there are a few things you can do, as a patient, to get the best idea of what to expect from your liposuction results.
The first is choosing the right surgeon. A great way to evaluate a surgeon is by looking at their before and after photos, so you can see the plastic surgeon’s liposuction results first hand. Skilled, experienced plastic surgeons should provide before and after photos of their patients from every angle. Dr. Mowlavi provides before and after photos of his liposuction results on multiple websites including cpsi360.com and drlaguna.com and on social media platforms such as Instagram, Youtube and Facebook. Carefully looking at the front, oblique, lateral and back views can provide a 360 picture of the plastic surgeon’s skills and experience.
The second is understanding the liposuction procedure itself. Some liposuction techniques are better than others. High Definition VASER Liposuction has proven to be one of the most effective liposuction techniques. VASER liposuction allows for a comprehensive removal of both superficial and deep fat, resulting in 30-40% more fat being removed compared to traditional liposuction. This technique also utilizes a laser, which helps tighten surrounding tissue. Overall, VASER liposuction is effective at removing large amounts of fat while retaining tight skin around the tissue.
Understanding the liposuction procedure is important so you have realistic expectations of the surgery. Knowing the surgeon is important so you understand the surgeon’s capabilities with the liposuction technique. This is very important because it is the liposuction technique in the hands of the plastic surgeon that creates an amazing liposuction result.

There are a number of things to appreciate in abdominal liposuction before and after photos. Patients should keep their own cosmetic goals in mind when looking at photos of liposuction results because these can be excellent references when you have a consultation with the plastic surgeon. Patients should pay attention to narrowed waistlines, clear muscle highlights, defined muscle inscriptions and lines, smooth skin contour, perfect balance between fat removal and skin redundancy and clean incision lines. Poor liposuction results can often appear as deep ridges where smooth muscle lines and inscriptions should be, unclear or uneven muscle highlights, skin contour irregularities and redundant skin.
