Liposculpture can be used (in both men and women) to reshape such areas as the neck, arms, breasts, abdomen, buttocks, and as well, thighs, hips, knees and calves.
It is important to note, however, that liposuction should not be considered a substitute for proper diet and exercise nor as a cure for obesity. It is specifically designed to remove localized fat deposits from a person who is generally within normal range of his/her ideal weight. It should also not be considered a treatment for skin dimpling, otherwise known as cellulite.
The best candidates are patients that are close to their ideal weight (usually no more that 10-15 lbs.) but have very localized fat deposits that no diet or exercise can correct.
The surgery is performed usually under local anesthesia in our private surgical clinic. It usually takes about 1 to 2 hours to complete depending on the areas to be done and the patient can have his or her discharge about one hour after the end of the surgery, following a stay in the recovery room.
“Two years ago I decided to have breast augmentation and a full rhinoplasty. I went to see Dr. Papanastasiou and felt immediately comfortable with him and his staff and confident that he was the best doctor to do the work. It turns out that I needed a revision (to correct minor issues) for both surgeries (breasts and nose) and I was met with understanding and openness. Dr. Papanastasiou and his staff were very accommodating and compassionate! There were no hassles or arguments regarding the need for the revisions and this was very reassuring! I’m extremely pleased with the results of both surgeries and I’m grateful to have been in Dr. Papanastasiou’s care ☺️”
“About 4 weeks ago I had lower eye surgery for bags and wrinkles. I was initially a little nervous about the procedure but after speaking with him he made me feel at ease and I felt this was the right decision for me. The procedure took about 1 hour and I was back at work 1 week later with just some minor bruising on my cheeks. I was very impressed with Dr. Papanastasiou. He was very professional and I am extremely satisfied with the results. After the procedure he also called me that night to see how I was doing. I was extremely impressed. I would have no problem seeing him again for any procedure and would easily recommend him. Thank you again Dr. Papanastasiou”
