What is Liposuction?
Despite how much you watch what you eat and exercise, you may still have pockets of fat that prevent you from feeling confident in yourself. Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery offers the latest methods to help effectively remove fat from areas of concern on the body. Surgical liposuction is a body contouring procedure that reduces fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttocks to produce a more contoured appearance. This fat removal surgery, performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin, can be blended to treat several body parts. When we see you for your consultation in our Brea or Beverly Hills, CA office, we will examine areas of your body you wish to address so we can help you reach your cosmetic surgery goals. We strive to help you look and feel your absolute best!
"I chose to come back to Dr. Corbin after my first implant surgery with him in 2003. Much to my suprise Dee was still here and just as sweet and helpful as she was 16 years ago. This time I was opting for not only new implants but needed a pocket revision and chose to get liposuction and RFAL (a 50th birthday present to me). On the day of surgery the medical staff at the surgery center was first class!!! My anesthesiologist listened to me and even provided patches for nausea during surgery, I woke up calm and never once got sick! Dr. Corbin is an artist and highly skilled. I am thrilled with my results and know that I will be back again!!"- T.O. / Google / May 04, 2019

"Best Liposuction Results ever...Thank You Dr Corbin, Dee, Alice, Mewzette and Laura."- Anonymous / ZocDoc / Feb 03, 2018
"Went for the Implants the Second Time Around! - I had a tummy tuck and breast lift with Dr. Corbin in 2011. At that time, I decided not to have implants, just the lift. My boobs were so flat and empty from breastfeeding that I was so surprised with the outcome. Dr. Corbin, did a great job getting them back where they belonged. Although they sat higher, I never really had the upper pole fullness that I desired. Years later, I had another baby. Needless to say, after nursing again, I needed another tune up! This time, I went for the implants and only liposuction of the abdomen and back. It seems that with every child, some of us, need help bouncing back. Just had my 1st appointment after surgery today and I was excited to see how nice my boobs look! They're still swollen, but definitely have the upper pole fullness that I couldn't get with a lift alone. They're perky! (Even though my doctor hates that word) lol. I would say just the perkiness and fullness that I was looking for.Here's a picture with the bandages still on. Only 7 days after the procedure. I also found an old pic of my first procedure- sorry for the bad quality. Thank you Dr. Corbin! You and your staff treated me amazingly- from the receptionist, to Dee & Alice- your schedulers, to the amazing nurse- Debbie & your Physician Assistant - everyone was amazing.. Calm, Kind, and professional. Definitely a second best experience, just like the first! Love your work and Staff Dr. Corbin! 5 stars! ??"- W. / RealSelf / Jun 27, 2017
"About to go in - it has been a great process thus far - I received my consultation 2 weeks ago and I have my surgery scheduled for Thursday. It has been a great process thus far. I am having an abdominoplasty, and liposuction in my arms. I wanted liposuction in my thighs but it was not suggested at this time."- L. / RealSelf / Feb 08, 2021
Can Liposuction Benefit Me?
Liposuction can be a great treatment for men and women who are at a healthy weight but have troublesome areas of fat that don't respond to even the most healthy lifestyle. People contemplating liposuction should have skin that is already taut because liposuction does not treat loose skin. It's also important to realize that liposuction is not a solution for weight loss. Women undergoing liposuction should be past childbearing as pregnancy could compromise the results. At the time of your consultation for surgery, Dr. Corbin will discuss realistic expectations.
Our Liposuction Technique
This treatment is completed in an outpatient setting using general anesthesia. A very small incision is made in the skin and a cannula will be inserted. A cannula is a special tool that makes it easier to work loosen the fatty tissue for removal. After the chosen amount of fat has been taken out, Dr. Frederic Corbin will seal the small incision. Based on the number of sections treated, your procedure could take around 1 – 3 hours. In a separate recovery area, your post-op nurse will help manage your pain and care for your incisions until you are discharged.
Recovery After Liposuction
You may need to stay at home for recovery from lipo for around 1 – 3 weeks, depending on the number of areas treated and the amount of fat removed. It's typical to experience swelling and bruising for about 1 – 2 weeks, and we can typically remove your sutures about 7 – 10 days after your procedure. What is most important after having lipo surgery is that you allow your body time to heal and recover. When you're ready to return to work, you should do your best to take it easy. To increase your strength and stamina, stick to short walks and light workouts as advised by Dr. Corbin. Remember that you may see some improvements soon after your surgery, but it will take around 6 – 10 months until your new body shape is complete.
