Tampa Liposuction is the process of removing unwanted fat from areas of the body where fat is known to accumulate — see below for a complete list broken down by gender. In short, if some part of your body insists on retaining its fat no matter how much weight you lose, liposuction may be the answer for you.
Those “lucky” people you see that have perfectly contoured bodies and look sleek and sexy from any angle? The chances are surprisingly good that they’ve been to see an expert like Dr. Azharian at some point.
As plastic surgery has advanced, techniques have been developed that allow modern cosmetic surgeons to act less like ‘doctors’ and more like ‘sculptors.’ The more experience a plastic surgeon has, the more likely he or she is to be able to create the exact body that you desire — and Dr. Azharian has years of experience using liposuction in Tampa and Wesley Chapel, both alone and in concert with other techniques, to give you the body you dream of.

Benefits of Tampa Liposuction
Liposuction in Tampa and Wesley Chapel is not performed for the purpose of weight loss — it’s performed to sculpt and contour areas of the body suffering from fat that will not respond to non-surgical methods. Liposuction is the most popular form of plastic surgery in America because its results are immediate, dramatic, and long-lasting.
You must be in good health to have liposuction performed. The body treats the loss of fat cells as an injury, and responds accordingly, so like all surgeries, there are certain risks associated with liposuction. Dr. Azharian will discuss these risks with you in detail at your initial consultation.
Effects of Liposuction on the Skin
Because liposuction removes fat from beneath the skin very rapidly, it can leave the skin looking irregular, loose, or wrinkled. If this effect becomes overly pronounced, Dr. Azharian has several options at his disposal for correcting the issue.
Is Liposuction in Tampa and Wesley Chapel Permanent?
That’s actually a somewhat complex question. The fat cells removed from an area will not grow back, and the body does not grow new fat cells…often. If you gain a significant amount of weight, however, and your existing fat cells ‘fill up,’ your body can and will create new fat cells in the area and begin to use them to store new fat. If you remain at the same weight after liposuction, however, it is effectively permanent.
Liposuction Surgery Procedure
Liposuction is often pictured as a vacuuming-up of fat, and that’s actually fairly accurate. A small incision is made over the area to be affected, and a small tube is inserted and used to suck up the fat.
Post-op recovery is fairly fast — most people can return to work after just a few days, up to a week if the area operated on was extensive. That said, bruising and swelling can be problematic for up to two weeks, and will require a compression garment to be worn around the affected areas.
Dr. Azharian understands that troublesome spots on your body can negatively impact your self-esteem and quality of life. The team at Magnolia Plastic Surgery always does their best to help each patient reach their individual aesthetic goals.

Tampa Liposuction FAQ
Why choose liposuction?
A well-balanced diet and daily exercise aren’t always enough to achieve a lean, contoured body. For many individuals, pregnancy, genetics, and the effects of aging makes it virtually impossible to lose stubborn fat pockets, particularly in the thighs, hips, abdomen, and upper arms. If you wrestle with resistant fat deposits, liposuction in Tampa and Wesley Chapel, FL may be the solution for you.
What is the difference between liposuction and weight loss programs?
Unlike weight loss programs, liposuction surgery creates a more contoured silhouette by extracting excess fat cells from the targeted areas. This minimally invasive procedure can be used on any area of the body, such as back rolls, waist, hips, abdomen, thighs, chin, pubic region, and more.
How long does recovery take?
Liposuction surgery is usually an outpatient procedure performed at a surgical center. Patients are released the same day of their procedure. Surgical incisions are typically about ¼ of an inch in length and are placed in hidden areas. Patients return to regular daily activities in two to three days.
