Traditional liposuction ("lipoplasty") can remove excess fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise; however, it does not always leave an individual with a defined shape; therefore those interested in attaining more enhanced and sleek body contour may want to consider "liposculpture," which is frequently performed at the practice of Ivan Thomas, M.D., F.A.C.S., a Los Angeles and Beverly Hills liposuction specialist.
He is dedicated to providing safe, advanced techniques that are designed to meet his patient's aesthetic goals. With a location also in Lancaster, California liposuction specialist Dr. Thomas can remove excess deposits of fat while defining the body's contours.
Similar to sculpting or carving a statue, Dr. Thomas will utilize his artistic skills to create continued shapes and curves when performing liposculpture. The patient will receive a cocktail injection of local anesthesia and vasoconstrictors (controls excessive bleeding) prior to the procedure. Commonly, using a combination of the ultrasonic and tumescent liposuction techniques, liposuction doctor Dr. Thomas will skillfully and conservatively shape the body. This technique is effective in treating areas that store the most fat, such as the hips, flanks, abdomen, legs, and thighs.
Commonly, liposuction surgeon Dr. Thomas performs the liposculpture technique during tummy tuck surgery ("abdominoplasty"). This is done for fully sculpting the flanks, back, and midsection. Also a skilled Beverly Hills tummy tuck specialist, Dr. Thomas will incorporate the unique high lateral tummy tuck technique to create tighter abdominal muscles and prevent poor healing. This entails horizontal and vertical tightening of the abdominal muscles.

He has also been voted by patients in the Antelope Valley as the best plastic surgeon for several consecutive years.
