What is the Liposuction Age Limit?

Are you too old for liposuction? Not anymore! In the past, traditional liposuction procedures could be physically traumatic for older patients. These methods require long incision lines, which can lead to more scarring in older patients. They require more aggressive techniques to remove fat, which can lead to longer recovery times. A longer healing process can increase the risk of infection. These invasive procedures may end up leaving old skin sagging in their wake.

Nowadays, the health of an individual is more important than age to determine the candidacy for liposuction. And with the latest advancements in VASER High-Definition Liposuction, older patients can get the results they want without the trauma.

How VASER HD Lipo Works for Older Patients

VASER Hi-Def Liposuction removes unwanted fat and tightens loosened, saggy skin. HD Lipo allows us to target specific areas, such as a “turkey goblet” or “bat wing” with minimal invasiveness. At our Newport Beach or Laguna Beach high-definition liposuction centers, this procedure can take the place of more invasive surgeries like traditional arm tucks (brachioplasty) and face and neck lifts.

First, VASER gently melts away fat deposits beneath your skin. Then, very small incisions (smaller than a pencil eraser) are used to insert thin cannulas (suction tools) beneath the dermal layer. The liquefied fat is easily removed from beneath the skin. Then, Cool Helium Plasma skin tightening is used to literally “shrink wrap” your sagging and redundant skin. Both of these procedures are performed simultaneously allowing patients to attain their goals in a safe and single, minimally invasive procedure. Click here to learn more about VASER Lipo.

Dr. Mowlavi will assess your skin texture to determine where you will benefit from Cool Helium Plasma Skin Tightening. The patient in this video had a mini-tummy tuck and tightening of her “love-handles”. This enables Dr. Mowlavi to do minimal-cutting and tighten the rest.

How Does it Work?

In the video below, Dr. Mowlavi operates to fix sagging upper arms without any incisions at all. This is an industry-first, and the results are phenomenal.

If you’ve been contemplating a face-lift, high-def lipo could be a less invasive alternative. With this procedure, patients will notice dramatic reduction of sagging neck skin without the surgical risks of a traditional neck lift. And patients may also have skin resurfacing to eliminate fine wrinkles and annoying sunspots at the same time.
