At this time of year, most of us are making our gift shopping list and checking it twice, but at Advanced Liposuction Center we want to know what’s on your wish list. Perhaps you’ve been extra good this year—working out regularly, watching what you eat—but still your body is not quite as you would like it to be. We offer many options both surgical and non-invasive to help you get the look you want. Below is a sampling of items to put on your list for Santa:

A firmer body—our infrared body wraps are a safe, nonsurgical method for tightening loose skin and improving body shape through the use of advanced radio frequency technology to target unwanted fat. In addition, these treatments promote healthy collagen production and can provide help for several conditions including: arthritis, menstrual pain, eczema, fibromyalgia and neurodermatitis.

Volume in all the right places—the ultimate wish we hear frequently is “I’d like to take some unwanted fat from here and use it to plump us this area.” Your wish can come true using our fat transfer procedures. Water-assisted liposuction provides a highly efficient way to remove and preserve healthy fat cells to be reintroduced to another part of your body. Fat from your belly or thighs can be used to restore youthful volume to your face, hands or breasts.

Erase mistakes of the past—if you could turn back time and not get that belly button piercing or tattoo, you would gladly do it. While that’s not possible, we can help undo those choices with an umbilicoplasty to repair and reshape your belly button and laser treatments to remove tattoos you no longer want.

A younger you—time takes a toll on our faces, hands and lips. At Advanced Liposuction Center, we offer lip augmentation, hand rejuvenation, and several different face treatments and surgeries to help you recapture youthful fullness and skin tone.

What pre-operative and post-operative care measures are essential for a successful outcome?

Pre-operative and post-operative care are crucial aspects of ensuring a successful outcome for cosmetic surgeries. While specific measures can vary based on the type of procedure, here are some general pre-operative and post-operative care considerations:

Pre-operative Care:

  1. Medical Evaluation: Undergo a thorough medical evaluation to ensure you are in good health for the planned surgery.
  2. Follow Pre-operative Instructions: Adhere to any pre-operative instructions provided by your surgeon, which may include restrictions on eating, drinking, or medications.
  3. Quit Smoking: If you smoke, consider quitting or reducing smoking before surgery, as smoking can impede the healing process.

Post-operative Care:

  1. Follow Post-operative Instructions: Adhere to all post-operative instructions provided by your surgeon, including medication schedules, wound care, and activity restrictions.
  2. Pain Management: Take prescribed pain medications as directed to manage discomfort. Inform your healthcare provider if pain is not adequately controlled.

How do you address complications or dissatisfaction with results after a cosmetic procedure?

Addressing complications or dissatisfaction with results after a cosmetic procedure requires open communication between the patient and the surgeon. Here are steps that may be taken in such situations:


  1. Immediate Communication: If you experience complications, such as excessive bleeding, infection, or severe pain, contact your surgeon immediately. Early communication is essential for prompt intervention.
  2. Follow-Up Appointments: Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments with your surgeon. This allows them to assess the healing process, identify any issues early, and make necessary adjustments.

Dissatisfaction with Results:

  1. Post-operative Communication: If you are dissatisfied with the results, communicate your concerns with your surgeon during post-operative appointments. Honest and open communication is crucial.
  2. Reassessment of Results: The surgeon will assess the results and discuss whether the dissatisfaction is due to factors like swelling, which can impact the initial appearance.
