What is Liposuction?
Liposuction (often referred to as “lipo”) is a minimally invasive plastic surgery that permanently removes fat cells to improve body contours. It is not a weight loss procedure and is intended to target isolated areas of stubborn fat. Lipo may be performed alone or in combination with other procedures, such as breast augmentation, mommy makeover, and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva offers the best liposuction techniques available to deliver exceptional results with minimal downtime. Some options may include tumescent liposuction (fluid-assisted) and SmartLipo (laser-assisted liposuction).
Liposuction treatment can address multiple areas of the body, including:
- Love handles
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper arms
- Bra fat
- Male breasts
Other areas may be discussed with Dr. Ho Taghva and performed on a case-by-case basis.
Ideal Candidates for Liposuction
Liposuction candidates in Orange County include men and women who have specific areas of excess body fat that are unresponsive to proper diet and exercise. A good candidate for this body contouring procedure will be within 30 percent of their ideal weight, have firm skin with good elasticity, enjoy a healthy, balanced diet, and exercise regularly.
Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva examines each patient during a consultation to determine if liposuction is right for them. Good candidates should have realistic lipo and plastic surgery expectations.

A Lipo Consultation
Liposuction consultations with Dr. Ho Taghva at the LEA Plastic Surgery begin with a discussion of the patient’s goals, a physical examination, and a review of their health history. The doctor will also share before and after photos from previous liposuction patients and invite the prospective patient to ask questions.
Dr. Ho Taghva then creates a treatment plan for approved lipo candidates. Each treatment plan is customized to match the patient’s cosmetic desires and may include options like liposuction performed alone or with another treatment like a tummy tuck or Brazilian butt lift.
The Liposuction Procedure
Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva performs plastic surgery procedures and minimally invasive treatments at the Medicare-accredited GALEA Center for Advanced Surgery, conveniently located next door to LEA Plastic Surgery. Medicare accreditation is the highest certification offered for outpatient ambulatory surgery centers, and Dr. Ho Taghva is proud to provide this exceptional care for her lipo patients in Orange County.
Liposuction surgery plans vary slightly to meet the unique needs of the patient. Dr. Ho Taghva explains the details of the treatment plan including surgery duration, anesthesia, the type of liposuction, and accompanying surgery details during the consultation.
The doctor performs standalone lipo treatments using local anesthesia but may use general anesthesia when liposuction is accompanied by another procedure, such as abdominoplasty or a mommy makeover.
Dr. Ho Taghva begins tumescent liposuction procedures in Newport Beach by preparing the treatment areas for fat removal. A solution containing saline, epinephrine, and a neurotransmitter is injected into the treatment area to shrink the blood vessels and minimize bleeding. This solution also helps to make the fat easier to remove.
Small incisions are made in the treatment areas. A liposuction cannula (suction tube) is then used to remove the desired amount of fat. This gentle technique reduces side effects like bruising and swelling.
The doctor may use liposuction during a tummy tuck with general anesthesia to remove pockets of excess fat before removing loose skin and stretch marks, tightening the muscles, and smoothing the skin.
Recovering from Lipo
Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva will fully explain the procedure, including the recovery details, during the consultation. The recovery time after liposuction is minimal. Compression garments are an essential aspect of recovery and must be worn over the treated areas as directed. The garments encourage the body to adjust to the new contours and protect the liposuction results during healing.
The liposuction recovery is relatively short, and patients generally return to work in less than a week. When liposuction and other procedures are combined, the healing process is longer, but the results are definitely worth the extra downtime.
