In many cases, it is impossible to achieve an ideal body shape through diet and exercise alone. This is because your age and congenital factors influence how fat is distributed throughout the body, resulting in stubborn pockets of fat that detract from a fit and toned overall appearance – no matter how much time you spend at the gym. When this occurs, Dr. Farzaneh in the Inland Empire may recommend liposuction as a way to surgically remove localized areas of fat to create a smooth, balanced and sculpted figure.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery designed to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise, creating a slimmer and more appealing body contour.
It is important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss surgery – it is a body sculpting procedure. As such, it is used to slim specific “problem areas” on the body, not to help patients lose weight.
Liposuction (Lipoplasty, Liposculpture or Suction-Assisted Lipectomy) is a procedure that has become increasingly effective as new methods are developed over time. Liposuction can be used to slenderize or reshape and sculpt a variety of body areas
- Chin or neck
- Upper arms
- Hips or flanks
- Calves or ankles

Areas and types of liposuction
Fortunately for Dr. Farzaneh's Inland Empire liposuction patients, it is possible to undergo liposuction of more than one body area during the same procedure. Additionally, in order to achieve optimum results there are different liposuction methods that can be utilized, including:
Tumescent liposuction, which involves a saline/anesthetic/adrenaline solution to ease the extraction of fat (also known as “wet” or “super-wet” liposuction). This technique has been shown to reduce the risk of bleeding, therefore allowing a higher-yield procedure and also lessening the risk of bruising.
Ultrasonic liposuction / Infrasonic liposuction
Ultrasonic liposuction / Infrasonic liposuction, which employs ultrasonic or infrasonic vibrations to break up fat cells prior to their removal (also known as “ultrasound-assisted” liposuction). It is also thought to stimulate skin contracture and tightening.
Commonly treated areas include:
Neck liposuction, which not only removes excess fat but also contours the jaw line and reduces the hanging neck tissue by promoting skin shrinkage, therefore giving a more youthful face.
Arm liposuction is another wonderful procedure that can reshape the upper arm shape and bring more definition to the underlying muscles. Dr. Farzaneh utilizes a circumferential 360 degree liposuction of the upper arms that maximizes skin shrinkage and provides a very harmonious and uniform contour.
Body liposuction, better described as “body sculpting,” can reshape a patient’s figure by creating more desirable line angles. The critical point to remember is that it is not how much fat can be removed, but how to create the right curves. For example, lower back liposuction can exaggerate and create more youthful and rounder buttocks. Also, a small amount of liposculpting of the flanks can significantly improve the waistline, creating or recreating a more hourglass shape.
Chest liposuction in male patients is usually performed for gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is the abnormal development of the female-like breast tissue in boys and men. It usually occurs around puberty, but can occur in all age groups even in the elderly. The cosmetic aspects of gynecomastia do affect a patient’s self-confidence and often limits his social and physical activity.
Additionally, it is feasible to complement a primary procedure with liposuction. For example, many patients opt to combine liposuction with an additional body contouring surgery such as a tummy tuck–-or, perhaps, a breast enhancement or facial rejuvenation procedure. With Dr. Farzaneh in Chino Hills, the sky is the limit.
What is tickle liposuction?
Dr. Farzaneh is proud to offer his Inland Empire patients tickle liposuction, the latest fat removal and body contouring procedure to be approved by the FDA. Named for the tickling sensation patients experience during surgery, tickle liposuction is a minimally invasive way to remove fat and sculpt targeted areas of the body.
The primary benefits of tickle liposuction are:
- It does not require general anesthesia, and can instead be performed under local anesthesia or IV sedation.
- It removes fat but leaves the surrounding tissue undisturbed, resulting in a smoother contour and a quick recovery.
- There is little to no discomfort associated with the procedure.
- Results are visible immediately.
Dr. Farzaneh is an amazing surgeon. Very professional and really listens to your concerns. He explains the procedure and makes sure your expectations are realistic. Certainly the most caring physician of any type I have ever encountered. My brow lift and lipo went very well and I am thrilled with the results. He is a perfectionist - what more could you possibly ask of a cosmetic surgeon? I wouldn't think of going to anyone else.
Following liposuction with Dr. Farzaneh, you can expect to see a slimmer and more beautiful appearance when you look in the mirror. Depending on the body features you had treated, your abdomen, hips and thighs will be more defined, and excess fat will have been removed from any other “problem areas.”
In addition, because Dr. Farzaneh has a reputation for delivering among the best liposuction Inland Empire has available, you can also expect to possess the smoothest body contour possible, without significant skin irregularities or rippling effects that are common after poorly performed liposuction procedures.

Are you a candidate for liposuction?
As with all of his cosmetic procedures, Dr. Farzaneh determines liposuction candidacy on an individual basis, following a thorough discussion of the patient’s cosmetic goals, concerns and desires. With that said, ideal candidates for this surgery are generally:
- In good overall health.
- Without any medical conditions that may impair healing or increase surgery risk.
- Realistic in their expectations of surgery.
In addition, candidates for liposuction should have firm and elastic skin, as well as excess pockets of fat that they would like to remove. Also, liposuction tends to work best for patients who are within a normal weight range, yet have unwanted bulges that cannot be eliminated by diet and exercise alone.
