Skinny on Lipo: Dr. Wigoda’s Liposuction Frequently Asked Questions

As the heat index here in Florida continues to climb and people spend more time in their bathing suits, many Floridians are considering getting liposuction to get the body they want. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wigoda warns patients to educate themselves on the different types of liposuction and to do their research before choosing their Florida plastic surgeon for any procedure.

What is liposuction? Also known as lipoplasty or liposculpture, the procedure removes excess fat deposits, slimming and shaping specific areas of the body. Liposuction can treat stubborn fat pockets in several places on the body, including abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, inner knees, arms, neck and hips. Liposuction can be performed on its own or combined with other plastic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation, a facelift or tummy tuck.

Contrary to common belief, liposuction is not a weight-loss solution. The procedure was designed to treat small areas of fat. Many patients seek liposuction to remove stubborn fat deposits that linger in spite of diet and exercise.

Considering having lipo done? There are several different types of liposuction procedures:

  • Ultra-sonic liposuction
  • Smart lipo
  • Suction assisted liposuction
  • Power assisted liposuction

Dr. Wigoda recommends ultra-sonic liposuction as he believes it to be most effective in achieving your desired results. Despite the current popularity of Smart liposuction, Dr. Wigoda does not feel it is as effective as ultra-sonic liposuction and has only become a buzzword due to heavy marketing.

It is also important to know what type of doctor your surgeon is. While legally any doctor can perform a liposuction, patients should only entrust their bodies to board-certified plastic surgeons for cosmetic procedures.

Dr. Wigoda urges any patient considering liposuction to do their research and consult a Florida plastic surgeon with good credentials and reviews.

Dr. Wigoda Reports on Woman’s Botched Eyelid Surgery

Marilyn Liesz is suing her plastic surgeon for negligenceA New Jersey woman is suing her doctor, claiming she can’t close her eyes after getting a procedure done on her eyelids. The eyelid lift was intended to restore a youthful appearance to the eyes by cutting away excess skin. However, when too much skin was removed, Liesz was left unable to close her eyes completely.

Marilyn Liesz is suing Dr. Paul Parker for negligence. Parker’s attorney told the jury Leisz was warned of the risks before performing the surgery in 2005, especially since she had previously undergone multiple other procedures  before seeing Dr. Parker.

Leisz now uses a gel and vaporizer at night so she doesn’t scratch her eyes. She also says she’s losing her vision and lives in fear of injuring her eyes.

“All the favorite things I used to, like tennis, racquetball, swimming, horseback riding, bike riding, skeet shooting, gardening, I can’t do those things,” Leisz said. While it may be possible to correct the procedure, Liesz is wary of going under the knife yet again.

Dr. Wigoda encourages potential patients to interview several plastic surgeons before having work done. Instead of rushing through a procedure, a good plastic surgeon will help decide whether a patient is a good candidate for a surgery and ensure the patient is fully aware of the risk involved.

Dr. Wigoda reflects on the E! reality show ‘Bridalplasty’, giving real-world plastic surgery insight into pre-wedding procedures!

Dying to get a little nip or tuck before your big day? Dr. Wigoda recommends scheduling a surgical procedure at least three months in advance, and allowing at least a week to recover from a non-surgical procedure

Dr. Paul Wigoda Reviews Joan Rivers’ Plastic Surgery

Legendary comedian, TV personality and “Fashion Police” host Joan Rivers is known for her brash personality, strong New York dialect – and equally bold plastic surgery procedures.

Lifts Lead the 2016 plastic surgery List,

In this video, Dr. Wigoda describes Rivers’ various cosmetic surgery procedures through the years, from the 1980s to present.

Dr. Wigoda’s advice to Rivers, not surprisingly, is to ease up on the plastic surgery procedures a bit: “I would definitely stop all surgical procedures on her. I think she can continue with Botox…her lips look fine, I might fill in her nasal labial folds a little bit. I definitely wouldn’t do anything to her cheeks, other than possibly take out a little of the fat.”

Heidi Klum No Plastic Surgery Necessary

She’s not called Heidi “the body” for nothing.

At 35, Heidi Klum is truly one of the most beautiful women in the world – and according to Dr. Wigoda she is definitely an all-natural beauty. Known to credit her good genes for her appearance, German-born Heidi certainly has her parents to thank for giving her the supermodel looks we all idolize.

Here’s what South Florida plastic surgeon, Dr. Wigoda has to say:

“Obviously, it is difficult to come up with anything less than positive to say when looking at one of the world’s most beautiful women. From a cosmetic surgery standpoint, she has no flaws to fix.

She has perfectly smooth skin in the forehead, glabella, and crow’s feet region. There is no way to know if this is good genes or if she has had Botox, but I suspect it is mostly genetic. Her jaw line is perfect. She has no jowls and the skin is taut throughout.

Looking at her eyelids, there is no skin laxity in the upper or lower lids and no fatty bags in the lower lids. She is still relatively young, though. At 35, women with good genes who take care of themselves (don’t smoke, avoid sun exposure, eat healthy, etc) often don’t need to have any work done, although some will have Botox more as a preventative treatment than to eliminate existing wrinkles.”

Pre-Wedding Plastic Surgery Is On The Rise

In the not-so-distant past, getting married meant months of planning. These tedious months included
finding dresses, tuxedoes, location, flowers, and planning bridal party. Now, Fort Lauderdale plastic surgeons like Dr. Wigoda are reporting that many brides (and grooms) to be are adding Botox, liposuction, lip augmentation, and rhinoplasty to that list!

With more and more people hoping to be picture-perfect on their big day, Dr. Wigoda sees brides-to-be resorting to what were once considered extreme measures. Dr. Wigoda’s pre-wedding patients, whether male or female, have often already been thinking about cosmetic surgery and their impending nuptials are often simply at catalyst for them to make the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery.

“Typically, I see younger brides coming in for liposuction or breast augmentation a few months before the wedding. Brides in their 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s often come in for Botox or fillers. I also see family members, especially the mothers of the bride or groom, who come in for anything from injectables to facelifts.”
