SEATTLE, May 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Nearly half of all liposuction procedures performed in recent years by Seattle Plastic Surgeon Dr. Shahram Salemy were performed on multiple body areas at once.
From 2018 through 2022, approximately 45% of liposuction procedures performed by Dr. Salemy were performed on 2 or more areas at one time. While many patients opted to focus on a single treatment area when undergoing liposuction, it was almost as routine to have multiple body areas treated at the same time. Among the most common liposuction combinations are liposuction on the abdomen with either flank liposuction or outer thigh liposuction.
“When it comes to liposuction, treating multiple areas during a single procedure can be an efficient way to achieve comprehensive results for the right candidate,” said Dr. Salemy. “It requires careful consideration of our patient’s safety, unique anatomical factors, and personalized goals to ensure optimal results and minimize risks. As a plastic surgeon, I prioritize safety above all else while striving to achieve the most satisfying outcomes for my patients, whether it’s reclaiming a youthful, sculpted figure, or achieving balance and harmony.”
While it’s becoming more common to have liposuction performed on multiple areas at once, it’s also becoming more common to have Liposuction performed in combination with other plastic surgery procedures like a Tummy Tuck and Brazilian Buttock Lift, which involves fat transfer from liposuction
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States. The number of Liposuction procedures performed has surged since the Pandemic, with some estimates of increases as high as 66% (The Aesthetic Society, Aesthetic Plastic Surgery National Databank Statistics 2020-2021).
