About Abdominal Liposuction

The abdomen is a common problem area for many individuals, especially those struggling with stubborn belly fat that won’t seem to budge despite diet and exercise. Fortunately, liposuction is an effective plastic surgery procedure for removing excess fat and contouring the body in this area. In fact, it’s one of the most popular liposuction procedures available. (1)

How Does Liposuction Work?

Liposuction works by targeting subcutaneous fat, the layer of fat located just beneath the skin. This adipose tissue is suctioned out using a small cannula, resulting in a more toned and sculpted appearance. However, it’s important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss solution.


For individuals seeking a more comprehensive transformation, a tummy tuck may be recommended in addition to liposuction. This surgical procedure involves removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal wall muscles to create a flatter, smoother silhouette.

Candidates for abdominal liposuction should be in good overall health, have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure, and be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle after the surgery. Dr. Michael Omidi, a double board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, California, can help determine if abdominal liposuction is right for you during a consultation.

It’s important to note that while abdominal liposuction can remove excess fat, it is not a weight loss solution or a substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise. Therefore, patients should already be at or near their ideal weight before undergoing this procedure.

Personal Consultation

Every patient has unique needs and concerns when it comes to their body. That’s why we offer a personal consultations. During your consultation, Dr. Omidi will take the time to listen to your goals and assess your medical history to determine if abdominal liposuction is right for you.

During your consultation, Dr. Omidi will discuss what you can expect from your results and provide recommendations on how to maintain them. He will also evaluate the quality of your skin and underlying musculature to ensure that the procedure will produce the desired effect. Depending on your individual needs, he may recommend combining abdominal liposuction with other procedures such as a tummy tuck. We believe that an informed patient is a happy patient. That’s why we encourage you to ask any questions you may have during your consultation. We want you to feel comfortable and confident in your decision to undergo abdominal liposuction.


Once your surgery is scheduled, you will receive detailed preoperative instructions from Dr. Omidi’s team. It is essential to follow these instructions carefully to avoid any complications during or after the surgery. These may include:

  • Avoiding blood thinners and nicotine: Certain medications and habits can increase the risk of bleeding and slow down the healing process. Dr. Omidi will advise you to stop taking blood thinners, supplements, and other medications that can interfere with the surgery. If you smoke, you should quit at least two weeks before and after the surgery.
  • Arranging for transportation and assistance: Abdominal liposuction is an outpatient procedure, which means you can go home the same day. However, you will need someone to drive you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours after the surgery.
  • Arranging some time off work and social commitments: You will need to rest and recover for at least one week after the surgery. Plan to take some time off work, arrange for child care if needed, and avoid strenuous activities until Dr. Omidi clears you to resume normal activities.

By following these steps and working closely with Dr. Omidi’s team, you can prepare yourself for a safe and successful abdominal liposuction procedure.


Liposuction is a way to target stubborn belly fat that may be resistant to traditional weight loss methods. We will start the procedure by administering local anesthesia to numb the treatment area 15-30 minutes before embarking on the fat removal. (2) Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Omidi will make a small surgical incision. Through this incision, Dr. Omidi will carefully remove subcutaneous fat cells using specialized tools. The amount of fat removed depends on each patient’s unique needs and goals, as well as their medical history and BMI (Body Mass Index).

Skin elasticity plays a significant role in achieving optimal results. Therefore, patients with good skin elasticity tend to have more favorable outcomes than those with poor skin elasticity.

Recovery & Results

After an abdominal liposuction, you will need to wear a compression garment over the treated area for several weeks. This will help reduce swelling and aid in contouring the area. It is normal to experience some discomfort, bruising, and swelling in the treated area. Dr. Omidi will prescribe medication to manage any pain or discomfort during your recovery period.

Getting the Results You Want

You should avoid any strenuous activity or exercise for at least 4-6 weeks post-surgery. However, light walking is encouraged to improve circulation and promote healing. It is also important to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle to ensure long-lasting results.

During your follow-up appointments, Dr. Omidi will monitor your progress and provide instructions on when you can resume your normal activities. You will begin to see results within a few weeks after the procedure as the swelling subsides.

Dr. Omidi utilizes advanced techniques to minimize scarring and ensure natural-looking results. With his expertise in abdominal liposuction, you can achieve the body contours you desire with minimal downtime and maximum satisfaction.
