How do I select my Plastic Surgeon?

Experience and safety, and should always be your primary criteria. Knowing the credentials and training of your Plastic Surgeon is paramount. Board certification in plastic surgery is essential. Has your surgeon been granted hospital privileges to perform Liposuction procedures? Ask to see your physician’s personal before and after liposuction photos.

How much does Liposuction cost in the Tampa area?

You can find Liposuction advertised for as little as $1000 dollars in the Brandon, Riverview, Tampa and Lakeland Florida areas. Some quotes are based on the number of areas suctioned while others are time of surgery related. Be sure you are really getting an experienced Plastic Surgeon, one who provides true aesthetic bodysculpting and shaping rather than just bulk removal of fat. Make certain your plastic surgeon has a practice dedicated to performing state of the art body contouring. Safety and quality should be your main concern – not cost.

Are Liposuction results permanent?

The Internet offers an abundance of information and advice on liposuction, much of which is marketing hype or patient commentary. Sadly, little of the information available online comes from rigorous scientific studies evaluating results over the long term. In 2012 results of one such study, which appeared in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, found that the fat removed during liposuction or tummy tuck surgeries does not re-grow, nor does it re-accumulate in the treated areas. Fat will not return or migrate if one avoids additional weight gain and maintains a healthy lifestyle.

What’s the best type of Liposuction?

We hear a confusing array of terms including VASER Lipo, Smart Lipo, Laser Lipo, Cool Lipo, Aqua Lipo, etc. All of these are body contouring fat removal techniques available throughout the Tampa Bay, Brandon and Riverview areas. Many are simply a form of liposuction assisted by lasers, ultrasound, water, or mechanical power. Others are externally applied forms of laser, ultrasound, radio waves, water, cold, heat, vibration or massage. Some are injections of various chemical substances. All claim to be highly effective in reducing the fat accumulations of the body. But your result ultimately depends on the expertise and dedication of your chosen Plastic Surgeon.

Can bad liposuction results be corrected?

Dr. Shienbaum continues to see many Tampa Bay patients unhappy with their liposuction and body contouring results. Some complain of uneven results and unsightly scars while others of persistence stretch marks and belly protuberance. Virtually all say they did not receive what they expected.

In many cases it is simply poor liposuction technique which produced uneven results. The persistence of stretch marks and tummy bulge is more a question of performing the wrong procedure. Sometimes it is a matter of poor patient selection and seeking unattainable goals.

Make certain your Liposuction surgeon has the experience and skills to accurately diagnose and successfully correct all your problem areas. No amount of Liposuction can remove stretch marks, tighten a distended belly smooth cellulite, lift sagging breasts or rejuvenate a flat and hanging derriere. For most patients there is little solitude in having the wrong operation – even if performed well.

Liposuction or Tummy Tuck?

Liposuction can remove the excess fat and produce some accompanying skin shrinkage. However if the skin excess is large with poor elasticity it will not snap back. The result is an empty irregular hanging skin sack which often looks worse than before. Patients with thin stretched skin from aging, multiple pregnancies or massive weight loss are poor candidates for abdominal liposuction alone. The protruding belly caused by distended fascia or muscle separation can never be reversed by Liposuction alone.

Liposuction with a Tummy Tuck & Brazilian Butt Lift?

A simultaneous Lipo Abdominoplasty/Tummy Tuck and Brazilian Butt lift is one of Dr. Shienbaum’s most requested and popular Tampa Bay procedures. The abdominal fat removed during a Tummy Tuck is perfect for lifting a sagging derriere, enhancing a flat shapeless butt and restoring lost breast cleavage. The hourglass shape achieved by combining a tight waistline with a projecting “bubble“ butt in a single operation is truly amazing. Dr. Shienbaum’s expertise in combining these two highly complementary procedures allows him to achieve a remarkably feminine and distinctively sexy body contour.

Is the Brazilian Butt Lift permanent and long lasting?

Before you invest your time and money two essential questions are “Does it feel natural?” and “Does it Last?” Will that instant round plump and gorgeous derriere disappear? It is accepted that while after the initial swelling some loss of fat occurs whatever remains after several weeks time is yours to keep.

24 y/o Apollo Beach Ruskin Liposuction with Brazilian Butt Lift.

Liposuction and the Brazilian Butt Lift

Dr. Shienbaum prefers the appearance of a muscular or athletic butt, one which follows the contours and shape of underlying Gluteal musculature. This butt shape represents a slimmer more youthful, healthier and natural appearance. He feels that the current popularity of excessively round, overly wide and overstuffed butts as an unnatural appearance which will not stand the test of time. Moreover excessive butts look increasingly inappropriate and out of sorts with advancing age.

Buttock contouring can be achieved by careful liposuction and sculpting techniques. Fat is removed from the outer hip, waist, back and thigh regions. It is then refined and meticulously transferred to the buttock mounds to produce a more defined and shapely appearance. Areas of prior cellulite, dimples and other irregularities can be smoothed and rejuvenated.

VASER Liposuction

VASER liposuction utilizes ultrasonic technology and is an advanced body sculpting technique used for many of Dr. Shienbaum’s Tampa, Riverview, Brandon and Lakeland patients. The ultrasonic frequency sound waves resonating from the VASER probes literally shake loose fat cells. What distinguishes the VASER from other procedures is its ability to melt fat while preserving the surrounding connective tissues, nerves, and blood vessels. Because it selectively liquefies unwanted body fat with precision. Dr. Shienbaum is able to achieve outstanding body contouring results.

The VASER system is especially effective in stubborn, hard-to-treat fibrous areas such as male breasts, flanks and back regions VASER ultrasonic liposuction results are permanent. The adult the body does not normally create new fat cells. Once existing deposits of fat cells are effectively removed, they can no longer enlarge out of proportion to the normal body contour. Remember the most important considerations regarding the outcome of your liposuction are the skill and expertise of your Plastic Surgeon.

Liposuction Swelling?

Dr. Shienbaum utilizes foam compression to minimize post liposuction swelling and edema. Any residual hardened or bruised areas can benefit from deep or lymphatic massage performed regularly.

High Definition Lip sculpture

Dr. Shienbaum uses specially designed instrumentation to carefully sculpt out the muscular outlines of the body. These contours are then meticulously etched into the overlying skin. In the hands of a skilled surgeon liposuction still remains the best option for the vast majority of Tampa Bay patients.

Liposculpture represents the absolute standard that all other body contouring procedures are to be judged against. This highly refined sculpting procedure is associated with dramatic results and high patient satisfaction.

Laser Liposuction?

Technologies in the Tampa Bay such as Smart Lipo and Slim Lipo utilize laser-tipped probes to thermally destroy fat cells through a process called thermal lipolysis. The lasers produce concentrated heat to destroy fat cells and cauterize adjacent blood vessels. The destroyed fat cannot be used for fat transfer or rejuvenation elsewhere. Traditionally, laser assisted liposuction has been reserved for only small areas of fat accumulations due to the potential for excess thermal damage and scarring to the surrounding connective tissues.

Liposuction Options?

For the removal of isolated pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, there are numerous non-surgical devices in the Tampa Bay area which claim to permanently destroy fat to achieve their results. These devices use either cold or heat (usually in the form of ultrasound or radiofrequency) and are frequently coupled with some sort of direct mechanical force or vacuum.

However none of these devices can selectively sculpt and contour the body like liposuction can in the hands of a skilled and expert surgeon. Equally important is the need to save and preserve this fat for repositioning and rejuvenation elsewhere in the body.

Dr. Shienbaum considers fat his quintessential natural filler and sculpting tool – it should never be unnecessarily destroyed, discarded or wasted.

A Shorter Liposuction Recovery?

Dr. Shienbaum allows his patients to resume their normal activities at their own pace. The majority are back to work in several days. Some residual soreness or tenderness is to be expected and is usually tolerable.

34 y/o New Tampa liposuction with body contouring.

Many of Dr. Shienbaum’s Tampa liposuction patients have utilized ultrasonic or deep tissue massage while others have preferred lymphatic drainage as a means to speed recovery.

The most important recommendation is to maintain wearing some form of compression garment until you have achieved your final result.

Compression garments after my liposuction?

Compression garments are needed following liposuction to accomplish several important goals:

  1. Reduce and prevent bruising
  2. Limit swelling and fluid accumulations
  3. Hasten absorption of edema
  4. Encourage shrinkage of loose skin
  5. Provide support and maintain posture

The compression garment should provide uniform firm support and fit snugly without any buckling or banding which may cause skin creases and irregularities. For optimum effect the areas of compression and coverage should extend well beyond the limits of your liposuction.

Your garment should be worn continually until all traces of swelling and bruising are gone, typically 3 to 5 weeks. Thereafter many patients, prefer the more comfortable Spanx type garments.

How much weight can I loose from Liposuction?

Patients can typically loose no more than 3-7 lbs. from their liposuction. Remember that liposuction is designed as a body sculpting and contouring procedure, not a weight loss program. Most of Dr. Shienbaum’s liposuction patients from the Tampa, Lakeland, Riverview and Brandon areas have already maxed out their weight loss programs dietary and exercise regimens. Some have even attained their ideal weight but have remaining areas of stubborn fat which they want removed.

Dr. Shienbaum has found modern liposuction contouring to be highly effective for his slim athletic patients who have pockets of exercise resistant fat. A surgeon with the experience and expertise to sculpt along body contours and define the underlying musculature is paramount to these patients. This sculpting ability is unique to the liposuction procedure.

For many individuals the results achieved by Liposuction can be the ultimate motivator toward a new lifestyle and the maintenance of their new look.

Non-Surgical Fat Removal?

There are multiple devices for reducing and eliminating fat on the market. Most generate sufficient heat to destroy and literally burn away fat. Some work by employing ultrasonic waves (Ultra Shape Liposomes) while others use microwave radiofrequency (Vanquish). Coolsculpting takes a different approach and attempts to essentially freeze fat.

Lots of new devices appear on almost a daily basis with lots of media hype. Most require multiple sessions to see any discernible results. Many of these procedures show with some degrees of success, but none are as consistently effective or as liposuction. Always Insist on seeing pre and post photos of your surgeons actual results – not those supplied by the manufacturer. And ask to speak to former patients.

Liposuction and Stretch Marks?

Regardless of the technique used stretch marks will not be removed by liposuction. In many cases it can be worsened. Skin shrinkage and tightening can show modest results in younger healthier skin. However do not expect tightening in tired inelastic skin from pregnancy, aging, or weight loss.

Skin must be inherently elastic to retract and laser liposuction and most light based dermatological therapy results remain unimpressive. When elasticity is lost, particularly in the abdomen significant skin shrinkage or stretch mark improvement may be promised but is seldom true.

Lose Weight Before Liposuction?

It is always better to lose weight on your own. Attaining your ideal weight naturally without dietary supplements or crash diets signifies a well-motivated individual less likely to regain that weight going forward.

If reaching your weight goals are not attainable at least try for a stable weight, one free of fluctuations and that can easily be maintained after surgery. Remember only you can make your Liposuction results last a lifetime.

Does Liposuction Last?

Dr. Shienbaum believes that liposuction changes your body shape permanently. Most men and women in the Tampa Bay area simply have fat in the wrong places. Once this fat is strategically repositioned it remains there. Modern Liposuction is a contouring and shaping tool not a weight loss instrument.

Liposuctioned fat cell are removed forever. However the remaining fat cells elsewhere in your body can still enlarge. To maintain your results do not overfeed those remaining fat cells. To enhance your results simply eat less and exercise more.

Liposuction and Natural Breast Augmentation

Liposuctioned fat has become the most striking body contouring advancement in all of Plastic Surgery. It has been widely accepted and utilized for post mastectomy breast reconstruction and is rapidly gaining favor for cosmetic breast augmentation.

Dr. Shienbaum frequently combines some form of breast lift or breast enhancement with fat obtained during a Liposuction and Tummy Tuck procedure. He considers fat his most desirable facial filler and the single most effective body contouring tool in his Tampa Bay Plastic Surgery practice.
