Why Avalon

For many people, diet and exercise don’t bring about the results that they hope to see. No matter how many crunches are done or how much time is spent in the gym, some people are just not able to achieve the results they are seeking. In these situations people turn to cosmetic surgery procedures such as liposuction, which can often be the perfect procedure to help get rid of stubborn trouble areas. Liposuction takes just a few hours and patients are sent home immediately with very little recovery time.

Liposuction surgery is a body contouring procedure that will help eliminate stubborn pockets of fat that remain after pregnancy, as result of sudden weight loss, after bariatric surgery and similar life events. It is important to note that liposuction surgery is not a weight loss solution. The procedure helps reshape and slim the body into a more proportional physique. It is an enhancement of the body rather than a weight loss operation. It is very important to understand the difference. Dr. Trigari will talk to you about your potential results and draft a customized treatment plan for your aesthetic needs.

Liposuction After Pregnancy

At Avalon Lipo & Aesthetics, Dr. Tirgari uses the latest liposuction techniques, including the Smart Lipo procedure, to help new moms restore their slim and attractive physique. Using liposuction, he can reshape the tummy, the buttocks and the thighs. In addition to any other areas of concern.

He performs the procedure by removing stored post-pregnancy fat deposits. In order to do this, Dr. Tirgari first makes small incisions in the treatment area. Through these incisions, he inserts a laser-assisted cannula or suctioning device that literary melts and loosens the fat deposits, which are then suctioned out. The advantage of laser liposuction is that it has a skin tightening effect post-surgery, thereby making it even easier for new moms to eliminate their struggle with sagging skin.

For safety reasons, Dr. Tirgari only performs post-pregnancy lipo on women who have tried to lose the weight naturally for at least six months. Also, no more than three to four liters of fluid is removed during the procedure. All of this ensures patient safety and a faster, easier recovery.


The results after a liposuction procedure can be permanent since the fat cells are permanently removed.  While it is possible for patients to regain weight, the body, however, can maintain an improved appearance due to a more proportioned look.  Liposuction in Carlsbad can be an ideal body-sculpting tool to help you look your best.

Liposuction Surgery and Lifestyle Changes

Liposuction surgery is not a solve-it-all procedure, as mentioned above. Therefore, San Diego liposuction patients should expect to make significant lifestyle changes before and after liposuction surgery. Prior to liposuction and after the surgery, patients will be asked to exercise regularly and have a healthy diet. Our staff and Dr. Tirgari can assist you in developing a healthy lifestyle that will prepare you for your cosmetic surgery, and help you maintain your results after the procedure. The ideal candidates for liposuction surgery are patients who are very close to their ideal body weight, but struggle with persistent deposits of fat.

Liposuction Surgery Candidacy

Liposuction surgery is not appropriate for individuals who suffer from major illnesses, including diabetes, obesity, severe lung disease, heart disease, poor wound healing, blood clotting problems and/or disorders, uncontrolled hypertension and the like. Liposuction should not be performed if you may be pregnant or on Accutane, as this may promote keloid scarring. Smoking is also strongly discouraged as it may slow the healing process and lead to similar complications. Dr. Tirgari will talk to you in great detail about liposuction surgery candidacy.
