Cosmetic Surgeon Explains Brandi Glanville’s NSFW Liposuction Procedure – Exclusive

Reality stars keep introducing us to new plastic surgery trends, from fancy new injections to procedures that sound more like they belong on a spaceship than in a doctor’s office. Brandi Glanville, the former Real Housewife who still gives, did just that when she announced Twitter that she had undergone liposuction in a relatively NSFW area.

“Yes I had laser lipo on my Fupa,” she tweeted in late July, referencing Urban Dictionary’s description of the stomach area just below the belly button. “I wasn’t cut open and I was awake the whole time.” Of course, that piqued our curiosity — and not just because, as Glanville also noted in her tweet, she had previously said she would never get liposuction. “Guess what people are allowed to change their minds about,” she wrote. “I’ve always said if I do something, I’ll be the first to tell you everything.” (That’s certainly true.)

Anyway, we wanted to know more about this space laser liposuction, so we went to an expert, plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Satey from Beverly Hills. “Laser liposuction has actually been around for a while,” Satey exclusively tells Nicki Swift. “It works by using thermal energy to loosen and kill the fat cells.” Tell us more…

Laser liposuction can be “great” for small amounts of body fat

according to dr Sean Satey’s use of the laser’s thermal energy to remove fat cells makes them easier to remove, meaning general anesthesia is not required. “The procedure is great for low to medium amounts of body fat with smaller areas,” Satey tells Nicki Swift. “Traditional liposculpting is better for patients who have larger amounts of body fat and want immediate results. Also, there is no skin tightening associated. However, much more fat can be extracted.”

“RHOBH” star Brandi Glanville said she performed the procedure on her “FUPA,” which Satey (politely) calls “Fatty Upper Pubic Area.” He adds that this is pretty standard. “This procedure is often combined with liposculpture of the upper and lower abdomen and flanks to allow for a beautiful and harmonious flow.”

On “Watch What Happens Live” in July (via Page Six), Glanville explained why she chose to do the procedure in her signature style. “Everyone was like, ‘Are you pregnant?'” she told Andy Cohen. “But I guess you know what? I will gift myself. So I’m wearing a piece of clothing I can barely breathe, but I’m here.” Live your life, girl.
