Best results in Liposuction are seen in patients with good diets and exercise regimens who have those “stubborn areas” such as flanks and saddle bags.
Do you exercise vigorously and diet but are still not seeing the slim and sculpted body you desire? Liposuction might be the solution you need to achieve your dream body. Considered to be the gold standard in fat removal, liposuction is a safe and effective body contouring procedure with a long track record of proven results.
But the most important decision you will make regarding liposuction is not the technique or technology used, it’s the plastic surgeon who will perform the procedure. It is imperative that you choose a surgeon with the right combination of training, skill and experience. And with True Beauty San Diego Aesthetic Surgery & Medicine, you could not be in better hands. Our lead plastic surgeon, Dr. Brian Reagan, has years of experience performing liposuction and delivering consistently safe and natural-looking results. Dr. Reagan along with the True Beauty team will be there every step of the way to ensure your liposuction procedure and experience is truly comfortable and successful.
Are You a Candidate for Liposuction?
Liposuction is designed to remove small, localized deposits of fat that are hard to remove with diet and exercise alone. Liposuction is not a weight loss tool. For best results, you must be near or at a healthy weight and have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone. If you wish to remove a substantial amount of weight, we may recommend you do so before or instead of liposuction.
Liposuction is often combined with lift procedures to simultaneously eliminate fat and loose, excess skin. These procedures include tummy tuck, which removes loose, excess skin in the abdomen and repairs weakened abdominal muscles. Liposuction can also be combined with lower body lift, which targets loose skin on the thighs and buttocks. Our team will create a treatment plan tailored to meet your specific needs following a physical examination and discussion of your aesthetic concerns and goals.
Liposuction is usually performed on an outpatient basis with general anesthesia for your complete comfort. There are a number of liposuction techniques that can be used and our team will recommend the one that best aligns with your needs and goals. Traditional liposuction involves creating a few small incisions in the treatment areas. A thin and hollow tube (called a cannula) is inserted through the incisions and moved back and forth to break up the fatty tissue. The unwanted fat is then removed from the body using gentle liposuction. This process is repeated until all of the unwanted fat is removed. Our team is careful and deliberate in removing the fat in order to produce smooth and proportional results. Once the procedure is complete, the incisions will be closed with sutures.
After your liposuction procedure, you will notice that the treated area looks flatter and firmer. To maintain your results, we recommend you follow healthy lifestyle habits, including not smoking, exercising regularly and eating a healthy diet.
