San Diego Liposuction
If you’re considering liposuction in San Diego, you’ve probably already tried dieting and exercise, yet you’re still bothered by some aspect of your shape. Our surgeons have significant experience performing liposuction, and we can help you evaluate what’s possible and what’s not.
Liposuction is often called liposculpture to reflect your surgeon’s ability to sculpt your body into a more pleasing shape. Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, Mother Nature needs a little nudge in the right direction. This is when liposuction can help.
Our board certified plastic surgeons will sit down with you in your initial consultation and discuss your goals for your body.
- Are you a woman dealing with genetic fat deposits that affect your ability to feel comfortable in your clothing?
- Are you a man who’s worried about “love handles” that distract from an otherwise normal shape?
- Or maybe you’re a 70-year-old lady who didn’t care about potential loose skin after liposuction, she just wanted her jeans to fit!
The most common reasons you may be a candidate for liposuction are if you have excess subcutaneous fat, which is resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction may also be desirable if you wish to change the contours of your body. Commonly involved areas are your trunk, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs, inner knees, calves, and ankles. You may also be concerned about your neck (under the chin), upper arms, and armpits. Men are sometimes concerned about fatty deposits on their chest/breasts.
Most San Diego liposuction patients are near normal weight and desire permanent contour changes. Improved liposuction techniques now allow larger amounts of fat to be removed safely. Liposuction can be useful to heavier persons as well, but in the context of a healthy lifestyle and realistic expectations.
- Your body mass index (BMI) is an important factor in evaluating whether liposuction is a good solution for you. Calculate your BMI here.
Liposuction is intended to produce a permanent improvement in the contour and proportion of the treated areas. A more flattering figure or physique, in or out of clothing, is another goal of liposculpture. Liposuction can range from $3,600-$8,800, depending on the area and amount of fat you wish to remove.
About Liposuction Surgery
Liposuction is done on an outpatient basis. General anesthesia is usually used for safety and comfort. Small suction tubes (cannulas) are inserted through very short incisions placed in inconspicuous locations near the fat deposits, and excess fat is removed.
