If you’re considering liposuction, you’ve probably already tried dieting and exercise, and yet you’re still bothered by some aspect of your shape—whether that be a muffin top, thigh bulge, or arm fat. At La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa, our surgeons have significant experience performing liposuction, and we can help you evaluate what’s possible and what’s not.
Can liposuction help you reach your goals?
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 San Diego plastic surgeons will sit down with you in your initial consultation and discuss your goals for your body. Liposuction can help in any of the following cases:
- Are you a woman dealing with genetic fat deposits that affect your ability to feel comfortable in fitted clothing or a bathing suit?
- Are you a man who’s worried about “love handles” that distract from an otherwise normal shape?
- Are you a 70-year-old lady who doesn’t care about potential loose skin after liposuction, and you just want your jeans to fit right?
In medical terms, these common scenarios all describe people with some amount of 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.

All You Need to Know About Liposuction
Long Term Results
As the fat cells are physically removed, your new contour will last a long time. However, it’s still important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, as you can gain weight in other areas, which could affect your results. We find that the boost in self-confidence that many liposuction patients experience after their surgery helps renew their commitment to eat well and stay in shape.
