Liposuction in Los Angeles, Orange County and San Francisco
The human body undergoes a wide range of changes as it gets older. Unfortunately, several of these changes can lead to the development of stubborn pockets of fat that seem nearly impossible to get rid of. If you are struggling with localized areas of fat that aren’t improving with healthy lifestyle choices, liposuction can help provide you with the slimmer body you’ve been working toward.

Liposuction Can Help Get Rid of Stubborn Fat
Many men and women struggle with problem areas of fat. Maybe you’re trying to lose a double chin, flatten your belly, or get rid of those stubborn love handles, but your efforts in the gym and kitchen don’t seem to be cutting it. This is often the result of your body changing, becoming increasingly resistant to traditional weight loss methods like diet and exercise.
Liposuction works best for those who are already healthy, but are struggling to lose those last few pounds. It is not intended to be a weight loss procedure or an alternative to diet and exercise. It is important you continue to live a healthy lifestyle after your liposuction procedure in order to maintain the long-lasting results that you desire.
How Does Liposuction Work?
Once you are comfortably sedated, your board-certified plastic surgeon will carefully make small incisions in your treatment area. We will then insert a cannula (thin, hollow tube) in through the incision so it reaches into the underlying layer of fat. The cannula, which is connected to a surgical vacuum at the other end, is then carefully maneuvered to help break up the fatty deposits and remove them from your body.
The liposuction process must be done carefully and artistically to avoid an unnatural appearance and any unnecessary side effects. Our doctors will continue removing the excess fat until they have achieved your desired results.
Give your body some time to heal after your procedure. You will likely experience some bruising or swelling, but you will notice a much slimmer figure almost immediately. You should be able to return to work after 1-3 weeks depending on the area that was treated and how much fat was removed.
Remember, just because the fat is gone for good doesn’t mean new fat won’t come back if you adopt an unhealthy lifestyle after your procedure. Your liposuction results can be extremely long-lasting as long as you maintain regular physical activity and make healthy eating choices.
Now that you have your new, slimmer body, you can enjoy activities that you previously dreaded, like taking a trip to the beach or shopping for new clothes.
