What is the Liposuction Tuck San Diego?
Stubborn body fat can be difficult to eliminate with traditional methods such as a strict diet and rigorous exercise routine. Liposuction is one of the most sought-after cosmetic body procedures in the United States because it is effective and delivers customized results. This contouring surgery is designed to give patients the sculpted, customized physique they desire by removing pockets of localized fat.
Candidates for Liposuction
Patients without major health problems who do not smoke and have realistic expectations may be good candidates for liposuction. Men and women may undergo the procedure to address localized fat deposits in many areas of the body, including:
- Upper arms
- Back/Bra Roll
- Hips/Love Handles
The Liposuction Procedure
Liposuction is an outpatient procedure that can be done using local anesthesia, twilight sedation, or general anesthesia. Dr. D’Souza will make small incisions to insert the cannula (thin suctioning tube) into the target areas. He uses the super-wet technique, which is one of the safest liposuction methods in the industry. The anesthesiologist will administer the anesthesia, the incisions will be made, and tumescent fluid is injected into the target fat deposits to help ease the removal of fatty tissue. The fat is then removed, and the incisions are closed. Liposuction typically takes one to two hours to complete, depending on the amount of fat being removed.
Recovery and Results
You will notice an immediate difference in the treatment area. However, the final results of your procedure may take a few months to develop as any swelling subsides. Discomfort, swelling, and bruising will be present after treatment. Most patients can go back to work within one week and should start taking light walks one or two days after their surgery. More strenuous activities should be avoided for a few weeks. All movement restrictions will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Your overall results will be long lasting as long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. Because the incisions are small, any visible scarring will be easily concealed under clothing.
