Sculpt your body
What is the Liposuction Tuck San Diego?
The liposuction procedure gives you the ability to sculpt your core, arms or thighs by eliminating fat from precise areas that are resistant to common weight loss methods
Why have a Liposuction procedure?
Liposuction and body contouring procedures are some of Dr. D’Souza’s specialty.
Liposuction is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures in the United States. This procedure helps you attain a sculpted physique.
What can you expect during the procedure?
Liposuction is performed in the operating room. Liposuction utilizes small incisions usually two millimeters long to remove fat from areas that are difficult to lose with normal exercise. Liposuction can be performed in the tummy, the love handles, thighs, arms, or neck. Dr. D’Souza performs these surgeries under local anesthesia, sedation or twilight anesthesia or general anesthesia. If you have multiple areas that you are concerned with Dr. D’Souza can design an operation that targets all of the areas during one operation. Dr. D’Souza uses a super-wet technique which is one of the safest liposuction techniques used in the industry. After reviewing all the incision placement with you before the procedure. When you go into the operating room, an anesthesiologist will administer anesthesia before the procedure. At this time Dr. Dsouza will go to work and will meticulously sculpt your body. Overall the procedure can take anywhere from 1-2 hours.
What can you expect after the procedure?
Liposuction is a minor procedure and requires minor recovery time. We will discuss exercise and lifting restrictions at your pre-operative visit. Walking is highly encouraged after the procedure to keep blood circulating for a safe recovery. Most people require approximately 2 days of recovery time before returning to their normal activities.
How long will the results last?
You will see some results immediately. However, the final results of the Liposuction procedure may take a few months to fully develop as swelling needs time to subside. Some visible scars may remain, but the overall results will be long lasting provided that general fitness and nutritional care are maintained.

- You have no major health problems
