Deciding on Your San Diego Liposuction

Posted on December 2, 2013 by - Body Procedures, Liposuction

 When it comes to body contouring and fat reduction, the options currently available are limitless. If you are feeling lost and overwhelmed with all the options, you are not alone. Having a plastic surgeon that is well versed in all the current techniques is what you need to make the right decision for you.  Here at our San Diego plastic surgery office Dr. Chacon will assess and evaluate your health status, the condition of your skin, and the amount of fat underneath your skin during the initial consultation, making it easier for you to decide which technique suits you best.

 Not a Weight Loss Method

While liposuction is not your ideal weight loss method, when it comes to body contouring and removal of fat from “problem areas,” it is the most effective treatment with minimal down time. These are just some of the areas:

  • chin and neck
  • bra rolls
  • upper back
  • armpit and upper arms
  • muffin top, love handles, and abdominal flanks
  • lower back
  • buttocks
  • beer belly or protruding gut
  • excess fat deposits in your thighs, knees, ankles, and calves

Different Variations of Liposuction in San Diego

  • Power-Assisted Liposuction
  • Tumescent Liposuction
  • Ultrasonic Liposuction
  • SmartlipoTM Laser Liposuction
  • Laser-Assisted Liposuction
  • Liposuction with Local Anesthesia
  • Cellulite Reduction

Ideal Candidates for Liposuction

An ideal candidate for liposuction procedure should have realistic expectations of the procedure and understand that while it may improve your appearance, it won’t replace the importance of maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine. Those who are going through a weight loss program are generally advised to be close to their ideal weight before considering liposuction. Those who have diabetes or conditions that effect blood circulation and ability to heal are advised to consult their primary doctor to help optimize their general health. Now that you have considered your options, you are prepared to discuss it in far more detail with Dr. Chacón during the initial consultation.
