Sometimes, despite our best efforts with our healthy diet and strict exercise routine, we cannot eliminate stubborn pockets of fat. Here at Restore SD Plastic Surgery, we believe everyone should be comfortable and confident in their own skin. That is why we offer liposuction to help people shape their bodies and feel attractive and confident.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction sculpts your body by removing excess deposits of fat. While it is primarily a fat removal procedure, it is also among the best cosmetic procedures to help you refine your shape. It is so effective, in fact, that it is used for detailed contouring following other procedures.
This FDA-approved, safe, effective outpatient procedure can be performed in the comfort of a state-of-the-art surgical facility. During your initial consultation, our cosmetic surgeon will determine if this procedure is right for you.
Types of Liposuction
There are many types of liposuction, but at Restore SD Plastic Surgery, we don’t believe in gimmicks and know that lipo is still the gold standard when it comes to body contouring. During a consultation, our surgeon can explain the details of the procedure to you.
What Should I Expect?
During your initial consultation, your areas of concern will be examined. The surgeon will advise you on how long you should expect the procedure to last. If you are treating a smaller area, such as your thighs, the procedure will likely take less time than if you are treating several large areas.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The ideal candidate for liposuction has excess deposits of fat on the chest, neck, inner or outer thighs, lower abdomen, or hips that are resistant to diet and exercise. Good candidates usually feel that certain regions are disproportionate to the rest of the body. They also have excellent skin elasticity, meaning their skin will not sag after the procedure. Rather, it will contract and look healthy and natural once the excess fat is removed.
Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is best used to minimize localized fat deposits. Furthermore, you should be around your ideal weight in order to qualify for the procedure.
