Imagine walking down the boardwalk at Mission Beach in your tiniest bikini. From the corner of your eye, you see strangers checking you out. Do you A.) Wrap yourself in a sarong and pull your hat down over your eyes, or B.) Smile because you know you look amazing, and you’re proud to show off your tight and toned body?If you chose option A, you’re not alone. Many people struggle with stubborn pockets of fat on their abdomens, thighs and arms that refuse to budge regardless of how much time they put in at the gym. However, option B is completely attainable with the added assistance of a liposuction body contouring procedure.

So, will liposuction help me lose weight?
At San Diego Body Contouring, we often have patients who come to us asking how much weight they will lose after receiving liposuction. The truth is, liposuction is not about losing weight. Though weight loss is possible, the primary purpose of a liposuction procedure is to contour the body and eliminate fat from trouble areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.
In our practice, we offer many body-contouring procedures that can help you achieve your goal of a slim, toned physique – regardless of the number on the scale. Here’s a look at three of our most popular options:
With traditional liposuction, subcutaneous fat deposits are vacuumed from beneath the skin using a hollow, stainless steel tube. The size of the tube, also called a cannula, determines how long the liposuction procedure will take. Although using a smaller cannula will result in a lengthier procedure, we use this method to keep the skin as smooth as possible. The different methods of liposuction include:
Performed under local anesthesia
Limited need for narcotic pain medication after surgery
Modified Tumescent Liposuction
Local anesthesia plus general anesthesia or heavy IV sedation
Heavy IV sedation is performed by anesthesiologist
Uses ultrasound to help reshape the body
Melts the fat to make it easier to remove
Tightens loose skin in treatment areas
At your consultation, Dr. Sarosy will be able to determine the appropriate method of liposuction for your desired results.
At San Diego Body Contouring, LipoSculpture isn’t just a cosmetic procedure – it’s an art. This type of liposuction leverages fat you naturally have to create the illusion of a defined look and to expose chiseled musculature. The treatment is performed by suctioning fat through very thin tubes and leaving small sections behind to produce the specific look you’re aiming for.
LipoSculpture is ideal for those who are athletic and close to their goal weight, but who’s newly toned muscles are buried beneath stubborn clusters of fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise. Patients often lose five to ten pounds with LipoSculpture, but the emphasis is more about defining muscles, not eliminating bulk.
What if we told you we could contour your body and blast fat cells without surgery and in just 25 minutes? With SculpSure, we can. SculpSure is a new, state-of-the-art body contouring system that uses light energy to reduce fat in hard-to-lose areas like the stomach, thighs, and love handles. Unlike liposuction and LipoSculpture, SculpSure is non-invasive and requires no anesthesia. Most patients report a tingling sensation as the system works to destroy up to 24 percent of treated fat cells in under a half hour.
After a SculpSure treatment, you will have fewer fat cells, but you won’t necessarily lose weight. The fat cells that are destroyed will never return – even without diet and exercise. However, the size of the remaining cells will change with weight gain and loss. For this reason, a healthy diet and workout regimen are recommended for the best results.
