Liposuction Treatment & Specials in San Diego
Unfortunately, exercise and diet alone cannot “spot reduce” fat in just one area of the body. The good news is that liposuction can. This popular cosmetic procedure targets your most stubborn trouble zones to eliminate bulging fat pockets and reveal a smooth, sculpted look.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is a type of cosmetic surgery that vacuums out subcutaneous fat deposits from beneath the skin using a small, thin, stainless steel tube called a cannula. During liposuction, Dr. Sarosy will move the cannula around under your skin to suction away excess fat and improve the contours of your body. To achieve the best results, Dr. Sarosy always uses the smallest cannula and multiple tiny incisions for enhanced precision and a smooth, natural shape.
At San Diego Body Contouring, we offer several different types of liposuction treatment to help you achieve your specific goals. All procedures are performed at our San Diego office in our accredited operating room.
Tumescent liposuction involves injecting the treatment area with a diluted local anesthetic. The combination of saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine causes the treatment area to become swollen and firm, reducing blood loss during the procedure and making it easier for Dr. Sarosy to remove a great amount of fat.
Modified tumescent liposuction
Modified tumescent liposuction uses the local anesthetic of tumescent liposuction plus general anesthesia or heavy intravenous (IV) sedation. In our office, heavy IV sedation is always administered by a licensed anesthesiologist. Modified tumescent liposuction is often used on larger treatment areas to minimize pain and discomfort during the procedure.
Tickle liposuction is different than traditional liposuction because the cannula is operated by air and doesn’t apply heat, greatly improving patient comfort. Once inserted through a small incision, the cannula uses high-frequency vibration to liquefy fat deposits while simultaneously suctioning the fat out, making the procedure shorter than other liposuction methods. Because there is no heat generated during tickle liposuction, unwanted fat can be harvested and used for fat transplantation.
Many patients ask us how much weight they’ll lose after a liposuction treatment. The goal of liposuction is not to lose extra pounds – it’s about contouring the body and losing inches. This makes the treatment ideal for people who have reached their target weight but want to reduce localized pockets of fat on the arms, thighs, or abdomen for a boost in confidence.
