Liposuction can reduce or remove unwanted fat deposits throughout the body, making it the most efficient method of body contouring available today. Over time, the body begins to store fat in a variety of displeasing areas. It is nearly impossible to melt stubborn localized fat using traditional at-home methods because diet and exercise do not spot treat trouble areas. Patients who desire a slim and sculpted figure tailored to their individual aesthetic goals may benefit from the modern liposuction techniques performed at Coastal Plastic Surgery in San Diego.

Eliminating fat deposits with liposuction can often give patients the results they are looking for without requiring them to lose a massive amount of weight.

The cannulas loosen fat cells and suction them out of the body. Laser technology or mechanical agitation may be used to reduce trauma to the surrounding tissues.
While liposuction can be performed as a standalone procedure, many patients discover that they can achieve more precise enhancement by combining it with other procedures. Liposuction may be performed in conjunction with:
