Temecula Liposuction

Unwanted fat deposits can collect anywhere on the body, causing damage to your self-esteem. Often, these pockets of fat are resistant to any amount of diet or exercise. Liposuction reduces these unwanted fat pockets and offers reliable body contouring results that last. Men and women who are suffering insecurities stemming from their excess pockets of fat can benefit from the individualized results offered by liposuction at Coastal Plastic Surgery in Temecula.

What Can Liposuction Achieve?

ImprovedBody Contour

The presence of unwanted pockets of fat can be damaging to your confidence and morale. Many liposuction patients turn to the procedure because they are frustrated that clothing and bathing suits do not fit the way they would like them to. Liposuction removes stubborn pockets of fat so that you can show off your toned, slim body contour and finally wear the clothes you’ve been wanting.


Every person is born with a certain number of fat cells. When you gain weight, you are enlarging the cells, not increasing their numbers. The same goes for when you lose weight through diet and exercise. When you lose weight naturally, your fat cells are shrinking, but you’re not losing them. Liposuction, on the other hand, eliminates unwanted fat cells for true fat reduction. The fat cells removed by liposuction cannot multiply or reproduce; instead, they are gone for good.


Every individual who turns to liposuction is starting at a different place. Because no two bodies are alike, Coastal Plastic Surgeons in Temecula hand-tailors your liposuction procedure so that you can achieve optimal results. With this treatment, you choose where you want to eliminate stubborn fat pockets and which areas you want to define and highlight.

Your Liposuction Journey

Treatment Areas

Liposuction can be applied nearly anywhere on your body that is suffering from the presence of unwanted excess fat. During your consultation, Dr. Batra will listen to your aesthetic goals and evaluate your liposuction needs to customize your surgical plan. Common treatment areas include:

  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Neck and jowls
  • Chest
  • Upper arms
  • Bra line and back
  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Flanks and hips
  • Buttocks
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Knees, calves, and ankles

Procedure Details

Liposuction is commonly performed under general anesthesia. However, local anesthesia with sedation may be available in some situations. The type of anesthesia will depend on the size and location of the treatment area. During this procedure, tiny incisions are made near the location of the unwanted fat and a small tube, known as a cannula, is inserted. From here, laser technology or mechanical agitation is used to loosen fat cells and suction them away. The incisions are then closed. Liposuction is an outpatient procedure; however, as anesthesia is used during your treatment, a driver must be present to get you home and stay with you for the first night.


At our Murrieta location, we offer liposuction as a standalone treatment. While ideal results can be achieved with liposuction alone, many patients choose to combine their liposuction with another cosmetic procedure to further enhance their results. Some of these procedures include:

  • Tummy tuck: Tummy tuck surgery tightens loose abdominal muscles and skin laxity to reveal a smoother, tauter abdomen. Liposuction is included with your tummy tuck to remove fat cells for additional abdominal sculpting
  • Male breast reduction: Some men develop a conditional known as gynecomastia, which is the presence of excess breast tissue or fat. For patients whose condition is due to excess fat, liposuction can be employed to help them achieve a defined, masculine, chiseled chest.
  • Arm lift: An arm lift tightens and firms the upper arms by removing excess skin. In most cases, liposuction is performed during an arm lift to remove unwanted pockets of fat.
  • Thigh lift: A thigh lift removes skin from the inner or outer thighs. Liposuction is performed to provide additional body contouring.
  • Mommy Makeover: A Mommy Makeover is a combination procedure that allows women to rejuvenate their bodies after having children. Liposuction removes unwanted fat from the body that accumulated after pregnancy and childbirth.

Easing Your Concerns

After your liposuction procedure, compression garments will be wrapped over the treatment sites to reduce swelling, encourage blood flow, and aid in the healing process. These garments are typically worn for a few days. Most patients return to work and their normal activities within a week.
Liposuction is performed under anesthesia so that there is no pain during the procedure. Following treatment, patients will experience swelling and soreness in the treated area. Should this be bothersome to you, oral pain medication will be prescribed. All swelling and discomfort should dissipate within a few weeks.
Liposuction does not require long incisions. The incisions made for liposuction are small and usually result in no post-operative scarring. To help with this, patients should keep their incision sites out of the sun and use silicone scar sheets to aid the healing process. Any resulting scars will fade with time.
The cost of your liposuction in Temecula will depend on many factors including the size of your treatment area or areas, anesthesia fees, surgical fees, and facility fees. The staff at Coastal Plastic Surgeons will provide you with a price estimate during your consultation.
