Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that removes localized areas of fat from the body. The surgery can be performed in conjunction with many other procedures, including a tummy tuck, breast enhancement or a facelift. At Dr. Jaibaji’s practice in San Diego or Coronado, liposuction is usually a same day outpatient procedure.

When to Choose Liposuction 

Liposuction is beneficial for someone who is in good health and has worked hard to get in shape. They lose some extra pounds, but can’t seem to get rid of those troublesome deposits of fat in key areas, no matter how diligent and devoted they work at it.

Before and After Liposuction

Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and cannot be used as a substitute to other weight control remedies. If you exceed your ideal body weight by 30-50 percent, you may only be a candidate for limited fat removal due to safety concerns. Dr. Jaibaji will likely recommend that you wait to undergo liposuction, or undergo staged procedures.

Liposuction can address virtually any area of the body, including the:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Legs
  • Thighs
  • Flanks (love-handles)
  • Back
  • Face
  • Chin
  • Neck
