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

The incision made to allow this insertion is very small and can be easily hidden. The cannula will be eased back and forth under the skin, gently vacuuming out fat cells. The incision will then be closed. Depending upon the size of area designated for treatment, the entire liposuction procedure typically takes less than two hours to complete. Liposuction is often performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia.

This San Diego liposuction patient was concerned about the shape of her abdomen. She had extended tummy tuck and liposuction and the sides. The abdominoplasty procedure begins with an incision made from hip to hip, typically placed just below the bikini-line. Dr. Jaibaji will make this incision as discreetly as possible, and any residual scarring can be easily hidden under clothing or swimwear. Dr. Jaibaji will separate the navel from the skin and then tighten the underlying muscles, a step that narrows the waistline and firms up the midsection. Excess fat is removed, the navel is repositioned, and the skin is pulled taut around the stomach. The incision is then closed with sutures. The entire procedure typically takes about two to four hours to complete and is usually performed under general anesthesia. A tummy tuck can be performed on an outpatient basis. It is essential that you arrange for someone to take you home and stay with you after your extended tummy tuck procedure.
