We all experience life differently, including how our bodies store fat. Factors including genetics, the birth of a baby or extreme weight loss can impact the appearance of the body. You may eat right, exercise daily and live a healthy lifestyle, but stubborn pockets of excess fat accumulating on your body just won’t go away.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical body contouring procedure used to minimize accumulations of unwanted fat. It targets fatty deposits that typically do not respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction can safely give you a slimmer, more youthful and contoured body appearance.
How Much Fat Can Be Removed?
Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. Liposuction works best if you are close to an ideal body weight. The amount of fat that can be removed varies patient to patient. Liposuction produces the best results for those who have retained a good level of skin elasticity, so the skin will mold itself to your slimmer body contour.
What Areas of The Body Can Be Improved With Liposuction?
San Diego plastic surgeon, Dr. Reza Sadrian will work with you to determine the areas of your body where liposuction might be appropriate, but typical areas of the body that can be improved include:
- Muffin Top
- Love Handles
- Outer Thighs or Saddlebags
- Double Chin
- Upper Back Along the Bra Strap
- Under Arm “Wings”

When you choose Sadrian Plastic Surgery, you can feel confident that your body shaping procedure is in the hands of a board-certified doctor with almost two decades of experience. He is educated on the most advanced liposuction techniques to ensure that the procedure meets your expectations.
How Does The Procedure Work?
At Sadrian Plastic Surgery, we have multiple devices and techniques for performing liposuction.
Generally, liposuction involves inserting a thin hollow metal instrument called a cannula through small incisions in the area to be treated to break up and extract excess fat. A suction system extracts the excess fat from the targeted zone. Liposuction for a larger body area may be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia along with intravenous sedation for patient comfort, but you can return home after treatment. The length of time you will need to spend in at our clinic will depend on the number of areas being treated, but you can usually expect two to four hours.
How Do I Choose The Right Plastic Surgeon?
The success of any cosmetic procedure is based upon the skills and experience of the plastic surgeon. Ask questions. Find out how many treatments your doctor performs a week and look over before and after images, so you have a real-world idea of what to expect.
