Liposuction – How to Get Safe Predictable Smart Liposuction (Part 3 of 4)

Posted April 27, 2010 in Home, Liposuction, Post-Bariatric Surgery (After Weight Loss), Videos

In this segment from KRON’s Body Beautiful, I talk about ways to get safe and predictable Liposuction. Are the latest technologies the best? Some are more controversial than others. There is still something very beneficial about seeing a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon before choosing any treatment.

Nothing Beats An In Person Consultation

With a consultation, I can provide you with a list of treatment options, and match the most appropriate treatment with your goals. More importantly, I can get to know you and what the problem is. I can provide much more targeted treatments, after I know where we are starting, what your perceptions are, and where you would like to be after we are done. For a personalized, and private, consultation appointment call (925) 943-6353 today.

How Many Type Of Liposuction Are There?

Liposuction currently comes in many flavors. Whenever there are multiple solutions, either there are multiple problems, or no one solution is clearly superior. Most liposuction problems are consistent, but there are a few instances that need special treatment to get the desired goals. My patients come to me, because I have years of training and experience. While I try to share this information via the SanFranciscoPlasticSurgeryBlog, you can’t get all the information necessary from reading articles.

As my patient, you need to know, and trust, that I will use the smallest hammer it takes to get the job done. For disproportionate fat pockets, most the time, tumescent liposuction is going to get the job done; however, it is not the only option. I like to keep up with all the latest technology, so in the cases where the technology has something to offer, I can choose it as the best treatment. For the situations when liposuction is not going to be enough, I can offer you more, discuss the options, and take it up a notch when necessary. This is the advantage you get, when you see someone fully trained and dedicated to all aspects of Cosmetic Plastic Surgery.
