Liposuction is always at the top of the list of the most frequently performed cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. It is a fairly simple procedure that can be performed in an outpatient setting with a few days recovery.

While no substitute for proper diet and exercise, Liposuction can provide selective removal of problem spots. Unlike weight loss, where the fat leaves in a genetically programmed order, patients who elect to have Liposuction can choose the areas where they would like the fat to vacate.

Fat Reduction with Liposuction Video Presentation

Last month, on KRON4’s Body Beautiful, I had the opportunity to discuss, several important topics in Plastic Surgery including, Liposuction. Host, Janelle Marie and I discuss the indications for liposuction and the methods used for the selective removal of disproportionate fat. The conversation is illustrated with several sets of Liposuction Before and After Pictures. Body Beautiful is a live show, so anyone watching can call in and have their questions answered. The (415) number shown during the broadcast is only for the live show, but if you have Liposuction Questions, call my San Francisco Bay Area Plastic Surgery office directly at (925) 943-6353.

Liposuction Before and After Picture

The amount of Liposuction can range widely, but in general, fewer than five liters are removed at one time to enhance the safety and predictability of your procedure. As discussed in the previous segment from Body Beautiful, Gynecomastia is often treated with a combination of liposuction and excision.
