FAQ about San Diego Liposuction

Welcome to our section for FAQ about San Diego liposuction. First of all, let me give you a quick overview of liposuction. Basically, a doctor will make small incisions all over the area where he/she is working. Then, he/she will insert a small tube, called a canulla, which he/she will move around in order to dislodge and "suck" fat out of the body. The result is a smaller and smoother appearance of the problem area without diet or exercise. Keep in mind, however, the liposuction was designed for disproportional, problem areas that diet and exercise have not helped. It was NOT designed for overall weight reduction!

Once you've decided that liposuction is right for you, be sure to find a qualified surgeon. The ONLY way to be certain your doctor has had specialized training in cosmetic procedures is to make sure he is certified by ABPS, or the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Visit www.abplsurg.org for a list of surgeons in your area. Also, be wary of surgeons who promise magical results, do not speak of a procedure's risks, or are much less expensive than their counterparts.

Please remember that there is a wealth of knowledge out there, and you should take advantage of as much of it as you can. Be aware that, though rare, there can be serious complications resulting from this procedure, including death. Realize that there will be considerable swelling and it may take months to reach the figure you desired. The more information you have, the less likely you are to be shocked or disappointed when you wake up from the anesthesia. After all, a good patient is a well-informed one. Good luck!
