In San Francisco, liposuction has become an increasingly popular way for people to contour their bodies and reduce fat deposits in their thighs, buttocks, and mid sections. The San Francisco Bay Area is home to some of the nation's foremost liposuction experts, with many of these elite plastic surgeons serving as part of the Plastic Surgery Portal network. Not surprisingly, many locals have turned to these board certified professionals for their own liposuction procedures.
Generally, liposuction is designed to sculpt the body by removing fatty deposits from problem areas like the thighs, buttocks, stomach and other areas that seem to have excess cellulite or bulges.
Liposuction is an outpatient procedure that only requires local anesthesia for the patient. It is a relatively painless process that promotes a quick healing time. To complete a liposuction procedure, the doctor inserts a fat extractor, which is stainless steel hollow tube, into the fatty deposits between the skin and the muscles to break up the fat deposits. Then a vacuum of sorts extracts the fat from the patient’s body. San Francisco, also, offers relatively new plastic surgery treatments like SmartLipo and VASER LipoSelection. These are considered less invasive than traditional liposuction.
In San Francisco, there are many choices for people when it comes to deciding on liposuction. It is important to research your plastic surgeon prior to your procedure. The beauty however, is that once the procedure has been completed the results will be immediate and phenomenal. Imagine walking on Fisherman’s Warf with a newly sculpted body thanks to your skilled surgeon’s liposuction procedure.
With a quality liposuction procedure, you will notice immediate results that will have you showing off your new body in no time. The fat deposits will be reduced, with inches trimmed away from your figure, allowing for easier movement and a more pleasing aesthetic appearance. While many people have several problem areas, it is not unheard of for patients in San Francisco to have liposuction on just one area of the body.
Prices for liposuction procedures will vary in San Francisco from plastic surgeon to plastic surgeon. Typically the cost of liposuction is fairly reasonable and changes depending on who is doing the procedure and how many areas you want to have liposuction on. The cost can range anywhere from $1500 to $7500 per area for the procedure, but you'll want to meet with your plastic surgeon personally before determining your own budget.
It is important to note that liposuction is good for those who have trouble areas that they are looking to improve the contour of. Liposuction is not a good choice as a treatment for obesity. In San Francisco you will have difficulty finding a plastic surgeon to perform liposuction on an obese patient. There are significant postoperative risks in removing more the 8 to 10 pounds of fat in one day. Therefore, liposuction is not a good choice as a method of weight loss. For those looking to eliminate smaller fat depsoits, however, it can prove ideal.
