LIPOSUCTION SAN DIEGO
Liposuction San Diego/Chula Vista is a popular procedure because it is designed to contour the body and target excess fatty tissue in trouble areas that diet and exercise cannot reach. This procedure is ideal for both men and women. It can address aesthetic problems concerning the hips, buttocks, flanks, thighs, arms, abdomen, face, neck and other places. Due to its diverse applications, liposuction is often complimentary to mommy makeovers, Brazilian buttlifts, and other fat grafting.
ABOUT LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE
Liposuction is a simple procedure that can help improve the overall body contour. Multiple areas can be targeted with this procedure to achieve desired results.
The goal is to reduce fat cells while reshaping and improving the overall body contour. Many times individuals choose to combine a liposuction procedure with a tummy tuck procedure to attain their ideal body goal.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR LIPOSUCTION
Dr. Talebzadeh will have a consultation with each patient to assess their candidacy for liposuction. He will perform a short exam of the area of concern, discuss the patient’s medical history and identify their ideal goals for this procedure. He will then create a customized treatment plan for the patient based on information gathered at this appointment. Dr. Talebzadeh will spend time educating the patient on all procedural details including the preparation, any necessary prescriptions and recovery process. He strives to remain a resource for his patients throughout their entire care at Eastlake Cosmetic Center.
It is important to be as healthy as possible to prepare for liposuction and avoid any complications. Patients should not smoke before or after this procedure. They should also notify the doctor of any preexisting medical conditions or medications they are taking. Patients should begin to implement a healthier lifestyle and habits to maintain results after the surgery. Patients should not eat the night before the procedure and follow all pre-procedural instructions given by Dr. Talebzadeh and his staff. Patients should make all necessary postprocedure arrangements before undergoing liposuction.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER SURGERY
After your procedure, you may experience swelling and throbbing in the targeted region. However, we will prescribe necessary medication to ease any discomfort you may be feeling. The first few days will be the most difficult, however in a few days you will notice a significant reduction in swelling.
You will be given garments that provide pressure to minimize any swelling and help the healing process. Results may be noticeable following surgery and will continue to improve as your body heals and swelling subsides. During your consultation, your cosmetic surgeon will provide further instructions for your recovery process.
What areas can be treated with liposuction?
Liposuction is used to remove fat from various areas of the body including:
What is the recovery process like?
It is common to experience bruising, swelling, and soreness for at least several weeks. We will prescribe medication to help control pain during your recovery as well as antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection.
Temporary tubes may be placed in the incisions to allow for proper fluid drainage. We will also provide you with compression garments to help reduce swelling and support the treated area during recovery.
Depending on the area, it may take several days or even weeks before you are able to return to work and resume normal activities.
What results can I expect from liposuction?
Once the swelling subsides following your procedure, results can be seen. Within several months, the treated area should slim and begin to look less bulky, with full results expected to appear after six months.
Though the results are permanent, they can be influenced by fluctuations in your weight as weight gain may affect your fat distribution and alter the results of treatment.
