Liposuction in La Jolla
There are some parts of the body that are stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise, no matter how much you go to the gym or how diligent you are with making smart nutritional choices. In these cases, liposuction provides an idea solution to sculpting sleeker contours.
Through fat removal treatment in San Diego with Dr. Pietraszek, patients achieve a more appealing body shape, free of the lumps and bumps caused by areas of fat accumulation. Liposuction helps patients feel more confident in their appearances with even small changes to fat distribution.
Uses for Liposuction
While many patients associate liposuction with more commonly problematic areas on the body, such as butt, thighs, and stomach, this surgical fat removal process can be used in a multitude of places, including on the neck, arms, and even cheeks. Liposuction is the solution for a number of aesthetic issues and can be used for the following:
- Elimination of double-chin
- Reduction in the appearance of saddle-bags
- Slimming upper arms
- Creating a leaner midsection
- Smoothing lumps and bumps
Whether you are genetically pre-disposed to storing fat in a particular area on your body, or physical changes such as pregnancy have created bothersome issues, liposuction can help. This treatment should not be seen as a substitute for healthy habits, but is a highly useful tool in fine-tuning areas that remain fatty, such as bra rolls and flanks, or bulges on the stomach, thighs, and back.
Your Liposuction Procedure at our La Jolla Clinic
Dr. Pietraszek takes your needs into consideration at every step, to ensure you see the results you want when you look in the mirror. During your consultation, Dr. Pietraszek goes over any and all areas of the body that you would like to target for fat removal. With these goals in mind, our plastic surgeon can determine how long your procedure will take and what you can expect during recovery.
Dr. Pietraszek uses a tumescent liposuction technique. He injects a solution that hydrates the fat within a patient's body so it is easily extracted. Tumescent liposuction has two techniques that are common among surgeons: wet and super wet.
In both wet and super wet procedures, Dr. Pietraszek injects a fat-hydrating solution, making it easier to remove from the patient's target area. This injection makes it less likely for the patient to bleed, and also diminishes the chances of complications during surgery, due to the solution's intrinsic quality to constrict capillaries. As an added benefit, this procedure results in minimal bruising
The result is a more proportioned figure through a surgical process that is less invasive than other cosmetic surgeries and proven as effective, compared to topical fat removal treatments with hand-held technology.
