Choosing a Liposuction Specialist in Stockton

Fat removal from Liposuction Specialist in Stockton

Congratulations! You’ve decided to take control of those stubborn deposits of fat that don’t respond to sensible diet and regular physical activity. CoolSculpting, our innovative, non-surgical fat reduction method, may be all you need to get sleek body contours in some areas, with no downtime. If you’d like a little more spot reduction, liposuction could be a great solution.

What should you consider when choosing a liposuction specialist in the Stockton, California area?


State qualifications for liposuction are loosely defined, so a doctor with basic surgical residency in nearly any medical sector is technically qualified. The doctor’s specialty may not as crucial as his technique, integrity, and safety record. However, Dr. Gerald Bock has extensive background in medical and cosmetic dermatology including training in liposuction. He is certified by the American Board of Dermatology in dermatology and dermatopathology. He also completed many hours of continuing studies and stringent testing to attain Fellowship in the American Academy of Dermatology.

Training and Experience

Liposuction has been around for a while, and Dr. Bock was the first physician to perform the procedure, in the mid 1980s. But equipment, techniques, aesthetic considerations, and patient care standards continue to evolve. Dr. Bock invests in the wellbeing of his patients with state of the art equipment and continuing education for himself and his team at California Skin & Laser Center. He personally administers liposuction treatment and oversees aftercare.


When selecting a doctor for this medical treatment, don’t be taken with marketing hype. The best plastic surgeon who does hundreds of facelift or breast augmentation surgeries each year may not have sufficient experience in liposuction to produce pleasing, predictable outcomes. It’s your body, your appearance, and your health at stake, so take time to research your options. Consider the doctor’s reputation in the medical industry, and in your local community.


In qualified hands, liposuction is safe and effective, but it is a medical procedure with the risks that accompany surgery. The specialist you choose for liposuction should understand and explain the dangers associated with treating multiple or large areas of the body or removing excessive volumes of fat in one day. The practice should have unsurpassed sterility standards and be prepared to handle a medical emergency.

Residents of the Stockton area are fortunate to have one of the best liposuction specialists in their own back yards – Dr. Bock. He and his team at California Skin & Laser Center have helped hundreds of women and men love their body images and look terrific in and out of clothes, with liposuction.
