Most men and women have an area of the body in which they just can’t address fat deposits. This may be on the abdominal area, the thighs, the arms, the love handles, the chin, or the jowls. All of these areas can benefit from an effective treatment by a surgeon called liposuction.
Dr. Gerald Bock of Stockton uses liposuction to target specific areas of the body in which fat tends to accumulate. Many of our patients have tried diet and exercise and they are still unable to address excess fat in certain areas of the body. This is when liposuction can help. It is a body contouring solution and it is not meant for weight loss. It can help patients lose several inches on the body so clothes fit better and patients feel more confident in their own skin. Using this method, patients can treat areas that have become problematic.
At California Skin and Laser Center, our team of professionals can determine if patients are appropriate candidates for liposuction. Those who are at their ideal body weight but are having difficulties addressing specific areas of fat may benefit greatly from liposuction. At our practice, we utilize tumescent liposuction, which avoids the need for general anesthetics, speeds up recovery time, is safer, and can be less invasive than traditional methods of liposuction with a large cannula, commonly used at conventional plastic surgery practices. Many patients love the ease of tumescent liposuction and find it to be a lot less invasive than other means of removing unwanted fat. For patients who want a non-invasive alternative, we may suggest CoolSculpting, a method of cryolipolysis also available in our practice.
