You eat healthy and get plenty of exercise. From running to cycling, lifting weights to yoga, you’ve tried it all and still nothing has helped you minimize trouble spots on your stomach, legs, arms, or back. You’re frustrated and want a doctor who can help you get the results you want, once and for all.
If this sounds familiar and you live in the Stockton, CA, region, you’re in luck. Dr. Gerald Bock is a skilled and respected dermatologist who offers a wide range of cosmetic dermatology procedures. From facial procedures and surgeries to surgical and non-surgical services for fat reduction, Dr. Bock offers his patients the right treatment to help them achieve the cosmetic results they want, and deserve.
Many patients who come to Dr. Bock after years of struggling with areas of exercise-resistant fat deposits aren’t sure what to expect. However, with his commitment to offering safer, more affordable, and less invasive treatment, many patients are pleased to find out that liposuction can give them the results they want in one session.
Liposuction is the process of removing fat cells from your body using suction. A small hollow tube, called a cannula, is inserted into the skin through very small incisions. As Dr. Bock moves the cannula under the skin, he can target specific areas and suction the fat out. Dr. Bock uses tumescent liposuction, which is an in-office procedure. During the procedure, patients are given a local anesthetic to ensure comfort.
One of the biggest advantages of liposuction is the results that patients achieve. While it cannot be substituted for a weight loss program, many patients find that their clothes fit better or they feel more comfortable wearing a bikini to the beach. Results are usually mildly noticeable at first but continue to appear as swelling in the area that was treated diminishes. Another benefit of liposuction is that most patients can return to their normal activities a few days following the procedure.
If you’ve tried everything else and are fed up with not being able to achieve the results you want, call the California Skin & Laser Center today to schedule a consultation. Dr. Bock will meet with you to discuss your desired results and determine if liposuction is right for you.
