Male Liposuction in Danville

Conveniently located to serve Danville, San Ramon, Dublin, Walnut Creek, and the entire San Francisco Bay Area.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to improve body contour and proportion by the removal of excess pockets of fatty tissue using narrow suction tubes through small incisions.

Often times, fat pockets are resistant to exercise and diet. Resistant pockets may be something that is genetically determined, and no amount of diet and exercise will get rid of them. We have even performed this procedure on many aerobics instructors and fitness trainers! Liposuction is not intended as a weight loss technique, but rather a procedure used to change the shape and contour of the body.

Also see how we can use liposuction to contour and shape your calves.

FAQ Liposuction

WHAT IS “TUMESCENT” LIPOSUCTION?

The tumescent technique is a liposuction method that can reduce post operative bruising, swelling and pain. Also, blood loss is minimized during tumescent liposuction due to the effects of the local anesthetic which is used. In the tumescent technique, areas of excess fat are injected with a large amount of anesthetic liquid before liposuction is performed. The liquid causes the compartments of fat to become swollen and firm or “tumesced.” The expanded fat compartments allow the liposuction cannula to travel smoothly beneath the skin as the fat is removed. This can give multiple benefits — extra precision for the surgeon, reduced loss of blood for the patient, and extended pain relief after surgery, which can reduce the need for pain medication immediately after surgery.

WHY DO PATIENTS WEAR A COMPRESSION GARMENT AFTER SURGERY?

After liposuction, swelling is expected. A compression garment helps reduce swelling and helps to reshape the tissue. Many patients see little difference or are even larger during the first week after surgery. The following week, patients usually begin to see results. After 2 months, the patient will be at about 80% of the result. Improvement continues until about 6 months after surgery when all of the swelling should be gone. I usually have patients wear their compression garment for 3 weeks, 24/7 and then 3 weeks during sleep.

CAN I STILL GAIN WEIGHT AFTER LIPOSUCTION?

We are born with a certain number of fat cells. During liposuction, fat cells are removed with the surgery. The remaining fat cells get bigger when you get bigger and get smaller when you get smaller. If you maintain your weight, the fat should not come back to the liposuctioned areas. If you put on weight, it will more likely to be distributed more evenly over the body and less likely to go to your ‘trouble zones’.

WILL I STILL HAVE CELLULITE OR RIPPLING AFTER LIPOSUCTION?

The aim and goal of surgery is to improve one’s appearance as it relates to shape and volume. The degree and the magnitude of one’s cellulite and rippling prior to surgery will affect the post-operative outcome. In mild to moderate cases, the cellulite and rippling is usually improved with the surgery. But, no promises can be made regarding cellulite. Liposuction improves the overall shape of the body in addition to making it smaller.
