Liposuction/liposculpture removes targeted excess fat deposits. It is not a weight loss procedure and is not designed for individuals that are seriously overweight or obese. The procedure may improve the shape and contour of several areas of the body, including the:

  • San Diego Liposuction DoctorAbdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Back/ bra line
  • Upper arms
  • Neck

Dr. Bucko meets with each patient individually to discuss their body contouring needs. The patient is asked to identify problematic areas of their figure, and should describe their ideal cosmetic outcome. Dr. Bucko performs a physical examination of the patient’s body, noting factors such as the amount of excess fat and the elasticity of the skin. If he determines liposuction/liposculpture is a suitable treatment option, he suggests a plan of correction. In some cases, Dr. Bucko recommends an alternative body contouring option — for example, tummy tuck or body lift — if the patient has additional concerns such as saggy, stretched-out skin or damaged musculature. Dr. Bucko also offers non-surgical CoolSculpting as an alternative to liposuction/liposculpture treatment for some patients.

During the procedure, excess fat cells are removed with a thin tube and gentle suction through tiny incisions. Dr. Bucko is careful not to overcorrect or under-correct the area; the right amount of fat must be removed in order to produce a result that looks balanced and proportional. Dr. Bucko’s experience as a professional sculptor assures an artistic approach to the procedure.

Once the fat cells are removed, they will not grow back, as long as the patient maintains their weight and healthy lifestyle habits. Many people that have liposuction/liposculpture actually find that the fat removal makes exercising a more pleasant experience, so they are motivated to maintain their new look.

Liposuction/liposculpture can enhance the results of another body contouring procedure, such as tummy tuck or thigh lift. Dr. Bucko discusses this possibility during the consultative phase.
