Description

Liposuction surgery has now become the most commonly performed operation in Plastic Surgery and is especially popular among our male patients in the San Diego and Riverside areas. This procedure is used to improve your figure in either one specific area, or in several areas. Modern liposculpture is both a scientific procedure and an artistic one, incorporating a concern for the patient’s well-being and health during and after surgery with a genuine artistic sculpting of tissues.

Who Will Benefit From The Procedure

Patients seeking liposuction for improvement of body contour have generally tried multiple diets and exercise programs, to no avail. Certain problem areas remain. It is important to realize that suction lipectomy is not a method of weight reduction in itself, as relatively little weight of fat is removed from the body when the surgery is performed safely. The procedure is designed specifically to improve body contour. Therefore, it is important for you to be at or close to your “set point” weight. The problem area for men is usually the “love handles”.

To be safe, the surgeon must not exceed the safe limits of fat removal or administration of local anesthetic, and always consider the health of the patient before proceeding with the procedure.

The Surgical Procedure

The procedure varies between 1 and 3 hours, depending upon how much work is to be done in various areas of the body. Liposuction is generally performed in an outpatient operating suite. Incisions for the procedure are generally one quarter inch in length and are placed in inconspicuous skin folds with minimal or no shaving of hair. Modern liposculpture is nearly circumferential, rather than just in the problem areas.

What To Expect After Surgery

The initial week is the period during which any pain, swelling and bruising appear to be at their maximum. Between week one and week two, it is not uncommon to feel somewhat fatigued and during approximately the third week even mildly depressed.

Resumption Of Physical Activities

You will generally be able to begin resumption of your normal activities in three to six weeks. Patients are back to work in 3-7 days.

Patient Testimonial

I am a medical malpractice attorney, and recently had liposuction performed by Dr. Tom Pousti. Because of my professional experience, I’ve seen the good doctors, the bad and some ugly results on people who come to me as a last resort. They should have gone to Dr. Pousti first, for the reasons I did, and you should.

Some plastic surgeons, in Beverly Hills, tout themselves as “doctors to the stars”. I think a much more impressive byline would be “doctor to the lawyers”. Many a doctor would politely decline to perform an elective procedure on a lawyer for obvious reasons. Dr. Pousti, however, can boast of many lawyers who are his satisfied patients. And let me tell you, it takes a very confident and competent doctor to cut one of us!

Dr. Pousti is more than just competent. He is the very best plastic surgeon. He has top training, experience, employs cutting edge (no pun intended!), technical skills and performs artistry (a requirement as a plastic surgeon). Equally important, he has a wonderful bedside manner and he truly cares about his patients and their satisfaction. His staff is professional, as is the Grossmont surgical center where procedures are performed.
