Liposuction in San Rafael, CA
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction involves the removal of excess fat from certain parts of the body. It is done in an effort to help contour the body and make some areas more proportioned. This procedure is often chosen by people who have recently lost a great deal of weight, yet have not been able to tone problem areas with exercise alone. It is not intended as a method of weight loss.
How is Liposuction Performed?
Before a procedure is performed, a patient will undergo an exam to make sure there are no underlying health issues that would cause complications. On the day of the surgery, a local anesthesia will be administered, and then incisions will be made in the area. A physician will then use a small instrument known as a cannula to suction fat out of the body before closing the wound with sutures. Patients are allowed to return home shortly thereafter.
