Out of Town Patients

San Diego, California Liposuction Experience for Out of Town Patients

Many people fly in to San Diego from cities all over the country to have their liposuction procedure performed by Pacific Liposculpture.  With more than 15,000 procedures performed by our expert staff and thousands of radiant, happy patients to prove it, it's no wonder we are attracting men and women from all over the U.S.

To save on time and travel, Pacific Lipo offers an in-person consultation and procedure in the same day.  Also, our liposculpture procedures are minimally invasive so most of our patients will drive or fly back home the very same day of their procedure or the next day.  Our patients find that with the promotional prices we offer, they still save money when compared to local offices even after paying for travel expenses.  Additionally, follow up appointments can be conducted either over the phone or through email.  

In fact Pacific Lipo made the whole process easy! From the time I scheduled my appointment, arrived, the actual procedure, and the post-op care. They even provided a care package before I left the office, with everything I need! Even a taxi was called on my behalf. It couldn't have been easier. I am so happy and glad that I decided to go through Pacific Lipo. I am completely satisfied and I am already planning on coming back -Jennifer J. from Oakland, CA

Choosing the right technique - Is laser lipo the right choice for you?

In our increasingly beauty obsessed society, it seems like more of us are choosing to seek out cosmetic surgery to improve any flaws (whether real or perceived). Of these cosmetic procedures, one of the most popular is Laser Liposuction (also knows as Laser Lipo, Smart Lipo, Lunchtime Lipo, or Vaser Laser).
Laser Liposuction involves the use of a laser to "melt away" fatty deposits and then tightens the surrounding skin.  This technique was first discovered in Europe and has recently become FDA approved for use in the U.S.  Laser liposuction has been used for the past 10 years in South America, Europe, and Asia.  The procedure is typically done in an office setting and does not require the use of a general anesthetic.  A very small cannula, or tube, approximately 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm in diameter containing a laser fiber is inserted into the skin.  The cannula is moved back and forth delivering the laser's energy to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and easily drain away.  The fluid released from the fat cells is removed by the body's natural waste system.  The laser also causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately on contact, thus resulting in less bleeding and bruising. 

Some liposuctionists report that one of the advantages of laser liposuction is the fact that the probability of scarring, muscle damage, or pain tends to be smaller than more traditional liposuction methods.  As a result, the patient is usually able to return to work within 48-hours.  One of the disadvantages of laser liposuction is that it may only be useful on a limited variety of body areas.  These body parts include the neck, face, and arms.  Some patients do not report a dramatic enough in their shapes or skin tightening following laser liposuction is used in other areas such as the abdomen, thighs, back areas, or the love handles.  This may be due to today's lasers not being quite aggressive enough in creating a significant change in the thickness of the fat deposits for most body types.  There is also some doubt among liposuction specialists as to exactly how effective laser liposuction is when it comes to skin tightening.  That being said, laser liposuction can be an effective procedure for a small portion of liposuction candidates.

Pricing of this procedure varies a great deal depending on how much fat you want removed, which body part is being treated, or which office you seek treatment in.  Patients who are interested in this procedure should seek treatment in a facility that specializes in liposculpture.  It is much more likely that their results will be better compared to other less experienced offices and the pricing often times is more affordable.  Pricing to selecting any method of liposuction, one should contact a liposuction specialist to find out what this procedure can do for their particular problem area.

Upper, Lower Abdomen and Love Handles

Helping active, healthy people improve there shape with Liposculpture.  A local San Diego patient expresses her experience with Pacific Lipo -

I came to Pacific Lipo for help smoothing out my lower abdomen and getting rid of my love handles.  My body image means a lot to me. I work out at least 4 days a week. I do spin classes, lift weights, and eat colorful meals. I have always kept up with diet and exercise and my body just stopped responding in those areas. Rod had originally told me I did not have much to remove in my abdomen and to think about it.  Because of the great pricing and confidence I felt in Rod and the whole staff, I scheduled my procedure. The procedure was very quick and Rod made me feel comfortable the whole time.  I even had my favorite music playing in the background.  Stefani, Jasmine, Letty, Wendy, and Cristina are awesome and have been there for me every step of the way. I am a couple months post-op and couldn't be happier. My tummy is completely flat and my waistline is tiny!  Thank you Pacific Lipo! -Inaur M. from San Diego, CA

Are You A Good Candidate For Tumescent Lipo?

Tumescent anesthesia liposuction can be of great benefit for most people who have fatty deposits in areas of their bodies that have not responded well to dieting and exercise. However, the best candidates for tumescent liposuction are active, healthy persons of average weight and good skin tone, and who have never had a lipo procedure to the same body part. Overweight individuals can also benefit from tumescent liposuction, especially if they are in the process of exercising and losing weight. The tumescent liposuction technique should be judiciously used in the morbidly obese. Ideal patients have committed to healthier habits and do not consider liposuction to be a substitute for exercising. Your liposuction specialist should listen to your goals of the treatment to better ascertain whether you have realistic expectations for what liposuction can and cannot do. It is best that liposuction patients have no significant medical problems. Age by itself is not a significant factor in tumescent liposuction.

The best way to know if you are a good candidate for tumescent lipo is to schedule a consultation with a tumescent liposuction specialist.
