Liposuction in Oakland
We know how annoying it can be to have localized fat deposits that stubbornly refuse to go away through diet and exercise. The fact is that these unwanted deposits exist because some of us are genetically predisposed to fat accumulating in certain areas, such as:
But don’t worry, as help is at hand. With a liposuction procedure done by experienced plastic surgeons Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis, you can finally get rid of this unwanted fat and feel better about your body.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis perform at their Oakland clinic. They have extensive experience in this body sculpting procedure.
Liposuction is most effective after you have reached a stable weight, if you have good skin tone, and if you’ve already tried diet or exercise but found it didn’t get rid of localized unwanted fat. It’s important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, but rather a way to improve the shape of your body.
Liposuction in Oakland, California, is performed under either local or general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis make tiny, precise incisions that will be less than ¼ of an inch long and well-hidden. Small, delicate tubes called cannulas are inserted, and the fat is removed. Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis carefully target the areas of fat removed to accurately sculpt the body.
Types of liposuction Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis offer
There is more than just one liposuction modality. Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis perform a variety of liposuction techniques, which are:
- Standard Tumescent Liposuction
- Power Assisted Liposuction
- Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction
- Laser Assisted Liposuction
The technique used will be tailored to the uniqueness of your body and will be discussed during an in-depth consultation.
Booking a consultation with your Oakland liposuction surgeon
Patient satisfaction is Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis’s top concern, along with safety. For the best results, you must have realistic expectations about your procedure. A thorough consultation will be performed at their Oakland plastic surgery practice. They will explain to you what liposuction is and what type of liposuction best meets your body sculpting goals.
Other aesthetic body contouring procedures
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive way to remove unwanted localized fat deposits. With this procedure, there are no sutures, no surgery, and no downtime. You can return to work the same day of your treatment.
What is the recovery period after liposuction?
Recovery time after liposuction is typically very short. Most patients return to work in a week. Fat removed with liposuction will not grow back; however, weight gain can cause new fat to be deposited in different areas. Maintaining a stable body weight with a healthy lifestyle is a very important way to keep your body looking trim. To ensure a speedy recovery, Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis encourage all of their patients to engage in walking after surgery.
Claiming that she inherited “Italian saddlebags” from her grandmother, this 50-year-old woman told us, “My one regret is that I did not have the surgery sooner.” She added, “Yes, you can do liposuction at my age and get great results.”
“I am pretty active and 57 years young. I wanted my buttock area to stand out. Liposuction of my waistline gave me more curvature. I am happy I had the procedure. Recovery was easy and my friends say I look great. They think its boot camp.”
