Sometimes, no matter how well you diet or how often you exercise, you’ll end up with fat deposits that just refuse to go away. Here at Togba Ellis Plastic Surgery in Oakland, California, we understand how frustrating that can be. That’s why we offer liposuction services to our patients.

Let’s look at what it is, how it works, and what it can do for you.

What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the country’s most popular plastic surgery procedures. It’s used to remove fat deposits and is most effective if you have firm skin and have reached a stable weight. To be clear, liposuction is not a weight-loss alternative. You still need regular exercise and healthy eating to maintain an optimal weight. Instead, liposuction aids those who can’t get rid of certain areas of fat.

How does Liposuction work?

It’s a pretty simple procedure. Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis inserts a small cannula (tube) into tiny incisions (which will be hidden after the procedure) and through suction, gently removes fat. This helps sculpt your body to a more desired shape.

What can Liposuction do for me?

As mentioned above, liposuction is a great way to finish sculpting your body if you are already at your desired weight, but you still have stubborn areas of fat that refuse to go away. It can help you achieve the body image you’ve worked hard for, and it’s highly effective.

If you think liposuction can help you, or you’re interested in a consultation, call us today at 888-811-4829.
