About Liposuction in San Diego

Dr. Tom Pousti specializes in tumescent liposuction.

Before liposuction surgery begins, San Diego Plastic Surgeon Tom Pousti, M.D., will mark the areas that will be shaped with liposuction while you are standing. In every surgery Dr. Pousti performs, safety is a priority; careful attention is paid to your vital signs and the volume of fatty tissue removal.

Your liposuction procedure will usually last anywhere from 1 to 3 hours depending on the number of areas that will be treated with liposuction and the volume of tissue to be removed. Liposuction is generally performed in an outpatient operating suite. Makring Liposuciton Patient in San Diego

Incisions for the procedure are generally one quarter inch in length and are placed in inconspicuous skin folds with minimal or no shaving of the patients hair. All sutures that Dr. Tom Pousti makes are closed carefully. After your surgery

you will wake up wearing a compressive garment over the areas treated with liposuction for about 3 to 4 weeks to help with the swelling.
