  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Back/bra line
  • Upper arms
  • Neck

How Much Does Liposuction Cost In San Diego?

As part of your free consultation, we explain the costs associated with your personalized treatment and skin care plan. Multiple financing options are available, and you can apply before your consultation.

How Is Liposuction Performed?

During the procedure, excess fat cells are removed with a thin tube and gentle suction through tiny incisions. Dr. Mozaffari is careful not to overcorrect or under-correct the area; the right amount of fat must be removed in order to produce a result that looks balanced and proportional. Dr. Mozaffari’s experience assures an artistic approach to the procedure.

What Results Can I Expect from Liposuction?

If you take a look at our liposuction before and after, thighs, abdomen, and other areas of the body look slimmer after liposuction. If the procedure is performed alone, you may have some swelling and tenderness. Liposuction can also be combined with other surgeries. In these cases, recovery is more intensive. We explain liposuction post op care during your consultation.

Are the Results of Liposuction Permanent?

Once the fat cells are removed as highlighted in our liposuction before and after pics, they will not grow back, as long as the patient maintains their weight and healthy lifestyle habits. Many people that have liposuction actually find that the fat removal makes exercising a more pleasant experience, so they are motivated to maintain their new look.

Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Dr. Mozaffari meets with each patient individually to discuss their body contouring needs. The patient is asked to identify problematic areas of their figure, and should describe their ideal cosmetic outcome. Dr. Mozaffari performs a physical examination of the patient’s body, noting factors such as the amount of excess fat and the elasticity of the skin. If he determines liposuction is a suitable treatment option, he suggests a plan of correction.

In some cases, Dr. Mozaffari recommends an alternative body contouring option — for example, tummy tuck or body lift — if the patient has additional concerns such as saggy, stretched-out skin or damaged musculature. Dr. Mozaffari also offers non-surgical CoolSculpting® as an alternative to liposuction treatment for some patients.
