Rancho Cucamonga Liposuction

Take control of your curves with a little help from one of our talented cosmetic surgeons

It’s a rare few who aren’t bothered by a little bulge on the tummy, hips, or thighs—and sometimes, your workout and meal plan just aren’t making a difference. Even small pockets of stubborn fat can make it hard to feel confident, whether you’re struggling to find clothes that fit right or feel that your body is out of proportion.

Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure year after year, for good reason: it simply works. By precisely removing excess fat to reshape specific parts of the body, your cosmetic surgeon can provide you with lasting results so you can enjoy a slimmer, more proportionate look.

Am I a good candidate for liposuction?

If you’re wondering if liposuction is a good choice for you, your best resource is the expertise of a fellowship trained cosmetic surgeon and diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. We offer private consultations for liposuction in Rancho Cucamonga to help patients explore which options are most appropriate for them, discuss any concerns they may have about surgery, and get to know our team and experienced surgeons, Dr. Jacob Haiavy, Dr. Irene Tower, and Dr. Emma Ryan.

Typically, anyone who desires a slimmer physique, has adequate skin elasticity, and is in good health is a good candidate for liposuction. Liposuction is a great solution for those who are looking for a proportionate body contour but have struggled with diet and exercise-resistant pockets of fat.

Liposuction can be used virtually anywhere on the body, including:

  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Abdomen
  • Neck and jowls
  • Arms
  • Back and bra rolls

How is fat removed during liposuction?

Liposuction is a relatively straightforward and simple procedure in the hands of one of our experienced cosmetic surgeons. Depending on where your problem areas are and how much fat needs to be removed, your procedure will be performed either with local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Small, inconspicuous incisions will be made around the area to be treated, through which a special, hollow tube called a cannula will be inserted and used to suction out fat.

Incisions are then steri-stripped closed and dressed with surgical bandages. After a brief recovery in our Rancho Cucamonga cosmetic surgery center, you’ll be allowed to return home with a designated driver.

What is liposuction recovery like?

Most of our patients are surprised to find that liposuction recovery is relatively quick and comfortable after initial recovery. You can expect to be moving immediately after your surgery, missing only about four to seven days of work as long as your job isn’t strenuous.

Some discomfort is normal, particularly at the incision sites and surrounding areas; we will prescribe pain medication to help you manage this discomfort. Normal activities and exercise can be resumed in about three weeks. You will be able to see the full benefits of your liposuction over the course of the next six to twelve months. We will also provide you with post-operative care instructions to help you have a quicker recovery time.

Advanced liposuction techniques at Inland Cosmetic Surgery

At Inland Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a few different liposuction techniques that can help us provide you with optimal results, less trauma to the body, and a quicker recovery. During your consultation, we’ll discuss which options may be best suited for you and your ultimate goals.

VASER ultrasound liposuction

The VASER liposuction technology utilizes ultrasound to provide exceptionally smooth and shapely results with low to minimal discomfort. Liposelection by VASER allows us to work with such precision that we can shape delicate areas, like the inner thighs, arms, chin, and neck while leaving important tissues such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue relatively undamaged.

The ultrasound technology used in VASER help break up fat deposits for easier removal, making it much less traumatic to the body and, in turn, lessening downtime.

Tickle liposuction

Tickle Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure that removes fat and sculpts areas of your body using a vibrating cannula. The name comes from the tickling sensation that patients say they experience during surgery. Developed in Europe and internationally known as Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture (NIL), tickle lipo can be performed in just one to two hours.

In addition to a shorter procedure time, the vibration used in tickle lipo helps disrupt fat for easier removal.
