Cosmetic Surgery Highlight: Body Contouring Liposuction in Santa Barbara

Have you exercised and eaten well all winter to look good for Spring and Summer but still have areas on your body that you are just not satisfied with? For some people, certain areas of the body and face are resistant to diet and exercise. You are not alone! The good news is that body contouring through liposuction is extremely effective to get rid of those unwanted bulges.

Liposuction is not a remedy for weight loss, instead it is very effective for spot reduction. At Cosmetic Surgery Center in Santa Barbara, Dr. Perkins often treats the abdomen, flanks (“love handles”), inner thighs, outer thighs (“saddle bags”), knees, arms, and the lower face/neck area. With liposuction by Dr. Perkins there is no need to worry about scars from the surgery. Incisions are small and hidden in natural creases such as the belly button and within the hair area and are normally closed with one or two stitches.
Our patients comfort level is one of our primary concerns during and after the surgery. Liposuction is done under a combination of oral and intravenous sedation that keeps the patient comfortable and unaware and does not leave them with a “hangover” that often occurs when general anesthesia is used.
For most people, pain is minimal after liposuction and can be controlled with over-the-counter medication. A person can return to work anywhere between two to seven days, depending upon how strenuous your job is.
Call Cosmetic Surgery Center at 805.563.0000 for a liposuction consultation with Dr. Perkins.
