Liposuction in Oakland
We know how annoying it can be to have localized fat deposits that stubbornly refuse to go away through diet and exercise. The fact is that these unwanted deposits exist because some of us are genetically predisposed to fat accumulating in certain areas, such as:
But don’t worry, as help is at hand. With a liposuction procedure done by experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph N. Togba, you can finally get rid of this unwanted fat and feel better about your body.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures Dr. Joseph N. Togba performs at his Oakland clinic. He has extensive experience in this body sculpting procedure.
Liposuction is most effective after you have reached a stable weight, if you have good skin tone, and if you’ve already tried diet or exercise but found it didn’t get rid of localized unwanted fat. It’s important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, but rather a way to improve the shape of your body.
Liposuction in Oakland, California, is done under either local or general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Joseph N. Togba makes tiny, precise incisions that will be less than ¼ of an inch and hidden. Small, delicate tubes called cannulas are inserted, and the fat is removed. Dr. Joseph N. Togba carefully targets the areas of fat removed to accurately sculpt the body.

Other aesthetic body contouring procedures
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive way to remove up to 25% of unwanted localized fat deposits. With this procedure, there are no sutures, no surgery, and no downtime. You can return to work the same day of your treatment.
What is the recovery period after liposuction?
Recovery time after liposuction is very short. Most patients return to work in a week. As liposuction is permanent, the fat will not grow back; however, weight gain will cause fat to be deposited in different areas. Maintaining a stable body weight with a healthy lifestyle is a very important way to keep your body looking trim. To ensure a speedy recovery, Dr. Joseph N. Togba encourages all of his patients to engage in walking after surgery.
