Female abdomen with orange underwearContrary to popular belief, liposuction is not a quick and easy way for San Fernando Valley patients trying to lose weight. Rather, it’s a procedure that’s intended to benefit those who are unable to eliminate stubborn pockets of fats. It’s a great shaping procedure, not a weight loss technique. In fact, if a patient is too overweight, Dr. Sanders may even recommend against liposuction because it may not provide the desired benefit for the patient. The ideal candidate is someone who has already lost the majority of their weight but needs help with shaping the body.

Technically, San Fernando Valley patients may drop up to ten pounds after the surgery, but if seeing numbers go down on the scale is the primary goal, Dr. Sanders will also recommend that healthy lifestyle habits like diet and exercise be included in the treatment plan.
