The procedure works well on stubborn fat deposits that won’t disappear, even if you are following a strict diet and physical exercise. Dr. Sofonio delivers custom liposuction at his state-of-the-art, private clinic, in Rancho Mirage, California.

Reshape Your Figure

With a Custom Liposuction Treatment.

If you are tired of looking in the mirror and seeing unsightly bulges or feeling that your body looks unbalanced due to larger thighs or buttocks, you may be an ideal candidate for lipo in Palm Springs.

This procedure can remove fairly large quantities of excess fat located on various body areas, including:

  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Love handles
  • Abdomen
  • Bra fat
  • Upper arm fat
  • Back fat
  • Double chin fat

Liposuction is most effective for people who have reasonably supple, resilient skin. If your skin is exceptionally lax, you may require another approach to body sculpting. Once the fat is removed, your skin needs to have the ability to shrink back to your altered body contour. If you have very lax skin, we offer a range of other procedures to help you.

What is Liposuction Like to Experience?

In your private consultation, Dr. Sofonio will discuss your treatment option, evaluate your skin quality, and answer your questions or concerns. Every liposuction procedure is 100 percent customized, and Dr. Sofonio is known for his artistic approach, precision, and for achieving exceptional results with liposuction. The procedure is performed with a small, thin suction tube called a cannula, which is inserted through tiny incisions in the skin.

The suction device is shifted within the treatment area to access fat in the treatment area, and the fat deposits are removed with a syringe or a suction pump. Liposuction requires local anesthesia or IV sedation and is performed on an outpatient basis. For patients who need a larger quantity of fat removed, liposuction may be performed with general anesthesia and could require an overnight stay at an extended care center.

Recovery Time After Custom Liposuction

After your liposuction in Palm Desert, your skin may look swollen, but it will tighten within about six months.

Pain, swelling, bruising, and numbness can last for several weeks. To limit the pain and bruising, a wrap or compression garment is worn for several weeks. You can return to your normal activities in a few weeks, but you must avoid strenuous activities until you are recovered.

Your New Figure, Revealed.

An improvement in the shape of the treated body parts is readily visible after liposuction, but the results become more noticeable in a few months after the swelling has disappeared. The procedure permanently removes fat cells but does not prevent weight gain, so diet and exercise are recommended to maintain the patient’s new look.
