Liposuction is a minimally invasive way of removing  fat from problem areas, reshaping the areas and making them look better.  Typically it is performed with anesthesia at a surgery center or a hospital.  However, liposuction can also be performed under local anesthetic, so it can be performed in the office.  Dr. Bastidas is an expert in both methods and he can help you decide which would best for you.

Liposuction can also be combined with other technologies such as laser, ultra-sound, and/or radiofrequency.  For example, SmartLipo is laser assisted liposuction under local anesthetic.  It is important to understand that is the provider of these services that is most important, not the technology!
