San Diego Plastic Surgeon Discusses Body Contouring

SAN DIEGO CA--(Marketwired - Jun 28, 2016) - Dr. Antoine Hallak a San Diego Plastic Surgeon says that liposuction is on the rise for healthy fit people. For many people it doesn't matter how much they work out and diet, they simply can't achieve the results they want with diet and exercise. Fatty tissue can build up in certain areas of the body and simply can't be dieted or worked off. These areas tend to be the belly area or muffin top, buttocks and thighs. And for some the fatty build up can be proportioned in a way that is very frustrating; some women may have very low fat levels in their upper body but their lower body is where fat is deposited. 

Dr. Antoine Hallak specializes in body contouring and liposuction treatments in San Diego. Dr. Hallak says, "Liposuction works best when the individual is in good healthy shape and would like to use liposuction on the troubled spots like the flanks, abdomen, buttocks and thighs." For many liposuction is the answer to these troubled spots, and with today's laser liposuction you can really define a patient's body. He goes on to say, "I have had patients spend years trying to develop a six pack and with one visit we can remove the fat in the torso area and sculpt the six pack they have dreamed of for years."

Dr. Hallak reports that this time of the year is when he sees a jump in liposuction treatments. He says, "Many people have summer vacations planned or they are simply at the beach a lot and want to look great in their bathing suits."

Liposuction recovery is rather quick also, usually within a week you are back to your normal routine. Although after the first week it is recommended that you still take it easy no heavy lifting or heavy workouts.

Dr. Hallak wants to emphasize that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and recommends it to people that are near their desired weight and BMI but just need help with those trouble spots. He also advises that after the procedure that a good diet and regular exercise be continued. 

Dr. Hallak is Board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He has completed a full training in General Surgery in New York City prior to specialization in Plastic Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery at the world renowned McGill University in Montreal Canada.

Dr. Hallak is an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the San Diego County Medical Society and The San Diego Plastic Surgery Society. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (ACS).
