Tired of Stubborn Fat?

Posted June 08, 2018 in Liposuction, SculpSure™

For most people, the answer to the question above is a resounding YES! Pockets of stubborn fat plague just about everyone, and, sometimes, even the healthiest diet and strictest exercise regimens are not enough to combat the deviousness of the unwanted fat.

Fortunately, there are several cosmetic options available to finally get the upper hand when it comes to fighting and saying goodbye to fat. Whether you are interested in a surgical or non-surgical fix, Dr. Careaga can help you achieve your ideal body shape.


Liposuction is now, and will likely continue to be, the gold standard when it comes to cosmetic fat removal. Time-tested and true, liposuction removes even the most stubborn fat in the abdomen, hips, waist, back, knees, buttocks, thighs, jowls, and neck. Whether you have just experienced childbirth or pregnancy, have remaining pockets of fat after significant weight loss, or want to feel better in your favorite pair of jeans, liposuction is a viable and effective option that will leave you feeling more confident than you have in years.

Dr. Careaga offers several different forms and levels of liposuction to meet your goals and desires. From the quicker recoveries of Vaser LipoSelection® and SmartLipo™ to the proven results of traditional liposuction, you can rest assured you will achieve the results you are hoping for.


SculpSure™ is a revolutionary light-based body contouring system that permanently destroys fat cells in problematic areas like the abdomen and flanks. The procedure is usually only 25 minutes, non-invasive, comfortable, and requires no anesthesia or recovery period. Although results are noticeable after one treatment, many patients find additional benefits in a series of treatment and noticeable fat loss is typically apparent at six weeks. With SculpSure™, you can finally bid farewell to the love handles and the stomach pooch to welcome a smoother, firmer, and trimmer you.

Stubborn fat isn’t something you need to accept. While healthy adults are candidates for both liposuction and SculpSure™, it is recommended that you are near to your ideal weight and do not smoke. Cosmetic fat reduction is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, but it is a welcome addition. If you are interested in learning more about these procedures, contact Dr. Careaga at Careaga Plastic Surgery today by calling (305) 960-7511.
