There’s a good reason so many women and men considering liposuction in Palo Alto, San Jose, Campbell, and around the Bay Area choose Stanford-trained, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daryl Hoffman to perform their procedures. He’s established a track record of producing excellent results that achieve the goals his patients describe during their consultations.

Liposuction for Abdomen and Hips

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for men. Like many of the men Dr. Hoffman treats, this patient wanted a flatter abdomen to boost his confidence when he wasn’t wearing a shirt.

A protruding belly is a common aesthetic concern. Dr. Hoffman used Smartlipo to contour this young woman’s upper and lower abdomen and hips.

These photos demonstrate how Smartlipo reduces fat on the hips while maintaining a feminine, hourglass figure.

Liposuction for Thighs

This patient wanted to reduce fat in her upper thighs and create what is often called a “thigh gap.”

In this case, the patient was concerned about stubborn fat on both the inside and outside of her thighs. The results are natural-looking but noticeable.

Liposuction for Neck

This patient wanted a better-defined jawline and more prominent chin. Smartlipo on the neck and jowls produced beautiful results.

Your Liposuction Options

Dr. Hoffman specializes in body contouring treatments such as liposuction and never takes a one-size-fits-all approach to the procedure. That’s why he offers multiple types of liposuction that include different technologies. The techniques offered at our practice include:

Traditional manual liposuction: Also called tumescent liposuction, this procedure involves saturating the treatment area with a solution that includes a local anesthetic and epinephrine (adrenalin), which causes the fat to swell (become tumescent) and minimizes bleeding. Dr. Hoffman then inserts thin tubes called cannulas through small incisions and breaks up the fatty tissue before suctioning it from the body.

Smartlipo®: This laser-assisted liposuction technique also involves preparing the treatment area with tumescent fluid. The small tube inserted by Dr. Hoffman delivers laser energy, rupturing the fat cells for easier removal. Smartlipo minimizes swelling and bleeding because it’s a gentler type of liposuction.

VASER® Ultrasonic Liposuction: As with the other techniques, Dr. Hoffman uses tumescent fluid as part of VASER lipo. The cannula emits high-frequency vibrations (ultrasonic waves) that break up the fat. Like Smartlipo, the VASER technique is gentler than manual liposuction and causes less trauma to surrounding tissue.

Each technique offers unique advantages, depending on the treatment area and your goals. Dr. Hoffman explains the approach he plans to use and why he considers it the best treatment for your specific concerns. Whether you want to reduce belly fat, get a shapelier butt, minimize a double chin, or tone your thighs, liposuction can help.
