Before and After Photos

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Chaffoo helps determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction at a private consultation by listening to your cosmetic goals and completing a thorough physical examination. If Dr. Chaffoo determines liposuction is the best option for you, he will then decide which technique will best suit your needs. The most common method he uses for San Diego-area patients is called tumescent liposuction, which Dr. Chaffoo performs using general anesthesia.

Breast Lift

If you’re considering a body contouring procedure such as liposuction, Dr. Chaffoo can help. He has an office conveniently located on Genesee Avenue in La Jolla on the Scripps Memorial Hospital Campus at the Ximed Medical Center.

Breast Implant Options

This technique involves the injection of a saline solution that includes an anesthetic to numb the area being treated, limit bleeding, and saturate the fatty tissue. Tumescent means swollen and firm, and the swollen fatty tissue is easier to break up and suction from the body. A thin, hollow tube called a cannula, inserted through a tiny incision, is used to remove the fat.
