Liposuction

Liposuction

Improves facial and body contours by removing unwanted fat deposits.

Procedure

Liposuction surgery removes areas of unwanted fat with a tube and a vacuum device. Liposuction techniques, including tumescent or super-wet, typically are performed after targeted fat cells are infused with a saline solution containing a local anesthetic and adrenalin to decrease blood loss. Benefits of this liposuction technique include increased safety, easier fat removal, as well
as diminished postoperative discomfort. This also reduces post-operative bruising and swelling.
The most common locations for liposuction are the chin, cheeks, neck, and upper arms, the area above the breasts, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves, and ankles.
There are several techniques commonly used including the “Traditional Technique”, “Laser Technique,” and the “Ultrasonic Technique (UA).” The Traditional Technique utilizes a hollow tube
to remove the fat and the Laser and Ultrasonic Technique utilizes laser or ultrasonic energy to dissolve that fat before it is removed. See your physician regarding which technique would be
best for you.
