Liposuction, is an advanced body contouring procedure that selectively removes unwanted body fat. Unlike the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, we use state-of-the-art ultrasound technology designed to gently reshape your body. What distinguishes this procedure is its ability to differentiate targeted fat from other important tissues — such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. Innovative technology breaks up fat while preserving these other important tissues to promote smooth results and rapid healing.
The area to be reshaped is filled with a special saline solution that helps numb the site and shrink the blood vessels (to minimize blood loss and reduce bruising). This solution wets and fills the area to be treated, making it easier to break up fatty tissue with the ultrasound energy. Then a small probe transmits sound energy (similar to that used for cataract removal from the eye) to break up fatty tissue on contact while preserving other important tissues. Finally, the liquefied fat is removed through a gentle suction process designed to minimize damage to surrounding tissues.
Post-operative care can very. After surgery, we will discuss post-operative care that may include wearing a compression garment as well as what activities you may want to refrain from while your body heals. Recovery time varies with the extensiveness of the procedure – the amount of fat removed, the number of sites treated, and so on. Many patients report that they see results immediately after the procedure with the final result at around 3 to 6 months.
If you are frustrated by the resistance of certain body areas to diet and exercise, Liposuction can provide a solution. If you are healthy and seeking a fast, low-pain solution to losing stubborn fat deposits, Liposuction could be your answer. Although there are limits to the amount of fat that can be removed, we can assist you with your decision about potential areas for sculpting, anticipated results, and the recovery process.
