Liposuction

Liposuction, also referred to as “lipo”, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that sculpts your body by removing fat from it. Our surgeons perform this procedure by making a small puncture in the skin. A tool called a “cannula” used to loosen fat cells and suction them out.

However, the common areas for fat removal include the stomach, flanks, lower back, thighs, and arms. Furthermore, liposuction often combined with other procedures. Such as tummy tucks and thigh lifts.

Liposuction Procedure Overview

Indeed, liposuction performed as an outpatient procedure. It means you can return home the same day of the surgery. Although, you may need to arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure since you will tired.

Before the liposuction procedure begins. First, your surgeon will mark the body parts that require treatment. Next, anesthesia will administered to help keep you comfortable during the liposuction process. Then, our surgeons will then make the necessary incisions. Utilizing the chosen liposuction technique to remove fat from the treatment area. After the corrections made, the small incision will closed.

What are the Types of Liposuction Procedure?

Even though there are different types of liposuction techniques. However, the one thing that they have in common is that they involve using a cannula. A thin tube connected to a vacuum for sucking the fat out of the body.

Tumescent Liposuction

One of the most common techniques used for liposuction. Moreoever, using this method, our surgeons will insert a sterile solution into the targeted area. Subsequently, from where the fat must removed. The sterile solution consists of saline (salt water) along with epinephrine and lidocaine. Because of this solution, the suction process carried out with less pain and blood loss.

Laser-Assisted Liposuction (SmartLipo)

The procedure makes use of an advanced and highly precise laser. Eventually, that can target and liquefy the fat in the treatment area.

Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL)

It involves using sound wave energy applied right under the skin to rupture the fat cell walls. It liquefies the fat making it ready to sucked out.

When to Consider the Procedure?

  • If your skin elasticity is good. Liposuction removes fat but does not tighten skin.

  • If you would like more definition in certain areas of your body. Liposuction enhances sleeker contour.

  • If you have areas of fat deposits that are disproportionate to the rest of your body. Liposuction reduces localized fat deposits.

Procedure Testimonial

I had an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with liposuction. Dr. E and his staff are courteous and professional. All guidelines and timelines were honest. For example, I was told I could return to work at the 7-10 day mark – sooner if I had a sitting job, later if I had a standing job. I returned to work on day 8 (I stand all day at work), and day 10 would have been perfect. Day 8 was probably a wee bit early. They were right on the mark, so listen closely to recommendations and guidelines.

I am thrilled with the excellent results of my tummy tuck. No longer wear Spanx and bought a two-piece bathing suit for the first time in twenty years. I am in my early 50s and have the belly button of a twenty-five-year-old! If you are going to lose weight, do it first.  I had my consult with Dr. E (who answered every question I had and was extremely patient) and lost 32 pounds in the year before surgery. I’m so glad I did.

I have never felt better about my body. Had a tummy flap that would not go away, even with diet and exercise.  I would recommend Dr. E without hesitation and would use him again if the need arose.
