Ultrasonic liposuction & laser lipolysis for high definition liposculpture
Liposculpture or Liposuction is the surgical removal of fatty tissue from specific areas of the body by inserting a metal cannula (hollow metal tube) under the skin.
What is the Tumescent technique?
With the tumescent technique, large volumes of saline solutions, local anesthesia, and adrenaline are infused into the fatty area being treated to cause swelling. This enables your surgeon to maneuver a small instrument called a cannula, connected to a vacuum machine, superficially under the skin.
The cannula is inserted into the fatty tissue through tiny incisions. Your surgeon gently moves it around under your skin and suctions away the unwanted fatty deposits to reveal more attractive contours.
What areas can be treated by Liposuction?
The most frequent areas treated by liposuction in men are the “love handles” breasts, abdomen and neckline. In women they include: thighs, hips, buttocks, stomach, knees, lower leg, cheeks, and double chins. Some women elect to have their fat recycled through lipo-augmentation.
Will I need a second procedure?
Most likely one procedure will be sufficient. However, Some patients require a fine tuning procedure at a future date.
Will Liposuction get rid of cellulite?
Liposuction is not a treatment for cellulite, although many patients do notice an improvement in the appearance of cellulite after the fat cells are removed.
How will my skin look after surgery?
Dimples, ripples and stretch marks remain unchanged following liposuction. Your new figure will be similar to what you would expect if you could lose an equal amount of localized fat through diet and exercise alone. The use of smaller cannulas allows the fibrous connections between your skin and body remain. These connections will contract over time.
As a result, excessive skin folds are so rare that many patients avoid the necessity for surgical skin excision by having excellent results with liposuction alone
