Liposuction

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is the manual extraction of fatty tissue from specific areas of the body. Tumescent liposuction refers to the technique of anesthetizing the treatment area prior to suctioning. This technique benefits patients in several ways. First, there is less bruising, swelling and bleeding than in non-tumescent liposuction. Second, the tumescent technique allows for local, rather than general anesthesia. Surgeries, employing local anesthesia demonstrate significantly lower risks and complications than surgeries employing general anesthesia. Finally, because patients are not “put under,” there is no need for expensive surgical suites and anesthesiologist fees.

Patients receive mild sedation and a prophylactic dose of antibiotics before the procedure. This helps to relax them while still allowing for safe conscious sedation.

What are the benefits of liposuction?

Liposuction reduces the volume of fat in the area treated. Traditional areas that can be treated include the abdomen, outer and inner thighs, neck, upper arms, back, flanks and abdominal obliques. Patients can expect about a 50% reduction in the amount of fat in the treated area. Patients often note a decrease in their pants, top or dress size. Weight loss can be noted as well, especially in those patients who are inspired to exercise regularly and eat healthier after their procedure.
