First, you should know that this is a cosmetic procedure that delivers precise body contouring, yet it is done under local anesthesia, so you don’t risk complications associated with general sedation. Localized deposits of fat are removed to re-contour one or more areas of the body.
Through a very small incision, a narrow tube called a cannula is inserted and used to vacuum the fat layer that lies deep beneath the skin. The cannula is pushed then pulled through the fat layer, breaking up the fat cells and suctioning them out. The suction action is provided by a vacuum pump or a large syringe.
Our Liposuction is an office-based procedure that uses Fluid Injection also known as Tumescent liposuction, a technique in which a medicated solution is injected into fatty areas before the fat is removed. Our Lipo techniques are less painful and has a quicker recovery time than traditional liposuction. It is performed as an outpatient procedure and is safer because it is done under local targeted anesthesia and does not require riskier general anesthesia.
Tumescent liposuction can safely remove fat from almost all parts of the body, including the breasts, stomach, hips, flanks, bra-line, back, inner and outer thighs, buttocks, knees, calves and ankles. The tumescent technique is one of the best options because it is one of the most effective and less risky types of liposuction available. It is a very precise and gentle technique with minimal downtime.
Tumescent liposuction is the “golden standard” of liposuction options available. Other benefits are… One Time Procedure: Walk in and a few hours later walk out looking great! Minimal Downtime: Most Clients will feel no pain and are back to normal within 3 to 5 days.
Many clients have the procedure on Friday and go back to work on Monday! Feel Better: Because local anesthesia is used, patients can avoid the side effects of being knocked out by general anesthesia, such as vomiting and nausea. Better Results: With cannulas of only 3mm in diameter, the doctor is able to target the fat tissue that needs to be removed with greater precision.
Many of our clients come back and do other areas because of their great results. Less Scarring: No sutures or stitches are required – which leads to less scarring – due to the finer incisions than with traditional liposuction. Much Safer: Since general anesthesia is not involved, the potential complications are greatly reduced.
