Denver Liposuction

Liposuction surgery can be used to remove stubborn fat deposits from any locations in body that are not responding to exercise and/or diet. In cosmetic medicine the liposuction procedure is considered to be the best solution for eliminating troublesome lumps and bumps from the arms, back stomach and thigh areas. When your resolve is to commitment to a lifestyle of safe diet and exercise, liposuction can help you shape a better body overall.

The procedure itself is designed to slim and reshape areas of your body. It helps make the contours of your body smoother and firmer promoting a better-proportioned body. If you've reached the point where diet and exercise seem like an unrealistic method getting rid of unwanted weight, liposuction may be the next step solution. The best liposuction candidates are those that are at or near their goal weight but still experience difficulty certain areas of the body. Liposuction can be performed alone or in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures such as a tummy tuck or arm tuck.

How is the liposuction procedure performed?

Each Liposuction procedure, like most cosmetic surgery procedures, are customized to each patients' needs. During the procedure small incisions are made in or near the precise areas that are to be suctioned, then a surgical tool known as a cannula is inserted to vacuum out the fat beneath the skin. Sometimes, the incisions can be small enough that stitches are not required. The time of the surgery ranges from 1 to 3 hours, depending on the number of areas treated, the technique used by the physician, the amount of fat removed and the type of anesthesia used during the procedure. Modern cosmetic surgeons use 4 liposuction techniques:
Traditional Liposuction - this involves the surgical suctioning of excess fat deposits
Tumescent or Super Wet Liposuction - this procedure uses the infusion of a saline solution with added adrenaline and possibly an anesthetic, which work together to remove excess fat
Ultrasound-Assisted (UAL) Liposuction - this procedure uses ultrasonic energy to liquify excess fat
Laser-Assisted Liposuction - during this procedure laser energy is used to liquify excess fat for removal

How does liposuction affect skin tone?

It is a fact that the quality of your skin tone can have an affect on the results of your liposuction procedure. The areas of your body that have good skin tone will offer more attractive results after a liposuction procedure. Many areas of the body have two layers of fat: a thin superficial layer and a thicker deep layer. Liposuction works best when removing the deep fat. When liposuction is done on the superficial fat it can lead to the dimpling of the skin and irregularities. Under circumstanced where your concerns are superficial fat, then "liposuction lite" may be a preferable treatment. Our office can perform "liposuction lite" with minimal recovery downtime and a quick recovery.

What can Liposuction do for my cellulite?

Let's face it, cellulite is common, many women have it, and we all wish it could just go away. The unattractive dimpling and puckering of the skin known as cellulite is caused by a combination of fibrous bands and superficial fat. Superficial fat compartments become distended with fat, and this is when dimpling occurs. Unfortunately Liposuction generally will not improve cellulite. Patients who are interested in treating cellulite should look into options such as Velashape, which is FDA approved to treat cellulite and firm problem areas.

What should patients expect from liposuction?

Following their liposuction procedure, patients should notice a slimmer and firmer body with smoother contours that can be maintained with weight control and general fitness.

Are there any side effects and risks from liposuction?

As is the case with any surgical procedure, there are risks and side effects that every patient should consider carefully. Some of the common side effects of liposuction include swelling, numbness, soreness, bruising and discomfort, all of which can be managed with pain medication. Some of the risks associated with this surgery include uneven contours, rippling or loose skin, skin or nerve damage, irregular pigmentation, infection at the incision site, fat clots, blood clots, excessive fluid loss or fluid accumulation. Patients considering liposuction should also be aware there is also a risk of thermal burn or heat injury from the ultrasound-assisted or laser assisted liposuction. As is the case with any surgery, the use of an anesthesia carries risks.

What does the healing process from liposuction involve?

Your physician will give you instructions on the best methods for post-operative care for the incisions. When encourage patients to resume light to normal activity when they feel ready. The initial post-operative healing can last between 5 to 10 days. During this time any sutures are removed. Through the next several weeks healing will continue, swelling will decrease and incision lines will refine. The final results can take 3-6 months to develop.
