How is the liposuction procedure performed?

Every Liposuction procedure is specific to the needs of each patient. Generally during the procedure small incisions are made in or near the specific areas that are to be suctioned. Then a surgical tool known as a cannula vacuums out fat beneath the skin. In some instances, the incisions can be small enough that stitches are not required. The duration of the surgery usually ranges from 1 to 3 hours, depending on the number of areas being addressed, technique used by the physician, amount of fat to be suctioned and type of anesthesia used during the procedure. There are basically 4 liposuction techniques modern cosmetic surgeons use:
Traditional Liposuction – a process involving the surgical suctioning of excess fat deposits
Tumescent or Super Wet Liposuction - this process 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 process uses ultrasonic energy to liquify excess fat
Laser-Assisted Liposuction – this process uses a laser energy to liquify excess fat for removal

How does liposuction affect skin tone?

The quality of your skin tone can have an affect on the results you can achieve through liposuction. Simply stated, 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 is better at the removal of deep fat, if liposuction is used on superficial fat it can lead to the dimpling of the skin and irregularities. If your cosmetic concerns involve 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 about 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 a liposuction procedure, patients should notice a slimmer and firmer body and smoother contours. The permanence of the results depend on one's willingness, desire and ability to maintained their weight and fitness.

Are there any side effects and risks from liposuction?

All surgical procedures have side effects and risks, we advise our prospective patients to take the time and consider them all. Some of the common side effects of liposuction include: swelling, numbness, soreness, bruising and discomfort. Fortunately these side effects can be managed with pain medication. 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. If patients are undergoing the ultrasound-assisted or laser assisted liposuction they should be aware there is also a risk of thermal burn or heat injury. As is the case with any surgery, the use of an anesthesia carries risks.

What does the healing process from liposuction involve?

All our patients are instructed on the best methods for post-operative care for the incisions. Usually light to normal activity can be resumed when the patient feels ready. The initial post-operative wound healing will last between 5 to 10 days. During this time any sutures are removed. During the next several weeks the swelling will subside and the incision lines will refine. The final results can take 3-6 months.
