Liposuction is a popular treatment chosen to remove stubborn fat deposits on the abdominal wall, hips, and thighs when the area does not respond to a healthy diet or exercise regime. However, it is not used as a method of weight loss. Results may also vary from person to person. Lipoplasty can also be used on the upper arms, face, knees, calves, and ankles. Liposuction can be combined with other surgical procedures and/or can be used to treat multiple areas of the body at a time. If you would like to learn more, please call and schedule a consultation today, and let us help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
A large amount of an anesthetic solution is injected into the fatty tissue. The fluid consists of local anesthetic lidocaine, a drug that contracts the blood vessels (epinephrine), and an intravenous (IV) salt solution. The lidocaine helps to numb the area during and after surgery, epinephrine minimizes the blood loss, and the IV solution eliminates the fat more easily.
Being a short process, it is quite similar to tumescent liposuction with the only difference that less amount of fluid is required during the surgery. In other words, the amount of fluid injected is equal to the amount of fat to be removed.
This technique makes use of ultrasonic vibrations to liquefy the fat thereby making it easier to remove. This technique can be applied in upper abdomen, sides, and back. After liquefying the cells, they are vacuumed out. Being a longer process, UAL can be done externally above the surface of the skin with a special emitter or internally below the surface of the skin with a small, heated cannula.
Laser energy is used to liquefy fat cells. After liquefying the cells, they are vacuumed out. As the cannula used during LAL is small, surgeons prefer applying it in areas such as jowls, chin and face, and the energy from the laser stimulates collagen production.
4D Liposuction performed via VASERLipo. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. This technology helps reduce pain and downtime by melting fat away and even transferring the fat to other parts for the body for Brazilian butt lift. High Definition VASER Lipo can even help sculpt the abdomen to help define “6- pack abs”.
A common problematic area, the thighs tend to store fat and cellulite. This procedure is often performed in tandem with a thigh lift, depending on the patient. At Elite Plastic Surgery, we offer lipo of the thighs and also Cellfina to help reduce cellulite. Cellfina is leading the way with cellulite treatment and is available at Elite Plastic Surgery.
BRA STRAP FAT(UPPER BACK AND CHEST)
The mons pubis is the pubic area above the genital area that stores fat and may sometimes become more pronounced after a tummy tuck or liposuction of the stomach. It is usually genetic and may be pronounced even when one has not undergone a tummy tuck or stomach lipo. Mons pubis reduction is also referred to as mons pubis liposuction.
DO I QUALIFY FOR BREAST AUGMENTATION IN PHOENIX?
Liposuction is most commonly performed on the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, the neck, and even on the knees. To be a good candidate, patients should be in good health and have:
Liposuction is usually performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under local or general anesthesia. During the procedure, one or more small incisions will be made near the treatment site. A thin tube (cannula) is then inserted through the incision to loosen the excess fat, which is then suctioned out. The length of this procedure varies among patients, but it typically takes between 1– 3 hours to complete. Following the procedure, you should wear a compression garment for the first few weeks to reduce swelling and ensure optimal healing. You can expect minimal scarring at the incision site, but with proper scar management, it will be difficult to notice. For the results of liposuction to last, the patient should maintain a stable weight through healthy diet and exercise.
RECOVERY TIME AND HEALING
Complete recovery from liposuction takes 1 – 3 weeks depending on the extent of the procedure. Using a pressure garment for at least 3 weeks encourages healing without sagging. Swelling and bruising begin to disappear after 1 – 2 weeks. Sutures are removed in 7 – 10 days. However, allowing the body enough time to heal is essential to having the best result from liposuction.
Start walking on the day after your surgery. Our patients require optimum rest during the first 2 weeks, though they can continue with normal functions (you may return to work within 2 – 3 days unless there are complications). Avoid strenuous exercise and exposure to sun and heat for 6 weeks. You may see changes after 6 weeks, but it takes 6 – 10 months before the final and best result of liposuction (body shape and contour) is discernible. The results of liposuction may last for years, and its outcome can be made long-term with stable weight and healthy habits. Changes in lifestyle, weight gain, pregnancy, and aging may influence body contours.
