Liposuction is designed to remove excess fat. It can help you achieve your cosmetic goals, whether you want a slimmer waist, thinner thighs, contoured neck and chin, or a flatter tummy. Liposuction works best for patients with good skin tone, stable weight and stubborn pockets of fat. If the skin is too loose or sagging, a tummy tuck or lift may provide better results. The best way to determine if liposuction is right for you is to consult with Dr. Steinwald, Dr. Vath, or Dr. Wolfe, both board certified plastic surgeons with years of experience in a broad range of cosmetic surgery procedures.
The tumescent technique involves pretreating the fatty tissues with large volumes of saline, local anesthesia, and adrenaline to maximize fat removal while maintaining patient comfort and safety.
Power-assisted liposuction, performed along with the tumescent technique, uses a suction tip vibrating at a rapid speed. This causes the fat to separate from surrounding tissues so that it may be suctioned away gently and quickly. Surgical time is decreased which means less cost and increased safety due to a shorter duration of anesthesia.
