Many prospective liposuction patients want to know the ins and outs of the procedure. You know it is popular, but is there really such thing as a safe liposuction technique? And despite its growing demands, is it really as effective as advertised?
Lets explore some of the most common questions:
There have been numerous studies conducted to review whether the tumescent procedure should be considering a safe liposuction technique, and the results are echoed through several credible sources, including the FDA, that it is indeed very safe when performed by an experienced surgeon. It is important to select an experienced surgeon that is familiar with the technique and follows all suggested protocols.
Tumescent Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure using only a local anaesthetic to permanently remove fat through "suctioning".
Small micro cannulas are inserted (measuring roughly the size of a ballpoint pen tip.) into the skin through very small incisions. A local anaesthetic called "tumescent" is infused into the procedure area to eliminate any discomfort. Next, the fat is suctioned through the micro cannula to permanently remove fat from the targeted body area.
Liposuction is considered to be extremely effective for removing fat from areas of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise. This is one of the most common reasons the demand for this procedure is constantly growing.
The recovery for liposuction is actually impressively quick. Many patients resume their daily routine within 24 - 48 hours.
Absolutely. Once the fat cells are removed, they cannot regrow. However, patients are responsible for maintaining these results through a healthy diet and regular exercise.
In most cases, yes. A surgeon will perform a detailed evaluation to determine if your goals can be met for the area you are considering to have treated.
The fat removal surgery cost & specific financing options available will depend on the surgeon or center you choose for the procedure. At the Laser Lipo and Vein Center, patients get easy access to financing through CareCredit or United Medical Credit.
According to national estimates by PlasticSurgery.org, the average fat removal surgery cost is around $2971 per targeted region.
This basically introduces the use of laser technology to melt fat faster and expedite the treatment time. Secondary benefits include less damage to surrounding tissues, skin tightening to the area being treated, faster recovery time, and more fat volume removed.
It is recommended that patients work with an experienced surgeon who is knowledgeable and has been performing the procedure for some time with a proven track record of success.
