Liposuction, also called lipo-sculpturing, is the most common cosmetic surgery procedure performed in the United States. Unwanted fat is removed through very small and inconspicuous incisions. Our surgeons perform this minimally invasive body contouring using advanced lipo-sculpture techniques, including power assisted cannulas and ultrasonic liposuction to allow for greater finesse in the results. This is not a weight loss procedure, but rather a procedure to improve body contour. These surgeries are performed under local anesthesia with light sedation. Larger cases require general anesthesia. The “superwet” technique is used to eliminate blood loss and facilitate fat removal. This is a very safe operation with a fairly rapid and comfortable recovery. We can also take the fat harvested from liposuction and place it in another location in the body. Talk with you doctor about options.
