August Procedure of the Month: Liposuction
Are you carrying around stubborn fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of? Do you exercise regularly and have a relatively healthy diet, but you still can’t seem to shed the excess fat?
Dr. Myla of Preserve your Pretty Skin and Body is here to help with one of the most effective solutions for a more sculpted physique – liposuction. Patients can create the sleek and slim contours they’ve been working for in those problem areas with help from liposuction.
The Perfect Candidates for Liposuction
Liposuction is best suited for eliminating small, stubborn areas of fat, so the procedure is typically recommended for people who are in relatively good shape and just need a little extra help. What liposuction does is contour the body by removing fat from problem areas such as thighs, hips and buttocks, abdomen, love handles, chin, neck, upper arms, and more!
Rather than a technique for losing weight, liposuction is used to contour and sculpt the body in specific, targeted areas. No matter how much you work out or how healthy your diet is, your genetics could be making it extremely difficult for you to lose fat in certain areas. The best candidates should be in good health, at a stable and healthy weight, and have isolated areas of unwanted fat that have not responded to lifestyle changes.
How Liposuction Works
The two most common types of liposuction are tumescent and ultrasound-assisted. At Preserve your Pretty Skin and Body, we use the traditional, tumescent technique. With tumescent liposuction, there is less bruising than with other forms because it reduces blood loss during the procedure.
Tumescent liposuction – Treatment areas are injected with a large amount of anesthetic liquid that usually contains a local anesthetic and a drug called epinephrine to shrink capillaries and minimize blood loss during the procedure. The injected liquid causes the compartments of fat to become swollen and firm. The expanded fat compartments make it easier for the small liposuction cannula to travel smoothly beneath the skin and “vacuum” out the fat.
