Weekend Recovery Liposculpture / Liposuction
Liposculpture or liposuction allows the surgeon to remove excess fatty deposits from specific areas of the body. For example, it can slim your hips and thighs, flatten your abdomen, reshape your waist, or eliminate a double chin. Liposuction is suitable for men and women who have isolated areas of fat that causes their body to appear disproportionate. These areas typically do not respond to diet and exercise and can be frustrating for those who tried. Liposuction can also be suitable for those men and women who are ready to change their lifestyle with healthy living but need a jump start with improvement of their general appearance. The change will bring encouragement and allow increase level of activities to facilitate the weight loss.
Tumescent liposuction is now widely performed in the office. After the skin is numbed, a large volume of diluted anesthetic fluid is delivered into the subcutaneous fat. The diluted fluid has anesthetics and constricts capillaries to minimize bleeding during surgery. It also provides fluid to the body so that IV fluid is not needed. This method allows liposuction totally by local anesthesia and eliminates the risks of general anesthesia because tumescent local anesthesia lasts so long. Tumescent liposuction is a lot less painful and more pleasant than the old liposuction technique. Smoother liposuction can be now achieved with microcannulas which allow a gradual and more controlled removal of fat. This allows the surgeon to provide smoother and more satisfying results.
Since tumescent liposuction is minimally invasive, patients can expect a faster recovery than traditional liposuction. They are encouraged and expected to walk a mile the day after the surgery and can usually return back to work in three to five days. This procedure is often performed at the end of the week for a weekend recovery. It also allows people of all age groups to become candidates for a chance to correct their imperfections.
Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty
For our clients who have extra skin from weight loss or after children, a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty may be the procedure of choice. The Classic Abdominoplasty is used surgically remove the extra skin, and, If needed, the underlying muscle separation can be repaired. If the client has significant residual fatty tissue in the abdominal areas as well, she may can benefit from the advanced lipoabdominoplasty. Lipoabdominoplasty or Lipo-tummy tuck allows for liposuction for shape enhancement and removal excess skin, as well as a quicker recovery than traditional abdominoplasy. For patients who have a lot of extra skin, a extended abdominoplasty may be required. This technique has advantage of quicker recovery. Most of our clients are off of work for about 7 days.
