Liposuction can be performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as a breast reduction or Brazilian Butt Lift. In many cases, Liposuction is performed under local anesthesia.
The liposuction procedure is different for men and women due to the composition of fatty adipose tissue.
Adipose in women is often softer and less fibrous. In men, the fatty adipose tissue is more dense and fibrous, so it tends to stick more closely to the layer over the muscle, making separation and removal more challenging. Our doctors specialize in liposuction for both men and women.
• The Procedure
Liposuction utilizes a hollow, stainless steel tube and vacuum to remove localized fat deposits from beneath the skin, through small incisions.
Our preferred approaches to this procedure are:
Standard: This procedure utilizes various hollow, stainless-steel tubes called cannulas
Power-Assisted: This procedure utilizes oscillating cannulas, which help break up fatty tissue deposit in difficult areas. This allows surgeons to effectively perform higher volumes of liposuction in a shorter time frame, without burn risks or trauma to fibrous tissues.* NEED INFORMATION * See if you can find anything on the internet from the manufacturer websites for laser assisted lipo equipment
