Liposuction (Tumescent Liposuction)
Service Type: In Office
Liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat that has not responded to diet and exercise from the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks, and neck. Liposuction not only offers the opportunity to slim and contour chubby areas of the body — by removing the fat cells, it also ensures that these areas will not accumulate fatty deposits in the future.
Tumescent liposuction can be performed without general anesthesia allowing for a quicker recovery and return to normal activities.
The liposuction procedure may last from one to five hours, depending on the amount of fat being removed. The doctor will use either local anesthesia or general anesthesia, again depending on the size of the area(s) being treated, as well as several other factors.
