Liposuction Techniques 101

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s most recent statistics, liposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure for men and the second most common for women.  Liposuction is ideal for patients who would like to remove small pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise.liposuction-atlanta-georgia

Double board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. David Whiteman frequently discusses liposuction with patients looking to eliminate excess body fat.  As with the other cosmetic procedures he performs, Dr. Whiteman uses the most advanced techniques available to provide patients with optimal results.

Liposuction can be performed almost anywhere on the body with popular areas including the stomach, love handles, thighs, buttocks, and hips. Depending on the patient’s cosmetic goals, Dr. Whiteman will talk with the patient to determine which liposuction technique will best fit their needs. At Southern Plastic Surgery, liposuction techniques include tumescent, super-wet, power-assisted, and ultrasound-assisted liposuction.

Tumescent and super-wet liposuction use a solution of tumescent fluid (saline solution and anesthetic) to be injected into the treatment areas to facilitate removal of fat and minimize blood loss. Super-wet liposuction is similar to tumescent except that it uses slightly less solution for injection. Patients benefit from this technique as there is minimal blood loss and swelling.

The power assisted liposuction technique is similar to the tumescent technique but incorporates a special suction tube that vibrates during the procedure. The vibration loosens fat to allow for easier removal with less damage to the surrounding skin.  Ultrasound-assisted liposuction uses sound waves in addition to fluid injection to liquefy fat and is effective for areas that require precision such as the face.

It’s important to maintain a regular exercise routine and proper diet to maximize body contouring results. ACE Certified Personal Trainer Daryl Madison of Lifestyle Fitness can help find a routine that works best for you.
