Fit Better in Your Cute Jeans
If you are longing to look better in your cute jeans and having trouble meeting that goal, you might be surprised at the technology that is available to you. There are NEW techniques in liposculpture that offer a gentler, kinder and absolutely safer technique for removing unwanted fat. If this sounds like something you may be interested in, call us to discuss how Tumescent liposculpture assisted by Lipolite laser lipolysis can work for you.
This technique has three important parts:
Step 1: Tumescent fluid is used to bathe the areas to be treated. Tumescent fluid is a very dilute mixture of saline with lidocaine (an anesthetic) and epinephrine (to close off the blood vessels around fat cells). This important step adds additional time and effort on the surgeon’s part but is well worth it for the patients. The use of tumescent anesthetic minimizes bleeding during the procedure making it so much safer. It also decreases bruising and leads to shorter recovery time.
Step 2: Liposculpture is performed with the use of very small “cannulas” or metal tubes. These tubes are as small as the tip on a pen, which is a major advance in technology. They are connected to a suction tube to pull the fat out. Because they are so small, we no longer have to make large openings to do the procedure, so, the scars left are very small. So small, in fact, that they do not even require stitches. This allows us to deliver amazingly precise sculpting minimizing the risk for irregularities (lumpiness) and allows for more smooth results. It also ensures less trauma during the procedure which leads to less bruising and faster recovery.
Step 3: “Lipolite” laser lipolysis – is the latest in laser lipolysis (like Smart Lipo). With Lipolite, a special tiny cannula with a laser tip is inserted in the openings made for liposculpture and the areas are heated using the laser. This provides more coagulation so there is less bleeding, less bruising, faster recovery. Another important advantage is that heating the skin during liposculpture will allow for better skin contraction. For older patients at risk for loose skin after lipo, Lipolite is a major advance.
