What is a liposuction procedure?
Patients may find that there are areas in the body with fat deposits that are stubborn and can only be addressed by a liposuction. Patients often complain of fat deposits that no amount of diet or exercise will get rid of. For this, Dr. Ali Totonchi recommends liposuction as an effective means of removing the excess fat to reshape the body in order to achieve a slimmer, more youthful body contour.
Liposuction benefits patients with excess fatty tissue with no or minor skin laxity. It is proven safe and effective and has been widely used for many years by patients to reshape their bodies.
As a body sculpting technique, liposuction will not remove stretch marks. However, liposuction can help remove excess fat in the arms, chest, back, abdomen and waist, buttocks, thighs, flanks and knees.
What is the procedure like?
Liposuction is performed by inserting a small tube called a cannula, which is inserted into tiny incisions made in the skin. Using rocking back and forth motions, the cannula breaks down fat tissue, which is suctioned out. This liposuction technique effectively sculpts the areas where the stubborn fat deposits are located, and results in a slimming effect.
Traditional liposuction is a time-tested technique that effectively gets rid of unwanted fat deposits. In tumescent liposuction, aside from using a local anesthetic, this liposuction technique involves injecting the patient with large amounts of lidocaine and epinephrine. These are directly applied to the fatty tissue and sometimes eliminates the need to put our patients under general anesthesia while the liposuction procedure is ongoing.
Liposuction procedures in our cosmetic surgery facility in Cleveland are typically done on an outpatient basis. Dr. Ali Totonchi advises his patients that liposuction can provide a leaner, more toned appearance that patients can enjoy for a long time, if combined with a healthy lifestyle of proper diet and regular exercise.
