Slim and reshape your body, perfectly.
Many individuals find that certain areas on their body do not respond to a reasonable level of fitness and exercise. Despite a healthy diet these patients continue to have “stubborn” areas of fat deposits and disproportionate body contours. This is often due to heredity or family traits. The judicious use of liposuction can improve your body contour and proportion by selectively removing localized or regional fat deposits.
Liposuction uses a variety of techniques. One of these, the tumescent technique infuses the fatty tissue with sterile normal saline and a vasoconstricting agent to minimize blood loss as well as a local anesthetic before suctioning the fatty tissue out. Another technique is known as ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty, or UAL. This method uses an ultrasound probe to break up the fat cells before they are suctioned out of the body. In PAL, or power assisted liposuction, a vibrating probe is used to break up the fatty architecture and assist in the ease of suctioning the fat.
Not all the fat removed is thrown away. Often patients have unwanted areas of depression and hollowness or flattening that is easily addressed with fat transfer and grafting at the time of liposuction. The harvested fat is prepared for grafting in a sterile fashion and is re-injected in areas of fat loss such as the face, cheeks and buttocks. These techniques have been refined in the last several decades so the transferred fat has a reasonable chance of grafting with good long term results.
