Innovative Fat Reducing Technology
Another way to perform liposuction without surgery or serious trauma is a technique called Tumescent Liposuction. For this, large volumes of a special diluted saline are injected into the fat through a small incision. The targeted areas swell and become “tumescent” or firm so that Dr. Hansen can better distinguish the fat cells from the surrounding tissue. He then removes the fat using the Sciton ProLipo® method of first liquefying the fat and then taking it out with minimal bruising.
With Sciton ProLipo® and the Tumescent liposuction method, a tiny incision is made in the skin, and the saline is then injected into the fat cells making them swell for better visibility. Then, a small laser is used to first liquefy the fat cells and then gently suction and remove them from the area. All this is done using a local anesthetic in a simple outpatient procedure. Unlike traditional liposuction, the FDA-approved ProLipo® procedure is minimally invasive and does not involve bleeding, stitches or trauma. Bruising is minimal. Downtime is only two to three days and results are evident within one week. Sciton ProLipo® Treatment Areas: Sciton ProLipo® is capable of firming and tightening nearly any area of your body.
Most qualified candidates for the ProLipo® treatment can expect to see a new, slimmer shape and tighter skin with a toned, smooth appearance within one week of the procedure.
