Liposuction and the Battle of the Bulge
Liposuction has been around since the 1980’s and is a proven, reliable fat reducer. It is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the United States. A doctor uses a small hollow tube called a cannula. Suction is applied as the cannula moves through the fat deposits and truly sculpts the body. It is particularly effective at removing fat in legs, abs, on the back of the arms, flanks, hips, face and neck.
Liposuction is a minimally invasive method of fat reduction so there is soreness, bruising and swelling for up to ten days. Results are dramatic and long lasting. The procedure is a good option for reducing larger fat deposits or excess fat. The ideal candidate is physically fit and eats well-balanced meals but is unable to reduce a fatty deposit that is well localized.
“One big advantage to liposuction is that during a procedure, multiple areas of the body can be addressed,” says Dr. Hansen.
Prospective patients should set their goals, know their options then knowledgably make their decision before undergoing a liposuction procedure.
Tumescent liposuction involves injecting a large volume of fluid made up of local anesthetic and adrenaline into the tissue. The procedure shrinks the capillaries, which reduces bleeding, and hardens fat making it easier to remove. This procedure reduces bleeding during liposuction and promotes a faster recovery.
