Fat with Liposuction

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a safe and effective cosmetic surgical procedure that supports patients in reaching the taut, flat midsection that exercise and dieting failed to achieve. Perfect for body sculpting, liposuction surgery can eliminate fat pockets from any area of the body, such as thighs, knees, neck, chin, hips, buttocks, upper arms, and more. This minimally invasive cosmetic procedure uses a small thin tube called a cannula to suction the targeted fat, helping patients achieve a slim and balanced appearance. Innovative technology has allowed for different techniques that improve accuracy and reduce the pain associated with this procedure. Today, liposuction is usually performed via the tumescent technique or with the help of ultrasound imaging or a laser. These modern technologies have transformed liposuction into a much safer and less invasive procedure. Considering Liposuction Surgery?

From the moment I first met Dr. Lalla at one of the hospital support group meetings I decided to make a personal consultation to discuss with him my need for his expertise. During the exam Dr. Lalla has a sincere ease about him that goes beyond his medical knowledge he cares for you as a person. He will discuss the pros and cons of the procedures and then gives you his opinion but ultimately it is your decision. I have found both Dr. Lalla and his wife Gina to be very knowledgeable in all aspects of the journey both caring and devoted as well. I felt my care was paramount to them and their door was always open to me whether I had an appointment of not…If you have any concern they are there.

What Are the Different Types of Liposuctions?

Dr. Lalla uses several liposuction techniques to remove fat from many distinct parts of the body – the thighs, the abdomen, arms, back hips, buttocks, chest, face, calves, ankles, neck, and even on the chin.

  • Tumescent liposuction, a standard form of suction-assisted liposuction, uses high volumes of fluid containing an anesthetic infused directly into the excess fatty tissue. Most plastic surgeons typically use local anesthesia, rather than general anesthesia, when performing this body contouring procedure. 
  • Ultrasound liposuction uses a specialized cannula that transmits ultrasonic vibrations that burst the walls of fat cells, thereby liquefying the fat, and making it easier to remove. 
  • Laser liposuction uses thermal and photomechanical energy to help liquefy the fat on problematic body areas. 
  • Power-assisted liposuction uses a cannula with a mechanized movement, reducing the need to manually maneuver the cannula. 

Liposuction Procedure Overview

Before your liposuction procedure, you will meet with Dr. Lalla to discuss your goals, concerns, and how liposuction can benefit you. After your initial meeting, Dr. Lalla will devise an efficient liposuction plan to target unwanted fat. We will take extra care to carefully explain the procedure and ensure you are comfortable and confident throughout the process.

Depending on your personalized liposuction treatment plan, Dr. Lalla will use a variety of minimally invasive techniques. For a traditional liposuction cosmetic surgery, Dr. Lalla will insert a long metal tube into small incisions made in the treatment area. The cannula then gently moves back and forth, vacuuming out fat cells and providing a new contour. The length of a liposuction surgery depends on the number and size of areas that patients want to treat.

After the procedure, most liposuction patients may return to work within a few days. Patients can expect minimal swelling and bruising; however, this discomfort should ease as healing progresses.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Liposuction?

A viable candidate for liposuction is a healthy individual within 30% of their ideal body weight. Additionally, patients should have some muscle tone, as well as firm and elastic skin. If you are unsure if you are a candidate for liposuction, contact our offices for a one-on-one consultation. We will assess your needs and guide you to the plastic surgery procedure that produces optimal results for your unique goals.
