Describe tumescent liposuction?

Describe tumescent liposuction?

Okay: Tumescent literally means swollen or engorged. It describes a method of preparing for liposuction and by itself does not remove any fat. It's intended purpose is to add large volumes of fluid ( physicians use different formulas) to achieve some degree of anesthesia as well as to facilitate the extraction of fat by limiting blood loss or improving the conduction of energy such as ultrasound. ...Read more

14 doctors agreed:
How good is ulthera (skin tightening laser)?

Ultherapy: Ultherapy is fairly new and fda approved. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses high powered ultrasound and the body's own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin. It is very effective considering its no downtime procedure and requiring about one hour for the procedure. More than 80% of patients are very happy with the significant reproducible results. ...Read more

What is tumescent liposuction vs other liposuction?

What is tumescent liposuction vs other liposuction?

Technique: Tumescent liposuction uses fluid to help in extracting fat and minimizing blood loss. Standard non-tumescent liposuction is reserved these days for very small areas. If you need large volume liposuction, tumescent technique is the safest way to go. Please make sure your plastic surgeon is experienced and well-trained. Don't be drawn in to bargain basement prices by inexperienced surgeons. ...Read more

How effective is zerona liposuction?

Not: Zerona is not a form of liposuction . It is a low level laser light that promises to reduce the inches while you lie under it fully clothed. When it sounds too good to be true, it is usually not true. Unfortunately it has not lived up to its hype. ...Read more

Does liposonix work to remove lipomas?

Does liposonix work to remove lipomas?

Wouldn't try it...: I am very skeptical that the procedure works as advertised at all. But as for lipomas, they are not normal fat collections. Trying to break them up with ultrasound is unlikely to work. I'd save my $3, 000 and talk to a general surgeon. Many can be done under local anesthesia in the office. And much cheaper with less pain. ...Read more

Which is more efficient laser lipo or ultrasonic laser lipolysis?

Which is more efficient laser lipo  or ultrasonic laser lipolysis?

Magician not wand: Many people sarcastically say it is the magician and not the wand that are responsible for excellent results. While laser lipolysis may promote some skin contraction, it may also cause significant ski burns or injury if not used properly and may prolong healing. The same is true with ultrasounds. I have used both and do not have a strong preference for either. ...Read more

Liposuction question is the removal of belly fat by liposuction ever done under local anesthetics?

Liposuction : Liposuction can be done under local anesthesia. The real question is whether or not you really want it done under local anesthesia. Generally speaking, every procedure we do can be done under local. However, general anesthesia is used by many surgeons to make the patient as comfortable as possible. Patients have absolutely no pain with general anesthesia during the procedure. They also do not remember any portion of the procedure. With local you would be fully awake for the entire procedure and may have moments where you do feel pain. Also, in order to keep you comfortable you might need a large amount of local which may approach or exceed the usual limits of that medication. In my practice, unless we are planning one small area, i recommend general anesthesia for my patients' comfort. I hope this info helps! ...Read more

Facial liposuction permanent?

Facial liposuction permanent?

Yes.: Liposuction does permanently remove fat cells, however the remaining fat cells can increase in size if there is a weight gain. With aging there is usually a loss of fat in the face and with facelifts and facial procedures we combine fat transfer to the face. Therefore it is key to be cautious before removing fat in the face. ...Read more
