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

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

After 4 cycles of chemotherapy should a liver met start reducing in size ? Is 16 mm classed large ?

Kinetics of response: Faster growing tumors tend to respond quicker, but tumors can be resistant. Typically 4 cycles of chemotherapy is enough time to know whether the disease is responding. Whether to continue treatment depends on the goals of care. Stable disease is better than progression, so more treatment may be fine if side effects are manageable. 16 mm is not large yet still represents millions of tumor cells. ...Read more

Breast implants, butt implants, and love handles lipo suction. Could all of these be done in one operation?

Breast implants, butt implants, and love handles lipo suction. Could all of these be done in one operation?

Not usually advised: The recovery following butt implants can be problematic as many surgeons request that you not sleep on your back for two weeks. This can be extremely difficult because it will be nearly impossible for your to sleep on your stomach following most breast implant procedures, leaving you to recover on your sides only. I would not typically advise simultaneous breast and butt surgery. ...Read more
