Liposuction For Women Atlanta
Liposuction is a great way to sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat. This procedure continues to gain popularity with women. Women often have fat deposits that are genetic “gifts” that can’t be removed with diet and exercise. Liposuction is perfect for these women. Common areas addressed in women are the abdomen, lovehandles, saddlebags, inner thighs, backs, arms and chins.
Liposuction is perfect for post pregnancy Moms. This surgery is great for sculpting unwanted bulges. It is also a great headstart for women seeking to improve body image while losing weight.
During the past decade, liposuction, which is also known as “lipoplasty” or “suction lipectomy,” has had several new refinements.
What are the different techniques for liposuction?
There are several types of liposuction that are being marketed. The traditional tumescent liposuction remains the gold standard method for removal of fat. In this procedure, the fat layer is infiltrated with a solution containing local anesthesia, epinephrine (adrenaline), and IV fluid. This solution numbs the fat and contracts the blood vessels. It allows the surgeon to remove more fat with less risks of bleeding.
All of the other techniques involve tumescent techniques with additional steps. There is Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) that has a mechanical handpiece that supplements the motions of the surgeon. There is Laser Assisted Lipolysis (proprietary names include SmartLipo). This technique is done in an office setting under a tumescent setting. Laser Assisted Liposuction is for SMALL volume liposuction only and often requires multiple session to remove fat.
Dr. Jeffords uses Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL) by Lysonix. The Ultrasonic Liposuction method is the most powerful way to tighten the skin. After infusion of the fat with tumescent, the ultrasound probe emulsifies the fat and tightens the skin. With this technique, there is less bruising, less swelling, and less pain. Looking at the results shows the amazing results that can be achieved with this technique.
You can also use fat to enhance deficit areas like your buttock. A Brazilian Buttocks Lift reshapes the hips and abdomen. The suctioned fat is then injected into the buttocks for a fuller, more refined shape.
