· Liposuction is a safe, minimally invasive surgical procedure. Microliposuction is designed to remove inches, not pounds, and is ideal for areas that do not respond well to diet and exercise, like the lower face, neck, chin and jowls. Microliposuction is also effective for hard-to-contour areas around the waist, arms, thighs, buttocks, knees, ankles and abdomen. Microliposuction is performed by the surgeon under local anesthesia, using a method that minimizes recovery time and maximizes safety. During microliposuction, fat deposits are removed by means of a cannula, a very thin, hollow tube attached to a vacuum. This surgical instrument is inserted and then manipulated under the skin by the surgeon. The subdermal fat is then suctioned out through the tube. The microliposuction result is immediately improved body contour in hard-to-target areas. The refined procedure gives a safe, predictable and satisfying cosmetic result. Post procedure, special elastic bandages for compression, and dressings for drainage, are applied. The microliposuction patient can usually return to light to normal activities within twenty-four hours, though a more extensive procedure can require up to a week to fully recover. Downtime will be determined at your consultation.
