The skilled physicians at Facial Plastic Surgicenter offer a variety of liposuction options to patients in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Annapolis and the surrounding areas of Maryland.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is one of the greatest innovations in plastic surgery because it allows large volumes of fat to be extracted while leaving virtually no scars. We offer our patients the latest technology in laser-assisted liposuction, using a laser that specifically targets water in the soft tissues. The laser energy is used to break up the tough, connective tissue under your skin, making it easier and less traumautic to suction out the fat. This laser system also allows simultaneous laser treatment and fat aspiration, reducing the length of your procedure.
Benefits of Liposuction
There are many benefits to consider when comparing laser-assisted liposuction to conventional liposuction. These include:
- Enhanced skin tightening via stimulation of collagen production
- Improved viability of harvested fat cells when using aspirated fat for fat grafting
- Decreased bruising
- Less pain
- Ideal for treating dense fibrous areas, such as during gynecomastia surgery or secondary liposuction
Who is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
If you have specific areas of stubborn fat that you would like to target, then you are a potential candidate for liposuction.
How are Liposuction Procedures Performed?
There are two main steps in the liposuction procedure. In the first stage, a solution containing lidocaine (which numbs the area) and epinephrine (which constricts the blood vessels in order to decrease bruising) is injected into the area. In the second stage, a cannula connected to a high power suction device is used to extract the fat. Liposuction can often be performed without the need for general anesthesia, which reduces costs and makes recovery a breeze.
