Liposuction Fort Lauderdale

Introduction

Liposuction, also referred to as a lipoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes fat from different areas of a patient’s body. This fat is removed or “sucked” out using a stainless steel tube called a cannula which is inserted through a small incision in the skin. The most commonly affected areas are the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, and arms. This procedure has the ability to create the ‘hour glass’ contour every woman desires.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery confirmed that this has been the most common plastic surgery procedure performed throughout the United States. Over 400,000 procedures are carried out in the United States each year. Although the majority of patients undergoing this procedure are women, men can also be great candidates. This procedure is not a substitution or excuse for obesity and it cannot replace regular exercise and good eating habits. This procedure is meant to create and restore the body's natural curves and must be maintained through exercise and healthy eating habits. It can either be performed by itself, or in combination with another cosmetic procedure.

It is usually performed with a facelift, tummy tuck, breast reduction or a brazilian butt lift. Sunrise Plastic Surgery has a team of highly qualified and recognized board certified plastic surgeons that specialize in lipoplasty with many years of experience and very high rankings in customer satisfaction.

Benefits of Liposuction Fort Lauderdale

This procedure can serve not only beneficially to the appearance of the patient, but also to their self-esteem and confidence. It is a safe and effective way to remove excess fat from troubled areas that may be difficult to get rid of with just exercise and healthy eating habits. In most cases, this procedure does not only remove fat but it also improves the appearance of cellulite, especially in areas such as the thighs. In addition to better appearance, it may increase overall health due to the fat loss. Some results are usually seen right after surgery, but the final results will not be seen until swelling has reduced completely.

Methods for performing a liposuction

Sunrise Plastic Surgery offers several different types of lipo techniques that target different areas of the body. Some patients may choose a specific type of method or your doctor may recommend that you go with a certain technique depending on your situation. Certain techniques make this procedure, easier, safer, and less painful.

Suction Assisted Liposuction (SAL)

Suction Assisted Liposuction is the most well known strategy, which utilizes a cannula connected to a vacuum stimulating the decomposition and liquefaction of body fat, allowing it to be easily extracted from the body. This is the best procedure to evacuate a lot of fat in a brief amount of time making it the most utilized method for fat evacuation within trouble zones such as your back, core or buttocks. The prominence of this strategy has risen in the last decade substantially due to its competitive cost. Although this is a great method for fat removal, your body will only remain this way through regular exercise and a healthy diet. Liposuction is not a fast fix for obesity or a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, meaning that patients who are considering a liposuction should consider a lifestyle shift to maintain their new figures. Medical conditions can also be treated with this surgery such as lipomas and benign tumors along with gynecomastia which is when fatty breast tissue develops in a man’s chest.

Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL)

This technique uses a mechanical cannula that removes fat through smaller incisions for a more precise and shorter surgery time. It reduces the amount of physical and manual effort by the doctor especially in areas with fibrous tissue. It’s rapid and small vibrations break down fat effectively and quicker than the traditional lipo. This method does not use heat, therefore, eliminates the risk of burning the patient’s skin. Because this method takes less time to perform, complications and risks are significantly reduced. This results in a more comfortable experience for both the patient and the doctor. It was discovered in a study at Tulane University’s Health Science Department that a significant additional 30% of body fat was removed by this technique rather than with manual liposuction. Bruising and recovery time were also significantly reduced. Although risks are limited with this procedure, patients may still experience excess, saggy, or wrinkled skin which may tighten over time. It is also possible that patients experience moderate changes in skin pigmentation.

Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction (UAL)

Ultrasonic assisted liposuction is another method available to patients, which uses high-pitched waves to liquefy the fat rather than using lasers and vacuums, allowing for an easier and smoother procedure. This method is known to be much less traumatizing to the skin with less bleeding and bruising and produces more natural looking results although patients should be aware that there is a risk of burning, scarring and blistering due to the large amounts of heat produced during surgery. This technique grants the doctor more control over shaping the contours of the body. This technique can be used in two ways; the fat can be suctioned out as it gets liquefied or once the fat is already liquidized-both ways are equally effective. This technique can be used to liquefy fat from trouble areas such as your abdomen, arms, back, and the male chest.

Laser Liposuction Fort Lauderdale

Laser Lipo is a minimally invasive treatment that can help patients get rid of certain areas of fat without undergoing the traditional liposuction treatment. Liposuction can target several areas with excess fat such as the abdomen, hip, thighs, arms, knees, back, chest and male breasts. Laser lipo yields the least bleeding, bruising, and recovery time in comparison to other methods.
Fortunately, laser lipo works well with all body types. Since the procedure is non invasive, it has a much shorter recovery time. Patients can usually go right back to work and simple tasks after a day of rest. A great benefit of laser lipo is that the laser beams permanently inactivate the fat cells, leaving them incapable of storing any more fat. It also promotes collagen reproduction, which gives the skin a healthier glow. The laser also seals the smaller blood vessels, reducing bleeding and inflammation.
Since this method involves thermal energy, the risk of blistering and tissue burning is nonexistent. But this could result in infection and scarring. Just like every other method, skin discoloration is possible.

How is a good candidate for this Procedure

Although Liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle and diet, healthy individuals who are approximately30% from their ideal goal weight and have a good amount of elasticity in their skin along with a good muscle tone are ideal candidates for this procedure. Both men and women are able to have this procedure done as it is used to remove fat pockets that are hard to get rid of merely with exercise and dieting. Patients should also not smoke, or stop smoking approximately two weeks before the surgery as this can create complications and heighten the ercentage of risks involved with the procedure. Ideal patients for this procedure should also keep a positive outlook on exercise and dieting. It is very important to maintain a stable and steady weight before considering this procedure. If you are planning on dropping a significant amount of weight though, or becoming pregnant, liposuction might not be a good idea since the skin can lose a lot of its elasticity and create saggy skin over the abdomen.

Male Liposuction

Just as for women, men can also undergo this procedure and obtain incredible results. This procedure can be performed along with a male gynecomastia to create a slim and slender ontour to the male body while also removing difficult fat pockets that are harder to remove with exercise and diet. Liposuction can heighten a man’s self-confidence, giving him that youthful, teenage abdomen he’s longed for. A substantial percentage of people getting liposuction are male. Studies show that it is easier for a woman’s weight to fluctuate than for a man’s meaning that it is harder for males to shed weight causing “beer bellies”. The increase in men having plastic surgery has been substantial and dramatic. It is safe to say that now the amount of men undergoing liposuction is almost the same as women.

The Recovery

Like all surgical procedures, all of the techniques used for liposuction require a recovery period that can last anywhere from one week to 6, depending on the patient and how quickly their body heals. Many patients experience different levels of discomfort for the first couple of days as well as numbness or burning. After a couple of weeks how ever, the patient should feel well enough to remove compression garments and the body should continue healing and swelling should begin to diminish. It is critically important to follow all directions for the best results. This includes maintaining all compression garments on until you are recommended to do so as this will help the body heal appropriately and also minimize swelling. Your doctor may prescribe antibiotics and other medications to help ease the pain and avoid the risk of infection.

How much is Liposuction in Fort Lauderdale?

Although the quality of this procedure should be considered first, the liposuction cost is also a very important factor. The national average cost for this procedure ranges from $3,000 to $8,000.
