Introduction to Liposuction and Body Sculpting St. Charles
How Liposuction Helps Body Sculpting
Localized accumulations of fat which are often inherited and frequently prove impossible to eliminate by exercise or dieting can now be removed permanently by body sculpting with liposuction surgery.
Body fat of an adult tends to increase gradually over the years. After the age of 30, an individual tends to add fat according to a genetically predetermined pattern. This fat distribution often resists effort to diet and exercise it into shape. Examples are belly, hips, upper arms and flanks. People tend to store fat in one or more of these areas.
For many people with these stubborn pockets of fat, liposuction is the only realistic means of changing the body’s shape. In effect, liposuction is equal to focusing the effects of dieting and working out to very specific areas of the body.
Our doctor’s technique is called Tumescent Liposuction. It is much safer than traditional liposuction in that it requires only local anesthesia. Though the fat is permanently removed through surgery, patients have none of the risks (or expense!) of general anesthesia. Tumescent Liposuction infuses the area to be reduced with a solution of local anesthetic and epinephrine.
This allows for comfort and very, very little bleeding or bruising. Since patients are awake and conversing with the doctor, the whole team is aware of patient comfort and the procedure is very gentle. Patients move naturally so the doctor can assess symmetry for a great result. Very tiny cannulas are inserted to make tunnels in fat, and this is then suctioned out. A laser is applied to help loosen fat and tighten skin after the procedure.
Recovery is so quick that most of our tumescent liposuction patients are back at work in 1-2 days.
Our strengths are our hundreds and hundreds of happy patients. We have many repeat patients who, after having one area shaped, return for another, or recommend friends and family.
