What’s Liposuction?

Liposuction is very straightforward. It’s a minimally invasive surgery that:
1. Removes extra fat deposits from the body.
2. Contours the area for a smoother result.

Actual patient – Individual results may vary

How Does Liposuction Work?

To remove the fat, a cannula is used to suction the fat. In Dr. Wright’s practice, the size of this cannula never exceeds that of a tip of a ballpoint pen. The cannula will suction out the fat between the skin and muscles – and patients will see results instantly.

To add to the recipe, tumescent solutions are used here, which is local anesthesia. It’s considered to be a much, much safer alternative to general anesthesia. With this solution, the area becomes swollen, and the capillaries shrink – so there’s minimal chance of bleeding.

Actual patient – Individual results may vary

In addition, you will remain awake – and this has many benefits:
1. You can tell us how you’re feeling – read a magazine, play on your iPhone, get on FB, etc.
2. We, on the other hand, will give you 100% focus and may ask you to shift into a better position.
3. This equation, your alertness, and our latitude allow the most accurate results.

Do You Only Do Liposuction by Laser?

See our details regarding laser-assisted lipo. We combine laser technology to loosen the fat and make the skin tighter. We will however surgically remove fat in all cases, to ensure permanent results.
