Liposuction Patient 37
45-54 year old, 5’ 4”, 170 lb woman treated with liposuction of the knees and inner thighs. These procedures are performed in just 90 to 120 minutes in the office, under local anesthesia. Patients go home the same day as surgery, do not need any narcotics post op for pain control, can get back to work and exercise in less than 24 hours, and results are seen immediately.
Liposuction Patient 26
35-44 year old woman Thigh liposuction typically takes two parts: treatment of unwanted, stubborn fat with liposuction, and treatment of cellulite. This amazing woman was finally tired of dealing with thighs she didn’t like, and came to us for IDEAL thigh liposuction and cellulite treatment! For the last 12 years, we have been developing a proprietary technique that we call IDEAL Liposuction. First off, all devices and instruments used are FDA-approved, unlike some of the liposuction and fat transfer devices being used today. These procedures are usually performed in the office, with only local anesthesia. We typically use Laser Liposuction to reduce dense, fibrous fat, and stimulate collagen formation; Radiofrequency-based skin tightening (Pelleve) to maximize skin contraction; and High Energy Radial Pulse Technology (ZWave), RF, or subcision (Cellfina) to treat cellulite. Patients go home the same day as surgery, do not need any narcotics postop for pain control, and can return to light exercise and work two days after their procedure. We select the appropriate treatment for each patient based on their skin quality, amount of fat and surgical goals. It is best to answer your question during a face-to-face evaluation, when you can discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure, and you can have a physical examination to evaluate for that procedure. I recommend that you find a board-certified, or board-eligible plastic surgeon with whom you are comfortable. Be sure to have all of your questions answered during a face-to-face meeting with your surgeon, and review before and after pictures of similar patients whom have had this procedure.
