Atlanta Liposuction surgery
Liposuction is effective, even if thinking about how it works is not for the squeamish. Don’t let the idea of the process (which can be likened to using a vacuum to clean away fat) put you off undergoing a body contouring procedure which could give you the shape you’ve always dreamed of having.
Liposuction surgery can change both your appearance and your confidence levels. But it’s not offering you an easy way out. Some of the success of the procedure is up to you.
Our experienced doctors know that for lipo to really work, someone wanting liposuction shouldn’t be too overweight and should start on an exercise routine and a healthy diet before surgery. The reasons are simple. Keeping the amount of fat to be removed within reasonable limits makes the surgery more effective and considerably safer. If you are already in the swing of a healthy lifestyle, you will be fitter when you undergo the procedure, and are more likely to maintain this lifestyle afterwards. This in turn will lessen the chances of the fat returning in the future.
Sound harsh? Just think how nice it will be to be rid of those horrible fat deposits and keep them away. There’s no better incentive than that. And with a healthy lifestyle, you should be able to enjoy the effects of the liposuction surgery for a long time.
The chance to sculpt your body
Liposuction is a very popular form of plastic surgery both for men and for women. Areas most frequently treated are “saddle bag” thighs and “love handles” but body contouring can include the upper arms, back, waist, breasts, hips, and buttocks. Even knees can be sculpted with lipo, and very fine techniques can be used for extremely delicate work, like creating a male “six pack”.
Lipoplasty (also known as liposuction, lipo or, sometimes as liposculpture) can also be combined with other plastic surgery like butt, breast or face lifts, or with breast augmentation. In combining processes, the fat is removed from where it is not wanted and transferred to where it’s needed.
The various types of liposuction
There are many liposuction techniques available in Atlanta, including more recent ones like tumescent and laser liposuction procedures such as Smartlipo contouring, which are taking the fat removal sector by storm. There are also three traditional techniques. All processes work on the principle of breaking down fat in problem areas, but how it’s done, is what differs.
The traditional techniques are Suction Assisted (SAL); Power Assisted (PAL) and Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction (UAL). SAL and PAL both use pressure to break down the fat, though SAL is a manual procedure and PAL is mechanical. UAL uses ultrasound to turn the fat into a liquid before it is removed from the body. SAL is the most cost effective of liposuction techniques available, but PAL is usually more comfortable and faster and UAL is seen as the least traumatizing of the three techniques.
Using the tumescent technique means there is no need for a general anesthetic or for sedatives and narcotics. It also reduces blood loss. The technique uses a diluted local anesthetic and a capillary constriction agent injected into areas of localized body fat. The fatty areas swell up and become firm, making liposuction easier.
Laser liposuction, or smartlipo, uses laser technology to melt unwanted fat in small areas with fiber-optic lasers. At the same time it tightens the skin, preventing sagginess forming where fat is removed.
In many instances the old and the new are combined. Liposuction is better for large areas of fat, while lipolysis (laser liposuction) is effective in small areas such as the neck and chin. It also assists a surgeon by melting the fat before surgery, so making it easier to remove.
Non-surgical and non-invasive fat removal techniques are available, including stand-alone laser liposuction like Laserlipo Atlanta, injections, and freezing, but as none can remove as much fat in one go as liposuction itself, so involve multiple treatments over an extended period to achieve results.
Calculating the costs
The price will vary with the body area and the technique used. To make it more affordable, talk to your surgeon about options to suit both your needs and your pocket. Also ask about financing and whether there are specials running or scheduled soon.
