What is Liposuction?
This is a popular and common aesthetic procedure that removes excess fat from the body, face, or neck and improves the contours and shape of targeted areas. Also referred to as lipoplasty, liposuction can have dynamic results when performed by highly trained physicians such as Dr. Wigoda.
Liposuction can be successfully performed on multiple areas of the body, such as the:
- Abdomen and waist
- Breast and chest area
- Cheeks, chin, and neck
- Calves and ankles
- Inner knee
- Upper arms
How is Liposuction Performed?
During a typical liposuction procedure with Dr. Wigoda, small incisions are made near the treated areas. Incisions are kept small and, when possible, are hidden within the natural folds and creases of the skin. The fatty tissues are injected with a solution of epinephrine and lidocaine, anesthetizing the area and minimizing blood loss during the procedure.
A hollow tube, also known as a cannula, is inserted through the incisions and moved back and forth within the area to break up the fat, which is then extracted through specially-designed vacuum suction. Patients typically have the option to have this procedure under general anesthesia or sedation.
Ultrasound Liposuction in Fort Lauderdale
Dr. Wigoda also offers the option of ultrasound-assisted liposuction, which causes fat cells to liquefy and allows the cannula to move and extract the fat more easily. This causes less trauma to the tissues and often results in less healing and less time in the treatment room. This option can be discussed during your consultation at our Cooper City office.
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
Men and women who are at a healthy body weight but who have areas of excess fat that are difficult to target with exercise may be candidates for liposuction at Forever Young Med Spa. Liposuction is not a weight loss alternative or a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. During your consultation with Dr. Wigoda and our medical team, we will assess your health, medical history, aesthetic goals, and more to help you determine if liposuction is right for you.
