Muffin top, love handles, thunder thighs, turkey neck, bat wings-you name it, we have seen it. The medical professionals at Rejuve know how hard it is to get your body in the shape you want it. Even with weight loss and exercise sometimes you may have problem areas that just won’t go away. If you have ever thought about liposuction but have shied away because of the invasive nature of the procedure, we have the solution for you.
Liposuction is a body contouring and sculpting technique. It is a means of reducing localized fat deposits that are difficult or impossible to remove with diet or exercise. At Rejuve medical spa, we use Tumescent method is used to anesthetize the treatment area. In the tumescent technique of liposuction very dilute anesthetic solution is injected under the skin into the fat tissue to minimize bleeding and discomfort during the procedure. Safer than general anesthesia, you’re awake for the procedure so you can talk with your surgeon and maintain control of your body.
Afterward, compression garments are worn for drainage and support. Patients usually return to work within 2 to 7 days.
For the fat removal, Dr. Kishor Vora uses three different methods:
- Traditional liposuction where Dr. Vora will make one or more small incisions near the treatment area. A cannula is inserted through these incisions to loosen excess fat beneath the skin. Then, the fat is suctioned out. The entire procedure can take under an hour or up to 3 hours or longer, depending on the number of areas treated.
- Slim Lipo is LASER Assisted Liposuction which uses laser energy to help dislodge fat cells, liquefy fat and tighten the skin in specific areas of the body. SlimLipo can reduce fat and skin laxity to improve the appearance of the stomach, hips, thighs, flanks, buttocks, arms, neck and chin. Because the procedure is less invasive than standard liposuction plastic surgery, it results in a less pain and offers excellent patients results.
- Tickle Lipo, also known as, Nutational Infrasonic Liposuction (NIL) and Nutational Custom Acoustic Liposuction (CAL), is a procedure in which a unique “triple movement” cannula removes fat. This infrasonic vibration interferes with your brain’s pain receptors which suppresses or blocks pain entirely, and feels like being tickled which makes it less painful. This significantly reduces discomfort during a liposuction treatment. It is much faster than other traditional or laser liposuction methods, as well as safer. The unique “triple movement” cannula removes fat without causing trauma to the rest of your body so life is back to normal in days that means faster recovery.
Today’s advanced liposuction techniques are designed to minimize swelling, trauma and discomfort, and recovery from liposuction can be remarkably quick. Many patients return to work just a few days after their procedures, depending on the physical requirements of their jobs and the extent of their procedures. While we can prescribe pain medication, most patients find over the counter options more than enough to manage any post-operative soreness.
Liposuction removes fat cells from your body, and these fat cells will not grow back. However, Liposuction is not a technique for treating obesity. So it is important to maintain a stable weight to ensure that your new look remains optimal.
Since liposuction is designed specifically to target fatty tissue, it will not significantly improve the appearance of loose skin. And for that reason at Rejuve Medical Spa we combine the Liposuction with something called Thermi Tight.
ThermiTight is a non-surgical, minimally invasive skin tightening treatment. During the ThermiTight® application, a tiny probe is used to gently heat specific tissues to a physician selected therapeutic temperature that can contract collagen molecules and stimulate collagen production. This leads to beautiful aesthetic outcomes like lifting or tightening.
