Awake Liposuction is also known as Tumescent Liposuction. It is a popular procedure because the patient remains conscious during the procedure. Patients may communicate with Dr. Stephen Della, board certified plastic surgeon throughout the procedure. This communication ensures the surgery is as effective as possible. This reduces the need for potential touchups.
Awake Liposuction is also a more cost-effective procedure than regular liposuction. It is an outpatient procedure and does not require a hospital stay.
During the procedure, the Dr. Delia will begin by making a series of small incisions. Then, a special solution will be injected into the fatty layer of your skin, tightening the tissue to reduce bleeding and help the surgeon remove excess fat more effectively. Local anesthetic is used to ensure the patient’s comfort. Once the contouring process is complete, the incisions are closed.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LIPOSUCTION?
Liposuction is a safe procedure that contours any part of the body. If you are wondering whether liposuction is right for you:
- Exercise and dieting can’t always get rid of fat. If fatty deposits embarrass you, liposuction allows you to enjoy a more natural shape.
- Liposuction can also be advisable for health reasons. It can be used to remove lipomas, fatty growths that can cause irritation and discomfort. If fat in your thighs, arms, or back is making exercise difficult, liposuction can provide you with a solution.
