Weighing in on Liposuction!

Liposuction commonly referred to as “lipo” can used to remove excess fat deposits from the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, arms, calves, chest, cheeks, chin, neck and back. The procedure which on average cost New Yorker’s $5,000-$10,000 on average has evolved tremendously over the years. While traditional liposuction which requires risky anesthesia, extensive down time and unsightly scars newer technology such as smartlipo. laser liposuction and vaser liposuction have made the treatment safer and more appealing.

Hi Tech Liposuction

Once performed in a hospital operating room the newest versions of liposuction may be performed in-office as an outpatient procedure by your local dermatologist or plastic surgeon. A probe is inserted into the body that emits laser energy used to destroy the fat cells. These cells are then drained from the body over a period of time. Local anesthesia is used in place of heavier generalized sedation as with traditional liposuction and patients are able to return home the same day enjoying less down time than ever before.

How Safe is Safe

While smartlipo, laser liposuction, vaser and tumescent liposuction are less invasive than traditional liposuction promising shorter downtime there are various serious side effects and complications crucial for patients to be made aware of. Hi tech liposuction can yield potentially disastrous results which include scarring, infection, skin necrosis, dimpling, numbness as well a potential laser burn. Pain can last several moths making it difficult to resume normal activity. Not to mention the treatment often requires the use of compression garments.

A Better Alternative

Up until 2015 the most commonly accepted body sculpting procedure was cool sculpting a process used to freeze fat. However, with a laundry list of complications and potential side effects coolsculpting made non-invasive body sculpting an unlikely alternative to liposuction. Then in 2015 SculpSure came to market ending the the ice age to offering New Yorker’s a safer and more effective way to eliminate excess body fat. SculpSure uses a highly calibrated 1060 nanometer wavelength diode laser commonly used in in surgical procedures for more than 20 years to attack the body’s fat cells stored in the adipose tissue. The procedure which takes a mere 25 minutes eliminates 24 percent – 27 percent of the fat cells in the targeted area which are then flushed through the body’s lymphatic system over a period of 6 weeks to 12 weeks.
