Liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to reduce and sculpt key regions of the abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms and neck. The procedure is generally done using sedative anesthesia in an operating room environment. A skilled liposuction surgeon can create significant improvements to the appearance of the body.
The procedure relies on the use of injected numbing solution (tumescent solution) which is placed beneath the skin while a patient is sedated. Liposuction uses thin tubes placed beneath the skin to selectively remove fatty tissue for a smooth, contoured result. A good liposuction result generally depends on a patient's elastic skin quality. Patients with substantial skin laxity should consider other surgical procedures designed to contour these areas.
Liposuction technology has grown over the past few years. It is now possible to have a liposuction procedure that includes heating with a laser, ultrasound, or fat removal with a water jet. None of these liposuction modalities are required for a good liposuction result.
What really matters in quality liposuction results is the experience and judgement of the surgeon performing the procedure.
I perform several liposuction procedures each week, achieving beautiful, smooth results for patients. My clinic is in Bellevue and Seattle , WA.
