Liposuction

Liposuction in Troy, MI, is an efficient, safe, and rapid means of permanently removing excess fatty tissue from the body. Getting rid of stubborn fat from areas like the thighs, buttocks, upper arms and chin can be tough, but this body-contouring procedure makes it much simpler.

Why Should You Consider Liposuction?

You may consider liposuction for a number of reasons:

• You want to achieve a better-proportioned and slimmer body.
• You have tried other methods such as diets and exercise, but you still haven’t gotten the results you are looking for.
• You want visible results that can be seen almost immediately and will last for a long time.
• You are looking for targeted fat reduction.

Which Areas Does Liposuction Target?

With the help of lipo, you can target unwanted fat in any of the following areas:

•  Thighs
•  Calves
•  Ankles
•  Chest

•  Neck
•  Chin
•  Upper Arms
•  Back

•  Abdomen
•  Buttocks
•  Love Handles
•  Flanks

What Is Tumescent Liposuction?

Tumescent liposuction is known as the gold standard when it comes to liposuction techniques. It stands miles above traditional liposuction methods, because it uses specialized microcannula and anesthetic solutions to reduce your fat and contour your body.

The word “tumescent” means swollen and firm. The tumescent solution used in this technique swells and firms the fat cells, making removal easier.

Tumescent solution is composed of normal saline, diluted lidocaine, and epinephrine. Epinephrine constricts the capillaries to prevent bleeding and bruising. Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, safely numbs the region, making the procedure pain-free.

Tumescent liposuction minimizes discomfort during the healing process and leads to a shorter recovery period.

Other Liposuction Techniques We Perform

Ultrasonic Liposuction (VASERlipo)

This procedure involves targeting stubborn fat cells with ultrasound energy, liquifying them for easy removal. Because of this, it involves less trauma to the surrounding tissues than traditional liposuction. The ultrasound energy has the additional benefit of encouraging increased skin retraction.

MicroAire (PAL)

The main difference between MicroAire Power-Assisted Liposuction and traditional liposuction is the type of cannula used. Because MicroAire involves use of a high-tech oscillating motorized cannula, the process is much faster and easier.

The Liposuction Procedure

Tumescent liposuction can take three hours or more, depending on the amount of fat to be removed. First, the tumescent solution is injected into the targeted site. The solution flows into the fatty tissue layer, causing the fat to become swollen and firm.

Next, the surgeon creates tiny incisions in the treatment area. The microcannula is inserted into one of these incisions. It is moved back and forth to loosen the fat cells from their surrounding tissues. The fat is transported out through the cannula tube via medical suction. After all the desired fat is suctioned away, the procedure is complete.

The Liposuction Recovery Process

Once you have returned home following liposuction, the healing process will begin. You will be prescribed pain medication to address any discomfort during recovery.

Swelling and bruising may be present for a time. You must wear a compression garment for a week or two following the procedure to control swelling. This garment also helps keep the skin in the area tight, allowing it to better conform to the area’s new contours.

You will need to avoid rigorous exercise for a while. However, light walking is encouraged. You can most likely return to work within a few days.

Liposuction Cost

The price of your liposuction procedure will be impacted by the details of your specific case. Your choice of technique, the size and number of areas being treated, and the amount of fatty tissue being removed can all affect liposuction’s overall cost.

Patient Testimonials

This was the best decision I have ever made. I met with Dr. Stefani and hired him & received a full mommy makeover. I had met with several doctors as well, as this was a big decision to make. Dr. Stefani made me feel the most comfortable and he has a great bedside manner. Also, to be completely honest after surgery …He exceeded my expectations. I almost cried after I saw what I looked like after surgery. I had 3 c sections prior and nothing was ever the same after that. I feel better than I did before kids and I wish I did this sooner. If you are even slightly hesitant …don’t be! Dr. Stefani is AMAZING.

Dr. Williams is one of the most caring and talented doctors I have ever met! I was diagnosed with breast CA 2 years ago and was referred to him for reconstruction after choosing to do a bilateral mastectomy. Boy was I scared !! He put me at ease right away with great information on what to expect along and seemed to generally care about me even though we had just met! I knew I was in the best hands! Now after 2 years, not to sound weird, I get compliments on my "new" breasts all the time, even my family Dr gave them a big WOW! Cherry on top, he did a Tummy tuck on me to even out new look, and also get compliments all the time!

Dr. Miguel is the absolute best!! I've had rhinoplasty in the past with another surgeon, and I came in for a consultation with Dr. Miguel for an alar base reduction (narrowing of nostrils). He was so honest with his answer, and he told me it was not needed. He said the procedure was unnecessary, and to leave my nose just the way it is. He told me all the things that could go wrong if I were to go forward with this procedure. I am so grateful for his honesty, and I appreciate his conservative approach. If you are looking for a rhinoplasty surgeon and want honest feedback with natural results, please consult with Dr. Miguel.
