Tumescent Liposuction

Liposuction is a solution to which many men and women turn when their attempts to sculpt their physique with diet and exercise have failed to produce the extent of tightening. “Trouble areas” are a common concern for many people, but liposuction offers a fast, minimally invasive way to achieve the desired physical aesthetic. Using precise technique, board-certified physician Dr. Vitulli can selectively eliminate stubborn pockets of fat and improve your shape, allowing you to experience ultimate confidence in your appearance.

Is Liposuction Right for Me?

Liposuction is the procedure through which accumulated fat tissue is broken down and removed from a problematic area or areas. Some of the common areas women request to have treated include the buttocks, flanks, back, thighs, and abdomen. For men, liposuction is typically requested for the removal of excess breast tissue and also for the abdomen. Dr. Vitulli is an experienced surgeon who can also perform liposuction on smaller areas such as the neck or the knees.

The purpose of liposuction is to refine a troublesome area, not to reduce weight. Ideal candidates with be at or near their ideal body weight and in a place where no weight gain is expected in the future, such as in pregnancy. To determine the treatment plan that would best accomplish your expectations, schedule a consultation with Dr. Vitulli.

Tumescent liposuction

As scientific and technological advances have occurred in medicine, innovative new techniques for fat removal have been developed. Tumescent liposuction is a minimally invasive technique that is popular due to the decreased risk of scarring and complications. The way that tumescent liposuction works is by “wetting” fat tissue beneath the skin with a specific solution that achieves a number of objectives. First, the injected solution has a numbing effect on the treatment area. It also causes constriction in blood vessels, which reduces post-operative bleeding and pain. Finally, fat cells expand after the injection of fluid, facilitating the removal process.

Benefits of tumescent liposuction

One of the considerations that must be made with surgical procedures is postoperative recovery. Due to the advanced technique of tumescent liposuction, most patients experience minimal discomfort and bleeding following their procedure. Another advantage of this procedure is that it does not require general anesthesia, which means there is no “hangover” feeling the day of treatment. Because the instruments are so small, only tiny incisions are made to remove unwanted fat. This means that the chance of scarring is minimal.

Liposuction results

Most people who receive this treatment experience long lasting results. When fat cells have been removed from a given area, they will not grow back. With a healthy diet and regular exercise, it is possible to maintain a svelte physique.
