is a procedure that removes excess fat cells from localized deposits
of fat. The surgery is designed to improve the overall body shape
by removing the exercise resistant localized fat deposits. Prior

The infusion contains numbing medication and a medical agent which

solution is called tumescent solution and the technique for liposuction
with large fluid infusion is called tumescent technique. This
is the type of surgery that is performed in our office operating
room. Following injection of the tumescent solution, small (3mm)
incisions are made and hollow or ultrasonic cannulae are placed.
The ultrasonic cannulae is used for more complete removal of
volumes of fat. The hollow cannulae is used for small volumes
to adjust contour of the upper layers of fat following placement of
the ultrasonic cannulae. It should be mentioned that fat cells
do not divide. They grow by increasing in size but an individual
has a fixed number of fat cells, which are unchanged from birth.
Therefore removal of localized deposits of fat affect a permanent
change. Common locations for liposuction include the chin, cheeks,
upper arms, abdomen, buttock, hips, thighs, and calves. The length
of the procedure varies from one to three hours. The procedure
is typically performed as an outpatient in our accredited operating
room. For individuals who have medical problems it may be necessary
to perform the surgery in the hospital.
