Liposuction has enabled many people to achieve more defined body contours by removing pockets of excess fat, but it's not right for everyone. Your unique cosmetic goals may or may not be achievable with liposuction. If they are achievable with liposuction, you'll have to decide which of the types of liposuction will meet your expectations. The best way to find out what these options are is to consult an experienced plastic surgeon.
Our plastic surgeon, Dr. George Chatson, provides the liposuction technique he has found to be of the greatest benefit to our patients. He uses a system called Smartlipo™, which prepares the fat to be removed with power-assisted liposuction.
Smartlipo uses a laser to break apart and liquefy fat cells. The melted fat cells are then suctioned away with a second instrument called a cannula. Liquefying the fat before it is removed results in:
- A less invasive, less traumatic fat removal process
- Optimal aesthetic results
- Faster post-op recovery
- Less bruising
During a consultation with Dr. Chatson, you can discuss your goals for your body and whether a liposuction procedure is right for those goals. You can also discuss the benefits and risks of Smartlipo and make an informed decision when choosing a liposuction technique.
