What Is Liposuction?

It’s no secret that fat can be stubborn. No matter how perfect your diet and exercise routine may be, it seems there are always areas where fat accumulates and just won’t budge. Liposuction with Dr. Shah can remove stubborn pockets of fat, giving you the slimmer, sleeker, contours that you’ve been working hard to achieve without much luck. With advanced techniques and technologies, liposuction has become more precise than ever, making the procedure much easier on the patient.

At Signature Plastic Surgery & Dermatology, Dr. Shah uses tumescent liposuction, which allows for the tiniest incisions in the target area to remove the unwanted fat. Dr. Shah utilizes Power Assisted Liposuction with Renuvion.

What to Expect from a Las Vegas Liposuction Procedure?

Liposuction with Dr. Shah is done using either local or general anesthesia, depending on the size of the area being treated and the treatment needed to achieve your goals.

First, Dr. Shah will inject the area with a saline solution that is infused with epinephrine and lidocaine. The lidocaine helps to numb the area and the epinephrine constricts the blood vessels, limiting the blood loss and bruising. Next, the cannula is inserted to suction out the fat.

Power-Assisted Liposuction

Power-assisted liposuction uses another special cannula that, in addition to suction, uses rapid vibrations to break apart the fat deposits beneath the skin so that they can be suctioned away more easily. This technique allows Dr. Shah to remove more fat in shorter periods of time, which allows for faster recovery times. It also eliminates the need to be more aggressive with the movements of the cannula.

Both the Renuvion and power-assisted methods of liposuction enable Dr. Shah to effectively access difficult areas of the body, such as the back and the chin. The incision locations are also incredibly small and can be closed with just a bandage.

 

What to Expect from Liposuction Recovery?

Recovery from liposuction can take as little as a few days to a couple weeks depending on the area(s) being treated and the method used. Following your procedure, your treatment areas will be wrapped to reduce swelling, bruising, and discomfort. When the bandages are removed after a few days, you’ll be required to wear a compression garment on the treatment area for at least one month. This will help to eliminate swelling and allow your skin to adapt to its new contours to reduce the risk of sagging skin.

You will most likely experience some bruising and swelling, but these symptoms should resolve themselves in about a week to 10 days. Unless you’ve had multiple areas treated, most patients are able to return to work after just two to three days. As for exercising, you’ll need to wait four to six weeks before continuing any rigorous exercises. Since the incisions are so tiny, scarring is kept very minimal and shouldn’t be noticeable after a few months.
