At North Texas Plastic Surgery, we pride ourselves on providing high-quality aesthetic results for all of our patients. Our Harvard-trained, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sacha Obaid combines skill with artistry to help you achieve the look you desire to feel your best. We also believe in providing you with options so that you can feel good knowing there is a procedure for your specific needs.
This applies to our liposuction surgery as well. We understand that everyone is unique and has different needs and concerns when it comes to addressing their body. While traditional liposuction may be a viable option for most individuals, we believe in using the latest technologies and methods to best treat our patients.
In the paragraphs below we’ll outline the different liposuction options we offer at North Texas Plastic Surgery. It’s important to note that liposuction is not intended as a weight loss solution, but rather a way to tone and sculpt your body of stubborn pockets of fat which don’t respond well to diet and exercise. Regardless of which option you choose for your procedure, your liposuction results will last best when combined with a healthy lifestyle.
The liposuction options we offer at our office include:
- Tumescent liposuction: This is one of the most common liposuction procedures performed. This method often uses a localized aesthetic solution, generally made of lidocaine and epinephrine, to numb the areas being treated. This also helps reduce bleeding and aids in the removal of the fat which is performed by a thin, hollow tube called a cannula. This procedure can be performed under general anesthetic as well.
- VASERlipo® System: This system is a minimally-invasive procedure which uses ultrasound technology to target areas of fat around your body. Because of its design, it features accuracy and precision beyond that of traditional liposuction without damaging the surrounding tissue. This helps reduce recovery time and also minimizes bruising, even in sensitive areas of the body.
- Vaser PowerX® System: Part of the VASERlipo® System, this procedure uses a power-assisted liposuction device with ultrasound and a rotational cannula to remove pockets of fat. With the technology used in this system treatment sessions are much quicker than traditional liposuction sessions while also minimizing damage to the surrounding skin and tissue. Its unique design allows for further customization of treatment over other liposuction options.
- Laser-assisted liposuction: Also known as SmartLipo and laser lipolysis, this system uses a laser to quickly dissolve fat in targeted areas while also tightening the skin in the area being treated. This minimally-invasive procedure produces less bleeding, bruising, and swelling and also reduces recovery time. This procedure can be performed using local or general anesthesia.
As you can see there are many options when it comes to addressing your body contouring concerns. During your consultation, your doctor will thoroughly discuss with you which procedure will be best to treat your individual needs while also going over your candidacy for the treatment. Our aim is to provide you with a safe and efficient means to achieve your cosmetic goals.
