Body Contouring | Liposuction | Lehigh Valley
Regardless of how strenuously you diet and exercise, those unsightly bulges around the abdomen, buttocks and thighs often will not disappear. Through our artistic body sculpture technique, we can enhances your body’s natural definition as a sculptor creates a fine work of art. We utilizes the tumescent method and is certified in Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction, the most advanced liposuction technique.
There are several different methods we use when performing liposuction, including tumescent liposuction and ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL). In all types a tiny incision is made in as inconspicuous a place as possible. A cannula (small tube) is inserted and moved back-and-forth beneath the skin, breaking up the fat layer and suctioning it out. Tumescent liposuction uses fluid injection, which facilitates fat removal, reduces blood loss, provides anesthesia during and after surgery, and helps to reduce the amount of bruising after surgery. UAL liquefies fat with ultrasonic energy and is highly precise.
After surgery, drainage tubes, compression garments and antibiotics may be needed to facilitate the healing process. Patients are encouraged to walk as soon as they are able and many return to work within a few days, although strenuous activity should be avoided for about a month. Results are visible immediately, though improvement may continue as swelling subsides during the first three months.
