What is Liposuction?
Our patients in Boston are also in need of a solution to stubborn fat that diet and exercise simply cannot address. One of the most effective and time-tested solutions for this type of concern is liposuction. Plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Russo performs one of the best liposuction Boston has to offer as it is very effective in removing excess fat in order to reshape the body and achieve a leaner and slimmer contour. The way our body looks is largely dependent on our genetic make-up and there are patients in Boston who try very hard to achieve that perfect figure and yet still fail because their bodies are genetically programmed to resist it. In cases like these, liposuction is a very safe and effective alternative to give our patients in Boston the youthful figure that they have always wanted.
Liposuction basically sculpts the body. For our patients in Boston who are looking to remove stretch marks or cellulite, we can offer other treatment options that will best suit their needs. For those in Boston, liposuction can remove excess fat in the neck, arms, abdomen, chest, back, buttocks, waist, thighs, ankles, calves, flanks, and knees.
What Will Liposuction Do For Me?
Boston liposuction plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Russo traditionally performs the procedure by using small and blunt-tipped tubes called cannulas that are inserted into tiny cuts made in the skin. Fat will be suctioned out of these tubes while your surgeon moves it around to target specific fat deposits to sculpt the area.
The continuous improvement of cosmetic technology in Boston has paved the way for newer and safer liposuction techniques such as tumescent and ultrasound-assisted liposuction to benefit the patients in the area.
For patients in Boston getting tumescent liposuction, aside from the local anesthetic that will be used to numb the area, a large amount of lidocaine and epinephrine will also be injected directly into the fatty tissue, after which the traditional liposuction method is done. Using this method for liposuction eliminates the need to put our patients in Boston under general anesthesia.
Ultrasound-Assisted liposuction, on the other hand, uses the technology of ultrasound to liquefy the fat of patients getting the procedure in Boston. Doing so makes it easy to remove the fat and has been found very effective in targeting stubborn fat in the upper abdomen, on the sides, and excess fat in the back.
Liposuction is usually an outpatient procedure so patients in Boston can have it done either in their surgeon’s office so long as it is properly equipped. Our patients are reminded that they should start eating healthy and have regular exercise after getting liposuction to be able to maintain the results because fat can easily deposit into the treated areas if care is not taken.
