Liposuction in Boston, MA
Liposuction can enhance your appearance and refine the contours of your body by removing pockets of fat in your targeted areas. Inner and outer thighs, hip rolls, abdomen, upper arms, neck, and enlarged male breasts, are examples of such areas. It is especially effective for those areas of the body where diet and exercise are not producing desired results.
During the liposuction surgery, localized deposits of fat are removed to recontour one or more areas of the body. Through a tiny incision, a narrow tube is inserted and used to vacuum the fat layer that lies deep beneath the skin.
We perform liposuction surgery using the external ultrasonic tumescent liposuction technique. These are two of the most advanced techniques in liposuction that help reduce bleeding, post-operative bruising, swelling and pain. The external ultrasonic method uses ultrasound to alter fat deposits, making them easier to remove. In the tumescent liposuction technique, the targeted fat is injected with a physiologic solution before surgery. This causes the fat to swell and improves penetration of the ultrasound wave, leading to easier removal of the fatty tissue.
Typically patients return home the evening of surgery and most return to work within a week. Vigorous exercise is limited for several weeks.
