Widely considered to be a Sacramento plastic surgery specialist, Dr. Hause assists Sacramento liposuction patients in the reduction of fatty deposits in the body for a smoother, sleeker figure. In the paragraphs below, Dr. Hause describes the liposuction procedure
Since its introduction by the Parisian Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Illouz, Suction Assisted Lipectomy, or Liposuction, has become the most common plastic surgery performed in the United States. It is a technique performed to remove unwanted fat deposits from specific areas of the body, including the face and neck, upper arms, abdomen, hips, buttocks, and thighs. Ideal candidates are physically healthy , psychologically stable and have realistic expectations concerning the potential result.
During traditional liposuction small nearly unnoticeable incisions are used to introduce blunt tubes, called cannulas, under the skin. Suction is applied which removes a portion of the fat tissue and leaves the major nerves and blood vessels intact. Recent advances include Ultrasound-Assisted Lipectomy and the “Tumscent Technique” which can decrease blood loss, bruising and post-operative pain. Ultrasonic Liposuction use state-of-the-art ultrasonic energy to melt the fat tissue which is later removed with low pressure suction. Results with ultrasonic liposuction have been as good or superior to traditional high VACUUM liposuction and allows treatment of areas that have traditionally been difficult to improve.
Liposuction is usually performed as an outpatient procedure not needing an overnight stay. Patients wear compressive garment for two to six weeks and usually can return to work in four to seven days. Patients usually have some bruising for ten to fourteen days and the final result may not be evident for two to four months.
