Slim and reshape your body’s contour.
Remove unwanted, excess fat.
Liposuction is one of the top cosmetic procedures in the United States. Both men and women receive this procedure every year. Liposuction slims and reshapes your body’s contour by removing unwanted, excess fat deposits. It effectively treats those stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. If you are looking for liposuction in Las Vegas, see what Apex Medical Spa has to offer!
During the liposuction procedure, fat is removed through a cannula, which is a hollow medical instrument. Think of it like a metal straw that is inserted under the skin.
There are different types of liposuction, some more invasive than others. At Apex Medical Spa, we use vibration-supported liposuction, which is less invasive than more traditional methods. Vibration-supported liposuction is the modern way of surgical fat removal.
With this method, the cannula is moved axially in a fast vibrational mode. This serves in combination with the suction vacuum to microscopically and gently cut and remove fat tissue.
There are many benefits of the vibration-supported technique. First, unlike some more traditional methods of lipo, local anesthesia can be used. Secondly, vibration-supported liposuction needs less force to move the cannula and break up fat. This innovative benefit allows the doctor to work with higher precision.
With the tumescent technique, the volume of dilute lidocaine that is injected into fat is so large that the targeted areas literally become tumescent (swollen and firm). The tumescent technique produces profound and long-lasting local anesthesia of the skin and subcutaneous fat. By eliminating the risks of general anesthesia and the risks of excessive surgical bleeding, the tumescent technique for liposuction totally by local anesthesia has eliminated the greatest dangers associated with the older forms of liposuction.
This allows the patient to be awake during the procedure and walk out afterward, returning to regular activities in a few days.
Both men and women benefit from liposuction. Commonly treated areas for women include abdomen, thighs, waist, arms, buttocks, and back. Commonly treated areas for men include the chest, arms, back, and abdomen.
As long as you maintain your weight, your results should be permanent. The adult body does not readily produce fat cells. So, unless you gain a significant amount of weight, the fat cells will not return.
If you do gain small amounts of weight, the remaining fat cells can increase in size. This can diminish some of the positive results achieved from the procedure.
Therefore, even after the liposuction procedure, it is important to adopt a healthy lifestyle of good diet and physical activity.
You will be able to see a noticeable difference immediately after. However, average time to see the final results is about 3 months. Over the first few months, the treated areas will continue to show more improvements as the swelling decreases.
