Liquid Lipo is the latest and greatest liposuction technique on the market today that uses a fat dissolving solution to liquefy any unwanted fat. The smooth process of Liquid Lipo provides patients with better results than ever before because now, we are now able to remove greater quantities of fat from the body. With this great new technology, there is less bruising, swelling, and downtime. Liquid Lipo is our most popular procedure that offers the greatest result and patient satisfaction.
BEFORE LIQUID LIPO
Prior to Liquid Lipo surgery, a complete medical history will be taken to evaluate the general health of the patient. A careful examination of the areas wanting to be improved is also conducted. Dr. Thomas will discuss with the patient what can realistically be expected. The procedure, type of anesthesia to be used, and possible risks and complications are also discussed. Preoperative instructions will most likely include the elimination of certain drugs containing aspirin for your safety to minimize the possibility of excess bleeding during surgery. Antibiotics may be prescribed prior to surgery to prevent infection. The patient may also be advised to bathe with an antiseptic soap for several days prior to surgery. Before and after pictures will be taken to document the amount of improvement.
THE LIQUID LIPO PROCEDURE
With Liquid Lipo, we use a highly concentrated, fat dissolving solution to gently liquefy and remove fat cells from the body. The cannula, which is the wand that is used to remove unwanted fat from the body, is about half the size of a #2 pencil. This small device allows us to remove the fat while only leaving a scar about half the size of your pinky nail-almost unnoticeable! With gentle suction of the cannula and fat-dissolving saline solution working together, this allows the cannula to move more freely, and remove greater quantities of fat than SmartLipo. Using this revolutionary technique, fat can be removed from the body with significantly less force than older liposuction techniques so Dr. Thomas can sculpt and contour the body ideally and beautifully. This significantly lessens the possibility of trauma to surrounding areas.
Because the process is so mild, unlike SmartLipo which can be quite uncomfortable because it is done with local anesthesia, Liquid-Lipo is typically performed as an out-patient procedure in our relaxing surgical center located in Winter Park. On average, the entire procedure takes between 30 to 45 minutes for each part of the body that is being treated.
FOLLOWING LIQUID LIPO
The greater part of our Liquid-Lipo patient’s find they can return to their normal routine and daily activities immediately following the procedure. Liquid-Lipo has been referred to as “Weekend Lipo” because the procedure is minimally invasive and patients have little or no downtime!
