Advances in surgical techniques have paved the way for minimally invasive procedures for liposuction in San Jose. When choosing the appropriate procedure for you, it’s important to consider your body composition and your personal goals, and to explore all of your options.
Here are some of the most popular choices of my patients:
Tumescent Liposuction: This traditional liposuction method includes the injection of an anesthetic solution to increase effectiveness and control pain. A thin tube called a cannula is then inserted through small incisions to suction out fat.
Body-Jet® Liposuction: This technique includes a spray of fluid to dislodge fat and make fat removal easier. Once the fat is loosened, it is removed through a cannula. This technique is often used in conjunction with fat transfer procedures.
SmartLipo™: An alternative to traditional liposuction, SmartLipo uses laser technology to rupture fat cells. The cannula can then remove fat more easily with minimal damage and a shorter recovery time.
VASER® LipoSelection®: This method uses ultrasound to break up fat. Ultrasonic waves make the removal of fat easier and the results more precise.
It’s important to know that some people may not be good candidates for certain procedures. If you have questions concerning a particular procedure, I recommend talking to a qualified plastic surgeon to determine the best option for you.
