Technique vs. Technology

Many of my Tallahassee plastic surgery patients are somewhat overwhelmed by the many different types of liposuction available. They want to know which method (such as SmartLipo™ or tumescent liposuction) is going to be the most effective. The truth is, a surgeon’s mechanical skill, rather than the equipment used, is the best predictor of results.

  • New Is Not Always Improved

Many sophisticated new fat removal techniques are available, but that does not mean they are necessarily superior to traditional methods. Make sure that you are choosing a trusted procedure, rather than a trendy one. You want a method that has a good record for safety and effectiveness.

  • One Size Doesn’t Fit All

Although something may be touted as being the “latest and greatest,” it isn’t necessarily the best option for you. A reputable and trustworthy surgeon will evaluate your individual situation and recommend the most appropriate course of action.

  • Who is Performing Your Treatment?

Even the most sophisticated treatments can lose their technological advantages in inexperienced hands. That’s why it’s important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon who is experienced with your chosen procedure. This is the best way to ensure a pleasing and successful outcome.
