(Liposculpture)

The appeal of liposuction is understandable. It is a means of removing fatty tissue from a specific area of the body to achieve desirable results that may not be possible with diet and exercise alone. It’s a way of sculpting certain areas of the body that don’t seem to respond to traditional fat-reduction methods. People in Austin have a reliable partner in Dr. Hall. He understands the rewards and limitations of liposuction and makes every patient feel comfortable about their decision.

Is Liposuction Right for You?

As with any surgical procedure, liposuction should not be entered into lightly and should only be considered after consulting with a qualified plastic surgeon. But for those seeking to enhance their body image and esteem with a toned, sculptured look, liposuction can be a very beneficial experience. Ideal candidates are healthy, non-smokers in the near-range of their optimum body-weight with good skin elasticity and muscle tone, and a realistic vision of what they hope to achieve.

Liposuction is:

  • A permanent solution for providing improved contouring and a tighter, more toned appearance.
  • Often used in tandem with other cosmetic procedures like a face lift or tummy tuck.
  • Not an obesity treatment or a replacement for proper diet and exercise.

Advanced Liposuction Solutions

Hall Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center offers some of the industry’s most advanced liposuction solutions, giving our patients a wider range of options. In addition to standard liposuction, we are equipped for Custom Acoustic Liposuction (CAL).

Standard Liposuction

Standard liposuction uses suction to remove excess fatty tissue from a targeted region of the body. The most common areas where liposuction can offer significant improvement are: chin, neck region, back, arms, breast region, abdominal region, buttocks and hips, thighs, knees, and the calf/ankle region. Many patients choose to remove excess fat from love handles, a double chin, flabby upper arms, enlarged breasts or a sagging abdomen.

The procedure can take place in an office surgical facility or in a hospital, and is usually performed under local or general anesthesia. The process begins with a consultation and evaluation session with Dr. Hall. This interaction is an important step in determining your goals and the proper course of treatment.

The Latest Advancement in Liposuction: 6th Generation Tickle Lipo

unnamed-3How it Works:  Custom Acoustic Liposuction, often referred to as “Tickle Lipo” differs from other methods of liposuction because the cannula uses air pressure to create a 3-D infrasonic movement (vibrating and gently twirling).  Tickle Lipo’s unique cannula provides Turbo Infiltration of the tumescent solution, a technique that is appealing for the patient because it means better disbursement of tumescent solution, 25 percent faster numbing, less discomfort and quicker recovery.   At Hall Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center we strive to bring patients the most advanced technology available to give patients the safest and best results.  Ask our office for more information on Tickle Lipo and if this procedure is right for you.

Benefits of Tickle Lipo to the patient:

  • Procedure in many cases may be performed while patient is awake so no general anesthesia is necessary
  • Bruising is lessened
  • Less pain during procedure
  • Faster recovery

Risks

Before undergoing any surgical procedure, you should be aware of possible risks and side effects. During your consultation, Dr. Hall will explain the procedure, provide a realistic assessment of the possible outcome, answer your questions and provide information on any possible risks and side effects, including uneven contours, skin rippling or loosening, nerve damage, irregular pigmentation, infection, clotting, fluid loss or accumulation and reactions to anesthesia or medications.

Recovery Time

In the first few days, it’s normal to experience swelling, pain, bruising or burning. You may return to normal activity as soon as you feel ready. Initial healing time is five to 10 days, depending on the amount of liposuction performed. Strenuous activity is possible after two weeks of healing. Changes may not be evident immediately and contours will improve as swelling subsides. The results are permanent though weight gain or pregnancy can alter the effects. Complete healing will continue for a few months as swelling subsides and the effects of the procedure become more defined.

Follow-up

Patients may need to wear a compression garment or an elastic bandage to compress the skin, control swelling and direct the new contour of the body. Patients will be given directions about care and medication before leaving the facility, and a follow-up appointment will be scheduled.

Recovery Time

In the first few days, it’s normal to experience swelling, pain, bruising or burning. You may return to normal activity as soon as you feel ready, however patients note much faster recovery time of days instead of weeks. Initial healing time is 3 to 5 days, depending on the amount of liposuction performed. Strenuous activity is possible after two weeks of healing. Changes may not be evident immediately and contours will improve as swelling subsides. The results are permanent though weight gain or pregnancy can alter the effects. Complete healing will continue for a few months as swelling subsides and the effects of the procedure become more defined.

What does all of this mean for patients?

  • Can be Performed with or without General Anesthesia
  • Less Down Time
  • Less Bruising
  • Smoother Result
  • Greater Contouring

Follow-up

Patients may need to wear a compression garment or an elastic bandage to compress the skin, control swelling and direct the new contour of the body. With the CAL Liposuction device, patients require less time in the body garment due to quicker recovery and healing. Patients will be given directions about care and medication before leaving the facility, and a follow-up appointment will be scheduled.
