MicroAire Liposuction in Oklahoma City
Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgeries in America, with over 200,000 procedures performed annually. The procedure involves removing fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise with a tube and suction device. Recent advances in power assisted liposuction technology allow for greater precision and effectiveness during the procedure.
When to Undergo Power Assisted Liposuction in Oklahoma City
Power assisted liposuction is ideally suited to patients with healthy diets and lifestyles who nonetheless retain fatty deposits that don’t respond to proper diet and exercise. Advanced liposuction can target many areas of the body, including:
- Neck and chin
- Upper arms
- Hips and thighs
Good candidates for this kind of liposuction are young and have a stable body weight. Liposuction is not a weight loss method and is not suitable for obese patients.
How does it work?
You will receive local or general anesthetic depending on the size of the fatty deposit. After making a small incision, the doctor inserts a tiny cannula device that targets and liquefies fatty tissue without harming the skin or other tissues. A cannula, or small tube, is then inserted through the incision, and the fat is sucked from the patient’s body.
What are the benefits of MicroAire liposuction?
By liquefying the fat with the power assisted device, your surgeon is able to remove fatty deposits with minimal trauma to the surrounding tissue. This minimizes the pain, swelling, and soreness that is common after surgery.
What happens after the surgery?
Your surgeon will place a small drainage tube beneath the skin to help prevent fluid build-up. A supportive garment will help control swelling. Initial pain and swelling will fade after a few days, during which you may be prescribed medications.
