Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the United States. Liposuction is a surgical procedure intended to sculpt the body and remove unwanted fat deposits (lumps and bulges). Although no type of liposuction is a substitute for dieting and exercise, liposuction can remove stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to traditional weight loss methods. Liposuction may be performed on the abdomen, flanks, back, hips, thighs, knees, arms, or neck. Liposuction typically includes more than one site.
Dr. Martins approach to minimize bruising and swelling after surgery is using the tumescent liposuction technique. Tumescent Liposuction is a surgical sculpting fat removal approach that limits bleeding with anesthesia fluid pushed into the tissues. The tumescent technique for liposuction is unquestionably the safest form of liposuction. This technique for shaping the body permits a smoother cosmetic result, less discomfort after surgery and a more rapid recovery.
