Liposuction in Alexandria, LA

Liposuction procedures are designed for people seeking to have excess fat removed from various areas of the body in order to reshape, sculpt, or contour their physique.

What is liposuction?

As a procedure, liposuction is straightforward. Liposuction breaks up fat in a targeted area of the body to be extracted via a surgical instrument or a vacuum. It is important for us to stress, liposuction is not meant as a method of weight loss or a cure for obesity. The purpose of liposuction is to give patients the option to enhance certain features of their body.

Most common targeted areas include:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Back
  • Love Handles
  • Thighs

How is liposuction performed?

Procedures for liposuction in Alexandria, LA can be performed using several methods. One of the most popular methods of liposuction is tumescent liposuction. During this procedure, the patient is numbed in the target area with a local anesthetic, followed by an injection of a numbing solution into the tissue that is to be removed before a cannula (small, thin tubes) is inserted into incisions to remove the fat with suction.

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction is performed using a cannula with ultrasonic capabilities. The ultrasound method liquefies the fat, making removal easier. Ultrasonic liposuction is most useful when extracting thicker fatty tissues, usually from the abdomen or back.

The final method is laser-assisted liposuction. This form of liposuction uses lasers to liquefy fat before micro versions of cannula suction out the fat though smaller incision sites. Most liposuction procedures can be performed as an outpatient procedure.
