Liposuction is the modeling of fat in specific areas of the body to give a smoother, more streamlined figure. It is cosmetic surgery that uses suction to remove fat from the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, neck, backs of arms and any other place where fat has accumulated to give a swollen or lumpy appearance. Dr. Roudner in Miami consults with patients to ascertain the places and amount of fat required to be removed.
It is best to use liposuction gradually so all the fat may not be removed in one session. If this happens, the patient may have dents or an uneven texture to the skin. Dr. Roudner in Miami has many years of experience as well as personal expertise in performing liposuction and will remove exactly the right amount from the right place.
There are three types of anesthesia for performing liposuction. A local, local with IV sedation or general anesthesia may be used depending on the size of the area to be treated and the patientâ€™s overall health.
Dr. Roudner in Miami follows strict safety standards when performing liposuction. He knows that the speed and volume of aspirate are not the criteria for excellence, but safety, quality of results, experience and patient comfort are the measurements to follow. Technique is of utmost importance for a surgeon performing liposuction.
There are several different techniques of liposuction in Miami including different volumes of local anesthesia injected in to the subcutaneous fat. There is a special technique for removing fat from small areas such as the face and chin. There are other techniques that use minimal invasiveness. In Miami, Dr. Roudner will discuss with the patient exactly what their expectations are and choose the right technique for them. He will also discuss their realistic weight and if there are any future plans for pregnancy.
The results that Dr. Roudner gives are long-lasting, but could be affected by aging, pregnancy, lifestyle factors and weight gain. In some cases it will improve the contours of the body and in other cases it may reduce the overall fat in an area. The healing process is gradual and it will take several months for the body to settle into its final appearance. When it does, it will be worth the wait.
