Body Contouring Options
Generally, liposuction removes unwanted fat by suctioning it through a small tube – called a cannula – inserted through very small incisions. Dr. Bogdan offers the following liposuction techniques:
“SuperWet” Liposuction involves injecting the area with a minimal volume of a solution of local anesthetic, saline, and epinephrine. This surgical technique enables Dr. Bogdan to fully visualize the contours that you want to have addressed, without overly distorting the anatomy. This allows for more accurate contouring of your troubled areas, and minimizes discomfort, bleeding, and bruising. This type of liposuction is done with assistance of general anesthesia, and has a short and comfortable recovery time.
Power Assisted Liposuction utilizes relatively new technology which allows the tip of the cannula to vibrate at a very high speed. This vibration loosens the fat cells, which allows them to be safely and gently suctioned away. There is generally less bruising, faster recovery time, decreased risk for the patient. This method also allows for greater precision in fat removal, allowing Dr. Bogdan to shape a more natural, aesthetically pleasing contour.
