Types of Liposuction in Kissimmee, FL

Kissimmee, FL – The term liposuction has become very common these days and every individual in Kissimmee, FL seems to have a certain amount of knowledge when it comes to liposuction. The procedure was mainly popularized due to its glamorization by Hollywood celebrities. Lipoplasty however is a medical term used to refer to any one of the wide variety of procedures involved in the removal of excess fat. Although the goal of these procedures remains ultimately the same, it’s the methods used to achieve that end that vary.

Traditional Liposuction

This is the method that was first used for removal of excessive fat. This is done through suction based surgical fat removal. The surgeon makes an incision in the affected area where a cannula is inserted and moved around in order to break apart fat cells within the deep fat layer. Suction is then done with the use of a vacuum pump which siphons off the excessive fat. Once the surgical procedure is complete the surgeon will determine whether the wound is to be stitched up or kept open. This depends on the expected swelling and bruising. The patient is under the effects of anesthesia during this procedure allowing the doctor to target larger areas. A drainage tube is inserted to remove any fluid buildup in the recovery stage.

Tumescent Liposuction

This method s the most common and is considered the most effective and safest by surgeons in Kissimmee, FL. This method includes making small incisions into the target area where the fat is to be removed from. Thee incisions are then injected with saline consisting of lignocaine which is an anesthetic and adrenaline. The adrenaline is included in order to make sure that the blood vessels contract for a temporary amount of time resulting in lower bleeding. The saline injected is three times the amount of the fat being targeted. The purpose of the solution is to cause the fat to swell up and become firm thereby separating fat and muscle. A cannula inserted into the incision is moved back and forth to remove the access fat through suction. This procedure takes longer than traditional methods, taking up to five hours for completion

Super-Wet Liposuction

This is a smaller version of tumescent liposuction since it makes use of smaller amounts of the saline solution. General anesthesia is also required for this procedure which usually takes 1-2 hours to complete.

Ultra-sound Assisted Liposuction

This technique is used for the removal of dense fat which is found in difficult areas such as the back, chin, neck, knees and calves. Ultrasonic energy is emitted through a cannula and directed at the far deposits which break up as a result and are then liquefied. Suction is used to siphon the fat out of the incision. It is usually a follow-up procedure after the tumescent procedure in order to clean any residue.

Power Assisted Liposuction

A powered cannula which can produce rapid vibrations is inserted into the insertion in order to break up the fat cells. The doctor can use this method for more precision and accuracy. This method causes less discomfort and scarring and allows for the procedure to be taken care of quickly.
