Female Body Sculpting Using 360-Degree Liposuction

Many types of liposuction technology are now available, but virtually all first saturate the treatment area with a numbing solution that causes fat to swell and become firmer. This is called tumescent liposuction, and Dr. Stoker offers a range of liposuction methods that start with this technique. The tumescent solution includes lidocaine, epinephrine, and saline. Lidocaine is an anesthetic, and epinephrine (also called adrenaline) causes blood vessels to shrink, reducing bleeding and bruising.

Dr. Stoker removes the fat using small, thin tubes called cannulas that he inserts through tiny incisions. He selectively removes fat that is more loosely attached to the body, leaving blood vessels, nerves, and skin intact. The skin then shrinks to fit the new contours of the treatment area.

Liposuction is typically performed as an outpatient procedure using local anesthesia, twilight sedation, or a “light” general anesthesia administered by a board-certified M.D. anesthesiologist. The choice of anesthesia depends on the size and number of the treatment areas and patient preference.

What Is Power-Assisted Liposuction?
Dr. Stoker has been using PAL systems for much of his career and has performed studies on multiple generations of models. PAL offers several advantages compared to other liposuction technologies as it is highly precise, creates minimal trauma, and results in less bruising. These advantages mean a faster recovery for patients.

Unlike power-assisted liposuction, manual tumescent liposuction requires the surgeon to vigorously move the cannula to break up fatty tissues, which results in more bruising and bleeding compared to PAL.

Power-assisted liposuction offers a variety of benefits, including:
– More efficient removal of fat
– More control for the surgeon to sculpt precisely
– More effective in fibrous or previously treated areas
– Less trauma to the surrounding tissues
– Less bruising
– Faster recovery
– Less time under anesthesia

The power-assisted system relies on a vibrating cannula tip that gently shakes fat loose and suctions it away in one step. The cannula vibrates at just the right frequency to maximize the efficient removal of fat. The vibration also helps the cannula glide through the fatty layers with minimal force. Power-assisted liposuction gives Dr. Stoker more control and precision, allowing him to focus on sculpting a more beautiful figure for the patient. It also helps minimize a patient’s recovery because there’s less trauma to the body.
