The power-assisted liposuction technique is also known as the “Super-Wet” approach because Dr. Gutowski will inject a solution comprised of saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine into the designated treatment area to make the fat cells easier to remove. A cannula attached to a power-aided motor is then inserted and used to remove the targeted fat cells in a controlled manner. Power-assisted liposuction allows Dr. Gutowski to remove unwanted fat in a more efficient manner with less trauma than regular liposuction. In many cases, this procedure can be performed awake or with mild sedation.
SmartLipo & Laser-Assisted Liposuction
Laser-assisted liposuction uses laser energy to heat, break apart, and liquefy the fat cells before they are removed from the body. SmartLipo procedures generate heat from the laser to stimulates collagen production which promotes tighter skin, particularly in the area under the chin and neck. SmartLipo procedures are able to produce maximum body contouring results because more fat cells can be removed during a treatment session, and the heat from the laser stimulates collagen production and works to tighten and tone the skin in the treated area.
Water Lipo, or water-assisted liposuction, is a new technique that uses a pressurized stream of water to remove unwanted fat. The water loosens the fat, which is then removed from the body with a steel tube or cannula. This liposuction method is considered to be one of the most gentle and least invasive treatments available and has minimal downtime or risk of side effects associated with it.
VASER & Ultrasound Liposuction
These techniques use ultrasound technology to break apart and liquefy fat cells making the fat cells easier to remove from the body. By using ultrasound to break apart the fat cells prior to their removal, this liposuction technique provides patients with smoother, quicker results. VASER liposuction can be performed using a local anesthetic, which reduces any downtime or recovery period associated with the treatment. Many patients experience noticeable results after just one VASER liposuction treatment with final results of the treatment becoming visible within three to six months of the procedure.
Common liposuction treatment areas include:
- Bra roll
- Inner and outer thighs
- Love handles
