Liposuction for Body, Arm and Face
Liposuction treatment allows patients to permanently remove excess fat in areas resistant to exercise. Good candidates for liposuction have areas of fat deposits that are out of proportion with the rest of your body, areas of fat deposits that do not go away with diet and exercise – so called “diet resistant fat” or are patients who are obese and seek alternative to gastric bypass surgery.
Liposuction may be considered to treat areas of excess fat in the stomach, hips, love handles, back, arms, neck, thighs, saddlebags, buttocks, calves, ankles, and breasts (including male breast enlargement). Liposuction is equally effective in both men and women.
Dr. Dedo is an innovator in the field of Liposuction and has developed techniques to artistically sculpt the body into a new shape using delicate instruments. To remove the fatty areas, Dr. Dedo uses small cannulas (straw-like tubes) connected to a large bulb-type syringe. The cannulas allow for minimal scarring, very little bruising, and a less invasiveness. The use of local anesthesia provides numerous benefits, most important being increased safety compared to use of general anesthesia. Additionally, the patient is able change positions during the procedure to give the physician greater accuracy, more control, and clear access to the target areas of the body.
Liposuction is not typically the means to achieve significant weight loss as the amount of fat that can be removed during a liposuction procedure is strictly limited by law. However, a Liposuction procedure in combination with Synergie treatments, a post procedure therapeutic massage which combines vacuum massage with applied pressure to delivers a deep massage with optimal stimulation, stretching, and pressure to subdermal tissues, can improve weight loss and the overall results from the liposuction procedure. Dr. Dedo is the only surgeon in Palm Beach County to incorporate the unique benefits of Synergie with Liposuction to help patients achieve their desired results.
As an alternative to gastric bypass surgery, Dr. Dedo has developed SLABS, Sequential Liposuction and Body Sculpting. For the obese patient, the safety of Liposuction is leveraged in multiple procedures to remove 4 to 6 times the amount of fat allowed during a single procedure. Extending over 6 months or more the timing of the Liposuction procedures allow your skin to conform to deeper tissues. Compared to gastric bypass surgery SLABS patients have a very low likelihood of required additional surgeries to remove excess skin that can result from rapid and significant weight loss. By strategically planning the timing of Liposuction procedures and the order in which specific regions of the body are treated Dr. Dedo has developed an effective and safe alternative to gastric bypass surgery.
The recovery period is typically only two or three days with post procedure pain being described as feeling sore, as if they underwent a vigorous work out. Small incisions that are required to insert the cannulas heal quickly with minimal scaring.
