About Liposuction Newport Beach
You may be aware of the wide variety of liposuction techniques currently available to surgeons and patients, including ultra-sound, traditional lipoplasty, super wet, tumescent, and power-assisted liposuction. Although Dr. Grover has extensive experience with all these methods, he has successfully performed hundreds of procedures using power-assisted liposuction (PAL) in conjunction with either the super wet or tumescent technique.
PAL involves the insertion of a small cannula, or slender tube, attached to a mechanical device that vibrates hundreds of times per minute to loosen fat cells. This allows for easier, more efficient extraction of fatty deposits – with less bruising and discomfort for the patient.
The PAL technique is especially effective in removing fat cells that have accumulated in more fibrous areas of the body, such as the waist (familiarly known as “love-handles”) and chest, and has proven beneficial for patients who have undergone previous liposuction procedures and may have incurred additional scar tissue as a result.
Super wet liposuction involves injecting fluid into a subcutaneous layer of fat prior to removal, which significantly helps reduce blood loss. This method works well for larger volume procedures, and requires general anesthesia.
With tumescent liposuction, large amounts of local anesthesia are injected directly into the fatty tissue beneath the skin, which causes targeted areas to become swollen and firm (tumescent), and eliminates the need for intravenous sedation altogether.
During your consultation at Newport Beach Liposuction, Dr. Grover will determine which treatment plan works best for your body – and gladly address your specific questions and concerns at that time.
