Liposuction Q & A

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that slims and reshapes problem areas of your body. The process removes fat and contours the treated area for a more proportionate appearance.

Liposuction can potentially take care of several large areas at one time, and in many cases, you only need one treatment per area. The results are long-lasting and potentially permanent if you continue to maintain a stable weight and have good fitness habits.

Liposuction treatments work well on the following areas:

  • Thighs, hips, and buttocks
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Neck, chin, and cheeks
  • Upper arms

Are there alternatives to invasive liposuction surgeries?

Dr. Colon offers several minimally-invasive liposuction procedures that can be done under local anesthesia and a mild sedative. These technologies include:

  • VASERlipo® ultrasound liposuction
  • body-jet® water-assisted liposuction (WAL)
  • MicroAire® power-assisted liposuction (PAL)

Typically, these alternative procedures are a gentler form of liposuction and men and women tend to have less blood loss than with traditional liposuction methods.

VASERlipo eliminates fat and smoothes skin using ultrasound waves to break up fat in small or large areas. It leaves surrounding tissue unharmed.

The body-jet water-assisted liposuction uses the power of water to gently contour your body. This method gently detaches fat from the surrounding tissue with a flat water-jet, keeping the surrounding tissue intact. It’s safe, effective, and recovery time is quick.

MicroAire power-assisted liposuction is fast, precise, and results in less bruising and swelling of the treated areas. It works on small and large areas to extract fat and contour the body without the use of heat.

What is the recovery time with minimally-invasive liposuction procedures?

Recovery time varies depending on the size of the area you have treated and the type of liposuction you have done. Dr. Colon advises you on which technology works best for your goals. Overall, minimally-invasive liposuction procedures require considerably less downtime and recovery time than conventional invasive surgeries, which may take several months for all swelling to completely disappear.
