There are a variety of different techniques that are used for liposuction. Dr. Tahernia will discuss with you which technique is best to meet your cosmetic aesthetic goals. Each technique has its advantages and disadvantages over each other, but Dr. Tahernia will ensure that you can make an informed decision. Some liposuction techniques include:
Tumescent Liposuction – This liposuction technique uses a dilute local anesthetic solution that is composed of lidocaine and epinephrine which can treat the fat regions before the liposuction is performed. As the tumescent solution acts as an anesthetic, there is no need for general anesthesia making this procedure safer over traditional liposuction. This procedure also minimizes the amount of blood loss as the epinephrine in the solution constricts blood vessels temporarily.
Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) – PAL uses a vibrating cannula tio that can gently break up fat and suction it away in one step making it a more efficient liposuction technique. The fact that the cannula is vibrating also allows for it to easily move through fatty layers using a minimal amount of force. Dr. Tahernia can use the more efficient method giving him more precision and control, while allowing him to focus on sculpting a beautiful figure.
Laser-Assisted Liposuction – Using a small laser, Dr. Tahernia is able to melt away unwanted fat. Often times, this technique is performed in conjunction with tumescent liposuction for optimal results. The small laser allows for a higher accuracy and also allows for a Dr. Tahernia to treat hard to reach places.
