Combining Tumescent and Ultrasonic LiposuctionJuly 24, 2014
Generally speaking, all liposuction procedures are similar. An incision is made through which a thin tube called a cannula is inserted and fat is removed from the area. However, advances in liposuction techniques have made the procedure safer, faster, and more effective than ever.
Our Washington DC plastic surgeons have found that combining tumescent and ultrasonic liposuction is one of the most effective ways to deliver the exceptional outcome you desire. Alone, these techniques can do wonders, but combined, they are capable of producing stunning results.
Dr. Bruno and Dr. Brown use tumescent solution, which is comprised of local anesthetic and medications that control bleeding, reduce postoperative bruising, and eliminate pain. Once the solution has been injected, our plastic surgeons will use ultrasonic liposuction to remove stubborn fat deposits.
Ultrasonic liposuction uses ultrasound waves to emulsify fat prior to removal. This allows for a more complete removal of fatty deposits and may also help skin better conform to your new contours. During your initial liposuction consultation, Dr. Bruno and Dr. Brown would be happy to answer any questions you may have and discuss the benefits of our technique with you in more detail.
