Posted on January 10, 2019 by Dr. Adrian Lee
Dr. Adrian Lee is one of the most sought after Vancouver liposuction specialists. He encourages potential patients to read the information below and visit the liposuction gallery to learn more about how this procedure has helped create a new body profile for Vancouver liposuction patients.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat from the body through a suction technique. Also known as lipo, the procedure is typically performed on trouble areas that do not seem to respond to diet and regular exercise. During the procedure, the fat is broken up and suctioned out in order to change the body’s contours.
Dr. Adrian Lee performs liposuction in Vancouver with the Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction (UAL) technique. This technique allows for safer removal of significant amounts of fat than with standard liposuction. The ultrasound helps liquefy the fat leading to less movement of the wand under the skin. To the patient this means less bruising and swelling and less recovery time.
This is considered a permanent change in a patient’s figure and is especially helpful for areas that will not respond to diet and exercise.
What is Involved?
- The procedure is done as a day surgery in our Surgical Centre. A general anesthetic is used for larger areas, a local may be considered for a very small area.
- A small wand is inserted through very short incisions placed in inconspicuous areas. A tumescent solution is inserted, following with the use of the sound wave to liquefy the fat. The fat is then removed by suction attached to the wand.
- Pain is managed with oral medication.
- You will go home wearing a compression garment that you will be asked to wear for a few days to a couple of weeks.
- You may shower in 24- 48 hours.
- All sutures are absorbable.
- Bruising and swelling subsides in 7 – 10 days, slight swelling may last a few weeks or months.
- The final result takes shape over 2 – 3 months.
