Despite regular exercise routines and healthy diets, inherited genetic traits can negatively affect your ability to attain the desired shape for your body. Fortunately, liposuction is designed to remove stubborn fat buildup throughout different areas of your body. Following the liposuction procedure with board-certified plastic surgeon Louis Bucky, MD, you can often expect a slimmer, more defined figure that looks completely natural. He also performs over 1,000 breast, body and reconstructive surgeries each year. Dr. Bucky provides exceptional patient recovery care.
Your Individual Goals
Your goals will be discussed realistically with Dr. Bucky during an initial consultation. Liposuction is often performed in conjunction with other surgeries. Together you will decide which procedures Dr. Bucky will perform in order to achieve your desired results. You will set a date for surgery and be given instructions about how to prepare.
Liposuction Procedures Details
At Dr. Bucky’s practice, liposuction is used to remove fat from the legs and torso. Dr. Bucky begins by inserting a cannula (a slim, hollow tube) into small incisions near the area(s) to be recontoured. He then moves the cannula through different tissue layers to extract excess fat. Following the removal of fat and tissue, Dr. Bucky will stitch the incision closed.
Dr. Bucky utilizes Standard Tumescent Technique and injects fluid into your body, roughly the same amount as the fat to be removed.
Dr. Bucky works with a Board Certified operating team. Your liposculpture procedure will have a rapid recovery rate with Dr. Bucky’s extensive post-operative care program. You will have access to a vitamin regimen, a primary nurse, and lymphatic massage.
In addition to standard tumescent liposuction, Dr. Bucky also offers SAFELipo® – a comprehensive body contouring procedure designed to combine the benefits of liposuction, fat grafting, and fat shifting. Named for its three-step process of Separation, Aspiration, and Fat Equalization, this innovative technique can be used to remove significant amounts of fat while helping to reshape your body for a smoother, more contoured appearance.
During the SAFELipo® procedure, Dr. Bucky will loosen and separate stubborn fat cells in targeted areas of your body. These fat cells will then be removed through a gentle suction process designed to protect surrounding tissues from sustaining any damage. Once the targeted fat has been removed, the remaining thin layer of fat will be smoothed out and contoured to achieve the most symmetric and aesthetically-pleasing shape possible. Throughout the entire process no heat is generated, thereby helping to eliminate any damaging effects associated with other forms of liposuction and body contouring procedures that employ thermal energy.
Recovery and healing from SAFELipo® will vary per individual, but you can generally expect some minor bruising and swelling to occur following your treatment. Ultimately, this revolutionary procedure can help you achieve a more contoured figure with beautiful, natural-looking results.
