This cosmetic surgery patient desired body contouring by liposuction. She discussed treatment of her flanks, sides and abdomen with Dr. Medalie at his Beachwood office. Surgery was performed and 4 liters of fatty tissue was removed from her flanks, sides and abdomen in an outpatient surgery at the Brainard Surgery Center. Her post-operative results were excellent and she was very happy with her new contour after her body contouring procedure.

The liposuction procedure includes the following steps:
Step 1 – Anesthesia
Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include local anesthesia, intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
Step 2 – The Incision
Liposuction is performed through small, inconspicuous incisions.
First, diluted local anesthesia is infused to reduce bleeding and trauma. Then a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through the incisions to loosen excess fat using a controlled back and forth motion. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.

Your improved body contour will be apparent once the swelling and fluid retention commonly experienced following liposuction subside. Get more information about liposuction results.
