Liposuction is a surgical technique to remove excess fat located between the skin and muscle. Localized accumulations of fat, which are often hereditary and resistant to diet and exercise, can now be permanently removed via this procedure.
At Acadia Women’s Health we use Tumescent anesthesia, a form of local anesthesia, to perform breast augmentations, liposuction and mini tummy tucks minimizing your recovery and making the procedure more affordable. We believe performing liposuction in this manner is the safest way to remove large amounts of fat with minimal blood loss. We believe the tumescent technique is less painful, lessens the post operative recovery time and produces optimal cosmetic results.
Liposuction involves inserting a small stainless steel tube through tiny skin incisions and connecting it to a suction pump. The pump assists the doctor in removing the fat by creating tiny tunnels through the fatty layers. After surgery, these tiny tunnels collapse resulting in an improved body contour.
