Liposuction Surgery

Remove Stubborn Body Fat

When you have areas of fat that stick around despite diet and exercise, liposuction can permanently eliminate the fat and give you the sleek body shape you desire.

Liposuction & Tummy Tuck

Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that slims and contours your body by removing unwanted fat. During liposuction, Dr. Obianwu uses a small incision to insert a narrow tube or cannula into the area of fat you want removed. He gently and precisely moves the cannula around to break up the fat, then uses suction to eliminate the fat.

A tummy tuck, also called an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of your abdomen. Some patients choose to get a tummy tuck because they have excess skin after losing weight, or they have a problem pocket of fat that won’t go away even when they diet and exercise. It’s also possible to end up with unattractive tummy fat due to aging, genetics, and after a pregnancy.

How Liposuction Works

Though liposuction is extremely effective for contouring your body, it’s not meant to be a weight loss procedure. To be a good candidate for liposuction, you should be near your healthy body weight already, even though you have problem areas of fat that won’t go away. Similarly, when you decide to get a tummy tuck, it’s important to be within 10-15 pounds of your healthy weight. A tummy tuck can produce exceptional results, but you can quickly reverse those results by gaining or losing weight after your surgery.

Tumescent liposuction refers to the type of anesthesia used during your procedure. The tumescent anesthesia technique consists of injecting the targeted area with a solution that contains a local anesthetic called lidocaine and epinephrine, which constricts blood vessels.

Effective and long-lasting local anesthesia

Tumescent anesthesia does such an exceptional job of eliminating pain during your liposuction procedure that you won’t need other sedatives. Patients who receive tumescent anesthesia also have little to no postoperative discomfort. The treated areas remain partially anesthetized for up to 18 hours after the procedure.

Minimal blood loss

Epinephrine stops bleeding by immediately constricting blood vessels. This is a significant benefit because excessive blood loss is a problem when liposuction is performed under general anesthesia.

Better liposuction results

Tumescent anesthesia makes it easier to remove the fat cells, even in areas that are traditionally more difficult to suction, such as your upper abdomen and inner thighs. It also reduces the risk of postoperative skin irregula
