The only discomfort that you may experience during the procedure is when a thin needle is used for anesthesia administration. It is inserted on the subcutaneous or fatty layer of the skin and feels just like a small injection you may receive at the dentist’s office or during immunization. The anesthesia makes the area totally numb in less than a minute. It also helps slightly separate the fat layer from the muscle layer. If you are nervous, we can give you an oral sedative to help you relax.
Once the anesthesia has fully taken effect on the target areas, Dr. Tirgari will make small incisions and insert the laser liposuction device to melt the fat cells. This is done by inserting and pulling the liposuction device until all fatty areas are broken up. Once this step is done, a small cannula is used to suction the fat out of the body. The remaining fat will then be processed through the liver after liposuction, for a permanent reduction of the presence of fat cells in the treatment area.
At Avalon Lipo & Aesthetics, we combine the laser liposuction device, known as Smart Lipo surgery, with the tumescent technique, allowing us to treat our patients safely and with minimal discomfort or prolonged recovery, all while delivering excellent body slimming and skin tightening results. During your consultation, we’ll be sure to walk you through every aspect of your upcoming procedure, while also giving you a clear idea of what you can expect from your recovery period and final results.
