Liposuction is a surgical procedure that helps tone and contour your body. Dr. Hasan removes stubborn pockets of fat from areas of concern that persist despite having a healthy diet, regular exercise, and positive lifestyle habits.
At BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery, Dr. Hasan specializes in tumescent, or wide-awake liposuction. This type of liposuction doesn’t require general anesthesia and requires less downtime.
During tumescent liposuction, you’re placed under local anesthesia. Then, Dr. Hasan makes small incisions in the predetermined treatment areas. He places small cannulas or microcannulas (tiny tubes) into these incisions. He carefully loosens the stubborn fat and suctions it out via these tubes.
Microcannulas offer a more gentle and delicate approach than the cannulas used in traditional liposuction, which uses larger cannulas. It also gives your surgeon greater precision and control with fat removal.
Liposuction helps you achieve the physique you desire, but you can benefit from this procedure in many ways, including being more confident in your body and having your clothes fit better.
Commonly treated areas with liposuction include:
Dr. Hasan sometimes includes wide-awake liposuction as part of a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) to help you get enviable curves.
The recovery process takes 24-48 hours, but you can return to your normal routine within two weeks. You’ll likely have some discomfort, pain, swelling, and bruising in the areas where you received liposuction. However, this is a completely normal part of the recovery process.
Dr. Hasan may give you special compression garments to reduce any swelling following liposuction at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery.
If you’d like to extend your liposuction results, it’s important to maintain healthy lifestyle habits and avoid significant weight gain.
Tumescent liposuction involves very small incisions and relatively short downtime, making it a popular aesthetic procedure for many patients. However, Dr. Hasan discusses the procedure in detail and its limitations during your consultation at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery.
If you’re getting close or at your goal weight, you may be a candidate for liposuction. You should also be in good overall health before undergoing any type of aesthetic surgery, including liposuction.
