What is Liposuction?
Liposuction breaks up and removes fat from almost any area of the body where fat can accumulate. It can remove significant amounts of fat that have resisted your healthy lifestyle efforts. Liposuction is intended for use as a body sculpting tool, and in the hands of an experienced surgeon like Dr. Scott Holley, it can enhance your figure and let you enjoy the shape you have worked to achieve.
How Does Liposuction Work?
Dr. Holley uses tumescent liposuction, injecting a sterile combination of saline and local anesthetic into the layer of fat under the skin. This method minimizes any bleeding during the procedure. He will then make several small incisions to insert the cannula. He will move this long, thin tool around to break up the fat and remove it from the body.
Liposuction can be performed on many parts of the body. Some of the most popular locations include:
- Love handles
Dr. Holley uses liposuction alone or for body sculpting during procedures such as tummy tucks. For a Brazilian butt lift, he will use liposuction to harvest fat from another part of the body and inject it into the buttocks. Arm, thigh, and neck lifts may also use liposuction to remove excess fat before tightening the skin.
