Liposuction in Miami Florida
Liposuction is one of the most common surgical procedures. It is a procedure that enables Florida plastic surgeon, Dr. Sampson to remove excess, fatty tissue from areas of the body. In this way the area of excess tissue can be appropriately contoured and improved. While it is not a means of weight loss, it is a very effective technique for reshaping the neck, torso and extremities.
Over the years the original concept of liposuction has had many additions and variations. However, the basic techniques, called Tumescent liposuction involves the addition of saline (salt water) fluid to the soft tissue or fatty area of the patient under general or local anesthesia, Dr. Sampson will then extract the fluid and fatty tissue. In that way, the fatty tissue of the body is reduced.
The techniques can be used to reduce the size of the arms, breasts, abdomen, flanks and thighs. It is a very efficient, alternative to the pain of an exercise routine, especially to take away the excess tissue of the abdomen and hips.
Liposuction removed fatty tissue from underneath the skin. So it is an effective and efficient technique to reduce fatty deposits that accumulate on or around the torso or in the extremities.
The results are a leaner and more attractive body. Dr. Sampson encourages his patients to continue to eat properly and continue a gentle exercise regimen so the effects and results of the surgery will last a very long time.
Complications and adverse results after liposuction are fortunately minimal in Dr. Sampson’s experienced hands. Like all surgical procedures, there are risks of bleeding and infection. These are mostly not seen after liposuction. It is possible to have seromas (fluid under the skin) or loose skin after the procedure.
Dr. Sampson encourages a detailed pre-surgical evaluation to discuss the best technique for each patient. Usually patients wear a compressive garment after surgery that reduces the surgical risks significantly.
