Liposuction is a widely popular and successful method of surgically removing stubborn fat from areas that resist all efforts at diet and targeted exercise. Among the most popular methods is tumescent liposuction, which uses only local anesthesia. The procedure gets its name from the tumescent fluid that surrounds the area of fat to be removed. This fluid causes the fat pockets to swell, making it easier for Dr. Dayan to target it for removal. Avance Plastic Surgery Institute in Reno/Tahoe is a recognized center of excellence for liposuction procedures, thanks to Dr. Dayan.
Dr. Erez Dayan is a recognized expert in various advanced forms and techniques of liposuction, including using the procedure to treat troublesome medical conditions, as well as advanced body contouring. Tumescent liposuction is often chosen because virtually any portion of the body can be targeted with a quick recovery. This includes:
Specific areas of concern can be discussed, along with the specifics of your recommended body contouring treatment, in a consultation with Dr. Dayan in his Reno/Tahoe, NV, office.
Lake Tahoe Lipo Under Local Anesthesia
Patients who receive lipo under local anesthesia from Dr. Dayan are made comfortable in a position that allows him access to the area(s) being targeted. An anesthetic is injected into the local area containing the excess fat along with a tumescent fluid. Time is allowed for the fluid to fill the fatty layer, causing it to swell and become firm. This provides more stability and resulting control for Dr. Dayan as he removes the unwanted fatty tissue.
As an accompanying benefit, the fluid solution causes blood vessels in the area to temporarily shrink, reducing blood loss and bruising from the procedure. Dr. Dayan makes small incisions in the skin through which he inserts a cannula. He uses this device to target and remove the unwanted fat once and for all.
Patients will typically be required to wear a compression garment for a while to help keep swelling to a minimum. Postoperative pain is normally handled with OTC pain relievers. Patients are also encouraged to walk soon after the procedure to help with healing. Normal activities and exercise can be resumed about seven to ten days later, depending on how large an area was addressed with liposuction. Dr. Dayan will give you specific instructions to follow.
Results can be seen immediately, with final results in about two to three months. To schedule a tumescent liposuction consultation with Dr. Dayan, contact Avance Plastic Surgery Institute in Reno/Tahoe, NV today.
