What is Liposuction?Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is a widely-popular and minimally-invasive procedure designed to target and permanently remove problem fat from the body. The process involves the breakdown of fat cells – which are then gently removed from the body using a specialized suction method. Treatments offer immediate results for a smoother and more firm silhouette.
What is Awake Tumescent Liposuction?Tumescent liposuction, also known as awake lipo is a new, advanced way to achieve a more desirable body shape. It is performed without the need for general anesthesia which allows for less complications, soreness, bruising, or scarring. Unlike traditional liposuction, the patient is awake during the process, and are able to communicate with Dr. Yong during treatment. This enables better control and precision for improved results.During treatment, local anesthesia is administered to ensure optimal patient comfort. A specialized tumescent solution is then added to the fatty layers of skin tissue. This causes the fat tissue to swell and become tight, or “tumesced.” This makes it easier for Dr. Young to remove the fat using an extremely thin tube inserted beneath the skin. Using gentle and slow motions, the fat deposits are broken down and then quickly removed from the body. The area is then sculpted and smoothed for outstanding results.
