In Houston, liposuction is the most commonly requested and performed body contouring procedure just like it is across the U.S., due to its effectiveness and versatility. Because liposuction can be used to treat so many body areas, both tumescent and ultrasonic liposuction are used to get the best results for any area.
Tumescent vs. Ultrasonic Liposuction
- Tumescent liposuction involves the injection of a surgical solution along with a local anesthetic to help loosen fat deposits to allow for more thorough removal.
- Ultrasonic liposuction uses ultrasound waves to emulsify fat deposits for removal. This offers several advantages including less damage to surrounding tissues allowing for shorter recovery. There are also lower risks associated with ultrasonic liposuction.
Often, these liposuction procedure options are combined to give the best possible result. Triple board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann has over three decades of experience and the knowledge of both techniques needed to provide the safest and most effective treatment for your particular body contouring goals.
