What Is Liposuction Banner

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat from specific areas of the body. It is performed by making small incisions in the skin and inserting a thin tube called a cannula that is attached 
to a vacuum device. The dislodged fat is suctioned out of the body through the tube. Liposuction is usually an outpatient procedure 
and takes 1-2 hours, depending on the number of areas being treated. Local anesthesia is used to keep the patient comfortable during the entire process.

Liposuction can target many body areas:

VASER® Technique

Dr. Bailey uses a VASER® device to perform liposuction procedures more safely and effectively. This technology relies on ultrasound energy to break apart and liquefy fat before it is removed from the body. VASER® emits ultrasonic waves through a small stainless steel probe inserted through tiny incisions in the skin. This energy targets and selectively breaks apart fat cells while preserving blood vessels and connective tissue. VASER® allows Dr. Bailey to remove fat with more precision and less bleeding and bruising compared to traditional liposuction methods.

Consultation & Preparation for Liposuction

Before the surgery, patients schedule consultations with Dr. Bailey to determine if they are eligible for liposuction. He evaluates their skin elasticity, fatty tissue distribution, 
and medical history. The surgeon also discusses the details of the procedure, including the methods and extent of fat removal, risks and side effects, and recovery timeline. Then, the preparation process begins:

Liposuction Procedure

Anesthesia
General or local anesthesia can be used depending on the area. A tumescent solution is injected to numb the treatment areas. A combination of lidocaine, epinephrine, and saline is injected into the fat beneath the skin. This helps to minimize discomfort and reduces blood loss and swelling during the surgery.
Small incisions (less than 0.2 inches) are made in strategic locations. These allow the VASER® probe to be inserted beneath the skin to melt fat cells.
The VASER® device emits ultrasound energy to target and selectively break apart fat cell walls. This procedure liquefies the tissue so it can be gently suctioned out. The injected solution (lidocaine, epinephrine, and saline) helps to dislodge the fat in the treatment area. The freed fat is carefully removed through the cannula, preventing damage to the surrounding structures.
Finally, the incisions are cleaned and carefully closed either with medical glue, dissolvable stitches, or regular sutures, depending on the surgeon’s preference. This completes the VASER® liposuction procedure.

Recovery After Liposuction Banner

Recovery After Liposuction

Recovery from liposuction is typically experience discomfort. Patients usually experience bruising, swelling, and soreness around the treated areas for a few weeks. A compression garment is worn during this time to help reduce symptoms and promote healing. Most patients can return to non-strenuous work within a few days, but more physically demanding activities should be avoided for 2-4 weeks. Complete healing takes about 6 months. During recovery, patients are advised to walk daily to help prevent blood clots. They must also attend follow-up appointments so that Dr. Bailey can monitor their progress.

Botox & Fillers
I’ve came to Dr. Bailey for years now and have always had the highest quality experience!!! He always goes above and beyond to make sure the procedure for Botox and Filler are pain free. In my 20’s I struggled with extremely bad migraines, at least 3 per month. Once I started Botox with Dr.Bailey they were completely alleviated and of course the cosmetic results were top notch as well. The entire office staff has always made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I truly feel like they care about me and I’m not “just another patient”. I am always 💯 pleased with my results. Dr. Collin Bailey is the BEST!! His unmatchable expertise keeps me coming back!!!!

Breast Lift & Implants
“I was intimidated when I first came in but I was greeted at the door and Dr. Bailey’s staff was so nice and made me feel so welcomed. When I was having my consultation I felt insecure about myself but Dr. Bailey and his staff made me feel at ease. They were willing to tell me all my options and explain the procedure thoroughly. I am so happy I moved forward with a breast lift and my implants are a perfect size as well. I am feeling and looking better than ever! I have more confidence and overall feel better about myself. I couldn’t recommend this facility more! I keep telling my friends to come in for consultation so they can have a great experience like I did.”
