Liposuction Surgery Procedures in Wilmington, DE

Here are some of the more prevalent options available to Wilmington, DE liposuction patients. Juve Surgical uses the tumescent liposuction method because of its quick recovery and over all safety.

Tumescent liposuction - With tumescent liposuction, local anesthesia is used on the subcutaneous fat, so general anesthesia is not needed. Even though the patient is not fully unconscious, he or she experiences no pain because of the local anesthesia, and because general anesthesia is not used, this procedure is considered less risky. This is the preferred technique of Juve Surgical.

Dry liposuction - Rarely used today. Unlike other liposuction techniques, this technique uses no fluid injection into the tissue before liposuction takes place.

Wet liposuction - A fluid that numbs the area and constricts blood vessels is injected into the surgical site before liposuction takes place. This also helps loosen fat cells.

Superwet liposuction - Like wet liposuction, but more fluid is used; generally for large-volume liposuction treatments.

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction - Vibrations are transmitted within the body, breaking up fat cells and making them easier to remove.

Laser liposuction - The laser used in this treatment also helps firm the skin, but this is generally used for localized fat deposits.

Liposuction Before and After

Before the surgery, your doctor may ask you to adjust your medication schedule or start taking some new medicine, stop smoking, stop taking aspirin or other medicines that promote bleeding, and get laboratory analysis done.

Once the surgery is over, doctors often recommend that patients wear elastic bandages or clothes that compress the areas of your body where you’ve been treated. There may be drains to remove fluid buildup. Depending on how much fat was removed, it may be recommended that you undergo another procedure to improve the condition of the skin.

Risks will be discussed with your doctor before treatment, but they can include allergic reactions, infection, skin or tissue damage, dead skin (rarely), burning from the liposuction instruments, and imbalance or toxicity relating to the fluid injected into the body.

Recovery time can vary, depending on the area, volume, and other circumstances surrounding the procedure you have done. Consult with your surgeon for details and expectations about your personal recovery.

The results of liposuction should be long-lasting for patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle, including diet and exercise.
