Liposuction Overview

Liposuction is a worthwhile and effective procedure for any area where the body tends to store excess fat. These areas include the abdomen, back, bum, hips, thighs, arms, neck and calves. Most liposuction procedures can generally be carried out on an outpatient system. The processes for liposuction surgeries are very similar, irrespective of the area of the body that is in focus and involved initially being given a local or general anesthetic or epidural.

Regardless of the surgical technique chosen by you and Dr. Padovan you will be supplied with fluids through an IV drip during the surgery. Once your comfort and wellbeing has been established, Dr. Padovan will then insert a thin hollow tube, referred to as a cannula, into the target body part. This tube is connected to a specialised vacuum that removes the fat cell from your body as the tube makes its way through the area. Dr. Padovan is very particular to make cuts as small and few as possible in order to reduce healing time and the impact of scarring to your body.

Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent Liposuction is a particularly safe method of liposuction surgery performed by Dr. Geoff Padovan. This method involves inserted a special fluid, a blend of anesthetic and saline solution, into the target area which then swells the fat pockets and makes it much more accessible to the cannula, giving it greater ability to remove fat cells.

Tumescent Liposuction is a perfect option for areas of the body that require a high degree of precision, such as removing fat from the face and calves. In lots of cases this method is also preferred by patients when considering liposuction on larger areas.

If you and Dr. Padovan agree that tumescent liposuction is the way to go then he will inject the solution into the target area prior to make any incisions. This liquid may reduce bruising as a result of the surgery and can avoid the need for further anesthetic.
