During your consultation with Dr. Zinsser, he will work to understand your aesthetic goals and recommend the procedure or treatment that can best achieve your desired outcome.
Your Liposuction Options
As with all of the procedures performed at Zinsser Plastic Surgery, the method or technique performed in your surgery will be fully customized for you, depending on your unique goals, the area you want to have treated and other factors. Dr. Zinsser offers the following liposuction options:
- Tumescent liposuction: With the tumescent liposuction technique, Dr. Zinsser uses a cannula to suction out targeted deposits of fat. During the process, tumescent fluid is injected into the fatty tissue, breaking it up and making it easier to remove.
- Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL): With this liposuction technique, an ultrasound probe is inserted into the fat after the tumescent solution has infused the area. Heat generated by the ultrasound helps to break down the fat between the fibers beneath the skin. Once the ultrasound process is complete, fat is removed through a cannula.
During your initial lipo consult, Dr. Zinsser will assess your physical condition, discuss your goals and recommend the liposuction technique best suited for you.
