Edmonton MicroLiposuction for precise body contouring.
Edmonton MicroLiposuction is here. This most delicate form of liposuction offers unparalleled precision in shaping some of the most delicate areas of the body.
The ideal body contouring procedure would be safe, effective, predictable and precise. Tumescent liposuction, BodyTite, NeckTite, SmartLipo and other variations on the theme, done under local or tumescent anaesthesia, fulfill most of these criteria. In some cases, however, more precision is needed to achieve truly amazing results. This is where MicroLiposuction comes in - this approach is able to achieve true sculpting with fine details in mind. Not just for models and movie stars, but ordinary people – students, teachers, farmers, mothers, and business people from all walks of life. It is that affordable!
What is MicroLiposuction?
MicroLiposuction is the new technique that uses the most delicate and precise cannulas which fine tune the liposuction procedure, resulting in ultimate results. The instruments are specifically designed to achieve finer contours and details that are difficult to achieve with traditional methods. Because of these tiny instruments, the procedure requires patience, focus and attention to minute details. The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia conditions.
What areas of the body can be treated with MicroLiposuction?
The amazing thing is that more body regions can be treated with MicroLiposuction than with traditional forms of liposuction. Because of the small instruments used, in addition to treating many traditional areas such as abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, arms, neck, chin, calves, and male chests, we can also treat more challenging areas such as ankles, elbows, small stubborn lower abdomen areas as well as even pubic regions. The key thing to remember is that the use of smaller instruments allows us to go places that we could not go before.
How does MicroLiposuction differ from other forms of liposuction?
The term liposuction means fat removal with the assistance of suction. This generic term can mean many things and it is important to understand the full meaning of the procedure when other adjectives are added. Tumescent liposuction refers to liposuction where a specialized form of local anaesthesia is used. BodyTite refers to a form of tumescent liposuction that incorporates additional radiofrequency energy to melt the fat and tighten the skin on the body. NeckTite is similar to BodyTite but the treatment involves the neck. SmartLipo is a form of tumescent liposuction that uses a laser to heat the fat. As we now know, BodyTite and NeckTite are the forms of liposuction that tighten the skin the most.
When it comes to MicroLiposuction, we use much smaller instruments compared to other forms of liposuction resulting in greater precision and accuracy. This accuracy allows us to minimize the chances of contour irregularities compared to the traditional methods of fat removal.
Am I a candidate for MicroLiposuction?
From the description above, one can see that almost any person in good or stable health with unwanted fat is a candidate for MicroLiposuction. If you have stubborn zones of fat and reasonable skin quality you could be a good candidate for this NEW and innovative procedure. It is important to note that any form of liposuction is not a substitute for healthy nutrition and exercise.
Many of us do our best eating healthy and exercising and yet the unwanted pounds continue to accumulate or are difficult to get rid of. In some cases, it takes more than good will, diet and exercise - we need technology and procedures to make fat vanish for good. Fine contouring with MicroLiposuction can make any fat removal that much more natural looking and precise. We know that after liposuction, the areas treated remain slimmer even with modest weight gain. Of course, we can not expect permanent results if we continue to gain weight and create more fat cells, but most liposuction patients have so much motivation to look good following the procedure that this is rarely the case.
Can MicroLiposuction be combined with other procedures?
The good new is that MicroLiposuction can be used on its own and can be combined with many fat removal, skin tightening as well as other liposuction techniques. In particular, MicroLiposuction can be combined with BodyTite, NeckTite as well as a pure form of tumescent liposuction. Furthermore, it can be used in combination with non-invasive fat removal technologies such as TiteFx, Fractora Firm and Plus. Non-surgical light-based laser and LED technologies promote fat metabolism and the remaining fat cells can be further eliminated with MicroLiposuction.
What are the side effects of MicroLiposuction?
The side effect profile of MicroLiposuction is similar or less than that seen in the traditional form of liposuction such as tumescent or BodyTite forms. Due to the fact that patients are treated under local anaesthesia, the risks of full general anaesthesia are eliminated. Depending on the size and location of the MicroLiposuction area, patients can resume activities within hours or days after the procedure. Depending on the individual patient characteristics and the extent of the MicroLiposuction procedure performed, patients can experience some skin and tissue irregularities, changes in colour, contour or sensation, pain as well as small scars at the MicroLiposuction cannula entry points. Generally speaking, these side effects are manageable with time although in some circumstances additional treatments may be required.
MicroLiposuction technique represents a significant advancement in the treatment of unwanted fat. In trained hands, its small instruments, precise incision placements, appreciation for beautiful contours and possible combination with other modalities can create truly unique results previously unattainable with only conventional treatments.
