Normal To Be Getting Liposuction Under Local Anesthesia with Fat Transfer?

Hi, Thank you for your question.  I am a board certified Plastic Surgeon and I do about 98% of my lipo cases under local.  this includes our fat transfer to buttocks or breasts.  However, we use the Body Jet in our practice instead of tumescent lipo.  We get less bleeding and the fat is removed gentler than with traditional lipo.  In addition, the Body Jet has a Lipo Collector that separates the fat from the fluid as we do the lipo and we are ready to transfer the fat back as soon as we are done with the lipo.

Non Plastic Surgeons Doing Liposuction = Danger

My recommendation is simple: Life is short, It is never worth it to take the chance by going to a doctor that is not even a surgeon much less a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. This can be dangerous and is never recommended. To find the #BestPlasticSurgeon in your area for liposuction, see the below link. Dr. Nichter
