Awake Liposculpture


Performing Liposuction with an awake patient has several distinct advantages.

1. Positioning - visualizing the desired contour in it's normal anatomic position allows for more accurate sculpting.

2. Cannulas - using micro cannulas allows for more precise fatty tissue removal with a smoother contour and final result.

3. Tumescent - injection of a numbing medicine and vasoconstricting agent allows for no bleeding and minimal bruising.

4. Incisions - the tiny incisions are left open to drain which minimizes bruising and eliminates the risk of infection.
