Thank you for your time. Typically performed on an outpatient basis, Liposculpturing of the mons pubis can last approximately thirty minutes, depending in the amount of fat removed and the technique performed. The most common techniques include tumescent and Vaser assisted Liposculpturing.
Tumescent Liposculpturing Using a mixture of local anesthetics and adrenaline, a special solution called tumescent fluid is created. This fluid is inserted into the treated area through tiny access points. It helps numb the treated area controls bleeding and reacts with your fat making it easier to remove. The fat is then suctioned out through a blunt tubular instrument called a cannula.
Vaser Assisted Liposculpturing is the added use of a vaser assisted unit, with Tumescent Liposculpturing, to help pull and tighten the skin by 53%.
Many surgery centers do not carry the Vaser Assisted Unit as it is a very specialized equipment. I recommend asking your physician if this unit is available for your surgery and if the physician is familiar with the use.
