AirSculpt® vs. Traditional Liposuction

Liposuction Risks: Evaluating Its Effectiveness and Sacramento Alternatives

Liposuction removes fat from the body using a unique instrument with vacuum/suction-like capabilities called a cannula. 

The procedure is informally called lipo and is tailored to those that want to contour the shape of their body by extracting fat from specific areas.

The most common areas people use liposuction on to remove this 'fluff' include our thighs, hips, buttocks, abs, and back. Some men and women opt to reduce the size of their arms as well. 

What's important to note is that it is challenging to get rid of fat in these specific areas through natural, traditional methods alone. Sometimes a hardworking year filled with squats and bicep curls won't do the trick.

That said, most of these patients end up going to the doctor's office to get the fast, immediate results that they're expecting. 

Liposuction Risks and Procedure Recovery 

First things first, liposuction is categorized as an invasive cosmetic procedure. Therefore, if undergoing liposuction, you will be put under general anesthesia, and you will feel pain afterward.

Your recovery time depends on what body parts you choose to treat, yet the minimum time you'll have to wait to return to your daily routine is around two weeks. 

Common side effects are pain, swelling, bruising, or numbness.

Other severe, but potential risks from traditional liposuction procedures are:

  • Puncture wounds
  • Complications with anesthesia
  • Burns
  • Nerve damage
  • Death
  • Blood clotting
  • Fat embolisms
  • Infection

How Do I Remove Fat Without Those Risks?

The answer to this question is a lot simpler than you'd imagine with Elite Body Sculpture's patented AirSculpt® technology. 

AirSculpt® body contouring in Atlanta gives better results than liposuction without the risks. It's a minimally invasive procedure that doesn't use a scalpel, needle, or general anesthesia. It also doesn't produce heavy scarring or bruising!

An AirSculpt® Procedure Involves These Steps

The Elite Body Sculpture surgeon numbs the area to be treated with an AirPen, a patented device that uses pressurized air to administer medication, omitting needles.

Afterward, to replace the use of a scalpel, a symmetrical two millimeter opening with a biopsy punch is formed. Laser technology is then used to tighten the skin and prepare the fat. 

Once the fat is ready for extraction, the specially designed AirSculpt® cannula plucks that fat from the body without harming any surrounding tissues. The cannula is then taken out of the body, and the opening is left naturally to heal, leaving a freckle-sized mark at the end.

It should now be pretty easy to understand why Elite Body Sculpture is a better alternative for fat removal than cosmetic offices in Sacramento performing liposuction.
