When to consider liposuction
At your consultation, you will be assessed to determine if you’re healthy enough to have surgery. You may want to consider liposuction when:
Your skin elasticity is good, but you don’t have a lot of excess skin (liposuction removes fat, but not skin)
You have areas of fat deposits that are out of proportion with the rest of your body and that don’t change with a healthy diet and exercise
You want more definition in different areas of your body
Dr. LaGrasso will listen to your concerns and goals to determine if liposuction is the best procedure to meet your needs.
How is liposuction with fat transfer performed?
Dr. LaGrasso has four different techniques for liposuction at his Miami, FL office:
Ultrasound-assisted (UAL): The ultrasound-assisted or ultrasonic technique is used on denser areas of fat, such as the stomach or thighs. Ultrasound waves loosen and melt the fat into a liquid. A cannula, or thin tube, is used to extract this solution.
Vaser® Lipo: This uses an ultrasonic cannula with many grooves, which will evenly disperse energy while continuously removing fat. When used correctly, it can target fat cells with more precision.
Tumescent Super-Wet: This is a suction-assisted technique that uses a power motor and solution to remove stubborn fat from various parts of the body. Dr. LaGrasso injects the solution into different problem areas. He then inserts the cannula attached to the motor to remove fat cells at a controlled speed.
Laser-assisted: Laser-assisted liposuction uses laser technology on specific areas of fat to burst energy that will loosen the fat faster for removal.
Regardless of what type of liposuction you have, you will be under general anesthesia. Each body part takes about 30 minutes, so the amount of time you’re in surgery depends on the target areas you’re treating. Bruising and swelling, typically, subside in about a week, but most patients won’t see their final results for a few months.
What liposuction with fat transfer can do for your body
Liposuction helps improve cellulite appearance; however, there is no real guarantee that it will smooth it out or eliminate the dimpled look. It can be performed alone or with another procedure that can contour the overlying skin. This process of fat reduction creates a more ideal shape and body contouring for both men and women.
How much does liposuction with fat transfer cost?
The cost of liposuction in Miami, FL will depend on the type used and the number of areas you are treating. The average cost ranges from $5,000 $10,000. At your consultation, we can review all financial obligations with you before you commit to surgery.
