Liposuction currently ranks as the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the US. Innovations in liposuction techniques have made the procedure less invasive, encouraging many more people to seek this surgery. At the same time, a powerful non-surgical fat reduction procedure called CoolSculpting serves as an effective alternative to liposuction.
Dr. Gary Motykie is a leading cosmetic surgeon providing a range of liposuction techniques as well as non-invasive CoolSculpting procedure to help patients get rid of unwanted fat pockets. Dr. Motykie provides these procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
The original liposuction plastic surgery technique was developed more than three decades ago. But in recent years, a range of less invasive variants of liposuction have gained popularity due to the introduction of technologies such as lasers and ultrasound in surgical procedures.
Tumescent liposuction has emerged as one of the most widely used techniques to perform targeted fat reduction. The procedure is designed to be less invasive and can be performed only using local anesthesia. The cosmetic surgeon will inject liberal volumes of lidocaine and epinephrine into the fatty tissues, which will numb the local area and minimize the risk of bleeding and bruising. Thereafter, the surgeon can easily remove the unwanted fat tissue.
This technique involves the use of ultrasound energy to liquefy stubborn fat tissue before it is suctioned out surgically. After the delivery of tumescent fluid into the targeted area, the surgeon will use a special ultrasound cannula to disintegrate the fat cells. This enables their removal in a less aggressive manner to restore a smoother and more even body contour.
A number of variants in this technique, such as Smart Lipo, Slim Lipo and Cool Lipo, are used to achieve fat reduction in specific area of the body in a less invasive manner. The technique involves the use of thermal energy that is generated through a specialized laser emitting cannula, which will melt the targeted fat tissue. This will enable the surgeon to remove the fat cells more easily and without causing damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.
For individuals who want to achieve fat reduction without surgery, Dr. Motykie provides a proven and innovative non-invasive procedure called CoolSculpting. This FDA cleared procedure was developed by Harvard scientists, and it involves a revolutionary cooling process to freeze off the unwanted fat cells. Once the fat cells are frozen, they will gradually break down and get removed from the body in a natural metabolic process.
Over a period of few months, the patient will gain enhanced body contours in the treated areas. Results with CoolSculpting appear more natural and can be sustained for a long period of time with a regular diet and exercise regimen. CoolSculpting does not involve any significant discomfort for the patient and it completely avoids the use of any needles, cuts, or incisions. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive this procedure from Dr. Motykie.
