At Crispin Plastic Surgery, you have choices for the type of Atlanta liposuction that will best achieve your cosmetic goals. Each Atlanta liposuction type offered by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Crispin offers distinct advantages. The liposuction technique best suited to your unique wishes will be determined during your initial Atlanta cosmetic surgery consultation.
With the use of specialized lasers, such as SlimLipo, SmartLipo, etc., Dr. Crispin can melt targeted deposits of fat for easier and safer removal. The advantages of laser-assisted liposuction include:
- Less bruising
- Reduced risk for contour irregularities
- Potential for skin tightening
This technique can provide beautiful results while reducing common liposuction risks and is often the first choice of our patients.
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) uses ultrasound to liquefy fat prior to removal. UAL is an incredibly effective form of liposuction, but may not be suitable for all parts of the body. If your problem areas can be treated with UAL, you can enjoy benefits including:
- More complete removal of fat from the abdomen, chest and hips
- Minimal blood loss
- Minimal damage to surrounding tissue
- Less chance of risks such as contour irregularities
This procedure is also effective at removing fat from areas that have previously been treated with other forms of liposuction.
Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) uses a vibrating cannula to break up stubborn deposits of fat for easier removal. Prior to the insertion of the cannula, a medical solution is injected into the treatment areas to help further break up fat deposits.
The benefits of PAL include:
- Less need for force resulting in reduced bleeding and impact to surrounding tissue
- Lower instances of bruising
- Reduced recovery period
- Faster than traditional liposuction
PAL is extremely effective at removing large deposits of fat from nearly every area of your body, including those that have traditionally been considered difficult to sculpt.
Each of these techniques offers specific benefits, but not all are appropriate for every patient. During your initial Marietta body contouring consultation, Dr. Crispin will carefully examine your areas of concern and determine the cosmetic technique yielding the most rejuvenating and natural-looking result.
