What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure wherein the unwanted fat tissues are suctioned out of your body via small tubes. Accents Plastic Surgery provides the upgraded Vaser liposuction to extract the unwanted fat tissues with greater efficiency. Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound technology to break the fat cells, loosen them from your body, and extract them smoothly. It’s a controlled and gentle procedure that removes the unwanted fat cells without extended recovery periods or harsh side effects.
Vaser liposuction is similar to traditional liposuction — both involve suctioning away excess fat tissues from targeted areas. However, liposuction mechanically dislodges the fat tissues to vacuum them out of the body, while Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound techniques. As such, Vaser liposuction provides safer and more consistent results. Some say that Vaser liposuction is also faster and less painful than traditional liposuction. Accents Plastic Surgery only provides the latest cutting-edge treatments for optimal results and recovery.
Liposuction Treatment Areas
Reasons for Liposuction
Liposuction is suitable for patients who have trouble eliminating stubborn pockets of fat, despite their best attempts through natural methods, like workouts and dieting. Sometimes, traditional methods fail to reduce stubborn pockets of fat because you can’t spot-reduce with general weight loss methods. Liposuction, however, is a body contouring procedure that removes targeted pockets of fat. This procedure is only suitable for patients who are within 15 pounds of their ideal weight. It removes unwanted pockets of fat without addressing your overall body weight.

- Have unwanted pockets of fat in targeted areas.
- Are within 15 pounds of your ideal weight.
- Have realistic expectations from the procedure.
- Are willing to maintain the results with regular exercise.
- Don’t have a history of severe bleeding disorders.
- If you are a nonsmoker or willing to stop smoking before the procedure.

The Liposuction Surgery in Detroit
The Vaser liposuction procedure is performed at our state-of-the-art and accredited surgical center. The surgeon will use local anesthesia with conscious sedation or general anesthesia, depending on your preference and tolerance. They’ll inject an anesthetic solution mixed with a tumescent fluid to minimize the risk of bleeding. The surgeon will carefully insert ultrasound probes into the skin via a small incision to heat the unwanted fat tissues. The liquified fat tissues will be vacuumed out of your body via a small tube-like device called a cannula. Once sufficient fat tissues are removed, the incision will be closed.
Recovering from Liposuction
You might experience bruising, swelling, and redness around the treatment areas after the Vaser liposuction procedure. While liposuction provides instant results, you’ll truly appreciate the results once the side effects fade away in 24 to 48 hours. You’ll have to wear compression garments on the treatment areas for several weeks to aid the recovery process. The final results will become evident in 3 to 6 months as your body recovers completely and settles in place. Most patients can resume work and daily activities in a few days, but everyone has a unique recovery journey. Liposuction provides permanent results, but you must maintain a healthy lifestyle to avoid weight gains in other parts of the body.
