Frequently Asked Questions
What areas can be treated?
Some of the most common body areas treated include: abdomen, inner and outer thighs, waist, back or flank area, upper arms, buttocks, breasts, face, and neck, although virtually any area can be treated. At your consultation, the physician will provide you with a personalized treatment plan to sculpt your body to your desired result.
What is local tumescent anesthesia?
The tumescent technique for local involves the injection of the large volumes of diluted local anesthetic fluid into the fat beneath the skin, causing the area to become swollen and firm. This technique eliminates the need for general anesthesia and also eliminated the bleeding associated with traditional surgery. The tumescent technique results in a procedure that is safe and less painful, with minimal post-procedural recovery time and superior cosmetic results.
How is PureLipo™ different than liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that improves the contour of the body by removing excess fat deposits using a cannula attached to a suction pump, creating tunnels through the fat. Liposuction is more likely to create excessive fat removal, dimpling the skin, creating ridges, and damaging the deep dermis.
Is PureLipo™ permanent?
The body’s shape and contour following PureLipo™ is permanent for the most part. Fat cells that are removed by PureLipo™ do not grow back. As long as you do not gain excessive weight, the shape and contour is permanent. If you gain weight after PureLipo™, the figure will be a larger version of the new shape. Although one can expect some changes with aging, as long as there is no weight gain, the result is permanent.
What can I expect during the procedure?
The procedure lasts approximately two hours. In addition to the tumescent anesthesia, you will be given oral medication. You will be awake, but relaxed during the procedure. Most patients feel slight pressure during the procedure. After the procedure, you will be swollen and will experience drainage of the tumescent fluid. Most patients return to regular activities within three days of treatment.
How quickly can I see results?
Most patients will see most of their results within one month post procedure; it may take up to four months to appreciate the final result. For the first few weeks after the procedure, patients experience swelling, which can be alleviated using the Synergie treatments.
