Not Quite Ready for that Holiday Dress? Consider Tumescent Liposuction for a Dramatic Change in Your Body Shape

Is that slinky little party dress just begging to be worn, but it’s just a teeny bit too snug here and there? Is there a little belly bump, back fat or lumps around the hips causing a not so appealing bulge in your special holiday ensemble? Do you exercise faithfully and watch what you eat, but that jiggle in the middle or saddlebags just won’t budge? If you feel a round little belly might be fine for Santa, but not for you, body contouring with tumescent liposuction just might be the answer. Dr. Gross says NOW that the leaves are starting to fall, so can your clothing size. Especially around the middle!

Why is NOW the Time for Liposuction?

Dr. Gross uses the Tumescent Liposuction technique to achieve the best results in the mid-section, back, thighs, love handles and saddlebags. The procedure offers significant improvements over earlier methods. First, areas of excess fat are injected with a specialized liquid solution containing a local anesthetic and a drug called epinephrine to shrink capillaries and minimize blood loss before liposuction is performed. The liquid causes the compartments of fat to become swollen and firm making it easy for the liposuction cannula to travel smoothly beneath the skin as the fat is removed.

However, although this technique offers the benefits of fewer skin irregularities, less bleeding, reduced bruising, and a faster recovery, it is important to consider that there still is some mending time associated with the procedure. Because compression bandages are typically worn for up to one month following the treatment, you need to plan ahead to be new and improved by the time holiday dress-up festivities are in full swing. Plus, an added benefit for fall body sculpting is that when temperatures are cooler, you can hide the compression garments under long sweaters and pants.

What are the Benefits of Liposuction with Dr. Gross?

• Georgia Dermatology Center offers the safest method.

•  The integration of the local anesthetic in the solution provides a less painful procedure followed by a minimized post-operative recovery time.

•  Most patients can return to normal schedules within two days.

•  The process accommodates the removal of larger amounts of fat with smoother, more natural results.

•  There is virtually no blood loss or bruising.

•  The length of time required to wear recovery compression material is reduced.

•  For some candidates this type of liposuction can achieve the same results as the traditional “tummy tuck” without extensive surgery. Not only is the cost less but recovery time is significantly minimized.

Georgia Dermatology Center’s Experience and Methods Count

Dr. Alexander Gross at Georgia Dermatology Center does his utmost to be honest and objective about what liposuction can accomplish given your individual concerns, body type, fat distribution, and other factors. The procedure is meant for body contouring to remove stubborn unwanted localized pockets of fat cells that have not responded well to traditional means of reduction, i.e. diet and exercise. Removal of these pockets realistically results in a smoother, leaner looking body contour, but it must be clear that it is not a “cure” for obesity. Check out the “before and after” gallery. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Gross before the leaves are off the trees. Our office is located in south Forsyth just north of Metro Atlanta and very convenient to those living in Alpharetta, Roswell, Johns Creek, Cumming, Canton, Dahlonega, and Duluth.
