Cool Laser Liposuction

Liposuction can reduce fat from your waist-line, back, arms, flanks, love handles, thighs, buttocks, even chin and neck? Dr. Alexander Gross has performed hundreds of liposuction procedures to both men and women from all over the Atlanta Metro area. It gives him great pleasure to be able to help his patient achieve the body of their dreams.

Liposuction of the Upper & Lower Abdomen, Waist, Flanks, and Lower Back

Liposuction AtlantaMost people carry their weight in their midsection. Even with good eating habits and exercise, the inches keep on adding on in this area. Abdominal liposuction can help, and is the most common procedure for both women and men.

The procedure takes approximately 2-4 hours depending on location. With the use of tumescent anesthesia, the procedure is essentially painless and down time is minimal. The incisions are extremely small and hidden in inconspicuous areas of the body.

You will need someone to drive you home after the procedure. It is best to take it easy for a few days. You will be instructed to wear a compression garment for about 4 to 6 weeks to insure proper healing.

Don’t spend another spring and summer trying to hide the tummy bulges, or the hangover belly in your jeans. Help is just a quick visit to see Dr. Alexander Gross at Georgia Dermatology Center located just north of Metro Atlanta in Cumming, GA and is very convenient to those living in Alpharetta, Milton, Roswell, Johns Creek, Canton, Dahlonega, and Duluth.

Abdomen & Love Handles

The abdomen and love handles (hips) are the most common areas requested by our patients. The love handle procedure is often complimentary to the abdominal liposuction and can make you look and feel better in your clothes. Liposuction to this area of the body can have the most dramatic change to your body shape. The goal is to produce the best improved cosmetic result with less downtime and discomfort. Final results are usually seen 2-4 months post operatively.

Tumescent Liposuction

All procedures are performed in the office using local anesthesia and is a remarkably safe procedure with few significant side effects. Dr. Gross uses the tumescent technique where areas of excess fat are injected with a large amount of anesthetic liquid before liposuction is performed. The diluted solution usually contains a local anesthetic and a drug called epinephrine to shrink capillaries and minimize blood loss. 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.

Tumescent liposuction using local anesthesia offers the benefits of fewer skin irregularities, less bleeding, reduced bruising, and a faster recovery.
