Three Types of Liposuction in Augusta, GA

July 23, 2019

Liposuction in Augusta, GAHave you hit a plateau at the gym or there’s just a stubborn fatty area that won’t go away no matter how much and hard you work out? Liposuction is an effective way to remove stubborn fat cells from problem areas in your face and on your body. This procedure can be done to almost every area of the body and enhances your weight loss goals of achieving a more defined and toned look. There are three types of liposuction offered by Dr. Troy Austin. They are: SmartLipo™, Power-Assisted Lipo and Ultrasound-Assisted Lipo

SmartLipo™

SmartLipo™ is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure that is used to contour the body and tighten and tone your appearance. Dr. Austin and his team see dramatic differences and improvements using SmartLipo™ compared to traditional liposuction. SmartLipo™ can be applied to nearly any area of the body. Some of the most common sites are face and neck, abdomen, and jawline.

Because SmartLipo™ is administered using a local anesthetic, you won’t need as much recovery and downtime following your procedure. Additionally, most patients only require one treatment of SmartLipo™ to see their desired results. SmartLipo™ is not recommended for those who are seeking a weight-loss treatment or have more than 30 pounds to lose.

Power-Assisted Lipo

Is Power-Assisted Lipo right for you? Power-Assisted Lipo, otherwise referred to as PAL, is a procedure that is administered through a mechanical cannula. PAL effectively breaks up the fat to more accurately remove the fatty cells. This technique can be used in hard to reach areas of your body such as your inner thighs, around your belly button, and on male breast tissue.

With this improved technique, you will notice less bruising and quicker recovery time. The procedure is also timely, which means you will spend more time at home and less time in the operating room. If you are interested in augmenting your body, PAL can be used to move fat from one area of your body to another, such as buttocks, face, and breasts.

Ultrasound-Assisted Lipo

Ultrasound-Assisted Lipo, or more commonly known as UAL, is a liposuction procedure that turns unwanted fatty areas into liquid. This is not to be confused with traditional liposuction but, the procedures can be combined for a more effective result. Ultrasound-Assisted Lipo is best used for fibrous areas of the body like the back or male breasts.

Candidacy for Ultrasound-Assisted Lipo is similar to traditional liposuction. Adults in good health are eligible. Due to the recent use of UAL, long-term effects are not yet known. Medical professionals, such as Dr. Austin will carefully select eligible patients for this procedure.
