I use my experience as a professional artist to the advantage of the patient by doing away with the notion of two dimensional/spot area liposuction.
Three dimensional contouring sometimes includes circumferential lipoplasty – removal of fat from the entire torso, arms or thighs. The use of special custom made small diameter, long cannulas (with special tips) aid in both the removal of fat and increase the predictability of healing. Fewer and smaller entrance sites are needed. This yields smoother more natural results. Specific garments, proper diet and exercise in the post-operative course all aid in achieving the best outcomes.
Three dimensional liposuction has the additional benefit of facilitating “shrink wrapping” of tissues which leads to more dramatic positive shape changes. If treatments are not circumferential, then there can be little shrink wrapping.
Garments aid initially in controlling swelling and then to guide the shrink wrap effect and give stability and confidence in healing. I provide patients the necessary garments to achieve this endpoint.
