The Procedure

Performed using either local or general anesthesia, the procedure begins with small incisions in the skin that are not more than a third of an inch wide. These allow a cannula, or a small thin vacuum tube, to be inserted into the deep fat tissue layer with minimal scarring.

Once inserted, the cannula is moved back and forth to break up the fat and extract it out of the body. With the tumescent technique, a liquid mixture of lidocaine, epinephrine, and a salt solution is injected into the treated area; this prevents blood loss, provides a localized pain killer for improved comfort, and makes the removal of the fat more efficient. Any lost fluid is replenished intravenously throughout the procedure.

After the proper amount of fat tissue has been removed, the incisions can be either closed or left open to allow for post-operation fluid drainage to occur.

Potential Risks

Liposuction, like any surgery, can carry some risks with it:

  • Allergic reaction to medications
  • Post-operation fluid accumulation
  • Infection
  • A long healing time
  • Burns from friction
  • Creation of blood or fat clots
  • Excessive loss of fluid
  • Possible damage to skin or organs

In extraordinarily rare cases, clotting, fluid loss, and/or organ damage can sometimes result in death; however, our highly-trained staff - led by Dr. Luis Holguín - protects against such unfortunate risks with remarkably high standards of practice and decades of experience in liposuction. As in every surgery though, it is important to consider these risks before choosing this treatment.
