Dr. Stile uses a tumescent liposuction technique when performing liposuction. This is one of the oldest and safest methods used for this type of surgery. Even though it is more physically demanding and time consuming then other methods, the results are superior.
The tumescent liposuction technique utilizes a large volume of a very dilute solution of local anesthetic (lidocaine) and epinephrine (adrenaline) mixed in normal saline. This mixture is infiltrated (injected) into the fatty area(s) the patient wishes to have eliminated or contoured.
The fat is then aspirated (sucked) out using a series of small cannulas following the operative plan and the patient’s desired outcome. One or more areas may be corrected during the same procedure. Up to five liters may be safely removed in an outpatient setting. This is not a weight loss surgery, it is a contouring procedure.
Lipo-Sculpture procedures designed for those who wish to have improved contours or help patients eliminate diet and exercise resistant “problem areas”.
