Liposuction uses powered or hand held suction instruments to surgically and permanently remove fat from problem areas like the ‘love handles’, ‘spare tire’ around the waist, ‘banana roll’ below the buttocks, submental ‘double chin’ and other areas of the face and body. Dr Thaker trained in a personalized preceptorship with the world’s expert in tumescent liposuction technique, Dr Jeffrey Klein. This is a method where local anesthetic solutions are injected into the areas for liposuction, for both pain control and to minimize bleeding.
Tumescent technique is regarded as the world’s safest liposuction technique as established over many decades, hundreds of surgeons, and several thousands of cases world wide. This is superb not only to minimize discomfort, but to maximize patient safety. The patient is comfortable and alert, communicating with the team as needed during the procedure. There is no risk from general anesthesia or IV sedative medications, or ‘going to sleep and not waking up’ as some patients say.
The best part about liposuction may be that the fat can be used for fat grafting or fat transfer to areas where the patient desires enhancement, such as hollow points on the face, or the breast or buttocks. Also, it is this very same fat tissue removed by liposuction, that is thought by some to contain regenerative cells or ‘stem cells’. This is one of the greatest areas of current medical research and development, as well as public interest. The harvest fat thus can provide structure to other areas of the body, once removed from the problem areas by liposuction.
Liposuction is the most popular surgical method of body contouring surgery because it allows the surgeon to re-sculpt specific areas of the body. It is one of the most effective forms of removing fat, and it permanently removes fat cells from the area, using only a few tiny incisions. For patients that do not want a surgical technique, Dr Thaker offers targeted laser lipolysis using the world renowned Scuplsure Laser. This is actually four separate laser heads that are placed on the areas of fat, in a comfortable, non- surgical 20 minute procedure. We also offer cool sculpting, which is a method to freeze fat from problem areas.
Dr Thaker often combines both surgical liposuction, and non-surgical or laser techniques for body contouring to meet patient aesthetic goals, and with the highest margin of comfort and safety.
