Dieting and exercise are extremely important to helping you maintain a healthy body, but sometimes even the healthiest of people struggle to achieve their aesthetic goals. Stubborn fat deposits around the thighs, stomach, hips, buttocks and other parts of the body may not respond to exercise. If you are looking for a way to shave off those stubborn inches, liposculpture may be your solution.
The specific technique used by Dr. John Pocaro is called tumescent liposculpture. This type of liposculpture is performed by using local anesthesia at the site of the incision. Then fat is removed by using a thin hollow tube called a cannula, which is attached to a vacuum device. A large volume of local anesthesia is used to ensure the patient’s comfort; this eliminates the need for general anesthesia and reduces bleeding.
