Eliminating pockets of fat on the thighs, flanks, and abdomen can be a frustrating process. Those looking for a smoother silhouette often turn to liposuction to remove unsightly fat deposits on nearly any area of the body. For more than three decades, this procedure has been helping people improve their figures and boost their self-confidence.
Many patients, however, are reluctant to undergo liposuction due to the risks involved in traditional anesthesia and because they are skittish about potential complications. Fortunately, an updated version of the procedure offers a much shorter recovery time. What’s the secret? Local anesthesia.
You can sign up for quick recovery liposuction at your local plastic surgery center in Johns Creek at the upscale Ederra Bella office. Give us a call at (678) 325-0006 or complete our online contact form to learn more about quick recovery liposuction.
Local Anesthesia vs. General Anesthesia for Fat Reduction Surgery
General anesthesia uses intravenous medication to lull patients into a deep sleep. Local anesthesia, on the other hand, uses needles to inject numbing medication into surgical areas. Though the patient stays conscious under local anesthesia, you’ll go through the procedure feeling nothing more than minimal discomfort. Aftercare is also much shorter and safer under local anesthesia. When you consider all these advantages, it is no surprise that patients are increasingly opting for quick recovery liposuction at Ederra Bella.
Will I Feel Pain with Quick Recovery Liposuction?
After local anesthetic takes effect, patients feel nothing more than slight pressure. In fact, most people are comfortable enough to carry on a conversation during their procedure. Afterwards, local anesthetic eliminates the grogginess and disorientation associated with most surgeries.
Furthermore, patients who opt for quick recovery liposuction also reported lower levels of pain, discomfort, and bruising. This will help you feel better faster, so you can enjoy your slimmer body.
Will the Limits of Localized Anesthetic Affect My End Results?
Quick recovery liposuction has two limiting factors: amount of medication administered, and the amount of fat removed. Quick recovery liposuction is uniquely designed to ensure your safety and will rarely impact Dr. Myla’s work.
When Should I Choose Traditional Liposuction?
During your consultation, Dr. Myla will discuss your options and help determine whether you’d be a good candidate for quick recovery liposuction. Dr. Myla may suggest traditional liposuction for three main reasons:
- The affected area may be too large to treat with safe amounts of local anesthetic.
- It may be determined that you are too anxious, or fidgety, to remain conscious throughout the procedure.
- If you prefer to remain unconscious throughout the procedure, Ederra Bella will honor that request of course.
