Learn More About liposculpture:
Curated precision instruments in combination with finely honed techniques create gentle removal of unwanted adipose tissue while preserving the healthy tissue
Instruments used during traditional liposuction are typically larger and bulkier. There is no intermediate step preparing the fat for selective removal. It’s similar to using a large crayon versus a fine-tipped pen.
Because there is less damage to healthy tissues, there is less pain and therefore no need for general anesthetics.
The larger, more aggressive cannulas can cause more damage to health tissues which can cause pain that requires general anesthesia to manage.
Preserving healthy tissues and elimination of the anesthesia risks, protect against complications.
The combination of collateral tissue damage and the risk of anesthesia significantly increase morbidity and mortality.
The preservation of healthy tissues reduces post-treatment pain, reduces bruising, and speeds the healing process.
Damage to healthy tissues can cause excessive swelling, bruising, and injury to muscles, causing severe postoperative pain and prolonged recovery.
With greater precision, the areas of the body can be sculpted to the desired shape and prevent contour irregularities like lumps and waviness caused by skin and muscle damage.
The relative lack of precision of traditional instruments and techniques make it much more difficult to achieve optimal results.
The Treatment Process for the Arms
Great outcomes begin with the moment you meet the doctor. Dr. Miller will evaluate your arms and determine the best course of treatment. If you are a candidate, he will use your expressed desires to direct the rest of the treatment process.
Mapping your Body for Optimal Results
Just before your treatment, Dr. Miller will place surface markers so he can mentally visualize your three-dimensional arm anatomy throughout the treatment process. This allows him to make minor precise adjustments to further refine and optimize your results.
After the area is completely numb, the Dr. Miller uses a small laser fiber to deliver fat melting energy to the area. It is during this step that he will apply the 3D Sidelight technology to address loose skin. The fat is then removed and each arm is sculpted to its optimal shape.
Step 1: Ensuring Comfort
Numbing fluid is infused into the fat through tiny openings in the skin. This ensures that the area is completely numb and protects the healthy tissues for the remainder of the treatment.
Step 2: Gentle Melting
The Smartlipo Triplex Laser is used to gently "melt" fat and stimulate collagen production, allowing the skin to tighten over time.
Step 3: Gentle Elimination
Finally, the liquified fat is removed using the MicroAire™ power-assisted liposuction system, which facilitates increased control and precision when contouring the area.
Recovery for Liposculpture of the Arms
Our treatment is designed to limit recovery time and discomfort.
Your treatment will be customized to your individual anatomy and needs, so your recovery times may vary. Many of our patients return to work the next day, though we recommend that you give yourself at least two days to rest. You may be slightly sore the next day, but most patients find that Tylenol provides enough comfort. We will provide a compression garment for you to wear for 3 weeks, but you may need to wear it longer depending on how your arms are healing. You can resume a light workout in a week, but you should avoid heavy lifting or intense exercise for 2 weeks.
