New York Breast Implants and Liposuction
The liposuction procedure begins with the injection of a solution composed of saline (salt water), a local anesthetic called lidocaine, and a small amount of adrenaline to decrease bruising and bleeding. This is known as either the tumescent or super-wet technique, depending on the ratio of the fluid to the fatty tissue being removed.
Once this solution has been introduced into the area planned for liposuction treatment, Dr. Afridi proceeds with one of two different methods of liposuction currently approved by plastic surgeons: suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL) or ultrasonic-assisted lipectomy (UAL).
In both methods, a tiny incision is made in as inconspicuous a place as possible. In SAL, a cannula (small tube) is inserted and moved back and forth beneath the skin, breaking up the fat layer and suctioning it out. In UAL, ultrasonic energy is used to liquefy the fat before it is suctioned out with a cannula.
The Liposuction Procedure
The liposuction procedure may last from one to five hours, depending on the amount of fat being removed. Dr. Afridi will use either local anesthesia or general anesthesia, again depending on the size of the area(s) being treated as well as several other factors. She will discuss which method is best for you during your pre-operative consultation at her New York City office.
