Sometimes, a surgeon needs to step in when no amount of diet and exercise seems to do the trick! Yes, this refers to those very specific fatty areas that you just cannot successfully target. If you are of normal weight or minimally overweight, then special forms of liposuction could be the answer that you've been waiting for!
Dr. William C. Cohen employs only the safest, proven measures to help men and women eliminate undesirable fat from the face, neck, and body. His goal is to help you gain smooth and flattering contour from head to toe! At THE SKIN CENTERx, the acclaimed surgeon offers tumescent liposuction, Smartlipo™ laser-assisted lipolysis, and laser body contouring treatments for Orange County and Riverside County residents to achieve exactly that.
Why Choose Tumescent Liposuction
Tumescent liposuction is similar to traditional liposuction, the difference being that it is regarded as one of the safest and most effective types of liposuction. Pain, swelling, bleeding, and other side effects are drastically reduced, thanks to Dr. Cohen's familiarity with this method. The procedure actually involves the injection of pain relieving fluid into the treated area. Thanks to the tumescent technique, you can be up and about within 24 hours of leaving the operating room!
For the Face
To remove unwanted fat from the face and neck, Dr. Cohen employs tumescent liposuction techniques. This delicate procedure may be a good alternative to the face lift or neck lift. Our surgeon will gently apply the technique to the desired areas using a smaller version of the tumescent wand-like instrument called a cannula. Ultimately, your silhouette will be more beautiful, free of the roundness that troubled you before! Many of our tumescent liposuction patients in Orange County who wish to remove fat from the face and neck, but also want to smooth wrinkled skin, may enhance their results by pairing facial treatment with one of our skin care options, such as a chemical peel, laser resurfacing, or dermal fillers.
For the Body
Tumescent liposuction targets particular areas of the body, such as the thighs, abdomen, hips, and flanks (love handles), where fat is especially stubborn and undesired. As typical of the procedure, Dr. Cohen will start by injecting a local anesthetic solution into the fatty layer of the skin. This will cause the designated area to swell and firm, which will in effect improve the surgeon's control as he proceeds to use the cannula to remove both deep and superficial excess fat.
Smartlipo™ Laser Lipolysis
This non-invasive fat removal technique hones laser energy to break up and dissolve the fatty tissue that you don't want or need. This procedure also stimulates the production of collagen, which helps your skin appear more toned and tight. Since little Smartlipo™ is so comfortable, patients do not require general anesthesia or significant downtime! In short, this technique is safe and effective, all without a single incision or heavy risks!
