What form of liposuction does DreamBody provide?
DreamBody Medical Centers offers the most advanced cold laser liposuction procedure available. At Dreambody Medical Centers, we have improved upon the common laser liposuction procedures with the use of our cold laser, ultrasound suction , improvements in Tumescent fluids, and the use of smaller instruments. This in-office procedure is safer than the “traditional” liposuction done under general anesthesia in surgical centers. These tools are minimally-invasive, and allow our doctors to be very precise, leaving you with small incision points that will heal within days.
Who are the best candidates to receive Laser Liposuction?
The patients that have the highest satisfaction are ones that have specific problem areas that do not respond to diet and exercise. We can address these specific areas and once the fat cells have been removed, they will never return.
What is laser liposuction?
Laser Liposuction is a safe, easy, and minimally-invasive procedure to permanently remove fat. A cool laser is used externally prior to the surgery in order to soften fat cells and allow them to release the lipids trapped inside making the removal of the fat easier providing more even results. Dreambody is proud to offer the latest in liposuction technology!
How does laser liposuction work?
Our laser liposuction procedure uses a small laser that is inserted in the area through a minuscule incision. No general anesthesia is required making the procedure much safer. The laser then melts the fat cells in the area and suctions them out. The fat cells removed are permanently gone. Laser Liposuction has faster recovery times with less bruising, swelling and bleeding than traditional liposuction. The skin is also tightened to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
What can I expect after having the laser liposuction procedure done?
Laser liposuction is so quick and painless that most of our patients are able to return to work within a day or two after the procedure. The best part of the laser liposuction procedure is that once the fat cells are removed they can never grow back, so the treated area will remain thin, leaving you with permanent results! Although you are able to return to normal activity, some caution is necessary to avoid over exerting your self. This is a medical procedure and your long term results will be better if you follow our post op protocol. During the healing period you will need to wear a compression garment over the area. We also recommend no strenuous exercise immediately following surgery. Our post op laser treatment schedule should be followed to aid in the healing process and give you the best results possible. We treat each person as an individual so we follow up with you immediately after surgery in order to guide you through the few steps needed to give you great results.
How safe is having laser liposuction done?
Laser liposuction is also safer than other procedures because our sophisticated tools reduce swelling and risk of infection. The procedure only requires local anesthesia, so you will be awake during the surgery and able to walk away shortly after.
What areas of the body can be treated?
With the unique and Advanced DreamBody Liposuction Procedure nearly any part of the body can be treated. The most popular area for men and women is the abdomen and “love handles.” This minimally invasive technique also allows the DreamBody Liposuction Specialists to treat the following areas with far faster recovery and almost no bruising.
- Back (including bra rolls)
- Inner and outer thighs
- Upper arms
- Chin (double or hanging chin)
- Male breasts (gynecomastia)
Which areas do women usually have done?
Women generally have their abdominal area done along with sides or flanks. Lateral hips or saddlebags are the next most commonly treated area, followed by inner thighs and knees. Bra rolls in the back along with the front bra bulge known as the “teacup” is fairly common.
Other areas commonly treated with laser liposuction include upper arms, knees, lower legs and neck/chin.
Which areas do men usually have done?
Men generally have their abdomen, love handles/flanks, chin/neck and breast areas done.
What kinds of results can I expect after receiving laser liposuction?
Once you’ve had an area liposuctioned, those fat cells are gone forever. Your body cannot replace them with new fat cells.
How much fat can the Advanced DreamBody Liposuction Procedure remove?
DreamBody Specialists can safely remove up to 70% of the fat in a treated area. The percentage of fat removed depends on the amount of fat present, the fibrosity of the patient’s fat (some patients have harder fat than others), and the aesthetic goal to be achieved. A good way to estimate your final results is to pinch the area you want to have treated and feel how deeply the muscles are beneath the skin. Feeling the muscle is most easily done by contracting the muscle and rubbing your hands over the skin. The distance between the skin and the outside of the tensed muscle is the thickness of your fat layer. If you would be satisfied with a 50% reduction in the fat layer, you would be a good candidate and pleased with your results.
How experienced are DreamBody Doctors and the others working in the DreamBody team?
DreamBody physicians are highly-trained in this specialty and have performed countless liposuction procedures around the country. Moreover, we believe that a team approach gives patients the highest degree of attention and care. Each member of the DreamBody team is committed to this specialty and our patient’s utmost satisfaction.
Does the Advanced DreamBody Liposuction Procedure produce permanent results?
Yes! Our revolutionary procedure produces easily visible results IMMEDIATELY! Also, it safely and permanently removes fat. That’s right – forever! Fat cells that are removed by our unique procedure never grow back. Your DreamBody benefits will always be apparent.
Will I get fat in weird places after I have liposuction?
No! It is a common, but false, myth that the fat removed by liposuction grows back in other places after the procedure. The number of fat cells your body possesses was determined by the time you went through puberty. Once you become an adult your body does not make any more fat cells.
What happens if I gain weight after liposuction?
If you gain weight after liposuction, you will gain it proportionally in areas that were treated. It is possible to gain weight again in the treated areas, but not to the same extent as prior to the procedure since a high percentage of the fat cells in that area have been permanently removed.
Will I be awake or under general anesthesia?
You will be wide awake because our remarkable new techniques are so minimally invasive that they only require simple local numbing of the skin, NOT heavy anesthesia. This translates into far faster recovery, less downtime and most importantly, the safest possible means of performing liposuction. DreamBody even offers nitrous oxide (laughing gas) during the procedure for those patients who so desire.
Will the DreamBody advanced liposuction procedure leave scars on my body?
The incisions made by our highly trained and experienced specialists are tiny and placed as inconspicuously as possible. Since there are no stitches there are usually no visible scars. The original incision marks on most patients are difficult to identify in 12 months and usually fade away with time.
How much bruising or swelling will I have?
Because DreamBody’s revolutionary technique causes far less tissue trauma and inflammation than traditional liposuction, bruising and swelling are minimized. DreamBody Specialists use only small insertion points, which do not require stitches. Therefore, our patients experience much less bruising and swelling than conventional liposuction techniques.
How long before I can go back to work?
Many of our patients are able to return to work the next day, depending on the areas treated. All patients should be able to return to normal desk-type work within 1 to 2 days and although soreness and tenderness will limit the speed with which a patient can move about, patients should be reasonably comfortable while sitting at a desk or working at a computer. Many patients are able to enjoy a dinner out the very same evening of their surgery.
How long until I can exercise?
Most patients can resume their routine exercising within a few days after the procedure. We recommend that patients start out by doing about 25% of their usual amount of exercise, then keep increasing the level as it is comfortable. If you run or enjoy vigorous aerobics, feel free to wear the compression garment for 3 to 4 weeks or until your skin fully retracts.
How long will the bruising and swelling last?
The duration of bruising and swelling after your procedure should be very minimal but varies between patients. Some patients have almost no swelling or bruising while others may experience some for up to a week.
What about Gynecomastia in men?
Some men suffer from abnormally large breasts, a condition known as gynecomastia. DreamBody’s Advanced Liposuction Procedure is a great solution to this concern. It not only permanently removes the fat, but is so minimally invasive that many of our patients return to work the next day with outstanding results.
