Little Lipo – Liposuction Procedure
Based on your personal cosmetic goals and your anatomical characteristics, your surgeon may recommend the Little Lipo technique to perform minimally invasive liposuction. The treatment areas that require body contouring and fat reduction will be marked and cleansed. Your surgeon will create a tiny incision in the targeted area to inject tumescent fluid.
This will contain sufficient volume of local anesthetic to numb the affected area so that you remain completely comfortable. The surgeon will insert a tiny cannula under the skin to remove the stubborn fatty tissue while delivering radiofrequency energy at the same time. The RF energy will generate controlled heat in the deeper tissue, making is to melt and remove the fat cells.
The surgeon may not apply any sutures as the incisions will be small and will heal naturally. The compression bandage may be provided to help red
uce the swelling, support drainage of excess fluid, and firm up the new contours in the treated site.
Quick In-Office Procedure and Precise Contouring
Little Lipo is an ideal liposuction technique if you are reluctant to undergo an invasive plastic surgery to reduce unwanted fat pockets from certain areas of the body. Little Lipo is particularly popular among busy moms and working people who want to avoid extended downtime or risk, and are looking for a treatment that does not disrupt their daily routine.
The results with Little Lipo are more precise and accurate because the RF device can exactly target the affected areas. The cannula tip is so tiny that it can reach the precise points without the risk of causing trauma to the surrounding healthy tissue.
Little Lipo liposuction procedure involves a relatively shorter treatment time in your surgeon’s office. Unlike a traditional liposuction plastic surgery, you will not be required to undergo multiple pre-surgery preparatory steps, tests, and medical reviews. No general anesthesia is involved in Little Lipo, so your risk of poor anesthesia reaction is avoided.
The procedure will be performed in the safety and privacy of your surgeon’s office, and you can return home the same day after the treatment. It may take less than one hour to complete the procedure, but this will depend on the number of areas to the treated. Post-treatment recovery will be rapid, and you may not require any downtime. Risks are relatively very low in this procedure compared to a traditional surgery.
