Thousands of women each year choose to remove their unwanted fatty deposits through liposuction. This advanced cosmetic enhancement technique is designed to eliminate excess fat that has proven resistant to even the most rigorous diet and exercise routines. With liposuction, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Richard Cummings, can reduce excess fat pockets in virtually any area of the body, including the arms, thighs, abdomen, flanks (love handles), hips, buttocks, back, and neck.
The Liposuction Procedure
Dr. Cummings performs an advanced liposuction technique called External Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (EUAL). Using EUAL, Dr. Cummings partially liquefies the fatty tissue just prior to its removal. The fat cells are then gently suctioned out utilizing long, thin metal rods called cannulas. Since the fat is liquefied before extraction, smoother results can be achieved with less tissue trauma than was possible with other liposuction techniques.
As these photos demonstrate, the External Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction technique produces smooth, subtle, natural-looking contours, ultimately resulting in a more symmetrical and balanced figure. Using this special technique, Dr. Cummings has helped countless liposuction patients achieve the appearance they have always wanted.
Dr. Cummings will meet with you for an initial consultation where he will explain all aspects of liposuction and what you can expect. Since the EUAL technique typically requires only very small incisions, Dr. Cummings is often able to minimize any residual scarring and reduce the downtime necessary after treatment.
