Liposuction is a body contouring technique that is capable of removing excess fat from problem areas that do not respond to diet and exercise alone, making liposuction an ideal choice for people interested in firming up those stubborn areas. As we age, the body stores fat differently and can be more difficult to get rid of in common areas such as the stomach, arms, legs, flanks, face and neck.
There are several types of liposuction available today, with Dr. Gonyon’s preferences of tumescent liposuction, standard liposuction with the use of a salt water, adrenaline and anesthetic solution to help numb the area and break up fat deposits.
Liposuction is an ever-advancing part of the field of cosmetic surgery, but new technologies do not necessarily mean better results. Your results rely most heavily on the skills and experience of your surgeon. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Denis Gonyon uses his years of experience and training in hundreds of liposuction procedures and has provided exemplary results for people in Northern Colorado.
The Liposuction Procedure
While there are many different types of liposuction, the basics remain the same. Liposuction is performed in our AAAASF-accredited surgical facility. To perform liposuction Dr. Gonyon will make a few small incisions in the area being treated. A thin metal tube, known as a cannula, is inserted through these incisions and suction is applied to remove the fat.
The differences in surgical techniques are the size of the incision and cannula used, and the solution used to assist in breaking up the fatty deposits.
