Dr. Sheffield uses the tumescent liposuction technique to remove the excess fat from the patient’s buttocks, hip area, ankles, stomach, breasts, calves, arms, and neck. It is cosmetic surgery, but Dr. Sheffield uses a tumescent liposuction procedure by inserting the tumescent solution into the patient’s skin’s fatty layers to suction out the excess fat. This solution contains local anesthesia, adrenaline, and the salt-water solution. The tumescent anesthesia technique uses more fluid than 2 to 6 times in volume to remove the excess fat.
According to Dr. Sheffield, “We do not use general anesthesia or IV sedation procedure to carry out the liposuction technique. The local anesthesia liposuction is used as it is a minimally invasive and non-surgical procedure. The patients will not feel sedated or anxious while they are going through this procedure. Moreover, the incisions are fairly small to be visibility with be minor. The best thing about getting liposuction is it will improve your overall body shape, no operational trauma, no physiological changes, etc. Although, a few patients who want to improve their saggy skin need to control their weight before opting for this procedure.”
The liposuction Santa Barbara procedure is best for patients who cannot remove stubborn fat from their body parts like thighs, neck, stomach, breasts, etc., even after lots of workouts or dieting. People with low excess skin as higher excess skin can sometimes produce contradictory results, and the people who want to improve their body aesthetics.
“We will recommend this tumescent liposuction procedure for people who want to get rid of the stubborn fat, but the aging and patient with post-pregnancy issues need to have proper consultation if they want to get this procedure done. Most people who opt for the local anesthesia or tumescent anesthesia technique will save and have a quicker recovery when compared to a full general anesthetic procedure, which is the most cost-effective way. You do not have to worry about weeks of recovery as patients can return to work after a short rest depending on the procedure perfromed.”
At Dr. Sheffield’s practice, patients will find new-age innovative techniques for liposuction surgery along with the minimimally invasive approach. Even there is little scarring or bruising on the patient’s body parts where this technique is performed.
