The benefits of liposuction that patients enjoy with Dr. Burgdorf are his discriminating focus on aesthetics and his meticulous surgical technique. As a board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon, Dr. Burgdorf is passionate about achieving beautiful natural-looking results that match each patient’s desired outcomes for liposuction and body contouring.
Liposuction or liposculpture is among the most common body contouring procedures performed by Dr. Burgdorf at Music City Plastic Surgery. By analyzing each patient’s individual needs, Dr. Burgdorf is able to perform liposuction targeting specific problem areas of the body for fat removal.
FAT REMOVAL WITH LIPOSUCTION
Liposuction candidates find that despite diet and exercise, fat deposits remain in areas of the body. Nashville plastic surgeon Dr. Burgdorf advises candidates that they must be within 20% of their ideal body weight. Patients seeking liposuction should consider the fact that Music City Plastic Surgery offers extensive experience, a caring staff, and focused attention to the needs of every patient.
PROBLEM AREAS THAT CAN BE ADDRESSED WITH LIPOSUCTION
ABOUT THE LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE
Dr. Burgdorf performs liposuction procedures on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia, as administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. Depending on the extent of the procedure and the size of the treatment area, the liposuction procedure takes between one to several hours. All operations are performed within fully credentialed and state-of-the-art surgical facilities near our Nashville plastic surgery office.
Dr. Burgdorf performs liposuction with the addition of tumescent anesthesia (a mixture of a local anesthetic, a blood constrictor, and physiologic salt water). This helps to distend the fat cells and makes their removal safer, easier, and less painful during the liposuction procedure. Often, Dr. Burgdorf will include the use of an ultrasonic liposuction system to aid with the breakdown of fat in anatomically adherent areas.
LIPOSUCTION INCISION LOCATION
Dr. Burgdorf excels at liposuction procedures. He utilizes small inconspicuous incisions during the liposuction procedure. The incisions are about as wide as your finger in order to allow the cannula (a straw-like suction wand) access to the fatty deposits. Oftentimes, these incisions can be hidden in the creases of your skin.
Here are a few of the more common areas treat by liposuction with Dr. Burgdorf and Music City Plastic Surgery.
- Abdomen, Flanks, Bra Strap Area.
- Buttocks, Hips, Arms, Knees.
- Inner and Outer Thighs.
Most of our liposuction patients tell us they feel much better than expected following their surgery and are able to return to work and social activities within one week. To help ensure smoother and tighter results, during liposuction recovery, Dr. Burgdorf will prescribe a compression garment to wear in the post-operative period. Light exercise can be resumed after several weeks and an unrestricted return to all activities can usually occur within six weeks. The skin may take a few months to tighten fully.
Many times, liposuction at Music City Plastic Surgery can be combined with other body enhancement procedures, including breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, or a facelift – or as part of a comprehensive mommy makeover. After undergoing liposuction, patients are thrilled with their results.
RESULTS OF LIPOSUCTION
The results of liposuction can be dramatic. Following liposuction patients often feel more confident slipping into those skinny jeans, and the worry about the overhang at the waistband is removed. Following liposuction patients often feel ready for that “bikini” body. You may find that clothes fit you “just right” after your body contouring surgery with Music City Plastic Surgery or that shopping has become fun again. Many of our liposuction patients have felt this way and we feel confident that you will as well.
