Liposuction (aka Liposculpture)

Having a hard time getting rid of those final bulges after months or years of exercise and diet?  You may a perfect candidate for liposuction.  The best results are in patients who are near their ideal body weight but have areas that are resistant to weight loss.

The most common areas of liposuction are the outer upper thighs or “saddle bags,” the lower torso or “love handles,” that lower tummy, the knees, and neck.  Neck liposculpture and other small areas can be done in the office under oral sedation and local anesthetic, which is both cost effective and easier for recovery.

Dr. Severinac was the first to perform Tumescent Technique Liposuction and coined the term “Liposculpture” in 1995 when he began his plastic surgery practice in Fort Wayne. He realized that this technique involves more than just “sucking fat.”  He conceptualizes this as a sculpting process where localized excess fatty deposits are contoured to blend with surrounding contours. The smallest cannulas or suction tubes are used through very small incisions for precision in the sculpting process.

More recently, Dr. Severinac was the first to perform the Safe Lipo Technique were a specialized cannula is placed prior to the Liposculpture procedure.  This cannula helps to separate the fat from the surrounding fibrous tissues allowing the fat to be sculpted more completely and with better overall contouring.

Beware of technologies that promise fat reduction by chemical injection, freezing, or “melting” with laser or light.  They promote these devices as a way to avoiding surgery and scarring.  This is a scare tactic that leads many patients to considerable disappointment with little or no results.  By the time a patient has paid for a series of these treatments, they could have paid for Liposcultpture!   When performed by board certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Severinac with the Safe Lipo technique, Liposulpture is very safe, effective, and with minimal scarring.
