With a liposuction, Dr. Max Pekarev helps patients address unwanted areas of fat and flab throughout their body. If you are considering the surgery and have read our overview on liposuction, you already have a good understanding of the process. However, it may help in your decision to learn more about how Dr. Max performs the procedure.
The degree to which liposuction provides attractive, smooth results and an easier recovery depends a lot on the technique, patience, and attention to detail that a surgeon uses. Dr. Max emphasizes each of these areas in his surgeries.
Technique: Power-assisted Liposuction
The typical liposuction removes fat from trouble spots using a hollow tube called a cannula and a suctioning device that pulls material out through the tube.
The cannula doesn’t do all of the work, however. Often, the surgeon must move the tube through the areas of fat to locate them in different parts of the body and to loosen them from the tissue. This is a rigorous process that can take time.
To work more efficiently and to decrease fatigue, Dr. Max uses power-assisted liposuction. The cannula moves mechanically on its own, which speeds up the process and reduces the movements Dr. Max must make by hand.
Patience in Performing a Liposuction
Conducting a liposuction is a balancing act. On one hand, it’s important to complete the procedure in a timely fashion so that patients can come out from under anesthesia and begin recovery. On the other hand, a surgeon should not work so quickly that the patient’s tissues have increased trauma. His priority should be the patient in front of him and not getting from one surgery to the next as quickly as possible.
Dr. Max aims for this balance in every procedure he performs. He works gently but with precision, removing fat from tissue as carefully and efficiently as possible.
Attention to Detail
Successful liposuctions aren’t just about eliminating fat. They are about identifying and smoothing irregularities and creating a body contour that is attractive, natural-looking, and in alignment with the rest of the person’s features. This is true whether the patient is just having fat suctioned out or whether he / she is having it transposed, as in a Brazilian butt lift (a procedure that offers fuller, shapelier buttocks).
Dr. Max prioritizes patient safety, comfort, and aesthetics. He uses an artistic eye to evaluate the transitions between liposuctioned areas and the rest of the patient’s body. This attention to detail is one of the reasons that patients continue to refer friends and family to our practice: recognition of the excellent results we provide.
