Why Many Atlanta Women Prefer Tumescent Liposuction
Liposuction was first introduced to the United States in the 70′s by Italian gynecologist, Dr. Giorgio Fisher, the inventor of the original form of liposuction. Then in 1978, French physicians, Dr. Pierre Fournier, contributed by further advancing liposuction.
Liposuction became extremely popular in the United States by 1980 along with complaints from patients experiencing excessive bleeding and a rippling of skin. Dr. Jeffrey A. Klein, a California dermatologist, invented the tumescent technique in 1985 that revolutionized liposuction surgery.
The use of the tumescent technique allows surgeons to safely remove superficial and deeper layers of fat with relatively little discomfort. In the artistic hands of Dr. Michael Carter, superior body sculpting results are achieved.
The safety of the procedure is verified by the fact that no major complications have been reported in thousands of patients over many years. There is far less bleeding, bruising and faster healing. The patient is able to walk immediately after surgery.
Patients are not required to have strict bed rest and are encouraged to take long walks the next day which reduces the risk of clot formation in the legs.
Tumescent liposuction effectively removes fat deposits from all areas of the body including face, neck, abdomen, hips, love handles, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, knees and arms.
Dr. Michael Carter’s evaluation of the various liposuction procedures available and his desire to use the least invasive with minimal recovery time for his patients led to his practice solely focusing on tumescent liposuction.
Dr. Carter uses small, straw-like tubes called cannulas that are connected to a large bulb syringe that gently remove fatty deposits. These delicate instruments allow targeting of very specific areas with greater accuracy and sculpting.
While it requires more of Dr. Carter’s time, the benefit of body contouring and sculpting achieved greatly enhances his patient’s happiness with the results achieved.
And that is Dr. Carter’s primary focus – his patient’s long-term health and pleasure with their new appearance.
