About Liposuction

Liposuction has been around for decades. This fat removal technique has been altered and advanced to provide patients with a safe and efficient treatment for reducing bothersome fat bulges. In a liposuction procedure, a thin tube called a cannula is used to slim down the fat layer found just below the skin.

Dr. Yoo specializes in tumescent power-assisted liposuction. He has found this method to be highly effective, safe, and provide the best results.

This lipo technique implements tumescent fluid, a mixture of epinephrine and local anesthesia. The fluid is administered to the treatment area first and helps to prepare the area for fat removal. Epinephrine constricts blood vessels which minimizes bleeding during surgery and lowers the amount of bruising in post-operative recovery. The solution will separate fat cells and allow them to be more accessible and easy to remove.

Power-assisted liposuction implements a vibrating tool that helps to further break up fat cells so that the fat removal process is gentle and does not cause much trauma to the surrounding healthy tissues.
