If you’re looking for the best Liposuction specialist in Hawaii, look no further. Dr. Larry Schlesinger performed the first liposuction in Hawaii in 1983 and has performed more than 7,000 liposuctions since then.
Liposuction is an extremely popular cosmetic procedure that involves suctioning fat deposits in specific areas of the body. While it can provide results that suggest it is a weight loss surgery, it is actually a body contouring procedure that is designed to sculpt a patient into an aesthetically pleasing figure.
Benefits of Liposuction
The goal of liposuction is to sculpt, tone and add definition to certain parts of the body. Liposuction is used to remove the layer of fat beneath the superficial layer and reduces the number of fat cells in a specified area. Liposuction is the most common cosmetic procedure in the United States and results in an improved body contour and very little scarring.
Performed under general anesthesia, liposuction uses a narrow stainless steel tube to suction fat through a small incision. Liposuction is generally performed on the abdomen, chin, hops, buttocks, or upper arms. Other areas can also be improved with liposuction.
Dr. Schlesinger’s preferred liposuction technique involves a tumescent injection to decrease patient discomfort and bleeding, followed by skillful, manual suctioning of fat cells. According to a study performed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 90 percent of surgeons perform traditional liposuction as opposed to the 10 percent that use various laser procedures.
Dr. Schlesinger prefers the traditional liposuction technique because laser liposuction techniques (SmartLipo, SlimLipo, etc.) provide no additional benefit to the patient and in many cases lead to bumpiness in the treated area. Additionally, some patient’s needs simply cannot be met by laser liposuction techniques.
Serving patients from Honolulu, Maui, Kona, Hilo, and across Hawaii, Dr. Schlesinger is the expert liposuction specialist you are looking for.
