If you have tried and tried to work out at the gym and eat well and have yet to see any change in your shape, you could be an ideal patient for liposuction. Often called lipo, the surgery involves removing excess fat deposits from the body. This, in turn, gives the patient a nicely contoured body. Although, one should note, that this does not mean that the patient in question should stop exercising and eating right.
Liposuction can be performed in many different areas, such as the thighs, hips and buttocks, abdomen and waist, upper arms, back, inner knees, and more. This surgery can also be performed with other surgeries, such as a tummy tuck, but this is not required and it can be performed alone as well.
Dr. Drehsen has become noted as one of the most effective and experienced doctors of liposuction and plastic surgery as a whole. He believes in a “less is more” approach to bring his patients as natural a look as can be achieved. His career spans over 25 years, and by following a holistic approach, he has made a career out of transforming inner beauty into a visual aesthetic enjoyed by all.
Since liposuction is an extremely common way for patients to remove stubborn fat, the process can sometimes be rushed, which can lead to abnormal contouring. Dr. Drehsen believes in a carefully thought-out plan and analysis of the surgery itself, as well as the reshaping and contouring that comes after in order to receive the best results possible for his patients.
His office also boasts some state-of-the-art technology available for liposuction, such as the Power-Assisted Liposuction technique, to make the process easier and more effective. We also have laser liposuction available for areas that may be more difficult to access or remove fat from.
In addition to just removing fat, Dr. Drehsen can offer the patient an additional service with the fat taken from the liposuction. For example, this fat can be used to give a Brazilian Butt Lift, where the buttocks are firmed up and rounded with the excess fat. There are numerous options available besides just removal of fat with Dr. Drehsen. The tumescent technique of liposuction is quite straightforward and also involves many benefits.
