Liposuction is the surgical removal of fat deposits under the skin using a hollow, surgical-grade stainless steel tube called a cannula, in conjunction with vacuum suction. Liposuction can be accomplished either with the use of general anesthesia, or with heavy IV sedation, or totally by local anesthesia.
Aside from the risk factors of liposuction, one of the downsides of this procedure is that oftentimes scattered clumps of fat remain, resulting in uneven contours. This is due to the varying quality of adipose (fat) cells; particularly the density and fluidity of the cells which differs from person to person. There is a limit to how many cubic centimeters of fat can be safely aspirated, so trying to liposuction out remaining clumps is usually not an option and the patient is left with less than desirable results.
Fortunately, studies show that mechanical massage done in conjunction with liposuction (before and after the surgery) can improve the results of liposuction. LipoMassage™, done with the CelluM6 Keymodule, creates a skin fold with powerful suction and "mechanizes" the fold using variable speed rollers.
Several LipoMassage™ sessions 1-2 weeks prior to your liposuction procedure can help soften adipose tissue, making it easier to aspirate. A few sessions immediately after liposuction can increase the rate of drainage of anesthetic solution, liquified fat and associated edema following surgery.
LipoMassage™ is an Endermologie technique patented by LPG, a world leader in esthetics technology. It is also effective in treating skin fibrosis (scarring from burns, radiation therapy) and lymphedema.
