Liposuction at the University of Ottawa
For Ottawa patients wishing to reduce diet and exercise-resistant fat, a liposuction is a viable cosmetic solution. Liposuction surgically removes fat from a variety of areas on the body such as the love handles, abdomen, arms, thighs, buttocks and breasts. Liposuction devices and techniques have evolved to minimize trauma to the surrounding tissues, thus reducing discomfort and healing time. An overview of your health and medical history during your consultation will ascertain your treatment candidacy. Your surgeon will establish a surgical plan to achieve your objectives. The treatment involves a tumescent liposuction technique whereby a solution made up of saline, lidocaine and epinephrine is injected into the treatment area to ease the removal of the adipose tissue. An incision is made and the liposuction cannula is inserted under the skin to remove the fat. Your surgeon will explain what to expect pre-, during and post operation to ensure your safety, comfort and optimal recovery.
