Sometimes stubborn fat deposits remain on the hips, thighs, "love handles," arms, and other parts of the body, resisting even the most stringent diet and exercise regimens. These pockets of fat are frustratingly hard to eliminate and can detract from an otherwise fit appearance. Tumescent liposuction provides our Pine Bluff and Delta-area patients with an effective way to quickly remove fat deposits and achieve a sleeker, more sculpted body. Facial liposuction can even be used to enhance the results of neck lift procedure.
All of our tumescent liposuction procedures are performed in Dr. Terracina's own AAAHC-accredited surgical suite to help ensure the highest possible safety standards. In the liposuction procedure, our Pine Bluff and other Delta-area patients first receive a local anesthetic and possibly IV sedation, depending on the amount and extent of fat to be removed. Then Dr. Terracina makes small incisions near the fat deposit and inserts a narrow plastic tube called a cannula to vacuum out the fat as gently as possible so that scarring is minimized. After the procedure is complete, patients go home to rest and recuperate.
The effects of tumescent liposuction are apparent immediately after the procedure, but it takes four to six weeks for patients to see truly dramatic results. Virtually all of our patients report being very happy with their appearance after liposuction. Our Pine Bluff and other Delta-area patients often combine their liposuction surgery with another procedure, such as laser hair removal, for truly dramatic results.
