Liposuction Maryland is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States. Board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber, has performed hundreds of Baltimore liposuction procedures over the past years. He performs liposuction on the neck, arms, chest, abdomen, love handles, flanks, lower back, upper back, thighs, and even the knees. This wonderful cosmetic surgery procedure can remove a significant amount of excess fat through an incision that is barely ¼ inch long!
Dr. Schreiber utilizes two types of liposuction: ultrasonic and tumescent liposuction. Ultrasonic liposuction has been in use for many years. It’s safety and reliability is time tested and proven to give great results. When applied to fat cells, the ultrasonic energy breaks up the fat cells and make it much easier to remove the fat. This ensures that as much fat as possible is removed. Dr. Schreiber commonly uses ultrasonic liposuction in the chest for male gynecomastia, abdomen, back, and in areas that have already been treated because of scar tissue. Following the ultrasonic liposuction, Dr. Schreiber will use tumescent liposuction in order to remove the fat that has been broken down by the ultrasonic energy.
The other form of liposuction Maryland that Dr. Schreiber uses is called tumescent liposuction. This involves the instillation of tumescent fluid into the areas of the body where the liposuction will be performed. This tumescent fluid is commonly made up of sterile normal saline, lidocaine (to decrease pain,) and epinephrine to minimize blood loss. Tumescent liposuction can be done in the operating room alone or in combination with other cosmetic surgery procedures, like breast augmentation, tummy tucks, and even thigh lifts. As a local Baltimore liposuction specialist, Dr. Schreiber also offers tumescent liposuction right in his office under local anesthesia in order to treat smaller areas of excess fat. Ultrasonic liposuction is always done in the operating room because of the equipment necessary to perform this procedure.
Patients’ recovery depends upon the extent of liposuction done. Therefore, the recovery can be as little as a few days to up to one week when a significant amount of fat is removed. Dr. Schreiber will most likely place you in a compression garment in order to prevent any fluid buildup after the liposuction and to help sculpt the body after the liposuction has been performed.
