Liposuction done ‘wide awake’ and re-using the fat for natural breast augmentation
Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/16/2016 -- Liposuction surgery has changed a great deal over the last 20 years. It used to be a procedure that was done under general anesthesia, with the associated risks to patients from general anesthesia. There was also blood loss and trauma and there was a recovery time necessary afterwards. Fast forward to 2016 and liposuction is now a procedure that is done with the patient awake using local anesthesia. They can even sit up and review the surgeon's handiwork and ask to remove more. And a person's extracted fat is no longer just thrown away – it can be re-used around their body & face in an increasing range of procedures.
The techniques and benefits of 'patient awake' liposuction and natural breast enhancement using fat transfer are discussed on this week's (14Mar16) episode of Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today on webtalkradio.net. Popular repeat guest, triple board certified plastic surgeon Dr Adam Schaffner, from New York City, talks with show host, Edmonton cosmetic dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka.
In this in-depth interview, Dr Lycka & Dr Schaffner begin with a discussion about how liposuction has changed. They highlight the different aspects of 'patient awake' liposuction, and how it benefits patients & surgeons alike, particularly being able to chat with the patient during the procedure. They consider the tools and techniques for best practice, and for the best outcomes for the patients. They then move on to what happens with the fat that is removed. There are an increasing range of procedures available to transfer the unwanted fat to enhance and improve other areas of a patients face and body. In this interview, the two doctors discuss natural breast enhancement using fat. It is also known as fat transfer, fat grafting, auto-augmentation or natural breast augmentation.
