Is Liposuction Safe?

Posted on May 27, 2016 by: Dr. Rocheford

Are you still hesitant about getting liposuction because you think it isn’t safe?

It’s time to change the way you think about liposuction.  Today’s generation of liposuction procedures are extremely different from the procedure your parents may have experienced.  While old-school liposuction involved a lot of brute force to break up fat deposits, the “new-school” liposuction procedure is safe, effective, and involves far less bruising and swelling.

Ready to discover a new generation of liposuction?  Then it’s time to schedule a consultation at Rocheford Plastic Surgery in Woodbury, MN today.

Safer Liposuction at Rocheford Plastic Surgery

Owned and operated by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Heather Rocheford, Rocheford Plastic Surgery (serving the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area) is home to the safest, most effective liposuction procedures.  Dr. Rocheford uses the tumescent technique, which uses local anesthesia to numb the treatment area as opposed to general anesthesia or IV sedation.  The main goal of the tumescent technique is to minimize swelling and bruising, as well as decrease risks associated with anesthesia.

Recently, we’ve seen a rise in popularity in non-surgical, laser liposuction procedures, such as Coolsculpting. While laser liposuction can be great for treating smaller parts of the body, it can’t deliver the same kind of results with regular liposuction procedures. You’re limited in the area you can treat based on the size of the applicator of the laser, and more importantly, fat loss is not permanent with laser lipo. Additionally, one of the selling points for laser lipo is the lack of anesthesia needed, or overall safety, of the procedure. However, liposuction is safer than ever, especially in the hands of a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Dr. Rocheford specializes in highly advanced liposuction procedures with high success rates.  During your liposuction consultation, Dr. Rocheford will explore your ideal results, as well as what you can expect from the liposuction procedure.

Dr. Rocheford can use her liposuction procedures to treat multiple areas of the body.  Results are permanent, as destroyed fat cells do not come back.  However, clients will need to commit to diet and exercise to maintain results.
