At Dr. Jeffrey Poulter's practice serving central Illinois, liposuction is a popular solution for slimming and re-contouring stubborn "trouble spots" for a more slender appearance and an improved self image.
There is no substitute for good nutrition and regular exercise if you want to maintain a healthy body. However, some people are genetically predisposed to carry extra fat in certain areas, and no amount of hard work or healthy eating will change that. Dr. Poulter understands this, and specializes in advanced liposuction techniques that can give you the slim, proportional look you want.
There are so many new "innovations" in liposuction that it can be hard to know which approach is best. Dr. Poulter carefully reviews all of the latest advances in cosmetic surgery, and only offers techniques and procedures that are safe, effective, and get proven results. For liposuction in Illinois, Dr. Poulter uses VASER® liposuction, as it offers numerous advantages over other techniques.
Traditional liposuction involves aggressively breaking up and removing fat, which can damage surrounding tissues and make for a longer, more uncomfortable recovery. The VASER liposuction technology utilizes ultrasonic waves to break up and separate fat cells for removal, while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. For the patient, this means less pain, bruising and swelling, and a speedier return to normal activities. Additionally, Dr. Poulter has seen improvements in smoothing of the treated areas with VASER liposuction.
An experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Poulter is committed to your beautiful results with minimal discomfort and downtime.
Your Liposuction Procedure
At Dr. Poulter's center in Bloomington, Illinois, liposuction is performed for patients who want improved shape and contour in their face, neck, arms, abdomen, flanks, hips, buttocks or thighs. It can even be used as a means of breast reduction for men with excess fatty tissue in this area. Liposuction alone will not help those with loose skin or lax muscles in their midsection. During your consultation, Dr. Poulter will take the time to discuss your goals and expectations, and help you to determine if you may benefit more from a tummy tuck in this case.
Liposuction is typically an outpatient procedure, performed at our on-site surgical suite using local anesthesia with sedation. The cannula is inserted through tiny incisions, and fat is gently and permanently suctioned away. Although it may seem a simple procedure, it requires great precision and attention to detail to sculpt the tissue for a natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing result. Dr. Poulter's experience and training performing liposuction are sought after by patients from all over Central Illinois who want quality results and compassionate care.
