Liposuction has changed dramatically over the last 20 years from being a frankly dangerous procedure done under general anaesthetic, to a procedure where you are awake and can even sit up and check out what is happening and ask to remove more! SO if you have been wondering about getting liposuction but have some questions, then today’s chat with popular repeat guest, Dr Adam Schaffner is for you. This week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today your show host Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka talks with triple Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr Schaffner from his Park Avenue, New York practice. The two doctors talk about the massive changes in liposuction over the years and how the current ‘patient awake’ techniques are so much better, safer and encourage patient feedback and input during the procedure itself. They discuss important aspects of current liposuction techniques and the benefits to patients and surgeons alike. They then move on to what happens with the fat that was removed… that’s where fat grafting (aka auto-augmentation) comes in. It’s perfect – get rid of fat from where you don’t want it and put it where you do – breasts, face, hands, buttocks even. Learn more – take 20 minutes today to listen to Dr Schaffner & Dr Lycka.
