Liposuction Franklin

“I will always be grateful to Dr. Bengalsdorf”

*After several years of being treated with cortisone shots and prednisone, I developed a disfiguring condition called dorsocervical fat pad, or more embarrassingly…a buffalo hump. Even though I had lost more than 20 pounds, this “hump” stayed the same size.

Doctor after doctor said there was nothing I could do to get rid of it. After researching on my own, I found that liposuction using micro cannulas could remove the fibrous fat. Dr. B took on this challenge and surpassed all my expectations. My back looks normal again! I will always be grateful to Dr. Bengalsdorf and his staff for their care and compassion.

If you are like millions of other people, you may have reached that “A ha” moment at which you realize your diet and exercise routine is not going to reduce that stubborn fat you’ve been targeting. The lack of desired results can be distressing, even when we are told time and time again that we really can’t reduce fat from a given area, only throughout the body as a whole. Well, fat reduction to specific problem areas can be in your future when you consult with Dr. Bengelsdorf of Franklin Skin & Laser.

Is liposuction right for me?

The goal of liposuction is to refine a chosen area of the body by eliminating accumulated fat cells. Popular areas for women to request liposuction treatment include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and flanks. For men, liposuction may be sought to refine the abdomen, love handles, or the chest if excessive breast tissue is causing “man boobs.” Skilled surgeons like Dr. Bengelsdorf also address smaller areas of concern, such as the cheeks, neck, and knees, with tumescent liposuction.

If you are near your ideal weight and want to complement the natural shape of your body with minimally invasive surgical techniques, tumescent liposuction may be just right for you.

Types of liposuction

Like many procedures, liposuction has improved as new technologies have been developed. Today it is possible to remove unwanted fat from the body using techniques involving freezing temperatures, ultrasound energy, or heat, to name a few. Minimally invasive techniques are desirable for their limited risk, short recovery time, and decreased chance of scarring.

How tumescent liposuction works

The technique involved in tumescent liposuction is to inject the treatment area with tumescent fluid. With this, we accomplish a number of objectives: tumescent fluid numbs the treatment area to achieve a comfortable procedure. It also causes fat cells to expand, making their elimination easier. Lastly, tumescent fluid causes the constriction of blood vessels, which reduces bleeding and post-operative discomfort.

The gentleness of tumescent liposuction makes it an ideal procedure to combine with others, such as fat transfer breast augmentation or abdominoplasty, known as the tummy tuck. During your consultation in our Franklin, TN skin and laser center, you can learn if tumescent liposuction is your ideal path to your best body contours.
