Boulder Plastic Surgery Offers Minimally Invasive Body Contouring
Whether it’s a last bit of excess fat you can’t seem to lose or some sagging skin you’re looking to tighten up, many of us have certain features we’d like to change. A lot of advancements have been made in the field of body contouring in recent years, and new techniques are now available, including some less invasive options. Advancements made in the stem cell field allow for effective fat transfer, meaning an experienced surgeon can now move fat from one area of the body to another to create a more desirable body shape and silhouette.

Enhanced Liposuction Techniques Produce Great Results
Liposuction often produces great results when performed by an experienced surgeon, but there are a number of other body contouring options available, including high-tech lipo “assistants” that can help modify or augment standard procedures. The term “assistants” refers to other devices the doctor will use in addition to standard liposuction procedures. Devices such as laser lights, ultrasound energy, and water jets are used to break down or liquefy fat, making it easier to remove. This can result in less scarring, bruising, and discomfort, and less downtime is need to recover from this type of procedure. Compared to traditional liposuction, most patients recover much faster, heal quicker, and get better results with the help of assisted liposuction devices.
Another advantage to this type of procedure is that it works with superficial fat and can be used to shape and create a new form. This type of body contouring has not previously been possible with traditional liposuction. Patients who are unable to get get rid of specific pockets of fat regardless of dieting and exercise are ideal candidates. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities within two days or so.
