Liposuction in Santa Clarita, CA

The number of fat cells in your body are predetermined, which is why diet and exercise alone do not always provide people with the look they desire. If you’re one of them, liposuction from Dr. Howard Hu of Valencia Plastic Surgery could be the answer.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a type of cosmetic procedure in which fat in the body is broken up and suctioned out. To do this, Dr. Hu will use a hollow, thin instrument called a cannula, which is attached to a high-pressure vacuum. This type of procedure can be performed on many different body parts such as the thighs, neck, calves, chin, abdomen, and buttocks.

Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction is a minimally invasive medical procedure that can be performed on an outpatient basis. Among liposuction’s other benefits are the following:

  • Removes stubborn excess fat that won’t disappear with diet and exercise
  • Sculpts problem areas to restore balance in body proportion
  • Improves body image

How Is Liposuction Performed in Santa Clarita?

Prior to liposuction surgery, Dr. Hu will mark the area to be worked on with a marker. This will help him determine where to make an incision, in addition to guiding him in the sculpting process. Next, you will be given a local anesthetic so you can avoid discomfort during the procedure. Dr. Hu will make a small incision in the area to be worked on and then insert a thin tube. The tube is connected to a vacuum-like machine that works to remove excess fat. This also allows Dr. Hu to contour the area so you can have a more toned appearance.

The tumescent liposuction technique involves Dr. Hu giving the patient an injection under the skin. This injection contains salt water that includes lidocaine, small amounts of adrenaline, and a general anesthetic. This combination of elements works to break up fat cells and results in less bleeding and bruising than traditional liposuction.
