While liposuction has been available for decades, the technology behind this fat extraction technique has advanced significantly. Modern liposuction, as is performed by Dr. Hu, produces a far superior result to what was achieved in the past. Dr. Hu uses the most advanced techniques of liposuction Bakersfield offers, including:

  • Tumescent Liposuction: This liposuction technique involves injecting a medical solution under the skin prior to fat extraction. The formula includes a numbing product, lidocaine, to make the extraction comfortable, along with adrenaline that works to limit bruising and bleeding. This approach allows for an easier, more comfortable extraction than was possible with the older, traditional method of lipo. It is performed under general anesthesia, and appropriate for larger quantities of fat.
  • SmartLipo: The SmartLipo approach includes laser technology. A tiny laser system is used to melt the fat from the surrounding tissue, after which is it extracted. The laser makes it possible to extract the fat with less suction for an easier, more comfortable experience, and a faster recovery time.

What Will a Liposuction Treatment Feel Like?

When you undergo lipo in Bakersfield, you may be under general anesthesia if your procedure is tumescent liposuction. With SmartLipo, there is no need for general anesthesia. The fat is more gently extracted, causing less trauma to the surrounding tissue, leading to a faster recovery time. You will simply come to our private clinic at the scheduled time, be prepped for your procedure, and lie back and let Dr. Hu get to work resculpting your body. When the procedure is completed, you will be wearing a compression garment to keep the area stable for healing. Arrange for a trusted friend or family member to drive you home, so you can rest and recuperate.

What is the Recovery from Liposuction?

You will need some time to recover from your procedure. Expect some swelling and bruising, which slowly fades as the days pass, with your new body shape revealed. You should be careful to avoid vigorous motions in the early stages of recovery and take gentle walks to aid in circulation and healing. Avoid alcoholic beverages, drink lots of water, and eat healthy foods – caring for yourself during this period will make your recovery faster. After your lipo in Bakersfield, you will be provided with full aftercare instructions, and Dr. Hu and his friendly, professional staff is always available to help you with any questions or concerns.

Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?

There are many body sculpting techniques available, and Dr. Hu offers them all, including liposuction and CoolSculpting. What is right for you? We invite you to visit our private clinic and have a private consultation. For some areas of fat, CoolSculpting cannot produce the contouring result of liposuction. Whichever procedure will achieve the body shape you envision will be recommended, or a combination of treatments. Liposuction produces faster results, as CoolSculpting requires several months before the body naturally sheds the dead fat cells. If you have fatty areas on any of the following body areas, you may be a good candidate for our modern liposuction in Bakersfield:

  • Fatty buttocks
  • Fatty deposits on upper thighs
  • Back fat
  • Fatty tummy zone
  • Love handles
