A.) Liposuction procedures were developed for body contouring rather than a weight loss method. Good candidates for liposuction procedures are those who exercise regularly, but have stubborn areas of fat that will not respond to diet or exercise. The risks associated with this procedure increase as the amount of fluid and fat to be removed increases. Therefore, liposuction procedures are not recommended for people trying to lose weight.
Q.) Are there any side effects associated with liposuction?
A.) The most common side effects are bruising and swelling, but these side effects are limited with proper post-op care. Elastic compression garments should be worn for six weeks after surgery to minimize side effects.
Q.) What is laser liposuction, and how does it work?
A.) Laser liposuction is a fat reduction method that uses a laser to loosen the undesired fat cells in the treatment area for easier removal. It is occasionally used in conjunction with our tumescent liposuction procedures to provide patients with the best results possible.
Q.) Will multiple liposuction procedures be necessary to achieve desired results?
A.) Patients receiving surgical liposuction (including laser liposuction) should see a visible improvement in just one treatment and should not need additional treatments with proper post-op care.
Q.) Are multiple treatments with Zeltiq™ and Zerona® necessary to achieve desired liposuction results?
A.) While improvements are evident after one treatment with non-surgical liposuction, such as Zerona® and Zeltiq™, multiple treatments (6 for Zerona® and 2 for Zeltiq™) will be necessary for optimal results.
Q.) Will the fat removed during a liposuction procedure return?
A.) Fat cells develop during or shortly after puberty, so liposuction (both surgical and non-surgical) produces long lasting results. Liposuction patients can potentially increase the size of their remaining fat cells by gaining weight; therefore, healthy diet and exercise should not be neglected even after liposuction.
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta introduces “Cryolipolysis™” procedure to Georgians: ridding patients of fat without surgery.
Using 35 years of experience, serving over 30,000 Atlanta patients with five board certified physicians and three certified providers, Dermatology Associates of Atlanta(DAA) adopts yet another beauty technology: CoolSculpting™ by Zeltiq™.
Atlanta Coolsculpting™ by Zeltiq™, also known as “cryolipo”, is the newest non-invasive fat reduction technology available. Featured on television’s Good Morning America and CBS, Cryolipolysis™ “freezes the fat off” of the abdomen, hips, and back (love handles) of men and women by impairing the fat cells in a targeted area. The impaired area releases the body’s inflammatory response: causing disposal of the fat cells slowly over the months following the procedure.
Impressed by the technology’s preliminary “liposuction-like” results, Dr. Edmond Griffin, founder of Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, even trialed the procedure on himself before becoming the first provider in Georgia to offer the fat reduction technology in early June, 2010.
Dr. Griffin expresses the significance of this new beauty technology, “People see cosmetic procedures like cryolipo on TV and think they’re only available to the ultra wealthy of Los Angeles and New York. We’re making non-surgical fat reduction a beauty reality for Atlantans.”
An ideal procedure for hard-to-trim areas, each CoolSculpting™ treatment takes about an hour, requires no anesthesia or down time, and typically produces a 20% fat reduction in the treated zone. Patients usually report only minor swelling and bruising post-CoolSculpting™; making the procedure instantly popular among athletes and busy professionals who can’t take time off from work or their strict fitness regimes.
