NuBody Liposuction is our personalized liposuction procedure that combines the most effective and proven liposuction methods to achieve the best results in body contouring. Depending on your body type and desired aesthetic outcome, we typically use the water-based Body Jet to loosen the largest clusters of fat in the most gentle way, followed by the SmartLipo device to eliminate smaller fat pockets and tighten your skin.The following answers to the most common liposuction questions will help you navigate through your decision making process.
Traditional liposuction is the forceful, manual removal of fat using long, sharp cannulas. NuBody Liposuction is a gentler method where the fat is liquefied by the latest technology and removed through the gentle flow of water. While traditional liposuction is performed under general anesthesia, our liposuction at NuBody Concepts is performed using local anesthesia and IV sedation, thereby minimizing the any risks associated with general anesthesia as well as speeding up recovery.
CoolSculpting freezes your fat cells instead of flushing them away. Over the course of the weeks following each treatment, your body naturally flushes out these fat cells through your bodily functions. The drawback is that your fat cells are not immediately gone after the procedure, and repeat treatments may be needed.
With NuBody Liposuction, the targeted fat cells are immediately gone after your procedure. Compared to fat reduction with CoolSculpting, NuBody Liposuction delivers better results with a faster procedure.
NuBody Liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure. This means you will not undergo general anesthesia, but rather local sedation as needed. We have many options to achieve the level of sedation desired by the patient—from light sedation, to heavy sedation, to no sedation at all.
Most patients experience little, if any, discomfort during our liposuction procedure resulting from the movement of the cannula. NuBody Liposuction is a much more gentle procedure than traditional liposuction, which involves extensive prodding and poking with the instrument to dislodge fat.
At the beginning of your NuBody Liposuction procedure, your surgeon makes some small incisions in your skin for the tiny cannula he uses to suction off fat. These incisions are so small that no stitches are needed and scarring, if at all, is very minimal.
Yes. One does not interfere with the other. The fat that is removed with liposuction will not come back to the treated area(s) even if you become pregnant.
Typically, you can expect to resume your regular activities 1-2 days after your liposuction procedure. In addition, we recommend no strenuous lifting or exercise for up to 2 weeks. We want to help the treated area to mend, giving you a great result without interrupting the healing process.
No. Your liposuction at NuBody Concepts is done while you are awake and comfortable. The tiny incisions are not sutured or stapled. Therefore, you heal easily and resume most day to day activities within 24 hours.
Gently at 1 week, regularly after 2 weeks
Bruising after our gentle NuBody Liposuction procedure is typically minimal. Some amount of mild swelling can be expected—both resolve quickly as you heal.
