What does the procedure entail?
Dr. Gurley performs gold standard liposuction; real liposuction. High energy vibrations and sound waves are added when needed. Feathering out the procedure and smoothing out the body is the hallmark feature of this technique. Inches are permanently removed from wherever needed.
Are there any alternatives?
Alternatives to liposuction include coolsculpting or lipodissolve. Coolsculpting is a freezing device that may remove fat, but it is imprecise, costly, has very mild results (many patients are not satisfied), and, some patients experience a rebound swelling of treated areas. With this system, the fat is NOT removed. Instead, the fat is destroyed and left where it is with the hope that the body will dispell the discharge.
What can I expect?
Most patients may drive and return to work in one to two days and resume full activities in less than two weeks. A compression garment is recommended for four to six weeks to control swelling and speed recovery. The majority of swelling is gone in three weeks, and the body's natural healing process continues for several months.
Who is a good candidate?
If you have diet and exercise-resistant fat pockets, or if you are concerned about your body proportions and have good skin quality, you may be an ideal candidate for liposuction. Additionally, if you have tried coolsculpting or lipodissolve and are not satisfied, then liposuction may be the right choice for you.
Real Artistic Outcomes
Dr. Gurley is highly trained and Board Certified to perform liposuction. There are many types of fat reducing processes out there, but there is only gold standard. Getting the fat out, seeing it come out and measuring it- that is real liposuction and that is the gold standard. Dr. Gurley performs different modifications of liposuction on different parts of the body depending on what she wants to achieve. Ultrasound frequency-assisted liposuction dissolves the connections between fat compartments (cellulite) and essentially liquifies the fat and connective tissue allowing Dr. Gurley to smoothly remove fullness from precisely the areas where you need it.
"In my hands, this is the only system that can sculpt the body effectively," says Dr. Gurley. "It's powerful; it's effective."Make sure you are asking your Board Certified plastic surgeon for "real liposuction."
