Premier Cosmetic Medical Center Serving Oklahoma City, Norman, Edmond & Nearby Areas of Oklahoma
Unfortunately, proper nutrition, exercise and weight loss don’t always deliver the fit, sculpted body shape that many people work so hard to achieve. If this sounds familiar, liposuction and other types of fat removal offered at Rejuvena Cosmetic Medical Center can help you achieve the toned figure you desire.
Benefits of Liposuction
For many patients, liposuction can be a life-changing experience. Some of the benefits of liposuction include:
- An improved body contour
- Motivation to maintain your toned, fit figure
- More wardrobe options that compliment your frame
- Improved self-image and confidence
Am I a Good Liposuction Candidate?
Most people who suffer from diet and exercise-resistant fat are good candidates for liposuction. However, liposuction is not weight loss surgery. Ideal candidates maintain a healthy, active lifestyle and are near their ideal body weight.
Generally speaking, good liposuction candidates:
- Are in good physical health
- Have realistic expectations for results
- Are prepared for a surgical procedure
- Are willing to closely follow Dr. Hardt’s pre and postoperative instructions
- Are able to take time off during a short recovery period
The best way to determine if liposuction or other fat removal treatment is right for you is to meet personally with Dr. Hardt. She will perform a comprehensive evaluation and recommend the treatment that is best suited for your goals, budget and lifestyle.
Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL)
Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) mechanically breaks apart fat cells with the use of a vibrating instrument. This vibration makes it easier for Dr. Hardt to move the fat cells with the cannula (small tube) and suction it away. Power-assisted liposuction can be used to remove stubborn fat from a number of areas, such as:
- Flanks (to eliminate the appearance of “muffin tops” or “love handles”)
- Calves and ankles
- Upper arms
Laser Liposuction with SlimLipoTM
SlimLipo™ is a laser-assisted liposuction option. Before removing unwanted fat from your targeted areas, Dr. Hardt will use SlimLipo to liquefy the fat cells with laser energy. She then removes the fat cells with a cannula device. By preparing the fat cells for removal, SlimLipo:
- Causes less bruising and swelling
- Is less invasive
- Is less traumatic
Advanced Fat Reduction Technology
Autologous fat transfer combines the best of both worlds: removing fat from areas you don’t want it and replacing it where you do. The result is all natural, all you. Using the autologous fat transfer technique, Dr. Hardt can safely reshape your contours and enhance your facial appearance.
