Liposuction St Louis Fast-Recovery Less Invasive Procedures

Traditional liposuction used to be an invasive plastic surgery that involves the use of a suction cannula to remove fat deposits underneath the skin. In the early days of liposuction procedures, massive bruising, tissue damage and other complications are common post-operation complications. Patients who have undergone this procedure normally need 2 to 3 months to fully recuperate from the physical trauma. With recent developments in cosmetic surgery, new liposuction techniques have dramatically decreased the need for powerful suctions and mechanical force in removing fat out of the body. Now, all that needs to be done is to “flush” the fat out. These procedures are also known as lipoplasty and liposculpting.

St Louis Lipo Options Brought to You by New Improved Body

New Improved Body is the only cosmetic enhancement clinic in St. Louis that provides the most extensive cosmetic surgeries and procedures in the area. We stay up-to-date with cutting edge body sculpting and contouring technology upheld by the quality you won’t find anywhere else. We have the following liposculpting options for you:

Body-Jet® Water-Assisted Lipo

This is a water-assisted liposuction (WAL) technique that delivers pulses of saline fluids directly to the problem areas to gently dislodge and remove fat. In contrast with traditional liposuction, Body-Jet lipo does not forcefully remove fat cells of the body. Rather, the moderate pressure from the saline fluids causes the fat cells to break away from the tissue surface surrounding it. After breaking the bond between the fat layer and the tissue where it is connected to, it becomes easier for the cosmetic surgeon to draw the fat and excess saline fluids out of the body, thereby reducing tissue trauma. Patients who have undergone the Body-Jet® Water liposuction procedure need a much shorter recovery period and less post-procedure pain killers. Moreover, limpness and soreness in the area operated on are transitory compared to the traditional liposuction procedure.

CoolLipo™ Laser- Assisted Lipo

CoolLipo™ is a revolutionary procedure offered by CoolTouch Inc., a leader, and innovator in the medical and aesthetics technology industry. This cosmetic operation, also called laser-assisted lipolysis, uses wavelength technology to break down and liquefy fat cells for faster and easier removal. In addition to that, CoolLipo’s laser system contracts collagen in the skin which aids in making the skin look firm and tightened even after the removal of fat cells. What sets CoolLipo apart from its predecessor, SmartLipo, is that the wavelength utilized by this newer procedure does not cause skin pigmentation. Patients who used the older technology noticed changes in the skin color and observed increased pigmentation a few weeks after the procedure was done.

VASERlipo® Ultrasound Assisted Lipo

Vaser lipo is a minimally-invasive body contouring procedure that removes unwanted body fat of a patient’s problem areas using ultrasound technology. This procedure utilizes tumescent liposculpture techniques along with ultrasound energy. Tumescence is an important factor in numbing the site where the liposuction will be performed. This also shrinks the blood vessels in the area, therefore minimizing blood loss during the operation. The most visible result of the tumescent technique is that it greatly reduces bruising after the operation. Many patients also report faster recovery time.

Vaser lipo may be performed on various areas of the body including, but not limited to, the face, abdomen, back, arms, hips, thighs, and love handles.

How much does liposuction cost in St Louis?

The cost of liposuction depends on the following factors:

Location – If you will undergo liposuction in areas with a high cost of living expect that the prices will also be in the higher end of the range.
Availability of Skilled Surgeons – If there are a number of highly skilled cosmetic surgeons in the area pricing can be very competitive.
Fees – Fees vary from one person to another for laboratory fees and screenings. Other fees will include the cost of supplies like anesthesia and compression garments.
