Awake Liposuction

Awake Liposuction: This variation of liposuction uses local anesthesia to numb the treatment area, keeping the patient awake during the procedure. It’s preferred for smaller fat deposits and avoids the risks of general anesthesia.

Pros: Reduced recovery time, less grogginess, potentially lower cost.

Cons: Can be uncomfortable for some, may not be suitable for larger areas.

Alternatives: Non-surgical fat reduction methods like CoolSculpting (freezing fat cells).

Recovery: 1-2 days for minimal discomfort, up to a week for swelling and bruising.

Disclaimer: Consult a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine candidacy and choose the right liposuction technique for you.
