Dr. Self certified in tumescent liposution
Dr. Stan Self, of Self Center, P.C. in Fairhope recently completed his training and certification for tumescent liposuction in Beverly Hills, CA. He received the Certificate of Liposculpting Preceptorship by the American Association of Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery. Tumescent liposuction involves the use of a diluted solution of local anesthetic to fill the fatty layer of the skin prior to removing the excess fat. This causes the tissue to become swollen and firm, allowing for excellent pain control. Since general anesthesia is not required, the possibility of potential complications is eliminated. The result is a sculpting of fatty, problem areas into more attractive contours.
Since tumescent liposuction is an outpatient procedure, there are no costly hospital stays. The patient is awake during the surgery therefore the physician can have the patient change their positions which leads to better sculpting of the targeted areas.
Tumescent liposuction has an unprecedented safety profile. It allows the physician to efficiently remove excess layers of fat with little discomfort, quick recovery, and improved cosmetic results. Patients see little or no bleeding, less bruising and little down time.Liposuction is most effective for addressing those "problem areas" that do not respond to diet or exercise. It is in no way intended as a substitute for weight loss. It is a contouring procedure and most effective results are obtained with a combination of a healthy diet and exercise.Dr. Self will be offering this procedure beginning in December 2008.
Dr. Self also offers Botox®, line fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm®, and Perlane®, IPLs for skin rejuvenation, hair reduction, and weight loss treatment. At the Self Center, you can be sure it is "ALL ABOUT YOU." For more information on any services or procedures call the Self Center at 928-8760.
