Liposuction is usually done under a general anesthetic. But some physicians perform the procedure with laser and while the patient is awake in an office setting.
“By using the tumescent anesthetic technique, the patient is awake and recovers quicker, ” Dr. Randy Birken, a board certified physician said. “Not only is it an easier procedure on the patient, but we can sculpture the fat better by having the patient turn and even standup.”
Dr. Birken uses laser to help improve healing and skin tightening.
“Fat has to be suctioned thoroughly,” Dr. Birken continued. “But the laser adds a nice touch to the results.”
