Is in-office liposuction better than traditional liposuction?
“There are several advantages,” Dr. Randy Birken said, founder of Birken Medical Aesthetics. “First, there’s no general anesthesia, making the procedure safe. And secondly, the surgeon can do more fat sculpturing since the patient can turn and even stand, exposing areas of fat that may be missed when the patient is sleep.”
In-office liposuction is less costly as well, since there are no anesthesia or hospital facility fees. Done with tumescent local anesthesia, the patient experiences no pain during the procedure and can even watch as fat is reduced and suctioned away.
“It really is the way to do liposuction today,” Dr. Birken says. “More effective, safer, and less expensive. The Awake laser liposuction, using tumescent anesthesia, is preferred by most patients.”
Dr. Birken is a board certified gynecologist and member of both the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons and the American Academy of Cosmetic Gynecologists.
