Awake Liposuction

Wide-awake liposuction is one of the newest trends in body sculpting surgery.  Dr. Jejurikar can perform liposuction on selected areas of the body without his patients needing general anesthesia. Not only does this lower the costs, but it avoids some of the side effects traditionally associated with general anesthetic agents.  The procedure is performed at EpiCentre Park Lane (Dallas) as well as at EpiCentre Legacy (Plano).

Technique

Dr. Jejurikar utilizes vibroliposuction for wide awake liposuction. In this system, which was invented in Beligum and is now used extensively in Europe, Asia and South America, the liposuction cannula is activated by air pressure, producing a complex movement of the tip. The complex cannula movement allows local anesthetic to infiltrate more evenly in the patient’s fatty tissue, creating less patient discomfort. In addition, the cannula movement causes emulsification of the patient’s fat, allowing for quicker and more uniform fat removal.  In addition, this technique promotes much less post-procedure swelling and bruising.

Recovery and Results

After wide-awake liposuction, patients may experience mild swelling, bruising and discomfort in the treated area. Compression garments or elastic bandages may be used to help reduce these symptoms while the area heals. Patients usually can return to work in one or two days. Exercise and other strenuous activities should be avoided for two weeks.
