During a 30- to 45-minute initial consultation, doctors discuss the goals and outcomes of liposuction with each patient. Then, those who are deemed good candidates will come back for this outpatient surgery, during which the doctor numbs the area with a local anesthetic and inserts a thin stainless-steel tube (cannula) through a small incision in the skin. Depending on the patient, the doctor will either reach for Vaser's LipoSelect wand, which liquefies fat cells with ultrasonic energy, or Cynosure's SmartLipo probe, which liquefies fat cells with a laser. The liquefied cells are then sucked out of the body permanently via a cannula inserted into the body.
The surgical procedure can last anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours. Aftercare components include antibiotics provided by the clinic, a prescription for post-op medications to be filled by the patient, and possibly compression garments ($250), depending on the area treated.
Beaux Contours: An Aesthetic Institute
Beaux Contours: An Aesthetic Institute was founded by Dr. Feyi Emembolu, who completed her residency at the University of Chicago, one of the country's top medical schools, and Dr. Charles Otieno, who completed his residency at another of the country's top medical schools—UCLA. These two are joined by Dr. Joseph Bivens, an aesthetic plastic surgeon who has been contouring bodies since 1988, and Dr. Dwight Reynolds, who has trained more than 700 physicians and Operation game enthusiasts in the United States and abroad in liposuction techniques and suture suspension. All four doctors stay abreast of the latest developments in plastic surgery so they can surgically contour bodies, tuck tummies, and boost bust sizes using the latest techniques.
