Liposuction in Charlotte

Beneath the muffin top, love handles and poochy tummy is the body you once had or dreamt you had. As you get older, despite exercise and a healthy lifestyle, the pockets of stubborn fat just don’t go away. Doctors may tell you that the stubborn fat is genetic, but does that make you feel okay about it? Of course not.

The good news is, you do have a solution to get rid of unwanted fat for good. Liposuction remains one of the most effective cosmetic procedures to remove deposits of unwanted fat and sculpt a more attractive, natural contour to an area.

Results only liposuction can achieve, with minimal downtime

Dr. Ditesheim uses the AquaShape by Body-Jet® when performing liposuction. While it’s Dr. Ditesheim’s skill and highly trained aesthetic eye that helps him achieve beautiful, natural looking results, the AquaShape allows him to achieve it much more gently. Using the pulsating action of a controlled water spray, the fat cells can be gently separated from the surrounding normal tissues, so it can be removed from the body more easily

Dr. Ditesheim is the only plastic surgeon in North Carolina performing AquaShape® Liposuction

Less trauma to the body means minimal swelling, minimal bruising and quicker, predictable recovery. In fact, the technique is so gentle that the fat can be used in fat grafting for facial rejuvenation, or even breast or buttock augmentation.

Remove the fat and get a better shape

Using the revolutionary AquaShape by Body-Jet® technology, it is now possible to sculpt the body and nip those notorious areas of stubborn fat:  the bra roll, muffin top, belly pooch, saddle-bags, and of course, those love handles.

For men, enlarged male breasts (gynecomastia) can be safely and permanently removed without a visible scar. Delicate areas like the inner thighs or arms are excellent for AquaShape by BodyJet®’s gentle approach. We can also use liposuction to improve the shape and tone of the upper arms, offering a much less invasive alternative to a brachioplasty. Reshaping of the breasts either by reducing unwanted breast fatty tissue or by replacing lost upper pole volume via fat transfer can replace the need for breast reduction scars or breast implants.

Why liposuction still rules for effective, permanent fat reduction

Lots of new plastic surgery procedures promise little downtime, but what results can you expect? Non-invasive technologies like CoolSculpting® reduce the absolute number of fat cells by a modest amount. But will a minimal change in the muffin top or a slightly smaller tummy be enough to get you feeling comfortable in a bikini? Liposuction can dramatically reduce fat in an area while also sculpting the body.

More aggressive procedures that use laser to melt fat (Zerona®, SmartLipo®) can actually destroy other tissues in the process by burning, shattering or extracting non-fat cells. The heat from the laser does melt fat, but also requires more healing from the surrounding tissues. Think of the “heat” you feel with a sunburn. Now imagine that on your inside layers. Not too pretty, is it?

Other technologies that use high energy, like ultrasound (Vaser®) or radio-frequency energy (Tickle-lipo®) or even vibratory energy (traditional Power-Assisted Liposuction®) all remove fat cells, but are traumatic to the surrounding tissues and consequently require more healing time.
