Liposuction — Norfolk Surgery Techniques

Stubborn body fat seems to linger regardless of the work we put into perfecting our figure. If exercise and a healthy diet aren’t creating the body you want, you may be a good candidate for body contouring through liposuction surgery.

Liposuction surgery is a highly popular procedure that can be performed using several techniques. Incision techniques have improved to the point where the incision size required has been dramatically reduced. In addition, a liquid solution is injected beforehand to help reduce blood loss and trauma, making it easier to suction out the fat.

Liposuction uses a small cannula to suction out the unwanted fat, which creates a safer, more efficient process.

To set up an appointment for liposuction surgery, contact experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Lawrence Colen at our Norfolk office. From there, he can assess your goals and specific surgical needs. This process will also help determine which liposuction technique is right for you.

Breast Reduction — Norfolk Size Correction

The primary function of a breast reduction is to reduce the size of the breasts by removing excess tissue and skin. Considering every patient is different and the amount of reduction needed depends on the individual, there is more than just one way to execute the surgery. There are several incision options available.

When it comes to the incision for a breast reduction, a patient can opt for a circular pattern around the areola.

A keyhole-shaped pattern is similar to the first one but has an added incision running vertical down to the crease of the breast.

The inverted-T, or anchor-shaped, incision gets its name because it is shaped like an anchor. It is similar to the keyhole, except it also runs along the crease of the breast. This is the most comprehensive incision pattern used for the more dramatic breast reductions.
