Have you been thinking about getting body sculpting, but are confused about all of the different options out there? Dr. Marcia Byrd’s approach to liposuction uses a combination of procedures and the best proven medical technologies to create remarkable results. The procedures at Byrd Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center include tumescent liposuction, natural fat transfer, CoolSculpting, water-assisted liposuction, SmartLipo, and VelaShape.
Tumescent liposuction is what is thought of as traditional liposuction and is the most commonly performed procedure in the U.S. It involves a few small incisions, and then liposuction is performed using small micro-cannulas, or tubes, to allow for a more gradual and controlled removal of fat. This enables Dr. Byrd to contour the area more effectively. After this procedure you’ll need to wear a compression garment and will not be able to return to work or normal activities right away.
Natural fat transfer uses an innovative new fat-grafting procedure. This body sculpting procedure uses gentle fat harvesting through water assisted laser liposuction to transfer your body’s own fat to areas of the breasts, face, or butt.
CoolSculpting is a safe, non-invasive procedure that is clinically proven for the selective reduction of body fat. It gently cools unwanted fat cells to induce a natural, controlled elimination of the fat cells that are damaged by the selective exposure to cold. The procedure only takes one to two hours, and results can be seen as quickly as three weeks later.
Aqualipo combines laser technology with a body jet fat removal system. This leads to a more precise, less aggressive and traumatic removal of fat than typical liposuction. Patients see significantly better skin tightening and dramatically less bruising, swelling, and bleeding. There’s no need for general anesthesia, and no downtime, which means you can get back to your regular activities right away.
Liposelection uses a patented ultrasound technology to break up fatty tissue. It’s designed to minimize tissue trauma, as nerves and blood vessels are largely undisturbed so patients report low to minimal pain and bruising. The Liposelection process also allows for Dr. Byrd to work with extreme precision. After your procedure you’ll need to wear a compression garment and will also need to take some time to recovery.
Using a high-powered laser, Smartlipo is a minimally invasive procedure that results in less downtime and side effects than traditional liposuction. This procedure is ideal for treating small cosmetic areas of the body and face, and is also good in combination with traditional liposuction for larger areas of fatty deposits.
Velashape is a non-surgical procedure, and treats both the upper layers of the skin and the deeper tissue, which results in a measurable reduction in fat layers, circumference, and the appearance of cellulite. There is no downtime associated with this procedure and is virtually painless. Results can be seen in as few as 4 sessions.
There are numerous options available for body sculpting and contouring, and a consultation with Dr. Byrd is the best way to find the procedure that will give your body the best results.
