What is Liposuction ?

Tumescent liposuction avoids the use of sedative anesthetic drugs and minimizes patient recovery time. Dr. Sattler uses long, thin tubes to selectively remove body fat through very small incisions. Patients with youthful and elastic skin tend have the good results with liposuction. Patients with substantial stretch marks and inelastic skin do not regain skin tone after a liposuction procedure and should consider other types of body contouring surgery.

How is Dr. Sattler's Liposuction technique done ?

Liposuction is a surgical body contouring technique that relies on selective removal of excess body that to improve body contours in a predictable way. Excellent liposuction results depend on removing a sufficient amount of fat to contour the body, but leaving enough fat behind for the result to be smooth and natural appearing. Dr. Sattler's liposuction technique results in a more youthful and sculpted physical appearance. Dr. Sattler's attention to detail and artistic sense of the human form come into play as he sculpts a new shape for his Seattle area patients.

Body regions that can be treated with reliable results include

  • Abdomen (tummy) 
  • Flanks (love handles) 
  • Waist and Hips
  • Thighs and calves 
  • Knees
  • Arms
  • Neck 
  • Breast
  • Male chest

Good Liposuction results depend on surgeon experience

A good liposuction result is most dependant on the surgeon, and not the particular liposuction device, laser, water jet or other technology used.  Dr. Sattler will plan your liposuction procedure very carefully based on your pre-operative treatment plan. Meticulous planning of liposuction procedures is essential for a smooth post-operative contour.

Anesthesia for Liposuction

 Dr. Sattler is an expert in tumescent anesthesia, and prefers this technique for his liposuction patients. Numbing medication (tumescent solution) is always used during the procedure to enhance post-operative comfort. The technique does not require general anesthesia.

Recovery after Liposuction

Most of our patients return to work within 2-3 days. Patients wear a compressive garment for a few weeks post op which helps reduce bruising and swelling.
