Liposuction in Dallas / Fort Worth
Women and men today take better care of themselves than ever before. Looking and feeling good is important, and nutrition and fitness have become key components of our lifestyles. Unfortunately, many people find that despite diet and exercise, certain parts of the body retain resistant, unsightly pockets of fat. Even people who are in very good physical shape sometimes need a little help achieving an attractive physique, and a Dallas liposuction procedure can be just the help they need.
This may explain why liposuction is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States. New technology has made liposuction safer and more effective than ever for the removal of difficult fat deposits. Dr. Michael Bogdan performs advanced liposuction techniques, including power assisted (PAL) and ultrasonic (UAL) liposuction for Fort Worth and Dallas men and women.

Body Contouring Options
Generally, liposuction removes unwanted fat by suctioning it through a small tube - known as a cannula - inserted through very small incisions. Liposuction can be used to enhance the abdomen, flanks, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks, and neck. It is often combined with tummy tuck in Dallas to achieve a slimmer and more toned stomach appearance. The procedure is designed for removal of localized areas of fat, not to achieve major weight loss. Dr. Bogdan offers the following Dallas liposuction techniques:
- "SuperWet" Liposuction involves injecting the area with a minimal volume of a solution of local anesthetic, saline, and epinephrine. This surgical technique enables Dr. Bogdan to fully visualize the contours that you want to have addressed, without overly distorting the anatomy. This allows for more accurate contouring of your troubled areas, and minimizes discomfort, bleeding, and bruising. This type of liposuction is done with assistance of general anesthesia, and has a short and comfortable recovery time.
- Ultrasonic Liposuction incorporates newly patented ultrasound technology with advanced surgical techniques to break up and remove excess fat. The ultrasound energy is transmitted into the fatty tissue, which breaks up and emulsifies the fat. The surgical device is able to selectively treat only fatty tissue, thus leaving surrounding tissue intact. This method also allows for the use of a very small cannula, which causes less trauma to the surrounding tissue during the suctioning of the fat. Our patients who undergo ultrasonic liposuction in Fort Worth experience less pain and bruising than with older methods. This method also allows a degree of precision appropriate for delicate areas such as the inner thighs, chin, and neck.
- Power Assisted Liposuction utilizes relatively new technology which allows the tip of the cannula to vibrate at a very high speed. This vibration loosens the fat cells, which allows them to be safely and gently suctioned away. There is generally less bruising, faster recovery time, decreased risk for the patient. This method also allows for greater precision in fat removal, allowing Dr. Bogdan to shape a more natural, aesthetically pleasing contour.
