Dr. Barttelbort performs liposuction for the removal of stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to dieting and exercise. Although not a substitute for weight loss, liposuction is an effective method for reshaping, smoothing and contouring specific areas of the body, including the abdomen, upper thighs, buttocks, arms, neck, and, in men, the upper chest.
Traditional liposuction uses a slender surgical tube, which is inserted through small incisions around the target area to effectively break down fat and remove the cells from the body with suction. In addition to traditional liposuction, Dr. Barttelbort also performs power assisted liposuction. Power assisted liposuction uses a specialized cannula with a vibrating tip that quickly and safely liquefies fat cells and gently remove them from the body. The power assisted liposuction procedure requires less time than traditional liposuction procedures and results in less post-operative discomfort and a more rapid recovery time. Before and after photos of our liposuction patients are available for viewing in our photo gallery.
