Liposuction has come a long way over the last 2 decades, and can now be done under local anesthesia. Unwanted fat is gently removed from stubborn areas, using tiny vibrating cannulas. The body can be contoured as well, accentuating natural curves at the waist, hips and buttocks. When combined with fat transfer, the results can be truly remarkable.
POWER ASSISTED LIPOSUCTION (PAL)
Power Assisted Liposuction uses a reciprocating motion, to facilitate the movement of the cannula within tissue. The patients often feel this as a vibration. This innovation reduces the amount of manual force and physical effort required to perform liposuction, especially in areas with dense fibrous tissue. The result is a more comfortable experience for the surgeon and the patient, as well as more precise removal of fat, and creation of the body’s natural curves.
LASER OR VASER LIPOSUCTION
Both these technologies use heat to liquefy the fat before removing it. The heat from these sources are known to cause additional skin tightening.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Most procedures can be performed under local anesthesia with a 2 day recovery. Larger procedures may require general anesthesia for the patient's comfort. Patients generally have these procedures on Thursday or Friday and can return to work by Monday. A compression garment is provided and worn after the procedure for 4-6 weeks. Velashape III treatments are available postoperatively to help with healing and smoothen out the results while healing is occurring.
LIPOSUCTION CAN TREAT THE FOLLOWING PARTS:
Upper & Lower Abdomen, Love Handles, Waist, Bra Rolls, Mons (Pubic area), Arms, Hips, Outer thighs, Upper Inner Thighs, Lower Inner Thighs, Calves, Ankles, Fat Pad under arms, Male Chest, Gynecomastia.
FAT TRANSFER CAN BE DONE TO THE FOLLOWING PARTS:

WHY CHOOSE DR. MEHTA FOR BODY CONTOURING
When deciding to undergo a body contouring procedure, choosing the right surgeon is probably the most important part of the process. You should know that Dr. Mehta has performed around 1000 liposuction and fat transfer procedures in the last several years. This is drastically more than most. The reason is that when it comes to cosmetic surgery, Dr. Mehta’s focus is on liposuction, fat transfer and tummy-tucks procedures only. Performing these procedures well demands an artistic eye and an overwhelming desire by the surgeon to consistently produce excellent results.
Dr. Mehta is known for having an artistic trait. As a young boy, this ability was always noticed by family, friends, and teachers. In high school, he received recognition for this talent and was given the Best Artist Award. Although many expected him to pursue a career as an artist, he decided to pursue a career as a surgeon. Decades later, he has moved on from sculpting clay to sculpting people!
Additionally, he is in the forefront of doing many of these procedures in the safest manner under local anesthesia, thereby increasing safety while decreasing cost for the patients.
