Re-Shape Your Body
Liposuction is a commonly requested cosmetic surgery. Dr. Roche is one of the most experienced and accomplished liposuction surgeons in the Detroit area and uses Fat Transfer, advanced Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell technologies to achieve the best results with state-of-the-art equipment. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is a cosmetic surgery procedure for patients who wish to sculpt fat that is resistant to diet and exercise, often due to inherited genetic traits that prevent people from achieving their desired body shape. This is why liposuction, and/or liposculpture, is a popular procedure.
Many of us spend countless hours at the gym and go through frustrating diets in pursuit of physical perfection. Unfortunately, that perfection doesn’t come very easy for most. We feel like we’re spinning on a hamster wheel. Whether it is due to aging, genetics or other unidentified reasons, some people just aren’t able to shed that last stubborn layer of fat no matter how hard they try. Enter High Definition Liposuction.
This revolutionary procedure takes the idea of traditional liposuction and turns it into an art form. Using a thorough knowledge of the human anatomy, the Dr. Roche removes only select areas of fat deposits and/or depositing and leaves fat cells where more volume is desired. In essence, Dr. Roche can virtually “sculpt” your tissue to give you that chiseled look you’ve always wanted.
SmartLipo™ is laser-assisted liposuction in which patients often experience faster healing and tighter, firmer skin than with other forms of the treatment, even reducing cellulite and stretch marks. Traditional liposuction is meant to treat large areas of the body where fat deposits have become prevalent, whereas SmartLipo is ideal for treating small areas and is less invasive. SmartLipo is a laser assisted technology that melts the fat it comes in contact with for easier suction removal later. The SmartLipo laser also cauterizes the vessels, so bleed and bruising is kept to a minimum, stimulates the collagen fibers, so it instantly starts to shrink and smooth the skin. The laser energy assists in the etching of the “6 pack” when sculpting.
Dr. Roche has practiced tumescent liposuction for decades. In this procedure, he begins by inserting a cannula (a slim, hollow tube) into small incisions near the area to be recontoured. The cannula is moved through the layers of tissue and extracts the necessary fat. Several techniques exist. The tumescent technique injects fluid into the areas to be treated. It begins the process before extraction. In UAL (Ultrasound-Assisted Lipoplasty), a specially designed cannula liquefies the fat and suctions it away. Except in the most extreme cases, procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. Dr. Roche will suggest the most appropriate form of anesthesia (epidural block, intravenous sedation or a local or general anesthesia).
