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. That’s precisely the reason we use 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. Dr. Roche uses all modalities available to achieve the best overall result for his patients, Tumescent Liposuction, SmartLipo, UltraSonic Liposuction, Power-Assisted Liposuction and Suction Assisted Liposuction, as well as the Erchonia Scanner.
Tumescent Liposuction is a method of infiltrating the desired area with tumescence that contains local anesthetic for numbing the area, epinephrine for vassal constriction. It also causes turger in the area which aids in the suction process later. Learn More
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. Learn More
UltraSonic Liposuction is another energy that liquefies the fat. This is the first modality that suctions the fat out of the body. The UltraSonic energy also stimulates the collagen fibers for tightening the skin. The energy stays with the body for a time after surgery, continuing to tighten. The UltraSonic energy provides the greatest help in the sculpting and etching component for muscle definition. Learn More
Power-Assisted Liposuction uses an electric handpiece that gently vibrates while suction the fat from the desired areas. This does the largest job of removal of fat from the body.
Suction Assisted Liposuction uses vacuum suction to do the final clean up in the liposuction areas. Dr. Roche uses multiple cannula sizes to achieve the final sculpted and etched result.
The entire time the surgery is being performed the Erchonia scanner is circulating over the surgical areas. The scanner aids in softening the tissue/fat so extraction is easier on the body. The scanner settings also help with pain, bruising and swelling post-surgery. So the patient is more comfortable after surgery.
