Lunch Break Liposuction
Lunch Break Lipo is so minimally invasive that the patient remains awake during the liposuction and can even return to work when it is over. Our lipo technologies and techniques are much safer and more precise than the crude fat extraction in the past. The Vaser Lipo system uses focused ultrasound energy to selectively get rid of fat cells without affecting much of the surrounding veins, nerves, and tissue. This results in faster healing and less downtime. This is why Lunch break Lipo can be performed effectively and efficiently without any sedation.
Total Body Lipo
Although most patients typically focus on a few specific areas, it is becoming more popular to do a total body liposuction to achieve the desired results. Total Body Lipo is liposuction performed extensively across the body focusing in fat-deposited areas such as: the abdomen, lower back, upper arms, hips, inner thighs, knee and neck. It is done in 1-3 sessions, spaced at least 3 days apart. Total body liposuction is typically costs 20-40% less than having the areas done individually.
Dr. Shu is the first to introduce Vaser LipoSelection in Minneapolis and St. Paul. This advanced technique is similar to laser liposuction, but uses forced ultrasound energy to selectively dissolve fat cells without effecting the surrounding nerves and tissue. Vaser Lipo is very safe because the temperature is not as high as in laser technology. It is also very efficient to emulsify the fat in large areas. Dr. Shu usually uses Vaser technology for liposuction procedures, especially in larger areas such as the abdomen. Since the fat tissue is emulsified, not melted or damaged, the fat can be used for fat transfer in natural breast augmentation and Brazilian butt lift.
Laser liposuction offers a safe and minimally invasive way to reshape your body by using a laser that melts away unwanted areas of fat and tightens the skin. While laser liposuction is a very popular procedure, Dr. Shu generally reserves this procedure for smaller areas of the body such as the chin/neck and upper arms, or for skin tightening in combination with Body-Jet liposuction. For patients who want to target larger areas of fat with sculpted results, Vaser Lipo is suggested.
