Baltimore Liposuction with Dr. Kane

Dr. Kane uses two state-of-the-art liposuction techniques. Both involve a small incision in the area to be treated. Next, a thin, hollow tube called a cannula is inserted into the incision and fat cells are vacuumed out and discarded. Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis in our own private fully accredited surgery center under twilight sedation and can last two or more hours.

Baltimore patients undergo tumescent liposuction when large amounts of fat need to be removed. In this procedure, considered to be extremely safe, a salt-water solution (saline) is injected into the fat to make it easier to remove with the cannula.

Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) is one of the newest types of liposuction available today. Like the tumescent method offered by Dr. Kane in Baltimore, Maryland, ultrasonic liposuction allows for the removal of excess fat cells from problem areas on the body. However, this procedure is slightly different because it incorporates ultrasonic energy (sound waves) and saline injections to allow for maximum fat removal. The sound waves are emitted from the tip of the cannula, liquefying the fat and allowing for easier extraction. This method can result in less skin dimpling and puckering.

Liposuction Recovery

operatingroomOf all the surgeries Dr. Dean Kane performs in his Baltimore Maryland Center for Cosmetic Surgery and Medi-Spa, Liposuction is one of the easiest to recover from. It is hard to hurt the results of liposuction. As long as the patients follow Dr. Kane’s post-operative instructions and wear their special liposuction garment for 6-8 weeks 24 hours a day. The time off from work will depend on the extensive volume of fat that has been removed by Dr. Kane. If patients have liposuction of one to two areas only like just liposuction of the arms or just the inner and outer thighs or just the abdomen and love handles, patients feel good enough to return to work within 4-5 days.


What Happens If I’m Getting Multiple Liposuction Surgeries?

If multiple areas of liposuction are performed at the same time, like liposuction of the abdomen, back and inner and outer thighs then patients may need a little more time off from returning to their usual routines, but still not much more than 7-10 days. The amount of fat removed is also a factor, but if the procedure is performed in the private setting of Dr. Dean Kane’s fully accredited operating room than only 5 liters of fat is permitted medically safe and most patients can go back to work within the 5-7 day period. To give patients an understanding of what 1 liter is, image a quart of milk as being a liter of fat. Now image taking 5 quarts of fat out of the body!!! That’s a lot of fat that can be removed. Dr. Kane can reshape the body into a new body and allow a patient to reduce in multiple sizes. If however, patients want larger amounts of fat removed from 5-10 liters or more in multiple areas, these liposuction procedures would need to be performed in a hospital setting with an overnight stay.

Why Diet And Exercise Is Important After Your Liposuction

Dr. Kane believes in the South Beach type diet which is high protein, low fat, low carbohydrates, minimal to no sweets, no regular sodas and no snacking on chips, etc. He encourages his patients to exercise regularly increasing their cardiac output into an aerobic form of exercise daily. Without this change in lifestyle, both in diet and exercise all the fat will return back to the body in other places with a vengeance. Often fat returns inside the internal belly in which the fat surrounding the internal organs of the heart, intestines, kidneys where liposuction procedure cannot reach. This is a seriously dangerous fat that can cause people to have heart disease. The bottom line if anyone wants to consider liposuction with Dr. Dean Kane, it is not a weight-loss procedure. It is a body contouring procedure that requires a commitment to a life long lifestyle change of a healthy diet and solid aerobic form of exercise. Dr. Dean Kane places his post-op care as important as the surgery itself. Dr. Kane always sees his patients the very next day after surgery to make sure the patient is progressing.
