What to Expect During the Procedure
In most cases, Dr. Shuster performs liposuction as an outpatient procedure in the comfort and safety of Memorial Regional Hospital South. Liposuction is minimally invasive and can be performed in conjunction with other procedures.
Near the treatment area, Dr. Shuster will make small incisions. Using these incisions, he will insert a cannula to administer a tumescent solution that is made of lidocaine and epinephrine, numbing the area and reducing the likelihood of bruising and bleeding.
A cannula is a long thin tube connected to a high-suction machine. It will be inserted into the incisions, where it will loosen the fat before removing it. There will be some mild pain and discomfort in the days following the procedure. This will be well-controlled with pain medications as needed. Your comfort is important to us.
The technologies that Dr. Shuster uses have made liposuction in Fort Lauderdale a much safer and more comfortable procedure, improving accuracy, reducing recovery, and decreasing discomfort.
