At Luxe Plastic Surgery, Dr. Malik Kutty makes patient safety his number one priority for any cosmetic treatment. He takes pride in offering patients the latest technology when it comes to liposuction and other procedures.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), liposuction was the most popular cosmetic surgery in 2015. Last year, over 396,000 patients underwent this procedure – a 16% increase from the year before.
ASAPS partially attributed the increase in liposuction treatments to the emergence of new innovative technologies. Several companies around the country are currently experimenting with advanced technologies to design new tools that will allow patients to undergo quicker, less invasive liposuction procedures.
3D printing and imaging solutions make it possible to prototype tools that will help plastic surgeons analyze body structures such as muscles and underlying tissue before the patient's operation. If these prototypes succeed, targeted liposuction will be possible without cutting through the skin, increasing the precision of this already accurate procedure. With these new tools and imaging solutions, doctors will also be able to mathematically calculate and predict the amount of excess skin left behind after fat extraction, ultimately yielding incredibly natural looking results.
Companies expect to commence clinical testing of these cutting-edge liposuction surgical instruments within the next year.
Although these advancements are on the horizon, liposuction continues to be a safe procedure that delivers amazing and precise outcomes. With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Kutty knows the importance of delivering the results you want to achieve in a safe and calculated manner.
Dr. Kutty will meet with you in person to discuss your aesthetic goals and needs. During your initial consultation, he will design a treatment plan, which will include discussions about the liposuction technique that will deliver the results you want to achieve. Dr. Kutty uses advanced technology like ultrasound and power assistance with a mechanized cannula to provide patients with the most extensive options to meet their body contouring goals.
