Body Sculpting & Liposuction Q & A

What is body sculpting?

Body sculpting is a procedure that uses liposuction technology to remove excess fat from specific areas of your body. By eliminating this fat, Dr. Giuffrida at Turner Medical Arts slims down and contours your body to ensure your natural curves are well-balanced.

Dr. Giuffrida offers both traditional liposuction techniques for body sculpting and uses the VASER lipo technology to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat without major surgery. He also specializes in Brazilian butt lifts and fat transfers to enhance your figure.

How does VASER lipo technology work?

The VASER lipo procedure uses ultrasound waves to break up fat deposits under the skin. Dr. Giuffrida first injects a saline solution into the treatment area before applying a probe to the skin’s surface to deliver the ultrasound energy.

As the fat breaks down, Dr. Giuffrida suctions it out through a slender tube. The technique only addresses the unwanted areas of fat you want to eliminate, leaving the other surrounding tissue unharmed.

The VASER lipo technology can also enhance the appearance of your muscles beneath the fat, giving you a more sculpted, contoured look. Many men enjoy the chiseled results of this specialized procedure.

VASER lipo is a minimally invasive procedure that requires only a local anesthetic. You can expect to go back to work and your usual routine the day after treatment.

What is a Brazilian butt lift?

A Brazilian butt lift is a fat transfer procedure that uses your fat to enhance the size and shape of your backside. Dr. Giuffrida removes unwanted fat from another area of your body, usually your love handles or belly, using liposuction technology.

This fat gets transferred into areas of your buttocks that need additional volume or shape improvements. Using a small syringe, Dr. Giuffrida reinjects fat with the highest level of precision to ensure optimal results.

Fat transfer techniques are also available to enhance other areas of your body that lack volume, including your breasts and face.

Am I a good candidate for body sculpting or liposuction?

To determine if body sculpting, liposuction, or other cosmetic enhancement procedures are right for you, Dr. Giuffrida reviews your medical history and discusses your expectations for treatment when you visit Turner Medical Arts.

As a skilled and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Giuffrida has the experience to ensure natural-looking results that highlight your existing curves and contours and leave you more than happy with your results.
