Liposuction remains one of the most accepted and popular aesthetic procedures in this country. Liposculpturing implies a three-dimensional removal of fat for a profiled look that blends in with your entire body shape. Dr. Sasaki believes an optimal result from liposuction depends on the amount of sculptured fat that remains rather than the quantity of fat removed. In most cases, the overlying skin conforms to the remaining fatty layer. In certain circumstances, however, skin folds develop as a result of loose skin that is unable to tighten after liposuction.

There are a number of techniques essential to perform a successful liposuction. Traditional liposuction simply passes a hollow tube (cannula) back and forth under negative pressure to remove fat cells. Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) also removes fat by passing a mechanically moving hollow cannula back and forth under negative pressure to sculpt the fatty layers. The doctor reduces irregularities that can occur with liposuction with a special basket-shaped cannula that breaks up collection of fat to smooth out the suctioned sites without removing the fat. Dr. Sasaki has utilized all these liposuction devices to remove successfully unwanted fat from specific areas of the cheek and neck, breasts, upper arms, abdomen, back rolls, buttocks, thighs, knees and ankles.
