PureLipo™ Body Sculpting for Both Men and Women

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction at its best is about targeting areas of genetic disproportion and balancing a body. It is about focusing on stubborn areas of fat that are not responsive to diet and exercise. Currently, liposuction is the most common cosmetic surgery in the U.S. It is unfortunate that it also has a high revision rate, nearly 25% nationwide. Getting a consistently good result is much more difficult that both patients, and sadly, a large number of physicians realize. It is very important not only to have a skilled, highly trained physician performing the procedure, the physician must also have an excellent eye for aesthetics to determine where the disproportion or area "out of balance" is located. Removing fat from the wrong place will cause further unbalance, which is why one might hear that "the fat went to other places on my body".

How is PureLipo™ BodySculpture performed?

Liposuction can be performed either under general anesthesia or under local anesthesia, which is called the "tumescent technique". In the tumescent technique, the areas where fat will be removed are filled with large volumes of a special solution before the lipo procedure. This solution completely numbs the area and constricts the blood vessels, reducing bleeding to negligible amounts. Fatty deposits are then removed using small strawlike tubes called "cannulas" connected to suction or a large syringe. PureLipo™ BodySculpture is a syringe liposuction technique and is based on the work of masters like Gasparotti and Fournier. This is the ONLY liposuction technique that can be used on patients who are overweight, and many overweight diabetic and hypertensive patients are able to discontinue or decrease their medications following this procedure.

I strongly believe that local anesthesia, the tumescent technique, is the gold standard for liposuction. First, it avoids the risks associated with general anesthesia, ranging from excessive bruising, damage to muscles, to life-threatening complications like pulmonary emboli (blood clot in the lungs). Second, the recovery time is less, with less post-operative discomfort, using tumescent technique. Lastly, and important to consistently providing outstanding results, it allows optimal positioning of the patient for the area being worked on.

Why is it BodySculpture and not just Liposuction?

PureLipo™ BodySculpture uses the tumescent technique for precisely these reasons. In this technique, we also use very low pressure syringe liposuction. This avoids the pitfalls of high vaccuum pressures which lead to contour irregularities and can lead to skin necrosis. Fat is actually surrounded by a complicated connective tissue matrix, and it is not simply "sucked out" from the body. It is also found in many layers from deep to superficial, and balancing the amount taken from each layer and taking into account the skin tone and texture are very important. That is the reason I prefer the term "liposculpture", or more accurately "bodysculpture", to the term "liposuction".

Understanding these principles is the essence of PureLipo™ BodySculpture, which allows the physician to artistically "sculpt" the body. The extended training for this technique, the most intensive of any liposuction training program, produces consistently excellent results. Because of this, I am able to avoid the mistakes less trained physicians might make, including poor technique, being either too aggressive or too conservative, uneven contours (especially poor blending at transition areas), and aesthetically unappealing incision points. More importantly, we restore the balance to the body and the proportions that are optimal for the patient (which can vary widely). I very much view this as art, and approach each person as being a unique canvass. I imagine bringing out the beauty that nature or genetics has temporarily hidden.

Is there anything else special about PureLipo™ BodySculpture?

PureLipo™ BodySculpture, because of its low pressure, causes minimal damage to the fat cells harvested. This allows us to utilize this fat for transfer with an excellent viability (survivability), and also allows us to harvest stem cells from the fat. This means that we can provide superior results for Brazilian Butt Lifts (fat transfer to the buttocks), BreastPure Natural breast augmentation (stem cell augmented fat transfer to the breasts), natural breast reconstruction following mastectomy, and a new paradigm in facelifts, utilizing stem cell augmented fat transfer to the face to restore the volume that has been lost.

What areas can PureLipo™ BodySculpture be performed on?

Multiple areas can be treated during the same session, all with the precision and artistry that Dr. Johnson brings to the PureLipo™ Technique for his patients, including:

Abdominal (Tummy) Liposuction: Whether you are 300 pounds or 130 pounds, PureLipo™ at Nouveau Jeunesse will improve your physique with unparalled skin tightening! Before you consider having a "Tummy Tuck" or Abdominoplasty, with the long recovery time, the large expense and the even larger scarring, come in for a free consultation with Dr. Johnson to see if PureLipo™ can work for you instead.

Arm Liposuction: Upper arms can safely and effectively have fat removed with expectation of good to excellent skin tightening, eliminating the need for arm lift surgery (Brachioplasty).

Back Liposuction: All areas of your back can be worked with exceptional results, including lower back, upper and lower bra fat deposits, and anterior braline fat

Buttocks Augmentation (Brazilian Butt Lift): Sculpting a round superior buttocks while removing the fat from the lower back and love-handles gives an incredible lift to the buttocks, and can be augmented further by fat injections. We will expertly transfer your own fat to help sculpt that round, full bottom you desire!

Gynecomastia Treatment (Male Breast Reduction): Embarrassing breast development or fullness in males can be expertly removed with results that will make you feel proud to take your shirt off again!

Knee Liposuction: The medial area of the knees can be worked with expectation of excellent results, and make wearing shorts something you will want to do again!

Leg (Thigh) Liposuction: The thigh can be one of the most difficult areas to perform liposculpture, since it contains several different areas of fat and skin contractility. Dr. Johnson has performed numerous liposculpting procedures on the thighs and can provide the expert care you need!

Calf Liposuction: Very few places offer liposuction of the calves, a difficult and infrequently performed technique. At Nouveau Jeunesse, we offer not only the most experience with sculpting the calf area, but also the counseling needed to anticipate the healing process.

Neck Liposuction: Get rid of that Turkey neck and get wonderful skin tightening! We often surgically tighten the muscles of the neck, called platysmaplasty, to get great permanent results.

Liposuction for Men: Men, not only will we get rid of the fat rolls on your lower abdomen and flanks, we can expertly enhance the abdominal musculature to show off that 6-pack, and sculpt the chest area to show off defined pecs that you have worked so hard for at the gym!
