Edina, MN, March 19, 2014 --( Shu Cosmetic Surgery is now offering Total Body Lipo - liposuction performed extensively across the body focusing on fat-deposited areas. New liposuction technologies have improved efficiency, patient safety, and reduce the recovery time; this makes total body liposuction possible in the ambulatory surgical facility.

Rationale for the Total Body Lipo Process is to improve patient safety by avoiding lidocaine toxicity. The liposuction is performed under the tumescent anesthesia with diluted Lidocaine. By spreading the procedures out, the total amount of Lidocaine can be reduced in each liposuction procedure. It also improves lipo experience by spreading the procedures out, surgeon can use more tumescent fluid in the sensitive areas without maximizing the dose of Lidocaine. It helps control pain, maximize fat removal, and facilitate recovery.

“It depends on the body size and amount of fat deposits; Total Body Lipo may need 1-3 sessions, spaced in 3-7 days apart. We often group abdomen, lower back, and hip together in the 1st lipo, and group neck, upper arm, inner thigh, knee and other areas in the 2nd lipo. Your body can be transformed in a week!” Dr. Shu Said. “Our lipo technologies and techniques are much safer and more precise than crude fat extraction from the past.”

Shu Cosmetic Surgery is the most comprehensive cosmetic treatment center for advanced liposuction in Minnesota, offering three advanced technologies: Vaser Liposuction, Laser Liposuction and AquaShape (Body Jet Lipo) – giving you the most options and targeted results. Dr. Shu started offering Vaser liposuction in 2009; it quickly became his favorite liposuction technology. The Vaser Lipo system uses focused ultrasound energy to selectively get rid of fat cells without affecting much of the surrounding veins, nerves, and tissue. This results in faster healing and less downtime. It also helps to tighten skin.

The Total Body Lipo can be performed effectively and efficiently under intravenous or oral sedation and local tumescent anesthesia, it usually takes 2 hours to finish the liposuction in each session. Total body liposuction is typically costs 20-40% less than having them done individually.
