Liposuction currently ranks as the number one cosmetic surgery procedure in the US in terms of popularity. Innovations in liposuction techniques have made the procedure less invasive and more targeted. Best results with liposuction can be achieved when the patient chooses a highly trained and experienced liposuction surgeon.
Dr. Bryson Richards is an award-winning plastic surgeon providing liposuction and several other advanced procedures of the breast, body, and face. He combines the principles of art and science to produce desirable, sustainable and natural looking contours with liposuction. Dr. Richards receives patients from Las Vegas NV and surrounding communities.
According to Dr. Richards, the optimal results in a plastic surgery procedure such as liposuction can be achieved when the surgeon tailors the procedure to meet the unique anatomical needs and personal aesthetic goals of the patient. Liposuction surgery allows scope for customization, which is one of the key reasons behind its wide acceptance as the procedure of choice.
Wherever possible, Dr. Richards will adopt the tumescent liposuction technique, which can avoid the need for general anesthesia. He may also combine technologies such as laser or ultrasound to ensure that more precise results can be obtained in a less invasive way. Pain, downtime and risk of complications is reduced when customized liposuction techniques are applied in accordance with the patient’s individual needs.
