Imagine undergoing surgical liposuction, in an in-office environment while awake!
Dr. Huertas provides an entirely unique liposuction experience, taking patient comfort and safety to the next level of clinical excellence.
Liposuction is a surgical technique that improves the body’s contour by removing excess fat from fatty deposits located between the skin and muscle. Body sculpturing by liposuction is literally a dream come true. Localized accumulations of fat, which are often hereditary and frequently impossible to eliminate by exercise or dieting, can now be removed permanently by liposuction surgery, never to plague you again.
Liposuction involves the use of a small stainless steel tube called a cannula. Connected at one end to a specialized suction pump, the cannula is inserted through a tiny skin incisions. The removal of fat is accomplished as the suction cannula creates tiny tunnels through the fatty layers. After surgery, these tiny tunnels collapse, resulting in an improved body contour.
The vibration and movement of the cannula acts as a pain blocker in the same way that scratching relieves an itch. The movement of the cannula enables it to glide through fatty tissue while delivering local anesthesia and removing fat with little or no pain. The cannula is also able to maneuver through fibrous or tougher areas for better body sculpting, less surgery time, less bruising and less recovery time.

- Patient safety
- Permanent removal of fat cells
- Quick recovery period
- Look great immediately
- Superior body sculpting
The lipo technology used by Dr. Huertas does not generate heat and has a safety feature which shuts off the system if non-fatty tissue is encountered. The infrasonic energy used to break up the fatty tissue ensures minimal damage to the fat and surrounding tissue. This leaves healthy tissue in place for better skin retraction.
Before the procedure you will discuss with your doctor the areas to be treated, contraindications, pre-existing conditions and pain tolerance.
This treatment is a minimally invasive procedure which takes 1 to 2 hours. Through tiny incisions, numbing tumescent fluid is infused using a vibrating cannula. Once numb, your doctor will use a vibrating suction cannula specially designed for the area of your body being worked on for body sculpting and fat removal.
