Appropriately performed by an expert, liposuction is a safe and unmatched way to rid the body of unwanted and stubborn fat deposits and achieve new body contours that may otherwise be unobtainable. The emphasis in selecting a liposuction surgeon with vast experience and various methods from which to choose is paramount. Unfortunately, too often, liposuction is being performed by physicians and nurses who are not board certified plastic surgeons in inappropriate settings, such as an office without proper safety and sterilization equipment. There are no shortcuts when it comes to getting the best results from your liposuction procedure. Remember, the best time to get the perfect results is the first time! Revision, or corrective surgeries to fix “bad lipo” jobs are difficult. Avoid corrective surgery and invest in a liposuction expert from the beginning.
Dr. Nicholas Sieveking, since starting Sieveking Plastic Surgery, Cosmetic Laser and Skin Care in 2000, has established himself as the premiere board certified plastic surgeon for liposuction procedures. After completing his training in general surgery and plastic surgery at the world-renowned Stanford University Hospital, Dr. Sieveking moved to Brazil to study liposuction under two of the world’s leaders in the field – Ivo Pitanguy and Ewaldo Bolivar de Souza Pinto.
Employing techniques from his Brazilian training as well as investing in the most effective and state-of-the art technologies and equipment has allowed Dr. Nicholas Sieveking to achieve results in Nashville that are unparalleled. In 2003, he was the first to introduce VASER® LipoSelection to the Nashville area. Recently, he has upgraded his ultrasonic technology to the Lysonix® 3000 pulse generator. Despite using the most advanced, and expensive, liposuction equipment, Dr. Sieveking still believes the best and most natural results are achieved by using a combination of the latest technologies mixed with the traditional liposuction techniques. Every patient has different needs; and, different fat deposits throughout the body require customized treatment to maximize the thinning and contouring effects.
In his expert opinion, Dr. Sieveking cautions patients to stay away from the fad of in-office laser liposuction. The technique is incomplete and uses laser/thermal energy to destroy fat cells. Consequently, the laser energy damages structures such as skin and nerves that can leave permanent and unwanted results. It is also a myth that these laser machines can tighten the skin more so than the traditional and ultrasonic techniques employed by Dr. Sieveking.
