The Liposuction Guide
Diet and exercise alone are sometimes not enough to achieve that perfect body that our candidates want more than anything. We are here to help with that little bit extra.
Liposuction has become easier, faster and more effective through new techniques like Laser Lipo and Smart Lipo. Laser treatments allow us to melt fat before suctioning it, and offer you the body you want with little bruising or bleeding.
Liposuction healing times are at an all-time low.
Good candidates for liposuction vary
Consult with a doctor to see if liposuction is right for you.
Clients who are the best fit for liposuction generally have large areas of excess fatty tissue that need to be removed.
If you are healthy and have excessive fat in areas that affect your appearance or make your body seem disproportionate, this procedure may be a good option for you. Consulting with one of the doctors here is a pre-requisite to any surgical or non-surgical treatment.
If you approach this type of procedure realistically, seeing the change you want is always possible.
The science behind liposuction
Some fat cells in the body are resistant to conventional fat loss techniques. These pockets of fat develop in places that the body has a hard time targeting through diet and exercise alone.
Where your body stores stubborn fat is a matter of heredity. For some, it’s under the navel, while for others it produces love handles or saddlebags. No matter where this resistant fat collects, there are remedies.
The best liposuction treatments in the world
CCI defines the cutting edge in cosmetic science. With our cosmetic procedures in the area of Liposuction, CoolSculpting, and body contouring, we can help you look and feel your best.
Smart Lipo, Laser Lipo, Body Jet Lipo, and Power Assisted Lipo are new offerings that yield incredible results. We have them all.
Smart Lipo AKA Laser Lipo
Laser-assisted liposuction – aka SmartLipo or Laser Lipo – uses a laser to melt fat with heat energy and allows suction through a small hose, making removal much easier.
The laser lipo technique causes less bleeding and bruising of the surrounding tissue. The liquefied fat is much easier to suction and the body lets go of it with less resistance.
Body Jet Lipo
Body Jet lipo is similar in many ways to laser-assisted liposuction. Body Jet utilizes a high-pressure water jet to loosen fat cells before they are removed. This technique is also commonly referred to as “water lipo.”
This non-invasive treatment uses the power of water instead of a laser to target fat. Just like traditional liposuction, the fat is removed, but with much less bruising or swelling in the area surrounding the removal site, and offers you a significantly shorter recovering period.
Power Assisted Lipo
Power assisted liposuction uses fast rotations or probing to manually destroy fat. Using a motor or compressed air the fat is broken away for easier removal.
Tummy Tucks in the Midwest
As this procedure also tightens the muscles in your abdominal wall, it’s a benefit if you have tried unsuccessfully to change the appearance of this trouble spot through exercise.
The tummy tuck is popular for people who have lost weight and have loose skin, or women who have recently had children.
Experience is a big difference
We offer you doctors and staff that are the most experienced in a wide range of surgical and non-invasive treatments. We can help you see the results you want. Whether you are seeking peels in the medical spa or something more serious, we offer the best results in the Midwest.
Reasons for a tummy tuck
By heredity, many people store fat in the lower abdominal area. No amount of exercise or dieting will change the shape of this area. Others see stretch marks, skin folds, excessive skin, or loose muscle tissue in this area.
Trouble spots such as this can diminish your self-confidence, but a tummy tuck can change the appearance of the abdominal smoothing and tightening the area.
Cellulite is a common problem. It has the habit of developing in the places where you least expect it. The breasts, the thighs, or back of the calves are all parts of the body where we see cellulite
The Trouble with Cellulite
Diet and exercise are not going to make this subcutaneous fatty tissue go away. Caused by a combination of factors that include specific hormones this problem is a matter of genetic predisposition. Our professional staff is familiar with this problem and the ways to successfully treat it. We can offer solutions for trouble areas which are safe and effective.
A New Cellulite Treatment
One treatment we can discuss with you is Cellulaze. This new treatment addresses the problem at its origin. The procedure centers on the fibrous tissue that’s causing the bumps and dimpling on the skin’s surface. Our qualified doctors use a minimally invasive laser to fatty tissue and then smooth out the skin. The fact that’s released is then pushed out by pressure on the surface of the skin. One of the benefits of this procedure is that it promotes new collagen, giving your skin a natural, firmer appearance. This also diminishes the chances of cellulite developing in this area again. Effective and long lasting this is an option we can discuss with you during a private consultation.
Body lift procedures
Buttock “Butt” Lifts
The Brazilian butt lift uses fat-relocation to move fatty tissue from less desirable areas into the buttocks, giving your body a more curvy shape.
Liposuction is performed to remove fat from other areas of the body such as the stomach, hips, and thighs. The fat is then injected into the butt. It brings a rounder, fuller profile to your backside.
Additional lipo is sometimes done around the butt to improve the appearance of lift and contour.
Drooping and sagging skin on the upper arms is hard to control without surgery. This lift procedure removes the excess skin and fat from these areas, bringing the arms back to a more youthful appearance.
Thigh Lift surgery reduces the excess skin in the area of the thigh, giving it a smooth, firm look. Body contouring is often necessary after weight loss. The face, breasts, abdomen, buttocks, thighs and arms can all have a lift or liposuction procedure at the same time shaping the body for a natural, healthy appearance.
Post Weight Loss Body Lifts
The body lift doesn’t remove the excess fat, but it does remove the sagging fat and skin around the areas where folds can develop. The buttocks, groin, thighs, and abdomen will develop sags and folds as you experience changes in muscle tone or weight. The lift is often done at the same time as liposuction.
Stretch Mark Removal
Removing stretch marks more easily, without downtime
Your Personal Stretch Mark Removal Options
It doesn’t matter how they developed stretch marks are hard to live with and have an impact on how you feel about your body. Pregnancy is the most common reason these form, but stretch marks can also become a problem after weight loss, or in some cases because of genetic factors. Both men and women can see these deep grooves or light puckered marks on the skin develop. There are several treatment options available to lessen or remove these from the stomach, breasts, upper arms, thighs, or hips, and restore a natural smooth appearance to the skin.
How do stretch marks happen?
Usually, striae or stretch marks will show up as a vertical strip of recessed skin. These usually start out as deep red or purple and fade over time, but can leave the skin with a puckered, irregular appearance. The puckered area is uneven and ridge-like, making it look much like a scar. These marks develop when the collagen in the skin breaks down or stretches beyond the point it can return to a normal smooth shape. Hormones such as glucocorticoids work against those who are pregnant or who undergo long periods of weight gain or loss. These hormone levels increase the risk of collagen breakdown underneath the skin.
Stretch marks removal in North Center Chicago
Only a few types of stretch marks are helped with creams or other similar remedies. Deeper marks with ridges and grooves within this skin will need treatment such as dermabrasion and laser treatments. Often for the most natural and smooth effect possible this treatment will need to be spaced out over time.
Our professional staff can also offer other methods of stretch mark removal such as a tummy tuck. The tummy tuck can permanently remove stretch marks below the navel quickly, and also remove excess skins that can cause deep folds.
