As part of the anti-aging therapies offered at CIMA, Dr. Silva also offers Mesotherapy injection treatment for the elimination of cellulite and other stubborn fatty areas on your body. Mesotherapy is a medical technique that utilizes microinjections of medication and vitamins to deliver healing, as well as corrective treatment to very specific areas of the body. It is a very safe, non-invasive procedure that effectively reduces cellulite and rejuvenates your skin. In fact, it is a breakthrough treatment that has proven to be an effective alternative for liposuction.
For years, liposuction was deemed to be the best and safest treatment for this kind of procedure, however, there have been several health complications and even deaths associated with liposuction. Some of these complications include the following:
After receiving liposuction, a piece of loosened fat can potentially break away and make its way into your bloodstream. This loosened piece of fat may then travel and gather in your lungs or even your brain and cause a very serious problem. A fat embolism is a life-threatening complication and is treated as a medical emergency.
While an internal puncture very rarely occurs, it still a real possibility when it comes to liposuction. Liposuction involves the use of a cannula, which is a tube that is inserted into the body for the delivery or removal of fluid. During a liposuction procedure, this cannula may potentially be inserted too deep into the body and puncture an internal organ. If this occurs, a patient may require emergency surgery to repair the puncture wound.
Accumulation of Fluid
After having received a liposuction treatment, according to the Mayo Clinic, “temporary pockets of fluid [seromas] can form under the skin.” Eventually, these fluid pockets may need to be drained with a needle.
With potential health complications like these, why take a risk with liposuction. Mesotherapy injection treatment is a safer, non-threatening alternative. Call our anti-aging clinic today in Orlando today to schedule your consultation.
