Removing Unwanted Fat in Your Lunch Hour

Removing Unwanted Fat in Your Lunch HourUtilizing the new Vaser lipo technology, Shu Cosmetic Surgery in Minneapolis is providing patients with an effective and affordable liposuction procedure in which patients can walk in and walk out within an hour.

Dr. Steven Shu says, “My approach is so minimally invasive that the patient remains awake during the liposuction and can even return to normal activities immediately, so I nicknamed it ‘Lunch Break Lipo. Our lipo technologies and techniques are much safer and more precise than traditional ones.”

The Lunch Break Lipo usually takes 30 to 45 minutes to complete. The lipo area is given local tumescent anesthesia, but no general anesthesia or intravenous or oral sedation. The patients can may return to normal activities immediately. The Lunch Break Lipo is limited to one area. If the patients need the liposuction in more than two areas, or the abdomen or on a large area, then oral or intravenous sedation will be given.
