Our client, J had planned for the procedure since early this year but so fearful was she of the pain, she postponed it a few times. After reassurance from me and explaining as well as clearing up her fears, she finally decided to proceed with her Airsculpting for her tummy pooch last week.
It turned out to be a fun session for both of us.
J arrived on time and after going through again the areas that she wanted to have treated, we prepared her.
Once she was comfortable on the treatment table (fully awake and alert) , some meds for relaxing was given to her. Also an antibiotic injection as preventive measure.
The area was then cleansed with povidone, a liquid that is commonly used as an antiseptic on the skin to "sterilise" the skin surface against any potential microbials.
I then continued to drape the area with clean and sterile clothes in order to keep the area clean.
Little knicks (or stab wounds) were made on the skin at the entry sites. These knicks were used as entry site for the canula to deliver local anesthetic fluids which helps to numb the tissues as well as soften the fatty tissue. Once the local anesthetic was completely given, we left J to rest for 40min in order to allow time for the anesthetic to work.
1 hour later, I started by applying the airsculpt device which create twirling and swirling air to break the softened fat membrane and melt the fat to oil or soft buttery texture. At the same time the melted fat (lysate) is vacuumed or sucked back out through a low pressure vacuum. It is nice and yellow fat from here.
J was comforatble and she even managed a video of the the procedure as well as take pictures with me!
When we finished more then 1 Litre of melted fat (equivalent to 1.5-2 litres of solid fat) was out and her tummy was immediately flatter!
