Xpress Liposuction, located in Fort Myers, Florida, is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure. It effectively removes excess fat from specific areas of the body to yield natural-looking body contouring results, all while the patient remains awake. The whole treatment takes only a few hours as an outpatient procedure without requiring admission to the hospital. Xpress Liposuction is Dr. Giselle’s signature procedure, and it is performed in the office without general anesthesia. As a result, patients remain fully awake during the procedure and only require local anesthesia. This cosmetic surgery is designed to speed up recovery time and reduce downtime. Exert Clinic in Florida offers personalized Xpress Liposuction treatment options for those who struggle to lose stubborn fat, which is unresponsive to diet and exercise.
Liposuction Before & After
What Is Xpress Liposuction and What Happens During the Procedure?
Liposuction, also called Lipo, removes stubborn fat in any specific body area and is generally covered in different steps.
Pronox | Reduce discomfort
Pro-Nox utilizes a mixture of inhaled oxygen and nitrous oxide to provide fast-acting pain relief. With Pro-Nox, patients can remain awake and alert during the procedure while experiencing minimal discomfort. It even allows patients to take pain management in their own hands as the gases are released when the patient inhales. Patients can control how much nitrous oxide they need because pain tolerance can differ from person to person. With this, it eliminates the need for general anesthesia. During the use of Pro-Nox, the patient’s central nervous system slows down in terms of responsiveness and allows for the natural enhancement of other pain medications, and helps provide a more comfortable experience for the patient.
One of the benefits of using the Pro-Nox system is that it does not put the patient “to sleep” as general anesthesia does, which means that communication between the patient and staff can provide consistent feedback to manage comfort levels throughout the procedure.
Tumescent liposuction | Local anesthesia
Dr. Giselle uses tumescent liposuction; the local anesthesia present in the tumescent solution helps to numb the targeted area. Unlike traditional liposuction florida techniques, tumescent liposuction removes fat cells easily, making them swollen and firm. It also allows the surgeon to communicate with the patient throughout the liposuction surgery as they are awake.
The use of the tumescent technique allows patients to return home soon after the procedure is completed and helps reduce bleeding and swelling during the procedure, which can help speed up the recovery process.
This step helps removes excess fat by detaching and aspirating the fat tissue. Next, a slight force is applied to remove unwanted fat through a cannula or probe designed for this purpose. Following the second step, the excess fat becomes loose and disconnected. It is then vacuumed out in a container.
DID YOU KNOW RENUVION SKIN TIGHTENING IS INCLUDED IN XPRESS LIPO?
Adding to it is the Renuvion Skin Tightening treatment, done simultaneously to eliminate sagging skin or tighten loose skin that may occur after fat removal. Renuvion skin tightening is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that combines helium plasma and radiofrequency (RF) energy.
Renuvion energy is applied underneath the skin during the procedure, heating the collagen and other structures to the temperatures required for optimal tissue contraction. This heating process is fast, and the tissue is immediately cooled. Renuvion skin tightening can be added to various areas, including arms, abdomen, back, etc.
Add-ons to Xpress Liposuction FLORIDA Surgery
Fat transfer, or also known as fat grafting, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that entails removing excess fat cells from one area of the body via liposuction and transferring it to another body area to enhance volume and sculpt the body shape. For example, the excess fat cells can be transferred to the buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift) or breasts to improve body contours. During the liposuction procedure, the fat is removed, then processed and purified before being re-injected into the desired area of the body. Fat transfer as an add-on for liposuction can provide several benefits. First, it allows for more precise body contouring, as the surgeon can use the removed fat for other procedures that fill in areas of the body lacking volume or definition.

What is the Cost of Xpress liposuction in Fort Myers, FL?
The expenses of liposuction procedures are subject to variations based on the medications used, surgical equipment needed, and anesthesia, among other factors. The average cost of liposuction in Fort Myers, FL, is around $3500, but it may fluctuate from $1000 to $20,000.

What Happens Before an Xpress Liposuction Procedure?
Receiving cosmetic surgery, like a liposuction procedure, starts with an initial visit to our surgeon, Dr. Giselle. During this visit, we will gather information about the patient’s medical history, previous surgical procedures, and allergies and conduct a physical examination. Then a customized treatment plan will be created that considers the patient’s goals and health requirements.
The Date and Time
Mark The Selected Body Part
Once the pre-operative requirements are met, Dr. Giselle will mark the selected body part for the liposuction procedure and take photographs for record-keeping and to monitor results.
What Is the Recovery Process Like for Xpress Liposuction?
Once the liposuction procedure is complete, the patient will be instructed to wear their compression garment. Compression garments are necessary to reduce swelling, prevent sagging skin, and put pressure on the wounds. Most of the time, the patient is allowed to drink water or something to eat. The patient is counseled about the care of wounds, how to regulate the compression garments, any medications that need to be continued, and when to return to the clinic. After the liposuction surgery, patients will be able to go back homes and can return to their normal routine in two to three days.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
The Xpress Liposuction procedure uses pain medications and the Pro-Nox system, meaning no pain is felt during the fat removal procedure. Pain medications are prescribed to manage pain and discomfort after the liposuction surgery.
No, liposuction only removes unwanted fat, making the body look proportionate. It cannot help reduce cellulite, an inflammatory process, or other issues like skin laxity or stretch marks. Renuvion can be added to liposuction to address skin concerns.
The results are visible as soon as the procedure is done, even after the first session. However, it may take some time for the swelling to subside and for the results to develop fully.
The final liposuction results can typically be seen within three to six months after the procedure. This timeline allows swelling and bruising to subside, revealing the body’s new contours. However, individual healing processes and the extent of fat removal may cause this duration to vary.
Fat cells can return after liposuction procedures if the patient does not maintain a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise.
The outcome of liposuction can be long-lasting, but they are temporary. The longevity of the results may depend on several factors, including the patient’s genetics, age, and lifestyle habits. Generally, if patients maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen, they can expect the results to last for many years. In addition, adding Renuvion skin tightening can be beneficial to have the liposuction results last longer.
Liposuction is not designed as a weight loss procedure but as body contouring. Liposuction removes stubborn fat pockets and is a body-sculpting treatment without worrying about extensive healing time. The amount of fat removed during liposuction varies based on each patient and the areas treated.
