This tumescent liposuction procedure offers fat reduction with less side effects and a lower cost than traditional lipo. With PureLipo™, there is no general anesthesia.

Using tumescent fluid rather than general anesthesia allows the procedure to be performed in-office. There is less downtime, no sutures, greater skin tightening, and usually a cost that is thousands of dollars less than common liposuction. Its is a great way to permanently remove fat…at a price you can afford and with the results you are looking for.

Benefits of PureLipo™
- The use of a very small cannula (tube-like instrument) to perform the procedure, coupled with smaller incisions, the doctor’s superior training, and the use of tumescent fluid, often allows for better body sculpting results than found with other forms of liposuction.
- PureLipo™ also offers greater skin tightening.
- With PureLipo™, the lack of general anesthesia in this in-office procedure allows for much less downtime. Typically, a patient will have the procedure done and be back to work and normal activities within a few days.
- There is typically less bruising and discomfort due to the use of the tumescent fluid and the small instruments used in the procedure.
- PureLipo™ is performed in-office under local anesthesia, resulting in a significantly lower cost than traditional liposuction. There is no need to pay for the pricey anesthesiologist and surgical center.
- Requiring only a local tumescent anesthetic, PureLipo™ is not associated with the risks of general anesthesia.
- No Sutures: This allows for a quicker recovery and the lack of scars caused by surgical incisions.
- PureLipo™ does not use a heated laser to remove the fat.
Frequently Asked Questions About PureLipo™
How does PureLipo™ work?
PureLipo™, also known as BodySculpting, is an advanced tumescent liposuction procedure performed without general anesthesia, using very small instruments to permanently remove excess fat from most areas of the body. It is called “tumescent” because the physician fills and swells the fatty areas to be removed with a special solution containing local anesthetic. The fat is then removed with straw-like tubes called cannulas, which are much smaller than those used in traditional liposuction. Because the tumescent solution completely anesthetizes the area, no general anesthesia or heavy sedation is required. The trained physician artistically sculpts the body into a new shape using these delicate instruments. The finer instruments allow the physician to target specific areas with increased accuracy and control.
How is PureLipo™ different?
PureLipo™ uses very small instruments and a more gentle suction process using a syringe. Also, the procedure delivers superior body contouring and promotes skin tightening for smoother results. As a result of the use of such small instruments, no stitches are used. Bruising and discomfort following the procedure are minimal, and most patients are able to return to normal activities within a few days. The entire procedure lasts only a few hours.
What is tumescent anesthesia?
The tumescent technique involves the injection of a diluted anesthetic fluid directly into the fat, causing the area to become swollen and firm. This technique eliminates the need for general anesthesia and the bleeding associated with traditional surgery. The tumescent technique results in a procedure that is safe and less painful, with minimal recovery time and typically better results.
What areas can be treated and how much fat can be removed?
Almost any area on the body where there is fat can be treated, removing the fat in a single session.
Is the procedure painful?
There is minimal discomfort during the initial administration of the tumescent solution. The procedure itself is basically painless. Post procedure bruising and discomfort is minimized due to the nature of the PureLipo™ procedure.
Is PureLipo™ permanent?
The body's shape and contour following PureLipo™ is permanent for the most part. Fat cells that are removed by PureLipo™ do not grow back. As long as you do not gain excessive weight, the shape and contour is permanent.
How did Dr. Bowen learn to perform PureLipo™?
Dr. Bowen went through the rigorous PureLipo™ physician training program developed by the physicians and surgical assistants that perfected the PureLipo™ technique. This training involved extensive didactic and hands-on, supervised instruction and training in all aspects of the PureLipo™ technique.
Why don't all physicians use the tumescent technique?
A simple answer is that with the use of small instruments and no powerful suction pump, this procedure often takes about twice as long to perform as traditional liposuction while costing much less. This new form of body sculpture also requires specific training different than that required for traditional lipo.
Is PureLipo™ expensive?
With PureLipo™ there is no need for expensive surgical rooms or general anesthesia. Therefore, it often costs thousands of dollars less than other forms of liposuction. Although it depends upon what areas are going to be treated, a typical procedure costs less than $5,000, which could be less than half the cost of traditional liposuction. Third-party financing options are available.
