Lunch Break Lipo
Lunch break lipo is so amazing that we can make body transformation in just an hour.

Shu Cosmetic Surgery has been successfully offering Lunch Break Lipo since the New Year of 2014. Lunch break lipo is a lightning-fast procedure that removes fat in your lunch hour. The new liposuction system improves the liposuction efficiency and patient safety and reduces the recovery time; this makes lunch break lipo possible in the ambulatory surgical facility.

Rationale for the lunch break Lipo is to improve many aspects of liposuction, including patient liposuction experience, efficiency, recovery, and patient safety. By limiting liposuction in an area, surgeons can use more tumescent anesthetic fluid in the lipo-ed area without worrying about lidocaine toxicity. It helps control pain, maximize fat removal, and facilitate recovery.

“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,’" Dr. Shu said. “Our lipo technologies and techniques are much safer and more precise than traditional ones.”

Shu Cosmetic Surgery is the most comprehensive liposuction center for advanced liposuction in Minnesota, offering three advanced technologies: Vaser Liposuction, Laser Liposuction and AquaShape – giving the most options and targeted results. Dr. Shu started offering Vaser liposuction in 2009; it quickly became his favorite liposuction technology. The Vaser Lipo system uses focused ultrasound energy to selectively get rid of fat cells without affecting much of the surrounding veins, nerves, and tissue. This results in faster healing and less downtime. It also helps to tighten skin. This is why Lunch break Lipo can be performed effectively and efficiently without any sedation.

It has taken Dr. Shu five years and more than 1,000 liposuction procedures to perfect his technique, and now he can comfortably work on just about any part of the body without sedation or minimal sedation. The most common areas for Lunch Break Lipo are the neck, upper arms, hips, inner thighs, and lower back.

The Lunch Break Lipo usually takes 30 to 45 minutes to finish in each area. The lipo area is given local tumescent anesthesia, but no general anesthesia or intravenous or oral sedation. The patients walk in and walk out in an hour, and 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.
