Warning- not for the faint of heart! "Hey, this is Dr. Roy Kim in the operating room. You can see if you wait long enough with tumescent fluid, what I'm sucking out is pure fat. There's no redness, there's no blood, it's just pure fat. If you have any questions, let me know." In this video, I have waited 15-20 minutes for the tumescent fluid to kick in, and I'm sucking out liquid gold- pretty much pure fat. You can see the yellow to white fat in the clear plastic tubing, and no blood at all. This fat can be thrown away, or it can be saved to place back in your body- In your buttocks for a Brazilian butt lift, your face to make the wrinkles less deep, or other areas of your body and face to give a more youthful appearance. The noise is from the power assisted liposuction handle. If you'd like to set up a consultation for plastic surgery please DM me or email info@drkim.com or call 415 362 1846. #liposuction #tumescentfluid #plasticsurgery #operatingroom #vasoconstriction #plasticsurgeryvideo #cannula #pal #powerassistediposuction #liquidgold

In this video, I have waited for the tumescent fluid to work, and you can see that I am using the Power Assisted Liposuction device to remove fat. I am going back and forth in the same area, in the proper anatomic plane, to remove fat from this patient. You can see liquid yellow-white fluid being suctioned out- “liquid gold” because it’s mainly fat with some tumescent fluid.

This fat can be thrown away, and it can also be filtered and processed to make it more purified. If it’s purified, I end up with pure fat that I can “fat graft” into different areas of the body. For a Brazilian Butt Lift, I can inject fat directly into your buttocks. For deeper wrinkles of the face, I can graft your own fat into your cheeks, your lower eyelid wrinkles, your chin, your lips to plump them up- there are a ton of possibilities.

Call me at 415 362 1846 or email info@drkim.com to set up a consultation. I look forward to meeting you!
