how to prepare patients for liposuction surgery

Advanced Liposuction training through The American Association of Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery (AAAMS) can give physicians proper education to perform the liposuction procedure. 

Here are the top four reasons why liposuction training can benefit your practice.

Better Understand the Procedure

In AAAMS, you will undergo a comprehensive training program to receive your certification to perform liposuction. The first part of earning your certification includes a self-paced basic liposuction training (LIPO 201) that goes over the history, complications, and techniques for the procedure. Many other topics are also covered in this aesthetic course, including fundamentals and techniques for various types of liposuction procedures. The introductory course folds into the 3 Full days of in-person with the advanced liposuction training (LIPO 301) which allows all students to practice on a real patient and perform tumescent liposuction and liposculpting.

Practice On Different Parts of the Body

With successful completion of the course, you will have performed liposuction on many different parts of the body. You can choose from the tummy, back, thighs, and other areas to complete the hands-on part of the aesthetic training. The in-person course lasts three days, and for each of the last two days, you will be able to treat a real patient in one area. Before you treat patients, you will be instructed on preparing for a patient consultation and the techniques for surgical procedures. Many techniques that are important to patient health are discussed, including Pre and Post Liposculpting Care and Open Drainage and Bimodal Compression.

Offer More Services

If you plan to perform liposuction at your own practice, the list of services you offer grows. Along with this, the number of patients you are able to treat increases. Having more options for future patients allows them to explore all you have to offer. If they have this procedure in mind after getting other treatments with your practice, they will have a practitioner they trust ready to perform. They can also recommend your practice to friends with a wide need of concerns because with the variety you offer, they are sure to find a procedure that suits them. Offering more services can also be very profitable for your practice. The aesthetic medicine industry has been growing over the years and many people are looking for reputable places that can treat them.

Learn How To Consult With Patients

Before you perform any liposuction, you consult with the patient on what their desired look is. During this process, you will cover many important tasks, such as a pre-op evaluation, standardized patient evaluation, and marking and photography. The in-depth knowledge of these steps enhances the experience you have with your patients and builds a trusting relationship. 

 In the course, you will go over these topics and how to implement them into your practice. With knowledge of these different steps, you will be able to answer any questions your patient may have over the procedure. This course also discusses how to handle the inquiries you will have about different parts of the liposuction process. Another important part of communicating with customers is conflict management. The class will expand on what to do with patient escalations and bad reviews.
