Pioneer in the field

Dr. Becker is internationally recognized as an expert in liposuction surgery. He is the inventor of the Becker Liposuction Cannula used for liposuction and liposhifting procedures. This revolutionary cannula is used around the world. At a recent national plastic surgery meeting, the Becker Cannula was shown to be superior to ultrasound and laser cannulas.

His articles on liposuction include:

  • A new suction cannula. Annals of Plastic Surgery, Vol. 25, No.2, August.
  • Treatment of Gynecomastia. Aesthetic Surgery, Fall 1994.
  • Sub dermal Liposuction to enhance skin contraction: A preliminary report. Annals of Plastic Surgery, Vol. 28, No. 5, May 1992.

A New Suction Cannula

The Becker Cannula was specially designed for use in liposuction and liposhifting. It represents a major advance in the engineering of suction instrumentation, allowing an unprecedented degree of speed and control due to a circumferential “basket” of riblike projections surrounding the opening. This unique design has been shown to facilitate the breakdown of tissue prior to aspiration without increased incidence of bleeding or other trauma. Less vacuum is required for suctioning. The smooth, rounded projections, moreover, tend to push nerves and vessels gently out of the suctioning field.

Available with a variety of shaft connections in both standard and micro sizes, the Becker Cannula has proven to be an extremely efficient instrument for a wide range of procedures including neck and facial work, aspirations of hips and buttocks, lipomas and gynecomastia.

Other advantages of the new cannula include greater feathering of the suction tract, greater ability to resect scarred tissue (as in redo lipoplasty and lipoma procedures) and the ability to resect tissues other than fat, such as breast and organized lymphedematous tissue.

The New VASER LipoSelection

Dr. Becker uses the New VASER LipoSelection System, a procedure that combines new patented technology with advanced surgical techniques to break up and remove fatty tissue. This procedure allows unwanted fat to be efficiently removed from the abdomen, breasts, arms, back, hips, knees, love handles, neck, chin, saddlebags, thighs and any other place that has developed “extra cushioning”.

The VASER LipoSelection System uses ultrasound energy, together with a Tumescent, which is a local anesthetic solution used to liquefy and dissolve fat cells, leaving surrounding tissue such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue relatively intact. The dissolved fat cells are then removed with gentle suction and massage. This procedure is not only safer than traditional liposuction, but there is less bruising, less down time, more skin tightening and smoother results.
