Many of us struggle with losing excess fat. For some people, losing excess fat isn’t a mater of a strict diet and exercise. For many patients, receiving help from a plastic surgeon is the solution you need. With liposuction, you can remove “stubborn” fat from those areas that you can’t lose in any other way. For many patients, it is a way to “jump start” a healthier lifestyle.
treated with Liposuction. Patient is 5’7”, 200 lbs. This procedure is ideal for patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their waist, buttock, or hips, and cannot improve it in spite of diet and exercise. We use a proprietary technique as the cornerstone of our body contouring procedures. First off, these procedures are typically performed awke, in the office, with only local anesthesia (although patients can request deeper sedation, if they so desire). In addition to Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL), we typically use Laser Lipo or VASER (vibration-assisted ultrasound) to reduce dense, fibrous fat, and stimulate collagen formation; Radiofrequency-based skin tightening (Pelleve) to maximize skin contraction; and High Energy Radial Pulse Technology (ZWave), RF, or subcision (Cellfina) to treat cellulite and improve any irregularities. Patients go home the day of surgery; typically do not use any narcotics postop for pain control, and are back to light exercise and work 48 hours after their procedures.
