What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is performed at our clinic in our state-of-the art operating room. Dr. Anthony P. Lockwood or Dr. Avi Islur will make tiny incisions near the area where the fat will be removed from. The incisions will be discretely placed in the natural folds and contours of your body to make them less visible. The doctor will insert a thin cannula through the incision, into the deep fat layer. The cannula is moved back and forth breaking up the fat and suctioning it out of the body.
Who is a candidate for Liposuction?
It is important to realize that a liposuction is not a short-cut for weight loss. Healthy eating and exercise are still very important to incorporate into your lifestyle. The goal of liposuction is not to lose weight, but to improve the body’s shape. You need to be in good health, at a stable weight and have specific but realistic goals for the improvement of your appearance.
Is there downtime there with Liposuction ?
Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure. Patients experience minimal discomfort that is easily controlled with oral medication. You will experience some bruising and swelling after surgery, as well as a feeling of numbness around the incision lines. You will be asked to wear a tight fitting garment, similar to girdle, that will help to decrease swelling and provide abdominal support as you heal.
What areas can be treated with Liposuction?
Thanks to all the different Liposuction techniques, virtually any area of the body can be treated. From the neck all the way down to the calves, Liposuction helps to sculpt the your body into the svelte shape you have always desired.
