WHAT IS LIPOSUCTION?
Liposuction, or lipo, is a procedure designed to remove excess fat from targeted areas of the body. The most commonly treated areas are the thighs, buttocks, hips, waist, stomach, arms, neck, and cheeks. By removing fat from specific locations, patients near the Pearl River, NY, or Englewood Cliffs, NJ, areas can achieve a slimmer, more flattering contour.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LIPOSUCTION?
Lingering body fat that does not respond to diet and exercise can be frustrating. Even if you do everything right, there may still be some areas of stubborn fat that refuse to budge. Liposuction may be the right choice if you are within 30 percent of your target weight, have good elasticity and muscle tone, do not smoke, and have realistic expectations. When it’s time to level up your look, visit Advanced Plastic Surgery & Medspa. With Liposuction Pearl River patients can enjoy benefits that include:

YOUR LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE
You’ll Wish You Did This Sooner
After determining your Liposuction approach, your doctor makes a small incision to insert the cannula and begins suctioning the fat to sculpt and contour your desired shape. However, liposuction does not address drooping skin; therefore, more surgery may be needed.
Step by Step Process
WHAT IS THE LIPOSUCTION PROCESS?
A local or general anesthetic can be used during liposuction to ensure a safe and comfortable surgery.
Tumescent fluid, which consists of lidocaine (an anesthetic), saline (purified salt water), and epinephrine (adrenaline) to restrict the body’s blood vessels (capillaries) is injected into the subcutaneous fat. This helps reduce bleeding during your procedure, resulting in less bruising and swelling while you heal.
After administering anesthesia and the liquid components, fat is removed using suction- -assisted technique. The suction-assisted approach makes a small incision and inserts a small tube, or cannula, which is gently moved back and forth under the skin to break up the fat layer. Fat is then suctioned out.
Closing The Incisions
Incisions are closed using sutures. Your procedure may last between one and five hours, depending on the amount of fat being removed. Drainage tubes, antibiotics, and compression garments may be used to promote healing during your recovery.
Result You Can See
Your body fat is removed from the body permanently, leaving behind a sculpted, trim physique. Patients who follow a healthy lifestyle and get plenty of exercise can prolong their results and improve their outcomes. Your results can be seen immediately and continue to improve over the next few months as any residual swelling dissipates.
LIPOSUCTION RECOVERY AND AFTERCARE
We encourage our Liposuction patients to begin regular, gentle walking immediately to help the recovery process. Most of your symptoms should subside within a few days. Many patients return to work within a few days if no heavy lifting or strenuous activities are required. Light exercise can resume after three to seven days. Heavy activities and exercise should wait for approximately one month following liposuction. It can take up to several months to see the full benefits of your procedure.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Am I an ideal candidate for liposuction?
This procedure is intended for patients who are near their ideal weight and in good physical and mental health. You should be at a stable weight, as Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or to replace exercise and healthy eating habits.
Can I combine liposuction with other techniques?
How much weight will I lose?
Liposuction is not a method of losing weight but sculpting and accentuating one’s figure. As a result, there will be significant gains in vertical measurement but no changes in body mass.
What are the potential risks involved?
Risks can be minimized when a qualified surgeon performs the procedure and all pre- and post-operative instructions are carefully followed. Potential complications may include the following:
- Delays in the healing process
- Fat or blood clots
- Fluid accumulation
- Irregularities in appearance, such as asymmetric or sagging skin, pigmentation changes, and/or numbness
- Lidocaine toxicity
- Perforation injury
- Unfavorable drug or anesthesia reactions (allergies)
Researching and identifying a surgical expert can help ensure your safety and comfort. Any risks or complications associated with your procedure will be thoroughly explained.
Will liposuction leave scars?
Incisions are made strategically in inconspicuous locations and are very thin and small. Any visible scarring should heal and begin to fade with time.
What does liposuction cost?
Each patient’s situation is unique, so the details you and your doctor discuss during your private consultation will determine the price of your surgery. Factors that will affect the cost may include surgical fees, anesthesia fees, the techniques used, and the amount of fat to be removed.
Is liposuction painful?
Any associated pain is controlled using prescription medication, along with post-operative care instructions.
