A very popular plastic surgery procedure, liposuction removes stubborn fatty deposits under the skin that have not responded to diet and exercise. New York City area plastic surgeon Dr. Scott E. Newman performs liposuction for many of his patients to improve body contours and help them regain self-confidence.
How Liposuction is Performed
A relatively simple procedure, liposuction has increased in popularity as techniques have been refined over the last few years. The size of the necessary incisions has gone down, and complications have also gone down, making liposuction one of the safest available plastic surgery options.
Depending on how many areas you have treated, and how large these areas are, liposuction takes an hour or more to complete. Small incisions, usually less than half an inch in length, are placed discretely in the area. A small cannula, or tube, is then inserted and vacuum suction used to remove fat.
Liposuction is intended to remove fairly small deposits of fat. The best candidates are close to their ideal body weight and only wish to have a few areas treated to improve overall body contours. If irregularities in body contour are caused by factors other than subcutaneous fat, liposuction will not help, and another treatment should be considered.
I have two other friends that went to Dr. Newman and they had exactly the same issues I had. Both of them had body transformations that were nothing short of incredible. When I first made an appointment to meet with Dr. Newman he called me personally before I even met him. Who does that? From that moment on I had a good feeling about him. My initial consultation took about an hour and, honestly, there wasn't one question I had when I was done. My surgery was scheduled for about two months later and my recovery was not fun- but it was exactly what Dr. Newman prepared me for. There wasn't one thing I experienced during the first few days that Dr. Newman hadn't discussed with me beforehand. I work at a law-firm so I am at a computer all day long and I was back at work on the tenth day after my surgery. I am now about 5 months since my surgery and I am completely thrilled. Doing my breast and belly surgery together was definitely the right choice. I am wearing a bathing suit I never thought I'd ever look good in again and it's an incredible feeling. I would recommend this surgery and this surgeon to anyone. Thanks Dr. Newman!dianaf2
Recovery After Liposuction
Immediately after liposuction, you will experience swelling and bruising. Special pressure garments provided for you to wear will help reduce the swelling and help support treated areas. You will be back on your feet in a day or two and ready to return to work in less than a week, under most circumstances. The recovery time is relatively fast and uncomplicated, especially if compared to more invasive procedures such as a tummy tuck.
You will be able to see the results of your liposuction procedure immediately, but results will appear even more dramatic as healing progresses and swelling subsides. After a few weeks, healing will be complete and you can enjoy the new, slimmer, sleeker you.
