Considering Liposuction? What you need to know.
Want to get rid of troubled areas of fat that you’ve struggled with for a long time? Maybe you have tried several alternatives but have struggled with excessive fatty areas that you just can’t get rid of. While it’s still cold and you’re bundled up now, you might be envisioning your dream bikini body. Now is the perfect time to discuss your options so you can feel your most confident this summer by the pool or beach!
Liposuction provides patients with peace of mind that their problem areas can be eliminated once and for all. With several techniques available for those seeking liposuction treatment, the procedure itself is performed routinely at Suffolk Plastic Surgeons, P.C. in our fully accredited, on site operating room.
As technology has improved, so has the way we perform liposuction. Today, we rely mainly on a tumescent technique but we also use laser energy to assist the process. When the laser-assisted tumescent liposuction procedure is performed, a laser is used to target an area of fat that is liquefied and then removed. Because some people opt to have liposuction per-formed to treat excess or sagging skin, the laser can also be used to tighten areas of skin after the liposuction treatment has been performed.
While liposuction is an outpatient procedure, patients still experience swelling, bruising and discomfort in the treated area(s). Patients typically return to normal activities within a few days, while more strenuous activity such as working out, should be put off for a few weeks while the body has time to heal completely.
Winter is the perfect time to have liposuction, as you’re inside more and have time to properly heal. You can achieve the beach body you’ve always wanted in time for Summer. If you’re considering liposuction and want to talk about the procedure in more detail, give Suffolk Plastic Surgeons, P.C. a call today to schedule a consultation!
