Liposuction Can Help You Contour Your Body

A,Plastic,Surgeon,Marks,A,Woman's,Body,For,Surgery,ToIf you are at or near your recommended body weight and have pockets of fat that you can’t seem to get rid of despite diet and exercise, you may want to consider liposuction to contour your curves. The ideal liposuction patient has:

  • Good skin tone and elasticity
  • Good muscle tone
  • Excess superficial fat
  • Attempted to lose the fat deposits with diet and exercise

Factors that could deem an individual unsuitable for liposuction include:

  • Generalized obesity
  • Poor health or serious medical conditions
  • Loose skin with very little elasticity
  • Unrealistic expectations

A Consultation at SY Aesthetics (SYA)

During your initial consultation, your surgeon determines if liposuction will help you reach your aesthetic goals. If it is a good option, your doctor will discuss the surgery and explain risk, expectations, recovery and options.

Fat Removal

The amount of fat your doctor removes depends on your specific needs. Nonetheless, the maximum amount of blood, fat, and body fluids your SY Aesthetics doctor can remove is 5,000 ml, which totals about 10 pounds. It is important to note that shape, not weight loss, is the goal.

SY Aesthetics Liposuction

To ensure you remain comfortable throughout your procedure, you will receive monitored sedation or general anesthesia with our Board Certified Anesthesia providers in our QUAD A Accredited facilities in NYC or Middletown, NY.

Liposuction procedure steps:

  1. The surgeon sanitizes the treatment area.
  2. Your SY Aesthetics doctor hides a small incision in the treatment area.
  3. The surgeon then injects a fluid consisting of saline, a local anesthetic, and epinephrine to reduce the risk of bleeding, provide long lasting anesthesia to the area, and to expand the space for ease of fat removal.
  4. A small, specialized instrument called a cannula is used to remove the fat and sculpt the patient.
  5. The surgeon uses tiny sutures to close these incisions.

What To Expect as You Recover

Recovery following lipo usually lasts from three to seven days. Some discomfort, inflammation, and bruising during this time are likely.
