How Liposuction Can Give You the Look You Want for Summer

Liposuction is an effective way to refine areas of your body such as the abdominal area. It is not a weight loss procedure. It’s solely meant to slim the area where liposuction is performed. It’s perfect for those who just have a small amount of fat tissue in areas where it may be difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise. The results of liposuction vary; however, it can lead to a flatter, tighter tummy with minimal to no scarring.

Types of Liposuction

There are many types of liposuction procedures available. At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York, we believe in offering the safest, most effective, and least invasive procedures available today.

We offer two types of liposuction:

  1. Tumescent liposuction
  2. Smartlipo™ laser liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is a “wetting” solution that is injected into the fatty tissues underneath the skin. This numbs the area for fat removal and decreases post-operative pain and bleeding.

Smartlipo™ laser involves inserting a laser fiber into the area through a small incision. The laser light gives off gentle heat, which destroys and liquefies the fat cells. Then, the liquid fat is sucked out through a vacuum cannula (tube). The distinct advantages of Smartlipo include melting of the fat, tightening of the skin, and far less post-op pain or bruising than non-laser tumescent liposuction.

Recovery from Liposuction

Now is the perfect time for liposuction. Downtime is not long; you will only need a few days off of work. It’s important to rest during recovery and to walk around starting on the night of surgery. This will help increase blood flow and speed up healing.

During recovery, you may see some swelling and very light bruising, but that is not permanent. The incision for the cannula is extremely small, so there is minimal scarring. Some people never see anything at all after they heal completely.

Don’t continue to look at yourself in the mirror wishing your abdominal area was slimmer and tighter. Call Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York for a free consultation.
