It is very frustrating for a person who’s done all the right things such as watching their weight and exercising to still end up with unwanted fat on their bodies. This fat can be on their abdomen, buttocks, thighs, under their arms or even in their chin. This is a special problem for many people whose bodies are simply reluctant to get rid of fat in certain places. It’s even more of a problem for those who live in New York City and pride themselves on looking good. One solution is liposuction in NYC.
One of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the world, liposuction works on a simple principle. Fat is sucked away from the problem area. Once fat cells are removed, they do not return. How does a New York City resident go about getting liposuction in NYC?
First a Consultation
The prospective liposuction patient needs to have a consultation with one of our surgeons to make sure they are a good candidate for the procedure. A good candidate is a person in good mental and physical health and has realistic expectations of the liposuction. They’re within their ideal weight as this is a body contouring treatment and not a weight loss procedure.
More and more surgeons are using tumescent liposuction as opposed to conventional liposuction. During conventional liposuction, the patient was often put under general anesthesia then spent a night in the hospital or clinic. In tumescent liposuction, the surgeon floods the area to be worked on with a solution of saline, lidocaine and a medicine that constricts the blood vessels. The patient is may be given local or general anesthesia. Other techniques may use ultrasound or lasers to emulsify the fat to be removed. This makes removal of the fat easier and avoids damaging other tissues in the area, including small blood vessels.
