Female Liposuction in Brooklyn, NY

liposuction-dr-vitolo-brooklyn-new-yorkLiposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the U.S. As we age, the metabolism begins to slow down and certain areas of the body no longer respond to diet and exercise. These areas are called weight loss resistant areas. Liposuction can help women in Brooklyn, NY to refine these areas by removing excess fat deposits from the body. Though many individuals opt for liposuction treatment on the abdomen, waist or hips, the buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, and even the face (such as the chin, cheeks, and neck) can all benefit from liposuction. Dr. Robert Vitolo uses minimally invasive techniques to remove fat from specific problem areas and improve body proportion and appearance. Our Brooklyn patients appreciate Dr. Vitolo’s gentle ultrasonic liposuction technique and talent for enhancing the natural curves of a woman’s body, and for his signature buttock sculpting” procedure.

The Procedure

In the external ultrasound liposuction technique, the fat is liquefied by ultrasonic waves, before the liposuction is begun, and the fat is removed as a liquid. The ultrasound also aids in the contraction of the skin.

General anesthesia may be used for comfort during the duration of the liposuction procedure. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities in a day or two.

The initial result is immediately visible but improves over 2-3 months. Through sustained exercise and dieting, the loss of excess fat should be permanently maintained.

Post-Op

Recovery from liposuction is variable from one patient to another. Patients use a compression garment to help speed up the healing process. Following the procedure, most patients are able to move and walk easily. Generally, normal activities may be resumed in a day or two.

Considerations

Liposuction is often portrayed as a simple weight loss solution; however, in reality this is not the case. While liposuction can eliminate pockets of fat in targeted areas, it is more effective for body contouring than significant weight loss. If you have excess skin in your abdominal region, an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) may be a better option for you.
