Dr. Lefkovits performs this procedure in our New York cosmetic surgery office, usually under general anesthesia. Some cases may be performed under local anesthesia with or without sedation. There are several liposuction techniques that can be used to improve the ease of the procedure and enhance the outcome.
Types of Liposuction Offered
At Park Plaza Plastic Surgery, we are proud to be on the cutting edge of new technology. That’s why we’re now using SculpSure laser sculpting at our New York City location.
Dr. Lefkovits uses Tumescent liposuction, which consists of a diluted anesthetic solution mixed with epinephrine. This allows him to extract large of amounts of fat because of decreased blood loss. Liposuction can usually be performed in multiple areas at the same time.
BENEFITS OF THE TUMESCENT LIPOSUCTION TECHNIQUE
Less invasive micro-cannulas are used
More gradual, targeted and metered treatment
Contouring an area is more effective
Shorter recovery time
Uses local anesthesia
Less blood and fluid loss
Liposuction is normally very safe. After surgery, you will likely experience some fluid drainage from the incisions. Occasionally, a small drainage tube may be inserted beneath the skin for a couple of days to prevent fluid build-up. To control swelling and help your skin better fit its new contours, you may be fitted with a girdle to wear over the treated area for a few weeks.
Do not expect to look or feel great right after surgery. Even though newer techniques are believed to reduce post-operative discomforts, you may still experience pain, burning, and swelling.
After the liposuction procedure, Dr. Lefkovits’ patients will begin a course of massage and ultrasound treatments, which are performed at our New York City office. Post-op measures help to expedite the healing process following liposuction. Exercise can begin in a limited fashion two weeks after the liposuction procedure. You can usually return to work in a few days to one week.
