Liposuction Surgery in NJ

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that removes unwanted fat beneath the skin. It slims and reshapes areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits while improving your body contours. I have over 25 years of experience performing liposuction surgery in New Jersey, helping patients achieve a more sculpted figure and flatter abdomen.

Liposuction Candidates

Ideal liposuction candidates are healthy individuals who have a collection of localized fat remaining intact despite a healthy diet and regular exercise. All candidates should be in good general health, have realistic expectations for the outcome of their surgery, do not smoke, and have specific surgical goals in mind for the procedure. Liposuction, however, is not for individuals looking for an alternative to weight loss.

What to Expect During a Liposuction Consultation

During your liposuction consultation, I will talk with you about your current medications, drug allergies, previous surgeries, medical conditions, and surgical goals. My team and I will also evaluate your general health, discuss potential risks and complications, answer any questions you have about the procedure, and recommend other procedures to combine with your liposuction surgery, depending on your desired outcomes.

How to Prepare for Liposuction

Preparing for liposuction may require you to get an additional medical evaluation, quit smoking, stop or take certain medications, and avoid aspirin or herbal supplements that may cause an increase in bleeding. After liposuction surgery, you are not allowed to drive. Please set up arrangements for someone to take you to and from our surgical center.

Liposuction Procedure

I perform liposuction procedures under general anesthesia at an outpatient surgical center. Based on your body type and aesthetic goals, I make several small incisions in the treatment areas and inject a tumescent solution to minimize blood loss and reduce post-surgical bruising and pain. I use a small tube with a vacuum syringe to draw out the localized fat deposits. I insert the tube into your incisions to loosen excess fat in a back and forth motion, suctioning out the unwanted fat from your body. Liposuction procedures require fewer and smaller incisions, which provides more natural results.

As a board-certified plastic surgeon in NJ with years of experience performing liposuction surgery, I challenge the notion of two-dimensional liposuction and elevate it with a three-dimensional concept of aesthetic body contouring. Three-dimensional contouring (circumferential lipoplasty) involves removing fat from the entire torso, arms, and thighs with the additional benefit of facilitating “shrink wrapping” of tissues.

Shrink wrapping of the tissues leads to more dramatic and positive shape changes in different areas of the body that liposuction can treat, such as the chest, abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, upper arms, back, and calves. I often combine liposuction with other reshaping procedures, such as a tummy tuck, buttock fat grafting, or breast reduction and lift to maximize your body contouring results.

Liposuction Recovery Time

Liposuction recovery time depends on the type of procedures performed and the person. However, most of our patients can return to work within a few days and resume normal activities within two to four weeks. After the surgery, you may experience bruising, swelling, and soreness. To achieve the best outcomes, you will have to wear elastic bandages or compression garments to reduce your swelling and help shape your new body contours. Temporary drains are also placed in your incisions beneath the skin to remove excess fluid.

For a successful liposuction recovery, make sure you follow your post-operative instructions, including how to take care of your drains and incisions, specific concerns to look for, and when to return for a follow-up appointment. Liposuction results may take several months to fully develop. However, once the swelling and fluid retention subsides, the results are long-lasting if you maintain your weight and exercise after your full recovery.

Liposuction Results

Undergoing a liposuction procedure can increase confidence and body image for individuals frustrated with unwanted fat. It will take a few weeks after the surgery for swelling to start to subside, and the targeted area should showcase a more slender appearance after four months or so. Results should align with the patient’s desired goals; for example, you may see improved body proportions, a reduction in fat bulges, or more defined natural curves of your body. Liposuction will leave lasting results; however, weight gain or loss and aging can affect your appearance. Therefore, it is crucial to adopt a healthy lifestyle and keep a consistent weight to sustain the outcome for an extended period of time.
