ABDOMEN LIPOSUCTION IN NYC — FAQs
Factors like aging, genetics, hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, weight gain and poor diet can lead to a “belly pooch” or a protruding tummy in both men and women. Abdominal liposuction in NYC involves using minimally-invasive technologies to remove the excess fat and tighten the skin. When performed by an expert, the procedure results in a trim, well-shaped abdomen with a more natural profile.
Those who are planning to undergo abdominal laser lipo must meet the following criteria –
- Be above 18 years of age
- Be in general health, without any underlying medical conditions
- Have realistic expectations about the outcome
- Has localized fat deposits in the abdomen/tummy region that are resistant to diet and regular exercise
- Have healthy skin with good elasticity and ideal body weight
- Have a healthy body weight
- Be nonsmokers
Factors like the age of the patient, location of the fat, and weight fluctuations may affect the results of the procedure.
At bodySCULPT, our plastic surgeons utilize minimally-invasive body contouring technologies such as Smartlipo, BodyTite, VASERlipo to remove stubborn abdominal fat and improve body contour with fewer complications and less downtime than traditional liposuction. The procedure is generally performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia. The surgeon first marks the specific area in the abdomen to be treated and numbs it with local anesthesia. The cannula of the device is then inserted under the skin through a small incision. Energy – laser, radiofrequency or ultrasound energy – is delivered to target the unwanted fat cells, causing them to liquefy. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out.
As the treatment is minimally invasive, recovery is much faster than for conventional liposuction surgery. Most patients return to their normal activities in 24-48 hours. Following your surgeon’s instructions is important for smooth recovery and good results.
Minor swelling is common after the procedure. Swelling after the plastic surgery procedure – which is quite normal – usually starts to go down by the end of the first week. Some swelling may last for as long as six weeks. Post op care usually involves wearing a compression garment to reduce the swelling.
Generally, surgeons recommend wearing the compression garment for abdominal lipo 24×7 for the first 3 weeks post-op and after that, at night for another 3 weeks. Wearing the compression garment will help reduce bleeding and swelling, and minimize the risk of seroma (fluid accumulation that can occur in the body after surgery).
As results may vary based on individual considerations and factors like age and location and amount of fat removed, patients should have realistic expectations. Generally, the final results of the procedure will be visible within six months or after the body has healed completely.
