Many people have difficulty with stubborn fat deposits that will not go away, regardless of changes made to their diet or exercise routine. Liposuction is an effective procedure that many people have undergone to deal with such stubborn fat deposits.
New Jersey Plastic Surgery®, located in Montclair, NJ, provides liposuction procedures to people living in Middlesex County, New Jersey, and nearby locations.
What is the Liposuction Procedure?
Liposuction begins with the application of a numbing agent to ensure the comfort of the patient throughout the procedure. You will be informed of the type of anesthetic to be used during your particular procedure at your consultation with Dr. DiBernardo. When the treatment area is numb, small incisions are made to the area to be treated. The fat will then be sucked out by a small tube, or cannula, that is inserted into the incisions.
Some minor side effects are possible following a liposuction procedure. There may be some bruising that should fade within a few weeks. Any swelling can be expected to subside gradually in a month or two. Pain will be temporary and can be treated with over-the-counter medication in most cases.
Liposuction has helped transform the lives of many people. It can be a great solution for those with stubborn fat deposits or who simply desire a slimmer appearance. If you are a Middlesex County resident who is contemplating getting liposuction, you are invited to contact the office of New Jersey Plastic Surgery® today to set up your own private consultation.
