How Does Liposuction Work?
Liposuction removes fat from the body that results in a slimmer, toned appearance. Liposuction allows for the sculpting of body areas by removing only precise areas of fat for maximum body contours. The most common body areas treated by liposuction are:
What is the Liposuction Procedure?
Liposuction begins with the necessary numbing agents for maximum comfort throughout the procedure. The anesthetic used during your liposuction procedure will be discussed and decided before the procedural appointment at the consultation with Dr. DiBernardo. Once numb, liposuction involves making small, discreet incisions in the targeted area and sucking out the fat through a very small tube, called a cannula.
Body Jet Liposuction
Body jet liposuction is a more modern version of the fat removal procedure. In body jet liposuction procedures, there is a gentle water spray that removes fat from the body through small incisions. Compared to the traditional suctioning method, the body jet procedure does not affect the surrounding blood vessels and connective tissue. The entire procedure is gentler and more precise than traditional liposuction. Because the substance removed using the body jet method is more concentrated fat, it is also ideal to use during fat grafting or transfer procedures.
How Much Does Liposuction Cost?
Liposuction is a procedural technique that can be used in various regions of the body to varying degrees. Depending on your desired results for the procedure, the cost of liposuction can greatly range from patient to patient. At an individual consultation, our doctor will talk to you about your procedure goals and come up with a cost accordingly. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Visa®, Master®Card, American Express® and Discover® for all procedures. We’re also proud to offer financing options via CareCredit® and AlphaeonTM to all patients.
What to Expect Following Liposuction
Because fat is removed during the procedure, results are visible immediately. Depending on the targeted area, full results can be seen anywhere from a few weeks to a few months after the procedure itself. Our doctor may recommend supportive undergarments to wear during the first few weeks of healing. Most people return to all normal activity within a month.
