Do you struggle with surplus fat in one or more areas of your body? Have you tried non-surgical ways to tone your physique but are still not satisfied? If so, it might be time to consider liposuction. Liposuction is a surgical technique used to slim and reshape specific areas of the body. While liposuction is not a weight loss solution, it will remove stubborn fat from trouble areas thereby reshaping and improving your body and its appearance.

Keep in mind that liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss in cases of generalized obesity. Ideally, the perfect liposuction candidate is at or close to their goal weight and are focused on specific target areas that they want to fix. Also, the patient should not have any uncontrolled medical conditions that could complicate recovery or raise surgical risks. Any concerns should be discussed with Dr. Katz during the initial consultation.

And finally, he will explain a treatment approach for your case based on your unique needs and goals and answer any further questions.
What Does Liposuction Surgery Involve?
During surgery Dr. Katz removes the excess fat from specific areas of the body using suction. Gentle suction removes the fat while the patient is under IV sedation. Furthermore, surgery takes place within the on-site surgical suite, where the patient is monitored by a certified anesthesiologist along with an experienced surgical team. After surgery, a compression garment is worn over the treated area to help the area heal quickly.
What is Liposuction Recovery Like?
Swelling, temporary bruising, and soreness at the treatment site is common after liposuction surgery. In order to reduce swelling, compression garments are worn for three weeks after surgery. Using the required compression garment, the skin compresses to the body’s new contours. Also, the garment helps with faster healing and recovery. As with all surgery, our complete recovery care instructions are provided after surgery.
During recovery, you should rest your body as much as possible, avoiding bending, heavy lifting, or other strenuous activity. Additional re-check appointments with Dr. Katz will be scheduled to review your healing progress and let you know when to return to work, exercise, and other normal activities.
