How liposuction can improve body contours

Many men and women maintain healthy lifestyles, following a nutritional diet and exercising daily. Even so, there may be troublesome areas of the body that may impact one’s self-confidence and self-esteem. When patients are within their ideal weight range yet have areas of unwanted fat deposits, it might be time to speak to a plastic surgeon of the Paramus, NJ area about the advantages of treatments such as liposuction. 

Understanding how liposuction works 

Liposuction, medically known as surgical lipectomy or lipoplasty, is the manual removal of fatty tissue from specific areas of the body. This cosmetic procedure, first introduced in the 1980s, continues to be a popular body contouring solution for both men and women. Liposuction has always been an effective way to remove unwanted fat, as it suctions it out and stores it in an outside cannister. This manual removal is often necessary when patients are unable to physically target the area with diet and exercise changes. With Dr. Frank Ferraro of Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey, patients can improve their body contours and address these specific areas effectively. Because liposuction removes fat cells from the body, patients will find that the results are reliable and long-lasting. 

Where can liposuction be used? 

Most anywhere on the face and body can improve with the use of liposuction, but the more commonly requested areas include: 

  • Neck
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Flanks
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs

What is the recovery time for liposuction? 

Liposuction can be stressful to the body, so it is important that patients take sufficient time off of work and other activities to allow their body to fully recover. Bruising, swelling, and discomfort can last days but are often reduced with over-the-counter pain medications and anti-inflammatory drugs. During a consultation appointment, Dr. Frank Ferraro will discuss the time needed to heal and recover outside of work.
