Liposuction – Body Sculpting


Body Sculpting With Liposuction and Fat Transfer

Stubborn fat can cause many men and women to feel dissatisfied with their physical appearance, especially after they’ve attempted to get rid of the bothersome fatty tissue with a rigorous diet and exercise routine. Dr. D’Amore’s body sculpting procedures (liposuction and fat transfer) can assist patients with problematic fat by helping to reduce excess skin and fat while restoring tightness and elasticity to the skin.

Candidates

Ideal candidates must be non-smoking individuals of average weight and be in good health. If you have good skin elasticity, then liposuction alone can remove stubborn bulges and provide you with the flat, lean stomach you desire. Patients with skin laxity might consider combining liposuction with other body contouring procedures to remove any excess skin. Liposuction can reduce fat in one or more of the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Chin
  • Hips
  • Thighs

Consultation

During your scheduled consultation, Dr. D’Amore will go over your health history and evaluate the areas and extent of fat accumulation to determine the best treatment plan for you.

Procedure

Using the tumescent technique, Dr. D’Amore will make a small incision in the treatment site and infiltrate local anesthesia to help minimize pain. The fat is liquefied, and then Dr. D’Amore will insert a cannula to remove unwanted fatty tissue carefully sculpt the treatment area to create definition and a natural appearance. Dr. D’Amore can also perform liposuction to remove excess body fat and use it for fat transfer to enhance other areas of the face or body, such as the breasts and face.

Recovery

Bruising and swelling may occur following your procedure. Most patients may return to work a few days after their procedure, and they can resume normal activities including exercise programs in two weeks.

Cost

The cost of your procedure will vary depending on the area of your surgery and the extent of time and correction needed to achieve the figure you desire. Dr. D’Amore will provide you with a detailed cost sheet during your consultation.

Results

Following your procedure, you will have a balanced and aesthetically pleasing figure, be able to fit into tighter clothing, and feel more confident. Your results will be visible after a few weeks, and with proper diet and exercise, you can prevent additional fat from developing over time.
