LOVE YOUR BODY CONTOURS
A slimmer figure is something that countless individuals dream of. And, traditional methods of weight loss, such as diet and exercise, aren’t always completely effective for everyone. If you have tried to lose weight to no avail, you could benefit from a little help from skilled plastic surgeon, Joseph Fodero. Liposuction is performed at the Florham Park, New Jersey practice, Northeastern Plastic Surgery, to remove unyielding fat pockets in various problem areas. The procedure has been proven effective for our patients, and is a straightforward approach to achieving the physique you most desire. If you are considering liposuction to assist you in refining your figure, it is important to learn all pertinent details first. For more information about liposuction, we invite you to continue reading, and then contact our Florham Park clinic to schedule a consultation.
The first step in the process involves a one-on-one meeting with Dr. Fodero, at which time he will perform an examination and inquire regarding your aesthetic goals and medical history. It is important that you disclose any current health conditions you may have, or medications you are taking. We will also go over liposuction cost information at this time. Once it is established that you are an acceptable candidate, Dr. Fodero will map out an action plan. Then, the procedure is performed as follows:
- The patient is given general anesthesia so he or she sleeps comfortably during the procedure.
- Small, inconspicuous incisions are made at the treatment location.
- A thin tube called a cannula is inserted through the incisions to break up excess fat.
- Using a vacuum-like device, Dr. Fodero suctions the fat out of the body.
- Incisions are closed with sutures.
Dr. Fodero will provide aftercare instructions that should be followed explicitly to ensure a safe, speedy recovery, such as wearing compression garments, resting, and staying hydrated. Patients typically can return to work after approximately two weeks.
