What is liposuction?

posted in Fat Reduction, Fat Removal

Long Island is home to some of the best beaches around. Maybe you love the beach but haven’t been able to stick to that new diet or fitness routine the way you really wanted to. Maybe you just have a few stubborn extra pounds that make you self-conscious. Whatever the reason, you, like so many others, feel like your body doesn’t quite look the way you’d like and wish you had a little help in getting it there.

Liposuction and liposculpture provide worry-free methods of delicately reshaping your body by the removal of excess fat. Through the use of thin, hollow instruments called cannulas and tumescent fluid, fat is numbed, liquefied, and gently siphoned out of problem areas such as the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, waistline, arms, knees, ankles, calves, cheeks, jowls, and neck. Dr. Cameron Rokhsar is a widely recognized expert in tumescent liposuction and liposculpture, making him the perfect choice for your Long Island liposuction needs.

What can I expect during and after the procedure?

Because of the nature of the tumescent liposuction technique, the procedure can be performed, if desired, under a simple local anesthetic and lasts about 30 minutes to an hour depending on the amount of fat being removed. This technique also facilitates a faster recovery time than in traditional liposuction, allowing most patients to return to work in two to three days and even resuming workouts shortly thereafter.

Am I a good candidate for liposuction?

Though liposuction and liposculpture aren’t intended to solve obesity, they can be used to effectively trim inches from problem areas. The ideal candidate is physically fit and has a healthy diet but is unable to effectively remove excess fat through normal means. Age alone isn’t a significant factor, as Dr. Rokhsar has successfully treated patients ranging from their twenties through their seventies. Don’t let those extra pounds keep you from enjoying life to the fullest. Call Dr. Rokhsar, Long Island liposuction expert, to see what he can do for you today!
