Year after year, liposuction is one of the most popular procedures in Cosmetic Surgery. The principle behind it is very easy to understand – we all have local deposits of fat that can be quite stubborn and unresponsive to our best efforts in dieting and exercise. There’s nothing worse than regularly working out, eating sensibly and still seeing that fat, just still sitting there. Lipo allows a Plastic Surgeon to sculpt those problem areas, removing the fat and getting the area flatter or curving in the way you want it to look.

Liposuction Consultation

Before choosing your options for a Liposuction procedure, you will have a private, in-depth consultation with Dr. Back, who has earned a reputation as one of the best Doctors for cosmetic surgery in the South Jersey and Philadelphia area. After an examination, he will review with you everything you want and need to know, and together you will discuss your goals and his recommendations. All the details of the procedure will be reviewed, and you will also have ample time for questions. ‘Before & After’ photos of our previous patients’ results are available to help new patients visualize the options available to them.

Liposuction Procedure

All modern liposuction is performed utilizing a local anesthetic (called the “tumescent technique”). Depending on the extent of the problem and other factors, general anesthesia may also be used. Small nicks are made in the skin and sculpting instruments (called “cannula”) are used which allow Dr. Back to simultaneously remove fat and reshape the areas. The cannula come in a variety of types and sizes, but are usually smaller than the diameter of a pen. As the new body shape begins to appear, Dr. Back will compare one side to the other for symmetry and refine and refinish the areas further until done. There are many special forms of lipo, such as Smartlipo, laser liposuction, and Vaser ultrasonic liposuction, which Dr. Back also uses. During your consultation, Dr. Back can explain which procedure would be appropriate for you.

Liposuction Recovery

The hidden, small nicks usually heal invisibly within days. Band-aids are the only ‘dressing’ needed after surgery. Most patients will wear a postoperative garment for 3-4 weeks to help guide the skin into its proper retracted contours and to minimize swelling and bruising. You should have only mild restrictions to your activities only, and you should be able to see a difference within a week, although the results will generally keep improving for many weeks after your procedure.
