Manhattan based plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Zevon explained in a recent press release how liposuction procedures sculpt the body and remove excess fat deposits, according to PR Newswire.
The board certified plastic surgeon also detailed the different variations of the liposuction procedure, a popular method for improving the body’s contours, and explained why some are better suited than others to meet specific aesthetic goals.
“According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), liposuction was the most popular cosmetic procedure in 2013, and for good reason,” Dr. Zevon said, according to PR Newswire. “It is highly effective, but the particular type of liposuction utilized must be appropriate for the individual patient to achieve optimal results.”
Liposuction removes fat that doesn’t respond to changes in diet or exercise by vacuuming it from the body through a tiny cannula inserted into the body through small incisions. Patients can undergo liposuction on numerous parts of the body, including the neck, chin, upper arms, chest, breasts, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, back, knees and calves.
Dr. Zevon uses three different liposuction methods at his Manhattan based plastic surgery practice, choosing the best techniques to both maximize results and minimize recovery times for patients.
Now the gold-standard treatment, this liposuction method involves injecting fluid into tissues before fat is vacuumed from the body. The fluid’s agents provide a myriad of benefits: making it easier to perform the surgery, reducing bleeding and swelling and relieving pain. A general anesthetic is typically unnecessary for this liposuction method, making the procedure safer for the patient.
This fairly new liposuction method uses sound waves to liquefy fat. UAL accurately targets fatty tissues and leaves surrounding areas undamaged. Zevon then removes the liquefied fat with a low-volume suction. The technique allows for better contour and less irregularity after surgery.
Zevon also uses the SmartLipo system of laser-assisted liposuction, which liquefies fat for easy removal from the body. An appropriate choice for body areas with skin laxity like the neck and arms, laser-assisted liposuction can also be used to remove fat from the abdomen, hips and thighs. SmartLipo uniquely tightens and improves the quality of the skin. The device’s laser energy increases collagen production and reorganizes collagen fibers to firm and smooth the skin.
SmartLipo is a great liposuction option and luckily, there are many opportunities for SmartLipo in the Naperville area. If you are a Naperville resident interested in learning more about SmartLipo, please schedule a consultation or contact one of our representatives today!
