Top Rated Liposuction in New York
Liposuction is a procedure used to improve the body’s contour by removing stubborn fat deposits that have failed to respond to diet and exercise. It may sound simple, but it actually requires considerable training and technical skill on the part of the surgeon, as well as an artistic sensibility. Its other name is “liposculpture” for a good reason.
Is Liposuction Right For You?
Dr. Kevin Tehrani has performed countless successful liposuction procedures on his patients. Every procedure is highly customized for you based on your anatomy and how you wish to look. He evaluates you carefully and devises a surgical plan that uses the technology of liposuction to recontour your face or body.
Note that while liposuction removes the fat cells from the treated area, it is not a substitute for weight control or exercise. If you gain weight after liposuction, however, the fat will be distributed more uniformly throughout your body. It will not accumulate disproportionately in the same areas.
The most frequently treated areas in women are the chin, abdomen, thighs, hips, knees, arms, back, buttocks, calves, and ankles. Men typically have liposuction performed on the neck, chin, abdomen, “love handles,” and chest/male breasts (gynecomastia).
If you have a double chin or localized pockets of fat on your body that have not budged despite exercise and weight loss efforts, you might be a good candidate for liposuction. A good candidate is of relatively normal weight with one or more areas of fat deposits and with good skin elasticity.
Prior to your appointment date for surgery, Dr. Tehrani may request that you visit your medical doctor for a checkup and for any necessary lab work and x-rays. Precise preoperative instructions will be provided, and all necessary prescriptions will be given to you. All aspirin, aspirin-containing products, and anti-inflammatory products must be stopped at least ten days before and for ten days after your surgery. You will also be given a list of vitamins and homeopathic preparations to take prior to and after your surgery to promote healing and limit bruising.
Dr. Tehrani makes small incisions in inconspicuous locations to insert a hollow tube called a cannula into the skin. Using the popular tumescent liposuction technique, fluid is added to reduce bleeding and pain. The cannula is attached to a clear plastic tube and connected to a vacuum device. Excess fat is then removed in layers until a pleasing improvement is made.
Several areas may be suctioned during one procedure. Liposuction is often combined with procedures like tummy tucks and facelifts.
Meet Dr. Kevin Tehrani, MD FACS
Top plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani is the founder and director of Aristocrat Plastic Surgery. He values reaching the highest levels of achievement in reconstructive and plastic surgical training, continuing education and clinical experience. Your comprehensive consultation will be exceedingly informative, clear, balanced and there will be plenty of opportunity to discuss all your concerns.
After surgery, you are fitted with an elastic garment after surgery that you must wear for two to three weeks. You can go home a couple of hours after the procedure in the care of a friend or family member. We can arrange for a private nurse at your request.
Most patients describe the pain following liposuction as mild. Pain medication will be prescribed, and you can expect some post-surgical bruising and swelling. The bruising will resolve within a week or so, but the swelling may take two weeks to go down completely. Most people take no more than a week off from work, and exercise should be avoided for at least two weeks.
We will encourage you to walk short distances for the first several days after your procedure, and we will, of course, monitor your healing progress.
