Liposuction

Liposuction

Stubborn fat changes our contours and impacts how we feel in and out of clothing. Liposuction in Albany, NY with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Rockmore can be the answer. This procedure is used to contour the body and remove unwanted fat. Fat cells are removed for permanent, lasting results.

This safe, effective procedure can give you the shape you’ve always wished for. Areas Dr. Rockmore treats most often include abdomen (belly or stomach area), love handles on the hips, outer thigh saddlebags, inner thighs, knees, back, male chest, and arms. Almost any area of unwanted fat can be reduced and sculpted.

With your goals in mind, Dr. Rockmore can utilize his expertise to refine and sculpt your shape. Liposuction relies on your skin to have enough elasticity to shrink on its own and fit your new form. If not, a skin tightening procedure or Tempsure may be added. During your initial consultation, Dr. Rockmore will determine if liposuction is the right treatment for you. Schedule a consultation to design a customized treatment plan and achieve your aesthetic goals.

Liposuction Techniques

The Tumescent Technique

This procedure involves infusing a tumescent solution into the area containing the fat at the start of the procedure. This process reduces bruising and blood loss and creates a more even contour after the liposuction is done.

Power-Assisted Liposuction

PAL involves a cannula that oscillates, which makes it easier to guide through the tissue and remove the fat, allowing for more delicate sculpting. Dr. Rockmore typically combines the tumescent technique with PAL to give patients the best possible results.

Results & Recovery

Dr. Rockmore performs liposuction in a fully accredited outpatient center and has all of the safety equipment found in a major hospital. Liposuction is usually performed using general anesthesia provided by a board-certified anesthesiologist. When more limited areas are treated, liposuction can sometimes be done in our office under local anesthesia.

 

Following your procedure, you will have some swelling and bruising in the treated areas that may also extend to surrounding areas. It is important to walk around the house several times a day starting immediately after surgery, but to keep your activity level low until cleared by Dr. Rockmore, typically 5-7 days. A compression garment is provided by our office and is worn for 2 weeks in most instances.

 

For the first days after surgery, you may have some discomfort in treated areas that can be controlled with prescription medication. You will need to avoid swimming pools, hot tubs, and bathing in a tub until cleared by Dr. Rockmore.

 

After a month, your swelling and bruising should subside and you should start to see your new shape. The skin will continue to gradually tighten over the next several months. Massaging the treated areas will help the recovery process. You will soon be able to buy new clothes and show off your improved figure.
