Losing weight is never an easy task, but when you reach the number you’ve been shooting for on that scale, suddenly all of the hard work is worth it. Unfortunately, even when you reach a stable, healthy weight, areas of stubborn fat often remain. These “problem areas” such lower belly, love handles, hips or thighs can be extremely difficult—seemingly impossible—from which to shed fat. With liposuction and the expertise of New York board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Fugo, you can finally achieve the ideal body shape you’ve been endlessly working toward.
Reasons to Consider Liposuction in New York
Several factors influence fat loss from specific problem areas of the body. Age, genetics and lifestyle may all work against your fat loss goals. Even with a rigorous gym routine and strict diet, some stubborn pockets of fat can remain unresponsive.
Liposuction is best for men and women who have reached a healthy weight, but are struggling to slim particular areas of their body. Dr. Fugo can perform a customized liposuction procedure to treat various parts of the body, including the: Neck | Chest/Breasts | Abdomen | Waist | Back | Arms | Hips | Thighs | Knees.
Your Liposuction Consultation
When you visit for your liposuction consultation, Dr. Fugo will listen carefully to understand your particular aesthetic goals. You and he work together to define and outline a liposuction treatment plan uniquely centered on your goals and expectations. Completely unique to Dr. Fugo’s practice, he is the only Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in the Hudson Valley that offers the full spectrum of body contouring procedures, both surgical and non-surgical. With this expertise, rather than being “sold” a particular procedure, upon completion of your consultation with Dr. Fugo, you’ll have an understanding of all treatment options available to you. With this information, you can then decide which procedure options best fit your expectations, lifestyle and budget.
How Dr. Fugo Performs Liposuction
Your liposuction with Dr. Fugo will be done either under sedation or general anesthesia. These options generally depend upon patient desire as well as the areas and amount of fat being removed. Dr. Fugo uses custom 3mm cannulas (thin, hollow tubes) which require only tiny incisions near the target area. The cannula is connected to a specialized surgical vacuum, carefully inserted through the incision and the target area of fat is removed. The cannula is expertly maneuvered to break-up and extract the stubborn fat cells while contouring and smoothing the surrounding tissues. Once removed, these fat cells are gone for good. When your desired body shape is achieved, Dr. Fugo will close your incisions and place the necessary dressings.
Liposuction Recovery and Results
Immediately following your liposuction, Dr. Fugo will place you into a surgical garment which is worn for a short period of time to aid in maintaining your desired contour. This garment is designed to ensure proper healing of the skin and tissue. You will notice dramatic, positive changes in your figure as soon as your surgery is complete. However, there may be some minor initial bruising and expect temporary moderate swelling. Within one month, the bruising and soreness dissipates. As you heal, your resulting appearance will continue to improve, leaving a more natural, slim body contour. Post-operative scarring is nearly imperceptible.
Depending on which area or areas were treated and the demands of your lifestyle, most patients return to work within several days. It may be two to three weeks before you can return to all normal activities without restrictions. Before you know it, you are ready to enjoy your new look and maintain long-lasting results.
