What Is Liposuction
If you have tried dieting and exercise but still have localized areas of fat that simply won’t go away, liposuction could be the answer you’ve been looking for. Liposuction may be used for contouring many areas of the body:
- cheeks, jowls and neck
- upper arms
- breast or chest areas
- abdomen and waist
- hips and buttocks
- inner and outer thighs
- inner knees
- calves and ankles
Liposuction can be performed on several areas at the same time and it can also be done in conjunction with other cosmetic plastic surgical procedures.
How Liposuction Surgery Is Performed
During liposuction surgery, body fat is removed by first inserting a small, hollow tube (a cannula) through one or more tiny incisions near the area to be suctioned. Incisions are usually less than one-quarter inch in length and are placed in places where they will be least noticeable, often within skin folds or contour lines. The cannula is connected through a tube to a vacuum pressure unit. Guided by Dr. Samuel Beran, one of Westchester’s leading plastic surgeons, the suction device then vacuums away your unwanted fat.
Laser-Assisted Liposuction (SmartLipo)
One of the newest liposuction techniques for fat dissolution is laser-assisted liposuction or SmartLipo. Using laser technology, SmartLipo liquefies fat by producing a burst of energy as the laser enters the fatty tissue. This laser energy is delivered by a thin laser fiber that is inserted through small incisions in the skin. Laser-assisted liposuction also stimulates collagen production in the skin, which may in turn offer additional skin-tightening benefits.
Determining which procedure is best for you — liposuction or SmartLipo — depends on many factors. Together, you and Dr. Beran will evaluate your options and decide which technique will deliver the best, most natural results for your individual body.
