To begin your White Plains NY liposuction procedure, Dr. Reinblatt will administer local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. You will be awake throughout the experience. From there, she will create tiny incisions (1/4 of an inch) in the areas of the face and body where fatty deposits are to be removed.
She will insert a thin cannula through the incisions, moving the device back and forth to break up the fat cells while a pump suctions them out of the body. Blood and other fluids will flow into the pump as well, so you will receive replacement fluids through an IV during and after the procedure.
Once your face and body have been contoured and sculpted, your procedure is complete. The incisions will be left open to close on their own, as this can minimize post-operative bruising and swelling.
Despite being one of the most popular plastic surgeries, liposuction is an art form that requires a high level of skill. If it's not done properly, you can have uneven fat removal, ridges and dimples after the procedure. The better your surgeon's artistic eye and technical skill, the better your results will be. For example, Dr. Reinblatt doesn't just remove volume - she contours the area, extracting precisely the right amount of fat from precisely the right locations to achieve your desired outcome.
To be considered an ideal Westchester liposuction candidate, you should answer "yes" to the following questions:
"Dr. Reinblatt fully explained the procedure. Made me feel comfortable and calm. Experienced and professional. Felt totally secure and taken care of in her care because she always has my best interests in mind :)."
"I am extremely pleased with Dr. Reinblatt. I have referred 5 other people to her all of whom are also very, very happy. I highly recommend her practice."
For many of her White Plains and Westchester, NY patients, Dr. Reinblatt can remove up to ten pounds of excess fat. However, these effects may not be visible immediately as swelling and bruising can obscure the results. In addition, your skin may appear loose right after the procedure, although it should mold to your new shape eventually.
In general, the full results of your liposuction in Westchester will be apparent several months after surgery. At that time, most of our patients report the following improvements:
These results will need to be proactively maintained moving forward, by following a healthy exercise and diet plan.
Today’s liposuction procedures are minimally invasive which have helped improve recovery time. You can expect some discomfort for approximately 48 hours once the anesthesia wears off. Any lingering pain can be managed by medication prescribed by your surgeon or over the counter pain medications such as Tylenol or ibuprofen. Once you feel comfortable, you should do a bit of walking around the house to promote circulation.
Depending on your procedure, you may be required to wear a support garment for the first few weeks to reduce swelling. You will need to rest after your Westchester liposuction procedure, but you can return to work when you feel ready, usually after two to three days. Regular activity can resume within a week to 10 days. Swelling should dissipate around eight to 12 weeks.
You can go home the same day as your Westchester liposuction procedure, but you will need a friend or family member available to drive you home. If possible have someone stay with you to help for the next 24 hours, as your movements might be a bit limited.
Depending on how many areas are being treated and the size of the patient, a liposuction procedure can take anywhere from two to four hours. Local anesthesia or IV sedation can be used and will play a factor in the overall length of the procedure.
During your appointment with a liposuction specialist in Westchester, a small incision will be made from which the fat cells are accessed and suctioned from your body. Scarring can occur but should be minimal and fade over time. Every attempt will be made to ensure that the incision is placed in a discreet area to minimize visibility.
Liposuction can cause disruption of the blood vessels, which can result in bruising. The severity of bruising after liposuction can vary by patient.
Typically, bruising should be mild and most noticeable around the treatment area. Any bruising should be resolved around two to three weeks post-treatment.
Liposuction is not intended to be a weight loss program. It is a body contouring procedure that targets areas of fat that do not respond well to diet and exercise.
If you are considering liposuction, you should be close to your ideal weight and have established a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and exercise routine.
