Liposuction is a safe way to remove excess fat from the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, and upper arms. Even the neck, cheeks, and chin can benefit from the slimming effects of liposuction. As a leading New York plastic surgeon, Dr. Norman Rowe is highly skilled in the delicate fat removal and contouring of areas of the body that may be resistant to diet and exercise. He is widely regarded for the even smoothing of skin and consistency in his liposuction procedures.
Your Liposuction Surgery
Liposuction is a common procedure, though in the experienced hands of Dr. Rowe patients are assured optimal results and the safest recovery. Depending on the degree of fat to be removed and the specific body areas targeted, Dr. Rowe may use tumescent liposuction, the super-wet technique, as well as ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) and power assisted liposuction (PAL) in an attempt to minimize swelling. He will also advise you about whether general or local anesthesia is needed. During liposuction, Dr. Rowe uses a cannula wand to gently disrupt and suction fat cells under the skin. Patients under local anesthesia often report a tingling or vibrating sensation and may feel mild pressure as Dr. Rowe contours the body. For some patients, more significant fat removal can be achieved through a series of liposuction procedures performed under general anesthesia.
Depending on the type of anesthesia used, you may be able to return to your daily activities immediately or you may be advised to rest at home during recovery. If you choose, Dr. Rowe and his staff can recommend local hotels and private nursing care to assist you during this time. Strenuous activity should be avoided for about a month after liposuction, though you are encouraged to walk as comfortable to promote healing.
Dr. Rowe is highly skilled in achieving noticeably slimmer, natural body contours. Both men and women are extremely pleased with the immediate results of Dr. Rowe’s liposuction. For up to three months after liposuction you will continue to see improvement as your body heals and swelling subsides. Dr. Rowe pays careful attention to placing cannula incisions in inconspicuous locations for nearly invisible scarring. Liposuction is a fat removal solution. Fat will not reappear in areas treated with liposuction and future weight gain may be uneven as a result.
