2016 is finally here – and you’re ready to make it the best year ever. This is going to be the year you finally get the body you’ve always wanted. This is the year you won’t let stubborn body fat drag you down. You’re not going to let anything hold you back…
That’s why you’re ready to get liposuction in 2016.
Liposuction is the most popular surgical procedure for both men and women, and for good reason – patient satisfaction rates are sky-high, while results can be positively life-changing. Think about it this way: how much more confident would you be if you could wear your favorite clothes or a bathing suit without worrying about that stubborn layer of fat holding you back?
If you’re in the metro Boston area, you’re in luck – board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Doherty specializes in a unique liposuction procedure known as “liposculpture.” This liposuction technique is performed under a local anesthetic, which allows Dr. Doherty to deliver the safest, most precise results to his patients. Additionally, patients will experience faster recovery with the best results possible.
Patients are awake for the entire procedure; however, Dr. Doherty provides relaxing pain medication before the surgery, thus ensuring that the patient is as comfortable as possible. Once the treatment areas are numbed with an anesthetic, Dr. Doherty makes small incision holes, which allows him to suction the fat out with small tools. Laser technology is also used during this procedure, as it helps to melt away the fat for easy removal; laser energy also assists with skin tightening.
After the liposuction procedure, patients should wear compression garments for 24 hours a day for three weeks. After this time period, patients will graduate to wearing compression garments for 12 hours per day for two months. These compression garments help with swelling, and can ensure that your results remain the same.
If you’re interested in undergoing the procedure, it’s important to have a ride to and from the procedure room, as well as have someone with you for 24 hours after the treatment. Patients who have loose skin should speak to their plastic surgeon about additional skin-tightening procedures.
