If you've been working tirelessly to remove stubborn fat from your body, you may be interested in liposuction. Even with a healthy diet and plenty of exercise, there can be troublesome areas that are resistant to fat loss. Liposuction can be performed to remove these fat cells and help restore your body to its desired appearance. There are different types of liposuction that Dr. Lefkovits performs at his New York cosmetic surgery office, but all of them will have a very similar recovery process. Most times Dr. Lefkovits will use general anesthesia, but sometimes the liposuction procedure can be performed with only local anesthesia. After liposuction, whether you were sedated or not, you will most likely experienced swelling, and possibly some minor burning and pain. Dr. Lefkovits recommends that you go through a course of massage and ultrasound treatments after liposuction to facilitate healing. On top of this, you will also go through the following care after liposuction:
- Wearing compression garments to help remove excess fluid and relieve swelling
- Follow-up visits
