Liposuction with or without skin removal are the hallmarks of body contour surgery. The tumescent liposuction technique, done in our office surgery facility, will address those areas of your body that have not responded to diet and exercise. Dr. Smotrich will use his significant experience with this technique to decide with you what areas should be treated. There is often a need to remove excess skin, and procedures such as an abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck), thigh lift or arm lift will be discussed. When is comes to body contouring, there is never one operation or a series of procedures that suits everyone. This is where the individualized and personalized attention at Lawrenceville Plastic Surgery will be appreciated.
Liposuction using the tumescent technique is the most popular aesthetic operation in the United States because of the relatively rapid recovery time and high degree of patient satisfaction. Done in our office surgery facility, using sedation provided by our board certified anesthesiologists, unwanted areas of fat will be suctioned out after being injected with local anesthetic. Most patients are able to resume their normal routine in a day or two.
