Why choose Liposuction?
Liposuction is an excellent means to improve the contour of your body that would otherwise not change with diet and exercise. A perfect example is a fit woman who spends hours in the gym and is unable to realize the shape she desires and similarly, the man who lifts weights but cannot seem to change the look of his “love handles”. These areas are genetically predetermined areas of fat that only liposuction can improve. Liposuction has one of the highest satisfaction rates among plastic surgery procedures. The inspiration derived from your enhanced contours can be an invaluable motivation for your ongoing health and aesthetic goals. Even though liposuction should not be used as a primary means of weight reduction, we find that many of our patients go on to lose weight after the procedure.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, liposculpture suction, lipectomy, or lipo, is a type of surgery that breaks up and vacuums fat from the body as a way to improve contours that would otherwise not change with diet and exercise. Currently body contouring can be successfully achieved by removing fat through tiny incisions utilizing a small, thin tube called a cannula. Areas of the body that can benefit from these changes include:
* Face- Jowls
* Upper Arms
* Breasts in Women
* Chest for Men (Gynecomastia)
* Flanks (love handles)
* Back Rolls
* Buttock Sculpting
* Pubic mound and labia majora
* Outer Thighs (saddle bags)
* Inner Thighs
* Circumferential Thighs (all the way around)
How we are different.
Dr. Richard Bensimon has developed the Bensimon Micro Sculptor™, a small liposuction cannula invented and designed for superior fat harvesting and skin tightening without the need for incisions. The Bensimon Micro Sculptor™ is now being used by surgeons world-wide.
The Bensimon Micro Sculptor™ is a little, wand-like tool that is used to contour areas of the body. The small size of the wand allows Dr. Bensimon to target troublesome spots and artistically sculpt these areas. This cannula allows for superior fat removal and skin tightening without the need for incisions. The small holes and smaller diameter enables entry with a needle puncture helping to leave no marks on the skin. Used in combination with Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL), which is a gentler and more effective way of removing fat, The Bensimon Micro Sculptor™ provides outstanding sculpting that helps to minimize swelling, bruising, soreness, and numbness.
In many instances liposuction can be comfortably performed in the office with local anesthesia and mild sedation. Minimal dressings and a comfortable supportive garment is worn after surgery to promote faster healing and optimal results. You can expect to feel tender which improves over 1-2 weeks.
