About Liposuction

Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in Huntington, NY offers the most advanced treatments to effectively eliminate fat from the body. Lipo, or liposuction, is a body contouring treatment that reduces pockets of fat from the flanks, tummy, buttocks, and thighs to create a more defined appearance. This cosmetic procedure at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery can be combined to treat multiple body parts. When we see you for your consultation, Long Island plastic surgeons Drs. David Pincus, and John Layliev will assess areas of concern so you can attain your aesthetic goals. We want to help you feel and look your absolute best.

Ideal Candidates

Fat removal surgery is a great treatment for patients who are at an ideal weight, but have stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be lost with diet alone. Patients considering liposuction should not have excessive skin laxity because liposuction is not a treatment for loose skin. It's also important to understand that liposuction is not a treatment for weight loss.  At the time of your consult for surgery, our plastic surgeons will discuss your expectations.

Surgical Technique

Liposuction is completed in an outpatient setting under general anesthesia. A punch-hole incision is placed through the skin so a cannula can be inserted through the incision. A cannula is a tool that makes it easier to work loose the fatty tissue that is being suctioned out. After the desired amount of fat deposits have been reduced, one of our plastic surgeons will seal the small incision. Based on the number of sections treated, your procedure may take several hours. In the separate area for recovery, your post-operation nurse will assist you with managing your pain and look after your incision site until you are discharged.

What to Expect

It's typical to have bruising and swelling for one to two weeks, and you will have any stitches removed within 7 days after surgery. The most important thing to do following liposuction is to give your body time to rest and heal. Once you go back to your job after your surgery, you should do your best to take it easy. To increase your strength and stamina, try light workouts and go for walks as approved by your plastic surgeon. Keep in mind that you may see some improvements soon after your surgery, but it will take around 6 months until your new body contour and shape is complete.
