Before and after Liposculpture Surgery
Dr. Applebaum will combine art and years of surgical expertise with his face and neck lift to create natural-looking, “not done” results for many years.
Why Dr. Applebaum?
Patient care, trust and your satisfaction with good outcomes are my upmost concern.
Dr. Applebaum has been creating incredible results using liposculpture for nearly 30 years. If you are struggling with stubborn body fat that won’t go away no matter how much you diet and exercise, you can benefit from a liposculpture procedure. Liposculpture isn’t a substitute for weight loss, but it can help you refine the results of your hard work and give you the slimmer, shapely, self-confident appearance you’ve been searching for.
Dr. Applebaum performs liposculpture by using a body sculpting technique that contours and removes unwanted fat cells using small cannulas, or thin tubes, and the tumescent fluid technique, which involves sending large amounts of fluid under the skin to provide anesthesia, reduce blood loss, and targeting of fat cells, making them easier to remove. Unlike other methods that use laser or ultrasound, Dr. Applebaum’s technique provides the highest standard of care and superior results by using small, cosmetically placed incisions that leave little to no signs of the surgery once recovery is complete.
Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction/BodyTite
Patients who want additional results above and beyond the liposculpture procedure may benefit from a skin tightening procedure called Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL). RFAL can help correct common issues like back rolls with bra fat, muffin tops, and loose abdominal skin. Also known as the BodyTite skin tightening procedure, RFAL is particularly effective when combined with a liposuction procedure because it can improve the outcomes and reduce fat cells in areas where traditional liposuction is unable to tighten skin.
Why Consider Liposculpture Surgery
I work out and exercise several times a week, but I could not get rid of those stubborn love handles. Dr. Applebaum sculpted away those love handles and my body looks like it did in high school and college with amazing results.
LIPOSCULPTURE PROCEDURE FAQs
Body Tite works by applying thermal energy above and under the skin, tightening the network of tissue just under the skin that loses laxity with age. A local anesthetic and epinephrine are injected into the targeted area, allowing fat cells to be removed more easily. The radiofrequency energy visibly tightens the tissue and liposuction removes the fat, creating much improved results in areas where skin tightening is needed. The BodyTite procedure commonly used on the abdomen, arms, sides, knees, thighs, bra line, and male breasts.
Two major innovations have improved liposuction results over the last twenty years: the use of small cannulas (thin tubes), and the tumescent fluid technique with epinephrine( adrenaline), which involves sending large amounts of fluid under the skin and into the fat to provide anesthesia, reduced blood loss, and firmness of targeted fat cells, making them easier to remove. Dr. Applebaum has applied these developments to his body sculpting technique, which contours and removes unwanted fat cells, providing incredible results with minimal scarring. Power Assisted Liposuction or PAL is a technology that Dr. Applebaum utilizes for sculpting area of difficult fat removal.
If you’ve spent any amount of time researching liposuction and its alternatives, you may have come across claims from companies that manufacture laser or ultrasound devices that promise to improve liposuction recovery time and results. However, to date, there have been no studies that demonstrate any benefits of laser or ultrasound for obtaining superior results as compared to Dr. Applebaum’s tumescent fluid technique with small sculpting cannulas.
Liposuction results are measured by an improvement in body contour, such as better fitting clothes or a decrease in dress size, and not in absolute loss of inches
Liposuction is not a substitute for living a healthy lifestyle, including diet and exercise, and it is not a treatment for obesity. The procedure is best suited for the removal of excess fat deposits on the body that have not responded to diet and exercise. The best candidates for liposuction meet the following criteria:
- Adults who are within 30 percent of their ideal body weight and have good muscle tone and firm, elastic skin
- Healthy people with no life-threatening illnesses or other medical conditions that could slow or prevent healing
- People with specific goals for body contouring who are able to maintain a positive outlook
Recovery from liposuction looks a bit different for every patient, so Dr. Applebaum will walk you through your personal recovery plan. Recovery from liposuction often includes wearing a compression garment or elastic bandages over the treated area in order to control swelling and help mold your skin to your new body contours. In general, your recovery will include less than two weeks of bruising and will require very limited time off from work or exercise, so you’ll be back to your regular routine in no time.
