Laser Liposuction in NYC
Laser Liposuction in NYC
If you’ve been eating right and exercising but still have pockets of fat you want to get rid of, then laser liposuction in NYC with Dr. Lorenc may be right for you!
Do I Really Need Liposuction?
We’ve all been told that making healthy food choices and increasing activity can help us lose weight and lose unwanted fat. Right?
Have you been hitting the gym, jogging, trying that new Zumba or dance class; eating healthier – like opting for the “protein-style” burger – and skipping the elevator to take the stairs… with NOTHING to show for it?
If you’ve hit a plateau and nothing seems to work anymore, liposuction may be right for you.
After months of exercising and hundreds of smoothies, those last few pockets of fat around your midsection and thighs just won’t go away.
Laser Liposuction May Be the Answer
Imagine going into a clinic for as little as one hour on a Friday and going back to work on Monday with the sculpted body you’ve been longing.
All those pockets of fat diminished before your eyes and the right curves left behind.
Your body as you wished it… giving you the confidence to wear what you want, when you want.
Finally, those cute clothes you put away in storage months – or even years – ago can be worn again.
Shopping isn’t a burden any longer because everything you try on fits perfectly… like they were just made for you!
And you finally have the self-confidence and assurance to purchase that stylish bikini (or speedo) you’ve been eyeing for a while.
After doing everything in your power to get back into shape, like working out for months and eating the right diet, you deserve that slim and trim body to show for it, not stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t go away.
That’s why Dr. Lorenc offers the most effective solution… laser liposuction, in New York City.
What is Laser Liposuction?
Men and women in New York City and around the world, are turning to laser liposuction to reduce stubborn pockets of fat in a variety of areas on the body.
Laser liposuction is a safe and effective minimally-invasive procedure in which a tiny tube (cannula) is inserted through a small incision. The cannula then liquefies the fat tissue, allowing it to be easily suctioned out through the small tube.
Dr. Lorenc can target specific areas of the body where excess fat can be removed to reveal a slimmer, more contoured and slimmer appearance.
The cutting-edge liposuction technique perfected by Dr. Lorenc, uses the laser liposuction technology to soften and loosen the fat cells before they are extracted from the body using a micro-cannula.
Additionally, using the laser promotes skin contraction over treated areas, resulting in a firmer, smoother skin.
Laser liposuction can remove small, moderate, to large pockets of fat, depending on the individual’s physical desires and vision.
Areas Sculpted with Laser Liposuction
The areas of the body laser liposuction can target are practically limitless. It can be effectively used to contour, define, and refine:
- inner and outer thighs
- love handles
- bra fat
- chest (gynecomastia)
- under the chin
- and more
Am I a Candidate for Laser Liposuction?
The best candidates for laser liposuction are those at or near their ideal weight. If skin laxity is also an issue, it is possible that other modalities such as tummy tuck or skin tightening may be an option for you.
Individuals who have reached a weight-loss plateau after exercise and diet but are not near their ideal weight may also be considered.
During your consultation, Dr. Lorenc will review your medical history to ensure your candidacy and assess any risks.
Laser liposuction is not a weight-loss program, however, it is not uncommon for patients to lose a few pounds after the procedure.
Laser liposuction is appropriate for those who have stubborn pockets of fat, even after following an exercise regimen and healthy diet.
The best outcome for laser liposuction is that the patient must support it by an active lifestyle that includes exercise and a balanced diet.
Preparing for your Laser Liposuction Procedure
To help get your body ready for laser liposuction procedure, it is important that you are committed to a lifestyle that supports a healthy body.
As mentioned before, laser liposuction is ideal for those who are close to or at their optimal body weight – ideally under a BMI of 25 kg/m2 – and have isolated pockets of fat which are difficult to eliminate.
Following a healthy diet and exercising regularly prior to the laser liposuction procedure will maximize the effectiveness of the contouring results. Also, being in relatively good health and good physical condition also aids in a speedy recovery.
Each liposuction procedure is customized to each individuals body. Dr. Lorenc will discuss with you the details of your laser liposuction procedure, as well as, give you instructions on what to do and what not to do before the procedure.
Liposuction Procedure with Dr. Lorenc
Dr. Lorenc performs all liposuction procedures in his fully accredited, surgical facility in New York City.
Right before the procedure, Dr. Lorenc will make “topographic markings,” outlining the areas of the body which will be contoured.
Laser liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia and IV sedation, which makes it safe and low risk.
The duration of each laser liposuction procedure also varies depending on the number of areas of the body treated.
Laser liposuction procedures can take as little as 30 minutes. In the event that the treatment involves multiple areas, it may take up to 2 hours.
Dr. Lorenc has selected laser-assisted liposuction because it:
- uses very small liposuction cannulas, which help minimize bruising
- liquefies the fat cells before extracting them
- is has a skin tightening effect not seen in traditional liposuction
Laser Liposuction Recovery
Many patients get liposuction with Dr. Lorenc on Friday and get back to work by Monday.
Laser liposuction is an ambulatory procedure, meaning you’ll be able to walk out of the office shortly after the procedure!
We recommend nonetheless, that you bring a friend to assist you just in case.
You will need to wear a compression garment shortly after the procedure and you should wear it religiously for two weeks.
The compression garment maximizes your results, helping you attain the contoured body you’re looking for.
For week 3 and 4, you must wear the compression garment every to every other day.
During week 5-6, you should wear the compression garment only during exercise.
After 12 weeks, you should have achieved full results from your laser liposuction procedure… A slimmer, trimmer, more contoured body!
Laser Liposuction Side Effects
After your laser liposuction at Dr. Lorenc’s NYC practice, you may experience:
- Slight swelling
- Minimal bruising
- Soreness throughout your treated areas
The soreness will subside within 48-72 hours and the bruising typically resolves within 2 weeks.
You should be able to resume your normal activities and daily routine within 2-3 days, allowing you to go back to your life in no time!
How Long Do Results Last?
While body contouring results are immediate and should last indefinitely, it is completely up to you to help that happen.
In order for your contoured body to last, it’s important to maintain your weight and an active lifestyle.
We strongly advise to continue following a healthy diet and exercising regularly to maintain your contoured results!
