Liposuction

Liposuction with Dr. Margoles can help sculpt your body by removing unwanted fat from many different areas from your body. Some individuals can achieve their ideal physiques with diet and exercise while others struggle to realize their aesthetic goals. Persistent fatty tissue deposits can be localized on certain areas on your body, making these areas non-responsive to most health regimes.

Benefits

Anyone who desires a more proportionate body shape may benefit from undergoing Dr. Margoles' liposuction surgery. She also specializes in a cutting-edge liposuction treatment called Smartlipo which is a highly sophisticated laser-assisted lipolysis system.

Dr. Margoles' liposuction or Smartlipo procedures may be a great solution for patients looking to improve their appearance and remove unwanted tissue to create the body contours of their dreams.

Liposuction surgery can treat:

  • Arms
  • Neck and cheeks
  • Abdomen and hips
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs

Patients who desire a slimmer physique, have adequate skin elasticity, are in good health and have realist expectations for the outcome of their surgery are the best candidates for liposuction.

Your Liposuction Surgery with Dr. Margoles

Dr. Margoles begins her traditional liposuction procedure by making small, inconspicuous incisions around the treated area. She then uses a specialized surgical tool to break up and suction the fatty tissue from your body. The incisions are sutured closed once the desired amount of tissue has been removed.

Dr. Margoles is committed to staying on top of the most advanced liposuction procedures, which is why she offers her Smartlipo option at her Greenwich office. Liposuction surgery is unique to each patient, and Dr. Margoles can help you determine which procedure is most right for your situation during your consultation.

Recovery

With traditional liposuction, recovery times can vary but is relatively simple and straight-forward. You may miss 3-5 days of work but you can expect to be moving around immediately after your surgery.

Some discomfort is normal and can be managed with prescription medication. You can resume normal activities within 10 days of your surgery and you will be able to see the full benefits of your procedure over the next 2-3 weeks. Dr. Margoles will provide with specific care instructions for any surgical dressings that may have been applied to your wounds. Recovery may also take longer if you have multiple surgeries in addition to liposuction such as tummy tuck or breast enhancement surgery.

Some individuals can achieve their ideal physiques with diet and exercise, while others struggle to realize their aesthetic goals. Persistent fatty tissue deposits can be localized on certain areas on your body, making these areas non-responsive to most traditional weight loss techniques. In these cases, liposuction with Dr. Margoles can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from troublesome areas (such as the abdomen and thighs).

In addition to traditional liposuction surgery, Dr. Margoles offers a cutting-edge liposuction treatment called Smartlipo, which is a highly sophisticated laser-assisted lipolysis system. After meeting you and learning more about your liposuction treatment goals, she will recommend the approach she feels is best suited to your needs.

Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?

Patients who desire a slimmer physique, are in good health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of their surgery are the best candidates for liposuction. It is also important for candidates to have adequate skin elasticity, so the skin will hug the newly contoured body after liposuction.

Liposuction surgery can be performed on the following “problem areas:”

  • Abdomen and hips
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Neck, cheeks and underneath the chin

Your Liposuction Surgery with Dr. Margoles

Dr. Margoles begins the traditional liposuction procedure by making small, inconspicuous incisions around the treatment area. She uses a specialized surgical instrument called a cannula (a thin, hollow tube) to break up and suction the fatty tissue from your body. Once the desired amount of fatty tissue has been removed, and the treated area looks nicely contoured, she will close the incisions with sutures.

More about Smartlipo

Dr. Margoles is committed to staying on top of the most advanced liposuction procedures, which is why she offers Smartlipo as an option at her Greenwich office.

Smartlipo is a less invasive alternative to traditional liposuction. Aspects of the technology and the technique make it a safer option with less post-operative downtime. Smartlipo uses a special cannula that delivers thermal energy to the fat cells. The laser energy heats up and liquefies the fat, making it easier to remove from the body. As it works, the laser seals off blood vessels to minimize bleeding. The heat from the laser also stimulates the body’s collagen-production response, which has a skin tightening effect.

You may miss three to five days of work, but you can expect to be moving around immediately after your surgery. Some discomfort is normal and can be managed with prescription medication.

Liposuction Results

After surgery, the treated area will look tighter and more toned. You may find that your clothing fits better and you have greater confidence wearing a bathing suit or close-fitting apparel. You can enjoy your results as long as you maintain your weight.

Liposuction FAQs

Will liposuction help me lose weight?
Liposuction is not intended as a weight loss tool, and is not recommended for individuals that are overweight or obese. Suitable candidates should be relatively fit and near their target weight.

What areas of the body will benefit from liposuction?
Liposuction can be used to treat many areas of the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, hips, outer/inner thighs, back (i.e., bra strap area), male chest, upper arms, underneath the chin, cheeks and neck.

Can I combine liposuction with another procedure?
If needed, liposuction can be combined with another body contouring procedure, such as tummy tuck. Liposuction will provide “high-definition” contouring of specific areas of the body.

How much does liposuction cost?
Liposuction fees vary, depending on the type of procedure (traditional liposuction vs. Smartlipo) and how many areas of the body are being treated. Liposuction of multiple areas is more expensive than treating only one area.
