You exercise regularly and eat a balanced diet, but still are not happy with areas of fat on your body. Or, you have had a child and are trying to get back to your pre-pregnancy body. If so, you may be a good candidate for body contouring through liposuction.

Liposuction is an extremely popular procedure for both men and women. It is an excellent way to improve body shape and definition by removing unwanted fat from stubborn areas. Using advanced liposuction techniques, Dr. Ciaravino can eliminate fat from the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, and chin.

Dr. Ciaravino most commonly uses a technique known as tumescent liposuction. This involves infusing a solution of saline and local anesthetics into the area of fat before removing it. This technique results in much more efficient fat removal allowing Dr. Ciaravino to take more, in a safe manner. It also provides for an easier, more comfortable recovery with less bruising.

Tumescent liposuction is done in an outpatient setting, meaning you avoid a stay in the hospital. Dr. Ciaravino’s technique provides for a fast recovery. Most patients are very functional within a few days of the procedure. The incisions are barely visible. To allow the skin to tighten,  patients are instructed to wear a compression garment for several weeks.

While liposuction can help to sculpt the body to a more desired appearance, it should not be used as a substitute for proper nutrition and exercise. It is much more effective if done in conjunction with diet and exercise. Dr. Ciaravino will discuss these issues with you during your consultation.
